well thanks for all the info. as for slashinator. i agree with you that bF 2142 is a bad idea. i think they should go back and remake some of their old games like ww2 or a vietnam game again. or they should do the wars they missed like korea or ww1. i know there are mods but still there are no FPS games for korea and i think there should be a gmae for this war because it is called the forgotten war and i think the veterans of this should be rememberered. but this is way oof topic from my post. but it is great to talk about it.
I live in Newfoundland too and my ping is always 100 or more.
FrederfYour ping is the measure in time between sending info and getting it back from a server. In 1 ms even light can only travel 150 meters and back 150 meters. For a place 6000 km away, it takes light 40 ms to go round trip "as the crow flies" (the electricity takes a much twistier route) but there are lots of other delays involved. 56K uses technology that adds at least 60ms delay in the analogue-digital conversion, and every bit of hardware it goes through adds more time.[/quote] I'm sure you meant kilometers and not meters, but just pointing it out for those interested :)"slashinator"i rarly get in a server with less then a 150 pingI usually get pings of 18ms or as low as 10ms on servers in Germany, to give you an idea how tight that is; the node a few kilometers away from my house already takes 4-8ms. So no, the game isn't designed badly in it's use of the network stack. Funny enough I have never, ever had pings that low on FH servers in Germany, but that's probably due to placing, network connections and the server hardware.

Preferably into the server closet ;)
Hope it helps.
well thanks all of you for the info, i hope to be able to get on some servers without being kicked or too much lag.
polskaI used to believe that my ping would be slightly better when I turned down my resolution, since there is less up and download for the computer.
thats not because resolution affects down- or upload, its just because your PC has less work and responses faster to the incomming signals. this way FPS are connected with your ping.
tought you don't have the best PC then. but its not like pixel per pixel is transfered from the server to your pc - if it would be like this you would be able to play any online game on a super nintendo.
