Someone on Reddit found a fix for the lobby lag

Weird solution, but it works: https://www.reddit.com/r/PSO2/comments/gsn90o/workaround_fix_unbearable_lobby_lag/

Looks like the official launcher is adding some command line parameters "+0xHEXSTUFF -optimize" and when launching it without the launcher or renamed, it uses "-win10" instead, which eliminates the lag.

Krisan-Thyme figured out the launcher was doing some oddities.

Hopefully, the development team will remove the offending parameters from the launcher.

To me, just looking at the parameters, looks like they left some debug switches or something on, which is causing the lag in the first place.

can confirm this works, i was able to crank the max models up on ship 1 to 50 and have a constant 100+ fps

The hilarity of this launch.

Yup, somehow this worked perfectly.

Yeah, I'm not sure how them leaving the launcher launching with debug switches made it in the release. I really hope they realize this and patch the launcher to NOT do this in the future.

It's crippling the game for no good reason.

@Nimble-Banana Is this against ToS (manipulating files)? Well too bad, we'll have to wait another 8~9 days for official fix, and just maybe tho.

no, it isn't, since you are still launching the game without actually modifying it.
