sv_client_interp (does it work?)
does the cvar sv_client_interp work with the new OB engine, it's hard to tell without zblock because you can't see other peoples interps but does anyone know/can confirm this works? Noticing a lot of people abusing the interp cvar and giving themself like 500 lerp
Unfortunately no you cannot control client's lerp settings.

The closest that you can get is sv_client_max_interp_ratio & sv_client_min_interp_ratio.

It is ridiculous that you are not able to force these settings.

thanks a lot anyways Smile
why would you want to force it? it depends on the connection and should not be equal for all people... (Linux Kernel HOWTO!)

Control of lerp settings would be the same as control of other rate settings. Unfortunately people run with high settings to make themselves harder to hit & can appear jerky on the screen for others at times. Universal settings for all should be the key. A max & min shoukld be able to be set. Max of 100 (default) & min of 0 should be the norm. People are running around with 200-500 lerp for an advantage.
then a maximum setting would be the right choice...

but: I don't believe that it's an advantage to have such a high setting. try it out and ask your mates what changes for them (and be honest with yourself). I think a high lerp value is a disadvantage. I could not play with a lerp value of 500... it's like having a high ping.

btw: the same goes for "low" rates. ages ago there was an exploit that utilizes very low rates. valve reacted and introduced a hard-coded minimum of 30. that is enough to completely prevent that exploit. as both the client and the server uses interpolation someone with a rate of 30 is as easily hit as someone with a rate of 66 (which is the new limit in css). unless you set your cl_interp value too low maybe...

I have tested it but agree with your call for a max setting. The default 100 should be the max imo.

I know of players that use the higher lerp to their advantage. Myself, I don't like to use it & actually play with 0 lerp Smile
it's frustrating cus i've seen a lot of people abuse it
Use Kigens Anticheat:

kac_addcvar cl_cmdrate greater kick 30
kac_addcvar cl_interp less kick 0.1

And say bye bye to abusers.

Hmm, hadn't thought of that. I already use KAC so might give it a try.
