Deliberately slower ping

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi,

 

So I'm planning on making a video about Deliberately increasing you ping to obtain a advantage in a online multiplayer game. Ofcourse this doens't work. I did some digging and wanted to show everyone one and for all that this doen't give you any advantage.

The problem is, to make the video I wanted to show 4 diffrent pings.

1. my normal ping to the server about 8ms

2. a longer but still quite decent ping of 30

3. a quite bad ping of 100

4. and a really bad ping just to show. 

But the problem is, I could't find ant way to do this. Is there any way how i could achieve this?

If any of you has suggestions to what games i should try let me know too. (I was planning on doing: CS:go, Fornite and Pubg)

Thanky you very much.

wifi limiting may work depends on what router you have

you could move your pc as far away as possible (longer ethernet cable/wifi)

use USB wifi

I found a guide to simulating fake lag using ipfw on https://web.archive.org/web/20130728220309/http://blog.gradientstudios.com/2012/08/13/simulating-network-lag-for-testing-games/ (archive because for some reason the current page isn't working for me). I'd recommend checking it out.

 

Valve also has a console command 

net_fakelag

which lets you change latency in-game (although it requires sv_cheats 1, so idk how useful it'll be).

 

Good luck with your video.

wifi jamming

Not wise to give advice that would land the OP in trouble with the government. Jamming at least in the US is illegal and you get about a $30,000 fine from the FCC. 


You ever notice that many establishments have a sign that as "No Shirt, No Shoes, No service"? They never say anything about pants............ You know what that implies. You dont have to wear pants.

Yes. Because you have to actively jam 2.4 and or 5 GHz. Any jamming by non law enforcement or government is illegal. It's illegal to even own a jammer.

Is it really wise to show people how to do this stuff?  The last thing we want are more people doing it.

Even if its just a demonstration there is no point in showing people. 

 

Also it wont work because if you introduce a delay you are only hurting yourself. Its easy to do but I think servers have fixed it since the old days of lag buttons in halo

@mynameisjuan

 

youre wrong, you can get advantage with lag. i will give you one example:

1) enemy stands still in the hallway, youre behind corner

both your and enemy game client know your positions, you just dont see each other because of a wall

 

2) you peek from the corner

your client already knows the enemy was there just renders the new frames

enemy client still thinks youre behind corner and doesnt render you coming out

 

3) you shot him before he even saw you coming out

 

 

i would recommend you watch videos from battlenonsense (https://www.youtube.com/user/xFPxAUTh0r1ty/videos), he did analysis of netcode for some games and im sure he shows some of the scenarios

If he is increase his ping its the opposite.

no its not, the information of enemy standing in the hallway doesnt change so its not affected by ping while him peeking from the corner doesnt get to the enemy client fast enough...
