Oh dear. The temptation to be a grammar Nazi is getting too much.

And I do not think that's possible. Check your Ping.

AFAIK, there isn't a frame-skip option in SRB2. I've looked before, there wasn't any console command or menu option for it that I could find.

Also, does SRB2 lag in both software and OpenGL mode, or just OpenGL mode?

You can try editing the source and lowering TICRATE, but I'm not sure how well that would work out...

<bullcrap>
The way the Doom engine handles things is locked at 35Hz in gametics. It'd need a major rewrite on the things system, or either Doomsday-style camera/movement interpolation. It wouldn't make network games friendlier, though. (See: Quake's failure as a internet game leading to the creation of Quakeworld which was locked at 10hz)

It's also probably the reason why Sonic Quake doesn't exist. So many packets to manage and send out at a high rate that makes Battlefield 2 look incredibly optimized on dial-up you could imagine the network congestion if you lost 50 rings. Fixed TICRATES help enforce this.

Send out a packet that says they got hit and should lose rings, then let the ring calculation be handled client side, sending a packet out every few seconds with locations to make sure the client stays up to date?

Is he talking about single player? I think what he's looking for is EG. the option to halve the framerate, as seen in various doujin games. SRB2 already implements automatic frameskip. When the game slows down, it just processes more game logic frames between rendering. There's no need to set anything, because the system does it for you.

THAT is little weird, allways openGL gives really much lags but it just help me
in gameplay, i mean little less lags.

Wouldn't that cause constant C-Fails? IIRC, the netcode doesn't allow the host to tell the client "no wait that ring is over there not there go fix it," it can only say "you got something wrong gtfo."

Though, I don't think anyone is going to change the netcode. :/

I don't know. I'm not an expert in netcode, you are. :<

If it's only lagging in OpenGL, then you'll probably have to just play in the software renderer. What screen resolution and graphics card do you use? Have you tried lowering the screen resolution, turning off bilinear filtering, coronas, fog, lighting, etc?

It could be a refresh rate issue. He could be running into forced 60hz which does not even well with the preferred 70hz rate of the engine.

LOL, it´s true, thats why SRB2 has so many C-kicks.

Do you realize how much data would have to be sent to keep track of the location of every single ring in the level?

i don't know am i tried but i think openGL gives more ''system power'' cause my computer give more hard voices when i put oGL mode on.

Did you try using Mini-GL? IIRC Mini-GL is a Open-GL substitute that uses strains less of your computer.

MiniGL is an option typically made for wrappers of very old cards that do not have 100% OpenGL support. It wouldn't work any better for recent hardware, unless he was using a very, very old video card of a more exotic less-native chipset, like Rendition. It remains in Legacy as it was a relevant thing to have in the late 90s during its development.
