How to get higher frame rates. - A Tutorial for Team Fortress 2

First of all,locate your TF2 folder. ( C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Team Fortress 2 )


After that,open the folder called "tf" and make a copy of your "materials"(in case you want to delete it) folder. If its done,download this pack.  (NOT MADE BY ME) If you finished with the download,open it and place the "models" and "materials" folder in the "tf" folder that you opened earlier. (With this pack i got 30 fps,i had 13 before the installation.)

Custom CFG files

In your "tf" folder,there should be a folder called "cfg". Open that and after that open this website. Make your own options by selecting the one thats suits for you.

After you finished with the options,download and open it. Copy EVERYTHING from that folder to your cfg folder located in the "tf" folder. (+10 fps avarage)

Launch Optins

Open Steam and right click on Team Fortress 2,open Porperties and click on "Set Launch Options..."

Copy this there:
-dxlevel 81 -sw -noborder -w 1280 -h 800 -console -novid -useforcedmparms -noforcemaccel -noforcemspd
(No noticable fps changes,maybe 1 or 2)

Graphical settings

All i can say here is:
Open the advanced graphical settings and set Everything to Low,Motion Blure off,Reflections: Simple
And for the last: open console and type this:
mat_phong 0
You need to type this in everytime you restart the game.
