Instructions to fix BDO lag


Computer Performance & System Requirements

If you are not aware of  Black Desert Online´s system requirements and you do play on a low budged Computer, you will most likely run into multiple problems:

a.) You won´t be able to play BDO on highest graphics settings. If you are a competitive player you might have a disadvantage while fighting players that play on highest settings.

b.) Your Internet connection speed might be fast enough for BDO but your Computer performs too slow and can´t handle the sent and received data packages to the game server and back fast enough. This will most likely result in lag spikes and FPS dop.

c.) High CPU usage can occur especially if you enter high populated towns or fight in massive battles. High CPU usage is a major reason why you might lag!

d.) Virtual Memory depends on the RAM available! If your Computer lags on RAM Windows most probably can´t get the most out of your GPU. This applies to low-end cards on PC´s and Laptops as most of them share the available RAM´s.

How to fix BDO Computer Performance Lag?

1. Double check if your PC or Laptop meets the system requirements.

OS: Windows 7 or higher (32-bit or 64-bit)
Processor: Intel Core i3-530 2.9 GHz
Memory: 6 GB RAM
Graphics: GTX 650 / GTX 550Ti, Radeon HD 7770, 6770
Network: Broadband Internet connection
Storage: 52 GB available space

OS: Windows 7 or higher (32-bit or 64-bit)
Processor: Intel Core i5-650 3.2GHz
Memory: 8 GB RAM
Graphics: NVIDIA GTX 970, AMD RX 480
Network: Broadband Internet connection
Storage: 52 GB available space

2. Check if your motherboard, HDD, CPU, RAM and graphics card are a good fit in regards of the total constitution of your Computer. ( Your motherboard might be fast but your HDD is too slow to support that speed).

3. Use the Performance Recorder integrated in Latency Optimizer to record your BDO game-play to get clues about your CPU & RAM performance while playing.

4. Optimize your Virtual Memory.

5. Check if your drivers are up to date! Graphics-, audio-, network cards and motherboard.

6. Make a “Computer Latency Test” to check the performance of sent and received data packages.

7. Adjust graphics settings of BDO to “lowest” for testing purpose. Slightly increase them afterwards and see if the lag is gone.

Internet Connection, ISP & Game Server

Black Desert Online requires an active “stable” internet connection! If you play on poor or unstable internet connection, your ISP has technical issues or the game server suffers from high latency, than you will face following lag problems:

1. Login problems or disconnections from game server.

2. FPS drop in various places and fights.

3. Lag spikes while chatting, walking, running, casting, …

4. Game crashes

5. Mouse lag

6. ...

How to fix BDO Internet Connection Lag?

1.) Go with a wired connection! If you play BDO over WiFi or GSM connection and thinking on paying for gaming tunnel or gaming proxy service you just waist time and money by trying to increase the stability of your Internet connection with these services. You will be always connected over your ISP and your Computer on first place. If there is an lag issue, no 3rd party service will help you!

2.) Game server lag that results from high latency can´t be fixed by you! You will depend on the system administrators, game servers ISP´s and many other factors, but there is NOTHING out there that can fix lag caused by game servers! You just need to wait it out...

3.) If your ISP provides you with unstable line, weak signals or poor services you are doomed! Try contacting your ISP and show proof of the problems you face. ( You can use saved speed and ping test results reports from Latency Optimizer and the log file of the Performance Recorder)

4.) If you are not quite sure if its your internet connection, PC or Laptop, game server or any not proper configured internet connection settings, system processes or services you can download Latency Optimizer from here to assist you to find the cause of lag and most likely you will be able to take the necessary steps to fix the lag with this piece of software.

3. Game Settings & Operating System Settings

Black Desert Online does depend on your individual game settings and also depends on the healthy status of your Windows system!

1.) If you face lag in BDO lower the graphics and audio settings in the game menu. Yet, there is no guarantee that the fastest gaming PC or Laptop can play BDO on "highest settings". It just depends on too many factors.

2.) If Windows processes and services performing too slow the fastest gaming PC or Laptop won´t help you. But there is most probably a solution to fix lag for such kind of problems! Try Latency Optimizer to assist you to analyze causes of lag and there is a good chance to fix the BDO lag. Download here.
