So-called Lag issues on our servers
« on: November 05, 2015, 09:49:24 PM »
Hi guys,

since there is a continuous flow of people complaining about lags, I want to point you guys to this:

Besides network related issues there are some well known problems on Windows 7 and above.
These "lag" issues come from the sound driver, specifically how Windows limits network traffic for some multimedia applications.

I noticed the problem on Realtek chipsets (onboard sound), but other chipsets may be problematic as well.

You can check if this is the issue by disabling the card in device manager. If game is working significantly better afterwards you know that
this might help you:

in short:

* Open regedit
* Go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Multimedia\SystemProfile
* There will be an entry for network performance throttling, default value is 10; set it to FFFFFFFF hex (willl look like 0xFFFFFFFF to the right of the entry)
* Reboot

Hope that helps some of you guys.
Server doesnt lag.
