Since the new streamer update I’ve been unable to properly play any games (generally FPS ranging from old school CS and half life to ARMA3). The problem presents as an apparent lag that gets worse over time. It can be improved by alt-tabbing to the skycomputer desktop for a few moments and then back to the game, but only fixes the issue for approximately 10 seconds.
Further investigation shows an interesting situation where the sounds from the game (e.g during intro sequences) are being produced correctly and at the right time, with the rendered game lagging further and further behind, out of sync. I can move my mouse during a sequence and the view angle changes 15 seconds later.
There is also a very high loss rate (30-45%), which seems to get worse when more action is visible on the screen, although I’m using exactly the same settings and hardware as I used to before this became a problem.
