View Full Version : How I doubled my KD Ratio in CS Source

OMG... After weeks of getting more deaths than kills on every single game, I just spent 3 hours on various servers with a 2:1 Kill-Death ratio.

I don't think I changed, but I did do some tweaks to me cfg file:


rate 10000
cl_updaterate 50
cl_cmdrate 30
cl_cmdbackup 5
cl_smooth 0


After this my pings were lower (probably from increasing the rates) and setting cl_smooth to off seemed to fix the laggy hitboxes.

These may or may not work for you.

There is a detailed list of commands here:

I always play with: rate 25000, cl_updaterate 101, cl_cmdrate 101 and cl_smooth 0

If you have to run with cl_cmdbackup at *5* you have a problem with your connection.

That can introduce lag to your connection.

If you have a stable connection, the default of cl_cmdbackup 2 is more than sufficient.

Whats your modems upstream/downstream ?

I get 384 kbit up, 3 mbit down.

Won't setting it too high just cause more lost packets? Isn't the rate limited by the server tic rate anyway? I haven't seen a server with over 100 tick.

If you go to high you get Choke I think, not loss.. or perhaps both?

Yeah, and we all know how bad it is to choke your packet on a public server :o

Sweet I played some last night on HardOCP's servers and did OK. Came out ahead 12:10 on the first game, broke even the second game, and then did pretty well on the third round 22:8.

what helped me alot was using "cl_crosshairscale 2500". default for small crosshairs is 1200. helps me aim alot better with the tiny crosshairs.
