Default How to improve the game performance?

Hi guys,

I noticed that towns are very laggy, even with graphic settings set to the lowest. I have a good machine, able to play the latest games today, but I cannot find the way to improve the game performance, specially over crowded areas.

Any ideas how to work on this? It will be very helpful.

I use Leatrix Latency Fix to reduce Latency (according to the Forums Mods it is okay. So no worries about getting banned) and additionally i use Razer Game Booster. You can Launch a "Game Mode" in which it closes unneccesary/unused tasks working in the background of your machine. According to its setup it boosts my machines performance by ~44%. Tho i dunno if this is really true i got the impression the game runs more fluently when using it.

Do you have an ssd? That gave me the biggest performance boost. Also a good video card that has drivers that are well supported by l2.. Also a good internet connection is a must.

SSD helps a lot (especially if it is a high performance one), but still it won't cure the lag inside crowded towns. I run the game from a combination of RAM and SSD and still have that.

Internet connection is usually the suspect and sadly it is mostly beyond user's control. Tools like latency fix and battleping help some users but not all. Distance from game servers and particular routes followed by various ISP's tend to affect latency.

Leatrix fix helps 20% ssd + 30% WTFast Loverping Battleping those 3 programs are legal for reducing ping. and help in crowded areas like sieges and town about more 40% . Your computer processor have some influence video card have some influence. your ram have some )) so basicly i7 8 gb ram(Good ones) good motherboard! + ssd hope u have there raid0 thou .. Well video card you can have medium + lower details . So basicly that all u need to have.To participate in sieges )

And if u want 0 lags u need maybe live near server and have 100/100 DL/UP line.

leatrix does nothing on new OS's but believe w/e you want
and dl/up speed doesnt make you cut the distance from your point to server. your ping doesnt get lower with high dl/up speed

Plz dont tell me that speed doesnt count. Because of simple test 1/0.24 mb line try that one. then look at your l2 performance
And just after that update ur line to lets say 10/1 and then try ur l2 performance. Guess what both lines had like 70-90 ping and difference was huge. Thou if ping goes 200+ its not posible to play either so. Speeds=mather ping=mather. higher speeds lower ping = better l2 performance.
Leatrix do his job. Proved.

Are you getting paid well for advertising or...?GameBooster will help 0.00% to improve l2 performance...it just close some tasks running.Btw i can play any new game on ultra too but l2 still so bad fps.Its nothing to do with latency its just very bad coded and it wants too many horsepower(cpu).Until Lineage 50 comes out with a new engine and lets hope without GG(gameguard) you can lower Display limit on towns help really a lot.Its on video settings

Soz for answering the OPs question, Mister.
And since when is suggesting a program one uses "advertising"?
And if you read my answer carefully i said there "Tho i dunno if this is really true i got the impression the game runs more fluently when using it."

And now, back to your cave..

cheap amd 4+ core processor , mobo with sata 3 , samsung 840 ssd , 16gb of ram

if you have money buy premium wtfast and make sure that u are not running useless programs (kaspersky,avast,skype or etc ...)
if you want to turn off useless programs than start menu > run > msconfig > services > hide all win services > unmark the useless ones
same with startup : msconfig > startup > unmark the useless ones and press ok , make restart

best regards

As L2 uses a very old engine, the game itself doesn't take the same advantage of having a modern hardware if you compare to newer games. GW2 and TERA are light years ahead of L2 when it comes to graphics and they run very smooth on my PC using high settings while L2 lags a lot.

Guys I tried Leatrix and it is trully amazing, it reduced significantly the latency I had before. This soft alone solved my problem.
I will take a look at the others you mentioned here as well.
Cheers!

W8, why do you need 16gb and SSD? Arent you running the l2 from the SSD? I am bad with computers, but looking forward for a new set up and I was wondering what to get.

Over the last 24 hours, the lag spikes have been constant. Not just for me, but for my clannies a well. Last night, the NPC server crashed sometime after 9:30est. So there might be something else going on. Someone suggested: "Lindvior Testing"?

Bad / old - engine / software = no matter how good PC you have it will not perform well.
