- 2 - The internet connection or the server is too slow
1 - In case your PC is too slow
- Update your video card drivers
- Install the latest DirectX version (Windows only)
- Try windowed/fullscreen and DirectX/OpenGL! (Windows only) param: -dx, -opengl, -win or -full Start params in Steam
- Non-Steam Version: Try Launcher.exe!
- Run Windows update
- Close programs and processes you don't need (maybe also anti virus software and firewalls)
- Change the settings to get more speed:
- Disable the light engine (Options → Graphics → Lighting)
- Set map shadows to simple or none (Options → Graphics → Map Shadows)
- Reduce particle details (Options → Graphics → Particle Details)
- Disable advanced minimap (Options → Game → Advanced Minimap)
- Set radar to simple or none (Options → Game → Radar)
- Disable decal rendering (Options → More → renderdecals)
- Disable decoration rendering (Options → More → renderdecoration)
- Disable avatar images (Options → More → sb_avatars)
- If nothing helps: Consider to upgrade your system (especially the video card!)
2 - In case the connection/server is too slow
