Steam update patchnote:

New feature: Shader Pre-Caching. Whenever possible, depending on hardware and driver support, Steam can download pre-compiled shaders for your specific video card. This reduces load times and in-game stuttering during the first few launches of OpenGL- and Vulkan-based games on supported hardware.

Should we give OpenGL emulating on Windows a second chance?

It isn't beneficial because of how TF2 handles HLSL vs how it handles GLSL support.

The launch option already gave better performance, there isn't a reason to revisit just because of this. I haven't been able to test if flamethrower particles are still invisible on it, so that's why it was moved to silly launch options.

gemm^m_limitedcapture_workaround 1 still causes issues with me so probably shouldnt be default

m_limitedcapture_workaround "1" is the default setting though. However, if you hadn't experienced any issues prior it was added I'd say it's safe to disable it.

Does the exec custom run after the comp preset?

m_limitedcapture_workaround 1 // Workaround for mouse capture issues

Also kind of off topic but can this or a different setting make TF2 mouse capturing better? I still get issues clicking outside of TF2 when playing it full screen with a second monitor enabled.

I'm running a potato. Classic case of waiting on more money for building new pc.
Can anyone tell me if this is the best option for me?
Running slightly less than 2.0 ghz cpu, 2g ram, integrated graphics. This is a true potato. I can play a little league of legends, n64 games, and now experimenting with tf2 for the first time. Is this config going to give me best fps disregarding quality? and how do I use this method? Thanks a bunch.

maxperformance or comp preset with the igpu addon would be good. If the FPS isn't good enough, you can use the stripped addon.

Does cl_particle_batch_mode 2 improve performance? What are the bugs with it?

Does mat_reducefillrate 1 use more CPU? Does it reduce performance for good graphics cards? Trying to work out why it was moved to igpu.cfg.

What is the logic in setting net_splitpacket_maxrate exactly 1 higher than rate?

What effect does nb_shadow_dist have on gameplay and performance? Does it have any effect if you set r_shadows 0?
Also, the Valve developer wiki article on NextBot states that it is an AI system - how does it relate to shadows?

comfig.cfgcl_fasttempentcollision 20 // Check every 20 frames for collisions on syringes, shell ejection, blood,
// and some other effects

Could this be set to some extremely large value (ie cl_fasttempentcollision 10000) to effectively disable checking for such collisions? Would this improve performance?

comfig.cfgrope_solid_minwidth 0.1 // Skip drawing ropes if they are not large enough on screen

Could this be set to some extremely large value (ie rope_solid_minwidth 10000) to effectively disable drawing ropes? Would this improve performance? Would this have any effect if you set rope_rendersolid 0?

Finally, does snd_cull_duplicates 1 improve performance on good CPUs? Does it have a large effect on sound quality? Interested in why it was moved to stripped.cfg.

They're not.

DrasticBinHey there, how to remove the fog?

What are your launch options?

FreudDoes cl_particle_batch_mode 2 improve performance? What are the bugs with it?

Very minimally. It makes tracers collapse to one ray, and makes flames invisible half of the time.

FreudDoes mat_reducefillrate 1 use more CPU? Does it reduce performance for good graphics cards? Trying to work out why it was moved to igpu.cfg.

Yes and yes.

FreudWhat is the logic in setting net_splitpacket_maxrate exactly 1 higher than rate?

It's how the rate is calculated for splitpackets.

FreudWhat effect does nb_shadow_dist have on gameplay and performance? Does it have any effect if you set r_shadows 0? Also, the Valve developer wiki article on NextBot states that it is an AI system - how does it relate to shadows?

Presumably it's for MvM and TFBots, but I'm not entirely sure.

Freudcomfig.cfgcl_fasttempentcollision 20 // Check every 20 frames for collisions on syringes, shell ejection, blood,
// and some other effects

Could this be set to some extremely large value (ie cl_fasttempentcollision 10000) to effectively disable checking for such collisions? Would this improve performance?

That's a good idea, I'll add it to the max performance preset.

Freudcomfig.cfgrope_solid_minwidth 0.1 // Skip drawing ropes if they are not large enough on screen
Could this be set to some extremely large value (ie rope_solid_minwidth 10000) to effectively disable drawing ropes? Would this improve performance? Would this have any effect if you set rope_rendersolid 0?

There isn't a point to that since you can disable rendering ropes directly. This is just an optimization when ropes are small on the screen.

FreudFinally, does snd_cull_duplicates 1 improve performance on good CPUs? Does it have a large effect on sound quality? Interested in why it was moved to stripped.cfg.

It has a minimal performance improvement on good CPUs, and has a big effect on sound quality for sounds that repeat a lot. It was moved to stripped "due to bugginess with frequent hitsounds", as the change log says.

I honestly don't remember how exactly I came to the +1 value. I will have to check.

The distance decreases, so it's less intensive.

I would say most people would like to see how a pyro is firing, especially since people were complaining about the invisible flames bug before.

I've heard 81 is more stable than 80, whatever that means. 80 has less graphical features than 81, so you might get a performance boost from that.

It’ll be fine as long as your graphics card driver still supports dx8.

Recent AMD drivers are dropping support for dx8 so you might want to roll back your drivers in order for it to work properly.
