Because some people cannot make maps for the life of them, they make very POOR maps, which will run VERY badly even on powerful computers. This is due to lack of optimisation.
Try your FPS in a valve map.
I have quite a powerful comp, and have had down to 30fps in someones map. made me shudder to think he never used a single func_detail ... eww.
I was talking about stock maps. But nvm, its fine now, i reisntalled css, runned the fps thest and got an avarage of 270fps. I even reach the 400fps. And playing online in d2 i got about 150 to 220 fps. Thanks. Another thing. I have speed fan. And it shows a System temperature. What is that ? Because when i quit css after one hour it was at 50° with a fire icon. Cpu was good and the other ones too
My pc is getting on a bit now , Clocked Q6600 / GTX9800+ But should be able to run games But like you sometimes fps will drop , there are so many variables , program running , background events comp temps , as Zeph stated even the bridges they get bloody hot! There normaly just a lump of aluminium to dissipate the heat , could be down to air flow in the case , room temp or even dogey drivers so many things. Or just a bad map
Bhop_mist and bhop_mist_2 i believe never had a single func_detail and now on this newer computer i understand why everyone rages :/
but over the years i have since realised , and in bhop_mist_4 you will start to see more optimisation and it runs really well both server and client while maintain good frame rate New map im working on is running fantastic with optimisation - went back though all the old tutorials i followed to remember everything i forgot and picked up on new things
