Im from the states and I do not lag at all.

This is a common problem on SoulMS and ive helped many people fix this.
You see it alot when I host jump quests and people start complaining about how laggy it is.

Amazing enough im not lagging and neither are the people in the lead that win.

Unfortunately its not the servers problem, its your own so your going to have to fix this yourself.

Top problem being your Video card drivers are out of date. <----- fix this

other problems that can cause the lag
Your on wireless
behind a firewall
to many opened processes
someone else on the network is downloading anything
you never set a password to your wireless router and your neighbor is leeching it.
theres a unstable application running = Restart PC

Note: If you are running a integraded video card you need to download and install drivers for your motherboard not video card.

Question "how can I find out my video card type / name"

Start Menu > Run > type Dxdiag press ok > select the display tab and check.

all the info you need is on that page now all you have to do is find the correct drivers

example if I had a evga video card and it was a 9800gtx a good place to start would be
the Evga or nvidia website.
