3/4 of the time I seem to have serious lag issues with this. I’ve been playing for a while and it used to be perfectly fine but recently its not. It will lag either slightly or loads in about 3/4 of my games and it just annoys me because then I can;t really enjoy the game due to there pretty much being no point in playing with lag.
However when I am in game it lags and I don;t know how to fix it, does anyone have any ideas on things I can check or things I could do to help sort it out. I can’t play with friends at the moment and it’s pretty frustrating. Any help appreciated.
My speed tests come out around 8-10 ping, 80-90 Download and 5-6 upload.
I didn’t know where to post it, the description for the tech forums wasn’t very clear and general discussion says it’s about anything non directly related to fighting games, which means it’s kind of in the guidelines. However, I shall move it.
Some advice while telling me to move it would have been cool.
And Raz0r… lol, why don’t you go and take your bad attitude back to your boyfriend and resolve whatever he did to make you feel so uptight hun x
By saying that you have just implied yourself that being gay is bad. I called you uptight as an insult. I just naturally assumed you were gay the same as I can naturally assume a person is straight, surely seeing a negative in assuming someone is gay is homophobic in itself. I wouldn’t carry on that behavior if I were you due to a direct quote from you which states “Have you no shame? Don’t you know giving homosexuals a tough time on SRK is a bannable offense?”.
I’d be careful if I were you.
Not to mention that fact that why couldn’t I think you was a woman? Does that also make you sexist too?
from the front page under general discussion it says “General Discussion: Discuss anything you like”. As you will see above, I have discussed an effective way that someone may know of rectifying my PC issue. Indirectly relating to the game. It is not focused on the game, but just one of the many games that the problem is effecting. If you took the time to look at my post you would know it’s about not knowing what to do about lag.
Thanks for actually giving me a response to my original post instead of insulting me also. No it is only online, my computer is getting on now but it can still handle street fighter IV fine. It;s with about 90% of people I’m playing, the odd person in the Netherlands or something will be okay.
I’ll try to help you before this thread gets locked… C’mon people, you know it’s coming.
Have you eliminated your display as a possibility? And does it only happen on SFIV? If so…
Make sure your video drivers are up to date. I know this sounds like a generic response, but I had tearing issues in Ultra SFIV recently which were caused by GTAV optimized beta drivers for AMD cards. A driver update fixed that.
Is it intermittent? As in, does the lag go in and out during matches? If it’s erratic like that, it could be malware on your computer. Had that issue as well, and tried a new malware scanner to find that a bitcoin miner had been installed on my system.
I got some questions for you in order to trouble shoot your issues.
What all you have on your home network? Like every console, Desktop, Lap top, tablet, Smart TV, DVR unit you got.
Are your Gaming PC or Console connected via Wifi or Ethernet?
Is anyone doing heavy duty downloading in your house?
Is your ISP a cable company? Way Cable companies Internet works is there one huge lan connection for the whole neighborhood, so if you live next door to a serious internet pirate/Torrent-user or even the girl next door does sexy web cams for money that can kill your internet speeds.
I’ll take a look and see if my drivers are up to date, I haven’t checked. Yes it’s intermittent I could play 2 matches with a friend fine then all of a sudden it’ll get real bad, then be slightly laggy for ages, then get bad again etc. I’ll check that out too.
It is connected by an Ethernet straight to the router.
It only lags when I am facing others online, training mode/arcade mode is smooth as can be. I updated my graphics drivers last night just in case but still no change. Also changed the channel that my router was running on in case it was getting interference from others in the area but to no avail either.
I am running windows 7 currently. I wouldn’t upgrade to 8 because… obvious reasons haha, and I didn’t want to move to 10 because I figure when an OS gets released there is always problems.
I recently got an Amazon Fire TV stick and the very next day I got it I got the same type of lag you are talking about.
I disconnected the device and powered it off then reset my modem and router. And was able to get the lag to stop.
I also disabled alot of processes that could’ve been using my bandwidth in the background. I added the whole street fighter 4 folder to the exceptions list on windows defender live monitoring function aswell.
Also I don’t understand why you still use windows 7, windows 8.1 performs better… it just lacks the start menu people like. windows 10 brings it back though. Windows 7 can perform bad for games also if you don’t set it up correctly by killing all of the useless shit in it (aero for example)
