    Modern games have 188.9 fps in HD and 150 fps in Ultra High Definition and if you play online they will require a faster connection than games of the past. Modern Games favor the fast connection, not the slow connection like Enemy Territory does. Example is Mechwarrior Enemy territory is generally capped by servers at 120 fps and the game was created when computers and high speed internet was actually slow. So Enemy Territory favors the slower connection and PC in the game during a battle between 2 players. Unfortunately this difference puts VERY fast PC owners at a large disadvantage with most other players when playing old games. I shot you 5 times but I heard no hit sounds. This is the reality of Enemy Territory, you did shoot that player 5 times but his ping/PC was either faster or slower than yours, so YOU MISSED. Its a server thing and the Admin does not control it, it is how the game was designed. I know your gun barrel was up the enemy players butt and it was not possible for you to miss him. But you did .... This is caused by connection and/or the speed of your PC. What you see may not be what the server see's. Simply, If the server does not see it -- it did not happen. To help explain this. Basically your computer showed the player standing in front of you at 12:53 and 23 seconds left in the game, but the player was not actually at that location for another 1 and a half seconds, so your first few bullets would miss the player automatically and then your aim was altered when the other player shot you. so you missed the last 2 shots you fired. my ping is very close to the botz ping (which is ZERO) but my PC is faster so shooting the botz is like shooting ducks in a barrel.

    Unfortunately some older single player games do not always work well with modern video cards. The games can freeze and lock up during battles with 5 or more enemys. It is the video card causing this, you must turn off many settings for the Hardware video card - Not in the game. NO anti aliasing on the video card, Turn the card settings off. The In the game setting of anti aliasing can be set on max if you wish. You must turn many settings off in the Video cards control settings for the games to be playable. Because of this, video card companies and game makers are redoing the graphix for some of the old games. Quake 2 RTX , Halo:MCC, Halflife2 are just 3 old games with improved graphix, but there are many more. Return to Castle Wolfenstein does not have improved graphix but runs great without turning things off on the video card, but this game is older than the 2 games listed below. Original DOOM works great also. These 2 games were made after Return to Castle Wolfenstein and DOOM, and they do NOT have improved graphix. They lock up unless the video card settings are set correctly. Wolfenstein: The New Order Wolfenstein: The Old Blood If you buy a game through STEAM and it wont run, or work properly. They will delete the game and give you back your money. Credit your steam account. I declined their offer and chose to keep the games and manually change my video cards individual settings to make the games somewhat playable. More than 1 setting needs to be changed.

    Good insightful description! This problem still exists even on modern pc's and modern games. It's just unavoidable these discrepancy's pop up on a server with clients all having different latencies and/or bitrates. It's quite remarkable what the programmers of these games do to compensate for these differences, doing predictions to have things come together and something can happen (more or less in a fair way), when all players involved have an other timing. Cause if you think of it, when these measures are not taken, online games will be totally unplayable. Those techniques are nowadays usually referred to as Netcode, and unless you have been living under a rock for the last few weeks, you might have noticed how simracing became great overnight now we petrolheads have no real races to watch any more. The effects of Netcode pop up in many a race because of the same reasons Cyberwolf explained and due to the dynamic and fast paced gameplay of these sim-games. Try Google for "iRacing netcode" for a lot of interesting info on this.

    All fake news, how can a person who aint a docter/virologist warn for something even the specialists are unknown to? So many stories: Bill Gates predicted this 3 months ago........ fake It started on a Chinese market according a movie on the internet.The movie is about a market in Indonesïe.........fake Tom Cotton reiterates his suggestion that the Coronavirus originated at a super-lab in Wuhan........fake Lijian Zhao said: 2/2 CDC was caught on the spot. When did patient zero begin in US? How many people are infected? What are the names of the hospitals? It might be US army who brought the epidemic to Wuhan. Be transparent! Make public your data! US owe us an explanation!........ fake And so many similar stories .......fake But 1 story is thrue, cauz all say the same: keep distance, stay at home as much as possible and avoid busy places.

    Every government is playing with figures. Triple it and still ok if true. Just wanted to say that playing down as some governments started with is prob not the most clever thing to do.

    If you trust the Chinese government to report deaths truthfully...... A little prideful for that, I'd say.

    here in pennsylvania, we currently have around 500 confirmed cases, which is pretty good considering how many cases the state next door has, *cough, new york. around 16,000! and new jersey at around 2,000! but sadly however, this disease is spreading like wildfire. many businesses in my area are shut down excluding essential businesses and businesses that have drive-thru windows. there is no hand sanitizer anywhere, toilet paper supplies are limited in stores, but there is still LOTS of handsoap and bodywash on the shelves, fucking idiot people. its funny that most people don't know that SOAP is waaaayyyy better than hand sanitizer. i'm stocked up on everything i need, staying home, and trying to stay sane through this pandemic, day-by-day.

    the same here bier. We can go out if necessary, like eating, among other things, we have to be at home as much as possible. There are people who do not care and do not obey the health rules. There are also paranoids. The economy is falling apart. Fake news abounds. I am listening to the radio all day to stay informed. All kinds of massive events were canceled to avoid further contagion.

    You mean you cannot leave your house? Over here in The Netherlands it is not the case (yet)... Only bars, restaurants, gyms and anything like that are closed, and people (try) to stay 1.5m away from each other. But some people don't give a shit about it, some are reasonably cautious, and some people turned into paranoid idiots... I kinda like how it upsets the normal way of life, but at the same time feel sorry for the casualties...
