I am a rabid fan of HL2. I have a feeling that this issue is ISP related and can't be fixed, but who knows--
Whenever I play MP HL2(be it DM, CS, or anything else), withOUT fail, every 7 minutes I time out. The game freezes and I have to rejoin. I can still chat to people thru STEAM, but the game hangs and I have to get out and rejoin. I am in Korea. When I was home in the states it didn't do this. Also, other games do not time out or hang.
Anyone else have these issues? Because it pisses me off that I will be leading in frag count then have to start at zero again. lol
I actually have to sit there and keep repinging the server to wait for it to boot my ghost. It's so annoying.
I'm here in the army, and we pay 40 bucks a month for a crappy DSL line(but it's all that's available), and there is, essentially, no customer service to be had--or if I attempt to talk to them, they don't understand me and I get frustrated.. lol. But in case you need to know the ISP is LG Dacom.
If you have any solutions or potential fixes, i'm all ears.
OS: XPMediaCenter, SP2
1.5 GB DDR2 mem
ati x300 graphics... it works for the game at least.. lol
anything else you need to know, please ask! I appreciate you reading and trying to help!
