First of all i see a lot of improvement since the last patches regarding connectivity in lobbies. i can join in a couple of seconds and connect to everyone whos there. so good job on this one !!
but however it seems that since the last patch there is another bug that didnt happen to me before. every game i played today it startet to lag after a minute for like 10 seconds and started again after a minute constantly. the game is unplayable and the other players tell me that i have a huge ping of 1000 and should leave. when i open the score board i see that all players are having 1000+ pings which probably is because of me. i dont think i have encountered this problem before the last patch.
i have read through the forums and found a couple of threads discussing this lag spiking problem, but there was no solution to this. there was also discussed that the proxy servers could be a solution to this, but since these threads were kinda outdated i dont really know if they really had the same problem like me. i tried a wlan optimizer tool (i am on wlan) which was posted in one of those threads, but it didnt help at all.
i just want to make sure stardock is aware of that problem. (maybe they are already trying to fix this) and i really hope there is a way to fix this for us "laggers". the worst would be when this problem would be never adressed and in the end i can never ever play that game online again except over gamerager. also i think that it has to be a problem with the latest patch because i didnt encounter this problem before and i played a lot before.
my pc and setup is definately not the problem (i hope) since i run the game at a simspeed of 7-9. i also opened all ports, no firewall, no anti virus, 2k DSL (21kb/s upload) and wlan. i dont know if my ISP is the problem but i dont have problems with torrents for example. also games over gameranger ware working fine.
please help me(us)
I've made another thread here, explaining my problem in great detail (with pictures and videos). I would appreciate if someone from Stardock would look over and give me some input. I think the videos i've made could be helpful to them...
