Is it worth even trying with a dialup modem on hyperlobby?

Thanks,

Yup!

We have a squaddie that flies on 56k all the time for our coops, but just be aware that if your ping gets too rediculous that many servers may auto-kick you as lag protection.

Give it a shot and see how it works for ya!

A lot of people with dial up are on HL every day, it's quite possibile. Actually HL connections defaults to 14.4 kb/s.

YES it is.

as long as you have a ping under 400 you "should" be OK. while the more players are in a room, the more anomalies you will start to see. (warping,jumping,and the all of a sudden "hes on my 6 when just a second ago he was in my gunsight")

but, usually i only get that if its a medium furball with 8 or more people in close proximity to each other. playing humans on laaaagy connection is way better than playing A.I. without lag...anytime

I a 56ker well my connect is most of the time around 26400 bps because of my phone lines . you can play with not alot of problems aslong as its less then 12 ppl in a good server and you dont have any comm or messenger programs runing in the background. also keep your machine clean of spyware.good luck and good hunting.

I flew both IL2 and FB online for nearly 2 years on dialup, still do sometimes on weekends. Worked great.
