@GS I.e. you can tell anything online, without proper proof no one knows if its the truth. Same with pingtests that don't clearly proof its yours.

@wardyb1 yes, he can check the FPS too, true, during fights then and not just in the first minutes of the game. However, then you know IF its wrong, I also like to find out where the cause is so you know what needs fix, which is where the task manager or another external program could help.

With a connection like that, likely the problem is someone else using it at the same time. Explains the random spikes.

Unfortunately having good components is no guarantee for games to run smoothly..

I've had game stuttering last two weeks, even though i'm running aoe with intel i7-6700 cpu and geforce gtx950 (which should be more than enough for aoe).

It turned out that the drivers for my intel graphics were from 2k16 :/ And this was even despite having tried to update them several times.

The problem in my case was that if I let Windows search for driver updates (for example by going to Device Manager --> Update Drivers) it would automatically install the 2k16 drivers, as if these were the newest ones.

So i had to find the latest drivers on my own and install them manually to get rid of my stuttering. What's really retarded is that if i try to update them now from the Device Manager, it actually gets rid of the 2k18 drivers and installs the 2k16 ones again :shock: Microsoft Windows at it's finest :hehe:

Ye Veni, I really want to improve that.
Atm i'm working but i will try to do different speed test and monitoring my PC during a game this evening.
I will post results here.
I can also share my UI if someone other than Mitoe want to test if this can cause lag.
Furthermore , I have a edited hotkey file ( defaultkeymapY.xml) , where I added a dozen of hotkeys.

About my connection, i m the only one using it (i use CPL) . My wifi is disabled, so only my PC is using internet, I'm sure of that.

tournament 1: umeu wins against kynesie then kynesie OOS'es the game and umeu quits. Don't start lying now, or start spreading falsehoods.

My version: tournament 1: umeu is doing well, but kynesie lags very badly so umeu loses his falcs because of it, now both players have chances but then MCJim leaves the game causing it to oos.

Old drivers should be fine and 2016 is not even old. Most recent drivers just add little improvements for new games.
Be sure the game is running on your gpu and there is nothing overheating.

Umeu being up 1-0 anyways, kynesie having already used his japan which is the only civ he wins with on land maps. Iirc he would have to win every water map and then win a land map with japan once, while also facing counter picks. Umeu came close to contesting kynesie water on a first pick and was honestly winning the game or at least even. The water boom's effect had worn off, at which point you'd expect a player like umeu to outplay kynesie, were it not that it was conveniently lagging like shit.

Lol that was spot on, thanks Garja. I downloaded a temperature monitor after reading your answer and one of my CPU cores was at about 80°C :ohmy: So i took my laptop apart and cleaned the fans with compressed air, and now it's down at around 50°C :smile:
If anyone's interested, this is what the dusty fans looked like:

Which reminds me of my old stationary computer, that randomly would restart itself in the middle of games because of overheating. This is what the CPU of that computer looked like when i took it apart :grin: That pc actually lasted for another two years just by removing that pile of dust xD

If you have time you might as well change the thermal compound on the gpu and cpu. That makes a big difference too in laptops.

Lol how can you lag like shit with those specs.
Net isn't great but should be enough. Ping vs europe is decent, actually 15ms better than what I get to Paris, Amsterdam or Frankfurt. Just be sure it's consistent since the bandwidht is low and anything like youtube video or so can make it lag.
Be sure game is run on gpu and remove all shittiee mods.

Should try it for more than 1 game, like when its start to lag and then see if there is a difference.
And maybe without any mod? :chinese:
I know its not so easy, i played for years with zoom mode :blush:

the lag has probably nothing to do with his computer since it was similar years ago when I was playing and he apparently changed it in 2017. I would guess it's either his internet or the mods

Thats true.i lag since a lot of time, and i used multiple comp and multiple connection. ui mod or personnal hotkey can cause lag ? As i said, i can share it if someone want to test

Maybe you remove it and test it... make a copy from it and try it.

Just imagine everyone would try it and lag then :shock:

Are you sure game is being run on your gpu?

Also go here and get that tool. Run it on some reliable server (google or similar) adn check if ping is stable.
