Chris' fps config

Posting the config made by a friend of mine, [FB]Chris the Medical Marvel.

http://fakkelbrigade.eu/chris/configs/

the "moreframes" config looks better than M0re's config while giving a better framerate, varying between 5 and 20 fps reported by users.

How to use:

Click on the name to select the config you want, copy/paste the config into an empty notepad document and save as autoexec.cfg (if you already have one, just copy/paste the config into that) under "all files" in the steam -> steamapps -> *accountname* -> team fortress 2 -> tf -> cfg

What do you mean?

It looks better in terms of graphical quality and provides a framerate boost compared to M0re's. A friend of mine used M0re's and stayed at 65fps (lowest value), with the moreframes.cfg from Chris he never dips below 75.

The High FPS gives more FPS.
Anyway, I'm going to try MaxFrames.
Thanks for the heads up

Average improvement from Quantum’s ultrahighfps:

Chris’ maxframes: 34.50%

Chris’ moreframes: 131
m0re’s fps: 155
m0re’s highfps: 152

I'm getting shiny models that I got with m0re's fps config, but I can't remember which command it was that affected it. I remember disabling one for m0re's and fixing it. Can anyone help?

EDIT: Never mind, I found it. It was mat_bumpmap.

Also the game seems kinda misty. Like there's a constant layer of dust in the air.

I think they just increased gamma so it looks a bit weird.

I switched from Quantum's Little Config to this one and I'm experiencing massive FPS fluctuation to the point where it hinders gameplay. The FPS will go high (to 150) and then to low (red) and it's extremely distracting.

Hopefully I didn't forget anything: I looked over the entire config and made sure to adjust my launch settings appropriately.

Just a question. In the moreframes config, why is Anisotropic Filtering set to x16, since only some of the newest cards will benefit from it (most lose fps)?

Quote:
mat_forceaniso "16"
All it does is filter the textures more throughly, which can be accomplished with mat_picmip -3 (instead of -1) or so.

If you don't know, it's just a question. You didn't make this. Still gonna try it.

He didn't, but I did

In the competitive scene even a lot of people with good cards use FPS configs to make the game environment less distracting, moreframes is mostly designed for people who want some sort of median between good quality and good smoothness in game.

I might lower it to 8 or 4 in the next version, I'm still determining what my demographic for that config is.

This config is not designed to be run in dxlevel 9x, and I do not support it.

If you do want to run it in dx9 (but I don't support it, as I say), main things to change are mat_bumpmap and r_pixelfog.

Not had any other reports of this, would it be possible to get system specs?
