You aren't using conky are you? (I was and I was about to tear my hair out after UT FPS dropped a whole bunch...)

Re: playing ut2004 online -> framedrop

some monitoring tools every few seconds (normally) update and that can cause a delay. Conky may create a noticable delay and drop your fps. BTW online is going to drop more because ut2004 has to sync everybody on the server, bots don't seem to take as great of a hit. Try going into a server with about 10 people and see if it still drops

Re: playing ut2004 online -> framedrop

Re: playing ut2004 online -> framedrop

What kind of internet connection do you have?  Connecting to a server that you make isn't really a good test, since you're just running it on your local machine.  What kind of pings are typically listed for the servers you're trying to connect to?

2mbit dsl

ping under windows and linux is 24 to our clanserver

but the fps (online) under win = 90+ and linux = 60 with lag

it isnt a problem with the connecting to the server!

Re: playing ut2004 online -> framedrop

try testing out your connection with a speed test (dsl speed test on google) to see if its a bit slow. in console do

[david@arch ~]$ ping -c 10 www.google.com

rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 17.108/19.677/23.615/2.429 ms

to make sure there is no packet loss or errors.
If that is all fine I would say check another game that is online. last thing I would check is dmesg or anything else relating a driver problem.

Re: playing ut2004 online -> framedrop

enemy territory seems to run fine (no lag)

haven't display the frame yet

does an et server only permit display fps if cheats are enable?
or can i ad this line: "/toggle cg_drawfps" to the start-command?

anyway i will test it out ;-)

Re: playing ut2004 online -> framedrop

Have you "preload player skins" enabled? If so disable it.
Empty your Cache.
If that don't help, try to delete your UT2004.ini and User.ini to let UT genrate default inis for you and try again.

I play UT2003/UT2004 with no problems under Linux. In the past when I had a DualBootSystem (Win/Lin) (must be in 2004 wink ) the felling was also better under lin than under win.
