Severe FPS issues when NPC's spawn
I don't know if this is a known issue or not or even if this forum is still 'alive' enough but here goes.

So, my friend has been getting a massive FPS drop everytime more like 3 NPC's spawn.
We know it's not the server since he gets it on every server he goes on and his ping never exceeds 50.
I don't believe it's a hardware problem either since he can play the latest games without any sort of problem.
Also, it might be important to mention that he is unable to host himself as his game will simply crash.
We've tried to most common things as reinstalling, checking game cache and such things.

Anyway, thx for taking the time to read and any help you could give for this problem.

Is there any sort of errors logged into the console?
{-NAG-}Bombsquad Feb 8, 2013 @ 1:09am 
Not on my end (well none that seem relevant at least), I'll have to check it with him.
Is there anything specific we should look for considering errors?

Do you have any background programs running? like game boosters, screen recorders, or a new antivirus? also have you changed your spray recently? try setting it to default.

Also spin up your copy of HL2 and see if its causing the problem, remeber when verifying the cashe to do the same for all mounted games in this case hl2 and the source 2007 base ( under tools)
{-NAG-}Bombsquad Feb 9, 2013 @ 11:30pm 
No background programs or anything other then those required. And we are sure now it's not on my end. He managed to run his own server and he still had the same problem. I'll let him know your advice on the game cache.
{-NAG-}Rivier Kreeftje Feb 11, 2013 @ 8:35am 
did all game caches and all files for synergy, mounts are ok
games are installed and played

same ....
Edfake Feb 12, 2013 @ 9:50pm 
Try changing your dx level and modifying some advanced graphics options, thats the best I can give you at the moment, without being able to recreate the bug, It is difficult to know a fix. Has it ever run smoothly?
{-NAG-}Bombsquad Feb 13, 2013 @ 12:54am 
Well, he used to be able to run smoothly but we're talking about a year or 2 ago. He was able to host without problems aswell. I'll let him know. Thx for the help so far btw.
