In the old days I saw a lengthy and detailed post (probably written by Deadbolt) about why this command won't help regarding lag, but I'm not able to find it now. I found this old topic, though...:

Anyway, while searching for other stuff over at Novalogic.com, I found an old entry regarding this command in their DF2 knowledgebase, and it says...:

Question:

What is NetDelay? And does it cause LAG?

Answer:

The Netdelay command sets a delay on outgoing commands other than your position information. In theory setting it on your client could give you a disadvantage by making all of your commands go through more slowly.

A serve and play host could use it to give themselves a slight advantage over other players (by setting a high netdelay on the server), but that's about it. Otherwise it doesn't do anything.

Note that it has nothing to do with "lag" which is internet latency, this is just a delay on outgoing commands.
