View Full Version : Epic fix your code

I am having the same problems that the wraith is having. I play for a couple of minutes and sure enough that damn red icon pops up. I went out and bought a modem. No change. Then I went out and bought a new telephone line, filter, and changed ISP. Same thing. AAAARRRRRGGGGGHHHHHH By now I'm pissed. I tweak my modem, download easy-mtu. NO DIFFERENCE. What the hell. So I go to work where they have ISDN. :-) I figure I'll find out real quick what the hell is going on. Download the demo and crank it up on a crappy ATI Rage piece of **** and guess what. SAME THING. Even on ISDN this damn red icon pops up. This is ****ed up. I play Q3, Q2, Q1, h/l, heretic2, hexen2, no problems. Start UT online and that ****ing red icon pops up. EPIC fix your ****ing code. I've been waiting a ****ing year to play this ****ing game and its ****ed up. Godamit I hate Q3 and I'm tired of waiting for SOF or TF2 to come out, so fix the ****ing code. I ****ing upgrade my system to an Pentium3 600 w/ GeForce 256 and 256 megs ram and the only thing I see is that ****ing red icon. Fix the ****ING CODE......... I feel better already.... Thanks for letting me blow off steam... :-)

While online pull down the console and type "stat net" and this will show you a lot of data on what is happening like your ping, packet loss, and net speed. Your net speed should be about 2600 by default so if your not seeing any packet loss try going to a higher net speed by typing in the console "netspeed 3000" as an example. If you have packet loss then lower the net speed. The game plays just great on a 56k dialup here at home with pings up to 450, and most servers ping in at about 200-250.

Finally you said you have tweaked your modem but have you been to this site? If not then do the tweaks and you will see the difference.

UT and geforce don't play nice together (from what I gather)
