  • This function has been found to be currently unreliable the output is not as expected when compared to the client. Therefore this function should not be used as a packet loss kicker.


Gets the packet loss percentage of a player. Packet loss means data the player is sending to the server is being lost (or vice-versa).

playeridThe ID of the player to get the data from.

Return Values:

The percentage packet loss as a float. 0 if player not connected.

Example Usage:

public OnPlayerCommandText(playerid,cmdtext[])
    if(!strcmp(cmdtext, "/packetloss"))
        new szString[144];
        format(szString, sizeof(szString), "Packets lost: %.2f percent.", NetStats_PacketLossPercent(playerid));
        SendClientMessage(playerid, -1, szString);
    return 1;


Anything greater than 0.0% should already be a cause of concern. Anything greater than 1.0% is outright bad.
