Apache de Lagger

Lag, lag, lag...

Question

A month ago my old computer crashed...it was about 10 years old and had pathetic configuration but it was perfect for ET.
Now I bought new one...8Gb RAM, 3.2 processor, Radeon...I can play new games with no problems...but ET is ET...

...and on this computer it sucks. It keeps lagging no mater what I do. Connection is perfect...
I tried all in-game commands that I found on this forum...nothing...

Could it be...I had different version before, now I have that 2.6 from this site.
It doesnt hurt to mention that in "options" - connection type - it automatically goes "unselected" when I try to make it "modem"...

You should have 2.6b and not 2.6. If you downloaded from here it would be 2.6b and that's what you want. 

 

When you say lag, do you get less FPS or you warp?

With an AMD-Radeon graphics card, you may need to do /r_primitives 2 in console.  I had to do that when I updated my drivers.

 

Credit to whomever first mentioned that on these forums.   :)

Crap...I downloaded few versions...I guess this is the wrong one...

It lags...well, if there is some big action on server I see something like 2 pictures per second...when I am alone on server with bots it lags like fuel dump on really busy day :/

Ill instail the right version and try that primitives thingy too, hope it helps :P

2.6b version is installed now...its better, I can actually play...ping is around 200...but its still too laggy. I wrote maxpackets 100, prrimitivec 2, and rate 250000 commands in console. My connection type still goes form "modem" to "unselected".

Do you have an extra zero in the "250000"?  It should be about 25000.  The FA server may set it at 34000 when you play, which should be better.

 

Did you you have in console "prrimitivec 2" or "/r_primitives 2" ?  If you misspell a cvar, ET will just create a cvar by that name, which ET will then do nothing with.   :)

 

The connection type changing from "modem" to "unselected" is normal if you use a custom rate.  You don't want "modem" which means /rate 5000, for a 56k dialup modem or maybe ISDN.

Keep it auto. It's good. 25000 is low. unselect is fine.

In the field "Host" you type the address of server to test connection. for example you put the address of F|A Recruiting server: 8.9.4.227:27960 but without the last 5 numbers (port), so type only this: 8.9.4.227 in the field called "Host" and press Enter
