Unmanageral speed increase


Recommended Posts

Hello fellow NOLF gamers. I need your help and i need it fast.

 

Like most of you, i am a keen gamer. NOLF 2 just happens to be one of few games i enjoy the most. It is a friendly atmosphere and fun when playing online multiplayer. I would go on about how good it is but i am here posting under the tech section. This is why i need your help.

 

Today, i was the proud owner of a new video card, ( the NVIDIA GeForce 6800 GS ). Also, i upgraded my PC internet connection to 8meg broadband. Now here is the thing. Once everything was set up, i went online. Webpages and emails sailed through With my 8meg broadband. I then wanted to test my new video card. So i turned to my favorite, NOLF 2. At first when i first started playing the main game. Then i went multiplayer deathmatch. This is when, things started to go wrong. While i playing, the game looked just the same, my opponants looked the same but nobody was shooting me and always missing. Now like other players, i use the left and right to try and evade as much fire as possible but i was getting hit less than usual.

 

The other reason for this message is that according to other players i seem to be moving quicker. How this is i don't know because like i said everything still looks the same at my end. But my opponants state that i move quicker than other players. I don't know how this is. I myself know nothing about computers. I am one these people who buys the thing, turns it on and plays, if by chance there are problems with the computer then i phone someone to fix it.

 

Like now. Can someone help me because i enjoy this game. However i don't want other people to be upset because i move quicker around the maps. If i need to adjust my settings then please tell me how because i have no clue.

I think it is something to do with my updated pc but i would really like to know more.

 

Thanks once again

Out of curiosity what was your ping while playing?

 

As far as actual speed that is determined by the server. It is through ping where you get the advantage or not as that is how fast your PC can communicate to the server to exchange info (terrain, player locations, weapons things like that)

Hi Eliteone.

 

As far as i can see, my ping is 250+. I don't really know what pings are. i have though been playing other games since my last post but according to other players i am about the same as usual.

 

I hope this does not cause too many problems.

 

Do you happen to know if it has anything to do with my connection settings or should i leave them alone?

 

Thanks E1

 

Hope you can help me soon.

Press Tab in DM or DD next time and note the number associated with your name.

Hi e1 just read it.

 

Strange thing but it seems to be true. I often meet Turbo in dm and in the last time he was almost always winning it and its really hard to hit him but I thought (and I still think) its because of his player-skill.

I remember playing with him earlier and then he usually was one of those players, who you can find in the middle of the ranking (like me :lol: ) and it was easier to kill him than it is now.

His ping is even higher than mine (mine is between 160 and 170 and turbos is usually ten more than mine 177-180). I always look at the ping of the others and really wonder why he is so hard to hit or even to kill for me.

 

Furthermore he plays with the same character I do, so my friend (I agreed with him not to shoot at each other ) sometimes kills me cause he thinks I'm turbo, but I think that doesn't fit anymore in this topic :D

(Sorry but my english isn't very good so I hope you still understand me :lol: )

 

I want to start a poll in the senseless spam section but the "new poll" button isn't there. Can you help me with this?
