Yet another CS FPS prob... TRIED EVERYTHING (help!)

By HAPYman

  1. Off hand I just want you to know that I read all the threads regarding this topic in this forum all ready; to no avail. On top of that I have tried every tweak I could find. I am very familiar with console commands and using cfg files. My computer specs are not spectacular (see below) but have never had problems until recently (been playing since CS 1.2). Also I am running on a CABLE modem with about a 350Kbyte dl and a 35 Kbyte ul. My ping tends to be stable at about 60-70 while this is occuring.

    Well here is the problem: when I first start a net game everything is running smoothly until after about 4 minutes of play. This is when randomly my fps will drop from my normal avg. of about 70-80 fps down to BELOW 10!! This has made it almost unbearable to play as of late .

    Things I have tried:

    - Virtually all CS commands, graphic, client related.
    - HLtoolz on the best FPS pre-set. (game looks extremely crappy and the same thing occurs)
    - that NVRefreshTool that someone mentioned in another thread that forces the computer to a certain refresh rate during game. (My max refresh rate is 85 kHz I believe)
    - Disabled Vsync
    - Newest Drivers
    - Using DirectX 8.1

    Here are some of the cvars I am currently using:
