    [SOLVED] Strange bug after installing source OP


    This is a really wierd one and didnt know where to post it..

    When my dedi server is up and running in console mode the server fps is at a constant 64.1fps, but when I start up my media streaming software TVersity, the server fps jumps to 700fps, when I close tversity it goes back to 64.1fps any idea's, I thought valve had locked the tick rate out at 66fps

    how is this even possible ?

    I have screens available if needed..

    regards

    It is possible for your framerate to be higher than your tickrate. Ticks will not occur more than 66 times per second regardless of framerate.

    What you're seeing is tversity starting up high resolution timer which is a gobal Windows setting. Since it's global, srcds's built-in sleeps between frames become much shorter. It's the same reason srcdsfpsboost works.
