I most like Hyperlobby, but you can also play at Ubi.com...

Hyperlobby tends to have more people, you can download the software from

http://hyperfighter.jinak.cz/

Look for a server with a decent ping - basicly the more green bars the better on the HL server screen.

You should be alright on 56k if you pick the right server - I have recently got broadband but flew OK on 56k for 12 months before that.

Happy flying - online is a much better experience, just don't expect to be getting many kills for a while. Stick with it though, actually shooting down a plane controlled by another person is much more rewarding than AI off line.

You can get it here:

www.hyperfighter.jinak.cz (http://www.hyperfighter.jinak.cz)

I forgot, but you may also play with The All Seeing Eye, but I´ve never seen too many servers for FB there...

As for the patch, sure it will support it.

Hullo mate,

I played for several months on 56k, and although a broadband connection is much more enjoyable, the 56k is quite doable and you have been depriving yourself. /i/smilies/16x16_robot-wink.gif Flying against AI is nothing like human opponents.

Ping is important, it is the amount of time it takes for your signal to get to the host and back. At Hyperlobby this is measured in milliseconds, so a ping of 100 is a tenth of a second. At over 400 it starts getting hard to fight well, because you see things warping around. You are likely to want to fly with others in Australia or not too far off. The ping is not simply related to your bandwidth, but also strongly dependent on geographical distance. It's not very likely you'll find many servers in Europe or the US that you will have a good ping with.

One thing that will really slow you down is if you use comms, but this is the kind of thing you sort out when you join a squadron. I highly recommend you think of joining a squadron if you find you enjoy flying online. /i/smilies/16x16_robot-happy.gif

Oh, and when you see "Cheating has been detected!" don't worry, it's a message related to high pings, not actual cheating.

Cheers,
Mike
