    Alright, so its what I thought it was. When Valve implemented partial threading they don't wait for the thread to complete its work before joining back to the main thread. If I recall correctly from IRC. They send data off to the worker threads then call wait in the main thread (lol).

    Tl;Dr I'll try to reproduce the same conditions under the old kernel. However, we may have to roll back if I can't get it right.

    The problem with Turbo is the engine sleeps for Xms before checking if it should run. When ponging around with Turbo on, the engine does a pretty horrible benchmark at the start and uses that fixed sleep interval. I believe this will only lead to more crashes. If they used join I wouldn't be concerned, and we wouldn't have this problem...

    Definitely rolling back ASAP.

    Glad you got it figured out. ZM server had 52 people one but it went down to 24'is due to the constant lag. Some comments from the server:

    Rolled back to 3.3.8. Hopefully this is better.

        Yes, the certificate is self signed. What's the problem?

          clearly he's infected with tons of viruses now.


          or maybe he's just visiting a site whose ssl cert is unverified/self-signed as you said and that's chromes generic warning of this and he doesn't need to worry about it unless its a site where he has to enter sensitive/personal info like a CC or similar as this should definitely be done through a verified cert and a secure/encrypted connection... hmmmmm

            Yes, the Gentoo bug tracker uses a self signed certificate... Any idea if the situation has improved from rolling back?

              Yes, that is evident. No idea.

                Cool! Thanks for letting us know. I'd give you a cookie, but, well, yeah.

                Haha I thought Brian replied but he was replying to the other part of the statement.

                Well the effects are most certainly visible;

                A very high and stable fps.

                I think this is even better than the pre-rollback pic.

                Great work, w/e you did, I didn't understand half of what you were on about any way.:silly:
