BrimstoneI've been experiencing what I think are microstutters, where the game freezes for a split second, and I'm not quite sure what's causing it.
mat_queue_mode -1
cl_threaded_bone_setup 0
fps_max 121

I have a dual core, 4 thread cpu (intel i5 3210m) and intel hd graphics 4000, and can keep 121 pretty steadily, but I just get the occasional hang.

Is it a result of the config or could something else be at fault?

You having a mobility CPU would lead me to believe that you may be overheating, and mobility cpus underclock themselves to prevent them from reaching dangerous temperatures and it creates a visible "hang" ingame. Though if cl_ejectbrass worked for you that's great to know, I might turn that back on. (just fyi cl_ejectbrass has been off in my cfg for over a year now never had an issue I couldn't resolve)

The same thing is happening to me. It seems that stutters are random. Need help

Either you're having a temperature problem or you can try brimstones fix and see if that helps.

For now, I'm going to try turning cl_ejectbrass back on and see how things go.

Edit: Seems to be more stable, I'll keep playing and see if it's true over the next few days.

Please post it somewhere on the forums if not here what you find out.

Going to be doing an "official" update to my cfg here in the coming days. Technically some of it is already in there cause the link never changes.

Big thanks to Comanglia. This dude helped me for 45 minutes to get an extra 20-30 fps out of my 1.7ghz/integrated gfx laptop.
What I have thus far:
-Cowmanglia CFG
-No hats/effects mod
-640x480
-preload with filterlightmaps script/mat_showlowresimage 1
-mat_viewportscale 1, mat_viewportupscale 0.5
End Result: http://i.imgur.com/b2CTjX2.png

When i re open the game after a alt-tab everything lags and sometimes i get crashes aswell. I never had a cfg for more fps and never had this problem. It started happening yesterday after i installed this cfg. Any solution?

EDIT: i cant even move or shoot in singleplayer servers. Why?

EDIT: i cant even move or shoot in singleplayer servers. Why?

This is exactly what is happening to me. It's very frustrating and mat_queue_mode -1 doesn't fix anything.

EDIT: I fixed my TF2. Here's what I did:

Deleted HUD and FPS configs
Added -autoconfig to launch options
Launched TF2 and played around in an offline server safely
Quit TF2 and added the FPS config back in
Launched TF2 and played around in an offline server, again safely
Added my HUD back in
Launched TF2 (crashed again on the offline server)
Removed surfaceproperties.txt from the scripts folder

Surfaceproperties.txt seemed to be the issue. I hope this helps.

Now I am happily playing TF2 again.

Done what you sayed but didnt fix anything. After launching tf2 the first time with autoconfig in the launch options i still could not move but i could shoot. When i brought the cfg and hud back the problem was still there. Anyone else?

Hey, I just downloaded this config, tried it, adjusted some things till all issues were fixed, except for one: Sound. It's the most noticeable on hitsounds (I use default) in that it's very...how do I put this...metallic/crisp/"clangy." I've added // to all the sound changes in the autoexec so they're comments, but the sound still has that issue, meaning it isn't any of those. Any ideas what it may be?

Edit: Nvm. Answer was very simple, in game sound quality was set to low. On another note though, I can't use the config, because it doesnt let me move or properly shoot when in game. I load up tr_rocket_shooting2 to test out the config and when I try to shoot, it's like 100x shooting speed, and nothing comes out.

I've updated the cfg 9 days ago, just haven't really told anyone...

The Alt+tab lag is likely "-dxlevel" being in the launch options, or steam overlay, or you have a signifcant number of friends and need to put yourself as "offline" to fix that.

host_thread_mode 0 is now the default in my cfg

this cfg has more fps than the last I have the benchmarks at home but I am at work...

Thanks for the update. Going offline mode/turning off steam overlay does not stop the alt tab lag for me. Is changing dxlevel from 81 to 90 the only solution?

I recommend it on for most people but I can't just have it set to 1

I just want to make sure you're removing "-dxlevel 81" from your launch options after the 1st load, as for some users this cause ALT+TAB lag.

Yeah having that on 0 by default in the cfg fucked me up for a few days until I realised that I wasn't quite as bad as I thought I was. Also who still uses xfire in 2015 lol.
