    Hello, i was just wondering if anyone knew how mine craft determined how many bars a server gets when it pings it in the server list.

    what i'm thinking
    >150ms = 5 bars
    >300ms = 4 bars
    >400ms = 3 bars
    >1000ms = 2 bars
    <1001ms = 1 bar

    If anyone could help me find the exact amounts, the help will be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks, Jake

    oh hey, you're that guy with the face.

    one moment, i'll find the numbers for ya

    Ok I just wasted like 30 minutes of my life figuring these out for you :D

    >= 1000 = 1 bar
    < 1000 = 2 bars
    < 600 = 3 bars
    < 300 = 4 bars
    < 150 = 5 bars
    < 0/not connected = red X

    first i figured out how you decompile minecraft, then did so
    then i looked for the file where it displays the bars
    then i tried to make sense of the code for like 10 minutes
    then i finally realized what var8 meant (its the position of the bar image on the icons.png spritesheet)
    so then i mapped the numbers to the index on the spritesheet and discovered these

    yaaaaaay. its times like these when i feel like a badass.
