#9 low pc usage, low fps tho in Q/A Help
Firethen i have to say i dont get how my cpu is the bottleneck.

It is and it isn't. Since TF2 uses so little and old multi-core/multi-threading technology, you're bottlenecked by your core/thread speed. Normally, 100% CPU usage is characteristic of a CPU bottleneck, but since TF2 is not made to use every core of modern CPUs in such a manor that won't happen. From the game's perspective, your CPU is completing its instructions as quickly as possible which would make it the bottleneck, but in reality the real bottleneck is the game because the CPU is capable of completing more instructions simultaneously than it is given.

To increase your performance you would have to overclock your CPU or upgrade it to another with a faster architecture either increases your individual core/thread speed.

#1 can't join koth_pro_viaduct_rc4 in Q/A Help

When I try to join DM whenever this map is on TF2 just stalls at the loading screen. I can barely interact with the task manager to close TF2 when this happens. I don't have the map, but if I download it from somewhere else it doesn't work any way. Is anyone else having this problem?

#1 alt tabbing to a grey screen in Q/A Help

I bought a refurb GTX 580 recently and whenever I try alt tabbing out of TF2, my desktop becomes completely grey. Thte same grey background that shows up when you ctrl+alt+delete. The taskbar still works if I click on where buttons should be but some windows are barely responsive. Reloading explorer.exe doesn't do any good. I'm forced to sign out/restart to remedy the problem. I tried borderless windowed mode, but then when I alt tab the game screen freezes even though the game is still responsive.

This doesn't happen in any of my other games. I dunno if this is related to newer Nvidia drivers. I'm on the latest version I'm also on Windows 8.1.

#20 Razer Abyssus? in Hardware

I guess the quality of these <$40 mice can be a toss up. How long ago did you buy yours?

I bought mine around 10 months ago and I had no issues with it until about 5 months ago.

If it does screw up that soon I'll definitely abuse the fuck out of the warranty as much as I can. It's 2 years so you could probably get yourself another free Abyssus if you wanted.

#12 Razer Abyssus? in Hardware

Just got it in the mail and first thought is I'm definitely liking the shape. Even more so than the WMO I would probably be using if I hadn't left it at home. I haven't had TF2 installed for a couple months now so I can't try it there but on the desktop I'm not noticing any issues with the sensor @ 450 DPI.

#10 Razer Abyssus? in Hardware
d_bive owned 3 abyssuses and theyve all been jittery pieces of shit

I've looked around and there's plenty of people complaining about jitter for both of the mice and there's just as many saying the sensor's perfect so I'm just going to have to try it my self to see what happens. I'll try the Abyssus first since it already has the 450DPI step that I use and if it doesn't work I'll just return it and try the G100s. I thought about the 2014 version but I don't think I'm really willing to shell out the money for it right now.

#1 Razer Abyssus? in Hardware

I'm in need of a relatively cheap mouse since my Deathadder black's left click is barely working now after a couple years. I've looked into the Abyssus before and apparently it had a few issues related to firmware I think which makes me hesitant. There's a newer version but that one uses Synapse which has its own issues apparently. Does anyone using an Abyssus currently care to chime in? Would the newer one actually be better?

Try using your onboard GPU instead and see what happens.

#5 Using a 16:9 resolution on a 4:3 monitor? in Customization

If you're using a Nvidia card open the Nvidia Control Panel and under Adjust desktop size and position make sure the scaling mode is set to aspect ratio. Unless you're making a video you'd probably better of leaving it at 4:3 than making everything tiny.

#8 Bootmgr error on startup in Hardware

Can you get into windows at all? If so try this in the command prompt.

sfc.exe /scannow

If you can't get into Windows or that doesn't work, then you can try some of the solutions from the Windows installation disc (startup repair or system restore if possible). If those still don't work use the command prompt from the disc and try these commands.

bootrec.exe /fixmbr
bootrec.exe /fixboot

If those don't work try this:

bootrec.exe /rebuildbcd

#30 Source 2 indirectly released in TF2 General Discussion
LtStevesince its a jump from dx9 to dx11 and tf2 has been out since 2007, i doubt we are getting a port. That will kill of a majority of the player base on pc requirements alone.

Nah Steam hardware survey says ~72% of Steam users use DX11 GPU's as of June. Just because a game is DX11 doesn't mean it has to be hard to run.

#6 Does anyone else see these? in Q/A Help
milour gpu is about to die

Not necessarily, but if OP isn't overclocking the GPU or if it isn't overheating it's possible.

#16 DPM as roamer in Q/A Help
viledpm isn't important. your goal is to be as useful as possible.

This is really all you have to worry about on roamer. If you guys are losing and you feel you aren't trying anything to prevent that, then change your game up and try harder.

#21 Google confirmed to buy Twitch in Off Topic

Every Twitch stream became almost unwatchable for the past 2 weeks again so I'm all for this.
