Film Grain issue
Hello I recently installed a fps cfg and it did some things like turning the film grain up to max, I have now removed the fps cfg and even though I have put the film grain on lowest it is still on max even though I removed the cfg.

How can I fix this?

Here is a screenshot, You might not be able to tell by the screenshot, But turning up the film grain does nothing as does turning it down.

Disable the steam cloud.
It saves all your game settings.
Then put a command in your launch options, I'm not sure what is is, like -autoconfig I think.
Then you should be able to just launch the game, exit the game, relaunch it and re-enable steam cloud and everything should be just fine.
Tell me if it works.

Film grain has an in-game setting under video settings, just move the slider down to the default position or lower. Alternative, type this into your console: mat_grain_scale_override "0"

Typing that in the console did not work.

last chance: deinstallation and reinstallation

There has to be some other way, It will take forever to re-download with my internet connection.
You could try to delete your config.cfg and your autoexec.cfg then verify your game cache and then re enter the game.
Hell, you could delete your entire .cfg folder, I had to do that once.

Since it sounds like you've tried everything but this, why don't you try this:

1. Re-install that fps cfg.
2. Alter the film grain cvars yourself
3. Delete everything in that cfg not related to the film grain.
4. Prosper!

Could work; works for server stuff sometimes.

That is of course a good thing to try out :)
What's occurred to me: Did you disable steam-cloud?

I deleted my whole cfg folder but I had to re-validate my cache but it worked! The only problem is I need to re-do my keybinds, But other than that it works now! Thank you very much to all of you for your help, I appreciate it.
