    steam - Weird lag problem on Killing Floor & Counter Strike

    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
    Code:
    -dxlevel 71 -no3d9ex -windowed
    , 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.

    Does anyone know a solution to this problem or have experienced it themselves?

    Hardware:
    Athlon 64 3800+
    1.75GB DDR RAM
    GeForce 7300 LE
    Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 32-bit

    This may be a dumb question but are you running the Linux version of Steam or are you running a version in Wine? Both of those games will run on Steam for Linux without any issues. I have played them both.

    I've tried both the Wine and Linux version. Thinking it's a hardware compatibility issue.

    Don't know if it's related, but try running it in native resolution.

    When I first installed Killing Floor it started up in 800x600 resolution. One would think that that would make it blazingly fast at an, albeit, decreased quality. I ran like cold molasses uphill, though. Changed the resolution to 1920x1080 and it ran like a dream.

    Generally that seems to be the case with games under Unity for me. It's either native fullscreen res, or windowed lesser. Fullscreen decreased res is asking for problems.
