It is for servers. If you run a server you use it. It is not ment to be used as a client plug in... only a server plug in.

http://www.udpsoft.com/booster/ << i think that's what you're looking for.

and yeah, its server side only.

not only that, it must be a dedicated server.
HLDS Ping Booster is a small tweak to the Half-Life Dedicated Server that drastically reduces player pings and generally makes the game much more responsive.
I don't know but it doesn't seem to me that it requires adminmod

There is a "WinHL-Booster" though, Ultraq. And the only servers I've seen running it also had adminmod.
Search for "WinHL-Booster" on Google,then?

heh, had to remove the dash for the search to get it.
You're right i guess, that's the one used by most servers (or atleast cs server). I remember in the old days (cs days :p) it said something about "hullu" being the developer in the stuff you see while connecting to the server. My UDPSoft one is appearently a different one.

It wont "fix" them but it may help them to get a better ping. You really shouldn't host a server on a 56k, especially if its a listen server, but you cant run the booster on a listen server anyway.

And Why The Hell Is It A Ping BOOSTER? It should be called Ping Reducer or somtin so some ppl dont get confused.

It's not going to help if you're on 56k.

the ping booster should make dedicated servers run faster, but it dosent help when joining a server. however it is not reccomended to run a dedicated server on 56k. does that clear it up? (winHL does the same thing i belive).
