35. What are the best TCP Optimizer settings for gaming ?

While the SG TCP Optimizer is designed to give you the best possible throughput online, it can also help improve your gaming experience. There are, however a few subtle differences when optimizing for throughput/file transfer vs. gaming/reduced latency.

To tweak your system for the best possible gaming performance, please follow these steps:

1. Apply the Optimal Settings
In the TCP Optimizer, set your advertised internet speed, choose the "optimal" settings, and "Apply" them (you can postpone the reboot for now).

2. Set Network Throttling Index
In the "Advanced" tab of the Optimizer, set the "Gaming Tweak - Network Throttling Index":
NetworkThrottlingIndex: disabled:ffffffff
SystemResponsiveness: gaming: 0

3. Disable Naggling
In the "Advanced" tab, set the "Gaming Tweak - Disable Nagle's Algorithm":
TcpAckFrequency: 1
TcpNoDelay: 1
TcpDelAckTicks: 0

4. Apply the Optimizer settings and reboot when prompted.

5. More Tweaks
After applying the settings and rebooting, also see the Gaming Tweaks article for additional settings to your PC and NAT router not covered by the program.

Notes:
Some of the Optimizer tweaks affect both TCP and UDP.
