    Hi, I am the owner of that thread. I just want to say it is not connection related. Just switched ISP and still have that problem. Also tried 4 other cellphone hotspots, still have it. Tried on 3 of my friends internet, still have it. My internet connection is 100down 5 upload. It is onviously not internet connection related. Yes it must be something with user end but it is not internet connection related. All my drivers up to date as well, I will try to get a older driver that might help. I just bought a SSD, that might help. When I try that I will give update. (using laptop btw)

    Has anyone tried turning off the UDP when in an on-line lobby? Or possibly adjusting the level to 5 instead of 1.

    Just a thought, can't hurt to try, and it's not hard to do.

    Tried turning it on, nothing changed. I couldn't turn it off in online lobby, there is no option to do so.

    It sure sounds like its network related. You are using a wireless cell phone hotspot to try to play a p2p game? Am I reading that correctly? In your original thread it is even explained why this may be happening. If its happening in multiple games, it is most likely network related. I know you switched ISPs but you are using the same hardware....

    I all, I've had similar problems and changed my UDP from Project Cars 2 to Project Cars 1 and it seemed to have a positive influence.

    Happy to help, just PM.

    I thought the UDP issue was corrected in a previous patch? I could be wrong though....

    Can you elaborate on what you mean by "seemed to have a positive influence" What were your before and after findings? How many successful races have you had with the UDP change.

    Also I am quoting your original post since you edited it. The common denominator here with everyone that is having issues seems to be slow speeds from their provider. You have less then 1mbps UPLOAD, that is pretty bad. That is the only common link I can see at the moment with those of you that have been having problems....... I am no expert by any means, but there is a pattern.....

    "Hi All,

    I am having problems with multiplayer lag when someone joins a session. I am receiving about a 3-4 second lag deficit and other players just pass me by..

    What console? Xbox One S

    Wired or Wireless? Wired via Ethernet Cable

    What is your providers advertised speeds? More than 10mpbs

    What is the ACTUAL speed you see on the Xbox? 15.43mpbs (download) 0.72mpbs (upload)

    NAT open? YES

    IPv4 or IPv6? IPv4 - Netgear router/modem (IPv6 disabled in Netgear settings).

    What is your ping? 31ms

    Digital download or disc? Digital Download

    What router and modem? Netgear N300 Wireless ADSL2+ Modem Router with Ethernet WAN I have an Ethernet cable plugged from the N300 straight into the Xbox

    Many thanks in advance."

    Interesting to note that ive been looking into F1 2018 and this game is also plagued by these same issues.

    When someone joins or leaves the session there is an incredible amount of lag and feezes. I dont own the game but have watched many videos of decent quality streamers and esports racers and they are having these same issues.

    Obviously its a completely different game and different technologies in play, but this highlights it as a major issue in the industry and not just with PC2. To me it also confirms that while the users connection specs might highlight the issue i dont think they are the sole cause of the issue and either the console or the software is the cause.

    It's just how peer-to-peer networking works. Some titles are better at hiding it. Some titles don't have it (i.e. bigger named/first part titles have dedicated servers for their infrastructure to avoid this sort of thing). It's been a thing since racing sims started online play back before 2000 on the PC. Unfortunately, most people got introduced into online racing via some the big players like Forza and Grand Turismo which are first party titles.

    I have been having the same issue, the game will freeze for about 2 seconds when someone joins the lobby. I run Forza 7 and Assetto Corsa and have never had this issue. I did a full game re install and turned the UDP off. I ran one online lobby and when people joined there was no freezing. I hope its worked and ill have to run some more online lobbies later to see if its a permanent fix or not.
