MotoRacer1 Internet play problem
I have MotoRacer1 and have a problem during internet play now. (works fine in stand alone mode)
The game starts stepping (looks like severe lag) a couple seconds into race. This is very repeatable. It has happened with 5 different players. My current system is a p2-300 @ 504MHz with a Viper550 Video Card and 128M ram. All other internet games run fine. I have tried: rebuilding HD,updated all drivers, updated DirectX, un-Overclock,loading patches for game,re-install game. ALL to no avail.I do not see disk caching ( no HD activity).
I ran the game on my pentuim 233MHz system with no problem...what the heck could it be???
Please help anyone............Thanks
Are you using a modem? If so, is it a winmodem? I have a similar problem when I play Quake2 over the internet. I have a Best Data 56FW modem, and I believe it is the cause of my problems. Try using the modem from your 233 MMX in your PII 504.
ok- Both systems have the exact same model modem. Diamond Supra Express PCI- it is a winmodem.hmmmm wonder if this one is defective? i will swap em and see...thanks for the suggestion....i may just go buy an external modem...Thanks again Moto!
I swapped out modem with the one in my 233 system (the system that doenst show this problem. No change.
I will try disabling V90 next.
Moto1 came with DX5 but i did not install it due to having DX6 installed allready. could this be source of problem?
Other system differences
233MHZ=Win95.osr2,STB velocity PCI
504MHz=Win98,Viper V550 AGP
The slower 233(win95) system works via modem fine?
Any help would be much appreciated!

I noticed a strange thing with my modem: I can get Quake2 to work with the modem, but only when the CPU is underclocked. It's really annoying me, because at those clock speeds, I can play, but I get lagged to death. It is more frustrating to get lagged to death than it is to not be able to play at all.
Well, my point is that Winmodems are trash, and if there are any kind of inexplicable networking problems with your machine, the winmodem is to blame. I would go get an external modem right now, but I will soon be back at school with 10 Mbit ethernet. Ahh, ethernet, the only reason I go to school...
