    Yep, I was playing it today... the game itself is really nice, but steam is a pain in the @$$ .

    The new weapons are nice, the Galil is a much better gun then the AK in my opinion (which is kinda weird because in real life the Galil is an AK that was abused by the IDF).
    The CT shield turned out to be a damn useful thing as well, especially if your good with a pistol.

    Very nice overall , cant wait for the official patch so i can kill steam.

    No problem, anything i can do to help :)

    I have a question, actually couple of questions.
    Do you get Lag spikes as well? all the servers i have been playing on have terrible lag spikes (and not only for me) , its kinda hard to play when your ping skyrockets to 2000 all of the sudden...
    the second one is what servers do you guys usually play? it will be nice if we play together.

    Sazar , When you first Install steam, un-subscribe "all steam titles" and subscribe to only CS or other games you will actually be playing, after that get into CS's Settings (right click it). the status thingie on it will be "updating" wait until it is done updating and says "ready to play" , only then you can play (You'll see the steam icon in the sys tray stop spinning as an indication) , steam made a big mistake with this feature, it took me 3 re-installs to figure that out (but maybe its just dumb me) , anyway it will download about 170 megs, then you can play.

    Cheers ;)

    Steam works fine here... (slow and faithful connection ;))
    No problems with Steam so far tho it obviously requires tweaking as do some of the newer features of 1.6 itself. Not checked out TFC 1.6 yet as to be honest I don't play it :p

    Riot shield is fun, but I need to really develop my skills ;)
    Ping stays around 200, which is the same as the standard version.

    I like what they did to Aztec... makes it cooler.
    The Galil is fine, accurate (and not spelled as Galeeel , its named after the erea of Israel I live in... sigh).
