Perfect Config?

hi everyone,

Basicially, im looking to find out how you can make your CS:S config as perfect as possible for your current setup, im not sure how many people are in the same boat as me, but when it comes to rates and cmdrates etc etc, im lost, so does anyone no of a website that explains it, or could someone give me a quick summery of what the most important ones are to get right and how you work them out.

Thankyou in advance

Your Favourite noob

It all really comes down to what kind of connection you've got, your ping on that connection and what server you are playing on.

In my config i have a key assigned to switch between my public rates and my match server rates.

Public

cl_cmdrate = 66

cl_updaterate 66

rate 25000

fps_max 66

Server

cl_cmdrate = 80

cl_updaterate = 80

rate 25000

fps_max 80

The reason why i set my fps to the server rates is that i find it gives much smoother game play (rather than a constantly changing fps), and also gives you a better idea of what the server is seeing.

I don't set all the way up to 100 on match servers, as the difference between playing on 66 tickrate public servers and 100 tickrate match servers is pretty big, so i minimise the effect by only going up to 80.

Also keep cmdrate and update rate the same, as otherwise people get shirty when they see that you are setitng your rates to receive more data from the server than you are sending (effectively making it slightly harder for ppl to register shots on you).
