View Full Version : Modem to modem connection

05-17-2002, 05:09 PM
Since my friend and I have a 56K modem, we want to connect modem to modem. This is possible, isn't it? I have Windows 2000 and he has Windows XP. Both of us have tried connecting to each other using an incoming connection. When we go to play locally, the client side has way too much lag, even when the ping (shown my pressing 'TAB') is low. We tried changing lowering the rate and com_maxfps but it only helped a little, if any. We had no problem playing Dungeon Siege. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I would suggest that nature of Dungeon Seige's game-play makes it more conducive to a low bandwidth connection.
