    I'm using PUN2 if that matters.

    So my game runs ok on steamdeck, at a consistent 60fps. Everything runs perfectly smoothly EXCEPT we are getting position updates of our opponents only sporadically. For example we might get 1 now. Then another 0.15 seconds later, then suddenly get 3 all in the same frame another 0.3 seconds later etc.

    I have not had this issue at all on PC. On PC I get them approx every 0.1s (which is how often they are sent out by our opponents). Was wondering if its something to do with the steamdeck networking card? Has anyone else had issue with this?

    The steamdeck is successfully sending out its position to opponents every 0.1s, no problems there. It just seems there is some bottleneck somewhere for some reason when steamdeck receiving messages and I can't work it out. The PC players are perfect both with sending and receiving messages, so its just a steamdeck thing.

    Any help appreciated.

    edit: also I've tried on diff wifi networks
