It's the shell affect, which you can disable.  Also, you might be able to
disable RScripts, which take up a lot of CPU.  Basically, Quake2maX is not
entirely optimised, so you should read the instructions (On Quake2maX's site)
and try to tweak it to some manageable level.  If you're down to 5 frames per
second, you should really try some other client for deathmatch, and save this
one for single player mission packs.

Try compiling the standard client for online deathmatch, then you can use
either at any time.

I hope that helps.
