Black Ops laggy as hell in multiplayer

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi guys!

I got black ops lilke last year when it came out. It was laggy as hell in multiplayer and i assumed that it could be the programming in the game itself. It did all the necessary tweaks, opened up the ports and everything, and it is still laggy as hell. I even lowered down the graphics to make it look like some cheap free FPS shooter. It did improve it a little, but still laggy. Tried it again last week, same problem.

I can almost max out the graphics in single player or zombie mode. My rig details are listed below. Is it a limitation of my rig(my CPU and RAM bottlenecking) or is it the game itself? I can run MW2 on full, which has MUCH better graphics on in high gfx settigns.

I'm seeing your CPU as a potential bottleneck. What are your clocks?

From Steam forums...

Quote:
I have been scouring the internet for tips on how to improve the game for those of you with less fortunate computers. Try these in your mp config file, but make sure you make a backup of the file first, just in case you ♥♥♥♥ it up!!!

Default location of the file on a 64 bit system is: "C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Steam\\steamapps\\common\\call of duty black ops\\players\\config_mp.cfg"
For 32 bit it is: "C:\\Program Files\\Steam\\steamapps\\common\\call of duty black ops\\players\\config_mp.cfg"

Use a text editor to edit the file. Some good free ones are Notepad++ and Notetab.


seta cg_blood "0" <- default 1. Turns off blood splatter.

seta cg_brass "0" <- default 1. Turns off the empty shells from your guns.

seta cg_chatTime "60000" <- will do NOTHING to improve your game, but it will keep the chat on screen for 60 seconds, so there is plenty of time to read when you are dead. Could also be set to 0 to disable ingame chat.

seta cg_drawFPS "Simple" <- This is just so you can see your FPS if you don't use xfire or fraps instead.

seta cg_fov_default "80" <- default 65. This will give you a wider view on screen, but might also use a little more fps. But still very usefull.

seta cl_maxpackets "100" <- default 30. Will increase packets sent to server and might give more smooth gameplay.

seta drawLagometer "1" <- default 0. Will show lagometer so you can see if the server is lagging or has high ping.

seta r_aspectRatio "wide 16:9" Gives you a little wider view if you have a 16:10 monitor (widescreen monitor).

seta r_blur_allowed "0" <- default 1. Removes blur on zoom.

seta r_distortion "0" <- default 1. Removes heat and explosives distortions.

seta r_dof_enable "0" <- default 1. Removes the very annoying Depth of Field effect. Highly recommended.

seta r_gfxopt_dynamic_foliage "0" <- default 1. I have not tested this one, but think it removes tree and grass movement. (I was told it is not a good idea to change this. Take a lookie here)

seta r_gfxopt_water_simulation "0" <- same as above, but removes water animation.

seta r_glow_allowed "0" <- default 1. Should remove glow.

seta r_multiGpu "0" <- default 1. Set to 1 if your graphiccard have 2 cores or you run SLI or Crossfire.

seta r_multithreaded_device "1" default 0. Set to 1 if your CPU have more than 1 core. If you only have 1 core, you should not even be playing this game.

seta r_specular "0" <- default 1. Will remove reflections but might also make some areas of the maps much darker. See if you like it.

seta r_texFilterMipMode "Force Bilinear" Fastest mipmode, but this you can set in the ingame settings already.

seta r_vsync "0" <- default 1. Will remove the vertical sync, which feels like mouselag..

seta ragdoll_enable "0" <- default 1. I haven't tested this, but it worked in MW2. Will remove the bodies falling.

seta rate "25000" <- default should already be 25000, but just make sure that you have it.

seta sm_enable "0" <- default 1. Will remove shadows, huge fps boost on old computers. You can also remove shadows in the settings ingame.

seta snaps "30" <- default 20. Should give smoother gameplay if the server supports it.

Weird. Although manageble, its still laggy as hell. Initially, when the map loads, it gets laggy and it will stabilise after a few minutes. Then subsequently, every time i respawn, it will lagg horribly, giving me like fps below 20 for about 15 seconds, then stabilise.

I don't get it. Black Ops only supports 24 players. BF2142 and BF2 has 64, ET:QW has 32 and MW2 has 24. They all have BETTER graphics and can support MORE players.
