JTL lag problems

Archived from groups: alt.games.starwarsgalaxies (More info?)

Since JTL, lag is an overwhelming problem.
The game ran perfect before the expansion and
now is horrific.

Does anyone know if the techs are going to
improve the game performance or if it is up
to us, their customers who are already paying
for the service, to spend $300-$400 to upgrade
our video cards and memory to compensate
for the lag problems?

    lag is defined as a network slowdown. Upgrading video doesn't affect
    that. Game performance can usually be improved by tweaking game settings.

    Somewhere along the line people started to call game performance, loss of
    frame rates, choppiness, LAG. I had always seen lag as being packet loss or
    sudden high ping, due to network performance. But as I say, using the term
    "lag" to describe low frame rates is now very common. It used to bug me &
    I would try to correct people but I got no where & finally I have come to
    accept it & have even caught myself using the same term in that context.

    To the original poster, yea I noticed some performance hits since JTL. Do
    not know if SOE is planning to address it or not. Chances are you either
    buy the new video card or lower your display quality settings. You could
    try the lower settings for a while & wait for the next "publish" & see if
    they address it.

    unless hes refering to lag as typing hello in spatial with a 100 ms ping and
    taking 3 seconds for it to show up in spatial, or 10 seconds for a vendors
    item screen to display when you refresh it, or a good 5 seconds between
    clicking attack and finally starting to attack a target, or having to add
    3-4 seconds per pause in a crafting macro going from using it on correllia
    to dantooine. theres also a limit to how much improvement all the tweaking
    can do if the code its trying to run is poorly optimized or extremely borked
    and it currently is with the random runtime ctds since 11/7

    Same deal here, Doesn't seem to be actual network *lag* in the true
    sense of the word but theres definetly a slow down since JTL. Maybe
    they added more textures or changed the lighting or shadows. Anyway I
    improved things a little on my system by turning down character detail
    all the way to 0. Shame everyone looks awful now :/
