Hey, when i host a game on Halo i never get any lag, but no matter what server i choose to join, i will get lag. In most servers my ping on halo is 33 - 100 [ Very Good ]. I have even tried running a dedicated server for halo on the SAME pc, joining it gives me a " Fake " ping of 33, but hey i get lag -.-''. I used to be able to play halo normally without any lag at all a couple of years ago O_O'' [ Same pc ]. As soon as i noticed this problem, i tried everything..more than once. I believe that it may be something to do with ports.
I tried :
- Re installing windows
- Buying more ram
- Changing my internet provider...TWICE
- Re installing halo
- Buying new halo disk
- Trying various different firewalls / antivirus
- Forwarding ports
- Contacting my internet service
Note : I also play other games online on pc plus xbox 360 live, i recieve NO lag.
Protection At the moment : Avg Antivirus plus Firewall / Windows Firewall
Thanks, please help.
