game looses connection
Hi ive been playing for some time now and not had any issues. about a month ago this problem came up and i cant find any one else who has the same problem or a fix. basically every match starts out fine and i get to around the medieval age and then loose connection. i dont loose internet as i am on teamspeak at the same time and dont loose connection to that at anystage. we then all reconnect and tried again but it kept loosing connection almost every other turn. just got a bit crap to play really. i put it down to rubbish internet for that 1 night, and have since tryed with other people but the same problem comes up every time. gets to medieval stage and connection drops. this is both with and without the patch and the game used to run fine up untill about a month ago.
any one out there have any ideas or pointers??
This is a networking issue, and as such, is all but impossible to assist with over the internet.
It can be ANYTHING, from a bad wiring job at your house, to failing components ANYWHERE in the line, to something far outside your house, like a local hub of your ISP dropping or filtering packets
its just weird as my internet stays up because i stay connected to teamspeak. the chat doesnt even have a break either
Networking and internet are a funny beast.
Different protocols, travel in different ways, are filtered in different ways, and can be disrupted in different ways.
They are also affected by different levels of packet loss, and many other things.
And then the network implementation in CiV might not be top notch...
