    Anyone else getting a 'quick lag'?

    Post by Tiberius on Sat Sep 20, 2008 6:23 am

    I know that question probably sounds funny. The game runs great with one small exception. Every minute or two I get a game freeze for about a second. Almost like a 'hic-up' if you will, where the screen freezes and a second later everything is normal.

    This happens if I'm somewhere solo or around a lot of people so I know it's not related to that. It pretty much seems to happen every few minutes on average. I'm wondering if there's some sort of hardware conflict going on. Any tech guru's in our guild that can help?

    Thanks! Very Happy

    I've had that kind of thing happen, but not often enough to pay it much notice. Certainly I get a pretty heavy lag when I cross between zones in a tier (so there's no loading screen), which is presumably from loading data and doing memory management.

    are you running in vista under a wireless network? If so, it is a "feature" of vista where it is doing a search for other networks (happens about every minute or so). I had the same exact thing (and so did thousands of other people) and the worse thing is that there's no way to turn this "feature" off within vista.

    But what you CAN do is download a program to stop it from happening.

    http://www.martin-majowski.de/wlanoptimizer/downloads.php <--- go there, download the program, and have it running in the backround while you play.

    Just as an update... I have fixed the 'hicup' problem. I checked everything I could for updates (Video, sound, directX, etc). It ended up being my sound card of all things. I have a top of the line sound card but it apparently had 3 critical updates. After updating the sound card I logged back into WAR and no more hicups! Woot!

    Thought I would put that here as it is not something I would have expected to cause a video issue. If anyone else has or gets the 'hicup' issue, updates are most likely the issue.
