"Aion" is a popular MMORPG where players are one of several classes that do battle, collect items and gain skills. Lag, the symptoms of which are typically choppy game play and a high ping, can be caused by several different things, including game settings but also your computer or your Internet connection.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Close any superfluous applications that are running on your computer before you begin playing "Aion." Applications like web browsers and file sharing software take up computer resources, which cause "Aion" game play to become choppy and give the appearance of lag. These applications might also be using Internet bandwidth, which also cause lag.

  2. 2

    Move your computer closer to the router or the router closer to your computer, if you have a wireless Internet connection, to ensure that the connection is optimal. A weak wireless signal can degrade the quality of the connection and cause lag problems. Also investigate the immediate area surrounding the router for other devices, such as wireless telephones, that emit wireless signals and may be interfering with the Internet connection.

  3. 3

    Set a password on your wireless router if you do not already have one. Other people may be connecting to your router and using bandwidth, which can cause lag in games such as "Aion." Taking security precautions like setting a password ensures that other people will not interfere with your gaming experience, and also that nothing illegal will be done via your Internet connection.

  4. 4

    Open Aion and enter a server. Press the "Escape" key to access the game options. Click on the "Graphic Options" tab and click "Auto Detect," which will optimise the graphics settings based on your computer hardware.

  5. 5

    Try out the new graphics settings. If the lag problems are not fixed, go back to the graphics options and gradually lower the various graphic settings until you reach a point where the game play experience is satisfactory, both in terms of graphic quality and lag.
