Medico_di_BiscottiWhy was
mat_antialias
changed to 1? Does it not improve FPS anymore, or is it to stop the screen from lagging out when changing? 'Cus the latter part is fixed by putting
+mat_antialias 0
in launch options.

This is a slightly unrelated issue, but does anyone else's demos break when viewing them in
mat_aaquality above 0
if they were recorded without AA? So I leave it out of the cinematic config.
mat_antialias
works fine, though.

I am having the same problem. When I had mat_antialias on 1, my mumble overlay would just turn white. I also use dxlevel 81. The only way I can fix this is by having -nod3d9ex in launch options, which makes me wait like 6 seconds to alt+tab into TF2.

0 is not a valid value for mat_antialias. The minimum value for it is 1, and if you set it to 0 it'll just be clamped by the game to 1. The same is true for mat_forceaniso.

I have time to waste, going through the config commands and seeing what happens

I thought I found out what causes the black textures, but I couldn't get it to work again, so it's likely a result of more than one command at the same time?

Just skimmed through config, couple questions/comments:

"mat_colcorrection_disableentities 0" - shouldn't be 1? You already disabled color-correction, but enabling entities?

"mat_picmip -1" - Last update "Eliminated occasional hitching caused by using mat_picmip 2 (or selecting low quality textures in Video Options -> Advanced)". No reason for -1 anymore, unless you like look.

"mat_trilinear 1" - Mouse movement feels smoother on 0 for me. Can confirm?

"net_queue_trace 0" - Does nothing but everyone has in config :/

AnAkkkThat cvar actually does nothing to optimize netcode, it prints debug information about the queued packet system (which is why it says “trace”) in the console, and that only happens when the value is set to “581304”, any other value will be considered as disabled.

TLDR: net_queue_trace 1 does nothing

cl_forcepreload / mat_disable_d3d9ex - Gone from last update. Probably this: "Fixed two most common forms of framerate stuttering / hitching when using popular FPS configs"

mat_shadowstate - Gone as well.

cl_detaildist 0 / cl_detailfade 0 - These 2 cvars does nothing in autoexec. They turn default values of 1200 / 400 when changing maps. Put them in class configs instead so they exec after map change.

also why so many cheat commands? Does nothing.

Would anybody happen to know why the edges of walls are really jagged and laggy when I move? This does not have to do with anti-aliasing or filtering. Also, this isn't a recent issue. It has been happening for a while.

pazerMedico_di_BiscottiWhy was mat_antialias changed to 1? Does it not improve FPS anymore, or is it to stop the screen from lagging out when changing? 'Cus the latter part is fixed by putting +mat_antialias 0 in launch options.
0 is not a valid value for mat_antialias. The minimum value for it is 1, and if you set it to 0 it'll just be clamped by the game to 1. The same is true for mat_forceaniso.

But the game still recognizes it as a setting and switching between 0 and 1 also causes the game to freeze up while applying the change. I haven't tested if it actually changes, but the freeze is there and it'll say that the value was changed to 0.

I also said in the last post that my game doesn't draw the fire overlay, anyone else? I hadn't noticed people had responded when I edited more stuff in my post.

Also, when execing maxframes for high quality:

Unknown command "mat_shadowstate"
Unknown command "mat_disable_d3d9ex"
Unknown command "cl_forcepreload"
-

and when executing cinematic:

Unknown command "cl_forcepreload"
Unknown command "cl_loadondemand_default"
-

I know that loadondemand was removed from maxframes as well, just pointing out that it's still in cinematic.

What is d3d9ex? Is the command unknown because I haven't enabled it in a launch option or something. And how does dxlevel 90 compare FPS-wise to dxlevel 95 and 98?

Also, whatever makes the cloaking refraction look real funky is extremely distracting.

that would be mat_picmip -1, which was required because of weapon skins breaking low-quality textures and actually making performance worse on anything but highest, but that was fixed and just not updated in the config

switch it to mat_picmip 2

Personally i hated the circle effect 0 creates around the player, that any beyond the blurryness of the toaster config the 2nd most common reason people added me to fix stuff with the toaster config was about the circle effect 0 creates around the player.

That and the fps difference is negligible just like
mat_filterlightmaps 0/1
mat_filtertextures 0/1

don't affect performance for 99% of users most would prefer them set to 1
