uhh... well need some more info...
what kind of conection is it on?
what are the system specs:?
so on.
Oh and I dont think you can change the speed on d/l's its slow on everyserver i join. most ppl just download maps/skins of websites like nalicity and fileplanet... etc...
If there is a program/tweak that could be used that would be awesome!

other then that, welcome to PuF...
Hope you stay and have some fun with us.

Ya I tired that still didnt fix it.

Caled up Microsoft on Sunday and they gave me a hot fix for the problem.

I Found out that it is not actually a Creeping ping problem. Its is s problem with Win2k deleting UDP mappings incorrectly or not at all. They gave me a hotfix that fixed everything.... Sort of Win2K still sucks A@#

Thanx for all the help

This section is from a friends server which we have inserted into our servers ini file. Find the section and put set it to these settings. After applying this on our Win2k adv. server the ping problems went bu-bye. Our max players is 10 and with a full server we tested switching maps about 5 times right after one another. At times the pings would shoot to 1000-2000 BUT they would drop down to normal within 30 seconds if not shorter. Under "normal" level changes though the pings stayed settled. I dont believe there are any other settings in the ini file that were changed? Might be some more but I think that this is all there is to be applied. Let me know if this works for you.

Thx for the ini Settings!!!!

Will try this to see if it helps.

After I applied the hot fix I no longer have the problems where the pings are 1000-2000 as you said. Now under a load and when map connects pings only jump by 30-50. Only rarely no do they ever reach above 400. I friend of min applied is running Win2k on advanced aerver and had same problems as myself and your a describing with 1000-2000 pings after connect for about 30-50 sec. Once he installed Win2K SP2 beta this no longer happend to him. Im trying to get the Win2k SP2 beat from him.. But he is resistant because it is not publically availble and would violate with "Beta" program agreement with Microsoft. Some Friend Huh???? Who cares about the Beta Agreement its just a UT server!!!! Sorry for the rant just pissed of about it...
If you want the Hot fix I used to see if it helps your server with the 1000-2000 ping problem just drop your email and ill send it. It also is not publically available. Otherwise Win2k sP2 beata should be out in about 4weeks publically in TechNet.

Thanx for the Help!!
