Heya

We were about 1hr 30 into a game when we got a HUGE FPS type lag, SFPS dropped to 0 along with all clients to 0. It stayed that way for about 6-8 seconds then recovered.. then a few clients who had around 5k points had their points reduced to 0, and the team points had been reduced to 0, and stayed there for the remainder of the map.

Any idea what could cause something like this to happen?

edit: I know pre 4.0 when i sometimes joined a server sometimes each teams score would be 0, but would change to normal whenever a team got a point.

That sounds really strange. Did the same thing happen for multiple or all players? If so, so, were the scores cleared for the same players or different ones? I have no idea what could have caused this atm.

Oh, even more important: did the server also show the incorrect scores (e.g.in the results**.txt file or on irc

Ok, that pretty much cancels out netcode. It then seems that something computed a score increment (by damaging something for example) which resulted in an incorrect number. Was there anything particular about the affected players? Anything special happened right when this started? Are there any custom server mods or plugins?

The ingame score display (not the end-game one) will show 0 when the score is a long number, so it was that -2324234234 blabla instead of 0.

In case nobody else noticed it, they have a score of -2^31 - 1 which could indicate an integer overflow somewhere.

Well, score is float, so it'd have to be a float overflow, not an it.

Regardless, the scores on that final screen don't add up, and it seems unlikely that an overflow could happen to -2147483648 6 times (6 if you count team scores obviously).

Yes, I noticed it too. My guess is that it is a float NaN of infinity cast to an int.
