    I second Diego's suggestions.

    I think one of the reasons Snipe's server has been laggy for many of us it because it is connected to a residential RoadRunner cable-modem (65.24.177.27 resolves to cpe-65-24-177-27.columbus.res.rr.com). The pings are misleading since, although the server's download speed is about 4,000k, its upload speed is only about 384. Plus the fact that he hosts other game servers at that location. And on a cable modem, traffic flows only one way. Whenever there is data coming in, no data is going out. On a T-1, the data transfer speeds are slower (about 1500 each way), but it turns out to be a lot faster since upload and download can occur at the same time. there are no interruptions during the transmission causing vehicles to disappear then reappear.

    My server is on a cable modem as well, 5meg down and 768K up, but it is the only server I am running on the connection, I need to try a change and see if i can get the stats working, I also think Diego1203 has a good idea.

    No .. my upload is 1mb. But you are right... UW is hardly the only thing that is hosted on it :p I agree with shimp tho... I think alot of the old UW files are lingering around.... not to mention I dont think the unwheel.ini file I am using is fully cleaned up either from the old UW stuff. I just deleted what I could find as fast as I could so I could get the beta server at least up and running. If I have time this weekend I will try cleaning it up some more and try to track down whats wrong. I was hoping if it is server related shimp could point me in a direction with the errors! (*I do notice durring startup of the server is tried to load files I deleted... might be an issue right there... not sure why though because I removed the lines from the Unwheel.ini too....)

    Servers must have to restart to activate the world stats, I enabled the world stats but didnt reset the server till last night. Makes sence, must be a setting when the server first connects to the master server.

    i kinda agree with this. since we are all spread out all over the place its hard to get more than 2-3 players at once for testing. i dont know about linking to it in a thread though (if you want to keep it 'forum users'). pm the forum users that have over say 15-20 posts within the unwheel subcatagorie here... otherwise we'd get a lot of new ppl that have not even played, maybe. i know i have linked some people here and mainpage in case they are interested in the new version.

    we need more testers on at once. i still only played wrecker 3 times and first time was offline, 2nd with shrimp and 3rd with steve and he thought we were doing a roamer game :p ;)

    I think if we open it up it HAS to be with people who have PLAYED the version prior to the beta. IF you open it up to everyone you are going to have a bunch of bug reports that are just user error with setting it up most of the time and not real bugs due to the beta. I say keep it a private test still... but open it up to a few more regulars and keep it away from anyone new for now. Im sure shimp has his hands full with the bugs we have found so far anyway :p I must say.. I am looking forward to an 8 player wrecker game tho ;)

    True, maybe just by request. Hey snipe, my server is like 10 times louder than my game machine LOL, I have 11 fans (counting chipset, HD, case, video card and cpu fans) in my game machine and the 2 on the huge heat sink in my slot a athlon 950 (server) far overpower my game machine, only in noise naturally.
    LOL

    Edit: Check out this bad boy :D

    Wanna see a real HSF .. check out this puppy I have on my gaming machine .. hehe..... Pic is kind of fuzzy, but then again its just a cell phone camera and does not like the backround light much. (BTW .. thats and old school slot style you have there jerdaygo.. I have not seen that in a long time :) ) Also, oddly.. that fan on the CPU makes 0 noise what so ever :p

    Actually, my real machine isn't too different from it. Its a refurbished DELL Dimention (dementia?) 3000 with a 128 FX-5200 card. I have to have ALL of the eye candy stuff turned off in order to play. Frankly, I prefer to spend my money on other stuff. Just this week for example I've spent nearly US $4,000 buying parts for my dream bicycle, which I plan to assemble next week. But I can never see myself spending nearly that much on a computer.

    Here we go... finally dark enough for a good pic from my cell phone. Does not show the UV so well and shows the fans slightly brighter than they are.. but you get the idea ;) :D I also have a blue cathode on the bottom which I have off at the time of this pic :p
