To Tibian my laptop does UT in 1024x768 32bit at around 50fps average on Face
And its got last years Geforce Go in it ..i can only imagine what the new 32 meg later revisions do ...*Drool*
To the people that hate setting up ...I agree Laptops and Rackmounts are the way to go ...i had my main rack mount back up in 3 minutes. The other PC that was our dhcp and file server is also my home firewall for my RR connection so it had to go back up. Took a few mintues.. The part i dont link its the monitors. The way to go here is just take the pain and do 15' or 17' inchers / Get a cheapie at the PC show for 75$ or so and use it as a "beater" thats what I do ..works great and i dont worry about it as much tossing it around in the car.Also wiretie all your wires together on what you can and just wrap em up and go ...Another thing is when setting up your PC on your desk make sure you can get it in and out easy...seems alot of people have to do spelunking to get thier PCs back in their desks and thats NO FUN !
On the lag during the UT tourny. The UT servers have always been known for thier"issues" but i have a strong feeling that it was " file sharing enabled, while trying to play on a server" that killed it. Basically it sorta works like this.
--Switches dont care if you file share it doesnt hurt others that bad (unless alot of people are doing it across the switches then it uploads the connecting port) the problem lies in the fact that if you are file sharing AND playing on a server then your latency will be higher and if you have a buggy/badly written server like the UT one then your lag kills the server.... basically we are going to work filesharing differently in the future. ....
If you want to test this start a 100meg file download then get on our fav CS or UT server
The CS tourny ran great ! Low Pings for all w00t !
To SIN and M3 DARN good fight gentlemen ! Glad all the CS teams could have a great time sorry for it starting so late..next time it will be BEFORE UT
(that is if everyone doesnt start getting hooked on the Empire Earth Crack
