Temp fix: Very low FPS in TF2(multiplayer)
Hello Steam.
Many of You may experience super low fps when playing TF2(there are a lot of threads about this). Sometimes its 2-7fps, sometimes you got stable 60. When I'm joining a server i always got like 2fps. Dunno why.
I have found a solution(few easy steps!):

After you connect to server and you have low fps:
  • [ESC]
  • Options -> Video -> Advanced
  • <change something> for me it is AA or shadows.
  • Apply changes & wait for map to reload
  • Enjoy your higher fps!

Mine rig:
AMD Athlon II x4 635 @3,3GHz
4GiGs of RAM
GTX 460 - driver version 313.09 ;o

Do you have some custom config or startup commands? (autoexec or something)
Cause changing ingame options also reverts some of the config commands, mostly related to video settings.

Yes, autoexec. It was taken from window's tf2.

Well your autoexec is cause of your performance loss. I would remove all 'mat_', 'cl_jiggle' and 'cl_ragdoll' commands. Should fix the issue.

EDIT: You got wrong cl_cmdrate and updaterate values. You want those to be same or above your framerate (you got fps_max 60), since rates are linked to framerate.

Game runs fine on these 'performance loss' commands. Game works same without autoexec.
Thanks for protip.

@edit
i've just read it agan. WTF i wrote?
Game on windows works fine with this autoexec. On linux theres no difference between without/with autoexec. It lags on both :F
