I've been experiencing severe lag in PVKII.
PVKII on average is slightly laggy for me, even though I have a more than adequate machine.
The lag according to statistics whilst playing, is not from FPS.
The numeral output for 'choke' is where the lag and stuttering appears to be related to.
The choke on almost all servers is above 10, and on butt pirates, about 40.
Now, I'd blame the servers, but my friend Tolin has stated he has absolutely no lag.
I've never ever had to port forward for Source engine, but decided to do it just incase it was a firewall issue, and that didn't solve a thing.
Even though it is clearly a network issue, I tried toying with graphics, lowering them to the absolute lowest, even though I have a GTX 580.
Even tried disabling multi-core in both steam console, and using task manager to set affinity.
The lag is so severe, the game is virtually unplayable. I die constantly, because there is a pause/freeze during combat, randomly.
I'm willing to do some demos and dumps if that info is needed. Please help me fix this or I'll have to just give up on playing PVKII, my favourite game.
