Intro to Autoexec.cfg

An autoexec.
cfg is quite literally an automatically executed config.
A text file generated (or saved) by the user, that tells the game which specific settings the user would like to use while they play.
Autoexec.
cfg's (often referred to as configs, .
cfg, fps configs, scripts, etc.
) live in your \cfg\ directory for CSGO on your local machine.
It mary vary a bit per user, but generally speaking you'll want to place your .
cfg into: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Counter-Strike Global Offensive\csgo\cfg The autoexec file itself is just a configuration that CS:GO will pull settings from that are either too cumbersome to mess with via in-game menus, or users would like to set in numerical values rather than attempt to use the menu-based options.
Things such as sensitivity for your mouse, for example, are easier to change manually because you may fine tune them more with a numerical value (ie.
sensitivity .
35) than with a 1-6 slider in-game.
Other values, such as fps_max, aren't always available via the in-game menus.
Setting these things manually with your config is a way to get the fine tuned game experience you want.
To use an autoexec.
cfg all a user needs to do is have the .
cfg file placed into the directory I've listed above.
There are also folks who say you need to use startup commands with CS:GO to run the autoexec.
cfg so, if you'd like to go down that road, simply enter the following commands into your launch options for CS (I've also included the common performance commands as well).
Steps to add launch options to CS:GO: Browse to your Steam Library Right click on Counter Strike: Global Offensive Click: Properties Click: Set Launch Options Paste the following: +exec autoexec.
cfg For the common CS:GO launch options (disable video, open console, 128tic local server, etc.
) use: -console -novid -high -threads 4 +exec autoexec.
cfg -tickrate 128 ++tip: if you're using an alternate (or 'smurf') account on the same PC, your autoexec will be used as long as your CS:GO install lives within the \common\ directory as shown above in the image Cinque Terre

What does it do?

An autoexec, as we discussed, automatically executes a config file that can alter your game experience.
For some players this means simply showing the net_graph that displays client/server connections as well as frames per second.
How many times in-game has someone asked you "how do you show your FPS?".
The fast answer is net_graph, but the longer answer is to have your .
cfg file handle it.
Moving on, take a look at a few of the available options for changing your individual in-game experience.
HUD Options (color, icons, inventory) cl_hud_healthammo_style "0" // show HP and ammo without bars and bullet icons hud_showtargetid "0" // Shows enemy name on screen cl_hud_playercount_pos "0" // Position for the playercount on screen cl_hud_radar_scale "1" // Changes the size/scale of the radar cl_hud_playercount_showcount "1" // forces show all players in the player count cl_hud_color "8" // Changes UI Color for HUD HP, Ammo, Money etc cl_hud_background_alpha "0.
5" // Adjust HUD background alpha for colored elements cl_hud_bomb_under_radar "1" // shows bomb icon under radar instead of inventory Screenshot showing the HUD variables in effect.
Note the player count at the top center, the color of the HUD items, and the placement of the bomb icon.

Where can I get an Autoexec.cfg

There are literally hundreds of different options out there to choose from.
There are configs out there designed to assist with your rates and network performance, configs for FPS, configs out there with autobuy features in them to bind certain functions to certain keys, etc.
It's best to decide what you need first, then look for a config that comes close to meeting your needs.
If you cannot find one out there, feel free to take mine and edit it[mainepc.
net] as you wish.
It's not unlike any other generic config you'll find out there, seeing as how it's been made up of certain settings and variables I've grabbed over the years.
Making your own config, or editing one to suit your needs, is the best way to get what you need.
For those of you who'd rather not simply download it, I'll paste the text here--and you are free to use what you'd like.
