some tweaks for y'all lets say ure gfx card can cope but the processor is slow example p2 400 with a gforce3 examining your system the card is faster then the cpu , so the gfx has to wait first thing 1st /whats the fps press ~ and type /cg_drawfps 1 this feature views your actual frame rate per second write down this average... during the map lets say 40 next feature , get the info on the shading bit , try /r_picmip this should return a value : like 0 or 1,2 3 4 etc this value is the 3d rendering so the more pic mip the less gfx detail so like me who cares if i can read the wanted posters caution though picmip is ugly next thing whats the max fps stated in game , this feature is very important command : /com_maxfps this should return a value write it down .. so that u can remember it quick : /r_picmip /cg_drawfps /com_maxfps the more fps the smoother the game now then GFX settings i use /r_picmip 3 draw fps ... si /com_maxfps 125 (punkbuster max) and custom brightness Ahright Network settings /rate (pb max) /snaps (pb max) /maxpackets (pb max) less then pb max u need to test per connection i use rate 25000 snaps 40 maxpackets 100 this is usuall pb standard above , gets u kicked notice : ive got a 8mbit connex and a dual xeon 2.8ghz processors write down all settings so u can reset them ( u might want a backup too of your .cfg files in order to test a setting or apply a setting asap /vid_restart and it will work final thing pb is usually not lagg but here goes try /pb_sleep 500 (date and various cvar check times) 500 five minutes? ahright read the manual on client side pb for cvars

Just a FYI, several cvars will be automatically adjusted in version 1.6, so even when joining a non-PB server you will be assured that the other players arn't running urber-tweeked settings :)
