the fault is with your connection to the NZ network.. not the server.. there are massive issues regarding the copper in the country.. can't say I complain about it.. as they already know it's stuffed :D

BIATCH!

Seriously though, for those that have an Nvidia Mobo: I suffered for a while with lag issues and spent alot of time talking with Orcon to sort it out. But with a little help from Althizor we eventually discovered that it was the Nvidia FIRST PACKET enabled that caused the problem.

DID SOMEONE SAY GOAT!??

Bleat bleat bleat, bleat (version2) bleat a bleat bleat bleat.

thats my graphics card.


Seriously if you want to reduce lag on servers some ideas as follows:

1) Prevent titan movement, this would stop the titans from being placed face to face and this would seriously reduce lag, it would also prevent mindless titan aa spamming, and excessive titan gun firing in general.

2) Rule: titans do not move past the first silo on a map, ok this is a compromise from stopping moving all together, but would or could be abit of a headache for admins as usually the commander is a bloody idiot and doesnt know wtf they are doing anyway (such ppl should refer to my titan commanding section in the newbie page)

3) Reduce the server count from 48 to 32, or auto kick the players once the server count has reached 44 say.

any thoughts? bleat bleat

old message was about lag spike but i'm putting a new spin on it can we set the server to auto kick high ping users? and if so what limit should we look at?

Auto kick on high pingers is a great idea; at the very least it will stop key SAF players having to divert their attention to multiple kickings, in the middle of a massive brawl :)

High pings should be set above 7m/s ;D :Ok Ok Ok, 300m/s
