I haven't played any of these in the last couple of months so I decided to download all the updates and the new Lost Coast map. After all the updates etc, I went into a Counter-Strike map and while playing I started getting these hic-cups or stutters, whatever you call them. I then played the Lost Coast map and same thing. Mind you, before all of the updates I never encountered this before. Since its happening in all the different games, I'm suspecting the engine. Am I the only one with this problem or have others encountered it too? Should I just reinstall HL2 and everything else? Don't know if thats too drastic. Any help would be appreciated. P.S. Just installed the new 81.95's and still same problem.
