Hey guys

I am having an issue with my Wolfenstein ET game. I have my own gameservers with ETJump and NoQuarter installed and they both have PunkBuster disabled.

Someone told me to enter this in console:

pb_cl_disable (this requires me to restart the game but when I restart the game it is just enabled again)
pb_sleep 500
pb_security 1

The last 2 CVARs have actually helped me fixing my ingame lag (not really lag but more of a stutter that occurs every 3 to 10 seconds and always the same interval between the 'stutters') but it is not all fixed yet. Can anybody out here provide me with a solution because this is starting to get really frustrating at times. It looks to me like PB is scanning my system and makes something interrupt for 1 milisecond or so, but that 1 ms is so damn annoying!

does anyone have a solution to this?

I know for one cvar, helped a lot of my friends, maybe it will help you with your lag. You could try. The cvar is /r_primitives, set it to 2, so /r_primitives 2
And also check your rate. /rate - I think that the best is 25000
I mean /rate 25000 - last one, for nq mod I have set cl_maxpackets works perfect.

Hope it helped.

Regards.

Do you have the latest punkbuster fix for Wolfenstein Enemy Territory installed, bro? If not, go here and download it:



http://etkey.org/pages/punkbuster.php



If you use Harlekin's auto-fix be sure and keep a copy of your own etkey, which you can overwrite the newly generated one, keeping your own Wolf ET identity intact cheers.gif .

But if the server has PB disabled, maybe it is not the reason of your lags ????

Like $mart sad , if your server has PB disabled , then Punkbuster isn't the reason.

Writing log files can a reason for stuttering servers .
Omnibot 0.85 makes a lot of server lags on mods like nq.
Too many or faulty lua scripts , configs or external mapscripts.

Their are many factors which can reasons for lags.

Can you post the IP's of your server's , some infos about your hardware and maybe a screenshot of the processes (task manager) while playing?

But I am almost sure that it has to do with PunkBuster. When I enter pb_security 0 and pb_sleep 500 in the ingame console, the lag will reduce. I will check all of the above out later today though.

EDIT: it was indeed PunkBuster causing me this lag, I think I had an inappropriate version of PB installed. I reinstalled PB with the link you gave {WeB}GANG$TA and it works now!

I'm glad you got your lag problem sorted, m8. I'd still check out the things that Stoer advised too, the more lag prevention we take the better our game/servers will run super.gif .

yeah I'm happy of it too man, this was spoiling my fun for a while already.

btw, can I ask for serverside NoQuarter support here? I have 2 gameservers with one running ETJump 2.0.5 and one using NoQuarter 1.2.9 beta 6. Both servers are using an adminlevel system with a fully working shrubbot. The only thing that bothers me is that I can't figure out why my commands are not alphabetically sorted when typing !help, same goes for !listmaps on the ETJump server, they are not sorted alphab.
