20-60 Game Delay
« on: April 01, 2013, 12:10:45 PM »
So, this just started happening on Sunday and continues to happen. I login to PoTM and every now and then get a delay in the game, like I'm lagging and then everything catches up. It's almost got my PC killed once because of it, but I don't know how to fix it. I've tried restarting my computer AND my router/modem but still it happens. We didn't have this issue a few days ago, so are uncertain what started it and  how to stop it.

The delay lasts usually anywhere between 20 seconds to a full minute. It happens with both mine and my husbands gaming, and we have different ports set up. Here's what I'd done thus far:

Ccleaned my system, cleaned out cookies, restarted modem/router, restarted computers, closed out additional programs running that aren't needed.

If anyone has any ideas, I'd be eternally grateful.

Turn off your antivirus! And turn off your firewall!

Also, give me your IP address, that should help.

All joking aside...

Is this a server side issue then? Or an issue on our ends? If I'm not the only one getting this, I figure maybe I should ask, because like Lotte, mine only started couple days ago.

I've been instakilled by what I like to call the lag-hips anal probe effect twice in the last day. Server might need a reset.

In game now, and I've had one huge Lag Spike and almost died to a Deep Forest Wolf..

Now, am travelling and I get like one minute of normal game time, and Freeze Spikes the rest of the time.. making it very difficult to interact, as I freeze, and then am jumping about to catch up with those I'm with that are already way ahead of me. Can we please please get a reset?

Any of you installed the hak that Soren suggesteD?
The one that seems to cost less in frames.
Since i downloaded it, and i started to have some strange lagg spikes too, allthough none that last that long as you describe them.

It's gone since the reset. Am thinking the server was taxed, cause I've not had any spikes since the crash and then the reset.
