Hey all!

I'm currently investigating a bug where some players don't get GUIDs generated when joining the server.

It's rare enough to be impossible to repro myself so I hope you can help me fill the server for a couple of rounds.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Update: We have a likely fix for the above issue but need to fill the server for a while to confirm.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Update2: The issue is confirmed fixed, expect a global release of the fix within a week.

Thanks for all the help!

I can see how this is important, but there's sooo many other major, game breaking bugs than this.

Hard to ban a hacker without a GUID. This is actually important imo

You're absolutely right...i'm just saying, if the game is having all these issues, i think they need to be addressed first than this. We won't have to worry about hackers when people stop playing in general. But I do like that Dice comes on here asking for our help.

And how do you know how important this is in relation to other bugs? Do you have the list? Can you share it with the group?

GUID = Globally Unique Identifier

I would imagine in a game like BF4 there is quite a lot in the code that hinges on your GUID allowing the code to specifically identify you. If you don't get one, that's a very major problem.

My point is you have no idea how big a bug this or where it sits in their bug list but are first in, 90 seconds after the post is made, declaring this as some sort of waste of time.

And people wonder why Dice don't come to the forums.

There might be some truth to this, but you nor I would never really know because we both are not devs. But it does make sense and i'm glad they're on here asking for our help. But you also have to understand the frustration...I'm a server owner and since the last patch, my server is having a hard time now.

lol fix the one hit kill bug first then move onto the 10hz tick rate detection problem then maybe only then you can start to look at guid problems.

another point is i thought guid's were punkbusters problem?

As a server owner I would have thought GUID issues would be right at the top for you?

PB banned player joins server, GUID not issued, player hax to hearts content

I hear ya bro, but ZombieP3nguin does have a good point...any little bug can cause the whole game to be our of sync. Who knows, maybe they fix this issue, and the game will feel better.
