In the gaming world, settings can make or break your gameplay experience. As the release date for Counter-Strike 2 (CS2) approaches, players are on the hunt for the optimal video settings. Who better to turn to than the renowned player, Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev? Let’s dive into the settings that s1mple swears by.
CS2, though a new entrant, has been reported to have fps issues, especially for those with low-end computers. However, for those with high-end builds, s1mple’s settings might be the golden ticket. It’s worth noting that while s1mple has toned down most of his video settings, players with older computer builds might still face stuttering. This is expected to change as Valve addresses the fps-related issues in CS2.
S1mple’s Recommended Video Settings
Here’s a breakdown of s1mple’s video settings, as revealed during a live stream:
- Video Brightness: 100%
- Aspect Ratio: 4:3
- Resolution: 1280×960
- Player Contrast: Disabled
- Multisampling Anti-aliasing Mode: 8XMSAA
- Global Shadow Quality: Low
- Model/Texture Detail: Low
- Shader Detail: Low
- Particle Detail: Low
- NVIDIA Reflex Low Latency: Disabled
- Ambiance Occlusion: Disabled
- FidelityFX Super Resolution: Disabled
These settings are a starting point. Depending on your computer’s capabilities, you might need to adjust them to achieve the best gameplay experience.
Despite having a good setup, some players still experience lag. While Valve hasn’t officially commented on these lag issues, the gaming community has found some console commands that might help:
- cl_updaterate 128
- cl_interp_ratio 1
- cl_interp “0.015625” (for stable connections)
- cl_interp “0.03125” (for unstable connections)
