How to greatly reduce lagging without buying new hardware!

Postby xXLONEWOLF810Xx » Mon Aug 29, 2016 3:19 pm

I was have trouble with lagging on ET and I saw that some others were complaining about it to, especially when there were a lot of people on the server. I can't buy new hardware, so I did so digging, and by doing this stuff on your computer, it reduced my lag a lot! I hope it will help someone else to!

1. Pull up the Start menu, go to "run" , and type in %temp%, this will pull up a folder with some other folders of temporary data or RAM, now you just delete these folders (don't delete anything you think is important). Once you have deleted them to the recycle ben, pull up the recycle ben and delete them.

2. This another temporary memory folder that can be pulled up and deleted to reduce lag and may speed up your computer. Type into run, prefetch, now do like you did with the last one folder, delete them. (Note: what you are deleting is temporary data and really won't matter if you delete it, also you will need to come back and delete new files in the folder every once in a while)

3. This tip may speed up your computer over all, but it may make your computer look like windows 98. Go to control panel, go to system, then go to the advanced tab, now click on the settings button under performance, then click the circle that says "adjust for best performance" and click apply. this should speed up your computer!

I hope this will help others like it has helped me! -LoneWolf810

Just some quick things to do in game.:)

You have to go in the server and following some steps :

- Check your current ping and if possible your current fps
- Open the console and type the following commands :
- /rate 32000
- /pb_sleep 500
- /cl_maxpackets 100
- /r_primitives 2
- /com_maxfps 125
- Check your new ping and new fps and give a try.

Just adding some tips to your post, thx to have shared your experience :P


Edit : well after checking your rate in the server you don't need to search anymore. You are playing with rate 4000 so it's normal if you got a very bad lag and high ping.
To solve it do /rate 32000 ;)

It seems that not because your rate is still 4000 and your ping average 250 but if you like to play like this i don't mind . :P
