Counter-strike: Source tweaks [Beej]

Weapon Names Fix:
Download this language file which has been updated for correct/commercial weapon names, eg. "Desert Eagle .50AE" replaces "Nighstalker". Extract the contents to:


C:/Program Files/Valve/Steam/SteamApps/your@login/counter-strike source/cstrike/resource/

I'm still working on new EED decals, more later!

  1. Can we have the proper sounds back? The DE sounds like a .22 now.

  2. Nice one Beejster. Hurry up with the decal :)

  4. Autobuy (works with CSS too)Make a file called autobuy.txt in \Steam\SteamApps\\Counter-Strike\cstrikee.g.m4a1ak47famasgalilp90mp5primammosecammodefuservesthelmvestBind a key to "autobuy". CS will then buy your weps in priority order top down, cash allowing when you press the keyBinding a key to "rebuy" will buy all the stuff you had last round. If you create a rebuy.txt like thisPrimaryWeaponPrimaryAmmoDefuserArmorHEGrenadeFlashbangSmokeGrenadeSecondaryWeaponSecondaryAmmoNightVisionit will prioritise in that order till running out of cash.Off to test...

  5. Bleh. Wep names in the files should be on seperate lines. autobuy & rebuy are bound to F1 & F2 by default.

  6. Config Tweakery
    Just remembered that it was essential in original CS to modify the default net settings, and it turns out that under Source they've actually been cranked down (!) so I dug up my config.cfg from 2001 and pumped some settings into console. Plays better already!

    rate 25000
    cl_cmdrate 60
    cl_updaterate 60

  7. Aren't those a bit high, the cl_ updates? Still, willing to give it a go. It's completely shagged at the moment. I also can't seem to get any decent mouse resolution out of it. That was something Valve broke way back but there was some way to fix it as I recall.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I'm trying them high for now; it's an improvement so far (not saying its perfect mind). I feel "in the action" now but there are still issues (eg. random spray = headshot!).

    ReplyDelete
  9. The random headshot stuff seems worse than it was before? I'd say over half my deaths are headshots.

  10. Various bits of info here csbanana.com/csb.csb/csinfo/guide/index05.banana

  11. I tried Beej's settings, well just the update rates rather than the 25,000 rate. It seemed kind of laggier but I was definately in more control than it is normally. However we seemed to have a session with a pile of very shit people so maybe it was just that :-)

    ReplyDelete
  12. That netcode compensator sounds really sucky. I mean its 2004 ffs. Why are we compensating for modems and ruining the game. FFS!

    ReplyDelete
  13. It's always been Valve's approach. I remember when they suddenly 'overhauled' the HL networking code. Suddenly you had this absurd situation where you had obtained cover and you were still taking damage from some modem peon because you were still on his screen. Lame.

  14. HL2 had better rock hard or we're talking a light night jaunt with pitchforks and torches up to Castle von Newell here...

    ReplyDelete
  15. CS:Source is the multi player component of HL2...

    ReplyDelete
  16. Hmm. A steam news alert told me this morning that Gordon appears to have gone gold. 16 Nov retail date apparently.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Yeah, funny - I've bought HL2 over Steam, but Steam delivers me an advert asking me to... buy HL2. Goons.Anyway, here's a newer and bettered EED decal:leech me and install

  18. And here is my first spray :-) www.wobblytrolley.com/Better.zip

  20. Genuinely humourous visual gag alert. Someone slap him with a kipper, the precocious child....

  21. ok like cs and csz is there going to be someone to make a script that will let u toggle walking and other things.... like nextwish 17.1 script...... well ........email me at louisiana28@gmail.com if u have one already...

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'm thinking not, personally.
    The perils of a CS thread - it's a honeypot for fucktards.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I need a chew walk script. I just can't fucking do it.

    ReplyDelete
  24. What should the rate be for a 56k'er connecting at 46.6kbs???mine default was 3500, i tried 10 instead and it was weirdly easier to kill people except for some guy i shot in the head 3 times and it didnt' register... so any1 know whats the best ratE?

    ReplyDelete
  25. If you join a server, then press F10, it'll bring up a list that shows your min/max and recommended rate

  27. New maps are out. cs_compound & a source version of de_train. I did always like train. Just wish they'd do inferno & vegas & militia.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Is there a list of other Maps they are working on? I'd like to see Winternights in Source...

    hope this helps lata

    ReplyDelete
  30. Haha. A specific rate is better for a manufacturer of computers? My God, now we really have heard it all.

  32. you guys seem to know a bit about configuring CSS, well i wonder if anyone can tell me how to change my client port, on which i connect to public servers with, coz im trying to connect 3pcs to 1 server on the same ip and it just wont let me :( 2 are fine, 3 no way, i need to change my client port, but just dnt know the command !

    ReplyDelete
  33. Uhm, I would think the local ports were random, but then again, I've never checked. I've played CS since early beta, and I've also noticed the big decline in playability with high performance systems and broadband connections. I constantly see blood spurts in places where people were 3 seconds ago... get shot and my body ends up like 5 feet behind where I actually was.

    ReplyDelete
  34. How is it that you manage not to be bored to death by now?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Seriously - what Lurks said. I mean this is like wanking to the same picture for five years. This is really very tedious....

    ReplyDelete
  36. Regards to the rates... if you work it out correctly then your rates should be the following (providing your on a connection 512kb and upwards) rate 21860 cl_updaterate 92 cl_cmdrate 92.Regards to the headshot thing, the hit box for the head is set back, as you enter forwards facing gun fights most of the time u crouch, the causes the head hit box to lurch foward hence the random headshot.Now this is where the arguments will start... interp... set the interp command to 0, this will then auto set to a setting best suited to you connection, some people will say this is just lame config cheats, but trust me all the big cs:s leagues are fine with this.Another bit of advice here, lower mp_decal, yes this may result in not being able to see user spray's and yes it will also result in less/no blood splatters when shot but it can improve fps slightly, especially of you whose cards are struggling with the engine.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Good god.
    I fired up CS:Source the other month (yes, it enthralls me that much) and discovered that whilst it's all shiny, you can still kill players from 18,000 feet away with a DE.
    So, nothing's changed - CS:S sucks piss. LOUDLY.

    ReplyDelete
  38. It's good for lans.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I take it Brit's main game is something like counter strike 1.6? If so then unlucky, or maybe your a frag fest fan? Unlucky some more? I could argue tetris was the worst game in the world, there will always be people who feel the opposite of this, so please dont post random rubbish degrading a decent game!

    ReplyDelete
  40. my fps is poor and i got 3.2ghz pro 1gb ram 256mb radeon 9600XT my fps is about 20 any one know why

    ReplyDelete
  41. Swinder, we'll post what the fuck we want - this is our web site. As for the guy with the fucked up shift-key, I have no idea why or care.
    God, SAVE us from counter-strike peons!

    ReplyDelete
  42. MiNdGaMeS - if you stop taking your medication and blink faster, your FPS will go up.
    I hope that helps.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Actually Swinder, my favourite game isn't CS.* at all. We've played it exhaustively both online and at LANs as a clan, and it was a good laugh. However, without exception, CS.* has always suffered from laughable headshot-a-rama, whereby folk are being offed over huge distances with one shot kills when nothing like that should ever happen: certainly not with a pistol.
    You could argue all you like, frankly I don't care. Right now my favourite game is Call of Duty, United Offensive; if only because it's fast, furious and needs a good grasp of tactics to win in. I, like the rest of EED, look forward very much to the release of Battlefield 2, the screenies and movies of which already look awesome.
    Either way, if you think CS.* is in anyway a perfect game or a well balanced game (including headshot rubbish) then you're a number of rounds short of a full clip.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'd like to see you take a headshot from a desert eagle .50 calibur and not die. Moron.

  45. Locked this blog to avoid further 'insightful' comments by more teenage CS retards.
