Having installed 1.22 because I like to fly online I have noticed that my already average ping rate seems to constantly be higher than it was.As a result I get kicked from servers quite reguarly,most annoying!
Also the message "check speed 10sec 20%" comes up,what does this mean and what happens when it changes to 5secs 11% or similar?
All this didnt happen before and it makes the experiance of online flying somewhat broken and unsatisfying to say the least.
Does reducing picture quality from excellant to a lower setting make any differance? I have a 56k modem and am reluctant to get broadband as the cost is prohibative at the moment as I have many other commitments!

christopher65 The new patch has caused some slowdown and problems with dialup modems.. we are seeing this as host in vef.. And I don't know a fix for it at this time.. But you are not the only ones with this issue.. even flyers with slow pings with Cable are having this issue also..

There has been a cheat put out and it has caused host to set there settings tight to keep them out of the games.. but when that is done it kicks the dialups out that are slow.. and if you are going thru AOL it is worse because of how there system works.. .
