    I'm assuming you're on broadband. Set as follows:

    rate 20000
    cl_updaterate (avg fps / 2)
    cl_cmdrate (avg fps)

    So, I typically run at 100fps, so mine are set as follows:

    rate 20000
    cl_updaterate 50
    cl_cmdrate 100

      Wyz, if my average FPS is 72 and I have a 291 k according to toast.net,
      rate 20000
      cl_updaterate 36
      cl_cmdrate 72
      Would be good to enter into NS console? Currently everything is default.
      :)

          That seems good, yes.

              Given my understanding, those settings would be great.

                Another suggestion is to lock your FPS at a lower number than the average. For example my home computer is locked at 72 FPS (fps_max 72), and I base my update/cmdrate off of that as wyz suggested. The idea is to use a number your computer can easily stay at all of the time, even in heavy combat. Also remember that the server itself can set a cmd/update/rate lock that is lower than your own client settings. If you run into issues, this is usually the cause. Try lowering all of your rates to compensate until you stop getting choke (net_graph 3).

                    Aye, tis nice to use the internet and speak to people that live in reality. It won't be a brief visit, however :P We bought a commercial internet satellite dish, so I have access on my own computer now, so I'll be around, albeit in forum format until April or so. I'll be around sometime in January as well, my leave is then. I'll put my time to good use by trolling this forum and answering questions as I can.

                      Another point to remember--higher is better, yes, but beyond a certain point the extra benefit you get is so small as too be almost unnoticeable.

                      If I recall, the default cmdrate and updaterate are only 20, which is really too low. But as soon as you reach 30-40, you're in pretty good shape. Sure, you could set your command rate up to 100, but given human reaction times of around 1/15 of a second, and lag at around 1/30 of a second even for the best connections, how often is that 1/100 of a second going to matter?

                      Then again, I could be totally wrong. =P

                        I say this based on consistent observation, not any intimate knowledge of HL (actually, that goes for most advice I give on how to configure a client):

                        Many (not all) crackly voicecomm problems are solved by raising cl_cmdrate to 100. It allows your client to send more data when you speak, thus remedying the crackling, which is data loss.

                          Is my voicecom crackly? I have my rates set to 40.

                          Also, don't these things interact with some other more obscure rates like ex_interp?

                            I'm sure it's more complicated than I make it out to be. I can't speak to your voicecomm quality.

                              ex_interp does indeed interact with updaterate. If set to 1, I believe it automatically corrects itself according to updaterate, or it can be set manually. There are a couple of other more obscure settings as well (cl_resend, etc) that aren't as critical to smooth operation on most computers.
