We've tried with a different mod and again with Promod - still slow.
We can't even try it vanilla as the host doesn't allow it!?
I can't see the issue here and my only conclusion is that the real time FTP updates is simply too slow.
If this is a server issue or server config issue it is difficult to nail down as obviously it's not my server etc, even though the client has done a lot of changes and reinstalled.
The chat log registers the text *instantly* as does Echelon and the B3 logs, what then takes a long time to process is the actual display ON the server.
That is taking anywhere up to 25 seconds to even display a scream test
I've been at this for almost a week and have pretty much exhausted all avenues I can, to test this.. I have even run B3 on a different machine = same result.
I have no more ideas as to what more it could be.
What IS worth noting though is this;
"with this host i knowing they host like 30+ server i play on regularly with b3 and the same promod version im using >< is why we chose them"
The only thing I can think of is a setting or an adjustment on the server.
I've had more clients since and two more this morning who are all using B3 on CoD and one BF4 with NO issues whatsoever -- I'm well and truly stumped this time.
