    Hello there!

    So I recently installed Windows 7 on my machine and tried to play Warcraft III.
    Everything went smooth, forwarded my ports, etc. and hosted a game.

    Stuff went without any problems until I finally started the game. Everyone (except for me, obviously) encountered huge lags and delays in their games.

    My system and internet connection are more than sufficient for the game, and never caused any problems on my old XP, which was horribly bad - from hard- and software perspective.


    Any ideas?

    Starting the game on the same machine as the server is hosted will cause the CPU (and some of the RAM) to be used up too much. If you open task manager and look at your CPU, it might be around 80% to 100%, which would delay the processing of syncronization for all the other players. Well, anyway, that's my theory.
