Resolution in cs2

So I want to play cs2 in 4:3 1280x1024 + (its so blurry in game) I want to play on 165hz or 144hz (my monitor supports 165) but when I select that in game it is stuck on 60hz and 75hz, and I have no clue how to fix that, if someone could help me fix that btw i’m on nvidia gtx 1660 and amd ryzen 5 3600, is there a way to do this ?

3 things.

  1. If you are using gamescope to change resolution, it isn’t possible to change the refresh rate in game. You might be able to bypass it by using the launch command:
+freq 165
  1. Are you using x11 or Wayland?

  2. Are you on a dual monitor setup?

CS2 on different resolutions always gave me problems with the refresh rate especially with gamescope. Your best bet would to be setting your monitors resolution to 1280x1024 through xrandr or whatever GUI tool to swap it, then run the game at fullscreen.

I’m on x11 singel monitor and I used xrandr to try to to that but it didn’t work, I might have not do it correctly

I would recommend taking a look at the archwiki for xrandr: https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/xrandr
