Improve Hitbox Registration

THIS APPLIES MOSTLY TO THE NEW SOURCE GAMES LIKE DOD SOURCE BETA, AND TEAM FORTRESS 2, BUT IT MAY ALSO WORK WITH REGULAR DOD SOURCE.

You may have noticed in the new source games that there is this 'Lerp' stat in the new net_graph command. While you may not know what this is, it's very important to keep it at a constant number, and make sure that it never turns orange.

This 'Lerp' stat is basically the hitbox delay between you, the server, and other other players, having this balanced out or synched with the server is very important.

Many people might complain about the hitboxes in DOD being to small, or too big, or the registry sucks; but for the most part it's totally client side usually having to do with incorrect default commands that you must fix yourself.

If you're one of these people suffering from your shots not registering on servers, there are a few commands that can solve this quite well. I've play tested these myself and seen a vast improvement.

New Source Engine Games (DOD:S, TF2, HL2: EP2)

Place the following lines into the autoexec.cfg in the games/cfg directory: cl\_cmdrate "67" cl\_updaterate "67" cl\_interp ".033" cl\_interp\_ratio "1" rate "30000"

Old Source Engine Games (Counter-Strike: Source, Half Life 2: Deathmatch)

Place the following lines into the autoexec.cfg in the games/cfg directory: rate "30000" cl\_cmdrate "80" cl\_updaterate "20" cl\_interp "0.033"

^^ Tested on Listen server and lowered ping from 20ms to 0-2ms.

If that folder doesn't have an autoexec.cfg file in it already, create your own by opening notepad, paste the commands above in the file, and save the file as 'autoexec.cfg'.

    Posted by Silent Ricochet I've tested them, and they work nicely.
    Erm, for you... but not other people... It means that other people wont be able to hit you as well. Therefore giving you an advantage. Well never mind anyway, your rates for the new source engine work perfectly anyway :)

    Thanks, I'll look into fixing the old source engine rates.

    Posted by Bi0h4z4rd Erm, You have added the wrong rates for the old games. Those rates are not allowed in leagues and are just not the normal. It's supposed to be 250000 100 100
