MenachemI just noticed you updated the files recently so I'm not sure which version, to be honest. What I can say is that I'm using the vpk files and downloaded them on the 5th. Will try reinstalling with the newer version minus the CPU addon and edit once that's done.
edit: Well, after more experimentation, it looks like mastercomfig isn't the culprit, just the catalyst. With the config installed, the game freezes and crashes at the motd. The GPU addon lets me get to the class selection screen. Without either one, I can get through character selection and run around for anywhere between 30 seconds to several minutes (albeit at 15 fps) before finally freezing up and crashing. Maybe this laptop just can't cut it. It's weird, though; when I was messing around earlier today, just the config without any addons would let me play, but now it's crashing. No idea where to go with this.
Try without the NoHats mod.
BrimstoneSo I've just been going through and switching to every command commented as "for cpus with less than 4 cores"
but should I actually be doing that?
I meant logical cores/threads. Sorry for the confusion.
Booopcan someone clarify what step 5 does exactly?
If you have your own autoexec.cfg already, rename it to custom.cfg, but make sure you don't have any conflicting configs in there.Why do you need to override the settings in the config.cfg file by creating another file? Can't you just copy and paste the commands directly.
You can also create a custom.cfg in your tf/cfg folder to override any settings in the config.
Also why does changing the autoexec.cfg file to custom matter. I get why you dont want any conflicting command, but why change the name of the file. Does it have something to do with the file in tf/cfg named custom.cfg as well.
By config, it means overriding settings in mastercomfig, not config.cfg. Mastercomfig comes with its own autoexec.cfg that execs custom.cfg after everything else. So you would use custom.cfg to use a different texture quality, or some other settings, as well as any binds.
