    Awesome, it's 3:14pm, admittedly the middle of the day and I'm struggling to get a game of anything that's not walker assault or the team vs team mode.

    This is not a good sign.

    hardly, GMG do so much business they've had to source keys from not completely legit sources - bet they can't keep up!

    So tempted to buy AC:S from them so cheap, but Ubi are one of the companies who've said no they are not a valid reseller.

    Make sure you get a confirmation email from them, and check that it's no longer in your Games section when you log into GMG.

    Pretty much unlocked all weapons minus the last one... Almost at Level 21 so should have that done soon... Weapons range seems kind of limited.

    Fixed the black screen crashing, alt enter into windows mode solved that, then stayed in borderless fullscreen.

    Next issue, no in game sound. Music and menu is fine, just no ingame.

    Trying a fix that was for BF4, edit config etc, see what happens!!

    My take on the game: Bit of fun, but it doesnt feel like a new egames contender for multiplayer open warefare arcade carnage. Compared to battlefield, its ok, but it feels like a nerfed game for consolers and not serious for PC - No server search? wtf, i want 20ping, not 200++

    My preorder from jbhifi arrived fine today, with the battle of jakku early access code etc. Also it is 4 dvds, I don't think I need to download anything which is great.

    Pretty slow to install still mind you...

    Run the resource monitor then while connected to a server then look under the TCP connections. It will show you what your ping is at, one will be to origin and the other will be the server you're connected to.

    Just don't see anything about it in the forums.

    You don't see anything about it cause that's a stupid way to try and decipher ping as I've already explained to you once. But keep flogging that dead horse.

    Not surprised. I don't see this game being that popular for long really.

    You explain nothing, and posting stuff 5+ years old. I'm sure its gotten better over the 2-3 release of windows since then.

    I do this for alot of games and to be it seems pretty much spot on.

    Fuck me dead, it has nothing to do with windows. You clearly have nfi how TCP works at all. What you are seeing there is the ACK time to your request, without knowing the client server model IT MEANS NOTHING. But f it, what do it professionals, devs and you know a fucking game developer know. You clearly know more and have demonstrated that with your experience as a WoW GM.

    So when I load BF3/4, TF2, WoW and other MMO's that have in game ping, so when I look at the TCP connection they are pretty much the same give or take alittle bit. Your telling me im wrong at what im seeing.

    Also doing a tracert on the IP you're connected to will trace the path and will give you an idea where its coming from.
