OK. I am running a computer with far more than the nessecary or even reccomended specs, and have a cable modem that is currently running at a d-load speed of 5000kbps and upload of 768kbps. During the previous virsions of bf-2 my game ran flawlessly.
Now, however, my game stutters at the most inopportune times. The people around me seem to shutter accross the screen and I will have Connection Problems every few minutes. Sometimes I will fire at someone only to blink and be facing the wrong way! Is anyone else experiencing this? How have you fixed it?
PS. Windows firewall is down and I am portforwarding on my router.
Yes I get this with a 2.5 down and 768 up. BF2 the Laggiest game ever.
My personal experience over the past week is that 1.03 runs great. I've played in numerous full 64 player ranked servers without even a hint of lag. If it matters, I play on a 4mb cable connection.
BF2 had lag issues back when it was released, but it seems to run pretty good now.
Your lag issue may be something else, and just be a coincidence that you had just patched it.
No, this is definitely not a coincidence. I was playing the game before the patch with no problems for hours and hours. The patch did screw it up. Any ideas?
You might try a fresh install of BF2 as well as re-downloading the patch from a different source. Otherwise, I'm stumped as to what is causing your lag.
It's not a coincidence.. Ever since 1.3, the servers that use to have a ping of 50 or so are now over 200. I can't get any servers to show up with a ping lower than 180. I doubt it's my connection since this happened when I installed 1.3. I haven't noticed a difference with web pages or downloads.
