Check your ping to servers!

Post by Zvny on Sun Oct 01, 2017 9:24 am

Hello all

I wanted to share this little "trick" to see what your ping is to certain servers to reduce lag.

All you need is Command prompt.
https://gyazo.com/bb38ec96ba1040d6d77e7b84fee10d5b
Should open this: https://gyazo.com/17a4e9d969beffaae68933b33b8f9992

Open command prompt and type the following: "ping oldschool*.runescape.com" *world number like 17,04,14 etc"

Outcome: https://imgur.com/a/6SDXR

And it will tell your ping in ms.
remember W314 and W317 are clan worlds!

Hope it helped.

Thank you for this Zvny, never knew you could even test this! Thanks for adding pictures too

I found that w12 is the optimal for me, but w17 and w14 work fine Smile

Grats on 800 posts! and no problem, i would recommend 17 since its like half the ping of 14. But what works, works right?

Have fun!

And you can use the tracert command to find the path that your packets take to get to the server.



This is from NZ to one of the Aussie worlds, notice how there is a big jump in ping at 208.50.202.130.

Lets look up 208.50.202.130:


USA. :/
