Far Cry 2 SERIOUS LAG!!!
I bought Far Cry 2 Fortunes Edition on Steam Yesterday as it was only £2.50, bargain , I was very excited to play the game so as soon as the download finished I jumped straight into the game, everything seemed normal but then my excitement was crushed by the demon that is LAG!!!
I don't understand how I am getting such bad lag even though my system exceeds the recommended system requirements.
AMD Phenom II X4 960T @3.0Ghz
ASUS M4A78LT M-LE Motherboard
4GB DDR3 1333Mhz RAM
ASUS DirectCU II GTX 550Ti
OCZ fatal1ty series 550W PSU
I have tried disabling V-Sync, changing to DX9, altering the GameProfile file so smoothmouse and smoothmouseironsights were both set to 0, I have tried every which way to try and get this lag fixed but it still persists
help me please

The lag can be caused by one or more ports being closed in your network settings. Also make sure that nothing else is accessing the internet and your anti-virus software is set to allow the software access.
The following ports need to be open in your router or firewall:
9000-9004 TCP & UDP (default ports)
You can configure the ports that are used from within the Network options in the game.
Please make sure that you have the latest firmware driver updates for your router from the manufacturers website.
I have this same problem ....
Phenom II x4 960
8 gb ram
I can play Battlefield 3, nor problem Far Cry 2 Low settings, 640x480 10-18 FPS ....
Open ports ?? lol !!!! What this have anything to do with game performance ????
What is the ping to the servers you are connecting to ? The vast majority of players are in South America or Europe anymore. Look for a server with low ping, try it on a weekend when more servers are up...just a thought... Rhett
Ho does not mean LAG, like in the online play .... Waht he meant is bad perfomance of the game in general ... 10-18 fps in single player game....
You think why he post his computer spec??

I have no clue why he is experiencing lag, his system appears to be faster than mine, and I run a GTX 460V2 and get 60 to 80 FPS...perhaps something else is running in the background, or he is running two monitors off his card...dunno ... Rhett
