Internet connection crap
Posted 28 April 2005 - 12:11 AM
Does anyone have any advice? Or links? I'm sure there are guides to optimize a HL connection for non-suckage, but I haven't found any useful advice. I think I'm mostly using default settings, but I remember knowing enough to change things last year (like the rate command and stuff). The extent of my console knowledge is just enough to get by. When I open up net_graph it doesn't say I have any "loss" or "choke," both of which are... uh... bad, I guess. Even if someone knows the default connection settings (I'm assuming there are defaults), I could try restoring those first to see if it would help.
I know one of the AoL people (I get Bob and Demandred confused; maybe both of them) have complained about me being hard to hit (especially as a skulk). Actually, I've only had people complain when I'm a skulk. No one complains if I'm a marine, fade, or anything else (I usually fade if I'm an alien, so I don't have a lot of time as other lifeforms).
Of course, in the game, I am trying not to get hit. That is, I'm not sure if people are complaining about a real problem or not. When I play on random servers, someone invariably insists I must be cheating (if I'm doing well; if not, no cheating!), and I don't cheat. So sometimes when people complain about stuff it's just BS. Some people have no problem hitting me, even with celerity (and leap!).
If it's important: I think I get like 500 KB/s downstream and 30 KB/s upstream. Last I checked, anyway.

30 ping is good but it shouldnt be a problem for somebody with a 75 ping to hit you. sometimes people with low ping still warp around the screen. this has always puzzled me. anybody with low ping that warps i suspect of cheating, but thats just me.
i used to use 25000, 101, 100 but found that as new updates to cs came out, i needed to lower my rates to get better registration. with your connection speed, i would think that you can use 10000, 60, 50 or something above default at least.
