Issue Report: TF2 sound stuttering and unplayably low FPS
So I can launch TF2 fine, but when I start a match, I get terrible sound stuttering. It just loops the same half second of sound for several seconds, then the next bit of sound, etc. I just started a match and the announcer sounded like:

Miss-Miss-Miss-Miss-Miss-ion-ion-ion-ion-ion-ion beg-beg-beg-beg-beg-ins-ins-ins-ins-ins-ins in-in-in-in-in thir-thir-thir-thir-ty-ty-ty-ty-ty....... and so on

If I continue and try to play, I get roughly a frame every few seconds.

This is a fresh install of Linux Mint 14. It ran fine for a day before this started, and I don't think I changed anything that should affect TF2.

Has anyone else seen this issue?

Same problem. Just installed Ubuntu, Steam and TF2 today. First time running it I got the same symptoms as you. 1 frame per second at best, and stuttering sound.

Some quick specs:

RAM: 20GB
CPU: 8 core AMD 3.1GHz
30GB HDD free space

Hello guys. The same problem with me, BUT when I launch the game by the Desktop, everthing works fine.

If you wish, colaborate on my thread.

Regards.

And BTW if I recall, the distro they're putting effeorts on is Ubuntu. I'd recommend installing it and giving it a try =)

I'm using Ubuntu, but I was using 12.10. I noticed that 12.04 LTS was the more supported version, so I installed that instead. Things seem to be running more smoothly so far. TF2 is downloading now - did not work from my SteamApps backup folder. Will update with any major news.

Same issue here. Mint 14 Cinnamon.

Had a very similar problem on Fedora 17 with nvidia driver 310.19. In various games (also in TF2) I sometimes saw an FPS drop to one frame per few seconds that suddenly appeared and could only be ended with exiting and restarting the game.
I updated the nvidia driver to 313.09 and the problem went away.

Turns out that my HDD was dying.

I am having intermittent problems. I have only tried the training and offline-with-bots missions, and 90% of the time the game plays smooth as silk. But the times it stutters are crippling. It is impossible to play like this. My hardware: i5-2400 CPU, 8GB DDR3 RAM, GeForce 9600 GT.

Elizium23: Did you try the 313.x nvidia driver? You description matches perfectly to my problem I had with 310.x.
Elizium23 30. jan 2013 kl. 17:36 
Lysius: thanks for the reply. Where can I get the 313.x driver? Do I have to download and install it manually? I had a lot of grief the last time I tried to do that. The best driver I can find through the "Additional Hardware" control panel is 310.x. I have been getting updates for that. I have precise-proposed added to my software repositories. (Ubuntu 12.04 in case you didn't know.)

Disable multicore rendering and vsync. Solved my issues. Using 310.x drivers.

I don't use Ubuntu. If there are no packages for 313.x, you could try to get the source package used to build the driver package for Ubuntu, put the new driver version into that and build the package with the desired driver version yourself. That is what I normally do when I want to install a driver version on Fedora that is not available as a package.
Getting the exact same problem. It was working fine a day or two ago, but i guess something updated or changed because I'm now getting the annoying stutter and a single frame every five seconds or so.

It's not a Ubuntu problem, it's a Steam one and specially Team Fortress 2.

Disabling Antialiasing resolved some of my problems

I've tried everything suggested here as well as everything i can think of, including reinstalling all the xorg, unity, and video driver packages. nothing will fix this problem that literally sprang up over night. =(
