HowTo / Notes

Workaround for low fps

Symptom: While playing the game the FPS drops periodically

Workaround: This seems to be a scheduling issue. After launching the game use "renice" and change the priority of the process to higher. Ex:

$ps -a | grep hl.exe
4477 pts/0    00:00:03 hl.exe

$sudo renice -20 4477
