A somewhat annoying situation has gotten worse for me lately, and I'm hoping some Community support will help me run down the issue.

I've been experiencing stutters and hiccups when running the game—like lag, but only a second of freezing—whenever the game has to "call" the Server: a player logs on/out, mobs appear, a spell is cast, opening the Character Sheet window, etc.

The issue is just constant little freezes, hiccups, that last a second or half-second, before the game continues. Then the game sort of "catches up" with itself, and sometimes LOTS has happened in that second (like my character nearly dying because I couldn't pop a potion in a timely fashion...).

If you remember the situation from like a week ago with the unchosen Languages causing a "pause" every few seconds, it is like this, but I'm just unable to make it go away.

At first I thought it was because of my Internet connection speed, but I just switched to another, faster network, and I must say it seems the connection is ever worse than before (definitely not better!).

Any advice? Could it literally be that my hardware is having the problem?

EDIT: this is my ping:

Does it happen with and without the client extender? I ditched the extender because I experienced lots of stuttering and jumpiness, without it the game runs smoother.

I do use Skywings, and honestly, I'd really like to keep it running. But I can also say for YEARS I've used Skywings without this issue.

The dataflow "calling" with the server back and forth is frequent, if hundreds of times per minute as you're logged on, moreso as you move.

I've also experienced a lot of performance/stuttering issues since awhile back, although my pc hasn't changed. One thing I found that helped a bit was to set cpu affinity to like half of the available cores. https://www.howto-connect.com/set-affin ... indows-10/
No idea why that should help, but for me it did. Who knows if it has any effect for you.

Well try another server and see if you're still having that problem

I'd also recommend trying it without Skywing's, just to see if it may be the cause or makes things worse - you can then still try to bugfix it without ditching it completely.

You mean there is another server besides BGTSCC?!? 8-)

I'm going to try a few things and if successful, I'll report back.
