Those are some juicy threading changes. I'd love to see some benchmarks or frame graphs with before/after.

Not at all detailed, and only a single run of each (not a bunch of samples), but on a computer with NO background tasks, running at 1440p max ingame settings, 5930k, GTX 1080:

TC2 0.0.16 dustbowlbench: 16250 frames 86.039 seconds 188.87 fps ( 5.29 ms/f) 26.496 fps variability
TF2 8/27/20 dustbowlbench: 16250 frames 94.149 seconds 172.60 fps ( 5.79 ms/f) 14.829 fps variability

I'll be grabbing frametimes comparisons later. Those are more helpful for this sort of thing, but I just didn't have the time before.

This demo is spectating a full lobby of bots (can't remember if 24 or 32) fighting on Dustbowl's first map, until they cap the final point.

ScrewBIf this is being looked at by Valve is there any possibility of bringing mat_picmips below -1? You used to be able to read the signs on the walls with -5 and the textures had less compression artifacts. Seems to me this should be the default for ultra textures considering almost every graphics card from the last decade can run this setting with little to no performance impact.

Mat_picmip < -1 can cause issues with some hardware and assets. The better way to handle this is to just generate those assets with proper mips in the first place, but then you're talking about asset changes as opposed to code changes, so that's kind of outside the scope of this project.

If this gains a foothold with Valve, and we're able to contribute directly to the live game, then absolutely, it's something we'll look into.

#541 yttrium's competitive viewmodels in Customization

I am honestly astonished that Valve randomly fixed this, but am not at all surprised that a few console commands can be used to work around their fix.

I'll include it in the install instructions.

EDIT: Oh wait they're already in the instructions and I'm not even using them myself rofl

What's the production/staff team looking like?

I live two hours away and my brother lives 20 minutes outside of Philly, I could easily attend and help out.

Any idea what's going on here (text color)? Why is it offset?

#297 yayahud in Customization

Been playing a bit more MvM recently and want to definitely get this polished up. As it currently stands though a lot of things are outright broken, so it's not like I'm just sitting on an update that I haven't pushed.

#5 google chrome help in Off Topic
SnackIf #3 didn't work, check if you have Javascript disabled from your Chrome settings. Enable it if it isn't already.

to add onto this, since uBlock is one of the plugins installed, it's possible JS is disabled on a per-site basis through uBlock rather than Chrome.

#4 Missing text??? in TF2 General Discussion

Macs consistently have trouble with font rendering. I've seen this myself over time.

Not sure what to tell you. If it's happening in the default HUD, report it to Valve.

#5 Transparent "Missing Texture" Glitch in Q/A Help
switeNope, but you were the one that made that mod right ;)

I didn't make the transparent viewmodel mod. It requires HDR and motion blur, and uses a transparent VMT layered over the whole screen with some shader tricks, so I thought maybe it was related to that.

I hope this one works, we'll see when i start working on the thing. Otherwise i'm out of luck

Says it right in the description. That's for goldsrc, not Source.
