Ping / Fps
Here are two very coveted word by gamers! Ping and fps are one common word, since the game network, debate, discussion made, there are a few sites dedicated to these two concepts! But why we talk so much? What do these terms mean?
Definition of Terms:
Ping: The ping is the latency; ie; the time it takes for data to be exchanged between you and the game server! Obviously you will understand, the greater the ping is low, the game is more fluid, fast (depending on connection type)!
FPS: The FPS or frames per second "match the refresh rate of the screen, it is more or less the number of frames per second! Unlike ping, the more the higher fps the game will be smooth!
To summarize, the more you have a low ping and a large number of fps, you will be more effective for a part for gaming because you can react quickly and the game will be smooth!
There are a few tips to resolve, follow the tips below:
To ping all ,say now, there is no miracle! There are a few programs that "so-called" slightly improve response time but they are of questionable effectiveness.
Ping directly depends on your connection! Adsl connection with a classical (512/128) you have between 50 and 90 ping (as suppliers)! But for those who have the chance to benefit from different Telecom, offers the "Ping" that goes in your connection mode FastPath "which reduces your ping (ping between 10 and 30)!
That said, there are still settings in your config.cfg possible because the default values are not always fair when it comes to ping!
Open your config.cfg, we will work on 4 commands:
-rate: Often this command is not in the file, therefore you must add it! Recommended values: 4000 for a 56k, 9000 for a 512/128 connection, 10,000 for the upper connections! (However it should be noted that this value is often blocked by the servers to 9999 or 9000 with the command sv_maxrate)
-cl_rate: same value as the rate! Add the command in your config.cfg if it is not there!
-cl_updaterate: 35 to 56k, 65 for a 512/128 connection and 100 for a superior connection!
-cl_cmdrate: same value as the cl_updaterate.
This is your config.cfg which is now set! There's nothing to hit to improve your ping! The only advice I can give you is to cut anything that requires resources (firewall, software, chat im's, ...) while you play!
After you see the ping varies depending on the server where you play some servers are abroad and therefore have higher pings, like good US servers where your ping will be correct.
