Remove mastercomfig-addon-no-footsteps.vpk. There is currently a bug with VPK based settings, where they are downloaded to the folder on enabling the VPK to be downloaded (like in the case of disabling footsteps), but not deleted afterwards, when the VPK download is disabled.

Looks we're nearing the end!

Rendering performance increased, sound quality improvements (in exchange for performance), network tweaks, and lighting quality adjustments.

This config is intended to be a basis for a future mastercomfig stable version, so make sure you get your feedback in if you notice any issues!

iirc the fps cap is like that bc laptops heat up if there isn't a fps cap
tbf if you have a 240hz monitor you're prob smart enough to get rid of the fps cap

crib_Why do you have fps_max 160? What about those with 240Hz displays?

I lowered the FPS cap because so that more people could benefit from a stable, locked framerate by default, and so that there weren't so many excessive frames being output for many users by default.

An FPS cap is only useful if you can reach above it most of the time, and the previous value was very hard to reach. Now, more people will be able to reach this default, and can benefit from the stable, capped FPS.

240Hz is such a rare configuration, and such a rare FPS that people usually reach that it wouldn't be fair to increase the cap to a value that accommodates those users.

If you'd like to change fps_max for your own setup, you may create an autoexec.cfg file in a tf/cfg/user folder and set fps_max to anything you'd like

Is there any input lag or any undesirable effect of having a low fps cap? Which is better, fluctuating b/w 250 and 350 or hard cap of 250/300?

crib_Is there any input lag or any undesirable effect of having a low fps cap? Which is better, fluctuating b/w 250 and 350 or hard cap of 250/300?

The only input lag I'm familiar with is the increased time to frame, which has diminishing returns for increased FPS. So, if you render faster, obviously you're going to see the result of your actions faster on the screen or reflected within the frame dependent input polling code.

I would say fluctuating FPS is worse. But keep in mind that frame pacing isn't affected by fps_max, so some issues will still exist even with a stable FPS from fps_max.

That's an old version of mastercomfig. I would recommend clearing your TF2 settings, and reinstalling the new config.

Try removing your entire custom folder, then launching and see if that fixes it.
If removing the entire folder works, slowly add parts back in until the game fails to launch, that will let you know which part of your custom folder is causing the problem.

You could also launch the game with -autoconfig as the only launch option.

I tried to rename the class configs in tf/cfg/user/autoexec.cfg by adding the aliases specified in the docs, but it doesn't seem to use the specified config name. My class configs work just fine if I use the standard names though (ex. scout.cfg instead of myscout.cfg).

If your class config alias was class_config_scout "exec myscout", make sure that it's at tf/cfg/myscout.cfg, and not tf/cfg/user/myscout.cfg.

It's very useful for the community if you share your problem and solution, because other people may have the same issue.

Yes, the SteamPipe system shares the file structure with the main tf/ folder. However, I'd like to recommend using either tf/cfg or packing your custom folder into a VPK (if your custom files are supported for the VPK format) for faster load times.

tmnHow do I set my interp back to 15.2 or 17.9

I don't recommend 17.9 or any fractional interp because of a bug that causes hitboxes to desync from their models.

15.2 is not recommended because of snapshot drops that cause inaccurate extrapolation.

However, you should set cl_interp_ratio first, then cl_interp if you really want to change your interp.

Each folder in custom, it should be safe and if it doesn't work, revert back to the folder.

stephis there any particular reason why mat_antialias is set to 1 instead of 0, even at the low preset?

Because mat_antialias 1 means antialiasing is off. 0 is not a valid value and is clamped up to 1.
