Hey all, I'm playing BF1942 DC. I have wowway and a decent DSL connection. But I'm freaking frustrated. The enemy pops around the corner, will not even level their rifle at me and I hear the shot and drop dead. Seems like they are always a step ahead of me. What could be the deal here? Do I need a faster connection? I'm at 4368 kbps download/450 upload. 128mb video card. System has plenty of memory. Thoughts??? Allen

IF you connection is stable, and there isn't really any noticable in-game lag, I suggest some heavy singleplayer action with bots on increasingly harder AI settings, until you can comfortably deal with them.

Or, maybe the guys you play against online happen to be the calculating type, where they turn up the volume to hear footsteps. :)

It's got nothing to do with skill but thanks for the help...NOT! I'm getting shot up before I even see the guys or hear the shots at times, and this is at point blank range. I'm shooting guys up, their guns drop as a result and next thing you know I'm dead. Sometimes they'll round the corner and don't even level their weapons at me and I'm freakin' dead (they must be better than me...yeah okay). NEXT.

...I'd suggest trying a different server then.
