Windows 7: "lag" in online games with Windows 7

01 Aug 2010   #151


Medal of Honor: Allied Assault running on Win7 Ultimate (32bit) seems to be stable after changing the HEX value. You may add it to the list.

It is solved so thanks mate! MS should fix this.

Windows 7

Hey pinstripe just wanted to chime in here with some research.

Core 2 Duo 2.4ghz
4gb ram
Windows 7 64bit
Radeon 4870
Realtek Onboard Sound

As soon as I disable onboard sound in the BIOS all of my performance issues go away so either this is the same issue you guys have or something very similar.

I am having issues with HoN (general bad performance) and just got Starcraft 2 and getting issues with that as well (even in single player campaigns). The weirdest thing seems to be that even the video cut scenes (the non rendered ones, just video, I believe Bink) run incredibly shitty. Super choppy video, the audio is out of sync etc etc.

So I tried the network throttling reg fix and that didn't seem to do anything so I did the steps to disable MMCCS and that helped my video playback for cut scenes slightly but still had issues and as you mentioned, now I have choppy and stuttering audio as a result of MMCCS being disabled.

I have tried a wide variety of Realtek drivers (currently using 2.51) and have fully updated video/other drivers. Has anyone tried replacing their sound card? Is this issue just that my onboard Realtek sound card is not really compatible with Windows 7 64bit? I have an old Audigy laying around somewhere that I may test out and see if it helps...

Thanks for all the people who did the research on this bug! Hopefully can find a fix soon :)

More info...

After installing my Audigy 2 zs, disabling it doesn't seem to affect the performance at all. Back when I was using my onboard sound only, going into the BIOS and disabling the onboard sound resulted in higher performance.

Continues to confuse me...

For everyone who has this problem try my solution. I tried every other solution and i still got lag spikes. Simply disable the program Super fetch. I know they say its not good 2 but what happens is it eats up ram while your trying to play games to make your computer faster but its actually making you lag. As soon as i disabled it ALL lag spikes were gone!!!!

Windows 7 Ultimate x86

Hi guys,

It would SEEM that the latest updates from Windows 7 may have fixed the fps drop in cs 1.6, specifically KB982110 and KB2272691. Not sure which one of them did the trick but, after i installed, i tried playing a few rounds and it went smoothly as it would in XP. Adding an extra priority for hl.exe in the task manager will also increase performance.

I tried virtually all the fixes i found while googling, but none seemed to fix my issue. It improved somewhat, but not a permanent fix. Out of all the ideas suggested, i stuck to network throttling off, turned off DEP for hl.exe.

I have a core 2 duo 2Ghz a piece, 2 GB DDR3, and a GeForce 9500 GT, running Win 7 x86.

Hope this helps.

These seemed to have helped my framerates and the video speed but it is still not perfect. Can anyone else confirm if this helps?
