    Increasing FrameRate



    Here are some tips to improve that frame rate:

    Graphics Menu in-game:

    Video Mode = Use native screen resolution for your monitor.
    If your hardware cannot handle this resolution, set it lower and check out the resulting change in frame rate.
    Anti Aliasing = Off
    Vertical Sync = Off
    Glow = No
    Dynamic Lights = OFF (if on, will create a -20 fps frame rate hit)
    Screen Refresh = Set as high as your monitor can handle
    Soften Smoke Edges = No
    Depth of Field = No (creates a 5+ fps drop)
    Rag Doll= No
    Bullet Holes = No
    Model Detail= Low (Low or medium models are for all intents and purposes produce equivalent frame rate)
    Water Detail = Normal

    Texture settings can be kept high, as it does not affect frame rate much, my frame rate doesn't change much when I have it on Low, or whether I have it on Extra, so I use Extra.

    If you are pushing the upper reaches of frame rate you will have noticed that the rate is now capped in-game. But, by changing the maxfps setting to 0, the frame rate can climb to whatever your system can handle. There is a temptation to "uncap" the frame rate using the /com_maxfps 0 command in console.

    Additional changes in console can be made to improve your frame rate as well:

    /r_drawDecals 0
    Normally set to 1, setting to 0 removes marks on the walls from gunfire, explosions and other related items. Frame rate improvements of 5 fps can be achieved.

    /sm_enable 0
    This turns off shadows and can improve frame rate by as much as 30 fps.


    And yes.. It has honestly improved my gameplay, I just changed it all today and although it doesn't look as amazing, I dont get distracted by great graphics!

    Try it out, tell me what you think.. Hope this helped
