Dude are you going to play on all 2400? Probably not right? %-6

This thread is like saying, I don't like Google and I hate Yahoo can anyone tell me what search engines are out there?

Lot's of good suggestions have been made but no game browser is going to bring back the Q3A community to what it once was.

It's a good thing Sly is thick skinned.. I thought that was going to leave a mark :@ :D


All kidding aside it could be that your getting a crappy ping to a number of servers because of a bad routing that's outside of your DSL providers domain. If thre are any that you used to have a low ping to you might want run a trace to see what the routing is like, and where the latency isues are.

I've had this issue in the past with my Adelphia cable connection. Outside of their network I would get routed from Buffalo to Atlanta to New York !dodge for a month or two, then all would be resolved and I'd get a straight shot to NYC.

Good luck!

I haven't found those programs to be a very reliable ping indicator when they do their mass update, pinging hundreds of servers. It wasn't uncommon for me to ping 50-100 to servers that ASE/Gamespy showed 200+ pings to.

it's your DSL routing that is the root of the high ping...the sad thing is, it can happen overnight.. it happened to me when i had DsL... solid 50pings to Texas servers, than all jumped to 90 :( Cable solves all... 50-60 ping to Texas servers and I am in Cali. Cali servers (the few of them out there are sub 50)

That used to happen to me when the BG server was in Mass. One day I'd be pinging 30-50 to the BG server, the next day (and for the following month) I would be pinging 150-200 because my connection got routed through California. Which is a bad thing when you live in Pennsylvania.

I use Favmon and if anyone wants a copy I will send it (3.0mb install file). Favmon is not a browser but sits in the sys tray and watches your favorite (Q3 only) servers. It alerts you if predetermined events occur. If someone joins the BG server it pops up and tells me who joined which server. It then will give me the server info if I choose (map, ping etc.). It can be turned off if it gets annoying.

I have tried to find this program with google but can't. Finally found the install file on my backup drive. The original D/L host was called knuck nuts or some such thing and it no longer exists.

I just want as MANY servers as I can ping in HOPES to get a couple under 100ms. Right now.. out of 1600.. I literally only ping five servers in the upper 90's and the rest all over 100+

SO.... is this the lack of servers? I am beginning to think it's my DSL service.

ASE ping times have always been really high compared to actual pings for many years.
The ping server used to be in Germany, I am unsure where they are now nor do I care because Yahoo! SUCKS !
Install Qtracker and STFU !fub hahaha just testing that thick Minnesotan skin SLY !

I believe favmon was coded by captain - an original BG regular (ex-coworker of ch@os) - but I could be wrong.
