I have a dial up modem (nothing else available) and the presence of so many pictures etc. makes loading very slow

Stay away from threads marked with PICS-56K WARNING!

Do you have problems flying online?

I have no trouble playing online with my 56k dialup, but I completely avoid these forums while at home due to every man and his dog having a .jpg attached to his message http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-mad.gif. Today, however, I'm at work http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I'm on a 56 dialup too.As Spinne pointed out, as long as I stay away from the threads marked 56K WARNING I'm ok.There's a limit on the size of sigs anyway which is fine, no problems here.As far as playing FB on a 56 goes nothing plays better than FB! The multiplayer code is just fantastic IMHO.I can even play on US servers and get a sub 250 ping. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
