Why is there so much lag in TCP/IP games? Even when i am the host, monsters still teleport around. Why? I tried hosting a game to play with a friend and he had terrible lag. Kept getting disconnected and his items going missing. And when we did the blood raven fight, i stood there hacking away at a zombie with 95% hit rate and wasnt dealing any damage whatsoever(due to lag). He's behind a router with firewall turned off. Any ideas on how to improve the lag? Will hamachi help? We both have broadband connections in a small country.
