Any way to connect to different server to reduce high ping?
I was looking into trying out the GMS extension and was impressed!
Thanks for making this extension and after trying out a tutorial, I've noticed something...
The ping that I'm getting is ~170ms with a test GM 8.0 project. The project is just a square sprite moving around with some drawn text to the screen.
When I'm pinging to google.com, I get a ~20ms ping.
When I ping to gamemakerserver.com, I do get ~170ms ping.
(I believe that this is the case because it's pinging to Germany and I reside in the US.)
Is there a way I can reduce the ping to an average of ~50ms?
--Is there a way to connect to a different server than just what the GMS extension connects to while still using the extension?
--Does gms_connect() accept an argument to connect to a different server or merely connects to GMS?
I'd pay for this to continue using the extension if there's a way to connect to a different server than just the server that GMS connects to...
Thanks in advance,
