so i've been pressing H as soon as i get in a game and putting chatbox in "hidden" mode. It seems to help, I played like three 1200 ticekt matches and didn't notice any hitching.... maybe its just a placebo effect? maybe its just that i'm not noticing it as much with the chatbox not there lmao. I'm the type of guy that likes to have things running perfect and maybe i notice it more then some. But hey I might as well leave it off anyways. keep me out of trouble too lol.
ya still got the chat lag bug. I've ran out of ideas. It must be the game like waco said. I just don't understand then why it doesn't happen to everybody on the server?
Do you really need the chatbox? Isn't there a way to disable it in BF3? I haven't played in a while but I seem to remember that you could press the "H" key and cycle through 2 or 3 choices.
but in my 4th match today, I was in a server just now. right towards the end of the match i started lagging bad. I put the chatbox back on and it didn't seem to be even directly coinciding with it this time!? And I guess because it was a friday...there were many other non regular players on the server complaining about it also. Happend to all of us i guess at the same time, right at the same time chatbox lag would probably normally occur. its so strange.
Something is wrong with this game, the multiplayer matches just get laggier and laggier as the match goes on for some reason, no matter what settings or how many players. and eventually on ocassion it cause spikes. almost like a memory leak or a connections getting bogged down. Its almost like the server connection effects your fps in this game and its bizarre, very similar to how input lag would gradually get worse the longer you play a game. And i just really don't think it has to do with my ISP or my PC. there something wrong with their coding. maybe it does have to do with the netcode i'm not sure. I hope they fix this eventually. The game itself is amazing, and i would love to buy some expansions for it. But i can't support a broken game, that is dissapointing so many players and had me chasing ghosts on my pc.
