Thank you for stating what we have previously discussed. :roll: Just suck it up and learn to play with it, as do many other of the best players out there. The matter on "lag" and ping times is all in the hands of the host and developers. Just a matter of time before someone forwards these ideas into...

You all seem very misunderstanding. Myspace was created for a free way to people to share information and chat with a profile with facts about themselves. It is no more than a social based website. The fact that numerous bands and "rappers" have emerged from myspace because they got their faces out ...

Well I dont have issues on those servers when I lived here in NY and when I lived in Quebec. Maybe the server just needs a restart when you are playing there. Who knows. But if you think that another American server could help, feel free to pursue it...but better yet, why not try to get the other tw...

Well like I have previously stated, you can advertise the myspace (bzflag one) in the "games" forum of myspace which is the second most popular sub-forum on the site.

Im going to have to agree with birdie and ts on this one. It would be useless to create an American server if most of the players are European. I dont mind my ping time (120 +- 2 or 3ms). Have you tried changing ISP's :wink: . (VERY drastic measure there :P)

Well I can make one. My girlfriend did mine while I was at practice one day and she showed me how to do it so I could do one, and not add anyone if I get a friend request.

After reading that, I now have an understanding as to why the greatest players in the GU league and duc league are so good....they have gotten their shots to a science against laggy opponents.

He is probably a youngster so chill out. If you registered that callsign, make sure the password you entered is correct for global login, and if that doesnt work, in the server messages that first appear when you join, check to make sure it doesnt say something like, "Server Login" or something weir...

The Release should be in a couple of months (from what was said from previous discussions) It will most likely include some new features, maybe not, it might only fix some bugs...All in All, nobody know exactly what it will contain, all ican say is it will be similar to previous version, but better...

I think bzflaginator's pic is a 1 VS 1 server.
I already stated it is Hix.

Well, of course there is that advantage for the players in Europe because they have the most central location and most near to the best servers. For me, on my home line with my wireless G, I get around 130ms +- 3ms and I live near the East Coast, but thats because Im sure I have a good ISP. And of c...

I wouldnt call it an advantage...but "player B" will have a slightly greater margin for error. The inaccuracies of +- are silly. If you play someone with 50 ms +- 10ms its going to be like playing yourself (player B) at 150ms +- 0ms even. Someone with 50ms and no jitter is very good for them because...

BzFlag on Myspace

I had an idea of spreading the word about BzFlag on Myspace. I didnt know if it would be ok for me to post topics in the forums there and maybe make a myspace for Bz. Let me hear some of the views and input before I make a decision. :idea:

Learner:
Do you think it may be part of the same problem I had with the connection thieves?

I would just consider getting a new router. If yours is outdated and infact a netgear, I would look at Belkin or Linksys. But thats just me.

Well the ISP is branches send to each modem and if there is enough new traffic at a givin point, the connection will slow down. I notice its worst in the evening when Im assuming people are home from work and school. I periodically get on in my house between classes at the college.
