    If you connect to someone with a slow connection or a high ping rate, you will encounter these problems. I have a cable connection with 4000+ Mbit/sec, but I still get the same problem when I connect to a slow server.

    Check for low pings.

    I'd say something is very messed up. First, make sure you have the latest UT patch, version 436 I believe. Also make sure all video drivers and sound drivers are up to date. Next thing you might want to try is defrag, and some of the other "integrated system tools" like Disk Cleanup. Now for your 3 letters...

    A) As the previous poster stated, the delay on multiplayer is due to servers with bad ping times. Always go for the double digit pingers and if you must, maybe a low triple digit (like 200 or less).

    B) The problem changing resolution and color depth probably is contributed by either a low-end video card or dated drivers. Update everything.

    C) I'm not quite sure about this one. After you exit next time, go into Task Monitor and see if the CPU is running at 100%. If it is then that means its taking a hella long time to shut the game down.

    Good luck.
