Increasing game FPS



  • 1. Enable multicore rendering for roughly double your FPS
    Go to your cfg folder. Example: SteamApps\common\GarrysMod\garrysmod\cfg
    Open or create autoexec.cfg
    Put at the end:

    gmod_mcore_test "1"
    

    Enable multicore rendering in the game’s video options.
    This is an experimental option and you may experience more crashing or graphical glitches when this option is on.

    2. Disable costumes for ~10 extra FPS on a full server
    Bring up your chat to open the top menu. Go to options and disable costumes.

    3. If all else fails, you can start disabling and lowering video options.

  • mcore_test is too volatile to trust, it almost guarantees a crash every 1-2 hours

    something that added a bit of FPS to my game was mat_queue_mode 2 (i think that was it, box knows for sure)

    using gmod_mcore_test 1 and mat_queue_mode 2 in conjunction will significantly increase your FPS, much higher than using gmod_mcore_test alone



  • Which is also a form of multicore rendering.



  • I find that I have to disable gmod_mcore_test, if I join eft.
    The gmod client hangs as soon as this single-click overlay appears.
    The team selection screen after that works perfectly fine, and so does actual gameplay.

    Edit: issue seems to be fixed on gmod pre-release branch.
