Default 16 steps to reduce the lag on the server!

16 steps to reduce the lag on counter strike server!

- Step 1 - The firs step is that the server has "Realtime" priority.
Start the server, press CTRl + Alt + Del, click Processes, find hlds.exe in the list, and right click on it, Set Priority - Realtime.

- Step 2 - The second step is:
- Go o the hlds.exe folder (from where you have opened the server), make a shortcut to the hlds.exe, then you will find in the same folder another file "Shortcut to hlds". Right click on this one, press Proprieties, and in the first raw you have Target, and there yo have something like HDD:\location\hlds.exe .
Now add -console -game cstrike -pingboost 3 +sys_ticrate 1000 +heapsize 250000 +maxplayers 20 +map de_nuke.

- Step 3 - the third step is to install HL Booster

- Step 4 - Step 4 is for more quick change of the map:
- Enter the cstrike folder, where you have the installed the server , find the custom.hpk file and remove it for good.

- Step 5 - Can be used as a script for rates:
alias "dslow" "sv_minrate 2500;sv_maxrate 2500;sv_minupdaterate 5;sv_maxupdaterate 5;echo dead slow"
alias "vslow" "sv_minrate 3500;sv_maxrate 3500;sv_minupdaterate 13;sv_maxupdaterate 13;echo very slow"
alias "slow" "sv_minrate 3500;sv_maxrate 5000;sv_minupdaterate 14;sv_maxupdaterate 14;echo slow"
alias "norm" "sv_minrate 3500;sv_maxrate 7500;sv_minupdaterate 15;sv_maxupdaterate 15;echo normal"
alias "fast" "sv_minrate 3500;sv_maxrate 9999;sv_minupdaterate 20;sv_maxupdaterate 20;echo fast"
alias "vfast" "sv_minrate 3500;sv_maxrate 20000;sv_minupdaterate 20;sv_maxupdaterate 60;echo LAN fast"
alias "rates" "sv_minrate;sv_maxrate;sv_minupdaterate;sv_maxupda terate"

Add the file server.cfg to the script, in the cstrike folder where you have installed the server.
Usage: After you have started the server, write in the console what setting you want, considering the type of internet connexion you have, and also considering the type of computer that you keep the server on. For exemple, if you have a server on lan, write in the console vfast, or if you have a server where you have players in the same network you can use fast or norm. You can acces this script by "rcon" considering the variation of the lag on the server. you should not have any setting about the rate in server.cfg, listenserver.cfg, game.cfg, settings.cfg, amx.cfg etc.

- Step 6 - It refers to some setings that you should add on the server.
- You have the following settings:
log off
sv_logbans 0
sv_logecho 0
sv_logfile 0
sv_log_onefile 0
mp_logmessages 0
mp_logdetail 0
sv_unlag 1
sv_maxunlag .1
fps_max 600

You shoul add these settings in server.cfg .

- Step 7 - It refers to some settings that you should use considering the type of internet connection you have.

You should add these settings in server.cfg, but not all of them. Add only the ones you think you need!!!

- Step 8.
In step 8 you will learn some Windows settings:
- Right click on My Computer, press Properties, click up on the Advanced, and in Performance, click Settings and do like in the image below:

- Step 9 - About the optimization of some processes, and how to disable the the ones that are not useful.
- Press the Start button, click Run... and write regedit, then press [+] from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, than press [+] from SYSTEM, then press [+] from CurrentControlSet, then [+] from Control, than press [+] from Session Manager and then press on Memory Management. In the right you will have a list with some registers.
Double click DisablePagingExecutive and at Value data change the 0 with 1.
- In order to stop the processes that aren't useful for us:
Press Start, click Run and write msconfig. A window will appear, click on Services and click the ones you do not need. Also, press Startup and click on those you think you do not need.

- Step 10 -
- Click on Start, press Run... and then write gpedit.msc. Under Computer Configuration press the [+] from Network, and then press QoS Packet Scheduler and you will have a lst in the right, where you can make some settings. Double click on Limit Reservable Bandwidth, then mark Enabled and change from 20% to 0% at the Bandwidth limit. Then click Apply and OK.

- Step 11-
- Right click on the Desktop - Properties - Apperance - Effects. In this window, only the raw Hide underlined letters... should be marked.

-Step 12 -
- Click Start - Run and write Sigverif.exe. Then press Enter and then Start on the next window.

- Stept 13 -
- Go to Control Panel and then Administrative Tools - Services. Right click - stop on the following:
Application Management
Error Reporting
Distributed Link Tracking Client
Help and Support
Remote Registry Service
Windows Time
WMI Performance Adapter

- Step 14 -
- Go to Start - Run and write regedit. Then go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM -> CurrentControlSet -> Control -> Session Manager -> Memory Management -> PrefetchParameters. Then enter the EnabePrefetcher and set the value 3.

-Step 15 -
- Enter Start - Run and write regedit. Then go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SYSTEM -> CurrentControlSet -> Control -> PriorityControl. In the right press New - DWORD Value. Write IRQ8Priority. Then press Modify and put the value 1.

- Step 16 -
- Use the "TCP Optimizer" software in order to optimize the internet. It is a good software that I tested.

CAUTION! It is not mandatory to follow all the steps, follow only the ones you think you need.
I do not assume any risk in case you damage your pc or your server, even though I know that nothing can happen. But you can modify by mistake other things an you can blame me.

This is not my personal writting, so credits goes to the orginal writter.
