      ping

      Post by bmg_123 on Sun Oct 17, 2010 7:37 pm

      hi everyone! i've been coming back to play here and there but it has been hard because of my terribile lag and my ping always being 300 and over. I didn't normally have bad lag when i played more often. I never play with other windows open so i dont think that is the problem so do you guys know any other ways to get a lower ping?

      Do you connect your computer through a phone line? Can you use your phone while you are online?

      Do you have Comcast or Verizon..

      OR satellite internet

      Or do you connect wirelessly on a computer to someone else around you or wirelessly at home?


      Connecting to someone else and a phone line will screw your ping and slow your internet down

      ping and latency

      Post by Radian on Tue Nov 09, 2010 12:19 pm

      broadband really helps - but if you dont have it , try my tips below

      Your settings

      It dosent matter?? wrong,very wrong
      This is the second most important part of the game/aside from your actual play
      since most core dumps can be down to a fraction of a second in timing,
      it is crucial that you give yourself the very best advantage of/fps/reduced lag/and cpu load
      try my settings if you dont believe the difference it can make
      Detail settings

      Font-billinear
      object textures-nearest
      Wall textures-mipmap nearest
      Floor texture-off
      True color textures-off
      Persp correction-off
      Smooth shading-off
      Alpha blending-on
      line antiailiasing-off
      polygon antial-off
      Floor detail-no floor
      dithering-off
      floor mirror-off

      Preferences

      Sparks-off
      explosions-off
      Sky movement-off
      show fps-on
      lower sky-off
      upper sky-off
      high rim-off

      if you are used to having all the bells and whistles on - it is going to look a little plain to you - but try it ingame at least for a few days ,then compare yoor results to having it all turned on

      I would have thought that those tips only affect FPS.

      yes it does give u better fps
      but if you have a low end comp it can also help with cpu load
      which acts like lag - but at your end
      give it a try - it may or may not give a noticable difference
      depending on your system
