sometimes, the awaiting snapshot screen takes long. Does the speed that you get into a game have to do with your ping or your pc? Also, games like wolfenstain:enemy territoy, halo, and unreal 2003 do not have annoying snapshot things. I can get into a game faster than these games than with JA. why does jo and ja have snapshots and what are they?

Yes, I was wondering the same thing too. But as far as I know, the speed you connect dosen't affect your ping.

It might just be a JO/JA thing. Who knows.

I *think* it means that the game is getting the position of all the other players on the server.

the awating snapshot can take a long time especially if you are in windowed mode. otherwise, speed of loading isnt proportional to lag at all, and i think samuel dravis is pretty accurate with his description. :)
