How to run a 100 Tick CS:S or TF2 Game Server. ( Orangebox )
#1
Rolleyes 
THIS TUTORIAL HAS DEPRECIATED! IT WILL PROBABLY NOT WORK!
However, the Win_MaxFPS still works for Windows OS's as of 6/18/12



Many users have asked me this question and believe it is possible due to the fact there are many game servers out there that are indeed running 100 Tick Orangebox servers.

So I suppose you want to know how, and its fairly simple to do on both Linux and Windows.

This tutorial assumes that you already have your servers FPS boosted to above 100. In most cases Linux will run fine at the defaults, as for Windows you will need to install an FPS booster service. This service is included as an attachment as well. All 2000 and later Windows distributions will work fine.

First off I want to mention the reasons why the tickrate command was removed from Orangebox games ( CS:S and TF2 )
Quote:Tickrate has a host of side effects on network code, weapon firing speeds, force impulses (like throwing weapons), and physics, and this will help us create a more consistent experience for Counter-Strike.
With this in mind... Lets get modding.

As I stated earlier the process is very simple... Very simple in fact that you will be surprised on how simple it really is.

Step 1:
Download attached Tickrate_Enabler.Zip
Step 2:
Upload the contents into your addons folder. If you do not have an addons folder. Create one. ( orangebox/cstrike/addons )
Step 3:
If you have removed your -tickrate startup command. You must re-add it for this to work!
Code:
-tickrate 100
Step 4:
Properly configure your server.cfg with the following commands:
Code:
sv_maxupdaterate 100
sv_maxcmdrate 100
sv_minupdaterate 100
sv_mincmdrate 100
sv_minrate 20000
sv_maxrate 30000
These commands will FORCE users to use 100 tickrate. You can also set the mincmd and minupdate rates to 66 to allow users to pull 66 ticks as well.

Boy was that simple. Now enjoy your modded 100 tickrate server.
This is confirmed to work on Counter-Strike: Source and Team Fortress 2 It may or may not work on GarrysMod, Left 4 Dead, or Left 4 Dead 2.

Please note that this may or may not improve your gaming performance. Valve change the rates to improve game play consistency.

Edit: Thanks for fixing attachments!
Edit2: This is probably out of date.

100 tickrate on the Orangebox engine will decrease performence so I would not recommend doing so. Still thank you for the informative tutorial Smile

Not needed at all for DODS servers. 100 tickrate is possible just with the -tickrate 100 in the commandline.

Not sure about TF2 but it is needed for the new CSS.

They reenabled tick100 for dods a longer time ago.

And why is there a need since the update for this?
If you read the updatelog you know why -tickrate has been removed.
So if there is a need for something it is that people understand why it has been removed and realise how stupid the constant asking for tick 100 is and stop demanding it.
But most likely that will never happen cause of the way the CSS community is. CSS Players are most times: If someone is better than me it is the tickrate/low rater/server fps/bad server/other is cheating/......
They refuse to think, what have I done wrong so that the other could get me...
A couple of days ago I tried to explain why 500+ Fps are as good as useless. At the end the guy said: Yea I do not feel I difference between 100 and 1000 fps. But I need 1000fps otherwise I can not play. I was like wtf and gave up on that guy...

Anyway I heard from several admins that they turned this Servertool off and switched back to tickrate 66. They did it because the hitreg was more than poor with 100. And people told them they could not hit players on their server even if they would be as large as a door of a barn.

I know what you mean terrorkarotte seems like every css players has fallen for the marketing by server providers that you cant play without 1000fps or more and 100 tick is the only way you can hit people.
