that was the most people i've ever seen on a server. And my ping could feel each one of them, but it was still playable i thought. Also, I'll get the pics and the screenshots of that DDM up on my site as soon as I can. I need to do some of my HW first though since, I feel bad that i haven't started yet.

Best DDM ever? Hardly. I could never play for more than 5 minutes at a time - ping usually at 300-400 - without crashing my computer or the ISDN modem.
LDA, have you _very_ thoroughly checked your netcode? My ISDN adapter _never_ does that, except when playing TM.

thanks to all that played! the clan thing
didn't work out, so we played DM on the team
HomelanDM server. first few games were a joy!
and the later ones, too! i actually won
a game (even without the shadow ) although
i had severe lag! (you know..."c'mon!
i hit fire! - oh, there it is..!)

then about 6 of us went and did some racing.
that was cool... i think that was the 3rd
or 4th time i raced ever! fun!

anyway, my screenshot of scores didn't turn
out - same tiny bitmap... i have to set this
up right for next time!

Black Widow Lance all the way, baby!

Damn! I missed all the fun! I had to do some things around the house and I couldn't get back in time. I only had a chance to play 1 match, but it was a blast.

Can't wait for the next one, let's do this every week. Seems even on short notice , we had plenty of participants. (a.k.a...targets)

My ping was 200-400, but it was still playable. I found that it was much better at a higher netrate.

Also, my brother was playing too (he was Stuart), and we were both running through a linux server i setup for netsharing.

I have an ADSL connection (128up/960down).

What would happen if everyone increased their netrate? Would it just give everyone more bandwidth?

it would suck up more bandwidth
