Patch Notes


  • safezonex’s min value can now go as low as 0.28 with triple monitor setups and will allow a min value of 0.475 with double monitor setups.
  • Added convar sv_server_graphic which allows the server to specify a 360×60 px image file (must be 16k or smaller) in /csgo/ that will display in the spectator view. Supports PNG transparency.
  • when the scoreboard is up, the radar will now switch to the square “overview” mode (disable with cl_radar_square_with_scoreboard, or in the Game Settings menu)


  • Fixed a crash on round end/restart or player spawn if a player was parented to another entity that was cleaned up.
  • Increased session communication buffer size to allow for up to 64-player sessions.
  • Added experimental cpu_frequency_monitoring convar to detect thermal throttling. If you have CS:GO performance problems on Windows, add “+cpu_frequency_monitoring 2″ to the CS:GO command line to see if CPU thermal throttling is an issue. If the displayed CPU frequency percentage drops below about 80-85% then you may have a problem with your CPU slowing down due to overheating. If it drops below 50-55% then you may have a serious problem. CPU overheating can be caused by overclocking, insufficient cooling, insufficient airflow, failing or dirty fans, or other causes. The CPU frequency results are displayed with cl_showfps or net_graph. For more detail see
