Leatrix Latency Fix will reduce your online gaming latency significantly by increasing the frequency of TCP acknowledgements sent to the game server. For the technically minded, this is a program which will modify TCPAckFrequency.
You will see reduced latency in many online games including World of Warcraft, Guild Wars 2, Diablo 3, Star Wars, Rift, Aion, Warhammer, Lord of the Rings, and more.
Note that Leatrix Latency Fix performs a different modification to the 'Optimise Network for Speed' setting in World of Warcraft. They are not the same thing and can be used together (more information on this in the FAQ).
Leatrix Latency Fix is supported on these operating systems only.
Windows Vista (SP1 or higher)
Windows XP (SP3)
Both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows are supported.
Macintosh users should read the guide here.
Simply download the zip file, extract it and then run Leatrix_Latency_Fix_3.00.exe. When the program launches, click the Install button. You will see the status change from 'Not Installed' to 'Installed'. You need to restart your computer (or disable/enable your network card) for the changes to take effect.
If you're using Windows Vista or Windows 7 with User Account Control enabled, you will be prompted to confirm that you wish for Leatrix Latency Fix to make changes to your computer.
Your Windows account needs to have Administrator rights in order to install or remove Leatrix Latency Fix. If your Windows account doesn't have Administrator rights, you will be prompted for the credentials of an account that does have them.
After Leatrix Latency Fix has been installed, you can login to your online games with reduced latency!
To uninstall Leatrix Latency Fix, click the remove button and restart your computer.
For reference, the status line in the program will show 3 possible tags. 'Installed' indicates that all network interfaces have been modified for reduced latency. 'Not Installed' indicates that no network interfaces are modified for reduced latency. 'Partially Installed' indicates that some network interfaces have been modified for reduced latency. You will see this status tag if you add a new network card (or perhaps a USB modem) after the installation of Leatrix Latency Fix.
Errors and Unexpected Behaviour
If you have any problems with the program, please click here to send me a message. Include your operating system and service pack as well as any relevant information (such as error messages). You can also try version 2 if you prefer (available here). Version 2 requires the Microsoft.net Framework (available here) but the mechanics are identical to version 3. You can watch a short installation video for version 2 here.
