Velocity is not reliable (not deterministic enough)


Recommended Posts

Hi all!


I'm coding a multiplayer game with server verification and the first thing you need when doing so, is a deterministic environment. And my issue is that velocity seems not to be even remotely reliable...


I made a sandbox to illustrate my issue : http://phaser.io/sandbox/edit/vLcJZUDX


You can see that from frame to frame, the delta x (in px/s) is really different. 


I could set the x and y myself (without using velocity), but then I would loose the collision detection, which I want to use, of course.


Am I using velocity wrong? Is my sandbox poorly done?


Thanks a lot guys!

Does phasor automatically fix step or lock the loop time?   Basically make your game logic run at a constant speed.    That's my immediate thought when seeing the game.


A second thing I've run into is that if you're counting time up for your fixed step(then suptracting when you actually run game logic).   You might not be aggressive enough in using your accumulated time, or your game logic is longer than your game step(unlikely).


I think it's likely something related to time.


I've also seen the same thing happen with bad key board logic.   Are you sure the the keys are staying registered as down?



EDIT:  whoops thought I was in general discussion, haven't used phasor so I might just be misleading you if phasor is high level as keeps you from controlling the above.
