I recently decided to give this a try for my laptop when I am traveling in the hopes that I can continue to play World of Warcraft without having to shell out for a more powerful gaming laptop as I have a powerful desktop to use when home. I have read a few guides, tips and tricks from several users and managed to get World of Warcraft playing fine with 6ms and 65 FPS in-game however, any other game just simply fails to run at all whether Doom or Stardew Valley (these are examples I just grabbed from my Steam library).
My connection when I work away is 80/20mbit and my home connection is 200/55mbit (this is down/up) which works flawlessly on my desktop and laptop outside of LiquidSky but when using LiquidSky struggles to settle properly.
I have an HP 250 G3, I3-4005U, 8GB RAM + Intel HD4400 inside of this laptop using an SSD (if this matters). As I said, World of Warcraft and other Blizzard games works fine, anytime I try to use Steam for gaming it lags, stutters and such.
I have tried 30FPS, 720p, lowering the presets, changing the CPU priority and affinity, hardware acceleration and such but no luck specifically with anything on Steam. These are both with wired connections that run without issue. I noticed previously that you could change the codec but in these new version that does not seem to be an option? I also run the games at 1366 x 768 the same as the laptop resolution.
Any ideas or help would be appreciated as I’d rather not go and buy a gaming laptop to play when I only travel a few days a month.
Cheers and sorry if this is in the wrong place.
Edit: I am connected to the London Data Centres with very low pings.
