Hello Demigod community!
I've searched this forum for a while, but this problem doesn't seem to have occured before.
In matches with 3 vs 3 my simspeed is about 7 which is lower than on a PC of a friend of mine who's PC is slower. This is strange, but no problem. But with 5 vs 5 (all others are ai) the simspeed drops to 0 - 2 which is a lot slower than on the other PC. When playing on the internet on big maps with 5 vs 5 the simspeed is about -1 - 1 and scrolling gets exhausting. And when I play with the before mentioned friend together (who is behind the same router as I am) the game gets unplayable (only 5 vs 5 matches). The pings are always good, but the fps get really low. This problem starts with the beginning of the match and never gets better. I've tried /nosound and /nomovie, but it didn't change anything. Changing the graphics settings doesn't do anything either.
To put it in a nutshell, the game gets slower the more demigods there are, it gets slower if the game is an internet game and it gets slower if I play together with somebody who's PC is behind the same router.
My PC is good enough to play all new games and to normaly get quite a high simspeed:
AMD Phenom II X4 940
Geforce GTX 260
newest drivers installed
Win XP Sp3

My only guess is that the network chip on the mother board is slowing things down, but this seems strange to me.
I hope some of you know what to do about this and I hope I could make everything clear because English isn't my native tongue.
Thanks in advice for every help!
