Satellite gaming is affected directly by your ping.
On DRS, your ping will be in the 400-700 ms neighborhood.
On SRS, your ping will be in the 800-1200 ms neighborhood.

This has been my experience with online gaming over satellite:

MMPOLRPG
Ultima Online, Dark Age of Camelot, Everquest, Anarchy Online
These play well in DRS or SRS. Game play will be superior to a 24k dial up.

Shooters
Doom, Duke Nukem, Unreal, Tribes
These are playable in DRS if you play against dial up opponents only. They play very badly over SRS.

Real Time Strategy
Warcraft, Starcraft, Civilization, Pax Imperia
These are playable in DRS if you play against dial up opponents only. They play very badly over SRS.

Turn Based Strategy
These play very well in DRS or SRS and will be superior to a 24k dial up.

Yahoo Games
These play fine in DRS or SRS and will be superior to a 24k dial up.

  • I am trying to SKYPE my son in Germany. Mil. He keeps hitting the Roof my signal is so bad. I believe it is the Satellite Delay. It would be nice to get a YES or No for an answer. I believe it is the long delay.
