Thumbs down Any Help with Team Fortress 2?

Hi, i play TF2 alot (well only just recently been getting into it but...) So Im playing and then I freeze for about 5 seconds every couple of minutes... Whenever there's alot of things going on... Example: If two people get killed at once ill freeze up and the sound will loop (like a 1 second piece from the music will loop and loop so i hear the same music for like 5 seconds) and then it goes normal... I went into TRAINING MODE!!! and it still did it so i assume it's some sort of Computer thing... I have an intergrated graphics card but i dont think thats it see.... I play COD MW2 low settings so i think TF2 low settings would be fine... If there are any tips or system settings that im missing, please help

Re: Any Help with Team Fortress 2?

It just sounds like performance issues, tbh. What is the spec of your PC? I can't say I've had the same issues, and my PC is no spring chicken!

Re: Any Help with Team Fortress 2?

Well i got 3.8 Ghz and a low quality graphics card but i have a feeling it's more to do with bad system settings and maybe a wrongly functioning program? I have a prettty bad card but like i say, I can run COD MW2... Any system functions and steps you can recommend?

Re: Any Help with Team Fortress 2?

You tried using an fps config, see if it improves your performance?

EDIT : Going to post the details anyway just incase

Great config generator, throws you a zip file ready to be extracted directly to your tf2 folder, and also gives you launch options for entering into steam, big big help.
Id suggest leaving it on the default Chris's Highframes config, setting your keybinds and anything else you may want, then using the launch options as detailed at the bottom of the page.
I would also uncheck force shadows and facial features, and any others related to performance.

TF2Mate Config Generator - http://clugu.com/tf2mate/

Let us know how you get on!

Re: Any Help with Team Fortress 2?

Sadly it sounds like your hardware, I have a had tf2 running on one of my laptops and that had a nvidia mobile gfx card in it equivalent to a 7800 I think and it ran tf2 badly Even under low settings, also when it got hot it lagged like crazy.

Sorry no specific help but I am sure exos config would of helped.

To play TF2 at a decent "playable" level I would want an FPS of arounf 40 to 50.

25-30 is not good for modern games.
