Hey guys , i just started BF2 Back up, and ill be playing this for a while (I hope).
I have 1 problem though , when im playing , its really really jittery.

An example: I move the crosshair 10 inches to the left - It then moves it back to 8 inches ... thats lag for sure.

Anyone know how to fix this? Any commands that you might now?

Anyone's help would be appreciated

connect to better servers... defrag... and if you are using your internet connection be sure to allow for a little overhead...

if you're router support QoS/Traffic Shaping enable it...

if you have a decent router... you shouldn't need to forward any ports for bf2 to work correctly...

forwarding should only be required when running the server...

Server Ports:
UDP 27900
UDP/TCP 29900
TCP 80
TCP 4711
TCP 29901
UDP 1500-4999
UDP/TCP 1024-1124
UDP 28910
UDP 16567
UDP 55123-55125

but you can help reduce lag by configuring your routers QoS/Traffic Shaping to route this ports at High Priority.

i normally have 3 systems on my lan running bf2 at the same time... with no lag issues...

This is only happening in multiplayer? All these port fixes and things aren't gonna do jack if it happens in SP as well.

You'll definitely wanna do a spyware/virus check followed by a disk clean up, disk check at reboot and a disk defragment. My system is a lot crappier than yours, but the game runs fine because I keep the scans regular, do disk cleanups often, and I keep the disk regularly defragmented with Diskeeper.

Check out my BF2 lag FAQ, it should solve some common performance issues.


http://www.overclock.net/faqs/98915-...et-better.html

Note that bittorrent will use all of your bandwidth, no matter how much you have. That's probably causing your issues but the FAQ is still a good read.

Doesn't matter what your connection is, it still creates high pings. That is definitely what's causing your problem.

Ugh if I had read that part originally I wouldn't have bothered typing out all the fixes. Turn that stuff off before you play ANY online game. If you don't, expect problems. Games are designed to run using all of your system resources... you can't tie them up with other applications. Turn off all those chat clients and things as well.

i normally have a few ftp transfers, a few vpn tunnels, and a bittorrent transfer or 4 running... and can still play bf2 with a <35ms ping on good servers...

but all of my apps are configured to not abuse the connection

if you're choking your upload or your download... you're going to have ping issues...

any decent bt client should have options to throttle traffic... proper configuration of the transfer settings are a responsibility of the user though...
