Fix Your Lag with This Config

Post by obituary on Mon Dec 23, 2013 12:28 am

Make a file in notepad and paste this text:

seta rate 30000
seta cg_optimizeprediction 0
seta cg_smoothclients 0
seta cl_maxpackets 100
seta cl_packetdup 0
seta cl_timenudge -30
seta com_hunkmegs 256
seta com_zonemegs 64
seta com_maxfps 125
seta cg_drawfps 1
seta cg_lagometer 1
seta cg_drawclock 1
seta cg_drawtimer 1
seta cg_atmosphericeffects 0
seta r_lodbias 0
seta r_picmip 0
seta r_mode "4"
seta r_roundImagesDown 0
seta r_fullscreen "1"
seta pb_sleep 500
seta pb_system 0
seta pb_security 0
seta cg_bobup 0
seta cg_bobpitch 0
seta cg_bobroll 0
seta cg_bobyaw 0
seta cg_runpitch 0
seta cg_runroll 0
seta r_finish 0            
seta r_detailtextures 0    
seta r_subdivisions 999   
seta cg_shadows 0          
seta cg_wolfparticles 0     
seta r_fastsky 1       


Then save this file as "autoexec.cfg" (without the ".txt" extension at the end) in your "Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory/etmain" folder. It should go in etmain, not jaymod.

When you start ET after that, type this in your console:

/exec autoexec.cfg

Then restart ET again and it should run a lot better.

You can google all these cvars and learn about them, or just trust me and use them and not waste your time reading all that stuff. The only one you might have trouble with is cl_timenudge, as some other servers consider it a cheat (I don't know why) so you might not want to use it if you play a lot of places, or just set it to 0 if you go somewhere they don't like it. Otherwise enjoy. You're welcome Smile

Thanks Obit. I rarely see lag except when server is FULL. I am going to use this file. Every little bit helps. Like a Star @ heaven

If you have an old computer with a bad graphics card you may want to reduce your graphics quality even more.

You can reduce your graphics quality quickly with these cvars:

seta r_lodbias 2 (instead of 0 as above).
seta r_picmip 2 (instead of 0 as above)

This will look fuzzy, but will help you if you have a ten year old graphics card. Otherwise it is just ugly and will give you a headache.

Another note: usually you use "set" for setting cvars, but for graphics cvars or memory cvars you usually need to restart the game, so you want to use "seta" instead of "set" so it stays written to the game when you restart it. Seta is written into your game cfg, while set is only for the current instance of ET.

For those of us fortunate enough to have good graphics, you may want to increase your resolution to have a more enjoyable game.

The config settings above will still help you with optimizing your network settings and memory, but you may not want to have your resolution reduced.

The r_mode cvar in the config above is set to "4", which is a great setting if you have an average system and don't want to have any lag from your graphics. You can set it higher for a better picture and find a sweet spot that works for your hardware and personal preference.

Just set r_mode to 5 or 6, or you can customize it to your exact screen resolution. Go to your desktop properties and see what your current resolution is, then add this to your config:

seta r_mode -1
seta r_customHeight ####
seta r_customWidth ####

(where #### is whatever values your height and width is in your desktop properties)

This will give you the most accurate and best looking display for your game.

Obit the problem I'm having is that I have another sytem at the shop that I tried to install  the autoexec.cfg as you wrote.  Put it in the etmain and renamed it but when I go into the console and type /exec autoexec.cfg it says can not execute autoexec.cfg.  What to do?  This system here is another IP adress and really only used to watch the game not so much play it but I am getting some lag just watching.  I am at level 0 on this system so maybe that is why I can not execute some commands?

If you renamed autoexec, use the new name you gave it instead of autoexec ;]
Also I would add "vid_restart" at the bottom of this file. They won't have to restart the game to see the effects.

Old Man you may not have sufficient administrator privileges on that new computer to execute the cfg. Be sure to right click on your ET shortcut or .exe file and select "Run as administrator". Then you should be able to run the /exec autoexec.cfg in your console within the game.


This is a common problem for computers running windows vista, 7 or 8.

I did that but no go.  I did some digging on the web and found that if there are any discrepancies with the .cfg file it will give me the error I got.  I played with it here on my home system  and will look at it when it quits snowing here in Atlanta and am able to open my shop.  Thanks.
