It's not lagging, lagging is when your network connection can't keep up with the data that is generated.

What you prolly have is too many graphics intensive mods..... so your frame rate is dropping pretty low. The only way to fix that is to remove these. There prolly is a list somewhere of which mods are graphically intensive.

ah, dont' do that

if you install all the mods, then tm will load all the mods. If you don't have enough ram, it will start swapping to the hard drive. Alsp there is ALOT of bookkeeping that needs to be done. Everytime a weapon spawns TM has to hunt through ALL of the mods to select which will show up.

And you can forget about load times as well.

Apparently, you can never have enough RAM...

The more physical ram you have, the less your comp needs to rely on the windows swapfile, thogh there is im told a way to set this as a static amount instead of it rewriting itself as it needs, thus fragmenting your drive.

If you watch for which weapon is fired when you get this video lag issue, write it down and then go turn the wepon off using the DNX Tmedb program (treadmarks entity database) - you cant find this either on DMF under the utilities section ( www.dmf.filetap.com ) or on blandys website at http://blandyuk.co.uk

treebomb and gravity bang are a couple of mods that can cause difficulties also the shadow summoner, the tornado, genade bomb, and lets not forget the *CHAFFMASTER3000*

ah. I stand corrected. Although I didn't think that that was called lag...
