since the newest update release i would assume i have recently been getting these lags. it happens in the middle of a game or when at the end of a round when we all go down in versus and thus in the stage of loading the Data for the next round. i have my CPU OC'd but this has been happening since the update took place but idk if it's the update. seems like a Hardware or a program issue. programs i had running are... Anti-Virus Avira Personal Skype Utorrent Pidgin MediaMonkey+CD Art Display (Not playing music) Windows Sidebar Task Manager idk what the cause could be. Hardware Temps. are fine and cool. Edit1: to give you more detail about the lag (The game will stop and any sound effect will repeat for about 10sec. or more and then it will resume) Edit2: going to re-download and see if that fixes things Edit3: seems the re-downloading has fixed the issue. if it comes up again i'll be sure to let anyone know.
