    Unexplained framerate lag and disconnects...

    This never used to happen... (as in a week or two ago), but now I will very often get MAJOR framerate lags when I enter a new area, as in my framerate will drop to 0 for about 5-10 seconds. I can't even enter like cow portals or anything unless I see like 5 people go before me... Anyone know what might be causing this?

    Also, around the same time, I started getting disconnected going from act 2-3 and 4-5. Not like when going around waypoints, like if I'm questing and I just beat the act (2 or 4), and then go onto the next act. It drops me 4 outa 5 times.... This one I don't mind so much because there's no risk of me dying since I'm in town, but it's just annoying...

    Any other issues you having with your comp? Like running other applications? Issues with the hard drive accessing information?. Might be as simple as defraggin...but it might be something like a trashed hard drive or bad ram.... Win xp? 98? 95.........

    Win XP Pro
    256 MB RAM
    1 ghz

    I doubt it's the system itself really because it's not lagging like this on Warcraft 3 or Counterstrike....

    I just defragged last night so that's not it....

    Seems like since ver 1.10 came out I've had increasing problems with lag, lag related issues, and plain out bugs.

    Examples...

    *Sometimes I can walk anywhere, kill anything...but I can't pick up anything, take portals, or talk to townsfolk. If the game has been in play for longer than 5 minutes I can usually leave and re-renter ad everything is fine.
    *Often I get lag "stutters". While playing the game I get an unusually high amount of constant short duration lag (1-3 seconds). It comes and it goes...but mainly happens in Act 1 (but it can happen in any Act 1). Makes game play challenging, I'd be dead many times over if it were not for my mercenary.
    *Every once in a while I get a 5-10 second bout of lag usually when a large group of monsters attack, especially when they have auras...After the lag lets up I usually find myself dead. This always seems to happen when I 1st enter Act 5 from another act.
    *Sometimes I can't whisper to friends while in the chat rooms, but I can from a game.

    ...Just some examples. Do these things happen to you guys too? I never had these problems in 1.09. I really like the improvements in ver 1.10 but it's just tooooo buggy to be 100% enjoyable.
