I think HL reckoned the patch was here today and was down in preperation for it. But recent news has changed that. Bet they`ll be down for Wednesday instead.

Thank God, they can go back where they came from and leave UBI. I was literally amazed last night how many "squadrons" that came over from Hyper were warp cheaters. It was staggering.

What do they think people are dumb and don't know that every time these same people get in a defensive positition and starts sliding all over the place EVERYTIME, yet seem to have no issues while on the offensive, we know he's a rank cheater.

I love all their excuses, too. Oh, it's the internet. Oh, I must have had the wrong setting on. Oh, I'm warping???.

Puhlease, give us a break. It's so blatantly obvious when someone is using warp intentionally. I mean these guys didn't even care how many times they had to warp to get you off their six. It was truly sad.

Why won't hosts use the proper max lag settings anymore? Why do we constantly have to have this problem? Don't hand me "it's the internet" crap. I've flown with dial-ups and european high pings that never set off my lag messages, yet, this one squad had four broadband flyers and out of the entire server, only these four could be seen constantly warping.

UBI HOSTS:

1. Use tight max lag settings when creating servers, it will keep the lag down and the riff-raff out.

2. In your i18n folder in the FB folder, there is a file called netmessages.properties. Open it with notepad and add a {0} in front of the three lag messages like this:

user_cheating1 {0} Cheating has been detected!
user_cheating2 {0} Cheating has been detected!
user_cheating3 {0} Cheating has been detected!

Adding this will tell you which pilot is setting off the message and causing the lag or having a bad connection day. Yes, there is a small percentage of warp that is internet, but when whole squads have the exact same warp, at the exact same time, the only thing you can do is protect your servers with the max lag settings and root them out with the messages.

Hmmmm ever heard of the term "the benefit of the doubt"
The internet was bad for me lastnight and I bet it was for alot. High pings and overall slowness.

To publicly state that many Squads cheat is ludicrous and they all fly at the Hyperlobby... That just sad.

Enjoy Ubi server. Its where you belong.

At the start of WW2 the German army lacked experienced anti-aircraft gunners. The average gunner was so bad that the USSR decided to help them out. They did it by forcing some of their pilots to fly I-153 flak magnets. These planes were slow but very sturdy. This allowed German anti-aircraft gunners to get a large amount of target practice on a relatively small number of planes. Thanks to the Soviets help, by the end of the war the German anti-aircraft gunners were amoung the best in the world.

i was flying at ubi and ive never seen so much lagg in my life. i never see that at hyperlobby. ever. ubi lobby doesnt revert everyone to the same connect speed as hyper does. i bet thats why hyper has less lagg. the ubi lobby is horrible pings horrible lagg horrible interface for pilots. anyone that refuses to ever fly hyperlobby has their head in the sand.

Vickers, I would totally agree. However, the lag messages on a 54 ping cable guy, consistently when being attacked or attempting to evade, is noticabley obvious. I only refer to those using such tactics. People have slower connections, but packet loss is different.

Those max lag settings are there for a good reason and they have to be used to be effective. Seeing the name of the pilot who sets off the message is also effective in helping someone to see that they might have a connection issue.

This game has only two real cheats that I know of, wireframe and speeding up the pc clock. Max lag settings eliminate one, while the other is just a factor for FR players. Which I am at times, but never seemed to meet anyone using it.

arf, for the cheat message configuration, you know you can change the text as well

user_cheating1 {0} lagging has been detected!
user_cheating2 {0} lagging has been detected!
user_cheating3 {0} lagging has been detected!

as you are the only one to read them, you can even be creative

user_cheating1 {0} lag ownz you!
user_cheating2 {0} please stop lagging when i shoot!
user_cheating3 {0} lucky lagger!

well, you can be very creative, but i don't want to be moderated http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

user_cheating1 {0} is using Kazaa!
user_cheating2 {0} Using Kazaa is baaaad!
user_cheating3 {0} is definitely a Kazaa user!

Changing the lag messages only shows on the machine where the edit is performed. If the offender hasn't added the {0} in his own machine, he'll still see the default message.

There are bad days on the internet, and the innocent issues that cause a defending pilot to warp can sometimes occur only when he's defending. Be very slow to jump to conclusions about who's cheating, coz one day it may be you suffering from these issues.

That's correct only you will see the name, but as host this will prove invaluable. Also, people who use it can monitor their own in-game connection performance and fix something that may be wrong when they see their name pop up.

Tully, this is far from crying "Wolf!" everytime I see a lag. You know it as well as allot of others know it, that not all lag is unintentional. And unfortunately, certain pilots lag amazingly often with cable modem connections when on the defense.

I just wish more hosts would use the settings and start to cut down on some of the BS lag and help people cure the real lag with their connections. That is all.
