win98 and disconnection problem

Recommended Posts

ppl who have win98 experience a disconnection pb when playing:

1) once the game joined and the team chosen, we see strange stuff for 1 second (car flying in the air etc) then everything goes dead and you play like if you're alone.

2) alt-tabbing to the console we notice that the line "D/L rate:xx" is stuck. that means the exchange of data is cut.

3) disconnecting and connecting again doesnt solve the problem. it goes back to situation described in 1)

we notice that outgame chat is possible if we havnt switched back to the game yet. once we alt tab to the game to play, and alt tab back again later, the exchange of data is cut, and outgame chat also.

so that means in more clear terms:

-> connection to the server is cut when alt-tabbing to gta3 for play.

ppl who experience this have win98 and DSL connection

they have disabled their firewall, and use ASE to choose a server.

it would be nice if you go through a test on a win98 computer to see if you experience the same things.

good luck

Yes i was wondering if this was another 98 bug, same happens to me. I tried over my network and the rate just freezes at zero. Same with online play. (besides the fact that mta doesnt seem to like my beta turtle beach sound drivers i always get a VXD error)

I have the same problem, flying cars on start and guys running straight into walls cars with drivers just sitting there. I have Windows ME, DSL connection and GTA3 Version 1.0 with no CD Crack.

i thought the win98 patch was for that runtime error... i guess i'll check it out then... works for ME too right?

edit: after testing it, i noticed hat the cars flew for a longer period of time... but other then that the only other thing it changed was that i started getting the 10035 error... but, ill keep tryin.
