Black Ops Tweaks & FPS config

BLACK OPS TWEAKS. Most people playing the latest Call of Duty: Black Ops game is most likely wondering how to tweak the settings in Black Ops for a much greater gaming experience. I’ve written a couple of commands you can used below that can give a little boost in Black Ops:

Edit mp_config (for multiplayer)
Find mp_config.cfg, right click it and edit with notepad. You can also test the Black Ops tweaks directly via the console (~ -key or § -key) however some require the games graphic engine to be restarted in order to actually be enabled.

/cg_drawfps
Enable it in order to check the FPS (Frames Per Second) your getting.

/r_multiGpu
Should be enabled if you have two (or more) graphics cards OR a graphics card with more then one GPU. If you don’t you can actually still try to enable it since some people got a boost in COD4 (Modern Warfare) even though they hadn’t multiple GPU’s.

/r_multithreaded_device
You should have a multi core CPU to play Black Ops in order to get descent FPS in the game at all. Try setting it on “1″ -OR- “0″, some people have reported that leaving it at “0″ actually has reduced stress to their CPU.

/r_vsync
VSync (vertical sync) is all about getting rid of screen tearing however it’ll also sync to your screens refresh rate. Set it to “0″ and check to see if your FPS go up.

/r_blur_allowed
This setting will blur shader effects. If you have a strong shader card, this setting is negligible. Otherwise, just go ahead and set to “0″.

/r_distortion
This setting allows distortion shader effects. If you have a strong shader card, this setting is negligible. Otherwise, just go ahead and set to “0″.

/r_dof_enable
This setting is Depth of Field shader effects. If you have a strong shader card, this setting is negligible. Otherwise, just go ahead and set to “0″.

/r_glow_allowed
This setting allows Glow (HDR?) Shader effects. Normally, this would have a negligible impact on performance. HOWEVER, this setting seems to be buggy! Performance improved considerably when I took this option is set to “0″.

/rate
Is the percentage by which the client sends packets to the server. If you set it too low, less than 10,000 or so, you run the risk of sending insufficient data available to the server and lagging out. Set it too high above the 50,000 or so, and you run the risk of flooding your connection to the server. This setting should be adjusted to your connection speed and some fine-tuning to take.

/cl_maxpackets
This setting controls how many packets the client will adhere to the package to secure transmission. If you use this setting to low, less than 20 or so, then you run the risk of prematurely. If this setting is too high, you run the risk of repeatedly sending redundant data and reduce your ping (or worse, gets choked). This setting is very difficult to tune because it depends on many factors outside your own connection. Most people put it on half their max fps because that is the sweet spot for food hit register. The log files show many cases packets so until they fix this mess 100 is your best bet.

Other useful console commands in Black Ops

Access the console
Access the console via the ~ -key or the § -key.

/cl_maxpackets – improving net play at 100 or half of your max fps
/cg_drawfps – see the FPS you’re getting
/com_maxfps set it at 75,125 or 250
/cg_Fov Customize your vision – max = 80 This can also be done using the slider bar in the graphics options it in the options menu
/snaps 30 – works good in COD4 and other titles in the Call of Duty series. Increases what is called “snap shots”.
