Issues with ET

Question

Hey guys! Something is going wrong with my ET. So, today I was gonna start up ET like normal. Then it was not responding. So, I went ahead and stopped the process. (My browser was not working either so I took my wifi stick out and put it back in) I then started up ET, only to see my default cfg active. I got confused so I went ahead and executed my normal cfg and now I am having some really bad fps issues. Like normally I would go like 125 and not have drops at all. But now I am going 30 fps with A LOT of drops. I actually find this very strange but I do not know how to fix this problem. If anyone would take their time and help me fix it, I would be the happiest person on earth ('Cause I really wanna kick some butt :D) Thank you guys!

Sounds like faulty files. Reinstalling and/or manually deleting the files from your folder (that is, the mod folders, not ETMain and the overlaying folder) (being the pk3 files, maps and mod adjustments) should always fix this.

I've had a similar problem that would occur if my folder was simply too sizeable.

 

The problem that you are having does not sound like one that you can fix in-game. com_maxfps 125 is nice if it has been limited before, but I believe it is set to well above 125 on default. There is, as far as I know, no server option available to forcefully limit its clients FPS with the com_maxfps command (as it is client-based(?))

 

/e As I read on it seems that a lot of people suggest making backups. Just like virusscanning; the more you leave out of the scan (or reinstall, in this case) the higher the risk the problem is contained within a file that is not checked.

@Storm that is a strange issue you have bad luck with ET :D

Can't recall but I think you said it was fine with default config? If so I would just start over with default config/profile and slowly add settings until you get bad fps again that way you can isolate what is giving you bad fps :P.

 

@filble

In default.cfg of silent mod default server install(forcecvars file)

forcecvar snaps 20
sv_cvar cg_fov IN 90 140
forcecvar r_ambientScale 0.5
forcecvar r_colorMipLevels 0
forcecvar r_lightmap 0
sv_cvar r_depthbits IN 24 32
forcecvar cl_freelook 1
forcecvar cl_pitchspeed 0
sv_cvar cl_yawspeed IN 0 140
forcecvar cl_timenudge 0
forcecvar r_zfar 0
sv_cvar cl_maxpackets IN 60 100
sv_cvar com_maxfps IN 43 125
sv_cvar r_rmse EQ 0
forcecvar r_softwareGL 0
sv_cvar r_clamptoedge EQ 1
sv_cvar cl_nodelta EQ 0
sv_cvar cl_packetdup IN 0 1

paste this in the default cfg and silent default cfg of my profile that I use? I was thinking of deleting the cfgs and just connect to server and make ET rebuild them

So I guess I will install another one again, and just add xp. I will probably just delete the other copies.

It goes back to normal. But, when I go into an area of shooting or something, it goes to 70. So, I guess I will need to find a new cfg. :D

I fixed it, deleted cfgs and made et rebuild em. Now works! But the ping is still crap xD I will  fix that later.
