hehe, i just LOVE the slightly, um.. how shall we say.... "potentially twistable" title of this topic! lol
well thanks WM for gettin this started up for me. god knows id have probably never gotten around to it .
there are a couple corrections i need to put on here; one is that im not getting the EXACT same ping on all servers. my ping is however a similar outrageously high number on all servers. it averages between 2K and 3K. ive had it as high as 4something if i remember right.
the strange bit is that whatever high number it happens to be it stays at that EXACT same number while im on the server and it doesnt go up and down any like a normal ping should. also usualy i can drive around like normal, im not stuck in one place and i dont get the "slide-show effect" either. i do however get the slideshow effect with everything else on the map.
so while i can see myself driving around smoothly (well as smooth as u get w/ 56K) the other tanks, projectiles, craters and so on are teleporting around all over the place.
hope that makes sense.
1) yes ive tried altering the netrate.
2) yes ive tried it w/ no other programs running.
3) yes ive contacted my ISP and they say all is well.
4) no i havent tried that wierd DOS based IP trace thingy cause its confusing and i dont think that would be the problem anyhow. (besides, im pretty much DOS-stupid ).
any help would be appreciated.
