Setting Up Launch Options for CS:GO

The launch options are some kind of game presets as to how it should work. This is how my personal launch parameters look like: -freq 240 -d3d9ex -novid -no-browser +mat_queue_mode 2 +fps_max 400 +cl_interp_ratio 1 +cl_interp 0 -tickrate 128 +cl_cmdrate 128 +cl_updaterate 128 +cl_forcepreload 1

-freq 240 —Sets the limit for the refresh rate of the monitor

-d3d9ex — A parameter that reduces the CPU memory usage by about 40%, the game minimizes and unfolds faster, its functioning is more stable. It won’t though help to everyone.

-novid — Disables the screensaver when the game starts

-no-browser — Steam Overlay optimization

+mat_queue_mode 2 — A very useful command because it turn-on multi-core processing, increases game performance.

+fps_max 400 — The limitation for fps up to the 400 mark (It varies from case to case, I don’t recommend setting the 0 value, as var and sv would grow)

+cl_interp_ratio 1, +cl_interp 0 — Basic client-side interpolation settings

-tickrate 128 — The preset tick rate is 128; on the servers of your lobby (For training), the tick rate will also be 128.

+cl_cmdrate 128, +cl_updaterate 128 — Rate settings

+cl_forcepreload 1 — All the temporary files are downloaded before entering the server, thus improving performance.
