Tab / FPS drop

Starting a week ago my frames have been dropping. but only when i press tab to view scores/player names - and when the game announces in in-game text " a queen has spawned " ect.

How can I fix this?

What are your specs / driver versions?

Try this:

  • try changing the settings of your graphics card like "Threaded optimization = off".
  • in your AVP2 command line add +windowed 1 to play in window mode.
  • downgrade drivers (or hardware Tongue)
  • use a virtual machine to play if nothing else works
    it'll work flawless if your CPU supports Virtualization (you may need to enable it in the BIOS).

I get lag when I press tab but I suspect it might be the MS patch 2.0 that causes it. I'm not really sure; all I know is that I never had issues with that until I installed the patch.

Edit:

Try uninstalling the MS Patch 2.0 and test without it. Then install the patch and try it again. If it is then the problem isn't just affecting me and a few other people.
