So here's the deal. I purchased Battlefield 2142 and it is a sick game. I'm playing it on another computer of mine (AMD Athlon 2.1GHz, 1GB RAM, 128MB ATI Radeon 9200, XP Pro SP2) and for some reason whenever I play it on this computer, the game loads fast, the menus are all fine, but when I get into the multiplayer game, it takes a good 30 seconds for the menu to load so i can choose my spawn spot. On my sis's IBM ThinkPad, it takes less than 1 and I have no lag. It's the kind of lag where its not stop for a long time, than warping, it's you move once every second and NOTHING is workable at that speed. Honestly, it's quite frustrating because I can't always use my sister's laptop and my main computer (specs in sig) is out of commision (updating hardware, waiting for RMA's on everything :thumbsup:) So I'm stuck with nothing but uber lag. Does anyone have a fix for me?

Note: All settings are turned way down and I have minimal applications running. Also the game is entirely up-to-date.

Regards,
TheYoda

or are you on a 48 west server that's in LA

It's on every server and on single player. It's frustrating :thumbsup:

And also. After I disconnect from the server and look at the history, the latency is in the red when before it was green.

Multiplayer I could say it was ping reltaed, even if its not try resetting your modem etc and emptying out all possible files that you don't need, such as temporary internet files etc

what are you graphic settings etc at, And are they suited for what you have


Note: its been like 2 months since I last posted so bear with me ;p

One question, are you playing the game on a laptop?
You will not like me if I'm angry.

All settings on everything turned down, and no this is on a desktop. I resolved the issue already, it seems my video card didn't cut it for this game. Thanks for your responses :thumbsup:

Fremder: Btw (looking at your sig) Gears of War has to be the sickest game for 360. The graphics are sick and I <3 shotgunning locusts. Apparently none of my other friends had this, but did you get nightmares from the berserker (who apparently is a she)?
