No questions.  I followed your instructions and it worked with no problem. 


It worked so well that my KDR jumped from 0.003 to 0.005  :P


jk- It did help.  I also turned off or reduced most of the shading and a few other graphics related settings.


Excellent tutorial- thanks for contributing!


So...whats the topic of your next Insurgency tutorial??

Hm... I might make a tutorial on creating a custom "server.cfg" file used for single-player mode.
