I have noticed out on servers several players who just yell about lag but upon investigation i often see that these peoples have antiques. I mean geforce 3 videocards, 256 or 512 mg RAM and in general sucky connections. To those who have antiques: Simply get a new computor, it isnt that expensive now, any grown-up could afford a good computor for FH for around 600-700 euros/dollars. (for example an AMD Barton 2500+, 2*256+1*512mb ram, radeon 9800 pro) To the devs: Plz dont take the "easy" way to satisfy these laggers, plz keep add content for the "real feel". Those who complains had to buy new hardware, nothing else.

Pardon my french, but Fuck You. Some people dont have money falling out of their asses, and cant buy a new computer or hardware just on a whim. Now realize, i dont have a top of the line system, and i do get performance problems occasionally in FH, but i dont complain about it. You are surely an arrogant asshole for posting this.

It isn't just about processing power, the Battlefield 1942 engine also plays a part in it. It simply was not created to accomadate such mods as are coming out years after the initial release of the game. While a faster computer will help some, it isn't the most efficient way of improving gameplay.

Mad Mac: Well, i apologize then but it wasnt directed at you as you dont complain about performance and you are quite young (besides beeing a student) There was absolutely no need for you to react in this way. EDIT: Ensign Riles: Well, i can only tell of my experience, i have good hardware and adsl and i have yet to experience lag. (yes it can very seldom "chop" but when i alt-tab and check its always my connection then who play havoc, not the game itself)

There are sites that will help you tweak your shit into shape. www.tweaktown.com www.readyroom.com www.tomshardware.com all have great guides for making Windows XP work a lot faster. Basic hardware and software tweaks can go a long way if you do a lot of them.

You don't need to buy a new computer, and you shouldn't have to. Just go through the intarnet web and find pages about making things go faster. Read up on it, then do it. Or you can invest like 200$ in a new graphics card or some more ram and get a big jump in preformance that way.

Sorry for overreacting, but could you please just lock/delete this thread? It serves now purpose. Yes, as Akatosh made abundantly clear, a system upgrade would do wonders for most people, and these people know this. Undoubtedly, most people would love to have the system you have, Akatosh, if only they could. Many people have trouble running FH, but the MAJORITY dont come here to complain. Its like telling someone to buy a brand new car because the one they own breaks down on them. They know that they can rely on a new car, but they dont have the means. Common sense.

I have a XP2200, 1GB of RAM, a Radeon 9550, and a 80GB ATA133 HDD, Broadband connection, and Win 2000, and I also have been experiencing lag.

I do wonder Akatosh before you tell everyone to just go out and pop down hundreds of dollars for a new computer did you buy yours? or did mommy and daddy buy it for you?

I ask because anyone adult or young who has to struggle to get ahead and pay bills are not usually the persons to criticize other people about finances and tell others to just cough up the money for something because we know what its like to have to juggle finances to get things we need.

Akatosh"OMG LAG!"? Get a new computor.

I wonder how you would react to the lag that you'll recieve between your face and your brain when I take a baseball bat and put it to your left ear. While it may be more painfull, Im sure you'll feel just as helpless as us "kids" who cant afford expensive computers or upgrades. Hell, maybe if you than sue the baseball bat company on behalf of my actions, youll sratch up enough money to replace half of the bones you would loose if I knew you and did that. Your a fucking ignorant old bastard you know that... How about you buy us all new computers, than you can say "Oh, dont reduce the lag". Asshole. I cant play my favorite map, and several others. Hearing you say this just really makes me want to put that aluminum bat into some good ol' action.
