View Full Version : [K2: Generic Error] getting unread bits sometimes when joining MM-games
02-09-2011, 07:50 AM
I get error message saying unread bits and a very high number, last was 19000, sometimes when a MM-game Im in is starting. When I try to rejoin the game I get to 75% on the loading screen then I get unread bits again and a higher amount. It happens mayby 1/8 games I play and only in matchmaking.
Restarting game or cpu doesnt do anything. 2/4 times Ive tried to restart the router Ive gotten into the game again.

Could you try running Wireshark (a network analysis tool). Try to get a snapshot of the network data from when you're getting the unread bits error. Then, search through the dump to see if there's corrupted packets.

¨Yea I installed Wireshark but I didnt understand anything of the instructions how to use it....
any easier way to find out what the problem is?

You could try reinstalling. As the wiki says, unread bits are often caused by outdated mods or a corrupt install. If you read the wiki you should have done that already, though.

Im gonna try reinstalling the game, Ive search around on the forums and I havent found anything about unread bits, the wiki isnt that easy to find stuff on though....
Noticed today that every now and again the error-message says Unkown entity: Bad snapshot, if that says anything to you
thanks for the help

Let us know if reinstalling works.

Hi again, I have reinstalled the game and I havent had any problems with unread bits the last 10-15games so it seems it worked
There is another matter however that Ive completly forgot to mention.
When in matchmaking, mostly when playing with friends, when we are in queu I go offline even though I am still online and I have to relogg and we have to queu up again
My guess has always been its the chatserver cause that have been a problem since I played the beta, that I get disconnected from it.

Sounds like a connection issue to me. Can you post the details from the wiki page on network troubleshooting please?

Hi, my problem almost went away so after I couldnt find the page you are refering to I just learned to live with it, but now after the DDOS-attacks it has flipped out completly.
Would you mind linking the page you are refering to cause I cant find it either on the real wikipedia or the honwiki, when I search for network troubleshooting I get nothing on both so Im not sure what info you need
