I downloaded the demo to see if JO would be good to buy. Unfortunately I have 56k and won't get cable for a while. They say it runs "smooth as silk w/ a 56k connection." Maybe that's so, but I've had some bad luck with the demo i got. Maybe itz a bad copy or has a corrupt file but I can't get it without askin a friend w/ cable to copy it for me. When I connect to Novaworld and join a game, it screws up as soon as i get in. When I first spawn, all seems right. Choppers, vehicles, and people run by and from my perspective, it seems like there is no lag. But as soon as i take my first step, it all goes crazy. Every second or so, i keep being positioned a few or hundred feet back and my direction changes every time. Even if i don't touch anything. I keep looking in a different direction. And at this point, i don't have to touch the controls and my character slowly moves in a random direction. My connection to the server always gets interupted every once in a while and when i finally do get away from the base waypoints, i continue having the same problems, only with constantly reloading weapons and other "glitches." After a while i can't move more than a mile per hour and need to hop like a bunny to reach destinations. I have reinstalled over 7 times. The funny thing is that when i first got it, it had all these problems. a friend came over and made an account and it worked fine. we tried different servers and even played in a few games with about 98 players. There wasn't that much lag. It ran unbelievably smooth for 56k. next day i try on my player accounts and all the above problems occur. i try on his account and by coincidence, it works. now it doesn't. i only got into a really small game yesterday. i always ping for a low ping. only gets as low as 190 most of the time. I was wondering if any one else had these problems? Does anyone even play JO w/ a 56k connection? I would like to find out so that i know if getting the real game would be a good idea or if i should wait an eternity until i get cable.
sorry but 56K is tooooooooooooo slow an slow is putting it lightly it is agame that requiers a 13kbs out going and 56k only sends out maby 1kbs a second. u would haft to play with one other persion.
a low end DSL is not even able to paly with more than 10 people i am ona 1,5 mb line ani can only support a 40-50player game and i got a top of the line computer i bulit.
I see, but then why was i able to play a few (very few) times with almost a hundred people?
mostlikly all th people had hi speed internet so u were not geting an drop from any one an u were able to keep up is a mistry to me.
but if u can get in a game more power to you but it might lag other people.
I got calbe and here is my spec p4 2.4ghz 512ram ATI radeon 9000 128mb maxtor 60gb Hd Intel mobo Xp pro I join server with a ping of 30ms and get horrable lag:mad: . do you know how to fix this?
for some resion i got to set my graphX leves to super low then i can join a game but i max out at 50 people, wheni try an get into a big game it is choppy.
i got a p4 2.2ghz atir radion 9600 se 512 SDram 100GB HDD XP pro 1.5 DSL line
i found some 5ms ping servers. and they seem to bee the worst but the 50 an 60ms are ok as long as there inder 50 people
I never really knew that it lagged with cable that much. I've got a geforce 4 mx, so i think i need to upgrade... (and get cable sometime) my compy is a p4 2.6ghz w/ : gf4mx, 512SDram, 160GB HDD, XP Pro, and a crappy 56k modem.

I have quite similar sys specs p4 2.4 ghz 512 ram radeon 8500 broadband You need more ram i think, I get the same prob since theres alot of strain on my ram so when it jitters it needs to catch up and there for u get lag but I dont get it that much on 64 players servers so i stick with them.
I have got AMD Athlon 2700 XP [tis ovrclocked] 512RAM Geforce 4 MX440 [128mb] 80GB HD 560k Bband And it still lags like hell, I want to know what setting I shoukld have on, to prevent lag. Currently I'm running on lowest res, lowest on all settings. And I'm sure I can do better than that.
try joining a high ping(100ms-200ms) an not to meany people (20-50people) then see if it is as laggy.
