Am I the only person who lags to death playing spiral knights?
Hey guys, there are certain ways you can reduce your lag, depending on whether it is graphically based or connection based. If it’s graphically based, there are multiple ways you can reduce the lag you have.
Graphically based lag:
1) Reduce graphic settings on SK to low. Make sure V Sync and Render Effects are off. Keep Compatibility Mode on, and
2) Create an ‘extra.txt’ file in the SK game files. I’ll explain how to do this later.
3) Check if your drivers are up to date, along with Java.
4) Try running Java in 64-bit! I’m not sure if you need a 64-bit operating system to do this, but I found running SK with Java 64-bit made a massive difference. To do this, download Java 64-bit from the Oracle website. To actually run the Java 64-bit however, you need to use a 64-bit internet browser. I personally use Waterfox, which is similar to Firefox but is a third party application.
