Hi Trinkett,

It would be cool to play some games with you and/or see how you and Landlord get along. He has been dominating us for a couple years now and needs a check on his awesomeness.

first step, try this: viewtopic.php?f=27&t=29209
second step, try emailing dustin at sillysoft or PM'ing him here in the forums.

see you soon!

Hey Bean

He said the game is laggy, he didnt ask for his registration:)

Maybe Dustin can do a server restart?

sorry; i thought it was related to not having an updated version. Could be weak or overloaded internet service. Sometimes Lux gets laggy too.

Hi trinkett, welcome back!

Are all hosts laggy for you or just some special hosts? Maybe it is your Internet connection?

Hi Trinkett,

Good to see you are back. I have the same I think. Lux seems more unstable last few months. at first I thought it was my pc but now with this other one I have the same issue it seems. Lag maybe dunno, but I have to close the game. It really starts flipping. See you on the battle field!

Lag can be caused by many factors. If it's only happening in network games, then it's something with the network, either yours, the backbone, or the host. Try different hosts to see if the host may be the factor. Depending on your world-wide location, some hosts may be better for you compared to other located players. The internet backbones are under heavy load at the moment due to so much work-from-home and virtual activity during lockdowns.
