Question

Today I had to weirdest lag problem I ever had.

 

First of all my ping was rather unstable (well, going up from 40ish to 58)

This being when standing still.

 

But here comes the unplayable part:

 

As soon as I start moving the ping went to 160, while fps stable at 125 and I start lagging like crazy (headache as result)

 

 

This happened on nq1, nq2 and to a lesser degree on jay4 (jay4 still 'playable')

So I assumed this isn't a server problem, but a problem at my end (if not I should have post this on tracker, sorry in that case :P)

 

Did a winmtr to nq1:

I would think it was client-sided, im assuming you dont have anything running such as downloads or streaming audio or something? are you sharing your network with friends or family? You can also check your internet speed at http://www.speedtest.net/ and see if it also shows the lag. What i find weird is that you say your ping is 50 standing still and 150 walking. As far as i know movement should only affect FPS, not ping. Could it be that your maxpackets and rate is set wrong in your profile? you can do a /players command while on server and check your settings there and modify them. The wrong rate and packet setting can make you lag even if your connection is good. hope you figure out the problem

Does your ping go up if you stand still, but pan your view around?

Nope, only when moving (especially when double jumping) and fps always stays stable

 

ps.

 

-none of my other games are lagging

-installed new graphics yesterday, but worked fine yesterday

-new install didn't fix problem

 

http://beta.xfire.com/videos/5c9c6c

ignore the fact the fps is low, xfire tanked the fps. It's stable 125 when not recording

Did you do this after checking your rate and maxpackets? I think its very possible that could be the case

all like they should be, never changed (45000 and 100)

what's your value for:

rate

com_maxfps

cl_packetdup

cl_maxpackets

 

antiwarp tries to penalize warping players (not enough if you ask me :P) so if your packets are not steady you may experience lag only when you move.

When you see that transparent thing on your lagometer, that's antiwarp. You should stop moving until it goes away, but if your upload is not stable then it can be triggered all the time.

Is that the very light green area that I sometimes see above the normal green in lagometer?

The same it has been for years now (and I tried playing with default values too, with same effect)

 

com_maxfps is 125 or 76 => both stable

cl_packetdup: whatever the default value is, never changed that AFAIK

cl_maxpackets: 100

 

(max_rate = 45000)

 

Problem seems to only happen on my desktop :s (laptop is lag free)

yes, I don't know if every mod has it, etpro and jaymod for sure. It's made to prevent players from teleporting.

In my opinion he doesn't upload steadily, so when he moves antiwarp gets triggered. Otherwise I don't understand why it happens only when he moves.

 

Since his cvars are ok, I think he should find the cause of the lagging elsewhere, but at the moment I have no idea.

 

@DrJoske:

Do you use wireless, by chance? mtr output seems reasonably normal.

no idea then...

have you noticed if your fps change as well? on the xfire video I can't see, since I guess xfire slows it down. If your fps are high all the time, then it's a network problem.

FPS drops to about 124 XD or stays at 76

 

Network problem I've been looking into from the start.

Still haven't found a thing that's off (considering laptop has no problems)

 

All other games are not lagging, it really is w:et specific.

 

Ah well, the hunt continuous...

 

I am pretty sure you right about that antiwarp (if I check jay4).

No idea how it happened though and only on my desktop which is even weirder.

Could be, but if it was something with my network my laptop should act the same.

 

So will mess around with desktop settings :s

K, found the problem!!!!

 

Remember I said I upgraded my graphics...

Let me tell you I went from AMD to Nvidia.

 

Turns out in the drivers of Nvidia there is something called thread optimalization...

This was turned on, turning this off solved the problem.

 

Sunlight big ty for your help, you mentioning the antiwarp (didn't know about that) made me find the solution on the internet.
