      Re: MW3 & Sky b'band

      If I contact Sky and ask them to put me on their Gamer Profile I understand that it will reduce my ping/delay, correct?

      On the pingtest website I get 35ms ping, but on speedtest I get 74ms. Which one is correct? I would guess that the pingtest one is because when I did the command to ping bbc.co.uk I got an average ping of 33ms.

      EDIT: Having just read back Shonk's reply to my bbc.co.uk ping command post, I get the impression that because my delay is 8, this is the best I will get from Sky, so changing to their Gamer Profile won't improve things?

      Gamer Profile = 8ms delays = same thing

      Didn't realise MW3 had this option?

      IWNTE - thanks for the confirmation. Looks my internet connection is as good as it can be and that I'll just have to accept the fact that the game is boorked!

      it should because black ops has this setting on black ops theres a search preference option just select local instead of all or anywhere what ever its called.

      Black Ops is based on Treyarch's engine

      MW3 is based on the older and crappier MW2 Engine
      and as such there is no option

      lets see if this works when you select multi-player press the select button you should get a search preference screen up.
