Yeah I figured my cpu couldn't be outdated for 1.6. I am pretty sure I have tried reinstalling the game. I do not know how to defragment my HD, and I do not know what chkdsk is. However, I was just scanning through my video card options yesterday.
I right clicked desktop > Properties > Settings > Advanced > Adapter > Properties > Driver > Update Driver > I think I tried this before but it didnt work last time. However, this time the Wizard did find updates, My version was like 18.104.22.168 I think, there was an update for that version. However there was also a new one, 22.214.171.124 or something like that, I know it started with a 5. Anyways, I updated to that successfully, after restarting my comp it forced me to play 1.6 in software mode, this version did not support OpenGL I guess. So I updated it to the 2nd version of 126.96.36.199. And then it did support OpenGL.
So I connected to a server, and it didn't freeze me, my latency was around 40-50 on that server while before it was 60-70. So I played in that server for like 45 minutes without freezing. This was big because since November I could not stay in server more than 2 minutes without freezing. Then I tried to connect to a different server, but it froze me even before I joined a team. Then I joined another server, this was a Chicago server, and I live in Chicago, this gave me 15-20 latency, and it did not freeze me.
So after updating the driver I did see improvement, before the driver it would freeze me on any server, now it doesn't freeze me in some servers.
The thing is, although I did update the driver, it is still not completely fixed, because before this problem occured in November, my cpu could go into any server and usually have the best latency of all the players.
But I am still glad it is fixed somewhat now.
