  1. hi. i have dialup. im stuck with dialup for a while. When i use any of the ports to play. i get lag and it really sucks cause i am usually really good but the lag makes me suck cause i cant move anywhere. what i was wondering was. If i connect directly to someone else with dialup by modem. would it be just as speedy as a lan connection or Dsl to Dsl. if so. is there anyone who would be willing to play me.

    What happened?

    Doom Legacy has good bots. however i have yet to figure out how to change the difficulty settings. but zdoom also has bots. there arent as good cause they tend to kill themselves more often but with zdoom, you are able to edit a .cfg file to change the difficulty and skill of the bots.
  3. yes. please. cause this took away the shot delay a bit. and it connects to the games faster but there is still a bit of a delay that makes playing a drag. i wanna try to speed it up as much as possible.
  4. Dial Up Network. took me awhile to figure that out. if you got win 98, just click on My computer icon. then Dial up networking icon, and then right click on your connection and select properties. I havent noticed any change in speed but my internet is always slow at this time of night. itll be faster later on tonite.
  5. well. i have a pentium 2 processor, windows 98 SE, 128MB of ram. and 3 gigs of hardrive space. my my modem is an Acer 33.6 some things that i do already is to choose a server that has 4 or less players and to choose one that is close to home. unites states and canada ones work the best. also i only play late at night here. like after 9pm cuase then my isp isnt so loaded with people. with all that i can usually get a decent game. except for the delayed shot. maybe there might be something to reduce it a bit. thankyou for any help in advance.
  6. 25$ a month is what we will get. the thing is. its my mom paying for the internet. but i would be me paying for a 56k modem if i were to go and get one. i dont have that kind of money. i dont have any actually. but really. this thread is about lag reduction. not flame the guy who cant afford a 56k modem. thank you very much. Edit::.. and even if i did have money for one. i live in the country, on a farm. i dont go into the city that much. so i dont have the oppurtunity to by one either.
  7. see for me it is a matter of not having the money for a 56k modem. and also i live in rural manitoba(thats in canada) so im out of range of dsl. however it should be coming out to my area soon. when it does ill be getting it. so for now i gotta play with sucky ping well. i didnt get my computer brand new. i got it second hand. and it didnt even come with a modem. i had to get one from my school's electronic's lab.
  8. kay. i have a 28.8k modem. and i can play good with very little lag. depending on how many people are playing or whether or not im downloading at the same time(then everything is fubared) but im usually good. the only thing i hate is the half second delay between when i fire and when the shot actually shows up. Is there any way to help with that. cause its causing me to suck. And just a handy tip that i should pass along. ive found that my ping is lower on servers that are closer to where i live then those farther away. unfortunately, there are none in canada. so the states is closest for me. while Germany is very ping high.

    converting music types.

    hi. whats up. kay. i finally figured out how to add music and textures to my wad file using wintex. the thing is though. it needs the music to be in .mus format. i only have .wav and .mp3 format music. i was wondering if there was a program out there that converts music from one format to another. specifically from .ra or .mp3 format to .mus format. thanks in advance

    converting music types.

    okay. ive got my music now. just found a webpage with downloadable midi files of the music i wanted and then converted it. now. i wanna insert my own sounds. I know how. already got some to work. but with some i get the error that its not 8 bit wave file. so. is there anything out there that can convert sounds to 8 bit waves

    Is Dialup to dialup just as fast as DSL to DSL ?

    oops. stupid me. I meant to type DSL. man. people must have been thinking me wierd. as for what port i use. i use zdaemon, doom legacy, skulltag, zdoom. which ever suits my fancy at any particular moment.

    Is Dialup to dialup just as fast as DSL to DSL ?

    Yah. I'm getting dialup in the future. Like, a month or a bit more in the future. So when that happens. I shouldn't have a problem. But, I guess until then, I'm stuck deathmatching against my brother over our LAN connection. Sorry about the grammar in the first post. I was in a bit of a hurry to get the post posted because I had needed to go. I'll try to be more grammatically correct in further posts. Thankyou for replying.

    When you first met the Cyber Demon...

    i first saw it in Doom2. about 3 years ago. I wasnt really scared, seeing as i was 14. but i was worried cause i didnt want to die. I used the run and shoot tactic. it took me down to like 5% health before my rocket blast took it out. It is a massive beast i tell you. For fun i made a map that was just a large room filled with them. and i put on god mode and the weapon cheat. and just ran around killing them.

    How many Frags?

    I usually play against my brother with a lan connection. He has a laptop. playing on one of my custom wads or one of his, we usually get up into the 200's after playing for an hour. online i usually get about 10. after half an hour. becuase i only have a 33.6K modem. really laggy.

    getting bots to do something in Skull tag

    oh. okay. thankyou. thats a bummer. but i guess itll be worth it cause the AI will be better. Yay!. ill stay tuned.
  16. hi. i been checking out skulltag recently. and i discovered the capture the flag thing. now that is fun. but i cant be online all the time. (dial up) so i tried playing against bots. but when i add a bot. it just sits there and does nothing. nothing at all. Is there some file i gotta edit or something to make the bots do something.??

    My Wads

    Hi. the following two links are to two deathmatch wads i have made. The first, danwad.wad I made about a month ago. when i first started getting good with textures and stuff. It was mainly a deathmatch level to play against my brother with. but it also works good over the net. the second wad. arena2.wad, I completed recently. i put alot of work into aligning the textures. and i put alot of work into the architecture in the middle of the map. There are no new textures or sounds in these wads. mainly cause i have not yet perfected those skills. so hopefully you will enjoy. post your comments or suggestions here. be harsh, brutal as you want. Links to wads: http://home.ripway.com/2004-2/75685/arena2.zip http://home.ripway.com/2004-2/75685/danwad.zip some screenshots. arena2.wad- http://home.ripway.com/2004-2/75685/DOOM003.pcx danwad.wad- http://home.ripway.com/2004-2/75685/DOOM012.pcx (made this one while playing against my brother using doom legacy. lots of blood splatter) :)

    converting music types.

    kay. how do you work this program
  20. bookworm87

    converting music types.

    there is no midi to mus converter in the utilities section. i searched. and also as for inserting .lmp files in. im using wintex4.3. your explanation made no sense cause there is no data insert thing.
  21. okay. hi. i use windeu to edit my levels and im quite proficient at it. however ive become bored with the original sounds and textures. so i downloaded wintex 4.3. those are the only level editors i can use cause i have a limited system. now to my question. is there any tutorials on the web telling you how to do stuff. like take a texture you made and use it in windeu. and adding sounds. im really confused. i tried the help files but they didnt help. also if you have tips yourselves. post them here.

    Doom Legacy Help

    okay. hi. i love doom legacy. its cool. but i can only seem to play it with the original doom2.wad iwad. i wanna be able to use my custom level with it. i put it in the addon files thing. and when i launch it comes up with the console and says that its connecting to something. and it stays there and does nothing. so i press escape key. and it loads into the original doom. does anyone know what my problem is. and how to fix it. basically i wanna be able to play custom wads with it. just single player. not over the net
