Hey guys, So I installed MW2 three days ago and its running nicely. But on both single and multiplayer im getting a very annoying stutter and slight pauses making multiplay especially very fustrating. (more so than p2p matchmaking) Again, it runs perfectly, getting 70 - 90 fps on all full settings, expect for thse annoying stutters and pauses. Any ideas? I'll post system specs, thanks. ------------------ System Information ------------------ Time of this report: 11/12/2009, 23:20:08 Machine name: Epsilon Operating System: Windows Vistaâ„¢ Home Premium 64 (6.0, Build 6001) Service Pack 1 (6001.vistasp1_gdr.090805-0102) Language: English (Regional Setting: English) System Manufacturer: Alienware System Model: Area-51 7500 R6 BIOS: Phoenix - AwardBIOS v6.00PG Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q9400 @ 2.66GHz (4 CPUs), ~2.7GHz Memory: 4094MB RAM Page File: 3103MB used, 5312MB available Windows Dir: C:\Windows DirectX Version: DirectX 10c DX Setup Parameters: Not found DxDiag Version: 6.00.6001.18000 32bit Unicode --------------- Display Devices --------------- Card name: NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250 SLi x2 Manufacturer: NVIDIA Chip type: NVxx DAC type: Integrated RAMDAC Device Key: Enum\PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0615&SUBSYS_11513842&REV_A2 Display Memory: 2289 MB Dedicated Memory: 497 MB Shared Memory: 1791 MB Current Mode: 1360 x 768 (32 bit) (60Hz) Monitor: Generic PnP Monitor

    I actually had the same problem.

    I just turned down the AA to 2x and the texture settings to automatic and I was fine.

    It won't look as beautiful but you'll still be able to play it.

    Is it like this? My first thought is microstutter, if that is what your game is doing, try disabling SLI and running it on one card and see what happens.

    This--although I've never had an SLi rig--I do recall when I was heavy into CoD4 that I would constantly get small hitches while playing. For some reason the SLi option was constantly being checked when starting the game, and whenever I turned it off the game ran completely smooth.

    Seeing as this engine is still on the same skeleton as the last 3; I would try this first before going through any other lengthier steps.

    Same problem here. Really pissed me off in SinglePlayer. I decreased AA to 2x, but it still happened, though less often. I increased the fan speed on my card, and it seems to have gone away, at least in multiplayer.

    I'm running a Radeon HD4870 btw.

    I turned the graphic settings to High rather than Extreme. It fixed the problem, but once a patch gets released (if that ever happens) I'll bump 'em back up to Extreme. That's what the game recommended for me in the first place..

    Yes, it's very similar to this but not quite as bad, I've tried turning down AA and turning off V-sync and its still tripping up every now and then.
    I couldnt find an option to turn off Sli, any clues to where it is? :)
    I've also noticed a massive decrease in matchmaking peformance since the last patch, I hope they re-think Dedicated servers or I'm going back to CS. :(

    Do you ever get the thing where you're in a party lobby with a friend, and it just starts quickly putting you, and you alone in different game lobbies?
    When it does that to me, it switches through servers so fast all I hear is tons of really fast clicking noises and names popping up.

    It should be in the nVidia control panel.

    Yes I've had countless different errors through matchmaking and parties -- I really don't like how they made it a console game and ported it over to the PC. CoD has always been a strong PC multiplayer game...
    I'll try Disableing SLi and see how performance goes then,
    Thanks,,

    Hhhh, Tried disabling SLi to no avail..
    Still getting a very high frame rate but its Stuttering even more. :(
    I'll stick with Sli on for now with reduced video settings -- It's playable enough.

    Nvidia just released new drivers today. You should give them a go to see if they fix your problem.

    Edit: Forgot to mention they were WHQL candidate drivers. Here's a link to them in case you want to give them a go. The notes say they fix issues with SLi and MW2.

    Downloaded - Installed - Working fine =)
    Some slight framerate drops I wasn't experienceing before, but no biggy.
    Thanks for letting us know about those updates!

    **Edit**
    Anyone else having to wait Aaages to join a game? I'm waiting maybe 5 minutes a time and getting dropped or getting some random host error message...

    Yea the IW.net system isn't the greatest. It can take up to 10 minutes for my buds and I to get into a match due to all these problems.

    Takes me like what, less than a minute? Don't see why everyone else fails at joining servers.

    Like DeadEcho, I'm only really getting problems when I'm in a party -- If im solo, then yeah sure it's maybe about a minute.
    Still not as quick as clicking on a server myself... *cough* *cough* =3

    Yea it's in parties. When I'm alone I have no issues what so ever joining a lobby.

    But also in parties it's not always that bad. It's just that you wait a minute to get into a lobby. Then sometimes one person will get kicked from the lobby meaning you and all your friends need to leave to get him again. Sometimes that's just continuous and time consuming. Otherwise it's not bad all the time, but bad more often than not.
