Does anyone know what some of the settings do? Mostly in multi player.

Like what Sync Level and Delay Time do. I noticed changing at least one of them helps deal with lag, but I'm not sure which one. Also, I know mirror moon just translated the game, but does anyone know if there's a way to get suggestions to creator?

Bump! I too wish there was more info on the server settings. My friends and I (we live close by) are getting epic lag while trying interception mode (it keeps synching and desynching...)...and we all have fairly good computers with decent video cards (other games like Dawn of War or Crysis lags less...). Even playing survival is laggy, albeit not as bad as synching and desynching (at least we can PLAY).

What is synch level? Delay time?? hm..

I don't know about the sync time, but delay time is how long it takes the mechs to respond to your controls.
the lower the delay time, the faster the mechs respond to your keypush.
At high delay times, the mechs move like half a second after you push the buttons, but the graphics will be much smoother.
But at low delay time, the graphics could skip a lot.
It's really a tradeoff.

YSK (the producer) recommends delay time of around 5 on low pings, and 10+ on higher pings.
