We need to know your system specs, what drivers you are running, and all that jazz before we can even touch that problem :)

if your 3d accelerator has Nvidia Chipset, u can try to use the detonator drivers..they usually speed up things...at least with me..

try another game and see what its fps is. im reading somany damn posts of issues with cs, and xp. my advice. trash cs, and play, rtcw, or mohaa. both of these games put cs to shame in my opinion. cs obviously crys at xp.;)
u can try some diff nvidia drivers too.

didnt meant make it sound like it sux,lolol cs is awesome, no denying that. i played it so much its crazy. and for an old engine
its damn good. im burned on it. but i do think rtcw is great multiplayer, the gameplay is as tight as cs in my opinion. and the graphics rock. let me tell ya this though when and if they update the cs engine with better graphics, ill be all over it as thats my main reason for not playing it anymore, im too spoiled with these new graphics. i mean can you imagine cs as it is now, gameplay wise, but with graphics and detail like those in rtcw, and mohaa?
OHH MY GOD...;)

I think thats why CS2 is going to be so highly anticipated.

I am looking foward to Condition Zero alot, but I can still see they are just trying to squeeze a few more dollars out of a dying engine, tho the features of the game look awesome and innovative, the features of the engine are just being stretched - with no real features being added.

Its about time Valve opened up the TF2 engine to a little critisism as thats how all the best products are created... Warcraft 3 for example ....

Weird tho as they are doing completely the opposite with CS1.4 by creating an on going beta where any changes are instantly downloaded to the user !!

yea, i cant wait till unreal tournament 2 is out, i just hope they dont jack the engine trying to make sure the wepons arent spammers, like the old flak cannon. the screens look tasty,lol

valve certainly has alot to live up to , if they wanna best the old cs engine, graphics alone wont doit, thell have to maintain the
sweet gameplay, or itll bomb, (perfect example is quake 3)
the gameplay in 3 sux compared to quake 2. but valve seems to be good at what they do.

i cant wait to see what these guys up the road from me here
do with the new doom game. lol they even have those big double doors, from the old doom games, on the front of there corprate
offices,lol its great...it says id corperation in huge solid gold letters...lol

:cool:

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
