Playing Internet Games on Dial-up

by hmiller 12. November 2009 21:17

The Internet provides a vast variety of entertainment. Its options are nearly endless and is expanding and improving daily. With the development of broadband services, the gaming and entertainment world online has revolutionized from its early beginnings only a short decade ago. Many people, unfortunately, do not have access to broadband and many real-time online games require higher speeds than dial-up can provide.

One type of popular online games today are role playing games, or RPG's. This means that each player is playing the part of a character in a virtual world. Many times, the game sequences in real time, and dozens or even hundreds of people can also play the same game from all over the world, and the events of the game are happening at the same time for everyone. Dial-up and other slow connections often cannot display passing events in real time because of latency, the delay experienced because of long loading times. RPG's can be played on dial-up if it is not in real time, or if the graphics are simple and easy enough for dial-up to load. An example of this is

There are many fun and engaging games that can be played on a dial-up connection, many of which are very popular for dial-up and broadband users alike. The key to finding a dial-up compatible game is to look for flash games. Flash games are games that are loaded by adobe flash player and are run from the website itself. This means that once the game is loaded, it runs completely without using your Internet connection. Usually, flash games do not require you to leave the webpage you are on when it loads. The means you can play the games offline! The following are some websites that offer free online flash games that work great with dial-up Internet connections:






These are only a few of the hundreds of gaming websites. Other gaming websites can be found by searching for “flash games” or “free online games” on a search engine like google.

The games may take much longer to load on dial-up than they would on broadband connections, but once they do, you can play for hours without experiencing any problems because of having a slow connection. In fact, you can even disconnect from the Internet after the game has loaded, and continue playing the game from the cached webpage. This means that you don't have to tie up your phone line in order to play for extended periods of time.

Here are a few other tricks and tips:

  • Save your favorite games to your bookmarks or favorites list so you can access them quickly.

  • Load a new game on a separate window while you play another game. This way, you don't have to sit and wait for the new game to load. It can load in the background while you are playing on another window.

  • There are hundreds of gaming websites, and some are better quality or load games more quickly than others. If you find a game you like, but the game window is very small or takes too long to load, run a search query for that game's name to find other websites that have that game. Chances are, you'll find a website that plays the game better than the other one.

  • Minimize a game window rather than closing it. This way, if you have other work to do or need to leave the computer for some time, you can set your computer to “Stand by” and come back later. You can then open the window you have minimized and your game will still be there. You won't have to start over or wait for it to load again.

Don't let having dial-up get you down, there's still so much fun to be had!

I dont really know what youre talking about here.  This cant be the only way to think about this can it?  It seems like you know a lot about the subject, so why not explore it more?  Make it more accessible to everyone else who may not agree with you?  Youd get a lot more people behind this if you just stopped making general statements.

grand mondiale review

Cellular blogging is an exciting phenomenon that issweeping the blogosphere. One of the understandings why a lot of bloggers are attracted to the medium of blogging in first place is that they enjoy being able to doregular updates and posts that keep all of their visitors up to speed with currentsituations. Mobile blogs, or"moblogs," take this to the extreme by providing users to post matters literally as they occur. This new wave of moblogs and mobloggers keep network surfers up to date with good and bad eventsissues of importance as they occur all over the world, helping to make internationalcommunication quicker and more accurate. Many individuals feel that the limits of blogging have a lot to do with geographics. After all, there is only socurrent that a blog can be when you want to run home and boot up in order to update it. However, mobile blogging marks the starting of a exciting new era when web-based communication can happen spontaneously from any position. Moblogging devices mean that there is almost nowhere on the planet thatstays off-limits for bloggers. Next part next week.
