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.

@nickbudi,

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 ---- https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=2117-ILZV-2837

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

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

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 :)

@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?

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?

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.

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

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.
