When I'm corping, I usually press F3 as soon as it's obvious how exactly the runner is getting into the server. For some cases, that's as soon as the run is started, if all the ICE is rezzed, the runner has a permanent breaker for it all, and there's enough cash on hand to do it.
Now, netrunner math can get convoluted and the OCTGN in-game log isn't exactly light reading. So, what I'm doing as a runner is handling all the ICE and then, as soon as I'm done, pressing F3 as a sort of "ok, I'm done, feel free to check my math" signal - I'm not the kind of person who hammers F3 repeatedly so that the pop-up comes up, and even if the corp takes a long time I usually ask in chat about a possible disconnect before hitting F3 a second time. But that first time, that's reflex and part of inputting the way of handling the last piece of ICE at this point.
That's a good way of looking at it, thanks (this is exactly what I was asking for earlier). In your eyes, is this situation comparable to things like IRL piling on all your credits on your ID in a huge mess, or people that have facedown corp discards not clearly discernible from faceup discards (think a neat stack of cards, only some facedown and some faceup, and it being impossible to tell without physically going through the archives)? (please note that the rules are pretty explicit on how you're supposed to set up your archives)
For the record, all five of the people I've had this problem with were very aggressive about it, outright insulting me after the first time the sound got played for daring to have pressed f3 at all, as if it was some ungodly thing and not an actual part of the game.
Interesting... would you still consider it bad sports and showing impatience if the sound were more pleasing to the ear? As described above, I've always viewed it as an "I'm done with the math" signal. If it's less about the f3 and more about the sound itself, perhaps it's time for @db0 to indeed change it and be done with it.
There's literally nothing the Corp prefers to rez at 4.1 that it could rez at 4.3, the distinction is often important, and the only way to tell between those two timing structure points is my commitment to accessing.
(btw, Caprice has to get rezzed before the last piece of ICE is handled )
Nope, the way OCTGN is set up the clients only exchange triggers, the assets are taken from the local client. You hear what you have on your computer, they hear what they have on theirs. Unfortunately (in this case, fortunately in many others) the other person has to do the tweaks.
