Reduce Your Ping By A LOT

I’ve just made the small changes necessary to reduce my ping, and it went from 300-350 to about 100-150. So this really works, and the change is even more noticeable if your normal ping is above 300.

To start this process, you have to open your “Register-editor” in Windows. You can do this by pressing “Start” and pick the “Run” option. In here you type “regedit”

This will open up the “Registry-editor”. You will have to find your way to this key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SYSTEM -> CURRENTCONTROLSET -> SERVICES -> TCPIP -> PARAMETERS -> INTERFACES

Then there will be some large hex keys for your actual network adapters. You will need to click on the one that matches your internet adapter [it will show a ton of information containing all your network details, such as your assign DHCP Address and server info].

Once you have identified the correct adapter, you add a new DWORD 32bit named “TcpAckFrequency”, and then update its value to 1 by right clicking it.

After this, reboot your PC and log on Aion to find out your new and reduced ping! Share your experience with the rest of us if you’ve done this neat little trick.

Just a thread from my Aion Forum which shows how to reduce your ping if you’re playing Aion [Or any other mmo for that matter]

Possible lag fix due to routing – Aion Beta Forums

Open command prompt and run a “Tracert” to the below IP’s, If any of them connect to plaync.com without timing out, thats the address you need to use.

Quote:
206.127.147.28
206.127.153.247 (Seems to be most reliable, very low ping for east coast)
206.127.155.130
216.107.250.81 (Never mind the Europe part but its routing through ppcwbtn which has known latency problems.)

Changing your Aion “Connect to server”

1) Go to your Aion install Directory:
2) Open addcache (XML file) in notepad, it will look like this:

3) Replace the highlighted IP address with the IP address you connected with previously.
4) Save the file
5) Mark the file as read only
6) Run Aion

(Now lets see how long it is before people crash the one server that seems to be working)

I thought I share this with anyone who’s interested in it. If you’re still having lag issues with the Aion open beta, you might want to give this a try.

Get A Lower Ping?

When I wake up, the first thing I do is start up my PC and open up my Google Reader. Because I love Aion so much, I made a special map for it. Every morning I wake up, there are some useful bits and bobs in my reader and today was no exception.

I came across a delicious bookmark and the user bookmarked a website called Lowerping.com As you can guess by the name, this website or service promises to reduce you ping to the servers you're connected with. I haven't tried this myself and I've got no idea whether this service will work. But if you have connection issues with the Aion servers, you could try out this service.
