    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
