Ok this is just odd. When I go into VEF missions and am waiting at the ready screen where it shows everyone's pings one of two things happens.

Either all the pings except the host are like 1,000+ and then the game runs with no lag

or

All the pings look good and fast, and it's lag city.



Every take-off is optional, but every landing is mandatory!

Ping is only one of many factors that contribute to lag. Back when I ran a server (IL2) I had very smooth games w/ pings in the 700's

that happend to a friend of mine also on LAN. just ignore it, it isnt the real ping, seems to be some strange programme error.
