Well I have an odd problem that seems to occur in Killing Floor and Counter Strike (these are the only games I can play on Linux, so I can't test it on any other games). The problem is, whenever I start a game/join a server, I get extremely bad lag, but before I start it, when I'm in the menu, etc... it runs fast and smooth. Now here's the weird part, once I leave the game/server and go back to the menu, it lags just as bad as it did in the game. I've fixed the problem on Counter Strike (non-source), but adding these launch parameters
, I'm not sure that the dx parameters work, because it didn't start working correctly until I started it in Windowed mode. I've tried these same parameters with Killing Floor, but it didn't work.
-dxlevel 71 -no3d9ex -windowed
Does anyone know a solution to this problem or have experienced it themselves?
