Ok First off maybe my computer is too slow for this game but I doubt it.

I have an athlon xp2000 with 1 gig sdram using a geforce 3 ti 500 64meg with a cable connection that averages 1.5 meg per second. I believe this is 4 times the miniumum requirements in every category.

I have not played a single game here "ever" without lag with 4 or more people and I mean serious lag. I can only play 1v1 games because of this.

So has anyone else enjoyed a lag free game with more than 4 people? if so tell me what I am doing wrong.

It's not you, it's everyone else... You've got godly equipment there, but everyone else seems to have been left behind with AoM... what I mean is that their computers are outdated by AoM, and thus don't run it well.

When a game with many players runs slowly it can be because of any of the systems involved. Still, are there any special symptoms that show up when it does get slow? Like a lot of harddrive access or whatever that is noticeable. And what kind of lag is it? Lag is sometimes used to describe very different problems, and not just network latency wich is its true meaning.

I had extreme lag in 2v2's as well I have a lesser comp then you have though, 1200mhz AMD, 256 RAM, geforce2 MX 64MB video , asdl/isdn connection.
Still I thought my comp should be able to handle it, well it doesnt, untill I put the resolution down to 1024x786.
So try fiddling with your resolution if all else fails.

this has some good tips to reduce lag. Pay attention to the red/yellow dots and turtles by players names. The dots represent high and moderate latency and the turtle indicates the person's comp can't handle it.

Flammifer, thanks for the MFO tips. I have had the problem however using the lowest and the highest resolution settings. I have also never played with anyone that didn't have a green ping which is supposed to be the best.


btw Monkey cheese must think that if you have a 486/33 cpu with a T3 connection you would be able to play AOM like speed skaters gliding across the ice. Heck I dont know why anyone would even spend money on a 3ghz cpu when only the internet connection lags you on line.

I rarely get lagged, maybe you should play games with me. And thanks for that link Flammifer, maybe I'll have less lag if I change some of my settings....
