How do I make the speed of online games in WA to go faster than how it is now (If you want to know how bad it is lets play a game). I have my graphics turned down all the way and the speed still gives me nightmares. I even have high speed internet. The other problem is that I cant play a game with my friend that lives nearby. It gives the host not found message when either of us try to play in each others games. The other stupid thing is that we both have xbox live and cant play together on that either. Xbox live gives us cannot connect to game sorry. I would really like to know what in His name is going on here. We both can play other people on both of them but not together.:wtf:Any ideas?
It does not matter what your internet speed is. If you have your graphics turned to the lowest and you still lag horribly you have an very shitty computer.
Also do any one of you have a router? Because that may cause problems.
Yes I have a router but it was a little worse before. My computer is a windows XP with SP 2 pentium 4 and regular dell stock cards (graphics cards video cards...).
Try disconnecting your router and see if you can connect to your friend then.
Ill try to play when he gets home but should I try both on xbox live and on dow?

Some routers are known to cause problems with NAT (Network Address Translation) issues and online games.
As for the game playing slowly - is it just online, or is it single player too? And does your computer actually meet minimum spec, or are we talking unbranded grahpics card when you say "stock Dell"?
Its slow only when its online. And when I say stock I mean nothing like GeForce or Nvidia. Stuff like that.

If it's only slow online then either it's your opponent with their settings too high for their computer (because DoW synchs every frame/action to stop people cheating) or it's some delay caused by the router and the NAT issue that's stopping you and your friend playing.
As for the cards not being nVidia or ATi, there's a possibility that it might just be that the game can't handle the larger online games.
Anyway, your best bet is to go to the actual 'official' tech support forums over at Relic News (http://forums.relicnews.com/forumdisplay.php?f=131). Have a search around and post a new thread if nothing answers your question.
Ive been posting on the relic forums at the same time as this one. I was just playing another relic game for the 360 called the outfit and I noticed the speed for that game is horrible too. It runs so slow it makes my speed in WA seem like its going 1000 miles per hour. Im getting tired of being kicked out of every game I play. Like 7 games Ive been kicked out of so far. I can play steel legion mod all the way through just fine but when I play regular WA it lags horribly at the beggining. What can I do about this?
Give it up and dont play?
