Thanks for helping out @Iraos @Rashy

@soflotc Unlike previous versions of CS there are barely any commands outside of the settings panel that will be able to improve your FPS in CS:GO :(
You could play at a lower resolution to improve your FPS a little.

Hey Budi,
I just started playing. I know what to do with the autoexe.cfg, but dont know what/or where i'm supposed to put the video.txt. :(

@xplay51 video.txt goes in the cfg folder as well.

Thanks for hooking it up with your config but for some reason this got kicked out to me while I was playing competitive...

"An issue with your computer is blocking the VAC system. You cannot play on secure servers."

Here's the link I got routed to after I got disconnect ----

What do I do? Anyone is welcome to chime in, thanks in advance.

nickbudi commented Dec 7, 2015

@Sickyota follow the direction given on that steam support page. My config doesn't cause this issue.

Sickyota commented Dec 7, 2015

Thanks again @nickbudi, I should've just done this in the beginning but I wasn't thinking.

hubwub commented Jan 12, 2016

This location ...\Steam\userdata\<Steam3 ID>\730\local\cfg is in regards to syncing your cfg files on Steam.

When you run autoexec.cfg and you have it write to config.cfg, the one stored in ...\Steam\userdata\<Steam3 ID>\730\local\cfg gets written not the one in ...\Steam\steamapps\common\Counter-Strike Global Offensive\csgo\cfg

If you don't want it to sync on Steam, you can add this to launch options -autoconfig +cl_cloud_settings 0

this config gave me huge fps boost i was getting around 120-250 fps and a bit stuttering.after this 250-400fps runs so smooth not kidding!!! only i didnt take the key bindings from it.thanks dude

Hey Nick
I was wondering what these two commands do.

bind . "say .budibudibudibudi;say .ready;say !ready" // custom ready for pugs
bind / "say ;say .dbserver; say .players" // bitcoins

Thank you in advance.

Hey, for some reason when i use these settings the radar is super small (that's probably how you have it) but i really wanna make it bigger through the auto exec, unfortunately i can't find the command (I don't wanna do it through the cs console or UI)
Any help much appreciated :)

Copy link

heliix commented May 29, 2016

NM i got it :) if anyone is wondering its cl_hud_radar_scale "1.00000"

neluipx commented Oct 11, 2016

if i put in launch options "-freq 144 -refresh 144" this options game don't run, you know the problem?
also FPS remain to be limited by 30, if i look fps_max value it is "999" FIX

Copy link

@nickbudi Thank you for this great help, can you please just clarify me something?
I have a 60hz monitor, so what commands should I use instead of the -freq 144 -refresh 144?

This is from BananaGaming's config:

rate "786432" //Max rates. Only use if you can get 8 Megabits per second (Mbps) download speed or more.
//rate "250000" //Only use this if you can get 3.5 Megabits per second (Mbps) download speed or more.

Dumolko commented Nov 26, 2017

As sammychch said, his FPS got a major increase with this config. I'm still getting my usual 50 after installing this and I've put the autoexec.cfg file into the right place. Is there anything I am doing wrong?

Copy link

DenisAlbu commented Jan 1, 2018

I believe having "fps_max 0" would un-cap the fps setting instead of "fps_max 999"
Both do the trick but in some cases, "fps_max 0" would result in a small fps boost.

ghost commented Mar 7, 2018

I believe having "fps_max 0" would un-cap the fps setting instead of "fps_max 999"

@D3n1s4 Having fps_max 0 makes your loading screens longer, fps_max 999 is much better.

Hi, i don't like 1280x960, i play on my native resolution 1920x1080, what are the best viewmodel/fov values for 1920x1080?

Copy link

Hey Budi, I can not put my clan tag in in the game settings It won't let me choose any, is it a command in your autoexec that I need to remove ?

Thanks for some great help in this thread


Copy link

Hey, can you update this autoexec please?

papricek commented Jul 6, 2019

in the config there is something that is terribly slowing down my computer - mac book pro, now on about 120FPS... any ideas what part of config is it? (used just the autoexec.cfg part, video.txt not yet)

Copy link

I like the buybinds cfg you have there, it works nicely and I can easily buy things I need using a couple of buttons and not flicking my cursor around a huge circle to get a p250 :/. The xhair, vmodel, and the sens work nice for me, as well as the warmup alias for offline servers.

All you do is type in your console: cl_clanid "0" and then you can select a clan id from the game options.

@jeffff13337 works like a charm, thx man!

I had to change net_client_steamdatagram_enable_override "1" to net_client_steamdatagram_enable_override "0". For some reason, it was preventing the ACCEPT button from showing so I could not get into a game.

How can I show the ping in the screen?
I tried net_graph "1" but it doesnt work
