Some games run at 30x speed: accused of hacking.

Hi, I'm not sure where I should ask this but...


Some of my games run EXTREAMLY fast for no reason. Everything I do is sped up but a huge margin.

I run faster
I shoot faster
I reload faster
Cutscenes are faster

Even if I'm playing online, everything I do is 30x faster, while everyone else does things at normal speed.


The games that I have this problem in:

-Team Fortress 2
-Garry's mod
-Grand Theft Auto: Vice City


Not not too sure what I'm supposed to do here...

At first I thought it was a source thing, but them I remembered that I DON'T have this problem in Counter Strike: Global Offensive

And Vice City obviously doesn't run on source...


Can anyone help? I'm not sure what to do...

Actually, This problem started after I reformatted my computer, haha. I don't even have the slightest idea what the problem could be.

Wasn't this a problem with the first Far Cry if you overclocked?

I've heard about the faster TF2 problem before,are you overcloking?

Are all the drivers installed?

Are you ABSOLUTELY SURE that no one installed a cheat on your computer?

Did you download anything shady from the Internet?

I once saw something similar on a LAN-party with an old version of Counter-Strike - setting the process to one CPU-core using the task-manager helped.

OP could try this (task manager, processes, right click on hl2.exe/gtaiv.exe,find the according menu point, assign one CPU). But it could slow down your games, especially gtaiv...

Installing new motherboard/chipset-drivers is a good/better idea, too.

I'm positive that no cheat-devices are on this computer.


A lot of people in the "Steam Help" forum suggested that I find my chip-set and download the drivers for that (Before the thread got locked for no reason while I was asleep... and nothing was resolved)


I'll try that when I get the chance.


Someone else suggested reinstalling windows again... But I'm not sure how much help that would be if thats what caused the problem...

Sounds to me like the games are running fast proportional to your frames per second.

Try enabling vsync (If you got Nvidia, force v-sync through control panel, same goes for Radeon)

You need the AMD CPU driver.

This did happen earlier with games that cant handle Multi threaded Cpus Right

Its like a Game boy color that you Over clock ( its desired for standard clock ) and the games Runs extreme faster ( search on yotube game boy color overclock )


the same is with Multi cores if the game doesnt handle them right this can happen


Ask the steam support to stay safe

still i dont think it will trigger vac

Your computer clock is running too fast, i'm honestly suprised that newer games are still affected by this.

I would say it is your clock. Have you overclocked?

Hmm. If you're using anything which alters the speed of your CPU, turn it off.
For example, AMD's Cool'n'quiet. You could try changing the power mode in Windows (7) up from power saver or balanced to high performance. If I remember right, they tied it into being enabled when using one of those. Kind of similar for XP, too.
I do not know what Intel does.

It's a driver issue, install the chipset drivers for your CPU/Motherboard. Also go into the BIOS/UEFI and load optimised defaults, then set your boot preferences, etc.
