If you comment out

if %TEAM != #TEAM_SPECTATOR

in default/weaponlist.hud
//

//if %TEAM != #TEAM_SPECTATOR

then the game gets a lot smoother,
mouse movements feel more precise and not so limited/jerky.
Any ideas?

Hey sup thanks for the post. I guess it's possible but I normally wouldn't trust my own impression of smoothness without a high fps camera + lighting etc.

r_multithreading 0 seems to help some as well :D

Thanks for report, I'll check it. Anyway it is quite strange. Why only in weaponlist.hud?)

suo, you can try following things to speed up the game and to smooth it:

cl_pps 62 (client packets per second sent to the server, only if you have good connection)
cl_fps 500 (more like client side ticks per second, in theory should make mouse input smoother, r_fps is for the screen fps)
m_filter 0, m_raw 1 (just in case)

r_soft_particles 0 - makes huge performance boost
r_swapinterval 0 - vsync, if it enabled it produces huge input lag as well as limits fps to the screen refresh rate.

Also you should try lower profiles to get more performance, higher and stable fps usually makes less input lag.

p.s. r_multithreading 0 will help only on really old machines, on 2011+ hardware it gives more fps instead.

It's not about fps (125). Mouse movement itself is oddly "shut" using default hud (unlike classical), there is an inclination to overturn, relaxing aim feels impossible. It's like there is now built-in glide somehow, mouse lags behind crosshair.

Created defaulthudfix_3.pk3 with the file
hud\inc\default\weaponlist.hud
containing one line:

setCustomWeaponSelect "/gfx/hud/default/weaponlist/blank.tga"


Now I can see where I turned or get sense of readjustment in movement after shot. The best I could describe what's happening. // 2.10.

Yeah this happens to me too. need lots of tweaking before the game feels smooth again and I can hit more than 15% lg

Some things that helped:

- When I changed my name from Mike^4JS to deadgame I got an extra 3%
- When I make the blue stripe in my finnish flag bind 2 lines instead of 1 that is an extra couple of %
- Crouch on shift vs ctrl is massive, maybe even 4-5% LG difference
- Always drop the bomb for an extra 1% accuracy
- Using !add instead of ++ seems to make some difference but it may be placebo. More testing needed

With these tweaks I can topscore pickups every time

I can confirm, using !add instead of ++ increases my EB accuracy by about 15%. I recommend this to everyone whos having trouble hitting EBs from time to time.

smearing butter on the bottom of your mouse and your fingers increases glide and decreases finger muscle impulse response time. that's +10% lg

@sup, So there are 4 huds available out of box:
default
classic
adem
spec

In which of those huds you have such problem as you described?

default, warsow 2.10
I am not sure what's the exact cause. Could be just cpu heavier. dunno

classic is smoother. :)
