The key for players to replay jellyfish video games could be broken, and that could result in key duplication.
Researchers at Purdue University have shown that the game keys can be duplicated at a high rate even after the original key is lost, even after it is replaced by another.
They have also found that the duplication is more likely to occur if a player tries to replay the game twice, which may lead to a key duplication event that leads to a game crash.
“It’s important to note that we don’t have a mechanism to ensure that the duplicated key is properly transmitted to the network, but that would not be a problem if the duplicates were to occur repeatedly,” said lead researcher Rui-Fang Wang.
“This is a problem for games like Jellyfish that are popular on the Internet, as well as for other similar types of video games.”
Wang and his colleagues have been studying the problem since 2015, and the findings were recently published in the journal PLOS ONE.
The team analyzed the data of 2,500 games played by 7,000 players in two experiments.
In the first experiment, they looked at the behavior of a key that was duplicated in one of the games.
The researchers analyzed the behavior and size of the key that had been duplicated.
They found that duplicated keys had a larger chance of being transmitted to servers, and they had a higher chance of hitting servers than the original keys.
In contrast, the size of duplicates was similar in all of the cases.
In both experiments, the number of duplicate keys that were transmitted to server servers varied greatly.
This could lead to key duplication events that lead to crashes.
The authors suggest that players should be careful when trying to replay their own games.
“The most effective solution for a key-to-key duplication problem is to have multiple key replications,” Wang said.
“If you can get a player to replay a game several times, that’s great, but if you have more than one player trying to play at the same time, it might be better to use multiple keys.
The key duplication problem can occur in any game, but it’s more common when a player replicates his or her own key than it is in the case of other types of games.”
