I've been playing Identity V for days now and I noticed something, the game has some lag issues from ping spikes to micro stutters. In this thread ill talk about possible solutions on how to fix Identity V lag and high ping problems.

For more Identity V information you can check this post or visit the patch notes



Take note that there are factors attributing to the lag problems and you must know which is it before moving forward, it may be about hardware or network problems.

Network Problems and Fixes
First for it to fall on internet or ping problems you must at least have one of this symptoms
  • While playing identity v you will notice rubber banding, what this means is whenever you move forward after a few seconds you are reverted back to your original position
  • Survivor or Hunters are teleporting
  • Progress are suddenly undone
If you have any of these problems the culprit is the Network, but do not there are two causes of this name the following

Server Problems
  • This is where the game is hosted
  • if the server is far from your country for example if you are playing in the Philippines then the server is connected in EU or US you will notice lag problems
  • This will cause high ping and rubber banding
Server Fixes using regions
  • Make sure you are connected to your designated region
  • do not download apk that shows the different region ex. you will notice global, sea, or eu on apk you download
  • we suggest downloading the appstore version
Server Fix using VPN
  • Use VPN or proxy servers this will tunnel your game for better connectivity
  • note, if you are in Asia server, do not use western data servers this will not fix the issue
  • as much as possible select Singapore, Hongkong, or Japan for SEA players
ISP or Internet Service Provider like Globe, Smart, and PLDT
  • The Philippines has one of the worst ISP like Globe and PLDT, they fake their speed test results
  • Make sure you have a stable internet connection this can be checked on the modem you will a red dot which means the internet is bad


Detecting Bad ISP
  • First check if you are being data capped, you can detect with this simple maths.
  • If you are paying for 3mbps an ISP will throttle you below 1mbps meaning download speed will be below 100kbps
  • Download and open speed test
  • do not run immediately instead select a region outside the Philippines or your region, for example, select Singapore or Hongkong as this is where servers are usually hosted
  • Based on the results you will know your ISP is lying to you
  • Call them and rant away
Internet fix for WiFi
  • There are two types of frequencies for the wifi 2.5 and 5ghz, there is a big difference
  • If you are in an open house with thin walls connect to 5ghz this will have higher bandwidth however for houses with walls 5ghz will have significant drop so connect to 2.5ghz version
  • Enable QAS on the modem, why? this will maintain quality data stream however if the ISP is disconnecting or fluctuating this option will make it worst
  • Restart modem, don't reset just soft restart sometimes the wifi modem is overloaded of crap from all the users in the house
  • Finally, make sure no one is downloading or streaming as this take a huge amount of bandwidth


Hardware
the game has system requirement for a reason and usually, RAM is the issue however you won't know that hardware might be the problem so here are ways to detect them
  • Slow loading meaning when loading Identity V it loads very slow
  • Assets fail to load or the draw distance is smaller, meaning is the farther the item the more its not detailed
  • Game crashes, this is common since the game cannot compute for the next process it will just crash
  • Stuttering which is caused from high CPU usage
  • Phone overheating which is again caused from high CPU and GPU usage
If you have any of this symptoms it means you have a hardware problem

Some hardware fixes
  • Make sure you don't have any background apps running this also includes recently opened apps as they will consume resources
  • Remove apps that are bloatware
  • Clean app storage for unnecessary files
  • Disable phone vibrate
  • Always make sure apps are updated
  • Download official version of apps as some might have viruses
  • Turn Bluetooth off
  • never install battery optimizer apps as this are fake
  • Don't use animated wallpapers
This are just some of the fixes im using feel free to troubleshoot it further so Identity V may run smoother.

sa mga nakakaranas ng high ping o lag, ito tips ko para bumaba

off nyu data tapos airplane mode, tapos pag no signal na, off nyu airplane mode tapos on data, re open game, dapat swipe out nyu si identityV sa recent app

pagmataas parin ulit ulitin lang po hanggang bumaba

ganyan kasi ginagawa ko, pag nasa 500-900 ping, baba sya ng 190-250 ping

sana makatulong

I'm a neighbouring country of china. I have a good internet connection and I have used vpn, cleaning cache and junk files but nothing worked. I can only play before 8am and not at any other time. Ping i get in the morning is 350ms to 400ms while rest of the day it is +500ms. I have contacted the company, e-mailed them. Sent them messages on Facebook and also reviewed on Google Play but nothing worked. Please tell me if you have any kind of solution. I just need a ping of 200ms or near.
