Does anyone have any helpful tips for playing bf1942 and/or dc on 56k? Something i could do to lower my ping? I havent tried playing yet, but is it laggy, what types of servers should i join to get the best experience?
Well first thing you do is get broad band please . 56k players just lag out games . ive been on a cable modem for years now and love it . but id love it more if you and the other 56k's decided to get high speed. :spank:
I wish that Dice would remove 56k support in a patch because all the servers now are crap. 180-400 pings. not fun anymore. Look at Midnight club II no 56k support. now thats a game
Yes, of course the evil 56k people lag your stupid asses. Why don't you join a server with auto ping kick then, if you hate them so much? Idiots like you are a waste of bandwidth
I played Delta Force on 56k for years. They are people too.
Why do you hate 56kers so much? I have it and not because i want to.. far from it. BT hasn't allowed broadband in my region of the uk, we can't even get ISDN. As soon as we can, we will get broadband but for now all i can do is wait.
As for getting better pings I find using a fast computer helps alot. On my dads 500+ ram one I usually get 200ish pings and can occasionly cope on even the 64 player servers :D However on my crappy one in my room I get really bad pings with just 4 people.
Also there is a ping tutorial here http://maniac.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/pm/ping.htm .. I havn't tried it but I hope it helps you. Let me know if it works :)
there right though. 56K, should not be supported in a game like this. They just lag out the server, and make it a waist of money for ppl that pay for highspeed. I cant hate them though, some ppl like you said cant get high speed.
it is nit possible for me to get high speed etither. dsl in my area is actually slower than 56k and the cable comp here suxorz.

Is it really that hard to join a server which kicks high-ping players? Seems so to me since you all complain about them "lagging" your games :rolleyes:
