Rage
« on: November 08, 2020, 09:33 »
Hi All, you have probably seen me on the server for freon recently - I started gaming many many years ago - for fps it was the original unreal - then through all the versions mainly ut2004.  I was <<RzR>>DarkRage & <<RzR>>Reality,  I was with RaZor for a few years before moving on to eXs then Fatz as ^o^.  So for those that remember me please leave a comment and see if I remember you.

Its good to see many names on the servers I play on that I recognise - even Piglet =)

My biggest issue now that Im old is my kids stealing my bandwidth and leaving me with packet loss - really buggers up my k/d ratio.
I think i have had one or two matches with perfect stable internet which enabled me to hitscan and score top 30 odd kills  but usually mid on the scores when im pl spiking.

anyway hello again - I left UT in 2007 and returned a few months ago during lockdown good to know i can still play =)

Welcome.

Wait until the kids are in bed to play...or by that time are you too knackered?

Hi and welcome :)

Get a router than allows you to set bandwidth limits, that way you can leave enough overhead in the connection perhaps

Hi matey, name sounds familiar RzR on the old titan servers maybe? Wish I still had all my old screenshots, but only have 6 I can find from the olden days.
Most routers allow for specific application priorities, I forget what the technical name for it is; if you find others are hogging the bandwidth in your household.

yep, put a router between the 'problem computers' and the i'net connection,. you can limit bandwidth

The search term you're looking for is "QOS" - you can get it on switches and routers. Just give your PC priority...

Welcome mate, long time no see!

There he is. I think it is alright that I blame you for being to busy to join the game recently (or playing incognito)  :D

Hello Rage. I share your story sort of, stopped playing somewhere in 07, found an old laptop with 2k4 installed a while back and got remembered that this game was fun. Also got kids messing with my time and bandwidth. =) Usually play for 15 mins after the last one have napped..
