Im getting pissed as much as one can here. What the hell is the problem? I have at&t ultralink cable, with a 1000mhz proc, 512 ram. I dont get it! It runs great when i get in and then it hits the shits to 1023 ping then goes down and up down and up. Has anyone else been through this hell? I am using windows 2k pro sp3.:mad:

I have the same thing...

Ive tryed all the tips on these forums and other forums..

Am on adsl connection..

And the game runs fine for the first 5 sec's, then the dreaded 1023 ping

I notice when pressing Alt + Tab then going back to BF1942, your ping will be nice for about 5 seconds..


Then bam 1023....

I do the alt+tab thing to. You know I have noticed something funny, I played on a server with 60 people, and had no lag!? I played on a server with 2 to 5 and got the 1023. Do you guys think it could be a server to client, hardware configuration or non compatability issue? I do have my sack opts, rwin, mtu, mss, and all of that configured right for optimal speed. Im thinking it must be certain servers hardware and client. This is the only thing I can think of. Thanks fo ryour help so far, I wanna get to the bottom of this hehe :)

Yah, well i tried tweaking my graphics in the game first. That helped me some. Then messed with the sound, no dice there. So I went into my biso to check some video settings, I had some wierd idea it was a video problem for me, but also did a couple other things. First, I dont use a usb mouse or keyB. There is an option in my bios settings that will let me turn this on or off. It was under my optional features. Then made sure all my bios shadowing and caching was at the default level. Agp agepure? I think thats how you spell it, I set that at 32, I have 512 RAM pc and 64 on my video card and its DDR. I made sure that my memory hole was disabled, and AGP 4X was turned off. AAfter doing all this I booted the beast up and got into a game and cried the most wonderfull tears of joy as a sprayed bullets of 1023ping resentment, and planes were flying out of the skies! I was on top again! Driving tanks with smooth FPS and deleviring artillery barage with care. hehe. I hope this has helped you. If you do not know how to go into your bios and change setting, you should have a trained tech look at it, or talk you through it, say if you own a dell or a gateway etc. Im a league manager now for the International Gaming Syndicate and looking for admins! We offer alot of game genres and alot of competition. http://theigs.net Our Battlefield section is due to be up any time now. Have fun fraggin :)

1 more major consideration!
When you go into a game, and you see a person with a ping of 0, then you will start to lag im sure when people start coming in, unless that guy has a Northwind pentium on a t3! That means its not a dedicated server, just someone hosting on broadband.
Also, in your installation folder for the game, in the movies directory, you can go ahead and delete those and it will take you right to the menu.(if you didnt already know)

Have a good one, anything else i can help with let me know.
I dont know why but it logs me in and says im not! 8)

    I am not complaining though Hurricanes are not fun I have been through alot of them
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I evacuated for it just incase since I live in La Porte pretty much right on the water (in Houston area). Didn't see anything. It's a good thing for me anyways.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It's too bad that Blizzard messed up so terribly with Reforged.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Still has a 0.6 user metacritic score.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    (Out of 10)
  • Varine Varine:
    I haven't even tried it yet because everyone said it sucked. How do you get .6 out of ten?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am waiting for Dwarf Fortress to come out on Steam then I am on it.
  • Accname Accname:
    I play Dwarf Fortress from time to time.
  • Accname Accname:
    Its Okay.
  • Accname Accname:
    But the performance is sub-par. Does not seem to be well optimized.
  • Varine Varine:
    Is the Steam version coming with a graphical overlay or is it using the ASCII graphics still?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Steam version has the graphical overlay.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Steam Version has graphics, a new interface and will be integrated in the steam mod stuff
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I didn't think WC3 Reforged was that bad. It pretty much did what it stated (to me at least), but then again I can care less about reforged campaigns and all that. I just care about gameplay.
  • Varine Varine:
    I think people were hoping for a resurgence in mod support. I have little interest in the actual game tbh
  • Varine Varine:
    Plus I know they added that Dota precedent clause where Blizzard can steal your shit which isn't cool.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They sold Reforged to the community as primarily a huge graphical uplift with high res textures and redone cinematics.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They even showed one of the redone cinematics at Blizzcon and that very cinematic wasn't even in the released game.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    So I think folks were angry about that.
  • Varine Varine:
    Didn't the backwards compatability have issues too?
  • Accname Accname:
    I never had any hopes for that. Blizzard is not the same company it was 10 years ago.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It happens in corporations. They just absorb the companies they buy and it is not about the love of making awesome games it is how much money can we make with the least amount of cost.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Blizzard is watered down now hopefully they can pull it together
  • The Helper The Helper:
    they got a server engineer job opening :)
