Hello,

 

 I been having an annoying issue the last week. Usually my fps is at 90 but now it stays at a constant 30. I deleted my ET and re-downloaded it through the website, but the same problem occurs.

 

One day I was playing and everything was fine.. then all of a sudden shit just got slow.. like it ticked in.

 

It is strange bc when I am in the main menu, my mouse movement/sensitivity seems normal... but once I get into the game shit gets real slow/ laggy and fps stays at 30ish.

 

I tried /com_maxfps 125 and the response I get is " cannot find relative path"

 

I am not that tech savy so I do not know how to show config.. or screen shot/paste my error message here... hopefully we can find a solution without all of that.

 

Thanks for your help.

 

Best,

 

badfish.

Update - 

 

Once I get into a game, I start at 90 fps.. then in 3-4 seconds it trickles down to 30.

 

Thanks,

more infos about your rig, game config, so on... would be usefull in order to help us solve your issue.

 

 

but just in case, in game, open your console and type \r_primitives 2

seta r_simpleMipMaps "1"-->0 (this will give you a little boost on your fps)

seta com_hunkMegs "128"-->256

seta com_zoneMegs "256"-->24(default),32 or 64max.. yours is way too high imho.
seta r_subdivisions "20"-->999
seta r_lodCurveError "250"-->0
 
-don't forget to add at the end of all configs you make a "\vid_restart", otherwise some of your settings will remain straddling on 2 states\latched.
-there's 2 times the cvar r_mode in your cfg. One is set on -1 and the other on 6.
-also, check in your video card panel and force the vsync in setting it on the "disabled" state.

not an old version, but more probably a driver you got through Windows Update. With an Nvidia driver you will only have the last bug fixes and the ability to access settings through the panel.

 

and what shld i use cvar r_mode -1 or 6??

depends if \r_customheight and \r_customwidth are set and you use your own resolution or if you use 800x600 as resolution. In the 1st case \r_mode -1 in the other \r_mode 6.

I just r_mode 4. Works best for me. For wide screen always use screen resolution based on your monitor or laptop display. 

 

Note: New laptop comes with 'Ultra' lower power CPU usage so some people complain that they got laptop in 2015 and yet doesn't play ET. Well your CPU is junk. All this ultra low power CPU's are junk shit and hence I never buy those. 

 

Code is 10 year old so yes it's gonna lag a bit compare to newer games who have much better handling of network side code and majorly anti lag.

well i tested the lag and saw the fps and it doesnt lag so bad as it lagged before it is dropping to 25-30 when i m near crowded area... thx mate and my resolution is little bit messed up i shall try 6 and see...
