Does anyone know how to run multiple clients without lag, while using windowed mode?
I can use many clients if I play them full screen, but when I play them windowed mode, I can't even use two clients without the second client lagging.
My computer specs should be way over the top for RO...
This should have been in a new topic, as it has nothing to do with graphics issues.
You should be able to run 1 client per processor core your machine has, beyond that, performance will be miserable.
A few tips:
1) Use RO Mouse Freedom - it improves CPU use a little, particularly with multiple clients up.
2) Let the clients run for a while - I have no idea why this works (by all rights it shouldn't), but I find that when I first start clients close to the limit that my computer can handle, they run slow for a while. It's not because it's loading stuff off the hdd (I've got an SSD), and it's not swapping (i've got 16GB of ram), but the client still runs like crap for a while. But if I later go back to it after playing on the other clients for a while, I can no longer find the laggy client.
