recentlly, (like within the last 24 hours) my ping has been out of control.
i have nothing running, except sof][, but still i am pinging in the same servers that i play in daily at 350-700ms.
i ran some tests on my connection, and a bunch of other stuff, and everything is normal except for when playing sof][.
Problem with the server maybe ?? have you asked the admin ??
Hey man, wat ISP you with? My ISP has been having a few too many technical problems latley :lol: Well, yeah sometimes for a reason unknown to me my internet will just stop loading in a game BUT when i alt+tab and go into internet explorer that loads but yet the game dosen't OR maybe your ova ya ping? Just maybe! :naughty: Hope this helps:naughty: Dougamer:D
thanks guys, i figured out what it was.
it was some network service that was running. possibly crashed program remenants or something to that effect. but it wasnt and kind of virus thank allah.
anyway i closed it, and have restarted since, and it hasnt came back.
Thanks for the feedback :)
yeah i was gonna say ..your ping was pretty stable on our server.... My advce also to anybody: find out what the Capped rate is where you are playing. and Raise your rate appropriately ... sombody steeped on my server with a rate of 9000 yesterday ...we allow upto 25000, he was also using cable....OUCH.
I didn't make it!
what is a capped rate? same as for capped graphics card rates ( which I also dont understand...pls see newe thread) Ta very much for all and any help.
The Rate at which a server transfers information. the higher the rate , the smoother your game ....DSL and Cable function within certains rates...cable functions a bit better witha higher rate where as dsl is a bit lower. On our server, you can run your rate as high as 25000 for cable and about 20000 for dsl. 56k is about 4500 33k about 3000
Some match servers run max rate at 10000 though,just incase you have any problems.
