Gamespy Arcade
Posted by Achronos at 12/1/2001 7:40 AM PST
After playing with Gamespy Arcade, you may have noticed a few oddities with the gameplay. Halo multiplayer is very lag intolerant, and Gamespy Arcade's tunnel software seems to have a few issues as well. So, a few tips to help you along:
  • Halo requires approximately 128k/sec upstream per player, not per box. This applies to both the host AND the clients.
  • The above bandwidth requirements pretty much means if you're using a cable modem, then you probably can't play Halo online with more than 1 other person, and maybe not even that. Most cable modem providers limit home users to 128k upstream.
  • Try to limit your network's usage to only the Xbox. I found that when someone sent me an ICQ message, everyone slowed down for about a second.
  • Finally, above all, remember that Halo was not designed for Internet play. So, have fun, but have patience, it takes a bit of effort. Once it does work, though, it is worth it.
