    Pins & needles!
    My new UHD 27" 4K monitor is out for delivery, and my current 27" FHD monitor is about to be picked up by someone who saw the Gumtree ad I posted a few hours ago.
    Talk about things moving quickly!
    Can't wait!
    • I have the weirdest issue now...
      Crazy lag when I game.
      The weird thing is there's no lag in COD4 until I join a server, then even selecting optionsI have the weirdest issue now...
      Crazy lag when I game.
      The weird thing is there's no lag in COD4 until I join a server, then even selecting options is extremely laggy.
      This also happens if I start my own server, so it's not a server or internet lag issue.
      The moment I exit a game/server everything is great again.
      In every other scenario my mouse/cursor is fast and accurate, so it can't be the refresh rate.
      I don't even know how to google this.

    • what refresh rate do you have the monitor set at ? Do you have vertical sync enabled ?

    • Awol - my setup (Mac & cable) allows 60Hz max, which my monitor is set to.
      Vsync? Just had to google it.
      Not sure?
      Where do I check that?
      Is it a CODAwol - my setup (Mac & cable) allows 60Hz max, which my monitor is set to.
      Vsync? Just had to google it.
      Not sure?
      Where do I check that?
      Is it a COD setting or a Windows setting?
      I set "Sync every frame" and it does seem a lot better, though that could just be high hopes and beer

      Bearing in mind I game on a Mac with Parallels for Windows.
      This was one of the first things I looked into - is Windows set at the same refresh rate as my Mac?
      Apparently not.
      In my display settings it shows 30Hz, and in COD4 it also shows 30Hz.
      Neither has the option for a higher setting.
      But when I googled this it turns out that Parallels will always use the Mac setting, and the rate displayed in Windows means nothing.

      Like I said, in Windows my mouse movement is crisp and precise.
      When I open COD4 my mouse is still crisp and precise.
      The moment I load a game I'm swimming in treacle - everything lags.
      Trying to select a team or weapon profile is slow and inaccurate.
      And it isn't mouse lag, it's keyboard too, so it definitely has something to do with FPS or refresh rate or something, but I'm buggered if I can figure it out.
      I've set FPS to 125 and one or two other command tweaks I found online, but really nothing makes any difference

      Like I said, setting the sync option does seem to have improved it, but I won't be convinced until I've gamed in anger.
