    I jsut want to know how many fps u people are getting in that game. For those people who don't know how to see the fps, you go to the console and type cl_showfps 1. Please reply to this!!!<br>

    What resolution are you after? I normally play at 800 x 600<br>
    <br>
    Could clock up to 99, but it dips between 40-99.<br>
    <br>
    This was on a Duron 700, Geforce DDR/2mx (tried both)

    Soccerboy , there is a limit on the framrate by default (71-72) so if you get into your Half-Life config file and change the value of the variable (forgot it's name , i think something to do with FPS, could someone please post it) to something higher you should be able to get a higher amount of FPS.<br>
    <br>
    Cheers, <br>

    I Found it. Go into the valve directory, open config.cfg and change the "fps_max" variable to something higher (like 500). You can also change it using the ingame console.<br>
    <br>
    Cheers,<br>

    max fps = 99<br>
    regardless<br>
    <br>
    still... 71 you should be happy, wasn't it something like anything above 30 is not noticeable to the naked eye?

    Yeah , we can up to about 33 FPS. As long as you are over that amount all the time you're doing fine <IMG SRC="smileys/smile.gif"> <br><br><i>This message was edited by Robsal on 18 May 2001 04:31 PM</i>

    ok cool. Well actually, when a person is in danger, or is REALLY concentrating(ex. Babe Ruth before hitting the ball..) the eye's..something opens up really wide and u actually see around 250 fps. This makes sense right? The person can make split second decidions in that few seconds when the eye is opened up a lot. I heard some baseball players practice this...hehe just some info <IMG SRC="smileys/sticktongue.gif"><br>

    <IMG SRC="smileys/evil.gif"> Damn... does anyone know how to raise fps besides buying a new graphics card? i only get 8-11 fps while playing, in melee it even goes down to 4-6. i already downloaded cheap models but that didnĀ“t help too much.<br>

    Hey Soccerboy007, it pays to get high fps for it <i>does</i> help in gaming performance, especially in tight, short-lived climax, where a few miliseconds really matters <IMG SRC="smileys/wink.gif"> <br>
    However you should note that to maximise your fps to your fullest potential, your monitor's refresh rate has to be on par or even higher than your fps, so they're not wasted since your monitor is might not able to churn out every last frame you can get from your graphics card.<br>
    71 is a really good number for your CS fps, but if put in more effort into tweaking CS itself, expect some 10+ fps increase and enjoy the benefits it'll bring to you <IMG SRC="smileys/wink.gif">
