It was laggy earlier, but I think it smoothed up later on.  I had no issues myself.  Once Solton gets his server up, we'll have to sweet talk him into throwing on a BCCHardware server over there.

Well I tried joining at 9 and my ping was sitting at way over 500 so I don't know what was going on.

My ping was terrible at 9pm also.  Although I tried it again at about 9:45 and things were much better.  I have a little bit more reliable connection so I'm going to try and set one up tonight.  I'll post the server details when it's up.

The game sucks. I downloaded the demo and it crashed. Some d3dx9_29.dll error. I have to go through a "genuine Microsoft Windows" test before I can download some DirectX update. Every Time I see a "Genuine Windows Validation" I feel like an innocent man getting a cavity search at an air port. It's got to be a crappy game if it won't run on Win XP64. What happened to the old days when the game would check to see what hardware you had then configured itself for it (Commander Keen Rocked!)

If you need the August DX Patch that fixes the issue, it can be downloaded from my FTP.  I also hate the Windows Validation stuff.

FTP Link: ftp://72.2.20.144:8182/directx_aug2006_redist2.exe
FTP Link: ftp://72.2.20.144:8182/directx_oct2006_redist.exe

[edit]12:51 Hrs I'm grabbing the just released October 2006 Patched Redistributable file as I type and will post that up shortly. [/edit]

[edit] 12:57 Hrs I've posted up a link to the October release above and left the August one there as well in case you want an older version.  I'll pull the August patch tomorrow. [/edit]

ya i had the same prob.... downloaded the dx stuff from feb 6 and this solved it easy, and someone somewhere will always need to know what ppl are doing.....guns are not useful for this.... goto jail for doing something but put something in for ppl to find out what your doing invasion of privacy??? maybe not you get the point.... anyway the game was laggy for a bit then it ok later could be a game that i purchase.. along with ut2007

We are hosting on a new IP instead of the old one.  This new IP should have better bandwidth overall.  We'll test it out tonight.  The new IP is . . . 69.146.59.67  The server name is still BCCHardware

Be there tonight if you can!   :D
