I played CS 1.6 in school, during the maths class.
Today I had the best maths class. Ever.
(Important: Nothing was forced here. It was part of an agreement between me and the class teacher, to which the director agreed, too.)
So, let's see the context first:
My class will go on a 3-day school trip to Montenegro. I was refusing to go. So, that went on for a few weeks. And then, I decided to carry out a condition: if _____ plays CS 1.6 with me, I will go on the trip. (I put _____ because I don't want to use her real name. Basically, it's the girl I used to love in 6th grade)
Then, that changed a bit. Since she refused to do that, someone else had to. :/
But then we had another agreement. The best student in the class (she has all A's) wanted to do it. (she's my cousin, by the way)
And, then, it happened.
14th March, 2017. We brought our laptops into the school, and the Wi-Fi passwords were typed in by the school secretary, on our laptops. (I found out the password later on when I was digging through the properties)
I saw my school's director there. He asked me a question on English: "What do you think about this game, 'counter'?" (we say "kanter" in BiH, it's a jargon for Counter-Strike)
Yeah well, I will not say what I said, so...
Now, let's see what actually happened!
At first, the situation was somewhat unstable. One of my friends tried to go to a website to install CS 1.6 on the girl's laptop, but I already had a copy on my USB stick. So, that part went fine.
I disabled DEP (Data Execution Prevention) on her laptop for hl.exe because it was causing hl.exe not to work, and I also did some minor tweaks because her laptop didn't support OpenGL nor DirectX. xD
It ran in Software mode. Then we made some mouse sensitivity adjustments and we looked like we're ready.
Then, things got messy. 15 minutes had already passed and we have just reached the playing phase.
Basically, she tried to connect to my LAN party, and I launched the school map. It took forever to load on her laptop!
I mean, the map's huge, of course it didn't load:
"Smajo, don't hit us! Zla?a (his father) will hear about it!"
Yeah, there are many mocks like this, lol.
While it was loading for her, I was demonstrating to my classmates that I actually made their dreams come true.
Lol, one of my friends went on the second floor and shot all the hostages, i.e. the teachers. (nobody from the class would do that in real life, though! Never!)
In fact, I believe that if it were to load, it would've lagged more on her laptop. Lol. Ah well, it could've been because of the drivers, but still... Software mode is Software mode!
Meanwhile, I noticed that Firewall asked permission for hl.exe to connect to the Internet. I completed that too.
Then, after that, I switched the game into windowed mode so I don't have to press the Windows key or Alt+Tab every time I want to switch windows.
And then, another 15 minutes had passed. So we had 15 minutes remaining. By then, it was pretty much 8:00 in the morning.
But then we started playing! >:D
At first, it was me and the friend who tried to install the game via the Internet.
Man, I can't believe I beat him even though he's clearly better than me. Well, I didn't use anything other than the USP pistol.
I had 52 HP and he had 40! Phew, we met on a lot of places, but I kept going the other way around to surprise him, and we eventually met on the end of a tunnel, and: 1 kill for Admer456!
(seriously, he didn't hesitate, he wouldn't have let me won)
Well, I'm usually bad at CS, because I don't "play" it that much, but he got rekt, so...
And then, it was her turn. Lol, she had to learn the controls, and it was very funny:
^ Step 1. Always position your hands in the gamer way. ^
Oh look who's touching my left arm. The same guy from my army trip blog.
It's Erwin123, as always! xD
Anyway, she had a Galil. (we call it "Halil" in here because Halil is a name of one of my neighbours xD)
What would you expect? She kept firing and firing, but each and every bullet missed me, lol. Or I missed the bullets, instead of them missing me, who knows...
She switched to a knife, started chasing me, and I played chicken. But when we reached the T spawn, I took my knife too, crouch-jumped her and started attacking.
Another kill for Admer456!
She was a bit dizzy after, I will admit that. But hey, it's normal to get dizzy after playing a fast-paced FPS for the first time in your life!
When Jody hears about this, she will laugh so much. I love it when I make her laugh or something like that. :3
I wonder where is she now, lol.
You can view the album here.
Anyway, even our class teacher (she's our maths teacher too, so this was on the maths class) went up close to see what's going on here. xD
She told my mum about this. Yeah well, I told my parents beforehand, so it doesn't matter.
The school map itself will be released on GameBanana (hopefully), and it's basically an improvement of my old school map.
The hype was real in the last week. I told everyone that they will see the school map, but they didn't believe me, until I showed them the screenshots.
I also told them that there's a new version coming for Sven Co-op first, and it will then be ported to CS 1.6.
And then, came this day. It was one of the best days in my life. I mean, how cool would it be if we had a Counter-Strike class? :D
In a nutshell, a miracle happened today. Let's hope that there will be more moments like this.
