It CAN'T be my internet connection or router because ping works perfectly fine in other games. WTF is happening with this game? --- http://img33.imageshack.us/img33/1844/1129091848.jpg <-- Luigi33 sign pic http://img30.imageshack.us/img30/2862/brandonu.png <-- My pic
O snap something is not working right ... must be update!!!!!
From: iscareu13 | #002 im going to go with your join a server and you server list is still updating.
Stop blaming the game/update.
Uh no. CS:S has ALWAYS worked perfectly. But now the server ping happens to jump really high when I join a server after the update? Coincidence right? BULL****. And you know it. --- http://img33.imageshack.us/img33/1844/1129091848.jpg <-- Luigi33 sign pic http://img30.imageshack.us/img30/2862/brandonu.png <-- My pic
I have ping problems since the update but not that bad.
Also, even if the server list is still updating when you join a server, THAT IS STILL THE PATCH'S FAULT. I always did that before the update, no problems.
My ping problems are like 100 ping, maybe 150, when before the patch I was always in the 40-80 range. The new patch has fudged up the internet somewhat. I notice this game is a lot laggier in terms of internet.
As for the FPS dropping, I dunno how this game would perform on my old comp (seeing how I had 40 FPS low settings), and to be honest, I dont wanna know. New computer for some odd reason seems to have HIGHER fps though. I was getting around 150-200 before the patch (occasional drops to 100), now I am getting like 200-250, occasional drops to 150, I think the Orange Box engine actually helped FPS, allowing me to take advantage of multicore rendering and the like.
I know on my old comp this game would probably suck now, seeing how I have a single core CPU with it.... --- ASUS M4A785T-M | Phenom II X4 965 3.4 GHz | 4 GB DDR3 1600 MHz RAM | Sapphire HD 5850 | 1 TB HDD | Windows 7 64 bit | 650W Antec Earthwatts | Apevia X-Dreamer 3
