So I got TW2 on Steam sale years ago, and like apparently a GREAT DEAL of people found the input lag so incredibly shitty that I couldn't play it for more than about five minutes.
There's an insane number of threads and Q&As about this online, and I feel like I've tried almost everything mentioned in them to no avail. I wanted to make a thread here because I'm sick of seeing 'sounds like your settings are too high bro' in the responses when the game recommends High and it's unplayable on Low, and I trust you guys to know what you're talking about a little bit more.
Last night I installed a new GPU and an extra stick of ram (bringing me to 12GB RAM with a Geforce GT 630) and this morning the game is as bad as it's ever been.
getting d3doverrider and forcing triple buffering, forcing v-sync, not forcing either, etc
Going into user.ini and turning off mouse smoothing, copy-pasting other people's settings to change the smoothing and stuff,
adding this "RenderAheadLimit=2
FPSlimit=60" to user.ini"
downloading d3d9.dll and adding it to the directory (with user.ini fixes)
and literally NOTHING works, and as far as I can tell nothing even makes it a little better.
I just want to play this game! There's like a full half second in between input and response in the game, and that would be unplayable in any circumstances but ESPECIALLY so in a game that's so hard.
Please help i'm giving up hope. :c
