I made a server with my friends a while ago and I played on it just fine. but about a week ago I started being really laggy on the server. At first, I thought "I must have settings too high" I turned them down, made sure I had nothing running in the background and still I get unbearable lag. I thought it might have just been a problem for my computer so I tried joining on a different computer and it didn't work, still got terrible lag. So I am pretty sure it has to do with something about my Minecraft account. Then I tried to see if this was the problem, so I joined the server on my brother's account and it worked just fine. after that, I joined the server on my brother's account on my computer, and it still worked just fine. I am SOOOOO lost. if anyone could help I would very much appreciate it.
initially I thought that too, because I am not completely computer stupid, when I first thought that I was like "there is no way that is possible" but it is the only common factor. So... are you sure because no matter what computer I join on I get immense lag, only on my account. I thought it was stupid too, I was like WT heck but it is the only explanation, because I can join just fine from a computer with my brothers account, but when I try to join on my account on the same computer it is terrible. When I say lag I am not saying like I freeze up every once in a while, I am saying I freeze for about 3 seconds every 5 seconds, I cannot break anything, I cannot hurt mobs and they do not hurt me. I completely cannot do anything. As for the specs on the host computer, I assume that's what you mean, I do not know them exactly, but it is good enough to run VR very well, no problems with that at all, so it is not a bad computer. Also as I said other people join just fine, so it is not the host.
