Killing Floor lag spikes too much? Nov. 2nd, 2012 @ 10:51 PM Reply

I just bought Killing Floor hearing good reviews over it and checked out ne gameplay videos of it, it looked fun so I bought it.

I have two problems with the game.

1: It lag spikes A LOT for no reason, I don't know why it would, my pc can run l4d2 fine even when my ping is 200-300 and Killing Floor's system as I've heard are a lot lower than l4d2.

2: It takes forever to find a server that isn't password protected, full, or custom.

Help?

If loads of enemies spawn at the same time everyone on the server gets a lag spike. It doesnt happen too much though, its easiest to notice at the very start of a wave.

I hate it when people can't tell the difference between server lag and framerate lag, or can't specify. Makes it hell to help them.

Are all the servers you're joining lagging, or can your PC just not run the game?

Agreed. Why the fuck would you play online with ping that shitty?

Use the server filters. You can just set it to "No passwords" or "No full servers". Although sometimes the server list will still pick up some full ones but it still helps.
