Depending on the benefits of our equipment, if it is not a state-of-the-art equipment, we must take into account a series of aspects to fully enjoy, within the possibilities of our equipment, our leisure time and avoid spending half of time with performance, lag or fps issues and among others.
If we want to put our team in optimal conditions to play, we must take into account a series of aspects.
Errors in graphics, in 90% of cases are related to the malfunction of the graphics card. If the graphic quality of the game, even at minimum values, does not finish loading the textures or half loads objects without a defined shape, it is a clear symptom that something is not working correctly It is unlikely that it is a hardware problem of the graph, so the solution is going to be found in update manufacturer drivers or reinstall the controllers from scratch again.
Lag is another of the most frustrating factors when it comes to playing. Lag generally occurs when our team is not able to manage the graphic level that we have established in the configuration options. In other words, we are asking the card to show us a graphic quality at a specific number of fps when it is not designed to do so, especially in current games.
When this happens, the action proceeds in fits and starts, hitting jumps, instead of doing it fluidly so that the gaming experience is perfect and allows us to enjoy without cuts. The solution to this problem is to reduce the quality of the graphics until we adjust to the level of fluidity that allows us to enjoy the game in cuts.
check the ping
In online multiplayer games, in addition to lag (which we have talked about in the previous section), we must also take into account ping. The ping is the time in milliseconds that elapses since we press a button to perform an action and this is shown in the game. The higher that number is, the worse the gaming experience will be. Between 0 and 50 ms we will always have the best gaming experience, especially in shooting games. Between 50 and 100, the experience will not be the same, but we will be able to play without problems.
Above 100, the gaming experience becomes unbearable. The solution to this problem, as long as it is not a problem with the game servers, goes through use an ethernet cable instead of a Wi-Fi connection, since latency is reduced to practically zero and there are no signals that interfere with the quality of the wireless network.
the game closes
Another problem that we can face while enjoying our favorite games is that they close automatically showing an error window from the game launcher, where they usually apologize for the problem, but without explaining the reason. In most cases, the problem is with an app running in the background of the device’s memory, an app that we’ve opened before launching the game.
To prevent this problem from happening again, first of all, we need to check if there is a new update of the game. Some developers do not allow you to play old versions of a title when they have released a new version and the game has checked for availability. If, even so, it keeps closing, it is recommended to restart the computer and as soon as it starts, run the game again without opening any applications on the way.
