What tweaks can we use to get Black Mesa running as smooth as possible and looking beautiful at the same time in a medium-end computer? Any useful comment will be taken in consideration.

  1. setting game priority to HIGH
  2. updating the graphics card
  3. mat_picmip -1 (...or 0, 1; depends on the PC)
  4. fps_max 60
  5. disabling fancy HUD effects on screen (how can this be done with console variables?)
  6. rate (how should we set this variable?)

    What are your specs? In 2017, there really shouldn't be any reason that these games shouldn't be running smoothly on pretty much any rig.
