Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need this?

Even though TF2 is an old game, it has gone through so many updates and patches that it is now quite difficult run it at 120+ frames per second on mid-tier PC. And that is absolutely required for playing fast paced shooter comfortably. This app generates a set of premade settings that helps your game to run faster and smoother.

My game controls and binds act werid, some keys are not working.

Please make sure you have installed it on 100% default, clean TF2 with absolutely no configs and custom files. You may also have to disable Steam Cloud as it may restore some old settings. You can wipe all your custom stuff by removing the /cfg and /custom folders from your /tf folder and launching the game with -autoconfig launch option. If you are sure that you did everything right and that there is an error on this site - you are welcome to join our Discord where you can report a problem or ask for help.

Is there a chance to add X feature?

Yes! You are more then welcome to suggest anything you'd like. If it is reasonable and is possible to implement, it is going directly to the to-do list. Hit us up on Discord!

The file/config is outdated.

We try to keep all the stuff up to date, but since there are no static links provided by config authors, all the files have to be updated manually so there may be a delay. Feel free to inform us if we need to update anything.

Can I put my own settings or binds? How do I do that?

Of course you can. There is a "Custom binds/settings" tab at the end of the generator where you can put any custom commands you like. They will overwrite existing settings so be careful. Also, its good to have a general idea about Source games scripting when doing things like this.

My TF2 looks like poop. I didn't select the worst config here.

First of all, make sure you are using the launch options provided. Secondly, remember - you will generally always have to sacrifice something to see a performance increase. Or spend a lot of money on good PC and play without gfx config at all.

Where do I change settings after I have installed this?

Inside your /tf/cfg folder there are going to be several files:

binds.cfg - keyboard mappings

settings.cfg - general TF2 settings like viewmodels, hitsounds, etc.

gfx.cfg - the entire graphics config.
