Team Fortress 2

Increased FPS Config

This tutorial will explain how to apply FPS config on TF2.
This config is mostly needed for people who run tf2 on an old GPU or old computer.

Ok, Step 1:

(Refer to screenshot A)

Got to: Steam Installation Directory > SteamApps > Common > Team Fortress 2 > TF > CFG
(Default installation directory is C:\Program Files\Steam)

Step 2:

(Refer to screenshot A)

Create a "New Text Document" in that folder.

Step 3:

(Refer to screenshot B)

Copy the following script to the text document you just created:

echo "Fps config loaded!"
// ---CONFIG END---

Step 4:

(Refer to screenshot C)

Save the file, and rename it to "autoexec.cfg" (Without the quotes)

Step 5:

(Refer to screenshot D)

  1. Open Steam
  2. Right click on TF2
  3. Go to Properties
  4. Press launch options
  5. add these commands there "-dxlevel 81 -width 1024 -height 768" (Without the quotes)
  6. You can change the resolution, I just wrote what I use.
  7. To change resolution just change the -witdh and -height numbers to your needs.

You're done!

Once you launch the game, it should open the console and write there "Fps config loaded!"

Notes:

  • If you minimize the game with this config on, and then restore it, you will get black models everywhere. To fix that, you need to type "retry" in the console.
  • If you want to stop the game from opening the console with "Fps config loaded!" each time it is loaded, go to the autoexec.cfg file and delete last 4 lines.
  • Config is not made by me, I just slightly modified it. All the credit for the config goes to m3lior from GotFrag.

Enjoy! :)

    If you could just help by telling me which commands specifically affect thsoe two so that i may delete them, that'd be much appreciated!

    Everything ok in there apart from "mat_bumpmap "0" - change that to "1" if u wanna use this cfg otherwise it destroys the models so they look shiny white like glass and u can barely tell whether they are red or blu team. Everything else well chosen.

    Go!!! Get to the chopper!!!
