    Default Some questions about lag

    Umm..my laptop seems to get some lag problems in FR and i don't know why.

    I know that populated servers and whatever programs you run affect lag. Recently, I installed AVG Anti-Virus and I soon experience horrendous lag (FR ran way smoothly before, no matter where I am, it lags almost all the time). I tried uninstalling AVG but nothing happend.


    I'm wondering what else contributes to lag and what improvements can I add to my PC (I'm planning to play FR on my PC than my laptop.

    Did your antivirus have a scheduled scan ? If so , try to schedule the scan around a time you don't play on the game .

    Even when AVG is not scanning, the lag is still horrible.

    I don't believe AVG is the problem. I have AVG and Free Realms runs just fine... is there anything else you installed recently that takes up a lot of space? I know programs like iTunes can really slow down some computers...

    Lag affects my game as well , even when Free Realms is the only thing running on it ... I think they still haven't fixed the game .

    I'm not sure, but how often to you run disk cleanup? it's a good thing to use to delete unnessecary files that may be slowing down your computer.

    Disk Cleanup, Disk Defragmenter, removing programs, and clearing your history/cookies/cache/temporary internet files can all do quite a bit to reduce lag. You can also try closing programs that may be running in the background, which aren't always obviously running. Deleting files that you no longer use and know aren't required for system functionality will likely help, too, depending on the file size.
    If the lag started occurring recently, you can try System Restore to adjust your computer files back to an earlier time and see if that helps. If it does, I think you can keep using your computer from the Restore Point and see if that will prevent any problems.
    Status: Quit FR since I never liked FR at all. Will probably not post anymore.

    It's usually people's internet connections.....Allow me to elaborate. Free Realms needs a very strong internet connection to run it SMOOTHLY. The game takes up about 400,000 (I have no idea in what term I would put that in because I control+Alt+Delete....)memory when you have it launched. Try checking your internet connection...Don't take this as offense but you know FR's system requirements are getting....ummm......Like more advanced...like you might need a better PC. I just switched and it works perfect now. But don't do anything that I said that you think might create a bigger problem than it already is

    I'll try your suggestions, Kel and RP.
    Nate, it's not really my internet. When I move the camera way above my character without the UI, there won't be any lag. It only lags a lot when the camera is directly behind my character
