Post subject:  multiplayer lag problem, please help

I recently reinstalled WET & TCE, I'm haveing a lag problem, every five seconds like clockwork my screen freeze's, and I notice on the lag o meter that the green is interupted at the time of the freeze, the game plays fine otherwise, my ping is steady, my fps is good, 80-90

This happens on any server I'm on, I play Urban Terror and do not have this problem, just TCE, I have yet to try WET though?

try to disable PB, see if it is gone. this way you can eliminate some possibilities.

Not totally PB problem (should only effect after connecting, then clear). This is hardware/software problem.

Do you have Dual-Core CPU? and What Vid card do you own?

I had same problem but fixed mine by downgrading my drivers. Drivers that were released when you're card was released, are generally better for ET. However, when I first connect to a server, it will still dip for a few minutes, then it will smooth out.

Ok from watching the lag-o-meter, it does happen when I first connect, and smoothes out after a minute or so, plays good for awhile then comes back, now I was getting kicked be PB, but I went to the PB folder, ran the update from there, and I dont get kicked anymore, but I still have the lag problem.

I tried going back to old drivers, no effect.

Under nVidia?

The slower your CPU, the more you will notice. Other software might try and take some process (anti-virus,etc). You might have to try a few sets of drivers.

All else fails, if you have Dual Core, set the affinity every time you run the game (task manager), set it to CPU1 (cpu 0 is most windoze processes).

No it's a Radeon X700, I used to play this game alot, but this lag\freeze sucks, does anyone know what all I can turn off, and leave TCE & my cable connection running?
