Windows 7: High FPS = High Ping in games (solution anyone?)

High FPS = High Ping in games (solution anyone?)

Hey All, i'm new here this is my first post but it looked like a fairly knowldegeable place so i'm happy to give it a try, hope someone here can help

First, a bit of background info..
Since i got my hands on the RC i've loved it. I'm running the 64bit version on this spec (I Don't think it'll be important, but still worth saying)

AMD Athlon 64 3200 OC'd to 2.5Ghz
1.5 GB DDR-400 Ram
GeForce 6800GT
IDE HDD's and so on.

I've already seen a post without a solution to this...

The Problem
Anyone who plays Countestrike source on Windows 7 will probably have seen this.
If the FPS Is set to 30 or lower = Normal Ping of around 24 - 30ms on UK Servers.
If The FPS Is set to 101 or higher = High ping of around 56 - 80ms on UK Servers.

This is annoying. 100FPS Is the optimal, i cap it there on purpose because i don't need anyone, i can get full smooth game play using it, however with that ping i can't.

I've tried disabling the Firewall, homegroup shares etc.
I Tried using the command:
netsh interface tcp set global autotuning=disabled
No Luck.

Anyone with an idea at all i will buy a cookie if i ever meet them!

Thanks,
Luke

You could try Faster Ping. It may help lower your ping.

Free Download - Faster Ping 0.1beta - Simulation - Simtel.net

Unzip and dont't bother with the setup. Go in the fasterPing_0_1_1_11 folder, run FasterPing.exe as Administrator. Just click Apply. Reboot. Done

Programs not compatible, but thanks.
I'm convinced its a built in setting in 7 to be honest. I'm not after a program to improve my ping, i'm after a fix and a reason why it isn't the same as before.
Again, thanks for the help though

Hi and welcome to SF. Glad to see your asking. Just curious, what was the fps and ping in vista and how is it different now? Whats you broadband connection like? Ever do a traceroute from computer to server to see if/where the slow down occurs?

Hope I have helped somewhat

Hi Ken,
I Never actually used Vista, i was using XP Pro SP3. The fps using XP was around 80 - 101 constantly, with my ping around 24 - 32ms on a uk server.
My broadbands okay, its 2mb but always worked fine.
I can tell its nothing to do with my broadband or the servers because of if i lower the fps, the ping is exactly what i expect.
Its gonna be an intresting one...

hey. How much memory do you have isntalled? We could help you more if you filled in "my system specs" in control panel. I think @100fps you're probably maxing out the 2 megs. I just tried it on a 10meg pipe @100fps and in order to get ping (which means nothing) down I had to uncap it to 8 Meg. At that rate it was chewing up computer memory and almost everything else (email, etc) slowed to a crawl.

There is a utility called traceroute It checks from your computer to the server and tells you where the slowdown is. Do a google and download it. this is what it looks like

Hi Ken,
I Don't think your quite understanding what i mean.

The ping problem is not related to my internet connection to the outside world.
It is something to do with windows 7 in some way.
This way could be the network interface, possibly a driver or something completely different but it is related to the RC and not my internet connection.

Therefore, theres little point doing a traceroute if thats not where my problem is.

Oh, and its 1.50GB. I posted the spec on the first post i made.

Thanks.

My bad. I hear ping and think zebra's. By ping time you're checking from 1pc on a lan to another?

It is possible that if the game is using full cpu resources, then the ping could suffer in that type of scenario. Meaning if the cpu is maxed out by the game, that doesn't leave networking a whole lot to go with.
