So, I was running in a game today and I started rubber banding like crazy. Have played over 900 hours and have never had this problem before, and hardly get lag of any kind on any server.
Rust.exe process is showing as using 85-90% of my CPU, coming in at a usage of 1,000,000k. Typically it takes 5% or so of my CPU and runs around 100,000k.
Have tried all of this:
Restarted modem several times. Speedtest shows me at around 35mb/s - 20 ping.
Thought it could be a NIC driver issue, removed and reinstalled ethernet drivers.
Virus scans in safe mode all come back clean
All other programs local and internet work fine, even other steam games.
IP Config release/renew
Video and Audio drivers removed and reinstalled
Deleted Rust and downloaded fresh copy and installed
Restored computer to image from a week ago
In config, disabled all non-microsoft items and startup items
No other large processes running, Steam is the only thing open
Cleared %TEMP% files
4g DDR3 Ram
2.4gig G530 CPU
No windows updates recently’
Nothing has been changed that I am aware of at all with this machine since it was working properly
