mastercomsWhat version were you using before? Also, I have heard reports of the latest TF2 update causing performance issues for some people, so it may also be that. See if you can revert to your last version and see if the issues still come up.

I was on 9.4.0 before, which I just rolled back to and the game feels a tad smoother, but still not as smooth as it was before. I guess it might be the update as you said then

Is mastercomfig going to optimize bots (through the tf_bot cvars), or will it just leave bots alone?

You should probably mention on your recommended launch options that the -hushsteam command whilst preventing your IP from being registered on local servers, also prevents access to the item servers on them. Just for clarity sake.

Hi, posting here to see if there's a potential fix or if anyone has similar issues. My TF2 performance decreases the longer I play, and dramatically decreases after several maps to the point where recordings from OBS are noticeably laggier and less crisp than my first couple of maps. I've tried lots of things like verifying game cache, disabling/enabling fullscreen optimization, disabling/enabling hardware acceleration, clearing standby memory after each map, CCleaner to remove unnecessary drive files, keeping background programs and overlays to a minimum (no overalys at all), CPU and GPU temp stable and low (below 50c). I only have Windows Explorer, TF2, Malware Bytes/Bitdefender, OBS, RTX Voice, Flux, and MSI Afterburner open when I play.

I use mastercomfig medium-low with some module changes to improve specific graphics and enable ragdolls: https://i.imgur.com/g1gLVzm.png

My PC specs: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/cHRtz7

Wondering if this is a common issue or if there's a potential fix, or is it just a TF2 issue and not an issue with my computer/config/issue on my end? My TF2 starts off with pretty much perfect frames and incredibly smooth for the first map, and I think as soon as I tab out once or twice to edit OBS recordings (names and moving around recordings in Windows Explorer), my TF2 gradually decreases in performance until it becomes noticeable after a few maps, and pretty choppy and 'laggy' after several maps. Usually goes back to normal after closing TF2 and restarting my computer, first map is great then it gets worse from there. Appreciate any help or info about the topic, if it's fixable on my end, or just grin and bear it (restart computer after a while, etc). Cheers

What are your TF2 mods?

Pirateer5Hi, posting here to see if there's a potential fix or if anyone has similar issues. My TF2 performance decreases the longer I play, and dramatically decreases after several maps to the point where recordings from OBS are noticeably laggier and less crisp than my first couple of maps.

Do you have ragdolls=hidden set?

  1. You don't need cleaner or antivirus software; it's easy to dodge malware and protection from the OS is more than enough. They are usually just bloatware.
  2. Reduce the amount of (mostly heavy-resource) software used while playing TF2.

Is there a reason why my tf2 settings get reset sometimes? I try to change my in-game resolution in the video tab but the changes don't save when i relaunch. Many commands and binds won't save unless i hit "Ok" after I change each individual bind or setting. Technically yes I could just go through the long process of setting everything individually and adding width and height to the launch options but i'd like the problem to just be fixed so that i won't have to worry about it coming back in the future

TF2 is likely overriding some stuff through its config.cfg file. Just make it an empty file and set read-only.

Do check your config(s) though, as it may also cause problems if script code isn't written correctly.

Exactly the same problem. In my case, this is very noticeable when i am streaming and playing competitive.

I thought the problem was in the competitive. But sometimes it happens in public too.
Sometimes "record 1; stop" helps, but only sometimes. I can't even get close to understanding the logic of the problem

goughave you disabled steam cloud? my tf2 settings would never save until I disabled it.

yes and i've left the config.cfg file in the steam cloud folder in userdata blank (not deleted) and read-only. Sometimes tf2 settings just randomly turn off when i turned them on last time. the resolution thing was fixed by removing dxlevel commands from launch options, but not the settings stuff

This is a long shot but I'm mentioning it since its about the only thing I can think of that you haven't mentioned in your post.

In your power settings, do you have your power plan set to AMD Ryzen High Performance?

Hi, I don't have that option, I only have AMD Ryzen Balanced, but currently using basic High Performance

I tried the AMD power plan, as well as the normal High Performance and still experience bad perofrmance after a while with both power plans. Was having this issue before on my Ryzen 2700x and I was using that Ryzen High Performance plan and still seeing performance issues after several maps

MoermanI have exactly the same issue. Especially in combo with a recording software. Havent found a fix for it yet, but It doesnt sound like a cfg issue to me rn.

Do you guys use OBS and do you use Nvidia NVENC? I played for several maps today whilst only recording using ingame demos, and it wasn't nearly as bad as it usually is (with OBS recordings + tabbing out to change recording filenames). Wondering if changing to CPU-based encoding might work better or if you guys are already using CPU encoding and it's still bad? That's the only possible thing I can think of at the moment, really frustrating problem and hoping for any sort of fix

I tried to delete the game completely and play with the default version. Got better. Possibly hud?
