What a great post. You win the prize.

As for flying and lag, I get none. You will eventually need to upgrade your P3 866mhz w/ Voodoo3.

I have a XP2200, 1GB of RAM, and a Ti4200-128MB, and a 3Mb broadband connection and even I get lag occasionally.

How many players on the server?

You shouldn't expect flawless preformance on Wolf, with 64 players. That hogs your CPU like nothing else. If you want less lag when dogfighting, get more ram, lower effects settings, and close down stuff running in the background.

We were on our clan server with about 10-12 people IIRC. My ping there is usually around 150. I like like Wolf because my ping is about 35-40.

I did not mean fights i meant fighters my bad. Thanks for the prize pal. Lol (note the sarcasim) Marked improvement with 22khz sound from 44, why is sound such a lagger?\ well i hope that when i upgrade my PC for my b-day it will stop. hoping for 1GB, Anlushac what video graphics card do you recommend for this game? unless a VisionTek Xtsay 9200 is good enough for now or do i need better?

Wolf has only 52 players, though we just started a new FH server for 32 players as well.

Sound is not laggy. Lag refers to internet latency and a "lag" in transferring information from one machine to another. Framerate drops, on the other hand, are connected to processing power, RAM and swapfiles, soundcards, etc.

Sound has never been properly optimized in the BF1942 engine, even in Vanilla, and FH sounds are probably a bit more complex to process. Add to that the fact that FH maps usually have a lot more ambient noise going on (IE: background sounds on the map) and you get "laggy" maps, although it has more to do with framerate and CPU/Soundcard interface issues.

What kind of sound card do you have? If you use onboard sound like I do, DISABLE the hardware accelleration and drop channels down to 16. It makes a BIG difference in visual performance and you won't have your computer slowing down as often.

What he said - lag is purely framerate issues.

I need it, most of the servers I play on and my Clans server are in Europe. Hard getting a good ping all that far away.

@Neighbor Kid:

Depends on what you can afford. The Nvidia 6600GT is considered one of the best bank for the buck deals right now. A ATI X700(basically the 9800 Radeon updated) or X800 would be good.

Your card is almost on the bottom of what I would consider playable now. Minimum I would get is a Radeon X300 (updated 9600XT), or a Nvidia 6600. Both cards can be had for close to $150. Of course the faster the better, if costs allow go fo faster.
