Maybe this problem has been discussed before, but as the groups look like thishttp://i.imgur.com/FZdfg.jpg
to me in Firefox, the forum is almost unusable for me. By the way: Why isn't Valve able to write a sane stylesheet for these forums?
Team Fortress 2 unfortunately is nearly unplayable for me on Linux because of some kind of lag issue. Under Windows everything works fine with Chris' FPS config, I get very good framerates and a very smooth TF2 experience.
After installing Steam for Linux (I'm not a participant in the beta), changing the Nvidia driver to the latest experimental 310, installing TF2 and configuring it exactly the same as on Windows, I tried to play some Harvest.
Measured framerates and parameters are just fine (seem to be the same as on Windows), but there is still some kind of lag which makes it impossible to react fast enough. It's as if the game is displaying the scene just a little too late to have a smooth TF2 experience. Things just happen and I get the pictures a little AFTER they happened.
So in fact TF2 is unplayable on Linux if you really want to play it. You're in no way competitive on Linux. Is this only my experience or a known issue? Because it's pretty disappointing considering the hype around Steam on Linux.
