Hmm. Only noobs leave that setting on in AV programs. It causes hell no matter what you are trying to do.
too cool for this world (the steam forums), you are
thank you sir,
I did a little unscientific benchmarking on a random map, wich happened to be compiled with fast vvis. I seemed to get 120 fps at maximum, but could drop down to just above 20 fps when loaded up with bots. So I guess it would do fine on a normal map.
Quite a difference, I used to get about 60 fps at max. But another tip is to not join server with more than 24 players.
EDIT: I got 180 fps by staring into the void
I never thought they were useless, theres a few people on there that have useful stuff to say.
Il try this, i actually use Microsoft Security Essentials for Windows 7, and i like it. Generally i am smart enough to not get virus's, but this doesnt take up many recourses, and allows me to be more careless online. Before it i never had any anti virsus.
Il let you guys know if i notice an increase.
Solution: Stop running anti-virus programs.
Thanks for this, may as well give it a try.
What self respecting pc gamer uses anti-virus software?
i was having that issue, but it was like HORRIBLE fps issues. it turned out to be security essentials having realtime scanning. disabled that and solved my problems. i was SOOO close on ordering a new video card as i thought mine was crapping out.
Running AV software is like wearing a helmet on a bike. If you are aware of hazards and pay attention you'll probably never have it come into use, but when you need it it is far better to have it.
When i disable that, windows bitches around about Microsoft Security Essentials not being activated. Do you have any solution to stop those warnings?
i think you can disable notifications. dont remember how tho, sorry.
What foul excuse for a humanoid being with a soul doesn't use anti-virus software?
Someone else put it better than I did;
Any positive results yet? and Tinker, I'm scared now..
The ones who don't have girlfriends.
I can personally attest to the fact that the statement in quote tags is entirely false.
