#1 FPS drops post-Halloween update in Q/A Help

I bought my current PC (Ryzen 5, GTX 1660) last November, never had a single issue with fps until earlier this month. Now suddenly I have drops from 200-250 down to 70-80 in messy fights whether it's a 15v15 pub or 9v9 hl.

I've tried Comanglia, mastercomfig, uninstalling my custom HUD - nothing helps. I hadn't installed any new software prior to when fps drops started, and I already removed the w10 update that had been installed a day before. So my only guess is that it has something to with the new effects added in the latest tf2 update.

Is anyone else experiencing this issue post-Halloween update?

edit: I also have the latest drivers installed on my graphics card.

#58 why dafuqwizat didn't cheat: in TF2 General Discussion
DaFuQWiZaTI have been convicted however they are wrong, they also play in these leagues and therefore its a conflict of interest, I have been asking other admins to review my previous demos, the ones the convicted me for as I can categorically say I am not a cheater. Feels like a grudge to me

"they also play in these leagues and therefore its a conflict of interest"
None of the current AC admins would play in prem this season, apart from thaZu who is a sub for Athenaeum.

"I have been asking other admins to review my previous demos"
jbird and comanglia do not count, they are not ETF2L admins. The Anti-Cheat team made a unanimous decision that you cheated in at least one of the demos sent to them. And you have no way of knowing which games exactly you were convicted for (actually, no, sorry, you do - it's the ones you cheated in).

"Feels like a grudge to me"
Saying that and not elaborating is ridiculous. Who is that person holding a grudge against you? Who exactly on the AC team hates you so much that they are willing to risk their position and a reputation just to get back at you? Is that person(s) really that powerful that they can also convince every other AC admin you should be banned?
You're trying to stir this conversation into a "there's a conspiracy against me" territory, but the simple truth is: there is no conspiracy. There is no grudge. Nobody is out there to get you. A lot of people seem to forget that admins are people who don't really get paid for their work and do it because they love TF2, so if you want to suggest that every one of them is somehow corrupt you better have serious proof, mate.

Debating the validity of AC team decisions means undermining all the work that's been done in the past several years to catch cheaters and it's a really dangerous ground to thread on. There's nothing wrong with questioning the authority, only the thing is - this current AC team has so far given no indication we should doubt their integrity or professionalism.

Your integrity, however, is definitely in doubt, considering how much you seem to enjoy hanging with and around known cheaters as well as your previous ban for not uploading demos twice on ETF2L and the fact that since your current ban you've already been caught lying several times, most notably by saying "I've never cheated in any FPS games before" on porky's stream when in fact you had been caught using hacks in Call of Duty before. You also said on one of your streams something along the lines of: "I was never banned on RGL or UGC", but you were banned from RGL last year for using exploits (and apparently didn't upload demos there either if the disciplinary history is to be believed).

So even if somehow all AC admins made a terrible mistake or they really do have some mega bias against you, why would anyone ever believe your word over theirs?

#7 ETF2L Ban Policy in TF2 General Discussion

If saying mean words can warrant a 5-year ban then so should being a nonce or a cheater.

#72 You guys were right. in Off Topic

I haven't heard from Offside ever since he played for my Highlander Open team (where he was as toxic as in some of these clips) until he messaged me about two years ago apologizing for his behavior and saying he'd changed his ways.

Apparently he just did that to make himself feel better and earn some karma points, because reading his post here he sounds exactly the same as the person I met in 2016.

#1 Best server host for EU? in Q/A Help

So I was wondering which server host is still considered the best for tf2 in EU? NFO, Hiperz, something else?

Money isn't a big issue if the quality provided is good and it's ddos-protected.

#58 Ready Up: Competitive Team Fortress 2 Premiere in Events
DarkNecridClarkGreat documentary, made me tear up a bit.

I was a bit disappointed though that it didn't mention any game-modes other than 6v6 (highlander, ultiduo, bball e.t.c), because people playing them make up for a large part of the community. Highlander Community Challenge in 2011, for example, was an insanely huge event and brought in thousands of new players into competitive.

P.S. Any update on when it's uploaded to YT?

There's no reason to mention those, how or where people got into 6s wasn't even mentioned in the documentary (including even the 6s related events!) because it wasn't really the point of it and it would have easily bogged it down & over-complicated the docu to non-TF2 players.

To me personally the docu was about the strength of the community so passionate and resilient it has managed not only to survive against all odds, but to build much more together than could have ever been anticipated.
I'm not sure how taking a minute or two to mention the single biggest event thought-out and organized by members of said community could over-complicate things for viewers not familiar with tf2, especially since it was such a crucial moment for competitive.

#8 Audio issues after recent updates in Q/A Help

So I'm making this thread alive again, because it apparently only happens on some servers, and not others, but is nonetheless annoying af. Still haven't found a way to fix it though.

Setting snd_mixahead to 0.1 didn't help, still getting occasional glitches.

#29 HL Pugs Open Beta in TF2 General Discussion

From my perspective as a EU player who enjoyed most of the games I played on this website, this pug: http://sizzlingstats.com/stats/534925, was lost before the game had even begun because a few people who I don't remember the names of, spent good 10 minutes complaining and arguing (to their fellow americans, mind you!) about bad picks and continued doing so after the game had already started.

And, yes, scrambled is correct: there aren't any examples where EU players did worse than their NA counterparts, and in the pug above pretty much everyone played terribly, not just Europeans.

#1 Audio issues after recent updates in Q/A Help

I've started getting an issue lately where I sometimes can't hear the sound of my gun firing while there are some other noises going on in the background. It's especially noticeable when I fire at the same time as my enemy does.

Those are my audio settings:

dsp_enhance_stereo 0
dsp_slow_cpu 0
snd_async_fullyasync 1
snd_pitchquality 1
snd_spatialize_roundrobin 1
snd_mixahead 0.05
snd_mix_async 1
