I have a top of the line PC, using Linux, so ZERO possibility of viruses or other typical Microsoft malware...
I made this huge 5 player map in FlaME, it's 160 by 250 with lots of details, water, scavs have lots of structures, etc.
Skirmish game play lags and FPS drops to 8 or even 4 at times.
I tried lowering FSAA to x4, x2 or OFF, same thing. I tried V-Sync both on and off, I even reduced Texture Size from 2048 to 1024, same problem.
I cannot imagine what can cause this, so please help...
Here are my Gaming PC specs:
OS: Linux Mint 18 Sarah MATE 64-bit
MOTHERBOARD: Gigabyte Z97X-Gaming 7
CPU: Intel Core i7-4790K CPU @ 4.00GHz × 8 (quad core with hyper-threading) - Liquid cooled with a Thermaltake Water 2.0 PRO 120mm radiator
RAM: 32GB DDR3 1600 MHz (4x8GB) of G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series
GPU: EVGA Superclocked nVidia GTX 960 with 2GB GDDR5 - soon to be upgraded to a GTX 1080
Two SATA III @ 6 GB/s Toshiba SSD Drives: one 128GB Toshiba SSD mounted as "/" (ROOT), for Linux OS System Files and one 960GB Toshiba SSD mounted as "/home", for my User Home Folder (Personal Files and Settings).
NOTE: This PC also has 3 additional internal storage SATA III @ 6 GB/s HDD of 2TB, 5.6TB and 6TB respectively, used for storing all my Movies, TV Series, music, pictures, lots of Live-Install ISO files of various Linux Distros, etc.
PSU: 850W Gold Rated Thermaltake Smart Series - Fully Modular PSU
All of the above is housed in a cool Rosewill THOR Gaming ATX Full Tower Computer Case
NOTE: This Rosewill THOR case is considered among the very best, by having lots of space and excellent cable management as well as good peripherals quick change capabilities.
All of the above mentioned features of the THOR PC Case amounts to having an excellent air flow and cooling, which is also provided by 3 huge 230 mm fans (one RED LED 230mm fan in the front, one each 230 mm topside and side panel).
Another 120 mm fan is mounted at the bottom, next to the PSU.
I built this gaming PC myself, with parts I purchased online, from Newegg.com and Amazon. Building computers is my one and only hobby, I have a total of 7 desktop PCs around the house, but this one is my main machine...
And I am strictly an Intel + nVidia guy, never used any AMD/ATI GPU in my entire life, and only have one AMD CPU based PC, which I built out of pure curiosity, back when the "new" AMD Bulldozer Series was launched and praised to the max as being a worthy competitor to Intel Core i CPUs (which ended up being just a big load of crap).

GPU Temp of 43°C is with WZ2100 running idle in the background while I type this post, normal GPU temp is 29°C to 32°C with just web browsing and other light duty stuff running.
Last, but not least, can someone please post a Terminal command to launch WZ2100 using more than the default one single CPU Core (like 4 maybe)??
