View Full Version : Crappy Half-Life

05-15-00, 09:14 AM
Why is it that I am moving slower than players with 56k modems. I am using a Surfboard 3100 cable modem and connecting through @home(Punks). I get on here and hear of 50-60 pings in half-life being common. If I ever get 150, I am happy. I usually play at night at about 500-600. Why the hell am I paying 40 bucks a month to be slower than aol people? This sucks. I don't really know much about modems and tweaks so if someone can make a plan to use to optimize the modem's performance I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you. If there is nothing i can do to help at my end. How can I make the people at @home fix it? They probably have way too many people in my node. Oh yeah d/l about 40 is normal. not 300 like others.......Thanks

See, I am pretty stupid when it comes to computers. I don't know much about any of that. I am using windows 98, but I really don't know what the spec is....I am not sure of my video card. I have a 3dfx voodoo 3 with tv out. Anything else you need, could you please tell me how to find it? Thanks.

well first off... go press ~ while yer playing
then type in /rate 12000 and then
/pushlatency 500
also.. if u just upgraded from yer modem to cable there might have some tweaks or something taht stayed in the registry or something...if those 2 commands doesnt work.. try reformattin yer harddrive and install everything.. worked for me.. heh
