Soldier of Fortune Lower ping for ALL connection types, not just modems

This is more of a make-up that I have to do about the Ping-lowerer file that I reported yesterday... I stated that it only lowers the ping for MODEM users but in fact it lowers the ping for ANY connection, from cables to dsl and T3's. So if you have anything else than a modem, it's still a MUST have, click here to grab it. And again, sorry to all ya...

 

Soldier of Fortune Faster Online SoF Performance

Great news for everybody!!! Intruder was so friendly to give out a config file that he wrote himself. The program changes serveral options in SoF that you can't change in the game itself.
