high ping on Counter Strike
« on: April 04, 2006, 08:28:57 PM »
I have a Qwest DSL connection and when i play counterstrike:Source my ping is around 30-60, however, when my friend who lives just a few streets away makes a game my ping goes up to like 120. Is there anyway to get it down by messing with the config.cfg  or by messing with my network places or anything? thanks

High ping tends to be down to your DSL provider and to the best of my knowledge there is not much you can do about it.

You say is about 30-60, is that for a big server?

It all depends on what time you are online how many people are online with your ISP, How many people are int he server your playing in, Where the server is in the world ,What you have running in the back ground.

There's nothing much you can do.

    From what i can gather your saying that your friend makes a server on his computer. If this is correct then your ping is BOUND to go up really high, un less they are have super computer. For a good low ping game you need a server that is in you country and isnt a "Dedicated" Server which runs on someones computer.
    Hope this helps

    shut down any unnessicary programs in the backround. It frees up the cpu, page memory, etc.
    This might help you, it helped me.

    Go to options - Keyboard - advanced - enable developers console

    Enter a server

    type "CL_Cmdrate 5" and press enter

    then

    type "Restrictconsolecommands 1"
                   ^^^^ - just type restrict and it should pop up in a box you can click

    Cmdrate drops your ping like a mofo to like 7 and restrict... well it restricts any commands a server might give you so you cant be kicked.
