// -softparticlesdefaultoff : disable depth blending for particles and sprites, more FPS
// -disable_d3d9_hacks : disables some Source engine workarounds for dx9. Creates an odd fog effect. Small FPS boost.
// -nops2b : Use pixel shaders 2.0 instead of 2.0b, results in thicker fog and messes up world lighting and shadows.
//
// NETWORK
// -reuse : allow network sockets to be reused when busy (sets SO_REUSEADDR), better network performance
