Some newbie ish questions about MP?
1)How can I tell if a server is running a certain mod (Jedi PLUS for example) before attempting to connect?
2)Is there model dismemeberment in MP? I've played on several different servers and played against bots with g_saberrealisticcombat1 on. Is there some other option that needs to be turned on or another code or something, or is it just not possible?
3)[sarcasm]You mean no one ever plays CTY games? I'm shocked.[/sarcasm]
4)Can someone please explain the concept of "PING" to me and tell me how to make it better. (Short of getting Broadband or DSL)
Thank you for your time.

1- If you are running the mod, there should be an option (i think it was "game type" or "show" and was "All" by default) which you have to change to show only the servers running the mod. You could also look at the servers description to find out.
2- g_saberrealisticcombat 1 is SP only, in MP you need g_dismember 100 and cg_dismember 2 (the first one is server-side).
3- Of course (whats the point of the game w/out the force? :P)
4- Your ping is the time (in miliseconds) which takes the info to reach you (ie a 500 ms ping would mean info reaches you 1/2 second late), you can reduce it by closing anything internet realted (AIM, MSN, ICQ... anything which uses your connection for something).

Alesh has those answers pretty well handled. Another thing about your first question is you can tell if it's a mod or not by typing "fs_game" while in-game. If it's a mod it will tell you the mod folder name via that command. If it's not a mod it will be blank or say base.

ya, ping is the delay of transfer of data between u and the server, so if ur dad is dling something or something like that, the delay will be more, unless ur using t1 or faster or the dl is slow...... well u get the point? also its funny when someone is the dedicated server, and joined his own game, his ping usually stays under 100, even when others are 999, his ping cud be 1=10 most of the time
