How to get a nice ping ? Setting the rates

29 March 2009

Hi dudes,

In this post we’re going to see how to reduce the latency betwen you, and the host ! But, what means ping ??

Ping is a computer network tool used to test whether a particular host is reachable across an IP network; it is also used to self test the network interface card of the computer, or as a speed test. It works by sending ICMP “echo request” packets to the target host and listening for ICMP “echo response” replies. Ping measures the round-trip time and records any packet loss, and prints when finished a statistical summary of the echo response packets received […] Source : Wikipedia

So, there’s the way to get a nice ping in game. In console, you must type :

cl_cmdrate 101
cl_updaterate 101
rate 25000

You can also tune it to get the best ping you want, but you don’t have any loss in game, or choque.

h2 How do I see the loss, choque and FPS in game ?

Type net_graph 3 in the console, it’ll display informations about your latency, the loss, the FPS etc … in the right bottom of your screen !
