Thread: 360 lock up due to lag? Your experience?

360 lock up due to lag? Your experience?

  1. Unhappy 360 lock up due to lag? Your experience?

    I've posted this issue in the bug thread. I was wondering if any of you have had a complete 360 lock up due to lag or disconnects due to lag?

    My first game on with the retail version with 8 people, everyone started to lag, then drop. My 360 hung on the disconnect screen. No input from anything except the restart button. Have any of you experienced this?

    Haven't had a chance to play 4 on 4 with the retail yet but the demo was fine. I played a couple of 1 on 1 last night with zero lag.

    Did this happen just once if so might have been someone with a bad connection

    I just played some 1 on 1 last night with no issues. The guy I was playing said that it told him to reconnect his controller once but he did nothing and it went away after approx 30 seconds. Might have been lag?

    I played many 4v4 games last night (about 6 hrs worth) and only experienced lag in maybe 1 or 2 matches. Other than that I had a great time.

    I had this happen to me a lot on the demo version but after 2 days worth of games it's happened to me again. It seems to only happen when someone else is slowing down my connection by downloading or steaming video. It shouldn't lock up at all from lag though.

    I experienced this numerous times on the demo, and a few times in the full retail version. it always happens between 12:00 a.m. and 2:00 a.m. EST. I have cable internet, about 4.8 mbps download, .5 upload. It's terribly frustrating, but this game is so awesome, I just turn off my 360, and start up again.
    This actually just happened to me tonight, right as I was unleashing the final salvo on the enemy's final carrier (with torps on their way as well, gotta make sure). I was having a good round, too.

    I agree. Why should the code lock up the Box due to lag? You would think they would be able to patch this. If you lag so much you should discon but not lock the box up.

    Yeah

    Happened to me twice, one time today. It was a 4 on 4 that had been reduced to a 2 on 2. Just two carriers and a destroyer on each side, so....

    This happened to me several times today. Also will happen when game does not connect. Happened today between 12:00-2:00 P.M. EST

    This has happened to me about 3 times now. It seems to lock up everyone on the maps xbox, as friends of mine on the map were not on afterwards.

    I played about a dozen games yesterday and a few of them (3?4?) were pretty laggy. Once it seemed like someone was using the [explictive deleted] standby(?!?)... I would have absolutely NO control... and suddenly the screen would start moving again and all the health bars would snap.... to where I'm near dead. Always against this one guy. Maybe I'm just paranoid.

    The other games were fine, and fun.(I was nervous and still learning the MP bits; but everyone was friendly and helpful.) The game is great when the conns (and people) are good.
