    Post One more quick thing

    If u want the best fps possible on ur machine u can also use "cl_ragdollpysicsenable 0" this gives u quite a good frame boost.

    Back to the quick thing lol: Dont use any custom gun models etc.. in the game keep ur gun skins on the defaults because installing custom guns has more polygons and higher textures, even though they look nice the'll slow down ur game by about another 10fps.

    Default Counter strike frame rates

    HI,
    Right i get about 15fps in the video stress test, and when i play online as soon i come into any sort of battle it goes down to about 9fps and my ping goes from about 80 to 180. Im guessing thats pretty lame. I tried adding those txt documents jameson talked about in the first post and i clearly dont know what im doing, so could you put it in extreme retard terms please haha. Basically i guess when u said add them commands to a txt document u mean just copy them to notepad and save it as a .cfg file? or something like that, But i cant find this directory your talking about, dont even know where to look to be honest. I cant find counter strike in program files.
    Help me please. lol

    I'm going to update the initial post with a new config - Casey's Config. It's a well known way of getting better frame rates but the main site this is posted on doesn't allow Proxies which means most UK ISP's won't display trhe page so i'm going to do a full copy and paste and not feel guilty

    Default i cant get the autoexec.cfg to work idk why

    every time i load the game up nothing happens but if i copy and past it directly in my config then it works but after i close the game and start it again it is back to the old config i dont get it

    Below are some simple settings which can massively improve your source FPS without noticeably removing any quality (eg, 1% quality change for 40% performance improvement).

    I've tested this and it gave me a huge boost in frame rates. I now 'pwn' even more than before on public servers!!

    First, test your starting FPS using the in game video performance test inside source. Write down the score. Now do the following:

    1. Create a text file and add the follwing:

    fog_enable 0
    mat_bumpmap 0
    mat_clipz 0
    mat_specular 0
    mp_decals 300
    r_decal_cullsize 1
    r_lod -5
    r_propsmaxdist 1000
    r_rainradius 0
    r_rainsimulate 0
    r_rainsplashpercentage 0
    r_sse 0
    r_mmx 0
    r_3dnow 1
    cl_crosshairscale 1600
    fps_max 500

    Name it 'autoexec.cfg' and place it to the following dir: 'Counter-Strike Source/cstrike/cfg/autoexec.cfg'

    2. Either change your desktop shortcut icon for SOURCE or do "Play games" then right click and choose "Properties" then choose "Launch Options". Add to the launch line "-dxlevel 81". This instructs the game to use DirectX 8.1 which was much faster than 9 ever was but with no noticeable difference to Source graphics. Note, once you run the game with this once, to change it back if you wish, you MUST specify -dxlevel 9 to restore it. As it saves the settings and needs it explicitly set back.

    Now run the FPS test again and see the difference. Post your before and after results here along with your GPU you are using!

    Default ?!?!?!

    Hey guys, I guess you can say I'm completely retarded when it comes to these kinds of things, but I need serious help. When I ran the stress test, I had an average 25 FPS, with a flat 10 FPS in-game. That is bad.. I messed with configs, launch options, and all that stuff and managed to increase the FPS to 50 for the stress test, but it remains at a flat 10 in-game. My computer is pretty ****ty but I wasn't expecting it to be this bad on all low settings. Any suggestions? :confused:
