    i thought everyone used LazP's config anyway
    but either way, nice work, it'll help people out that actually need to tweak it so things work instead of it just being a mess of coding and it also has the shit for multicore rendering too

    How noticeable are the differences of playing the game without and with your pastebin?
    Going give it a try at any rate and will report back here on my experiences with it at a later date.
    edit: it's supposed to be a .cfg file? IF so, people need to modify the file name if they download it.

    I made a clarification in my post, my apologies.
    You'll just want to copy & paste this into your existing, even though likely empty, autoexec.cfg. Or just over-write everything in there.

    The differences are dependent on machine and the scene being rendered, with a particularly powerful machine, in WW3RP, I notice ~5-40 FPS differences. Again, all depends on the scene rendered. My favorite tweaks are the clarity when I'm out on patrol, the distance is less dense and the lack of fog is really helpful.

    Also, I haven't crash in a bit :grinning:.

    m9kgaseffect thingie isn't needed on ww3's current weapon base. I removed all convars in it and just commented out the gas effect code so it is quite permanently disabled for everyone :grinning:

    Also nice cfg. Didn't know about menu_cleanupgmas, wish I had.

    Alright, I appreciate you telling me, honestly I always do that so I didn't notice.
    Also, the menu_cleanupgmas is printed in the console every time you start up the game. Took me almost 7,000 hours to notice myself :stuck_out_tongue:.
    Thanks for your reply, I feel all special now because your a developer.
    Merged:
    UPDATE

    • Removed "M9kGasEffect 0" because Gr4Ss has already removed it in his deviation of M9k's base. A thank you to him.
    • Removed two fog effects because they only applied when sv_cheats == 1.
    • Removed the r_drawsky cvar because it only applied when sv_cheats == 1.
    You won't need to really do anything to your config if you have it already, because it simply won't run the cvar. However I did this to keep things nice and clean and whatnot.

    Thanks again.

    dude who are you like I didn't invite you here?

    Seriously though, I noticed it in console when it was added, or maybe the changelog not sure which.
    Eh, regardless, thanks whoever you are. :stuck_out_tongue:

    There is little to no difference in visual fidelity, its core solvent is enabling queued (multi-threaded) processing.

    Just looked at it real quick, the only graphical differences you'll encounter is the lack of the map's background (which you may or may not notice, depends really, and its ugly regardless), specular lighting (that shiny shit that hurts the eyes) and the quality of the sky. Or rather the image you see when you look up, the sort of "wraps" if you will, around the sky box to give the idea that there is in-fact a sky.

    So, again, to put it simply:
    game looks almost the same, if not the same.
    game will run better, unless your hardware is absolute shite or you have an excessive, and I mean hundreds upon hundreds, of addons you're playing with at the same time.

    It's not the graphics hurting you. You'd have to be on hardware so old, that no config would get you to a stable game with good frames. The changes focus the config almost totally on multi-threaded processing and utilizing system resources, whereas previously I messed with HDR and the map's background (which causes errors on some maps).

    And thanks.

    This should work just as well if not better.
