Lag on most servers (little bit of lag on all)

Question

I just came back to E.T a little week back and noticed alot of lag even though i´ve tried to use the PK cleaner thingy and trying to adjust setting (minimal improvements)

-Did you tried to force disabling vsync on your AMD card?

in case you ignore how to procede:

 

-Increase the hunkmegs and soundmegs in adding these cvars in the path of your shorcut of game like this:

post-7251-0-21801400-1399141772_thumb.png"C:\Program Files (x86)\Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory\et.exe" +set com_hunkmegs 320 +set com_soundmegs 128 +set com_zonemegs 64

once this line added in your shortcut, type these commands again in game like this:

\com_hunkmegs 320

\com_soundmegs 128

\com_zonemegs 64

\vid_restart

 

-here is a sample of my cfg with the most important settings to improve the fps and get rid of lags if you want:

Annibal.cfg

(\r_primitives 2 added at the cfg for you)

 

So any of you have a fix for FPS issues? becuase it´s quite anoying to lag in one place and not another.

If needed I will send you a tuto via pm I made for some people here. No promise of success, but in all case it helped most of them to fix their prob of connection or lack of fps.

"lagometer" is built into ET.  Enter in console /cg_lagometer 1, and the moving-graph will appear on the right side of you screen as you play.

 

The pings shown in your TrackBase record are reasonable.  Some FA servers are in the USA and some are in Europe.

in this case then you may want to set Hunk megs to higher.

 

Do this with /Com_hunkmegs 256 or try 512 if you're still having lag.

 

You can also try a lower graphic settings if your on an older Pc.

You say that you get around 90-100 consistently? That seems low for your specs, its similar to my pc and I can hold 333fps constant, are you sure your graphic drivers etc are all up to date, and that the game is running not running on only a single core?

Supposedly, ET can only run on one core. I have watched the Task Manager core-usage graphs while my ET was spectating a player, and it seems to use most of one core-thread, while other tasks use small amounts of the other cores/threads.

 

BTW, when I installed Win 7 Pro on this home-built new machine, NO pagefile was created! ET would act oddly at times. :)

Sounds like your pc is having more issue than just lagging on ET?

yeah but it seems that the update i found for my graphics card got rid of that black screen problem i´ve had but had no effect on ET. :C still having 10-100 fps depending og areas and as i said above it doesn´t matter if it´s a big area or a little room only fitting 1 person. so i have really no idea what is going on. it´s such a weird problem..

Wolfenstein only uses 1 core, even on multi core machines. I have a dual core machine, AMD Athalon 2 x2 250 processor 3.00GHz. The game will only utilize 1.50GHz. Kind of blows, that's life.
