EASY GUIDE, Improve aim, system latency, and input lag "Esports"

Branched to a new discussion

   I've seen many guides for "gaiming/ lower latency/ esports" but many have harmful details with lacking supporting evidence. I made a guide to improve aim, system latency, and input lag

BUT, most importantly I wanted a simple guide... This isn't an argumentative guide, but these are basic concepts, proof/data is in links at the bottom.

I just edited a guide I made for personal use. Here is something like I would do,/ currently use 

 

-Turn windows 10 game mode on (search for it in start menu, it's in settings)

 

-Turn off mouse acceleration in windows 10 by going into "mouse setting" and click "additional mouse options" then click "pointer options" and uncheck "enhance pointer percision"

-mouse acceleration always off with this old school fix-   (MarkC mouse fix below)
--Markc mouse fix (download) http://donewmouseaccel.blogspot.com/2010/03/markc-windows-7-mouse-acceleration-fix.html

 

-Graphics settings on high for .exe's, like games (search for graphics settings in search menu and add them to it)

 

-Ryzen high performance (In Chipset drivers can be found on motherboards website) is a power option/power plan (this will change if you use follow Process Lasso steps)

 

-Diable fullscreen optimizations (right click on exe's on desktop and (go into properties, compatability) Fixes windows 10 fullscreen issues/ input delay

 

-Disable xbox game bar (search "game bar settings" in start menu) (everyone agrees this is trash)

 

-Install Process Lasso and enable performance mode (in main setting) and set games to high priority (literally right click on an exe. in Lasso) (download) https://bitsum.com

 

Don't use AMD anti-lag or NVIDIA low latency unless you are GPU bound or use it if your GPU is going above 95% utilization is a game. (source) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7CKnJ5ujL_Q&t=636s

 

-NEXT PART WILL GIVE YOUR MOUSE/KEYBOARD/DISPLAY MORE CONSISTENCY, EVERYTHING WILL BE SYNCED UP BETTER/FASTER -according to FR33THY

 

-INTELLIGENT STANDBY LIST CLEANER (for the next part)

--Set timer resolution to 0.5ms in it (leave rest default)

 

-fr33thys timer videos (FOLLOW but the steps he did are below and corrected by him)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EG4g9XlKw5w&t=434s

 

(what he did)
-DISABLE SYNTHETIC TIMERS
cmd - admin
bcdedit /set useplatformtick yes
restart

 

-Disable HPET in the OS (updated from Fr33thy)
cmd - admin
bcdedit /deletevalue useplatformclock
(if it says something like value not found your good)

OTHER USE FULL NOTES
-New drivers have a E-sports mode that enables AMD antilag, sharpening, and changes tessellation. Antilag and sharpening are usually not good.
-Sharpening usually makes games look terrible (overwatch)
-Cap your frames! FPS or framerate is directly related to input lag, the more fps, the less input lag. more below (ideally 144hz display)
--If your fps is all over the place, your input lag or frametime varies giving you inconsistent input lag which will hurt your muscle memory!
