    I never see it. I think the best way to fix this type of issue is to get more memory...I'd highly recommend 2 Gigs.

      not often... but usually when I do everyone else is having it too and the server crashes shortly after. I've only seen this 2 times and it was on Kashan.

        I have a fairly low-end system and I don't outright lock up and crash. Some rubber-banding and lag on the Chinese jungle-and-grass maps, but playing at lowest settings makes it better.

          I generally crash out, strangely enough, about an hour and a half into every scrim we play. No kidding. Scrims only. Generally fine the rest of the time.

          Opty 165, 2 gig good ram, ATI 1950pro. All water-cooled.

          The 2G ram advice is the best single and cheapest possible fix.

          There's so many variables. Hit up the hardware section before buying stuff; I'm sure there's lots of guys that'll talk about good stuff to buy. I'm one of 'em.

            Sometimes I get massive FPS drops. (from 50 to 0.1 or so) out of nowhere.
            I have a 512mb nVidia 7600 vid card, 2 gigs of ram, 2.4 ghz AMD 64 processor, and about half my hard drive is free. (100 of 180GB)

              I can't tell you my System specs off by heart, but I often get freezes and connection loss just as I round a crner and see a squad of enemies looking the other way. Something to do with 'easy kills=connection loss' I think...

              Oh, but I do have 2 gigs ram.

                I bumped my dual core 2.8GHZ pc to 3.5GB of RAM to make it play correctly. I also installed an NVIDIA 6800 video card to take care of memory on the video side. I think the RAM is the most important for good play and the video memory allows you to up the graphics settings to see more detail. Ping is important for reaction time and lag, but shouldn't send you to the desktop if you have poor ping.

                  I've got a decent System and I play on the highest settings with absolutely no lag or rubber banding at all. I used to have 1 GB though, and I couldn't even play on medium/high settings on vanilla, so memory is definitely the key.

                  Pentium D 3.2 ghz
                  3 GB's ram
                  Geforce 7900GT
                  Plenty of HD space

                  I didn't join a squad once and this guy named Nardini took me into the back room and beat me with a sock of oranges.

                    I've got descent comp but I experience a huge FPS drop in some grass areas of Qwai (80 to 15 fps)
                    I never froze in game but I sometimes crash to desktop, it's very rare tho

                      Going to 2 gigs ram made the difference for me. Kinda like Warehouse said if I see issues, usually the server crashes soon after.

                        Re: You guys with the good computers

                        I used to have the following...

                        AMD 64 3200 2.0 gHz, 7300 GT (Actually a solid card for the price I paid, 79.99 in August 2006.), and 1 GB of ram

                        I got stuttering on big maps, slow load times, but medium all and no problems. Couldnt fly reliably.

                        Now...I upgraded...

                        AMD 64X2 4200+ , 8600GTS, 2 gbs of ram. I havent tried all high, I could do it, but I prefer blazing speed compared to looks. On medium PR is a impressive game, all things considering it's a 2005 engine.

                          I have an AMD 3200+, 2x512 of OCZ PC3700, 9800Pro...! So my comp is pretty old... I play everything at low and only [email protected] (damn this suxxx!! :P).... The only lag I got is in the beginning of the map (to load the ram) and sometime in the game when alot of action is going on!

                          But in general, I think it play well! Even I don't have 2gb... but I know I should buy a stick of 1gig.....!!!

                            wow, my computer is 5 years old and its all stock, Summer 2003 Dell XPS P4 2.8, 2gb ddr pc3200, ATI Radeon 9800 pro 128 mb. I play on all medium, except I bumped up the resolution to 1280 x 1024. That just shows you how great the 9800 was and still is. Nothings overclocked!!!!! it plays great with no problems on pretty much all servers

                              Hgl, I used to play on a 9800pro and it will do medium settings if you add more memory I think.



                              If you want high settings then 3gb is about the right amount, 2gb will still lag unless you have a 1gb video card.


                              You wont be completely clear of loading lag till you have toured the entire map at least once. This only matters alot when travelling at high speed in aircraft, its not a massive deal when on foot unless you've just turned the corner and met a squad of course! :o


                              If you find yourself in a fair fight, then you have obviously failed to plan properly.
