shujuju Posted September 24, 2017 Share Posted September 24, 2017 I have a couple of friends that I bought Dont Starve, the DLC and Dont starve together for so that we could play together, but now that we have actually started playing we have had huge issues getting good connection! I know that the servers are run from the hosts computer and that it depends on their computer and internet speed, all of us have decent internet but we live very far away from each other, one of them is in Alaska, I am in Alberta Canada and another is in Tennessee. This makes connection really bad, so Ive looked for the best ways to increase the server speed as much as possible but I haven't been able to find much surprisingly! The two things I tried from things I've found online to increase connection and speed was to change Don't Starve Together's priority in my task manager to "High" and go onto Steam and change the launch options to say "-tick_rate 60", I got my friends to do this as well, but it doesn't really seem to change much. None of us have any issues actually running the game, its just when we all connect together we get extreme lag that can prevent us from picking things up, from making torches/making fires and even from moving for a good minute or so. Ive done as much research and I can and I really am not sure what we can do to play together more, we have had some success playing, even with the extreme lag, but I would love it if we wouldn't glitch around the screen for a minute at a time while we play. I heard that port forwarding can make things run smoother but I have had issues with port forwarding in the past, anybody else have any other suggestions? Or will I just need to deal with the lag until hopefully some updates can come out to possibly make the connection better? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
