Re: High Scores

Because I'm not a meany, I'm gonna share some info that could possibly help people out with hit-reg and aim in BF1942, if they're willing to go this far!

I've been linux distro hopping for a while.  Also been using different VPNS. 

Drauger OS is a linux OS that's solved all my previous bf42 problems.  Smooth as butter and somehow it negates the inherent bf1942 mouse accel that's plagued this game from the very start.  Aiming feels like CSGO raw input and dare I say, reg also improved.  You know those very rare days or moments in bf42, when your reg feels so crisp and easy?  Well it's like that, but all the time!

I've wasted some time and money with a few VPN's.  The ones that worked best for me are pureVPN and cyberghost, the latter being my preference.  It's a bit trial and error with what servers (route) to use, but I've found 2 or 3 with black and white reg difference.  Sometimes bf42 can be so inconsistent with reg, so I setup a windows 7 laptop with bf42, to cross-check every change I made, so I knew it wasn't BF42 playing tricks on me.

I'm no tech guru by any stretch and I can't be bothered to get my magnifying glass out to analyse why all this helps.  It just does.  Anyway, I'll never go back to windows, EVER!  Cheers to !sudo Corax for always being a stud muffin and helping me.

Only downside was a bit of messing around with linux to make it compatible with BF42.

I thought many times to set a second OS on a separat SSD, just for Bf1942.


Sadly you read mixed experiences about different Linux Trials for Bf1942


I guess, i would make it, if i would know how. I'm Noob with Linux without a grafic Menu.

Thanks!

Im no expert either, but sometimes one pick up on things. One example when windows 7 came out they put woip (woise over internet) as prio A in the network cache and so gaming packets was somewhere back in the list.

Also Telia did the same when they started pushing out the tv over internet boxes, everything else got low prio, and ofcourse they had too few routers back then to run it all smooth. Lag deluxe for some year/s

So yeah, thinking of this i can belive that a vpn can get a better gaming experience if it can dodge a "bad" ISP routing and packets prio settings.

Hey Butch, I guess firstly let's say thank you for sharing the info.

My question is, why to bother so much? You say "I've wasted some time and money with a few VPN's."

Why is that? You had decent berlin rounds way back before even without using any vpn or whatever. I have been "stuck" with W10 ever since I installed it. Bad regs are also bothering me from time to time, but okay i'll deal with it. Can be pain in the ass sometimes, I'll admit, I also at some point type in chat " these regs are joke" or just smth, but many of us infantries experience that.

I keep hearing " i couldnt care less. I dont bother over this old game, im here just to chill", i think it was also you personally couple of times in the past and then u come with this take.. At some point, we will all leave this game for good..

Sorry, wasnt meant in a bad way.. just would love to hear honest answer. Cya

A perfect KDR of 7. What a rape fest. I still believe your regs would be better on 1.6 with the current set up you have.

Hit reg is crazy and seemingly consistent throughout the whole game. Can't remember to have played a single round like that in at least a decade.

Re: High Scores

So, the lesson of the day to have consistent regs is:

1) Get Linux with the Drauger distro
2) Get a VPN and choose the best route

Awesome. Except most can't be bothered to get a Linux distro just to play BF1942, would an emulator for the Linux distro you use work Butcher?

Re: High Scores

Nah, that won't workie workie. According to Distrowatch, Drauger (what a name) Linux is based on Xubuntu.

I haven't been able to even get BF1942 running on Ubuntu-based distros, so I think this is a success story that's specific to fellow player butcher.

It probably depends on your hardware configuration too, and maybe he was lucky that he got the right one for it.

Re: High Scores

...

You have just to hold the gun and trigger it, does not matter where. 

Reminds me on the vids of Bf Soldier. No special Aim, but regs like a God, ... oh, sorry, ... a King.

Also, that you are always earlier. Just look the angle of your enemies. They see you later, or let's say they see you on a different position.

You are also hard to hit.  It's not because all others are noobs, it's just because they see you a bit on a different position.

(Those moments, in a close fight, you shoot at an enemy in front of you, you see him shooting 70-90° in another direction, but he hits/kills you).

...

I guess many players are searching just now for an small empty HardDisk in da House smile

Re: High Scores

I checked the video. This is what i called "not fair play".
While you shooting hitbox feels like 10x size. Easy hits.
Simple example.

He shot two shots. Look how long that hit indicator remains on... The moment he shot them the guy was not that far away. The hitbox is off here, but it's nothing out of what can happen with a normal game installation and certainly not 10x size.

Re: High Scores

Jumps on point, regs like it should. You're playing with fire, getting a game work like it's supposed to. Noone has done that for years now, everyone's been playing a different glitchy version of 42'. Imagine the raw talent we'd see if everyone had it the same.

Have you tried playing engineer with expacks; is changing from expack to "blow off" sticking to "blow off" or (buggingly) swapping back and forth like it usually does?

@seventy: I believe Beer from Asstralis play BF1942 through Ubuntu. At least I know he is playing on Linux 100%.

Yep, it's definitely working on Ubuntu for a lot of people, just not for me for some reason. Maybe it's just some simple tweaking, but I gave up. I think I might try out Drauger after I've made a backup of my partition.

Thanks Doubti.  The buggy expacks are still present, unfortunately. 

Yes, Beer plays through Ubuntu with minimal problems.  I tried Ubuntu, Ubuntu Gamepack, Mint, Pop_Os and Fedora.  I got them all working with BF42 to some degree, but none gave me the same results as Drauger.  Pop Os and Ubuntu were quite easy to get BF42 working. 

@To whom it may concern:  I got a lot of help from Linux discord mods and wouldn't want everyone to go gung ho, unless you know what you're getting into, except for Arkos of course!  Seventy might have a valid point regarding my hardware configuration.  I might have just really lucked out this time.

It's been consistently this good, as you see in the video, for weeks now with no change.   I don't play every day (or week), but when I do it's a pleasure and much more enjoyable than what used to be the lottery of logging on to a server, only to be bitterly disappointed that my reg isn't nearly the same as it was the night before!

@To whom it may concern:  I got a lot of help from Linux discord mods and wouldn't want everyone to go gung ho, unless you know what you're getting into, except for Arkos of course!  Seventy might have a valid point regarding my hardware configuration.  I might have just really lucked out this time.

It's been consistently this good, as you see in the video, for weeks now with no change.   I don't play every day (or week), but when I do it's a pleasure and much more enjoyable than what used to be the lottery of logging on to a server, only to be bitterly disappointed that my reg isn't nearly the same as it was the night before!

Yeah the expack thingy might actually be server sided now when I think about it.
For how long have you played this way through Drauger?

Re: High Scores

It’s not just the OS, the hardware is also at play here.
