Official Team Fortress 2 Game Nights (PC)

TF2 is very very choppy (no lag issues, ping is normal) and crashing lots as well.
Not sure why this is. Anybody else having this issue?

Could be a number of things. Do you know if anything is running in the background on your computer? Antivirus scans, updates...etc

Things were fine. Then from one moment to the other, all bad. Nothing in the background scanning either. Checked the usual suspects.

Next time it does it do a ctrl-alt-del and see what your CPU usage looks like in task manager.

Around 80%

Are there any other processes using much cpu besides hl2.exe?

I have skype and FF open, but it's the same if they are not running at all.

Getting around 50 to 60fps. Not great. Then again, it is a laptop.
I will have a look at the videocard and the paste in between the GPU and cooler.
Maybe it isn't conducting enough anymore and needs to be refreshed with new paste.
It should have more fps all in all. It's an i5 (only 2 real cpu-s though) and NVidia M330 vidcard.

Maybe check to see if there's some kind of throttling going on. Could be Windows being stupid and thinking now (during tf2 with all the cpu activity) is a good time to throttle something.

Probably every here but me knew this already. But if you put your cross hair on your team mate (or when dead following him), you get to see what weapons/items he has selected. Today I accidentally found out that pressing 'F' will let you cycle through his whole layout.

Good times on the pub.

Fun games tonight. I fear with Borderlands 2 releasing this week that a TF2 drought is close by. Oh well I know we'll all be back in here for the Halloween event.

I know you were upset because my team is beating your in Platinum but did you have to shoot me in the head so many times?

So you could feel the anger through the internet?

No money for it yet, so I will be fine lol
Plus, I feel that my laptop is starting to lag now in speed. Won't touch games like that and having to put the detail down all the way. Not worth it.

Holy cow, I don't think I've ever come as close to hitting the rage quit threshold as I did yesterday afternoon. I dunno what my deal was, but I could not seem to do anything right. It didn't help that Mantid and Sparhawk ended up on the other team and eventually so did Cartoonin. At the end of one round I peeked at my score and I had 10 deaths and zero kills. I was ready to bail in frustration, but then switched to medic and finally started to redeem myself a bit.

Of course, I had to bail just as the rest of you started showing up. Probably for the best, I suppose.

Can I get added to the steam TF2 group? I'm kinda late to the game

Steam name is mastj

Thanks!

Like a bullet through my skull.

Whaaaa, no way, I didn't know that. I'll have to try it out later tonight.

Yeah, but WalMart greeters are not hiding a caber in their other hand....

It's not his fault GWJ holds him to a higher standard than WalMart!

TF2 crashed again. I guess a good time to go to bed.
