i have an extremely annoying problem with sto lately:
the game is extremely laggy half the time to the point of being straight out unplayable.
ping to the servers is ok, no packetloss on network layer, my pc (core i7, 12gb ram, 300gb intel ssd, ati hd5850) is definitely fast enough and my connection (35mbit up / 8 mbit down) also is more than adequat.
i have no lag-problems with other games, so i am a bit at a loss to where these issues come from.
I dunno if what I am getting is the same thing, but my fps is always tanking to under 5 (from 40+) randomly while on the ground. My connection is stable, my heat is cool, my ram is slammin, and it doesnt matter what graphics settings I use, pow. Game just goes to balls once every 10 seconds for 1 or 2 seconds.
Feels worse than lag T,..,T
If anyone finds a fix, plz make it well known @,..,@
1. up until about a week ago i could play with the exact same settings flawlessly
2. at no time in the game is the gpu maxed out and the gpu does not even reach 50% usually
since no driver-updates or system-changes took place around the time the problem occured, the most logical conclusion was, that the problem is on server-side. either a bug or a general problem.
but i decided it could not hurt so i have tried at lower resolutions and low settings now anyway - to absolutely no avail. the same rubberbanding and freezes keep happening (while the system itself works fine - switching programs, etc. works flawlessly it is completely constricted to sto)
also i do get a lot of server not responding (but not significantly higher ping and no packet loss (?!) according to the traces even when that happens). twice now i spent several MINUTES on server not responding and entered the fleet-action very very late (once even when it was over) ...
I have the same problem, the game is just unplayable from afternoon til morning (my time zone is GMT+1). This started maybe 3 patch ago as i remember, it stabilized for a few days before the last patch but it's back again. And when i say unplayable it's really is, can't do 2 steab whithout lagging back all time server not responging and other issues, but there is no problem at morning. This is interesting, because lots of peapole from my country not noticing this and it's not my connection since everyting else just working fine.
gmt+1 here too ... maybe a problem located around central europe in some way, possibly a certain line or provider, a faulty backbone-router somewhere? or a problem with an entry-port at sto for europe, this would explain why only a few people are affected ...
anyway it is annoying just quit the game again as it is unplayable for me.
