Hey everyone,

I'm having a little problem when I'm playing CSS. Every 3-4 seconds I get a lag spike, your first thought is get a better internet connection isnt it? But its not that, because its even happening on local LAN games.

I have recently got a new Radion X1300 graphics card, so my graphics are up quite high. Would I possibley need more RAM so my computer can cope with the graphics?

Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks,
bobbobagan

P.S: I usually get about 70 frames a second, but when I get the spike it dropes to about 20 Frames.

You did say you had the same trouble when hosting a lan game... lag pauses like this is normaly caused by a high tick rate setting in servers.

What is your system spec plz?? i know your graphics will handle it fine.

in console pressing "`" its in the far left top of your keyboard put in:

rate 20000
cl_cmdbackup "2"
cl_cmdrate "100.000000"

u can also make a autoexec.cfg config in the location of csss which is most liekly: program files/valve/css//"your email"/csstrike/cfg

and just edit copy paste your config and change the name to autoexec.cfg and now it does it automatically everytime u open css.

I had the same problem as u and now its all fixed =D
