Counter Strike: Source - texture questions

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey there, I'm wondering whether it's possible to change the textures of the maps in this game to low resolution ones, for example ones with only one colour in one texture... I know GameBanana has a section for textures, but I'm wondering if I used an extremely simple one, would I get a higher framerate in game?

I get an average of 50fps when looking at nothing in particular, but when I look towards a crowd of people, it drops to 13~ fps and it's quite hard to aim... I'm wondering whether different textures would increase my fps?

Also, if this is possible, are the textures allowed to be used online on a VAC-secured server? If not, is there any other great ways I can improve my overall framerate?

Thanks a lot

There are various configs used for the exact same you're talking about, as well as taking out ragdolls, barrels, etc. I haven't played in a while so I can't exactly remember which one, but I think you'll be able to find them at FPSbanana.

Ah yeah, I think I've seen a few of these configs around... I tried out one before, but it annoyed me because it removed Sprays (I like to show off mine ^^) and no matter which options I changed, I couldn't get the sprays to show up again. I'll check the site out, thanks for your post

You've got to be running something ancient if you can't play a source game..

People can still see your sprays, you just can't see the spray. Sprays are pretty lame anyway.

If you want a performance boost, just use a config.

Two processors: 3.06ghz each.
2GB DDR RAM
1GB Radeon HD 4650 graphics card

I know my RAM is ancient, but I don't plan to upgrade until I get some money to build my own computer. I'm not sure whether I have it enabled, lemme check. Also, what does multicore rendering do?

My computer isn't great, and I can run it but I just don't get a good enough framerate for my liking.

I know that, but I like to see others sprays too, but that's just me..
Any config recommendations?
