Default I have remind people what REAL lag is

I've been reading alot of threads and people think 30-more FPS is lag.
NO, real lag is 10 FPS and below, I know because I had an weak computer all my life, until a few months ago, now it's decent

but yeah, 30 FPS in SS3 isn't bad but it's not lag.

Ultra CPU
Medium GPU
Ultra Memory

I got like 10 FPS-less in SS3 on my old computer (sold it, neighbor owns it now)

My new one can get 60 FPS average. (Thank god Croteam optimizes their games)

When I got SS1 TSE in 2002, the only way to play the game with a playable framerate was to look at the floor constantly.

I found myself doing that way too often in almost every game I played, maybe like 20 hours wasted doing just that.

TSE was the first SS game I got, I played the SS1 TFE demo ALOT and parents got me TSE instead, but I was only 8 at the time.

Hah same. Got TSE first, even though it was TFE I originally wanted first. But I actually didn't play the TFE demo, but the TSE demo a lot.

I think the word lag should be used for networking problems, not framerate problems?

Not really.

When your inputs are not responsive because of the frame rate, then it's lag.

The Mofo-ing Cambridge Dictionary Definition:
Quote:
lag verb (MOVE SLOWLY)
[I] to move or make progress so slowly that you are behind other people or things: He's lagging behind - I think we'd better wait for him to catch us up. Sales are lagging at the moment.
I think this accurately describes what happens when the game can't keep up with your inputs. The game literally lags behind. It progresses your inputs too slowly.

Well in English at least. In my language, "lag" is online lagging, while "offline lag" is the Hungarian word for "tearing", which is different than "screen tearing".

I'm a programmer, so "lag" means something is late, obviously..

The best way to get the game running was to put legs on it back when I used my laptop honestly. Fun times, fun times.

Default Re: I have remind people what REAL lag is

Ok, Game lag is a slower framerate, the game could run slower OR it could try and simulate more 'steps' (Like most retail games do)

Hang, on the other hand, is imput lag, and to be honest I've played games before that cause it and don't know how, I've tried creating Hang myself Via Game Maker and I can't do it

'Hang' is when the game freezes or shuts down.
