Hey there, I got a Omf BG for Christmas and was very happy about it and first it worked all fine :thumbsup:

But then I tried to play it online and it autoupdated itself, then - SURPRISE - :

1. Nearly everytime I play it online I get a pingage above 200 and I'm at aDSL, could someone explain this to me ?

2. When I'm playing the world open cup and there are more than 4 Hars are in the arena, it lags heavy and sometimes it even crashes !

Here my system specifications (which meet the minimum):

1.8 Ghz Pentium 4
786 MB-SDRAM
Geforce 3 Ti 200

does anyone have an idea why this game messes up after the update ?

Plz help me, i wanna play this game without any problems Sad

Creative methods around the swear filter are looked down upon. Please respect the system.
Your friendly, neighborhood moderator,

hum.... so it played fine before updating? That's strange.

As for the ping, where are you located? Most of the servers are in the US so far.

Here's a few suggestions:
- when online, close all other apps that have access to the internet i.e. downloads etc.
- with the large number of HARs in the arena: I will suggest the Ctrl+2, Ctrl+3 tricks, but I'm not sure if these work in Retail.
Confirmation on this one pls?

Lastly, no creative cursing, pls.

Mkay, First when it crashes post the bug report in this thread. Second, what settings are you running it at? Thirdly, if you have norton turn it off while playing because both are memory hogs and its better if they don't fight because omf loses. Lastly, what os are you running on? Windows Me has known issues with omf and 98 is notorious for memory leaks.

how'bout this: 200 ping isn't really that bad. Yes, it's worse than the 150 that i find standard, but the game is really quite playable up to 450 ping in my experience.

And with lots of players, too.
