CS 1.6 Low frame rate (20 fps)
Hi there,

in CS 1.6 Beta I'm having a very low frame rate (stuck at 20 fps constantly).
gl_vsync is "0".
I'm using the open source radeon driver (installing the proprietary one is not really an option).
I also set the vblank_mode system variable to "0" to make sure I have vsync disabled without any result.
I don't even think it's because of the vsync at all. The frame rate should be stuck at 60 fps then.

Has anybody got an idea?

try using either -nofbo or -nomsaa in the launch options.

Buy yourself brains.

The questions was: what is your cpu, gpu and resolution you use.

"-nofbo" as launch option actually solved the problem. Thank you! :)

It doesn't matter anymore now, but:
I've got a six-core AMD FX-6200
My GPU is a on-board HD 3000 (not that well, I know. But should be enough for CS 1.6 anyway)
I'm playing @ 1024x768

"-nofbo" also fixed it for me. Thanks.
