I got a question why my ping time in bf vietnam is high(143) compared to my ping time in bf (43). I don't know why this is happening.:confused: Can someone tell me why this is happening. And in bf i can put the graphics to it max and noting happens but in vietnam i have to put it to the lowest stetting they have because so i don't see the black lines. I hate putting the garphics to its lowest seting becasue i see everything blury and I have to see everything in detail. :bawl: Can sometell me what's happening there and what i can do? :confused:

Welll let's start with this: They are not the same game. Comparing BF1942 to BFV is like comparing the Sopwith Camel to the A10 Tank Killer. True, though the Camel was great in its day, the A10 does not function the same and thus cannot use the Camel as a benchmark. ENGINE The very core of the game, as similar as they may appear, is completely different. There are many more complicated processes that string together to make BFV work - processes that were not present under BF1942, such as the foliage generator, a much higher poly-count for all models (player, vehicle, terrain). All of these completely hose down your system when running BFV, and must be taken into consideration on why the game must be run at a lower setting. NET CODE Though many refuse to believe this fact, BFV is still a rather young game. The time just has not been spent on tweaking all the problems to a tolerable level. DICE has already issued a patch that was supposed to help decongest the net code - the coding that streamlines the data to allow for smoother online play - but it seems it just hasn't arrived at a decent level... yet. I can run BF1942 (and even FH) with all the graphics settings as high as they allow and suffer no issues except when I am on a crap server. I have to run BFV with a hodgepodge of odd settings, ranging from high in some fields, low in others, and some options just nixed out all together. The only way for me to fix my problems with BFV is to get a better video card, better processor, and maybe better RAM (and a little more of it at that). When it comes to a high ping there are several things to look into: - Running any useless but process-consuming programs in the background? - Connection service experincing some sort of hiccough? - Secure connection made/cable plugged in securely to machine and source? - Other systems connected to the service from the same location? - Aforementioned graphics settings need to be adjusted? - Sound settings need to be adjusted? - Drivers (sound/graphics/peripherals) out of date? It's difficult to pinpoint a problem when you are unsure on even the possibl;e source. Check out these few things and when you can safely dismiss a few you'll have a better idea as to where the problem really exists.

Padre when I am on a crap server.
And that is the majority of the lag with these home cable/dsl servers, trying to force a apple thru a straw. :bouncy:
