  • Latency issue

    I dunno if i'm asking in the right place but um I was wondering if i could get help or advice on what to do about this... I just bought Call of Duty 2 for pc a couple days ago. And once installed I tried playing it and would lag badly from 200-900 ping at times and it still does it. I thought my connection was just bad at that moment. But i put in a different games and my connection was perfect playing them. And everything else i tried doing my ping was good and fast. Is there something wrong or i need to do?

    If this helps my to answer my specs for my comp are:
    250 gb hd
    2 gigs of ram
    nVIDIA GeForce 6100 GPU
    AMD Athlon 64 x2 Processor 3800+

    hey need welcome to the last place you will ever play games. My first question for you is are you useing Directx 9 or 7. if oyu are useing 9 change it to direct x 7. That might fix it, if not let us know


    and welcome to tg

      Hmm, well it could be a couple things. If it's just one game on the machine, and on every server you play with in that game, I'd be inclined to say you've got some video/audio settings in that game that your system doesn't like.

      So, first thing I'd test would be to scale back the video settings a bit and see if it helps at all.

      If it's just one game server that you're having problems on, it could be that you just have a bad route to that server. You can try a tracert (open run, type command, and in your command prompt enter tracert Server-IP-address, ie: tracert 564.02.8.42.

      That will list out the number of connections you have to go through to get to the location you are pinging. If you have to go through 20-30 locations, or the latency numbers next to one or more skyrocket, there is very little you can do to fix it, I'm afraid.
