some details at profile info

Hi, I just meant to add some more stuff, after you added GameRanger ID to Messaging section at our profiles.

What I wanted to suggest is to pick some other messaging services which would be actually used by our members. For example, Skype isn't there, while I don't know if anyone uses any of those services - with exception to MSN Messenger.

Also, could that be possible to put GameRanger ID to the top of the that section, as this one might be the most important to us? And if name of the section could be renamed to "Messaging and GameRanger", or something like that, as GameRanger could be used for chat (we could create a room for up to eight people to chat)...

 

These are only some ideas, I'm happy that we have GameRanger ID there now.

It is, but I don't really think it's that necessary really. Skype, possibly, I'll see but I don't know anything about it as I've never used it - what would a user enter?

For Skype one should enter his username, such as username789... Although, if you hesitate to add it - it is unnecessary. If we want to chat, we would most likely come online at GameRanger, as some of us might use Skype, some use MSN Messenger, some other use something else, etc... GameRanger is something that most of us will have, especially because we play Stronghold, Stronghold Crusader, Stronghold 2, and Stronghold Legends using this service.

I'll add Skype in shortly, I'll edit this post once it's in.

We do have a small room in a Teamspeak server, but there's really no ID system for that. The admins (myself included) sometimes get out of control, and often times "nomads" (as I like to call large groups of people who shift into a room to talk to one guy) pass by "The Keep" (our room). If people don't want to use Skype or MSN, they are welcome to use that. :)

In that case, TeamSpeaker would be nice to be added to profile info. I do know some guys use TeamSpeaker while playing, as it enables player directly to speak to each other, which can be useful. :)

 

Although I would like to add that I have noticed that many players now use the "Oah" taunt (F1) when they want quickly to tell his ally to pay attention to something. That can be useful one as well.

 

And, by the way, I do not want to suggest that we should all have TeamSpeaker and use it during the game - I only say it can be useful, but I believe I saw some players using it, and they were causing lag. Maybe this won't be the case now - now people have faster internet connections though...

Oops. Completely forgot about that. :) It's in now.

The difference between using it & not would be so negligible it would be insignificant - it would be their connection to blame (i.e. bandwidth limits for example)

 

If people don't want to use Skype or MSN, they are welcome to use that.

I have a rather bad internet connection myself, considering what others have in my region. On Teamspeak servers, there are pictures called "banners" which are shown in the upper right hand corner throughout all of the rooms. If said picture is a GIF (an animated picture) it usually gives me lag spikes (quick jumps in ping from, for example, 90 to 140, or even to 600+ briefly). So if it's one solid image, there should be no problem, from my experience. :)

By the way, what is your internet speed, Charles?

I pay for 2 megabits (not megabytes) per second in speed. On good download servers (Steam) I usually float between 50 and 110 kb/s download speed, while lower end servers I usually download 30 kb/s on. On game servers hosted in central or eastern US (near me) I usually get between 70 and 90 ping on them.
