  • How to prevent DC

    Everyone knows about the DC monster, as they call it. He comes and spoils your fun, making you waste 3 minutes of your vmk playing time to sign back in and possible lose progress in whatever you were doing. Heres some ways to prevent that stupid dc monster from attacking you.
    -Note these tips are mainly for people who are getting on vmk for credits for halloween. These tips are not meant for people getting on just to chat with friends etr. however they might still help-

    1. Some say vmkpal has helped them not dc. Well its been the opposite for me, not only do my minigames run faster and smoother in my regular server (firefox) but i do not dc as much.

    2. Make sure no other programs are running while playing vmk. I've often tried to play vmk with AIM and Itunes running in the background. Well let me tell you. You CAN NOT i repeat CAN NOT do this. Your computer can not handle running such big programs all at once. Exit out of them completely.

    3. One way to speed up the way it runs is to hit ctrl alt delete, click on the processes tab, and find (depending on what your running on) VMKpal, firefox, internet explorer, netscape whatever. Right click on the process, and look for where it says change/set priority. Right now the priority should be on normal, which means all programs are equal. Change it to High, and your computer will focus more on running VMK than any other background programs its secretly running.

    4. Get some background on your computers hook up. If your computer is wirelessly connected to the internet your going to run a little slower simply because your connection is slower. If you have dial up, im sorry for you but you will be getting dc faster than i can say dc. If you are directly connected to the internet through your wall or whatever, youll be faster.

    5. Dont talk unless needed. If your on to get credits, your on to get credits, you shouldnt need to go up to some random person and start chattin there ear off. You will find it easier to go through vmk if you dont talk a lot.

    6. Have fun, do what you need to do, and get those credits before halloween. Forget the dc monster and lock him in a cage!

        I've said this before but just hit F5 when the message comes up. Don't hit 'OK' or whatever. Just hit F5 when you see the dc message. It will just reload and you don't have to log back in. I have a good computer and all but still it takes about 15 seconds to reload so it's not a huge deal.

            What should be the file name that I set to high priority?

              And do this right before you get in line for any staff event. If you try for more than 5 minutes and don't get in, go ahead and F5 it again.

                under the processes tab at the top. if your running vmk in VMKpal its VMKpal if its Internet explorer its internet explorer or explorer, mozilla firefox, netscape etr.

                                  This has absolutely no reason to be posted in here. This was completely off topic, you should have posted this something else, but sorry im not sure many people will get you extra items without knowing you at all.
