Online game stutter?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi, I have been troubleshooting stuttering for some time now. 


I get hitches that look like frametime spikes in numerous online games. I assumed it was hardware related, but having played bunch of offline games there is no stutter. It does not look like rubberbanding or other network issues and is mimicing hardware issues.


Even simple games like Human fall flat stutter a lot if I join a lobby, but not if I play locally.


I assume there is something wrong with way my system is handling online games. What do I do?


Router seems fine and so does my connection have a stable wired 40MB connection, that doesn't drop.

Hi there,

I suggest you start with troubleshooting your network. Ping your local network and work your way out to the Internet. but remember most of games use UDP for their multiplayer connection and ping works on TCP.

But some games provide an option to check UDP pkt loss, like Insurgency: Sandstorm.

Some game engines handle pkt loss by freezing what you are seeing, so it might make sense in your situation. Also with current social situation, there is a lot of pressure on Networks, so it might not be something you could fix.

Let me know how it goes.
