I have been looking into HL for a few months now and was wondering what people thought about it. I have been flying ubi for about 2 months and it's ok, but I want to see what else is out there.

I have a few questions: It looks like all I need to download is the HL client. Is there anything else that I need to download? Also, because of where I live I can only have a dial-up connection. It's not a bad connection, but dial-up is dial-up http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif Anyway, how will this affect my online play? One more thing. Do I have to be in a squadron to fly there? I have a group of friends that I fly with, but we are not really organized like many of you.

If anyone can give some help with this I would sure appreciate it. ~S~

At any given time of the day ot night you will find at least threee times the amount of people on HyperLobby then on ubi.

There are a lot of people that still use a dialup connection.It still depends on what server you join.

You do not need to be in a squadron to play at Hl.But there are a lot of team rooms and online wars that you do have to be registered to play.

The HyperLobby client is all you need to have.But having some form of voice comm program is a nice thing to have.Some are more 56k friendly than others.

Any 3rd party voice comms will work with HL.To me RW was the worst sounding of the early voice comms(RW,Battle Comm,and the Microsoft Game Voice) but probably the most 56k friendly.

It was just the one everybody I knew was using so I got it. I've heard a lot of people use teamspeak. Is it better?

Sorry to ask so many questions. Just trying to figure this stuff out http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Team Speak works nicely; However, Ventrilo also works well. You might want to try them both out.

Dunno about Ubi but you can be banned in HL so watch it.

I use Teamspeak exclusively. If you're on 56k, you'll need to have a room that is set to the 5.1 codec.

When you join a TS server, you join a room. That room's voice comms has a codec. 5.1 gives a grainy kind of sound, whereas anything above 9 is near perfect.

The problem for you is that the better the codec, the more bandwidth it uses. So you need to stick with 5.1 which is perfectly adequate http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Just ask if you have any questions, or if you want to try out varios codecs online, PM me and you can join our server to test it out. We can run a few games and see how you go with lag, if any. We can then try joining hyperlobby and see how it works.

One nit there were 945 people in HL and they never had to call police once and no one got drunk and not one car ran thur building.They had come from all over the world and we could understand each other perfect when we were in the hosts room [you shoot me and i will shoot you he he] If the host does not serve Coors or the drink you want there are lots of partys to choise from. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Well, you talked me into it. I'm going to give it a try, hopefully this weekend. When you see me in there and you blow my wings off at least let me know which one of you killed me. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Thanks Eagle http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif I'm addicted now. I don't think I will ever go back to UBI. No knock on ubi, I had a good time there, but HL is GREAT! I am trying to get the rest of the guys I normally fly with in there too.

Jex_TG - I haven't gotten teamspeak yet, but when I do I will take you up on that and see how it works for me.

Oh and my dialup http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif was no real trouble http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif I did get a few high ping warnings, but that ironed itself out fairly quick.
