Counterstrike: Source TWEAKS run it better!

Hi, I have a go6600 on my Toshiba G25. When I first played cs:s I got around 60 fps, which droped dramatically (10-20) when there was a lot of gunfire and smoke grenades. I scowered the internet for all the cvar commands that would give me better performance but very minimal quality loss b/c I wanted the game to look as good as possible.

For those of You who dont know how to implement these commands, you have to go into:

C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\*account name*\counter-strike source\cstrike\cfg and create a notepad document called autoexec.cfg (u need the .cfg there). In the document u put all of the commands.

These Are the commands:

cl_c4dynamiclight "1"

fog_enable "0"

cl_cmdrate "45"

cl_updaterate "45"

cl_rate "9000"

cl_show_bloodspray "1"

violence_agibs "1"

violence_hgibs "1"

violence_hblood "1"

violence_ablood "1"

cl_downloadfilter nosounds

fps_max "300"

cl_ejectbrass "0"

cl_showfps "2"

rate "20000"

cl_ragdoll_fade_time "4"

dsp_slow_cpu "1"

sv_forcepreload "1"

cl_forcepreload "1"

r_fastzreject "1"

Copy and Paste these exactly how you see them into the autoexec.cfg

After using these commands, I get 70-90 fps smoothed (smoothed which basically means good looking fps not raw which goes to around 200fps). 50-60fps with a lot of gunfire and smoke grenades, and 120-140 fps looking at a wall!

cl_cmdrate "45" --- These command have to do with your internet connection I have a cable connection

cl_updaterate "45"--- 6mbps, but you may have to lower these numbers if your connection is slower

cl_rate "9000" ---- You don't need to raise these numbers b/c these are pretty much max. Too much

rate "20000"----- and your ping sucks

These aren't commands which are specific to the go6600, they will work for other cards as well. And If you need more performance and less quality, just tweak the settings to your liking or google cs:s tweaks.

Im using the 81.95 drivers also, but this is not a big necessity.

Oh Yeah, and can someone give me any instructions on how to overclock my beast?

Nice posting there, I have mentioned your post in the HL2 topic, any other suggestions for these tweaks?

(want me to put them in HL2/CS:S main thread 1st post?) :) :)

Oh, and the OCing discussion of course has been continued in that other thread.

Hey i just got a dell XPS M170 laptop and and i have the same FPS problem with HL2, DOD:S, and CS:S. Do you think those tweaks would work with my Geforce 6800 Go Ultra? This is really begining to frustrate me, and the game looks great, its just really hard to play with horrible spikes.

They should, afterwards might want to tweak to turn some effects back up, you do have a decently fast GPU after all.

Yeah these will definately work with a 6800 or for that matter, any gpu

One suggestion,

Instead of cl_showfps 2 try using net_graph 5

It gives tons more information while playing.
