Freeze ups, jerky play and netcode2 dropped ...?

3 posts in this topic

Just recently I've had a few problems that I've never had before. No hardware changes at all and only software change was updating to the latest NVIDIA drivers 3 or 4 weeks ago.

Sometimes, the game kind of freezes up. If I use chat, my message doesn't appear, but I see other players. I can still move around in game, but all other players freeze in place. After maybe 20 seconds everyone zooms over to their real place on the battlefield and any messages I typed then appear in chat. Sometimes, I get a message in the chatbar saying Netcode 2 was dropped and reverting to original protocol.

If I die during one of these freaky periods, I can't despawn. I hit escape and despawn option comes up, but no timer and ok button not clickable. I have to wait for it to calm down and get back to normal.

It's happened maybe 5 times in the past 2 weeks, but then happened 4 times this evening.

I assumed it was my internet connection, but no other programmes seem to be having trouble (streamed a movie on different machine at the same time). Could it be the Gfx card driver update? Anyone else experienced anything like this?

System:

Intel core2 quad cpu q8300 - 2.5ghz

4GB ram

NVIDIA GeForce GT320 driver version 280.26

Cheers,

Jon

sounds to me like a network issue, but to eliminate the GPU drivers I would revert back to the previous drivers that worked and see if the problem still occurs. Generally, I do not recommend updating drivers unless it's to fix a problem, as often new drivers can introduce errors that were not previously present.

Thanks Hick. I'll roll back the drivers this evening and see if that helps, if not I guess I'll reset the modem and wireless router back to factory settings and set the network up again.
