Suggested config file tweaks

Post by Borch »

These are the config file settings I have in my game, which you might want to add to yours. Some are quite helpful.

seta cl_maxpackets "100"
seta com_hunkMegs "512"
seta rate "25000"

Change the size of the compass, maximum size is 1.8 (helps me to see it):
seta cg_hudCompassSize "1.8"

Allow changing the brightness of the game by using F1 through F5. Each time you hit one of these keys, it rotates through five brightnesses available on that key, getting brighter as you move from F1 to F5:

F1=Five darkest (first time you hit it, it will be the darkest of the five, then each time after you hit it, it will get brighter)
F2=Next five brighter (same as above, only one step brighter than the F1 key)
F3=Next five brighter (same as above, only one step brighter than the F2 key)
F4=Next five brighter (same as above, only one step brighter than the F3 key)
F5=Five brightest (same as above, only one step brighter than the F4 key)

bind F1 "toggle r_gamma 0.5 0.6 0.7 0.8 0.9"
bind F2 "toggle r_gamma 1.1 1.2 1.3 1.4 1.5"
bind F3 "toggle r_gamma 1.6 1.7 1.8 1.9 2.0"
bind F4 "toggle r_gamma 2.1 2.2 2.3 2.4 2.5"
bind F5 "toggle r_gamma 2.6 2.7 2.8 2.9 3.0"

Move chat to the bottom of the screen, next to the compass, enlarged or not (so it does not get in the way of aiming, etc.):
seta cg_hudChatPosition "180 400""

Graphics improvements, perhaps, depending on how your video card is, you can adjust these:
seta r_aaAlpha "supersample (nice)"
seta r_aaSamples "4"
seta r_anisotropy "8"

I have a display that will do 144 Hz updates, which is a real improvement to the game, especially when you are looking around in different directions, it makes it less choppy:
seta r_displayRefresh "144 Hz"

FPS improvements by turning off shell casings, blood, and bullet marks on walls/ground:
seta cg_brass "0"
seta cg_blood "0"
seta cg_marks "0"

Start and stop record using the P key to start a recording, an O key to stop recording:
bind O "stoprecord"
bind P "record"

(This places a recording, named Demo0001 in the folder "o3a/demos." Playback requires typing, in console, outside of the server:
"play demo_name"
In order for the playback to occur properly, you have to join a server, then select the mods at the bottom of the menu, or else you not see anything in the game recording that is specific to the mod. I usually have to throw away a file because it claims it is corrupt. YMMV.

Use F10 to toggle display of cg_drawlagometer (shows connection quality info) and cg_drawfps:

bind F10 "toggle cg_drawlagometer;toggle cg_drawfps"
