I'm dying for some Multiplayer here but there just don't seem to be any Ozzies playing on Australian servers.

I'm on a 56k connection and since moving to Sydney I have only played MP two times and there were only about 4 other people playing. It's depressing http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif

There are only 2 servers that I have a good enough ping to connect to and both are in Oz and both are empty 99.9% of the time. So where do all the 56k players in Australia go?

Below is what I see almost everytime I log on to All Seeing Eye, and this screen shot is from 8:30 on a Saturday night! Pretty packed eh? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

I feel your pain, bro - I have a 56k modem too and thus have not even bothered to check online out. Unfortunately I assume all servers need PF 3.04 (and I am in my last uni year and cannot as yet afford PF for a while yet.... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

As soon as I do, I'll be in touch.

Yes, I'm an Aussie, despite the name :P
(My girlfriend is Dutch, which according to my mates makes me obsessed with all things Dutch which spawned me a new nickname)

I played IL-2, Forgotten Battles + AEP and Pacific Fighters online with 56k from Sydney. I upgraded to a 1.5mbit line recently though.

There are still a few guys on 56k in Hyperlobby though. Its probably a better place to find a game - there are *heaps* of Aussies on there. There is a server on Hyperlobby for FB+AEP v204 as well, but there arent many people on it whenever I look.

hehe Coldan, largest I'll let you have...best? plenty would argue that point.

There are plenty of active IL2 players in Australia, most have a prescence at the above site. Most will fly on the US servers as the netcode for this game is very forgiving, its not as demanding as a twitch game such as CS, Bf1942 or Chessmaster 2000.

Xnomad, check out the coop action in HL too. There're often a few Aussie hosted coops going there in the evenings.

Like Hobnail said, look us up at OZFB forums (http://www.ozfb.com/)it's a anzac's website more or less, open to all but aimed mostly at ozzies and kiwi's.

It will give you a chance to get to know us, also you may want to join a squad so you can get in our online wars.
