Game bandwidth

Postby Xac » Thu 26. Jan 2017, 15:04

I was wondering if anyone knew how much data playing UT online uses per hour...is it possible to make an estimate? I was wondering how bad it would be if you are on a limited broadband connection and have a tight GB/month limit.
I tried to drown my sorrows, but somehow they learned how to swim...

Well i can measure it for you tonight(not claiming it's gonna be 100% accurate), all i know is that the game is using somewhere around 700Kb/s - 1Mb/s

I can confirm Zoners answere.. I had something between 1000 kb/s and 1700 kb/s.. up and down combined the last time the task manager was open, too. Maybe there was something in the background, too.. don't know.

You can also restrict the bandwidth in the gamesettings.. and force your max netspeed lower than the server would send you (why ever you should do that), reduce the quality, so you can play like on isdn.

After playing 3.5h the download was 113MB, and the upload 33.5MB, my connection ingame is set to LAN/T1

Edit: Forgot to add that there were 20+ players in average, and most of the maps were with lots of action in one place
