I have a problem with my frame rate in Garry's Mod. While in spectator, I can easily get nearly 200 FPS. However, once I play myself, it drops down to 30 FPS or lower. Particularly when playing the Murder mode, I get 30 FPS as a bystander but it goes to 15 when I'm the murderer. As you can imagine, playing at such low FPS is a huge disadvantage.
I've played on various Murder servers and my frame rate is always like this. However, there was only one server where I could have constant 60 FPS as a bystander (and 30 as a murderer). This leads me to believe that my FPS issue does not have to do with my computer, but rather the game itself. I would also like to point out that my fps_max is set to 60. I'm just wondering if anyone knows a solution to this issue. And does anyone know why on this one server I get much higher FPS?
So far, Ive tried (without success): - defragging my disk - lowering game graphics - custom high FPS executable config - stopping all programs before running the game - using a game booster - setting high FPS launch options - verifying the integrity of game cache - updating my drivers

If you know any possible solutions, your help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
