    Warbirds of Prey servers (Spits vs. 109's & Zekes vs. Wildcats) are going through some changes.

    Please bear with us.

    In order to join Warbirds of Prey servers you will now need to set your network speed in your game setup menu as shown below,



    or,



    This can also be set in game on the Hardware setup\Network menu.

    If you join by hyperlobby you need to alter your clientrate in Program Files\HyperLobbyPro3\hlpro as shown below,



    or,



    I have also made a self installing mod that will edit the HyperLobby file for you that can be downloaded here.

    Please PM me if that link runs out.

    Please PM me with any problems or questions.

    They do not have to 'enforce' it, if you do not make the changes outlined you cannot join the server. LOL

    Not directly, you can still set up your netspeed as shown above but you will probably be kicked by the ping-limit...

    S! all.

    Small correction here. The Zekes vs. Wildcats server is still using FBD, so the changes are not needed to play on this server. Also, if you have made the changes to your HL.ini file, in order to enter the Spits server, you can still enter Zekes without any problems. So no worries there. Sorry for any confusion.

    S!

    Hi, quick question.
    If I make these changes, will it prevent me from accessing any other servers?
    Also, why the change? I have no idea about any of this type of stuff and would like to know more.
    Thanks

    Changing the netspeed effects the amount of data flow between server and client.

    Primarily the server dictates to the clients the "maximum" connection speed they can join at. For instances a server running at 56k limits the clients to the same netspeed setting (5000 bytes/sec). Unless the client chooses a lower setting.

    With regards to data transfer the server does do all the hard work during a dogfight. If the server is set to ISDN (8000) and a client is set to the same or higher the connection between them will always be ISDN. From what I've seen on running a server set at 28.8k clients are given 3000 bytes/sec and send 1000 bytes/sec to the server.

    All the work should be done at the server end so knowing the server and bandwidth limitations helps.. for me netspeed only becomes and issue if you want to run your own server or start a dedicated server.

    Hope that helps!

    I typically use direct IP anyway. No problems here.
