Hi, i'm having a very weird problem with my connection, while playing UrT.

I have stable ping and 0 packet lost when playing in Jump servers (no matter is the server is in europe or in South america or how many people playing there)

But when i want to play in a "shots" server no matter if CTF, TS or Bomb, my ping becomes crazy and i start to lose packets (it's impossible to play) screenshot:

I cleaned all startup programs with the msconfig, i closed all connections not important to UrT with "PC tools firewall plus", and nothing has changed.

I really don't have a clue what can be happening, i recently upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7, i am using the same ISP i was using before, and the same config i was using before (cl_maxpackets 42, rate 25000)) both wich always did fine.

Any help or idea of what can be happening to me?

it could be a few things:

1) probably the server has a bad connection

2) you have a bad connection to that particular server or a specific country (outages in the country local to the server could cause you problems but another person may experience nothing)

3) your current setup cant handle numerous players firing guns and throwing nades etc (great networking usage and more cpu performance required).



possible things to check:

first off DELETE ALL - DEMOS, SCREENSHOTS, and CUSTOM MAPS from the game directory (back them up to a different folder if need be for now)
it may sound weird but this is actually what causes me issues with my game and FPS once I start to have more than a few maps i get crazy FPS and its repeatable too so I know their seems to be a link to number of maps/files and performance.

Windows 7 networking differs from XP: make sure your using a network cable not wireless for tests.

try a different DNS provider from your ISP: OpenDNS is a good one : 208.67.220.220 and 208.67.222.222

trying backing up your config and removing it to start with a fresh one on windows 7

run speedtest.net and pingtest.net to servers in the country the servers are located. for example if the server you play on is a USA server then a pingtest to UK will provide different results.

Test other servers from other countries: you can try connecting to mine - its dedicated and not home served so should have reliable connection based in the uk: /connect lilpwny.com

try other max_packet and rate settings - perhaps your internet cant handle these settings or ammount of updates from say 32 player server

try a server with less players? is the problem less intense?

try lowering graphics detail to see if this helps?


... just a few things I would try if i had the issue.

NITRO thanks for your help, i did all things you say, there was not any problem with the game..., it was the SO.

I'm not a computer man and i don't know how, but win7 is shit..., i came back to Win XP and UrT is doing again all fine as always.
