View Full Version : Synchronization error
09-16-2007, 12:09 AM
I've been able to play one game so far without having a synchronization error. It was Novus vs Novus. It seems, for me, that I get a syncronization error within 10 minutes of starting if Hierarchy or Masari is in the game. I haven't been able to try another Novus vs Novus game because I don't really like Novus >_>

Went back and tried to see if there was a specific reason for my syncronization errors. I tried all three races, and I got a sync error every time I played (my friend was helping me and played Novus every time). When I was Novus and Masari I was able to play the longest until I got the error. When I played as Hierarchy, however, the error happened as soon as I finished summoning a walker, any type.
My friend has gotten sync errors before too but he said it was usually before he could build anything.
Before I sometimes got sync errors right at the beginning of the match, but none in this set of testing.
I think I'm going to have to wait for a patch before I can test anything else >_<

I have been getting numerous sync errors as well. I am on a hi speed land line (university internet). My ports are forwarded through my linksys router, and The program is allowed through the firewall. I have gotten these synchronization errors both at the very beginning of a match and halfway into.
Perhaps a "lag box" should pop up when there are sync problems a la how battle.net does it (warcraft III and Starcraft). Perhaps the sync problems are happening because of a problem with the GFW servers? Or because the game is simply taxing? I'm not sure, Im at a loss.
I am running Vista Home Premium, 3gb ram, e6600 intel dual core, geforce 8800 GTS.

Compatibility tests: With no compatibility, or on Windows 2000 or NT SP5, the game exits to the desktop when I choose Custom Match.
With Windows 95, 98, Me, I can play past that but get numerous other errors. The biggest one, synchronization error detected, happens every time I play...if the game loads and doesn't stay at the loading screen.
For Hierarchy, I get the error if either side builds a Walker (any type). The error comes up as soon as the walker gets to 100%
For Masari, the error appears to happen when either side builds the highest rank vehicle (Peacemaker?). I have not built one on my side so I'm not certain yet.
The error happens when I play as Novus as well, but I can't pin down a particular cause yet.
