https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Phong That is basically what it is^^^^ A few days ago I saw a Star_ Video and he explained that he typed mat_phong 0 in the developer console and it in my opinion, it looks like the characters look a little bit like they do in beta or when it was originalOut. kind of like this. or... The color when Mat_phong 0 is activated makes the characters have darker colors and it reminds me of those screenshots posted above. It is supposed to give you an FPS boost.. There is mat_phong 1, not really sure what it does, but it makes the characters have more 'shine' Now let me get on topic. If I enable Mat_Phong 0, is there anyway to disable it in case I get tired of it?
