zfnWhere has this discussion taken place, or was that sarcasm? Only myself and Zetos have replied to this thread, both expressing uncertainty in the idea, plus your survey of 106 responses at the time of this post are negative. 68.9% of people said they wouldn't be open to subscribing to mastercomfig+, not to mention the16% maybe and 2.8% don't know. That's 87.7% of 106 people who are against/uncertain to the idea.

There's been discussion here, on Discord and on the Steam Community. It doesn't really matter how many people won't subscribe, since mastercomfig+ isn't designed to negatively affect them (in fact, stuff will trickle down to the main config so it can only help them). The only thing that matters is how many people will subscribe, as that helps me determine how extensive the analysis can be and if I can sustain it at all.

zfnWhat is machine learning? How does it work? How exactly will that be used here? What sort of performance impact will it have on my game, if it is gathering data specific to my system? What sort of performance boost would I be expecting to obtain from all of this? Would this all be included in the .exe file, or will that be a separate download? What sort of data is being collected? Have I misunderstood the idea completely?

So the app will collect hardware and OS information, similar to Steam's hardware survey. It will also collect performance data while you run the game. I'm not entirely sure what the performance impact will be yet since mastercomfig+ isn't close to being actually implemented yet, but my goal is to make it close to zero since this is a performance config after all.

So all this data is submitted to a server which analyzes the data using machine learning, which makes associations between hardware details, performance data and settings. As more data comes in from a wide variety of systems, it will be able to analyze enough data to make predictions about optimal values and performance for different settings.

zfnWhat exactly will the difference be between the paid version and the free version? If we set aside cvars which are mostly personal preference (decals, props, gibs, ragdolls, ropes, effects, sound, lighting, shadows, post processing, character visuals etc etc), what exactly will mastercomfig+ be suggesting to improve performance that we don't already know thanks to your efforts so far?

You shouldn't set aside those values, as that's a big part of mastercomfig+. Here's a mockup of how it would look like:

https://i.imgur.com/VJmIyeL.png

This would replace the presets with a preference slider for performance/quality, along with a performance estimate based on your selections and hardware.

https://i.imgur.com/5wmTAVb.png

Individual settings would show relative performance estimates and highlight highest performance/quality options, so you can tell what the best tradeoff is going to be.

In addition to these recommendations/performance predictions, it will also tune hardware specific settings optimizations, like clipping, z reject, occlusion, etc.

zfnIf the number of people subscribing is lower than you originally thought, how long will you maintain the project for?

This service is extremely scalable. The quality and speed of the results being generated might suffer from less funding, but I don't see a likely scenario where I would have to shut down the service altogether.

zfn I have no intention of using mastercomfig+, but I appreciate your efforts and enthusiasm for this 10 year old game. Nevertheless, will I be able to donate a single lump sum of money your way, instead of seeing -$2.70's on my bank statement each month?

I think I've stated this before, but you are in no way required to do a recurring payment. You can do a single payment which pays towards your subscription, and you get to keep any values gotten from the service even after your subscription expires. So let's say you donate a one time payment of $18.09. That would be enough for the biannual payment + 1 month, so you would get the service for that long and once your subscription ends, you get to keep the values generated from it, but you won't get future values as the service does more analysis until you pay for the service again. And, if you pay any thing extra (like let's say $1.70), it will go towards paying for your service as it accumulates to the required payment.

Bucakeas for ways of payment, i've always preferred simple one-shot paypal donations so i can decide what i want to pay/can miss, and later i can always come back and put in extra. i realize that might not be ideal for someone putting in time consistently, but i think it's safe to assume that some might not bother with patreon at all, while they would consider something like paypal. (just a suggestion to have that as an option as well.)

Patreon provides PayPal as a payment method. And, it's fine if you pay only one time, as explained above.

springrollsthrow in my 2 cents, i'd totally be willing to donate for all the effort you've put in but i'm also really really against subscription based services (perhaps scarred by forgetting to unsubscribe from esea premium....) one-shot donation would be greatly preferable, mastercomfig+ would be cool also but i dont really play the game anymore so that's not really the main appeal for me personally

As explained above, there's no requirement to do a recurring subscription. Also, think about it like this: you donate money one time, and you get something extra, even if it's just for like a month or so. I think that's better than just donating and getting nothing at all and there being no clear benefit to how the donation will improve the config's service to its users.

ComangliaFrom the posts above it seems the most ideal solution would be to make a payment system not terribly dissimilar to humblebundle. Put in X amount of dollars = X months of subscription + remainder being considered a straight donation. Without a recurring subscription, of course you can still have a subscription method as well, but I believe having the prior method would be preferable to the majority of people willing to donate/pay you.

I'm not sure if I understand the issue with a subscription, you can still do one time payments and you get the service for as much as you paid for. See above for more information.

ComangliaI can only imagine the amount of time Mastercoms has put into this and it really makes me wonder how you could possibly have that much time.

I spend on average 3 hours a day on mastercomfig.

I don't mind offering one-time donations to people who put in effort toward providing services for this dead game that even the devs don't care about anymore, but offering a subscription service for a "premium" version of a config just seems awful silly to me. There's also some questionable things like you discouraging individualistic fine-tuning of your config, the fact that you expect me to read all that text above this post, etc. I don't think providing a custom config is a service for this game that's worth subscribing to, personally. If you were to ask for a donation of maybe a key or a couple of bucks, I'd be down with that. Subscribing just doesn't seem like a logical choice to make in this situation. The fact that you'd offer it kind of actually makes me not even want to use your config even for free.

morwannegThere's also some questionable things like you discouraging individualistic fine-tuning of your config

By making modifications to the config compatible with the frequent updates to it through custom.cfg, and providing ways to easily customize quality levels, I'm discouraging fine tuning? I'd really like to know how you came to this conclusion.

morwanneg the fact that you expect me to read all that text above this post

I'm responding to other people's posts. With words. There were a lot of things to respond to, so there are a lot of words. There's no expectation for you to read anything, nor for you to post here. But I appreciate your feedback.

morwannegetc

Honestly, looking back, it seems like you had one complaint but wanted to make a list so you stuck on another thing for no reason and then an etc.

morwannegIf you were to ask for a donation of maybe a key or a couple of bucks, I'd be down with that. Subscribing just doesn't seem like a logical choice to make in this situation.

I'm happy to accept one time payments. You'll still contribute to the machine learning service and receive the reward of real-time prediction for hardware specific recommendations. The servers for this real-time prediction cost money. So you pay money to get those features. There's no way to provide it for free. That's why it's "locked" behind a paywall.

morwannegThe fact that you'd offer it kind of actually makes me not even want to use your config even for free.

The config isn't going to get worse or more restricted to make room for paid features. In fact, quite the opposite is happening. Trends found in the data analysis will allow me to improve the config for everyone. It's just the hardware specific recommendation service that's tailored for each individual system costs more money, so people have to pay for it to get access for it. The payment also goes towards the lower cost general processing that will be used for aforementioned trend finding.

https://github.com/mastercoms/mastercomfig/blob/release/config/cfg/addons/mouse-tweaks.cfg

Disables mouse filtering, disables mouse acceleration, enables raw input and makes the sniper scope sensitivity the same as your normal sensitivity.

This is the weirdest overreaction ever. All I did was offer my opinion. I would not be willing to pay for the "privilege" of being datamined, and according to the survey, it seems most other people wouldn't as well. I'm also not willing to use a config created by someone who wants people to pay them to be datamined. That goes far above and beyond what I would expect from what should be a simple graphics config.

Yes benchmarking is datamining I'm sorry for this privacy breach.

But seriously, I'm not sure where this sudden additional concern comes from for "datamining" (avoiding any discussion of previous points). If the information you're providing makes sense for the service, then it's totally fine. It's not like getting hardware specs and FPS data is a breach/overreach of privacy when it is being used for how different hardware runs on TF2. It's literally the exact data I need to analyze and improve the config.

Even though you put in alot of effort into the config and you definitely deserve donations for your work so far, I have my doubts about whether or not machine learning is the way to go. Quite alot of people use your config so you can get quite some data, but your config contains hundreds of commands and there are tens/hundreds of different hardware setups. Do you have any current data about how many people use your config installer, and do you think you will get enough data to actually find significant links between optimised commands and hardware specs? Obviously you're in a way better position to know if it's possible, I'm just wondering about the possible results.

Again, in theory it's a nice way to improve your config and I really do think you deserve the donations, but if you're gonna promise some extra small performance improvements for donators in this way and pay for servers yourself, it would be nice to have some certainty about the actual results from using machine learning.

Well that's the next step in this process. First I wanted to see what the community thought and see what the funding possibilities were. Now I'll be adding a few new optional data features to the app to determine the engineering viability of mastercomfig+.

I voted no for mastercomfig+ because I'm poor and stingy not because of "datamining" in a graphics config.

Also I like how you say you won't read the text and then you say some stuff that has clearly been addressed in the posts above. From what I've read mastercomfig+ is basically a bonus incentive for donating, it's more than just paying exclusively for a service. If you really fear that this config will datamine you and nothing can change your mind, well, you can still donate and just don't use mastercomfig+.

The checkbox on the left controls whether or not you want to set that custom setting. The thing to the right is what you're setting it to.

If for example 3D sky is unchecked, then it will use whatever your quality level for world detail sets 3D sky to. If it is checked, it will use the value from the slider.

I don't have access to TF2 currently and therefore can't actually fully use the app, so can you explain how the config installation process works, if the app is not a VPK generator? Say if I don't need the optimisations provided by the miscellaneous non-config files, would it be feasible to just compile all the desired settings in one plain .cfg file?

The manual option to enable backpack borders didn't work. I'm using Medium preset.

There's a combination of selections that makes the client-custom have repeated values, such as r_renderoverlayfragment 1 and r_overlayfadeenable 0. Not sure if the default Medium has them already on those values, and using ☑ Art Decals *on* / ☑ Art Decal Fade *off* gets it written again on the cfg.

Would be nice to have an indicator on presets that have custom settings after opening the tab. Didn't know where the sliders go, comparing to the previous iteration.

The button to default presets restores the options that you change through a menu, but those with checkboxes keep their settings regardless.

I'll look into this.

What do you mean by repeated valies?

Whar indicator would be good? Is the current one that says "Custom settings" not enough?

Will fix in the next update.

Hi, it's a great resource for others if you could explain your problem and the solution, since other people may encounter the same or similar problem. If you're embarrassed about it, then you can just send me a PM.

Any remark, from a symbol to a tiny text next to the title. If a new user opens the dropdown for an option which doesn't have custom settings, it would be same for him to assume that the others are the same; with Low to Ultra to pick and that's it.

You could move them off of the second menu (custom settings). Since the user already opened the tab for that setting, it wouldn't be cluttered. Given how the tabs open up and their height, the custom settings part can go unnoticed.

That's because you're not supposed to edit the vpk directly. If you want to edit your config, follow the procedures on github https://github.com/mastercoms/mastercomfig#4-custom-configs. Alternatively, if you want to see all the commands and the comments that explain what they do, go here https://github.com/mastercoms/mastercomfig/blob/release/config/mastercomfig/cfg/comfig.cfg.

Could you share your Settings file (located at %appdata%\mastercomfig-app\Settings)?

Also thanks for the suggestion! I will try to make the custom settings section more visible. But also keep in mind that every module is going to have custom settings eventually.

VPK files aren't meant to be opened in a text editor. If you'd like to customize the config, please use a custom.cfg file in your tf/cfg folder. If you want to read the config, you may do so online:

addons and presets: https://github.com/mastercoms/mastercomfig/tree/release/config/cfg
everything else: https://github.com/mastercoms/mastercomfig/tree/release/config/mastercomfig

It's not an addon, it's a community config shared by me! It echos "Very Good." into console on launch!
