  • gchq.quake1.net ping survey

    Idea behind this: many of us have played European players on servers lately (Polarite & co.), but they've been USA servers like quake.shmack.net:26002.

    GCHQ runs the standard ID maps (DM3, DM6, ..) plus has some custom maps available. To get those custom maps ---> European NetQuake Maps 5.5 MB

    For anyone who wants to participate in this survey:

    1. Connect to gchq.quake1.net (United Kingdom CRMOD server)
    2. Post your ping in this thread

    My ping at gchq.quake1.net = 130

              LOL! You don't hear those 2 words in combination very often.

              10 to 1, I'm gonna guess you connected to GCHQ with a single-player type of setup using a single player type of engine :d :d :d

              NetQuake DM road rules:

              1. Use ProQuake first. It's the only client that works great for DM without a ton of tweaking. Get ProQuake

              2. JoeQuake and QRack *can* be setup ideally for multiplayer. In my experience, it takes a fair amount of effort. The Brazilians are big on a special version of JoeQuake (X 0.30 or something) for multiplayer.

              Hydro uses JoeQuake Pro (QRack before it was renamed) and absolutely is devastating with 100 ping. He shafts and aims like a laser beam and otherwise busts up the joint when he plays.

              I can do JoeQuake multiplayer, I turn off about half of the QMB particles and turn interpolation off.

              3. DarkPlaces ... errr, well ... I personally haven't found an ideal setup that gets a solid and consistent frame rate when rockets are exploding all over the place. The time you LEAST want any lag or frame slowdown is when rockets are coming at you.

              Until someone posts some verifiable ideal settings for DM for that client, I don't see how anyone isn't at a big disadvantage using it for DM, personally.

              Maybe it can be, I haven't personally found the secret formula.

                  I admittedly *don't* have the best graphics card. That could very well be part of my problem. I have an ancient GeForce 2.

                  You were kicking some ass, even with that West Coast ping ... were you using DarkPlaces?

                        EEeeek! Don't let Monster on. I used to go to GCHQ to escape him burying me at fear. (jk) :d

                        Kind regards

                        BTW My Ping was 40 last night from England. ...and yes I get my arse kicked on GCHQ (usually by Jackhammer, Polarite, Loaded1MbImage and Peg) almost as much as on Fear, Shmack, etc.
