Why h2v really lags

[url]http://forums.xbox.com/gfw/technical_support/connection_networking/f/265/p/202113/1050492.aspx#1050492[/url] [quote]Now to the real stuff, a friend of mine contacted me today and told me that the serverlist was down again and that i should finally remake the serverlist. I had lost all my data and info on the serverlist and how i had recreated it beforehand, and that's when i found what i found. At first i thought that even Microsoft wouldn't go to this low of a level, but after rechecking i was shocked. This will probably be all denied but inside of halo 2 is a loop that goes every once and awhile to some "Advertising Sites" like Http://turn.com or http://zedo.com and http://ru4.com. When i saw that these were in there i was like "LOLWUT" the funniest part of it all was they tried to hide this information by combining the websites url forwards and backwards Ex.(moc.evil + live.com). here is a like that has the data straight from the memory (http://pastebin.com/zTi9zPvG), So i want to hear from GFWL why they are putting *** like this inside of there games and then say that its a persons fault that there games are lagging, when its in fact the game going to a bunch of advertisers for money.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] KIWIDOGGIE You have a virus/spyware/malware on your pc. End of story.[/quote] Hi. I agree with this. Though I wish the theory about MS were true, because they're horrible. [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] DusK If [i]you[/i] knew what you were talking about, you'd know this kind of stuff is familiar territory for Microsoft. Can anyone confirm that blocking these sites in your hosts file works?[/quote] Hi DusK. It is familiar territory to trick people and abuse their basic human rights, but this time I doubt it's their doing. Also, all of those URLs can be blocked in the hosts file.

  • I'd do it mainly because it won't do anything harmful we know of, but microshaft could release a patch to check the domain for traffic, or a sent check, and kick you off if it didn't return, but I doubt it. teh master server part is a little fishy, I'll wait for results before I judge it.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] DusK Can anyone confirm that blocking these sites in your hosts file works?[/quote] It'll cause the domains to resolve to your loopback IP, thus causing any network traffic destined for those addresses to essentially hit a dead end. Again though, I wouldn't take these findings at face value. His post gave me the impression that he doesn't really know what he's doing.* *specifically the part where he built a master server emulator and then totally forgot how he did it.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] KIWIDOGGIE You are seriously stupid. You obviously don't know how xlive.dll, network traffic, or spyware works. You have a virus/spyware/malware on your pc. End of story. You don't know how to filter network traffic at all. I know that xlive does not use any outside sources for anything or install any "ads" on your pc. You have viruses and are an idiot for even assuming that. Shut the -blam!- up and don't talk unless you know what the -blam!- you are talking about.[/quote] Settle down there, fanboy.

  • I don't play H2V, but this is a prime example of Microsoft at work.

  • I'm not buying it. If he's so sure of his findings, I'm sure he'll post up the technical details and dumps of the data that's being sent. [Edited on 02.08.2012 10:20 AM PST]

  • I feel as though I should be surprised at this...but I'm not... May have to look into this. I don't experience lag, unless it refers to the "join" lag whenever someone joins a game?
