Just to let everyone know... I just played a game of sins online on a 28.8k dialup connection, about 1/2 to 1 seconds lag time between actions and receipt of actions, so no competitive playing for sure, but IT WORKS.
Yes, I thought this should go into the technical forum b/c it obviously must be a bug in the game. Even old games that I've played that are DESIGNED to run on dialup don't work this well.
God bless you IC, God bless.
