Im missing out big time.

Everyones all hyped up about the release of 2.85, but sadly, im not.

Sure its great stuff, and i wouldent miss it for the world, and i'll be there on the 11'th to hear the radio, and join in the IRC party that will undoubtfully spring up, im even going to go get Gozilla sometime tomorrow, so im ready for when my modem craps on itself during D/L.
But in all honesty, its just a minor patch for me, i have given compleatly up on online play after i saw how sweet it could be on an ADSL installed at a freinds house, and just how big a disadvantege we 56k'ers really have.
I'll be there for the Team vs Regulars match, but thats prolly just about it.

All im whaiting for is more guns, better bots, and better framerates.

Am i really the only one who feels like this?

im sure all 56k'ers (me included) wish they had a phat pipe, but you just gotta use what youve got,
and hope you inherit some money one day. ;)

Yes, goat, we all share each others pain, i doubt i'll even be able to hold my own in the team v. regualars match.

Maybe i'll fly down to raek's house, boot him off his puter, and use his phat pipe, Regulars 1, Team 0 :D

Hmm. 56k is so bad ?
I've got DSL, but my pings at about 100 to 300, so it isn't really good. But this could be a Telekom-Germany Problem...arg.

@Iceman:
Did you experience probs with gozilla ?
The older versions were crap, but the newest runs very fine.

If you are good on a 56k you have no disadvantage. When I had a 56k I used to regularly beat all the cable players in Team Fortress. I even sniped with better accuracy than most cable snipers.

Yes i had problems with GoZilla, It would cut out every 3-5 minutes it wouldn't let me resume a download when it cut off, and most of the time it just wouldn't open, AND on top of all of that it wouldn't compleatly wipe it's self from my hard drive, i had to format my drive to get completely rid of it!.....So all in all i Hate GoZilla.

Oh and i would get cable if i could but there isn't a ISP for it in my area. There is only 1 ISP in my area and that is a 33.6k :( , And it SUCKS! It cuts off ALL the ****ing time and most time you can't logon anyway, and then if you can manage to log on it is a 14.4k connection :( :mad: :( !

Team Dan, I never thought of that!
/me runs out and goes to sign up for cable
Oh wait a minute, I don't have enough money, I guess thats the reason I don't have it, it's not because I love my 56k pings.

I love the smell of Napalm in the morning.

cable tv isn't even available where i live. so i don't think a cable modem would do me much good. i'm in the same boat. plus i'm stuck with aol. i figure though that on a plus side you learn to tolerate lag. where some of the cable ninnies start screaming they're lagged out when their ping reaches 100.

It's not the size of your ping that counts, it's how you use it. ;)

I have really fast cable, when I play online my ping is usually 20-100. That might seem all great, but a lot of times the slower people have the advantage since the server has to make up for them I will get horribly lagged when I go near them and they will kill me. When it's LPBs against LPBs, that's a different story of course.

Good luck GF, don't get DSL, get cable if you can, and get Gozilla, but not the new one. If you want the older one lemme know, I have it. It's from like Feb 2000 lol, much better than the new one. :)

The online code in UT is excellent. I play all the time on UT online with my 56k and get decent pings on most servers. about 150-250 which is very playable.
And as soon as cable is available i will get it. Its pretty dumb saying "go get cable" but if you cant afford it or it isnt available that is quite insulting.

Sniping in TFC is gay, not to mention HL has lag correction set on by default. The reason you snipe better than cable people is because the server goes "oh look, ROgue Leaders ping suck dik and nuts, and that guys an lpb, ill give him a mercy kill".

Then u think your leet and are like "hahaha, im a HPB and I own you all"

And they are like, lag correction is gay and so are you"


Something like that

ATeamDan, dont u think i want Cable u asshole!

If someone would just put down the ****ing cables, i could even get it 200 Dkr per month than what i pay for this sucky 56k!

And if i could just use the full potential of the 56k, it would all be peachy, but danish phonelines are the suckies suck that ever sucked, im not running much faster than the 33.6k Iceman should be getting (but aint either), and ofcourse it keeps crapping itself, so im reconnecting every houer or something (it feels like that anyways).

Next problem, yes, even a slow 56k can work for online play, but!, u gotta find a server near by, well woopdidu for u yanks, u can. Theres only a handfull of CS servers here in Denmark, so guess how many INF servers there are! thats right, not even one, and i doubt there will be for a long time, if ever.

If i had the opertunity, and was stupid enough not to take a 200 cheaper, but god knows how much better connection, then that stament could have been funny, but my hands are tied, theres nothing i can do unless i move to a place where Cable is awalible, but right now, i just dont have the 22,000 Dkr to get myself an apartment in the capital city (Copenhagen), and even if i had, i would be in a line waiting behind a few other hundred people just to get an apartment.

Denmark has a population of only 5 mill, but only 10% of that has access to a Cable connection!

Sorry for blowing all the steam in youre face Ateam Dan, but im just fed up with broadband pricks joking about "get a cable connection", im all out of humor in that department! :mad:

And wouldent u know it, as i was typing this, my modem craped itself once again...time to reconnect.

12th Mar 2001, 03:40 PM
Yup, :(

the fastest i have been up to is 3.85 Kbs, that made me bring out a beer and selebrate.

Well, since it has done nothing but **** me until now, im of to d/l 2.85 and the maps for the 4'th time.....i can take it if the d/l craps out after a few minutes, but every ****ing time it has stoped at 82% 95% 76%, so we are talking 7-9 houers worth of d/l time wasted each time.
Some of us have all the time in the world, but still have not been able to play :(
