CS:S In-game voices are cutting out.

Post by doulos9 » Sat Sep 27, 2014 8:21 am

We have encountered an issue that I have not been able to figure out.

In-game voices cut out when ever the server gets more that ~26 players. This began about 10 days ago.

I have tried the following:

1. Updated MM:S and Sourcemod to latest stable versions (this caused a plugin to quit working so I reverted)
2. Unload plugins one at a time to see if there was any changes. (all plugins currently running were all running before this issue started.

CS:S Windows 40-slots
Metamod:Source - 1.10.1-889
Sourcemod - 1.5.4-4055

At the time of the issue server box CPU <21%, RAM 4GB+ available so it is not the server.

Any suggestions?

Does everyone see the voice drop out at the same time or is it just a select few users at random times? Also during these drop outs is anyone noticing any spikes in latency or any choke/loss in net_graph 4?

My guess would be poor server rates.

Can you post your server.cfg, omitting any sensitive information/passwords.

I don't see anything wrong with that server.cfg. I notice you have no hostname set, do you have another config overriding your server.cfg?

Just deleted it so as to not advertise.

If something doesn't change I am probably going to wipe the server and start over.

What is the server IP and the best time to experience the issue? I would like to check it out.

Server is slower than usual today because of football. Hasn't reached the 26 players yet.

clanfga.game.nfoservers.com:27015

Usually, 7:30-10:30 PDT it gets 26-40 players.

Not totally sure yet, but it seems sv_use_steam_voice 0 has resolved the issue.

Thanks for your help.
