Relto on your own should give you 29. The game is generally capped at 30.

This version of URU is capped at 30FPS, and with a 7800GS, you should be able to maintain 30FPS without any trouble at all when in non-crowded locations. Even with 50 avatars, I wouldn't expect you to drop below 20FPS

Thanks Starlion

One thing I keep trying to figure out is why I have such bad lag with this machine:

3.2 Dual Core P4
2 Gig Ram
2x nvidia 7800 GTX 256 w/SLI
Dell 2405 FPW Monitor
X-Fi Extreme Sound Card.

I keep all audio and sound drivers up to date and have virus scannin disabled while running Urulive and regularly scan and remove spyware and adware. I run the game in 1600x1200 resolution on the 24" screen but with shadows, anti-aliasing and filtering turned off. Even with all that turned off I stll get major movement lag with 100+ people in the Watcher's Pub.

That sounds like a network issue. What sort of connection to the interwebs do you have?

I have a cable connection, 3mb pipe downstream, but the upstream pipe is only like 512k if that much.

EDIT: Not sure if it was the update or changing the setting my things are worse in game now for me.

This is my problem also and I am having a great deal of difficulty trying to find the fix. :cry:

re: slower internet connection.

In the last few months, I have noticed that the times of the day seems to make quite a difference with the speed.

I live in the Eastern Time Zone and get much lower speeds in the morning around 9am when all the business offices start to go on line and at around 16:00 to 22:00 pm (when all the younger generations get on line ????).

Since I am retired, time of the day is less a problem at my end. When I have some updatings to make, the best speeds are acheived in between 1:00 am and 4:00 am. (anywhere from 2 to 4 times faster). I remember a download from Gametap (6:00 pm) going down as slow as 21KB/sec.
In the early hours of the night, it is around 800KB/sec with peaks well over 1MB/sec

If you happen to be on cable internet, you're sharing a node (and therefore, bandwidth) with everyone in the immediate area. The busier the node, the slower things get, which would explain your speed going way up during low-usage hours.

This isn’t to say that other forms of high-speed internet access don’t suffer from similar bandwidth drain, but cable is probably hit the hardest depending on how other people on your node use their bandwidth during the day (a few neighbors using bittorrent will kill you on cable).

I find I have the same problems whether it is 6 am in the moring or 8 pm in the evening and anytime in between.
