    Hey,
    Not sure how many people are aware of this, but windows 10 fakes fullscreen mode to mimic borderless windowed. Borderless windowed causes input lag.

    Your game will feel a lot snappier if you go to your hl2.exe (gmod executable), right click, go to properties, select the compatibility tab, and check "disable fullscreen optimization"

    This is relevant with any game on windows 10

  3. -thread does nothing, it got removed and multi core rendering does it instead
    cl_cmdrate is capped at 66 (128 in newer engine versions of Source)
    cl_updaterate is capped at 66 (128 in newer engine versions of Source), both also should be the same
    rate 20000 is way lower than the default
    All of this to be adjusted according to your internet connection: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=366151973

    If you are getting stable framerates higher than 60, then you don't need to use low settings

    Also autoexec.cfg exists

    You'd want to though. This is about reducing input lag, not making your game look pretty.

  5. The FPS directly affects input lag, if you have stable framerates then you don't need to lower the settings

    Getting 300fps is better than getting 200fps, yes

  7. It makes no virtual difference past 144 FPS (also depends on your montior refresh rate, if its at 66 Hz, then you dont need more than 66 FPS)

    ThatAintFalco You should’ve followed the damn train CJ VIP

    This really helped me out. Though I still can’t reach 200 FPS.

  11. Any FPS higher than the refresh rate don't do anything???

    Visually, no. Your CPU and GPU being able to process more frames/second will help take commands from your mouse quicker.

    edit: Having 300 frames per second will produce a frame every 3.33 milliseconds. having 100 fps will produce a frame every 10 milliseconds. when your monitor refreshes, itll have the frame which was last produced by your GPU.

  13. This will make a difference at miniscule levels, you won't feel/notice a difference past your monitor's refresh rate

    This autoexec file helps out a lot with frame rate and input lag.

    Paste that before everything thats already in your autoexec.cfg file in (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\GarrysMod\garrysmod\cfg)

    edit: don't listen to that Spycrab dude, these are the only noticeable frame rate improvement commands you'll need. You don't need to define every single setting in your CFG file.
