[1.0] FPS drops with high 'wait for update' time

Post by NastyEbilPiwate »

Yesterday I started getting pretty severe FPS drops, down to as low as 5 sometimes, despite UPS staying in the 50-60 range. The F4 debugging info shows that a lot of the frame time is being spent in 'Wait For Update'. I've not made any software or hardware changes at all. A friend who also plays on this multiplayer server has no issues at all. What could cause something like this to suddenly start happening?

In multiplayer, the game will run multiple updates between rendering, if it starts falling behind the server.
