Re: [Networking] Online Gaming on HughesNet

mw3 on the wii will not work with hughesnet, it will go to the public lobby to find a game but it just plain can't do it.

Re: Just a thought

I think you may have missed the point of this thread, was the point I was trying to make... There's sub-forums here at DSLReports.com specifically for gaming news. This thread was intended to be a repository of information regarding how certain games work under HughesNet.

Incidentally, my experience with Blizzard customer support have been pretty satisfactory. If I had Diablo III and my account was hacked, I'd just ring up Blizzard and have them help me out like they did the one time my World of Warcraft account got hacked. (Before I linked it to a Battle.Net account. Before it was mandatory.)
On that same note, I'm pretty sure people can't sell a Diablo III access key since they're linked to Battle.Net accounts... They'd have to sell the entire account... which would be pretty darn easy for the Blizzard customer service people to reverse, all things considered.

said by Kingdra :

A quick question... why can't one log-in to world of tanks? Surely there must be some way around this or some sort of error on the part of Hughes.net?

I wish I had an answer, but unfortunately, I never got it to work and the makers of the game were of absolutely no help whatsoever, either...

said by Doc Lithius:

Okay? What about it? I don't see what that thread has to do with Hughesnet specifically...

Ok if that ain't "big" news in ur opinion that involves satellite then how about this: »us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/···2?page=1

I'm sorry, but we aren't able to support satellite connections.

From Wildblue's site:

»get.wildblue.com/faqs.html#29

What is the impact of latency? Can I play real-time Internet games or make Internet phone calls on your service?
The WildBlue system is engineered to help offset the impact of latency, which is the delay caused by sending signals from the earth to the satellite and back again. However, there is a delay as the signal travels up to the satellite, back down to the gateway, up to the satellite and back down to your modem. For most applications this latency does not affect performance, however, there are some applications like voice over IP (telephone service delivered over the Internet, also known as VoIP), or real-time interactive gaming, where latency will have a noticeable effect on performance over the WildBlue network, as it would on any satellite-delivered service.
-Said by Omrakos (A Support Forum Agent for blizzard)

Now back to my previous post that had the thread, talking about accounts being hacked and such.. Yes i know this does nothing with satellite connection but it is something very serius. Say you have a blizzard account and all that with them just like me and you diablo3 activated through it, once you get a bunch of equipment and armour and etc on the game alone and you get hacked.. All your items in your inventory AND stash will be completely gone and be sold to the auction house through a hackers account.

Lemme make sure you have the picture and can see this clear.. Your out there defeating enemies and such and picking up very good and usable items and take all that back to your stash then a hacker comes along and takes all that and turns it all into money (making a huge profit from that) by selling it all in the auction house.. It don't end there, once he thinks he stole enough from you he will then try to sell your games product key for say $60 (thats the cost of diablo 3 right now)

Re: [Networking] Online Gaming on HughesNet

Yep, dialup.. It's slow and not really reliable but that's how I've been playing WoW for quite some time now. I can tell when I goto StormWind or some other big city as it lags some, but since I do mostly solo questing/leveling it mostly works out okay.

Re: [Networking] Online Gaming on HughesNet

Dial up will work for WoW.. You will however not be able to do anything with 20+ Players, You may beable to get away with 10mans. Satalite vs Dial up.. It's a Lose lose, Hughesnet you can raid, With minor lag (Non peak hours) Dial up you can do Arena's / Solo / Small Partys way better. So its a toss up on how ya wanna play.

It's back up again for now. Has anyone tried using dialup for D3 or WoW? I've heard of people getting in the low 200 latency, which is still better than the average 1900 satellite latency. If there is any large patches, or updates then you could just switch back to satellite. Just a thought?

I found a hard copy of D3 at a store near by. Installation was easy, and there wasn't any additional patches, or updates. My ping is right around 1200 to 2000, and there was always a consistent 2 to 3 second delay through out the game. The mobs were easy enough to kill that I as able to solo it. I didn't notice any disconnects, but I still haven't played it during peak hours as of yet. This game uses alot of mb, so I won't be able to be on for very long. The graphics is average, but still fun to grind. I'm not sure if the game was worth the 60 bucks, but maybe that will change when I get finally 4g broadband.

I will try to keep downloading WoW, I'm about half way there. Maybe in a couple of weeks it will finish downloading. lol

I'v had enough and seen enough for an entire year.. I cannot stand the lag and i cannot stand the disconnections from blizzards servers.. I lag like crazy when trying to heal in an emergency and the enemies lag like crazy on the blizzards side when i walk one direction and quickly go an opposite direction.. its a huge bother and i cannot stand it. Its like a broken record player.. its like the same joke being told over and over.. WELL IT AIN"T FUNNY ANYMORE!!

WoW should be fine, I played WoW up till cata. Between 2-7 you should beable to download 4-5 Gig's in one night, My brother and myself found using WoW's patcher to be rather slow and fail. Personaly i suggest you get a Resume program and Download the patches from Manual sites. That's by far the best way to patch on Satalite, Unless they changed all that in Cata.

Star Wars the Old Republic works well for me. i run about 1.5 seconds to 1.8 seconds of latency which can be delt with to a reasonable extent. you just have to be a tad more careful walkinga round and know that any action has about a .75 second delay before it engages on the server.

this run well until 4:30 to 5:30 pm CST. at that time the latency jumps way up to about 120 seconds to 180 seconds +. about 1030 ish at night it returns to normal. not sure why this happens. pretty well means you can play with your friends unless they can play during the day with you.

I will give it a try, and see if I can find a hard copy somewhere. I'm sure there's lots of updates to go with it though. Maybe I should start a Diablo 3 Satellite Internet Guild, so we can all go lag together. lol

Anyone know if Diablo 3 works on Hughes Net? Since WoW takes about 9 gb to download, how do people download WoW through their Satellites? It takes me about 2, or more days to even download 1 gb during the free early morning hours.

Diablo 3 player right here... yes it is playable through HughesNet but it seems as you go further into the game it gets worse (lag issues) .. At times you will have hard times defeating bosses cause it keeps giving you clutchy movements.. When playing singleplayer all alone you will be downloading least 2kbs worth of bandwidth most of the way off and on.

There will be times where you will easily get disconnected when sitting too long so you have to constantly keep moving in the game however either way you will still get disconnected if your moving around or not due to the lack of HughesNet's unstable servers.. Goodluck to you and try to have fun.

Well, for me it kind of jumps around.

You see, when I put in ping google.com, it gave me many mixed results, I tried it about 7 times. So basicly for me my ping is somewhat unstable. The lowest ping I could get was in the 800s and the highest is 1776. So yeah. :l

I also have Halo Reach here (Just matchmaking):

UNPLAYABLE. I can get into the matchmaking lobby, but the game will never be able to connect to a match.

I should also mention something else about Phantasy Star Online: Blue Burst on HughesNet. Don't try and multitask. The game doesn't like sharing a connection and if your ping gets above a certain point, it automatically bumps you off regardless of where you are or what you're doing.

- Phantasy Star Online: Blue Burst, SCHTHack server (Fully Playable*) -- Strangely enough, this game is completely and fully playable under HughesNet -- at the very least, in One Person mode. The only snags I've experienced are a delay when picking up items and the occasional failure to log in. (The game gets stuck on the code screen after updating.) As for in-game, the game seems to compensate for you hitting enemies and vice versa just fine, so the game works. ... provided the SCHTHack people can keep their servers up and running for more than a day at a time. They've apparently screwed something up in their latest update so it closes web browsers and blocks the "play as an NPC" program now. It's all very depressing. Nevermind, that's all been resolved. The game is working fine, aside from closing any program that has words like "cheat" or "trainer" in the window title. Regardless of what they are. Hah!

CEA isn't going to come yet, but at a later date. Have results for Sonic Generations

Sonic Generations (Fully Playable): Not that surprising, seeing as how the game doesn't have a matchmaking more of any sorts. But if you go to one of the options (Not the 30 second one) it will lode for EVERY one. That means to get to Planet Wisp, Its going to take you, like, 5 minuets.

What other games should I try? Also, I have a Linksys router, is that why my connection is apparently somewhat good?

OK i've just now found this gem of a board and i havent seen the one game i still play on here.

-Phantasy Star online Blueburst
as far as how well it works..it used to work great (given the few seconds of lag to pickup item drops and such, but i could deal with that) and since i want to say around mid year of 2010 ive had so much trouble.

Before 2010 mid year: i could log on almost every atempt no problem though it took a good minute to get to the character selection screen
but was constant.

After 2010 mid year : Between the hours of 5pm-10pm cst i can log on fairly easily (within 5 attempts or so) however if i play in a room with more than one other person i will disconnect usually.

Also if i try to log on any other time of the day...i could be sitting here for hours trying to do so (yes i have sat here before and tried to log on constantly for 3 1/2 hours and finally got on.

So i am wondering if anyone else can test this for me?
The server i play on (the only one really still alive) is PSOBB schtak
i would greatly apreciate this being tested.

Hoever i am getting a new modem in a few days (yet another 9000)
as this one is currently restarting for no aparent reason.
