The Lag!

Postby Javaguy » 16 Nov 2011, 21:11

Uh, so, yeah. Not sure what happened there. Really sorry I took you out in race 1, Rumbly. :cry: It really was just unplayable. Race 2 started out fine, lag wise, but then everything went crazy and I spent ages letting people through before I realised there was clearly no countdown timer and I was making everyone wait.

I don't think BT internet is cut out for Forza 4 >.>

Also I couldn't hear any voice chat as it stuttered and crackled and popped so for all I know you either all hate me, or there actually was no lag at all from your point of view. I saved a replay of the second race though, from my perspective! Hence wanting to stay the full distance, which was a mistake, I think.

No worries Java, it wasn't your fault. Its something that seems to be happening a little more often with the bigger grids we're running these days.

Post here for help getting those lag issues sorted out. There are things that can help/fix the problem.

I was just glad to see you back on the grid again, feels like a long, long time. ;)

Things happen... you were not the only one lagging, I counted 4 people from my connection. What was interesting to me was 3 of you moved from side to side and one was either jumping up and down or floating well above the track (flew right over me one time).

It is what it is hopefully you will get it all sorted out.

Might be worth you guys testing with no mics. Annoying but lag seems to be an omnipresent feature at the moment.

Javaguy was lagging slightly, Flobadob was all over the place and his microphone chat was an audio blur. Unfortunately this put paid to my first race in a colossal lag attack which I've taken a video of and will upload to youtube later on.

Everyone else seemed fine from where I was sitting, including our friends across the waters in Sweden and Canada.

There was lag even with no mics for one driver (Java I think).

Yeah I think the bandwidth is shared though? Wouldn't make much of a difference if one didn't.

Aside from the fact that we really really do like everyone to have a working microphone and use it. In fact it's a club rule.

If you're lagging majorly, I'd rather you were lagging and trying to communicate where you actually are, than lagging and being completely silent.

Ok, fair enough. Just saying because that is one thing they are reducing in the F1 patch in order to reduce lag. I know nothing!
