No spikes when hardwired, router in the other room due to ease of access. I could move it to the front room i suppose, but i hate running CAT6 cable, and don't understand why a 3 year old router would work better. Wondering if it is just some ports i don't have open for the game to access...Posted in: Technical Support

Ran a hardline to the router, gameplay is awesome with no lag spikes, shitty part is that the router is in my roommates room on the other side of the house. I would have though that with a 50 meg dl/5 meg ul i wouldnt have a problem. just tried to play again, Played through act 3 in nm on HC and was able to clear it but had about 10 spikes. if i was playing SC i dont think i would care. but the 5 seconds of "ohh my shit" scare me in HCPosted in: Technical Support

I would post the results through urls, but i don't have permission to post them.Quote from Lt. VenomWould you run speedtest.net and pingtest.net and post results please?
Also, did you try running a hardline into the router?
speedtest, is 39.54 down, 4.22 up, 15 second ping
pingtest is line quality A, MOS 4.39, 17ms ping, 4ms jitter
all on a wireless connection, the game plays very very well when i dont get a lag spike, but i get a lag spike about every 5 minutes for 5 to 10 seconds.

Selfless bump. Wondering if anyone has an answer. Would still continue to play, but I play HC and the prospect of consistent 5-10 second lag spikes isn't a fun one.Posted in: Technical Support

Just bought a new router for the household yesterday, Belkin N600. "Upgrading" from another older Belkin wireless router. The old router seemed to work well with the game, I wouldn't get lag spikes at all, and gameplay was smooth. This new router on the other hand is giving me lag spikes about every 5 minutes. I do not know if this is due to the router being dual band or if i don't have the right channels open.Posted in: Technical Support
I was wondering if anyone has run into this and has a solution. I would go back to the old one in a heartbeat if it weren't for my roommate needing the better range and speed of the new one.

Going the other route than the previous posts... I am a huge fan of Vince Flynn. Spy novels with a little government thrown in. His first book was really good and he has only recently slowed down due to cancer(unfortunately). Start with the book Term Limits, it is the only one where he has no free standing main character. If you like that his other 11 books follow a "super" spy who basically just kills everything in his path.Posted in: Off-Topic
The original Bourne trilogy(Robert Ludlum) is very good, but written in the 70's and at times delving too far into the politics/psychology.
On the fantasyish/sci-fi side I would recommend what is known as the Thrawn Trilogy. If you liked teh original Star Wars movies it is a must read. It is a 3 set of books from a brilliant author and in my opinion would have been the best books made into movies if ever Lucas wanted to put out Episodes VII-IX.
Silly as it sounds, for an easy read that keeps you engaged, Hunger Games. The first two books are really the best of the two but the third does tie up some loose ends, and ends well. Very easy reads and about 70% of the chapters leave you hanging and wanting to progress to the next.
Lastly, Michael Crichton. Any of his books besides the last two released after his death, are brilliant. E.R. is his brainchild. Movies that didn't do his books justice include: Jurassic Park(s), Congo, The 13th Warrior, Sphere, Andromeda Strain, etc. (http://bestsellers.about.com/od/bookfilmlistsbyauthor/tp/Michael_Crichton_Movies.htm)
There is so much out there that I would recommend, and not as much time, unless you make it. Happy hunting
