My TF2 Config - A Blog Post for GameBanana.

Just basically going over my graphic settings, and launch parameters.

First, here is a new image I might make into a spray at some point. ^ It is titled "Scout CAN Read"... Now on to the config, I use a variation of Very High graphic settings, I have made this config with the help of some tutorials here, and just other configs in general This is what I used on my laptop (incredibly cheap I might add), I still use it on my new computer for some of the more laggy maps like pl_frontier. //Dual Core Support mat_queue_mode 2 r_threaded_renderables 1 r_threaded_particles 1 r_threaded_client_shadow_manager 1 cl_threaded_bone_setup 1 cl_threaded_client_leaf_system 1 //--------------------------------------------- //Graphics Settings mat_phong 0 mat_specular 1 mat_picmip -10 r_rootlod 0 cl_showfps 1 // Show unsmoothed FPS meter fps_max 60 cl_forcepreload 1 // Force preloading tf_particles_disable_weather 1 cl_detaildist 0 cl_detailfade 0 cl_ejectbrass 0 mat_trilinear 1 violence_ablood 1 mat_colcorrection_disableentities 1 mat_colorcorrection 0 mat_disable_bloom 1 mat_disable_fancy_blending 1 mat_hdr_level 0 muzzleflash_light 0 cl_new_impact_effects 0 //--------------------------------------------- // Disable shadows mat_shadowstate 0 r_shadowmaxrendered 0 r_shadowrendertotexture 0 r_shadows 0 //--------------------------------------------- // Disable ragdolls cl_ragdoll_fade_time 0 cl_ragdoll_forcefade 1 cl_ragdoll_physics_enable 0 g_ragdoll_fadespeed 0 g_ragdoll_lvfadespeed 0 ragdoll_sleepaftertime 0 //--------------------------------------------- // Disable gibs cl_phys_props_enable 0 cl_phys_props_max 0 props_break_max_pieces 0 r_propsmaxdist 1 violence_agibs 0 violence_hgibs 0 After that I have found some launch parameters that also help with performance, some include the heapsize, others are just personal preference. -dxlevel 90 -fullscreen -novid -32bit -dualcore -heapsize 1572864 -d3d -windowed -noborder -w 1440 -h 900 -useforcedmparms -noforcemaccel -noforcemspd
