HI, 

So recently I've had a problem with packet loss while gaming. It only happens with one game in particular called Rust a survival game on Steam. I've been playing this game for a long time now, I've played before I upgraded my pc and played years ago on wireless there was no problem at all. I now have ethernet fiber broadband for a long time and everything runs a lot smoother, suddenly about a month or 2 ago I've noticed this thing called rubber banding and it happens when I play only Rust every other game works perfectly fine I'm from the EU and i play other games on USA servers and i have really good/smooth connection. but when I play Rust EU servers i notice random packet loss and rubber bands. (Rubber bands is when your player moves forward and then suddenly gets pulled back to where you were 5 seconds ago and delays everything else)

 

I've done everything to resolve this issue. Temps are running fine as I always look after my PC and applied thermal paste not so long ago. I have a command that shows my FPS and PING/MS. When playing Rust my FPS is stable above 60+ on med setting/graphics and my Ping shows up under 20 all the time when in a public EU server. I've contacted ISP everything is running fine their end and updated drivers, tried playing with and without ethernet and still no luck on this. Like I said its only happening to rust recently which I've been playing for a long time now. Every other game is fine.

So I narrowed it down to maybe my M.2 I might be going crazy but its the only thing I came up with as its the only game that's o it because the game requires an SSD to load in things much quicker has its a heavy game. 

So if anyone has experienced this with one game in particular and found the problem please let me know! 

 

Here are some screenshots of me in-game show the NET tab whilst playing:

As you can see this is showing my current packet loss, I've done a packet loss test and internet test and the results are always good and this happens to me about every 5-10 seconds only in this game I have a lot of hours in this game and I've never experienced this before and its annoying as I enjoy this game with my friends. 

I hope to hear any feedback that could help with this. 

 

PC SPECS: i7 8700(non K), GTX 1070, 16GB RAM and 250GB m.2

Thanks,

Squid

hi

sorry, but according to what you indicated, problem with a game, on certain servers, difficult to help you here
The problem may be precisely from the servers, you should ask directly from this side

It may not be possible for you, and now with fiber, it may not be done anymore, and probably useless
But at my ISP, we had a special option, we could change the connection mode, there is one for example it was the standard / potato, depending on it could help for certain problems
see if there is something like this ( use translate )
