how to make CFG

Mouse acceleration
I strongly recommend turning this off. It just makes it harder to aim. To turn it off, the first thing you should do is go into the console and type:

/cl_mouseaccel 0

Here I'll go through some tweaks that can help boost your FPS (frames per second). A good FPS can make a world of difference; it's just damn hard to shoot enemies if they keep "warping" across your screen.

Your FPS is determined mainly by 3 things:

CPU clock speed (ghz)
Graphics card
RAM
Now before you begin tweaking, make sure to add "cg_drawfps 1" to your config, so you can see your frame rate.

set com_maxfps <n>
This lets you cap your FPS to some value. Due to numerical error in the Q3 engine, trickjumps work best at a steady FPS of 43 (good), 76 (great), or 125 (best). So if you want a steady FPS of 76 for example, then try to get your average FPS to be something like 80-90 (set com_maxfps to some really big number while you're doing this so you can see you`r true FPS without capping). Then once you are satisfied with the performance, add "com_maxfpx 125" to your config to cap it.

Ex: set com_maxfps 125

set r_picmip <n>
The bigger n is, the crappier your textures look, but it may improve performance on older video cards. Default value for n is 1. Allowed values are from 0 to 3.
Ex: set r_picmip 3

set r_picmip2 <n>
Similar to r_picmip. The default is already 3, so I don't see any reason to change it. You might be able to get better quality by lowering it, but as far as I can tell, the difference isn't noticeable.

set cg_wolfparticles <n>
This is 1 by default. If you notice your system slows down any time an airstrike goes off, then set this to 0. Besides boosting your FPS, turning off particles will also let you see through airstrikes more easily so you can shoot at people on the other side. The only disadvantage is that, without particles turned on, you might run into artillery strikes more often.

One option is to create a toggle script:

Ex: bind "key" toggle cg_wolfparticles

set cg_atmosphericeffects <n>
Turns on/off effects like rain or snow. There's really No reason why you would ever want this to be on, it just makes it harder to see and lowers your frame rate...

Ex: set cg_atmosphericeffects 0

set r_intensity <n>
Higher values of n make your screen brighter. Default is 1.0, allowed values are from 0 to 1.5
Ex: set r_intensity 1.2

set r_mapoverbrightbits <n>
Higher values of n make the shadowy parts of a map lighter, so you can spot enemies hiding in darker areas. Default is 2, allowed from 1 to 3. Setting it to 3 may help see targets that are hiding in shadows
Ex: set r_mapoverbrightbits 3

set r_dynamiclight <n>
Turns on (n=1) or off (n=0) dynamic light. Dynamic light is used very little in the game. I suggest you leave it on, because it is what makes the "glow" around dynamite, which is very useful to know when dyno has been planted.
Ex: set r_dynamiclight 0

set cg_shadows <n>
Turns on (n=1) or off (n=0) the little circular shadows that appear under your feet. Set this to 0 if you want, although the FPS boost will probably be negligible.
Ex: set cg_shadows 0

set r_finish <n>
Setting this to 1 enables "sync every frame". This is ONLY important if you have some device lag, like mouse or keyboard. (Perhaps if you have a wireless mouse and you find it lags behind your actions). If you don't notice your keyboard or mouse lagging, then set this to 0 to gain a few FPS.
Ex: set r_finish 0

set r_detailtextures <n>
When detail textures are enabled (n=1), it means that basically every object is textured twice to make it look more detailed. Obviously this is slower, so try disabling this (n=0) if you want to get a nice FPS boost.
Ex: set r_detailtextures 0

set r_subdivisions <n>
If you want a little performance boost, set this to 999. Otherwise, set it to 4.
Ex: set r_subdivisions 999

set r_texturemode <n>
This lets you set texture filtering. The most common values are:

(low quality): GL_NEAREST
(good quality): GL_LINEAR_MIPMAP_NEAREST (a.k.a. bilinear filtering)
(great quality): GL_LINEAR_MIPMAP_LINEAR (a.k.a. trilinear filtering)
(good quality): GL_LINEAR

In case you don't know, filtering is somewhat like antialiasing, except for textures. You can see what the game looks like without filtering by setting r_Texturemode to GL_NEAREST. It's pretty ugly, and everything is very "pixelated" or "blocky".

The default is bilinear filtering, and this will give you the best performance, and pretty good quality. For "best" quality you can use trilinear filtering, although there might possibly be some dip in FPS.

There's one problem with bilinear and trilinear filtering; both of them make your crosshair blurry. Personally I like to use a small crosshair, so this really annoys me because when the crosshair is blurred, I can barely see it. So, if this happens with you, then I'd suggest using GL_LINEAR. This mode will filter the textures and looks almost as good as bilinear filtering; yet the crosshair will still appear pretty sharp. BUT, be warned, using GL_LINEAR will likely cause a noticeable decrease in your FPS.

You could even use GL_NEAREST as your filtering mode but I wouldn't recommend it, because it looks like crap. I actually used to use this because, well, I didn't know about GL_LINEAR at the time ;)

Ex: set r_texturemode GL_LINEAR


set r_fastsky <n>
If you set this to 1, it will just draw a solid color for your sky. This may give you a slight improvement in your FPS. It's not much, but then again, who cares how pretty the sky looks?

Ex: set r_fastsky 1

Resolution
set r_mode -1
set r_customwidth 1600
set r_customheight 1200

If you're having trouble with laggy/slow connections... Well, honestly there's not much you can do! You're pretty much fucked! But, tweaking these settings might help a little

set cl_maxpackets <n>
The bigger n is, the more information your computer sends to the server, so basically your actions will be more accurate. I think the default for this is 20, you can raise it higher if you want but no higher than 100 since this is the max allowed value. Be careful when tweaking this setting, if you set it to high, it may actually make your connection worse.
Ex: set cl_maxpackets 100


set rate <n>
Can be from 2500 to 45000. The faster your connection is, the higher you should set your rate. So for example, a modem might use a rate of 5000, whereas for LAN you would use 45000.
Ex: set rate 45000
And thats all what u need :D

some giys asking what is timenudge so here it is and how to use it

set cl_timenudge <n>
This is a very odd tweak: if you have a lot of lag, then setting this to a negative number will cause some crazy calculations to occur to take your lag into account when determining stuff like where your bullet went. Most people should leave this at 0. If you have serious ping problems, try setting this lower, but no lower than -50. (-50 is the lowest allowed value on most servers). In fact though, in most competitions, cl_timenudge must be zero. So if you play in a clan, don't tweak this...
Ex: set cl_timenudge 0

yes but u dont need more. I tested allready 100 diferent setting and its just s**** and make u lagy diferent ways. Just dont need any pointles command, but ofc u can but there bind like
/bind f5 vsay greatshot Nice shooting [d]
but its just funn stuff.
I ave old cpu whit new video card thats why i tested dif configs. But i hope i got new cpu this wek so ... maybe somebody have same prob like i had.
But nice u found homepages where i found stuff :D

Yes but there's a lot of other useful stuff too.
We should have a little training session someday where I could show how to get your mouse sensitivity, pitch and yaw right.

And no point in keeping FPS more than your display refresh rate (usually 60Hz). If the display wont draw the frames, what's the use to calculate them.

Here's how I use demos:
Code: Select all
//ETc|naQ's config for recording demos

   set demoon "autorecord; set nextdemo vstr demooff; echo ^2Recording ^7started"
   set demooff "stoprecord; set nextdemo vstr demoon; echo ^7Recording ^1stopped"
   set nextdemo "vstr demoon"
   bind F12 "vstr nextdemo"
This makes F12 start and stop the demo-recording. (like record-stop)

And here how I use my commandmap (really useful with mortar):
Code: Select all
//ETc|naQ's config for commandmap

   set mapout "+mapexpand; +mapexpand; set nextmap vstr mapin"
   set mapin "-mapexpand; -mapexpand; set nextmap vstr mapout"
   set nextmap "vstr mapout"
   bind mouse4 "vstr nextmap"
This makes mouse button 4 expand and close map permanently, so it stays on screen.

Is it possible, to give a training in german? :D
Markus and me want to modify our cfg, we play with the standard one, but this technically stuff is too much for my english *lol*

Perhaps I post my cfg and you can show me, what we can do better or make different? Or perhaps delete, because its useless?
Because I already think, that we aren't as good as you all, because we have a bad cfg :(

No, no and NO! That's the etconfig.cfg generated by ET so DO NOT(!) modify this file.
You need to create an own autoexec.cfg file in etmain-folder where you can put your own binds and cvars.

No setting will make you better player! Point is to maybe get more steady FPS, lag-free connection and get better visibility.
Mouse settings are important too, but you have to know how to get the best out of them. Some one needs to teach you ingame.
Rest is just pretty much pointless crap.

Your english seems fine to me. The best visual and LAN settings you will get by reading those two topics I posted earlier.
What comes to the mouse-thing, start with these two settings and hail me when I'm on the server and I'll tell more there..

Code: Select all
   seta m_filter "0"
   seta cl_mouseAccel "0"

Re: how to make CFG

The problem I had, was, that the autoexec.cfg could not be loaded?
Everytime I wrote in the console exec autoexec.cfg there always came the message, that it can't be loaded? I don't know...and because of that, I changed the origin cfg.

Wrong...

Do you mean, we aren't bad or that it doesn't make any sense of having another cfg? *lol*

BTW, the settings I changed have changed nothing, so I can put them into the rubbish :D

Autoexec.cfg loads automaticly when ET starts. You can give other .cfg -files a different name and then execute them (e.g. /exec binds.cfg).

I mean that no config is going to make you a better player.

Yeah, that's what happens if you edit the wrong file. You're lucky that your ET still works.. ;)

Ok, I only read f.e. that you can change your see-field (?) to get a bigger cirle on the sides...because sometimes we ask ourselves, how someone could see us where we have hidden :D
And if you see more, you can better fight, right?

And that you don't shake anymore, when you run to aim better. And for me it sounded, that you can change your cfg to be a better player.
That only were two things I've seen.

And the grafique changes you can make...puh, thats a lot!

Well yeah, I use fov 118:

These are all settings that should be tested for each mouse/player.
No point in copying someone else's mouse settings, it's like wearing the wrong size shoes.

That goes for everything too. Point is to understand what the settings do and then configure them for your self.
Not just copy someone's (potentially shitty ;P) settings.

And don't use timenudge, it just makes you lag. We've been over this 100 times.

What does timenudge mean?
And I read much about spawntime, but I really do not understand, what this means, even in German *lol*

Thx for your help ;)

Good for you, but the playing style matters too.
For example I use lower yaw and sensitivity under 1.

Zero. And negative timenudges makes you lag from other players point of view and doesn't help you in any way.
