The latency reducing program
Posted 03 March 2008 - 09:06 AM
Playing on Blizz EU from NW England....
350-700ms (and above) down to 40-60ms.
I never see it peak over 100 anymore, and it actually took me some time getting used to buffering my fire spells instead of the usual 'spam the next key and hope for the best' 2345 setup, I see stuff in realtime now so from what I can see it actually works.

I'm running Vista. I did the Vista fix a while back and went down to under 100ms. But now I'm back up to 150-300 at any given time.
Is this still a usable fix?
I did all the noted stuff for Vista a cpl days ago. My latency has gone from 130-200, down to 40-60.
So yea, it still helps in 2.3

Type "regedit" in windows "run.." dialog to bring up registry menu
Right-click in the right hand pane and add a new DWORD value, name it TCPNoDelay, then right click the entry and click Modify and assign a value of 1.
Click Ok and close the registry editor, then reboot your PC.
Basically, this fix is deactivating the Nagle algorithm to improve your ping. If you don't want to do it you can just wait for the 2.3.2 patch as it's supposed to deactivate it too, but I don't think you can test it on PTRs right now because the updated patch notes from the latest PTR Build (7705) are actually for the upcoming build (7710).
This is an exact copy and past from mmo-champion, I still have it enabled on my computer with no problems.
This registry edit and the other one mentioned in this thread do the changes from that fasterping program which was linked. If you are paranoid about keyloggers and are comfortable editing the registry then you can just do the 2 registry changes yourself.

Does anyone know if it really works? and that it doesnt carry any viruses and whatnot? I really want to try but reluctant to use it because fear of key loggers lol. I want to see if i notice big differences in having 200~300 ms down to like 100 or something.
Im now sure where you are from but if you are from Australia or somewhere near by then www.lowerping.com kicks ass $6 a month and it drops my ping from 600-200

satellite internet? do you live on the moon? this sux for gaming. the fix won't reduce your latency very much. get another connection if you can.
I wish I lived on the moon, I'd see people more often there.

I'd like to give the registry a try.

Can anyone reputable tell me if the Curse version created by Phen0m is a keylogger/virus or is it actually legit? I *really* want to reduce my ping (around 300), but I'd like to do it without getting my account hacked.
Who's someone reputable? The dude that runs this site, Tyveris, is the one who linked it. That's not reputable enough?
Regardless, just downloaded it.
Scanned with Kaspersky AV 188.8.131.52 using virus definitions dated 6-14-2008 1:35:50pm EDT (GMT-5). Came back clean.
Further scanned using the service provided at Virustotal.com. The only AV engine that flagged it as anything but clean is Prevx1 having flagged it as suspicious. Though the Prevx report on said file seems completely wrong.
