Random 9 fps.

A Forum Thread for Team Fortress 2

I've been playing this for 4 days now. Most of the time I play on 12v12 and get 60 fps but sometimes I get 9 all the time, even when i'm in a server with no one in it. I even put everything on all low and still only 9 fps. Now the past 3 times I tried i ONLY get 9fps. D: Why??

    Make sure your fps_max is at like 100 or something, also search for any virus/trojan crap that will bog your computer down.

    Sometimes it is the settings on your actual graphics card. See if thats doing anything it shouldn't be doing.

    It's probably a background program eating away at your CPU/RAM. Like a virus scanner automatically loading itself for a quick check, or a virus loading itself. It could be something updating, or it could be something loading. Check your cpu/ram usage when your FPS drops. To do that press CTRL + ALT + DEL and click onto the process tab. From there sort things by their CPU usage. Hl2.exe is Team Fortress 2 so don't worry about that. If nothing is using all of your CPU power try sorting the processes by memory usage. Maybe an unstable program is leaking or something. Best of luck to ya. Kat_Fish

    I think it's my ping, I'm getting 700-2000ms... I have no idea why, I have a cable connection. And I have a ATI x1650.

    It's probably something updating itself in the background. Example Scenario: Your antivirus checks for updates, using all your CPU power, meaning Hl2.exe can't be processed as quickly, lowering your FPS. It starts downloading the updates, using all your bandwidth, meaning Hl2.exe can't download information from the server as quickly as it should be, so your ping shoots up.

    Turn on vertical sync. I used to get horrible fps but then it turned it on.

    I've never liked vertical sync. All it does is help you if you have a really fast graphics card and a horrible monitor, so you don't get shearing because the monitor can't update the image as fast as the graphics card is rendering it. V-sync sucks.
