et taking 25% cpu

Question

hello guys

 

like usual, ive some problems again

et lagging rly bad, getting up to 800 ping and that 'connection interrupted'

so first i thought it was some background proces that makes me lag but i saw ET is taking over 25% of CPU (ive new pc, i5 core)

any ideas how to fix it?

maybe it has to do with windows 7 ? (its rly shit btw)

 

grtz

25% CPU is fine. Make sure you are not running 2 copies of ET or one is not hanged.

ET is a really CPU intensive game for its age. what about your video card? my laptop has to be set on low settings to play without lag while my pc i have everything maxed the hell out :D

 

Edit : well, maybe its my CPU and GPU combo in laptop, ionno.

2 things:

 

1. Run WinMTR

2. post your lagometer screenshots. I can help more.

You must not know much, because win7 is very good, aswell as i5 CPU (Depending on which model you got)

Also, even if its a new cpu, video card CAN be the problem. It really depends on what video card you got, even if its new.

oh man, now that i think about it, my laptop runs Win7 x64 and i get the hard lag and high ping. never really thought much of it. when it had Win Vista x64 game ran fine with most settings maxed and resolution at 1366x768...now i gotta run with minimum settings @ 800x600 and still lag/ping. is your Win7 x64 or x86? on x64 Vista (my pc) i got all maxed and play great even with a 176 kb/s connection...only problem i have is neighbors net :(

x86 is a part of x64. theres only 32 and 64bit version of OS out.

Problems of lag and ping them every so often I also have because of my connection that is not as it should be!

Especially when we have two PCs connected to the internet I can virtually play (I mean if a PC is on youtube and on I try to play ET)

I phoned my manager or often have access to the system even though I do not believe that much, okay we will see, good or bad I can play! :camper
