If you’re having problems connecting or battles or getting disconnected after joining a battle, we’ve found a utility program that may help you – it’s called TCP Optimizer, and it adjusts some settings in your computer to optimize your Internet connection.
You can download the program for free HERE. Please be aware that this software is not owned by KIXEYE therefore we cannot guarantee its functionality.
Once you’ve downloaded the program, open it up, and you’ll see a screen that looks like this:
Here’s what to do:
- Adjust the slider to match the bandwidth of your Internet connection. It doesn’t matter if you get it exactly right, but try to get close. Most home cable Internet connections are between 5 and 10 Mbps. If you’re not sure what yours is, you can go to www.facebook.com/diagnostics and let that test run – down at the bottom of the test results it will show your bandwidth.
- At the bottom, click the button labeled “Optimal.”
- In the box labeled “Time to Live (TTL):” enter 100.
- Click “Apply Changes”
- Load Battle Pirates!
Here’s another picture that shows you exactly where the things are that you need to do:
There are a lot of other things you can do with this program – KIXEYE recommends that if you’re not familiar with these kind of settings, ignore the rest of the options. Should you accidentally click something, just click the “Windows Default” button at the bottom and then click “Apply Changes” to restore everything back to normal.
