I have these problems I bought the game yesterday and I try to join a server but when I do I go really slow I can play but its slow. I then try to get resourses and it takes minutes for them to actually be put into my inventory. When I talk they don't get my messages for a few minutes but theirs come instantly. I like single player but its not always fun to play by yourself. IT SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!
Getting the same server lag problems as well as a really crappy FPS. I really never had this problem before, I hope a solution comes soon :sad.gif:
I also read ThatCanadianGuy's guide, and it didn't help my FPS at all. Except for maybe Optimine which boosted it up by 5 fps max.
I got the problem again, though it was only about two seconds of delay this time (I've seen it up to 25 seconds, but others here have gotten worse). I just replaced some redstone torches and voila, fixed. It seems to be a recurring issue with them, but can be resolved in a case by case basis until a fix comes around. (others in the server experience the same issue when they are near the broken redstone torches as well) I'm surprised no one has responded or tried my solution yet despite my two posts. There may be other causes or other lag issues, but this so far has consistently fixed the problem as described by the original post, so I think it's the same thing.
(again, this isn't a network lag issue [50ms ping] or a performance lag issue [100+fps].. things are just delayed)
Wish I hadn't completely missed your posts...
Removing Redstone torches clears up the lag almost completely.
Luckily I'd only just begun wiring in my town, and only had two so far...
I performed some tests with the wonderful SysOp of my server, at one point it looked to be a problem with the version of Bukkit.
However, it wasn't the case after a few more tests, and the culprit is most definitely Redstone torches.
This will at least allow me to play in my own town, though I can't exactly impose a server wide ban on RS torches. (They'd probably actually expect that from me, though. :tongue.gif: )
I have to thank you for discovering that, you've saved my ass.
Still, this remains a large issue, given that Redstone is a fundamental part in at least my own playing of the game (My character is a damned electrician!).
I recommend everyone tries this, remove RS Torches or navigate to a place empty of them, and see if it is the problem across the board.
If so, that will make it a lot easier to get it fixed.
EDIT: Upon further play (will teach me to post two minutes after finding a 'fix', it appears it doesn't remove it completely. I still get rather bad random lag, and it doesn't appear to be Redstone related at all, as I removed all Redstone items. Still, it did seem to help marginally.
Same issues here with the lag, and 99% of the map not loading. The Server i'm on just started up a brand new map yesterday, and its still there. Along with there being no redstone wiring :tongue.gif: Have updated and made sure everything was up to date on my end.
