My problem seems unique based upon what I've found (or not found.) I and two friends are trying to play Starcraft through Battle.net but are unsuccessful thus far. My system is fairly high end, one friend has a plenty decent system (Friend number 1) and one has a fairly low end (friend number 2). Friend 1 can create a game and I can play with him just fine. If Friend 2 joins as well its so laggy that it's not even possible to play. As soon as one of us drops, either Friend 2 or myself, the game speed is normal. Neither Friend 2 or I can create a game, because we get the message "too high of latency." WHAT IS THE PROBLEM HERE?!
I AM using a router, but it's not affecting anything because I've disconnected it and gone straight through my cable modem and had the same problem. My firewall is down and all three of us have fast internet. My feeling is that there is a compatibility issue with Vista, though I've tried running the game after changing Starcraft to run "compatible with XP".
Can anyone help? I would really appreciate it!
