satellite + online gaming = YOU LOSE!

Yeah, because one of two things happens for your up-rate. You attept to send through your home satellite, which was NEVER designed to send data, or you conenct via 56k modem for your up-rate and that sucks anyway. But at least he'd have MAD download. And in the HL world, that makes you god because you are always seeing the updates for other players, but they don't get many from you, and that causes you to be the winner using the new net-code!

but the server would recieve a shitty reply from him as well, thus his response time would suffer greatly as well...

the server can't predict what he's going to do... not as you imply...

I currently have ISDN - decent but still i dream of broadband.

Sattelite for gaming blows. why? becuase it takes an average of 4 seconds from the signal to go from your house to the sattelite to the ground station to the server then back. 4 seconds = 400ms or 400 ping. And thats to start.


So for gaming 56k > sattelite
for pron surfing sattelite > 56gay

So ixney on the satteliteeee.

Trust me, i keep very aware of anything that can improve my situation.

Luckily i have been playing alot of Diablo2 and that is even fine on 56k so i see pings of 70-90.

in tfc im sitting around 80-100 for west coast, and 140-180 for east coast servers.

all tollerable, but by the time i get broadband ill have arthritis so bad i wont be able to type. perhaps by then, we can just telepathicaly tell our computers what to do. :\

Minor correction, 4 seconds = 4000ms. And yes, the delay in the signal path is the latent killer.

Nope Frost, it works better when you have mad down and no up. That's how I screwed around on my last TF server and made it look like I warped. I'd choke my out-going and let the incoming keep going. Remember how you'd even get rapid gun anims all at once? The netcode is all easy-pickings whether you're some 1337 hack coder or just some guy who knows the console. Now granted, my way isn't going to beat some OGC user, but it'd make it damn hard for him to kill me!
