man just post on reddit. i promise nobody on this website is going to use your fps guide unless they intend on making fun of you. i get that you're trying to do the community a favor but it's been done time and time again by more qualified individuals. unless the game gets some kind of major update there's no need for anything new. mastercoms is basically a developer for this game at this point.

can you explain in clear concise points how a Domain Name System improves network performance in tf2 or even general online gaming? I'm lost on how you even came up with that

It took me two months to get this far because I get way too much homework.

fygwhy is your name AimIsADick

Because my aim sucks.

Thing is that there aren't many good guides out there. I think mastercoms would be able to write a damn good guide, but I thought that she would get overworked or something, and I wanted more knowledge with networking and hardware, so I took the opportunity to try to make a guide that wasn't shitty.

elektrocan you explain in clear concise points how a Domain Name System improves network performance in tf2 or even general online gaming? I'm lost on how you even came up with that

ISP DNS servers are the defaults and are commonly used. Unfortunately they often aren't as reliable as non-ISP DNSes servers and often track what sites you visit! e.g Cloudflare or Google DNS servers are a lot more reliable than Comcast or AT&T's DNS servers, and the former (supposedly) doesn't track you.

bro a dns server only returns the ip of a hostname lookup (in the context of tf2), what impact does it have on your performance beyond saving microseconds when you're connecting to a server.

honestly all this comes off as u speaking authoritatively about subjects you seem to not have much knowledge about

we'll see who's laughing when he beats you into the server by 100ms because his DNS lookup was faster, bucko. I bet you still store your content on magnetic disc arrays

visual pack isnt even performance its just QoL (other than the lag with dragons fury and like level 1 dispenser LOD lol) and i regret to inform you that most players do not care about visual glitches on this forum and comtress 2 in my eyes is a "what could be" scenario but at the end of the day, nothing can be done.

honestly all this comes off as u speaking authoritatively about subjects you seem to not have much knowledge about

One millisecond (hell even one microsecond, which makes no sense) makes a huge difference in networking. Querying an IP from a hostname still requires multiple servers (ignoring caches of course):

  1. DNS recursor
  2. Root Nameserver
  3. Top-Level Domain nameserver
  4. Authoritative name server

Also keep in mind that different DNS server hosters use different methods, so the performance will vary greatly. So reducing DNS latency will make a difference in network performance.

It's a mod so there is no downside to using it and you fix some bugs.

yo DNS info is cached your computer doesn't ask for the IP every time it sends a packet. if you connect to a server with a hostname it will only be looked up once

That's why I stated "ignoring caching of course" in my previous post. Besides there is still a noticeable difference even with caching.
