View Full Version : lag what is that?
okay so you have to have a decent line to hold a server fo multiplayer, i dont think so , Computer spec 1.5 amd athlon, 512 ram, gforce 3 ,ISDN at 64k, ive held 12 people playing ofp, and no one moaned, ping on average 200 and i couldnt feel any!!

For lots of people, that's all they can get besides dial-up.
There is an interesting story on broadband in Europe on NEWS.COM:
Then</a> again, compared to Japan, even North America is in the stone ages. A coworker just came back from there, and NIT has most of the country wired using fiber, bringing 10Mbps access to virtually all residences.
You should try it with 12 people

there is no way ISDN can host 12 players with out large amounts of lag, it's what 2-3 times faster then 56k?
I've only seen IDSN at libraries and they had 4 Computers and web browsing LAGGED lol
lmao @<hidden> RN malboenuf emmm what year are you in mate, i think you'll find that most libaries use adsl now, or cable... and well ive been there done that so you can all believe what you want.

maybe it was so laggy that their complaints didn´t reach you?
ha ha no i can ashure you, every message goto me alright...

sorry they had lag, many are so acustom to it that they never complain and hope for best.
I'll put it simply, if Cable and DLS are having probems IDSN will have more, it's not faster then Broad Ban
It doesnt matter if you have Dsl or Cable, it depends on Isp, and your comptuers spec and RAM.
more ram you have the faster you can send and recieve information back to and from your modem.

yes on the CPU and no on the ISDN, you can only fit so much signal into ISDN, it's has a 10'th of the speed upstream that broad Ban has, don't tell us other wise.

RN u always got an answer to everything eh, i got ISDN and get better pings than some of the ADSL users, and i host sometimes with no problems...............
To host a game, one of the things you need is a good upload stream. With ISDN you just don't have that. So conclusion: ISDN host = laggy

We are palying on a 1,5Mbit line and we still suffer from a bit of lag when driving fast vehicles and choppers. Not the pilots/drivers but the passengers and gunners.... Still a shame that being a gunner in an Apache has to be a slideshow....
