Beta Test - Help Scee

97 Replies 3,035 Views Created 06-06-2007
Hi guys, SCEE needs your help. We would like to get a better understanding of our user’s broadband connections. In order to do this we need you to test and record your connection and send the information back to us. If you are interested in helping, there is guide below which will give you all the information you need. The Beta team have secured some prizes and these will go to the first 100 users who correctly submit their details. Please note that you do not have to participate and it will have no affect on your status as a Beta Trial member. SCEE Network Recording Trial. We require your in recording your internet connection using the tool via the link below (this is a direct link from the manufacturers website). This tool will only record your internet connection, it does not collect any personal data, it will only record minimum, average and maximum ping times for a set period of time. See below for an example of the captured data. 420.00 420.00 420.00 The data recorded will be used by SCEE PLAYSTATION®Network TRC Test department to test all online games across a varied set of recordings. The recordings are used by an application called ‘SHUNRA VE’ This application is also used by several leading publishers in the software industry and has become a very valuable tool to simulate a consumer type network environment. Where Can I Get this Tool? You can download tool from http://downloads.shunra.com/VENetworkCatcherLite.zip Problems I am seeing 100% Loss! You might need to allow this tool to access your firewall and you also may need to allow pings to come back to your computer. What Not To Do If at all possible, do not attempt to download any files or play any games online whilst you are using this tool, the data recorded will not be useful as it will introduce high latency (pings) in to the recording and this would be of no use to test future online PS3 titles. SCEE require a recording to be as clean as possible with hardly any network traffic on your connection. How To Use This Tool: The screen shot above is the actual tool that you will be using to record your network configuration. Enter an IP address or URL. Sample Interval, please leave at 1000. Recording Time: You can leave this at 900 seconds (15 minutes) or enter a higher or lower value. Packet Length: change this to 1472. This box will display a graph of what is going on with your connection during the recording session. Click this to start recording. Remaining amount of time before the recording ends. At the end of the recording, this tool will stop automatically and you will be asked to save the file. Please supply the following information which will be used for our records. ISP (Your Internet Service Provider) Internet Connection Type (ADSL, Cable, PPPoE, Fiber, other) Country Speed Of Internet Connection, e.g. 1024KB downstream and 256KB upstream. Send these details to betatrial@eu.playstation.com. Cheers,

I probably won't make the first 100 (have to work till 5 o'clock), but I'll send the details when I get home.

Just a quick question, by 1024KB do you mean bits or bytes? Cause that's a huge difference.

Mine is sent, although I think I clamed my connection to be 8196KB downstream rather that 8196Kbit... I'm not going to bother sending it again, I'm sure whoever looks at it will realise!

I don't think that something serious will happen if you include this small size file into your email :)

I'm assuming this is meant to be a general test and has been put in the Home forum inadvertently?
