FOUND A LEAD HOW TO STOP RANK BUG?



  • I posted this little story before but - I was rank 9 then suddenly I get killed and my rank increased to rank 46. BUT I found what “thing” affect this I mean which file and exacly what numbers. Its file called UDKStats in My Documents/My games/Chivalry/UDKGAme/Config/UDKStats. When you open the file in text you will see something like this:
    [AOC.AOCStatWrapper]
    CacheAllExpValues=7165800
    CacheAllExpValues=6
    CacheAllExpValues=32
    CacheAllExpValues=5
    CacheAllExpValues=2
    CacheAllExpValues=1
    CacheAllExpValues=1
    CacheAllExpValues=0
    CacheAllExpValues=0
    CacheAllExpValues=7
    CacheAllExpValues=29
    CacheAllExpValues=33
    CacheAllExpValues=24
    CacheAllExpValues=4
    CacheAllExpValues=121
    bResetStats=False
    CacheAllExpValues=3
    CacheAllExpValues=0
    CacheAllExpValues=3

    [AOC.AOCDuelStatWrapper]
    CacheAllExpValues=60800
    CacheAllExpValues=25
    CacheAllExpValues=1
    CacheAllExpValues=1
    CacheAllExpValues=4
    CacheAllExpValues=41
    CacheAllExpValues=12
    CacheAllExpValues=109
    CacheAllExpValues=0
    CacheAllExpValues=1
    CacheAllExpValues=3
    CacheAllExpValues=53
    CacheAllExpValues=0
    CacheAllExpValues=0
    CacheAllExpValues=64
    bResetStats=False

    And what is important is the first number this one -> 7165800 its too hihg and it causes that my level is 46 instead of 9 but if i change it to 30800 and start playing online number will change itself back to 7165800. BUT when I play offline game, number wont change and in offline game I see that is my rank 5 but if I join to the online server I become 46 rank again and number changes back to 7165800. So this is the cause, this is reason why is rank level so high but i can not fix this by myself. Please if anybody got some idea or anything let me know. Thank you.



  • Yeah and I forgot one more thing - exacly the same file is in instalation folder of the game but there is different number and it does not change… that all I found.



  • That’s just how your experience is stored. You can change it up and down to change your rank but when you join a server it will always be overridden by the “correct” value stored online (otherwise you could cheat your rank).

    What really needs to be done is to find out what causes people even getting a massive amount of experience for no reason in the first place.



  • I’m no expert, but my guess on this would be that some informations might get modified somehow from the client to the server (probalby caused by bad connection/lag). Maybe the servers are the problem here?



  • yeah, but this cannot be hard to fix right? Well Im not IT specialist or something but I’ve seen much worse bugs to get patched, so I hope this will get patched soon as possible. Game is great but i do not want to play it this way.



  • Fortunately it looks like that bug only affects the total XP you have, without affecting number of kills with each weapon (every line after the first, before duel stats), so at the very least people could have their level reverted to a reasonable one by recalculating it based on total kills
