Re: [Networking] Online Gaming on HughesNet

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.

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!!

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

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?

@direcpc.com

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.

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.

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?

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: 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.

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...

- Magicka (Unplayable) -- You can browse servers just fine, though slowly. However, joining any game will return a "request failed" error followed by a "connection timeout" error. I should note, I only tested publicly-hosted servers. I have no idea if it would work through GameRanger or direct IP.

the coop missions on Red Dead Redemption work good on hughesnet on xbox live but on free roam the other players can see you lag and sliding around and smackdown vs raw 2009 on xbox live works decent when you join another player in a 1v1 match but if the other player is using and created wrestler you lag horribly and saints row the third works great you can play co-op with other players and you can play whored mode and minecraft works on the xbox 360 but you cant join other peoples games but people can join your games and for some reason when your playing with somebody you are invisible

These have all been tested during "Free time", early in the morning, and noonish. Those appear to be the best times to play games on Hughesnet. Around 8-11PM CST appears the be the worst time to play. I also try out all these with turbo page disabled and enabled, but disabled appears to work the best.

World of Tanks works. It has a heavy input lag, but it is playable if you can get used to the lag. Apparently there is some kind of lag compensation that kind of makes the playing field even more or less, even so you'll have a hard time hitting the more agile tanks. For some reason log in can take a long time, I've noticed that using the ipconfig /flushdns before you log in seems to speed up the login process.

Flyff works. Moderate input lag. Game randomly disconnects sometimes, and I'm unable to log in between 8-10 PM CST.

Runes of Magic works, patches are usually big downloads though so it's best to patch during "Free time". Little input lag, much snappier than other MMOs on Hughesnet.

League of Legends works, the input lag is more annoying than usual, be prepared to issue commands twice.

Runescape works okay, just wouldn't PvP in the wilderness if I was you. Like any other game on Hughesnet, there is an input lag, but it didn't bother me much because I used to play Rs on dialup all the time.

GunZ will connect to games, but is unplayable. You may register hits on your end but you won't actually be hitting anyone. That and people whine about your ping.

Dragon Nest works, and is kind of playable, becomes very difficult at higher levels. While on your end you might dodge an attack, the server will still register a hit on you. Makes some bosses harder than they actually are.

Soldat kind of works, but overall is unplayable. Most servers will kickban you if your ping goes over a set amount. You might be able to play on "climb" servers but the lag might make it look like you're using a hack. Was playable on Dialup so I thought I'd try on Hughesnet.

I tried Minecraft on the 360 and I wasn't able to connect to anyone, and no one was able to connect to me. I tried with 3 different people and results were the same. Minecraft over Xbox Live seems unplayable to me.

Battlefield Heroes doesn't appear to work. It'll search for a game and say it found one, after a minute it'll say connection lost.

APB Reloaded connects, but "rubber bands" too much to be playable. I played it for about an hour before giving up. I was constantly bumping into objects and running into walls and being killed before I could tell I was even being shot at. Unplayable.

I'll add more games when I can.

Tera Online (Playable) - Expect input lag. No disconnect's.

Tested 2AM-7AM(Free Time) Play's almost perfect. Minor Input lag.

Tested 8AM-7PM(Peak Hour) Minor Input Lag, From 8AM-4PM, Moderate Input lag from 5PM-7PM.

Tera Launcher Issues - This is a pretty common error. Sometimes the launcher wont load after the first inital patching. To fix this, Disable you're internet connection, Click the Tera Launcher, Wait 1-2 mins to get the error "Connection cant be made" Renable you're Internet connection. You will be able to login in now.

This error happen's 50% of the time. Just a work around for when it happen's

I have played SWTOR with Hughes Net for several months now. However, I cannot play during peak usage times (4pm - 8pm) or when there is a storm, or recently when the wildfire smoke is hanging in the air. The best time to play is the morning hours.

Minecraft for the PC works on some servers and is playable. Dedicated servers obviously work the best. It is playable but you'll have a really hard time hitting other players if you're trying to play PvP/Hardcore.

Realm of the Mad God works and plays fine.

Lost Saga connects. However it is unplayable because you're behind everyone in terms of connection speed, so you're constantly getting hit while being unable to react. Also a bubble pops up over your characters head that says "Slow Connection" which annoyed me.

Just our of curiosity, does Minecraft still eat bandwidth faster than Pac-Man eating dots on a Power Pellet-induced rampage?

I'll look into that. I played for about 30 minutes but didn't notice a huge amount of usage at the time. Lately my connections been crappier than usual, and I can't connect to games I usually play. I'll check in a day or two.

Well, I ask because with the absolute latest update, supposedly, they finally optimized the bandwidth usage for playing online. I haven't had the opportunity to check myself, either, but I have been quite curious!

No worries, though.

Guys there is a few games that work over xbox live that actually run kinda well.

Gta Iv + Episodes of liberty city = Depending on download allowance with hughesnet the more its filled the better it will run. Has some lag you dont lag but other players do and you lag too them unless its in between your unlimited region which is 2am and 7am which makes it run better.

Black ops or any other first person shooter will actually connection to a host if you have patience but experiance alot of lag cause they are thaicy games which means the lag you get is random might run fine then lag everywhere so unless you like dieing alot I wouldnt recomence it

TDU2 (Test Drive Unlimited 2) Same as Gta IV has some lag when someone enters the lobby your in game will intemently freeze for at least 3 secs maybe even freeze your console to where you have to shut it off

Thats all I know of we have Basic our download speed is like 0.53mbps and our upload is at 0.18 mbps and our ping is minimum 800ms moderate 1400ms and high 1763ms and our ping is stable at high

Pc gaming runs great just depends on the performance of the pc thats running the game at the time every now and then there is a little bit of lag to alot most the time none it just depends on the pc and the performance its running and the performance the game needs to run.

Theres goods news to all this you ready?? As of fall 2012 Hughesnet is launching Gen4. They come out swap your hardware (Modem and Dish) And it fixes all of this youll be able to play online Via Xbox live, Playstion Network PC or whatever you guys play. It only costs depending on your plan which for us its an extra 10 bux a month cause were not buying the equipment were renting it from them. But from what they say you on there original plans they have such a high setting cause of where your signal goes. Gen4 rapidally sends it plus the download and upload speed is mulitpled by 5 too 10 times what your plan has lowering the signal of ping making it better for online gaming.

Like lets say you have basic plan your upload and download should be 1.0mbps which is the same has time warner roadrunner basic I think. And your ping is around lets say 1400. Gen4 basic is 12.0mbps to 15.8mpbs for upload and download resaulting your ping down to 50 which isnt to bad for xbox live cause there servers setting is around 37ms for their ping.

Hope this helps guys. Do what I did and switch to Gen4

And oh yeah almost forgot if you experiance on xbox live that ppl can hardly hear you cause your breaking out you go to your dashboard and go to network settings go to advanced and go to where it says manuly enter dns address for primary put 8.8.8.8 for secondary put 8.8.4.4 thats googles public server it actually fixes that a little bit and also fixes your connection a little bit

Any more questions just shoot me an email at acheivement.unlocked@hotmail.com thats actually how its spelled no lie. Or add me on xbox live my gamertag is twistymcspliff

Happy Gaming!

I think someone is in lala land...

Xbox Live on Gen4 does NOT currently work. Xbox 360 CAN connect to the internet in diagnostics, but fails to reach Xbox LIVE.

Seems to be an issue with IPv4/IPv6 setup on the system. They are working on it last I heard.
