    Okay, heres a couple of ideas:

    1) Many of you probably remember back in the days or pre-2.85.5 with the online invisibility bug. I know this was fixed, making players for the most part visible when playing online. However it comes at a steep performance hit! (this is for those of you who hadn't noticed :rolleyes: ) hence the pretty bad pings...

    Is it possible to make the online player detection thing a server side option?
    If possible, the admin could decide whether they want a fairer+laggy server or a not quite so fair but faster server
    I guess this ones going out to beppo to see if this is possible, because hey the invisibility bug was never an issue on some maps

    2) The other though is to PLEASE bring back the player speed slider option so the host/server can decide whether they want current run'n'gun game or to slow it down to like 65%-75%player speed just like in 2.75 (believe me, does wonders for teamwork and slowing the game down...literally :cool: )

    yeah?...i mean..come on... :p

    (oh, and incase any of you think "hey whos this n00bie tellin us what to do with this mod?!?!, ive been around for quite a while (early 2.xx , i just dont post much :D )

    </sarcasm>Well they can turn off player visibility to play in a raw dark environnement, to have a faster server too.. </sarcasm>

    what? on the web based admin thingy? i never could get that to work :p, but im talkin about on the Server Config button in the game...

    if its already there, then i'll admit im a moron, if not then where would i find this wonderful option?

    But yeah, the Second idea still :)

    Um...Um...I've actually noticed BETTER ping at times with 2.86, both on my 28.8 and over at a friend's house on DSL.

    (maybe better then 2.85.5 when the invisiblity bug was first fixed, but unlikely better than before that)
