I'm getting a lot of lag, even though my ping is below 100. It's not just 1 server, it's every server. Any suggestions?
My system specs: Pentium4 3.0ghz 800mhz fdb Radeon 9700 pro 1024mb's of DDR 3700 samsung ram overclocked to 466mhz sound blaster live! 5.1 120gig maxtor hdd :confused:
When u say every server,what are the size of the servers as far as people go?Many people do not realize just because it's a 64 server does not mean the person who setup the server has enough bandwith to feed everyone.This goes for all sizes of servers.Not all the time is it your hardware the cause for lag,it can be the network congestion as well or even their hardware.You have a strong system and should have no problems with the exception of the SB5.1,I would disable hardware acceleration and lower it to 22khz.Try and mess with the channels as well if you have not done this already.
try playing single player, see if it lags. if not then it's your connection. if you have a router, unplug that router and just run straight into the bf pc.
if it lags in single player, i have no idea why cause that's a blazing system. try turning the audio setting down a notch.
it doesn't lag on sp or servers that i host. It lags on all servers, low amt. of ppl and a high amt. of ppl. I've had the game 4 almost a year and this has never happened b4, it just started happening after i reinstalled it this last time. All other game's work fine, no lag at all, but Ill try turning down the audio quality. By the way is a SB live 5.1 a bad card?
I messed with the channels and turned it down to 22khz but it didn't help, any other suggestions? I'd like to stress that this is the 1st time this has happened.
Any other ideas on y this might b happening? :confused:
Does anybody at all have any ideas as 2 y this is happening? Also the music plays really fast if it helps at all.
