Making it so the mat_phong 0 happens every time you start up
Ive heard about mat_phong 0 being a cool high performance thing and i also heard you could have it every time you startd it up. How does one make it so Mat_phong 0 is always on when you start the game?

Put it in a notepad document, save it as autoexec.cfg, and save it in SteamApps/common/Team Fortress 2/tf/cfg.

Basically. A lot of people think it's pretty ugly so there are mods to reduce or remove it, along with the mat_phong cvar that recently got added.

Well what does mat_phong cvar do?

Inside it. The title of the file is autoexec.cfg.
