With the normal game, the 1life game on the stock maps, fps isnt a problem at all, usually stays well above 200 at 1600x900 with anti-aliasing at 4x.
The odd thing is, when i go to play a mod, gungame for example, i do not get this kind of fps at all, sometimes it will dip down to 60fps. I know the game is smooth at 60fps, but still. Here's the weird thing, i turn all of my settings to the lowest they can go and the fps is EXACTLY the same.
The FPSjunkies who consistently demand 300FPS (Orange Box Engine's maximum) are few and far inbetween outside of their domain on the internet..I hope we've not encountered one.
Anyways, Sazza, do me a favor. Navigate: Steam (right click) -> Library -> Counter Strike: Source (right click) -> Properties -> Set Launch Options -> Type everything between these quotes, "-autoconfig"
Launch the game, then exit the game. Remove -autoconfig from the launch options, then reopen the game and join a server.
Also iv'e narrowed the problem down, the fps seems to drop when there are a lot of players, lets say 30 playing on a small map, not a stock one like dust2. but the weird thing is, when i turn the settings down on these small maps, i get the same fps.
The problem doesnt normally affect the normal game, just the mods.
ok, i just spoke to some people in-game playing stock maps, i was getting low fps there too. they say that i should be getting max. one said it may be to do with my cpu voltage, which is 1.45V for my 6 core amd1090t ~ 4.0GHZ.
I have no idea on what to do from here, please help!
It is only with CS:S to this extent, I am getting sub-par fps with all of my games it seems. I really don't understand, I saw someone post on the steam forums about his fps. He has EXACTLY the same setup as me, and on a 64 player server, his fps never dips below 300 whereas mine goes down to 40.
This has now gotten to a point where I am literally tearing my hair out because of it, the reason this is happening is unknown. Thankfully, I bought this computer off of a custom pc site, so I may complain to them. Thank you shadow for being of help, is there anything else I can do?
However, I'm beginning to think this might be CPU related, but I have a 6 core @4.0ghz. I honestly don't have a clue.
