I recently installed an ioquake3 server on a raspberry pi and it is working great. I have noticed some differences on the pings when I used the normal Gog Client vs when I use the ioquake3 engine on Windows 10.
While the two clients can connect to the server the Gog Client (Q3 version 1.32) gets a much lower ping than the ioquake engine on the same pc when connecting to the server.
On the Q3 engine i get around 20ms of ping when connecting to the server on lan. On the ioquake3 engine i get around 45ms. I installed ioquake3 on an Slackware 14.2 laptop and get the same performance as the windows pc when using the ioquake3 engine.
Is there any particular difference on how both clients do the connection to the server?
Thanks in advance
