PeteAimIsADickPeteAimIsADickyo 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

you have no idea what you're talking about and it shows

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

IT CACHES LOCALLY YOU DUMB FUCK

Again there is still a difference in DNS resolving, even with local caching. Cached domains have a time-to-live (TTL) which can vary. What is the TTL for domains used by TF2 and Steam?

AimIsADickAlso we found some new launch options in the 2018 leak. Aside from that though, yeah there isn't much left to do.

You found some new launch options. mastercomfig has already been documenting the live game's launch options and which ones to use for years.

AimIsADickAgain there is still a difference in DNS resolving, even with local caching. Cached domains have a time-to-live (TTL) which can vary. What is the TTL for domains used by TF2 and Steam?

In Source and Steam, DNS names are resolved once on connect/query. Then it uses the IP directly. Each packet send does not resolve the domain name again.

Did you think that it was resolving DNS 66 times per second or something? How would it affect performance?

Also, I don't mean to discourage you from trying new things, but I do encourage you to learn, and collaborate with others rather than spontaneously release something like this, with information against what others have advised before.

Yeah and I can't believe I even thought that. I still think changing DNS servers is important, but more as an OS optimization and less of a TF2 one.

I did ask for feedback earlier on, but I did it only on this site (and that was a huge mistake), so I pretty much done it without any feedback.

i promise u will be 1000x happier and more successful if u put your time towards literally anything else than trying to reinvent the wheel recreating mastercoms' work optimizing a 14 year old dead game

maybe if u went to college and took a single class on computer science u would understand how DNS worked (lucky for u theres a million online courses and lectures to watch and educate yourself for free)

I wasn't trying to reinvent the wheel at all. Was just trying to clarify some stuff, but ultimately that did not go well.

bearodactylmaybe if u went to college and took a single class on computer science u would understand how DNS worked (lucky for u theres a million online courses and lectures to watch and educate yourself for free)

But college is unnecessarily expensive and it feels like a huge scam considering the (I haven't researched yet) chances of actually landing a job that you worked your degree for these days. I still fear being 4 years in college and graduating only to not land a single job that I got my degree for.

(Reminder that this guide is unfinished and I specifically marked it as such.)

College can help a lot with getting a job, but it's obviously not the only path to getting a job. But if you don't go to college, you have to make up for it a lot with solid networking, applying for tons of jobs, and having strong outside stuff on your resume. Disregarding the job stuff, education is good for you anyways, even if you don't get it at college. It'll help you perform well in your life and job. You seem like an eager high school student, put your energy into research and learning and then you can come back to stuff once you've built up with learning and practice!

Your guide is completely unfocused, unresearched and highly opinionated, most people just see that as a lost cause. In your guide you tell people to stop using Steam. Sure, out of context it's technically correct that you can close Steam to free up resources but don't you see how rediculous that is to include in your TF2 optimisation guide?

dozens of people telling you what you are writing is blatantly wrong maybe you listen
no, seriously
i was going to reassure you and tell you maybe you should focus on getting better at the game instead, or find someting better to waste your time on this game like making friends, or exploring the gamemodes, or practicing dm

what you are instead doing is keep posting "easily digestible performance guides" and giving out advice on a forum filled with people who have thousands of hours in the game, with, evidently lack of expertise in all of the topics you mention

i dont want to deduce your age, intellectual level or mental health state, and immediately come across as rude,(which i am to be fair) i just want to hit you with a reality check - everything about your posts on this forum seem out of place, including but not limited to: the knowledge you posess, the formatting, the persistence in which you post and respond with, the inability to think critically of yourself and evaluating your posts, incredible lack of self projection in compliance with the audience you are trying to slip this to

literally, last month a guy posted an obvious copypaste to which unsurprisingly, you unironically responded only reinforcing my view on you as incapable to critically think, evaluate and self project

take your time, take your time with your posts, take your time with your life, if anything you are running out of it, all while pointlessly spending it on a videogame forum where unfortunately you are of little help, fighting against the crowd, which in a society has next to none success rate

take fucking care
