some of my fragging friends installed this new version of kali 2.2a i think and we tried it and some of my friends really had a good ping around 40 to 100 and i get around a min. of 100 ping, all of my friends uses a 56k motorola modem and i use my 56k USR modem.btw we have the same sukzing isp,what do you think my modem is the culprit, iwant to change it but cant afford to get a new one now.Damn USR never updates their modem drivers.What is your experience with kali btw?we only played quake2 with kali and it seems all the player their are very fast do you think they are bots,does quake2 have bots?

hmm, I thought Kali was that IPX interface. or maybe I recalled wrong. So you can play Quake 2 on it huh? Then it must be TCP/IP...

40 to 100 ping with a 56k?? UNREAL! if even possible.

anyways, I don't use Kali, heh, but I did play Quake 2:

yes, Quake 2 has bots. But remember, just because someone's good doesn't mean they're cheating. You gotta check carefully. I for one has been kicked automatically on one server all the time because I use some joystick configs, which practically no one else uses. They just think I'm a bot :D

And one last note, Iran, you should post this in the Off Topic - Software section, as this is an emulation board. I'd agree if some admin moves this there.

If you have not tried kali yet you can get the shareware version here http://www.kali.net/non_js/welcome.html but since its shareware it will disconnect every 15 minutes but you can always reconect this is the only limitation as you will be automaticaly disconnected while playing.

40 to 100 ping with a 56k?? UNREAL! if even possible.

Kali is fast and this is the first time i have used kaili at all and frankly we did not expect to get a good ping (40-100) after selecting your desired game all the servers will be displayed at the upper right and you must specifically select the best server to get the lowest ping (and the ping will be displayed at the lower right) and these is what we do, but these is not always possible cause sometimes the best servers have no players so we have to wait for a while for other players to join but a 40 to 100 ping is not impossible with 56k.

And lastly my error if i posted it here in the general forum, to the mods, can you plz. move my tread to the off topic.Thanks.

i want to say that even w/ adsl i hardly reach the 100ms
so....
and when I had a 56k i was about 250 or 300 ms
so do not worry about it.
it depends also of the server speed.

The last time I used Kali was a couple years ago...and they had JUST released a version that had SOME TCP/IP capability...still couldn't run Half-Life for some reason back then. Probably fixed by now. I don't use it anymore because all the games currently out have their own server-browsing capability and I don't need Kali's help to find them...AND I lost my key codes after a format and re-installation :(. Kali WAS awesome when I had it and could run games that weren't ever meant to be run on the internet...but not anymore (at least to me).

Well for the IPX games I used to use zone.com's ZoneLAN IPX. it was slower, but it was free (it still is). Descent (1, 2), Duke Nukem 3D, Warcraft 2... :cool:

I registered Kali long before they made a version for Windows, and have been using it ever since. Best software investment I've ever made. I don't think many people use it to play games anymore, though. Most people tend to just use it for a server browser, as it kicks the shiznit out of Gamespy.

Of course, if there IS some old IPX game you want to play, it's the way to go. A little Blood or some FIFA...

I'd tried that, but got annoyed at the fact (at that time, at least...it's probably changed) that you couldn't use new maps. You had to stick with the original or hope that your oponents downloaded the same maps earlier. Back then, tho, I was able to just go back to Kali with its download manager and play :). I was even able to get 120k worth of Warcraft 2 maps in under 1 second with my 28.8 modem! :) Too bad I can't handle compressed files like that :(
