We are in the process of tweaking some maps for insertion into the rotation by this weekend, but some of the older ones are still there.

Drop by if'n ya feel so inclined.

please turn off 4.01 clouds http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

also the hurricane beaufighter b25 vs g2 bf110 190a4 map is a total slaughter maybe the 1941 spit5vc 2 or 4 might be nice on that one.

Im glad to see it back and i missed the server alot. I cant bother with wc anymore becuase i keep getting kicked for ping and dont even reach the 3 death limit ever. Its rather fustrating wc runs the smoothest for me becuase of no 4.01 clouds but the ping kick thing is too fustrating to enjoy flying there anymore for me.

Zekes vs wildcats, spits vs 109s, virtual pilots and greatergreen now all use the 4.01 simpsons clouds which kill fps so drastically cutting fps in half on my system.

Im on a mid system p4 2.53 ati 9600xt 256m, 1 gig of ddr @333mhz fsb is 533 only. I currently cant afford to upgrade but have been looking at amd 3800s, thats why i think more then half the people left 4.01 on HL. The most you see since 4.01 is 400 people on weekends. 200-300 on daytime.

3.04 use to have 600-1200 on weekdays and many weekends jiri even had to increase the limit becuase 900 was max players on HL.

when gg was down the only df servers full are usually wc. then the wonderwoman look on 6 with externals servers afj dedicated, uk dedicated and 334th dedicated.

Its great to see GG back and full.

I've been getting my behind kicked in there for two days already. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif
I think greatergreen is one of best server out there, and it's been like that since I remember. Since 2002 on Ubi. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

I miss my Internet connection. And my flight controller. I spent many happy hours on Greatergreen.

But now I'm home, where the yoke can't fit on the desk, and where the internet is restricted to an elderly wheezing PC which has no hope of running PF successfully...

Yup, that's the big grin I had on my face after riddling your 109 Ivan...until Piglet came and gave me a 30mm shower cap.

Any chance of you posting the IP address? I cannot use Hyperlobby without catastrophic crashes on my system.

Thanks ~S~

Yes fun server the 13th has been there a lot lately. Pretty good maps but some of the planesets need revision. I would agree with turning off the new clouds too. I have a good system but there are a couple of guys in the squad who are not so fortunate. Keep up the good work.

Go to the link/s in my sig for more server information. We also have a public TS server for the pilots flying there. The IP for the public server is hostess.darktech.org and the pw = servus

See you there.

Ohh good I've missed GG.
Now I'm back with more powerful machine (should get it any day now) http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif and longing for a few sessions like in the old days.
Seemingly I've been out of action more than 8 months http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

How is your policy about low-end and mid-range machines on GG nowadays?
I should be ok but many I know still are low-end and mid-range and only a few are high end.

U dont use the new clouds , do U?

Well anyway, hope to see some GG regulars soon.

I just tried it, had some stutters but then again IwoJima always was laggy for me. Had an awesome dogfight with me in La5 and Tchaykaram in a P-38 against several 109s. We both got shot down, but it was fun http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I'll also request for no 4.01 clouds, for the sake of cr@p system users (like me) http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

You bugger, you shot my ailerons first (FW-190 A6) and then took your time to deliver a slow and painful death. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif

Well, I shot four the next sortie, none made it out of the plane http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

It seems like when people come in more than 15 or so, ping doubles! (150 -> 300) http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif
It wasn't noticed before server down but it clearly is now after watching GG for a week.
I think it's due to downgraded server spec, not ISP problem.
Don't you have any plan to cure this?
I asked my squadmates and it's not just my problem.

thank god now maybe I can play online again.....Couldn't take the other servers out there in the US (plane set maps etc) and I only play on servers which ping lower than 100..

Now I have to come shoot you A... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

IMHO, Greatergreen is the only server that knows how to keep it interesting and always fun.
