Yo! Sorry, was busy and forgot a bit about this thread. So, 1v1 nastyrail is the worst for me, others are more or less ok. But I suspect it has something to do with joining when there are only bots playing (it kicks me sometimes when I'm the first to join nastyrail FFA). If I join a 1v1 game with more players (so I have to wait) it doesn't seem to kick me as often. Kinda doubt it would be a cfg issue. I have a script but it's mostly about graphics, models and nicks, so no fancy stuff there to mess it all up.
Don't sweat it man.. After a few tries I can join NP. If it wasn't an easy fix don't waste time on it!
What bothers me now is, what the hell is going on with server versions(protocols)? The only one left on 1.30 is nasty FFA. I can't join (specify) 1v1 because it is some other version, and all spazy's servers are gone. What?

Due to the amount of cheaters on our servers I am starting to use protocol 68 with punkbuster. Its not going to be popular as the 1.30 but it will cut back on those trying to ruin the game and invade our servers with dirty cheats.
Well.. All good and dandy, but how do I enable punkbuster and which version is this now? 1.32?
edit: Oh my.. wtf is going on. So, I went into 1.30 and went to play in nasty FFA, had 60 ping. Then I switched to 1.32 and went in 1v1 (had a really bad ping), and then joined nasty FFA.. Again ridiculous ping. So for a test went back to 1.30 and joined FFA -> wrong protocol. Did you just change it in the last 5min? Or is something weird happening?

your ping should be roughly the same. I will be keeping the ctf server running 1.30 since we have a good list of cheaters ip addresses and stupid user names like Heyitsme duh time these tossers got a life immature morons.
Hmm, still, what I find weird is that half an hour ago I played on FFA with 1.30 version!! How is that possible? Did you just now change it or something?
And ping really isn't the same, it's almost two times as big for some reason.
Ps: A good list? There were more than darkness and that kamikaze guy? Can you disclose the names? I'm really curious by who's script I got my ass kicked.
To avoid double posts. So, I tested ffa and 1v1. Ping seemed to drop a little so that's ok. BUT! I have no idea whether that's due to punkbuster, new version or whatever, but there seems to be a noticable delay when you shoot. Something akin to a big ping. This used to happen back in the day, when you had to shoot slightly behind the movement direction of your target to get them. Or when they fly really fast. Only now that happens all the time.
If it IS related to new version and since we are (or I am for that matter) on the topic of cheaters and versions, is it really worth it changing the version? There are a few issues, like this weird delay and among other things no one will find these servers in the server browser, ever. So you have to join by IP. And whenever master server fell down only me and santa used to play by "specify". Servers will be mostly empty, because no one will bother with IP's. IMO it's not worth it. I play a lot (different nicknames...) and only kamikaze and darkness stood out (and darkness only because he used to be pretty bad), oh and one **** or (o!o) guy or something, but he was probably just good. My point being that there weren't many who stood out and they seem to be caught now. I'd rather have to report weird behaviour and have players to play against, than a safe, laggy, empty server.
