Field of view (FOV)[edit]

Fix Field of view

Information When running at widescreen-resolutions adjusting the fov is probably necessary.

First Method:

  1. While in game, push ~ to open the developer console.
  2. Type default_fov 106.270273206 and press Enter.

Second Method:

  1. Alternatively you can also open config.cfg located in Sierra\Half-Life\Valve\.
  2. Add the following to the bottom of it.

For 16:10: default_fov 100.39487232

For 16:9: default_fov 106.270273206

If the new fov doesn't stick try creating an autoexec.cfg-file in the same folder and adding the line to it.

Borderless fullscreen windowed[edit]

Fix -window -noborder

  1. Find Team Fortress Classic in your Steam Library
  2. Right-click the game name
  3. Select Properties
  4. Select Set Launch Options...
  5. Input -window -noborder
  6. Press OK
  7. Launch the game

High frame rate[edit]

Fix Setting FPS higher than 100

Information Increasing the FPS is necessary to make the game seem less choppy without vsync enabled.

First Method:

  1. While in game, push ~ to open the developer console.
  2. Type developer 1 and press Enter. This enables developer mode, going past the video standards of when TFC was first released.
  3. Type fps_override 1 and press Enter. This enables entering in FPS levels higher than 100.
  4. Finally type fps_max 200 and press Enter. Setting to 200 is recommended, higher values will feel floaty.

Second Method:

  1. Alternatively you can also open userconfig.cfg located in the game folder (see above).
  2. Add the following to the bottom of it.
developer 1
fps_override 1
fps_max 200
