    low fps

    Hello, im expiriencing problem that my fps is jumping like all the time, at 1 moment is normal 125, and on another mom it jumps to 50 or smthing, make's it rly hard to play...Dunno why is this happening if we take in mind that I can lock 250fps on game's such as call of duty 4 which is taking much more resources then ET.

    Im using the cfg also, here is the copy of it:

    Hmm, there isn't much to change in your cfg (btw, some of the values you have ar enot allowed in etpro servers, but I guess you don't play that mod)

    you have:
    com_maxfps 60 (set to 125, otherwise you won't get more than 60...)
    r_ignorefastpath 1 (0 is faster)
    r_lodbias 2 (a low value means more details, try something like 7)
    r_lodcurveerror 250 (250 is default, try 60)
    snaps 40 (set it to 20, 40 makes no sense at all, because all servers run at 20fps and asking for 40 is stupid, at most you can get some duplicate useless frames and waste bandwidth)

    other things for more fps or better gameplay:
    cg_coronas 0
    cg_atmosphericeffects 0
    cg_bloodtime 0
    cg_bloodflash 0

    If you play in servers with punkbuster you can try this:
    pb_system 0 // you can try 1 as well, 0 is the one I use
    pb_security 0
    pb_sleep 500
    pb_writecfg

    And check if other processes are using your cpu or harddrive while you play, use process explorer, or any other software that shows you per-process cpu usage, and io history graphs.

    If you play in servers with big open maps and too many players, it's normal to have some fps drops, but 50 is a bit too low. I get 50 sometimes, but my cpu is slower than yours.

    p.s.
    you say that cod4 takes more resources than et, I don't know how you checked this or you are just guessing it, but if it was true then you would have more fps in et than cod. If you have less in et it means et needs more resources than cod.

    ET is CPU based, rather than using a graphics card. That's why I get high FPS on Skyrim but not on ET
    Just put in quote.

    It's not true. You can check it yourself ingame, by changing r_lodbias to different values, while standing in front of a player.
    With a high lodbias you will get the simplified player model you normally have from a distance, even in close range.

    He said cod takes more resources than et. He probably just thought 'et is old, so it uses less resources', so it was (probably) just a guess, he (probably) didn't do any kind of benchmark nor checked cpu or gpu usage in any way. My comment was just about that, I didn't want to go into details.

    p.s.
    your low graphic config has some cvars which are limited in many servers (etpro especially), for example r_subdivisions and r_lodcurveerror.
    r_simpleMipMaps 0 is slower than 1
    p.p.s.
    quote properly, don't edit my posts

    Run taskmgr, and for ET.exe :

    set CPU affinity on the second core
    set process-priority to high

    From 50, my FPS go to 80-90 if I do it on a Pentium4 HT + 7600GT

    Try it xD
