    All the servers are updating too.
    Something is very wrong with my update... When I kill/get killed by someone the person sits down on the knees, goes down on their stomach and place their hands on their head. WTH IS UP WITH THAT?!

    an update always slows down servers for a while, especially a big one like this. i recommend you stop being a baby and wait like 15 minutes for them to come back

    It's going to be laggy. Wait a day. I tried playing, but it was shitty. I'm just going to wait until everything catches up with the update.

    Yea, age old violence commands (Just set all to zero I believe). I run it myself on occasion as I find it kinda funny heh.

    It's mp_ragdolls or something

    Is this the update in beta a month back? Cause I thought all they gained from that was that the update added nothing and took the complete wrong stance by attacking the two largest remaining loyal groups of CSS (Minigames and competitive)

    I think Valve is starting to care more about Mac "Gamers" than PC ones. All this shit wouldn't of happened if Valve had just screwed off on the whole Applecompatibility bullcrap, they're upsetting more poeple then they are helping.

    Whatever, I downloaded CS:S two days ago at 2.3mb/s, now with all the server traffic it's going at 50-120kb/s. I might just get a torrent of the orginal CS:S release and use that to play singleplayer.

    Good Fight Custom maps made for minigames, surf & deathrun.

    Just played on a 40 slot minigames server, some maps are broken, not all functioning the way they should. Not to mention the "fake lag" feeling.

    Terrible, are they trying to kill off the mods? Pretty sure ALOT of players are only interested in the mods.

    I'd have to argree with you a little on that, but you guys should think of some of the pluses with the new update. The whole EP 2 engine that includes motion blur, better graphics and multicore rendering. I agree, the revenge system is stupid and some other things, but there are lots of new additions that I really like.

    I'm so tired of seeing people bitch about achievements, menus, and an upgraded graphics engine. It's not going to fucking ruin gameplay or competitive shit.
    Since when is a company actually paying attention to their games a bad thing?

    People whine if a game is ignored and people whine if it's getting updated.

    I don't mind it because you can just disable steam cloud and not have your achievements or stats recored. So I can just jump in and have fun like I used to.

    But there's one thing I absolutely hate.
    You can't change your name! I hope I'm wrong on that but I don't see an
    option to change it in the game.
    I am going to miss seeing all those hilarious random names like ... uh ... "Elvis Presley's left foot" or something. This will make the game more boring for me to be honest.

    Just got back from playing it, now let's see.

    -Custom content still works.
    -Achievements are working.
    -Singleplayer still works fully.
    -HDR and Montion blur effects add to the looks of the game.
    -Servers are working and connecting to them is a speedy proccess.
    -Stats are updated real-time and are fully accurate.
    -S'more stuff.

    But the Multicore rendering really seems to lag out my mouse movements, and walking becomes jumpy. perhaps it's just me but I'd like to know if anyone else is having to deal with this same issue.

    I don't see what the big deal is
    Oh no, but your precious zombie mod isn't working, boo hoo.
    And ever since the update my CTs have been incredibly shiny.

    so far i cant join any servers only play single player because something like this:
    Invalid Steam key size.

    and everytime i turn on my flashlight the game shuts down. stupid valve thinks that graphics make a good game in this case the game is very slowed down. the water looks awful in some cases and there isnt really that much of a graphical improvement so far and for some reason the game is muuuch slower.

    but wait wohoo we got achievements. wow i couldnt care less.

    i want to downgrade again

    I actually hate this update. In my opinion they are making it too main stream. Seems like it is becoming a TF2 type of game. Good gameplay and simplicity is what they have always done and it has been perfect, no need to change things.

    I haven't had any problems with it, it increased by fps by over 9000 100 :D

    I agree with Amen, as far as I'm concerned achievements and better graphics can only be a good thing.

    I'm sorry Whoop but that's completely incorrect.

    The Achievments and graphics are minor improvements by everyone's estimation.

    CSS is a very old game with 6 years of custom content and mods many of which are no longer maintained. A perfect example: mani mod is still regarded as one of the best admin mods for features with many that still have not been duplicated in it's major competitors. Yet this update has killed Mani and without support anymore it will remain that way.

    The update has destroyed nearly every map that relies on assigning players weapons, it has crippled nearly every mod (a double blow for jailbreak players. CTs no longer spawn with weapons and the LR mod is broken).

    The update was needless and has caused massive harm.

    In addition it is preventing clients from accessing many servers, has removed GUIs, cleared favourites, decreased FPS for many and lagged servers for still unclear reasons.

    How is this good????

    You nailed it ripper - I've been running Jeeper's Gungame for over 4 years and to have all that work flushed in a half hour just so Valve can get all the little kids with Apples on board makes me puke. I can't believe they just disable eventscripts like this when its the thing that has kept CS:S going for the last few years. GunGame, Minigames, surf, rpg, zombies - without all those mods Counterstrike would have been dead and buried long ago. Total f#(k job by Valve.

    Yeah they released an update this morning to fix texture problems and mods.

    I have hope, it looks like they plan to try and fix the stuff they broke. Still a lot of texture errors (I've seen maps of pure purple) and I'm not a fan of the deathcam but we're getting there

    ugh, graphics aren't increasing gameplay.
    It's a fun game but many of the things they added like achievements ruin it imo.
    It gives a tf2 feeling to it which is imo very bad.
    Look at CS 1.6. It's fun and has fffffff ugly graphics.
    And mac did influence this update.
    They made the game less serious looking.
    There are no hardcore mac gamers (except for me soon, getting macbook pro).

    I love how everyone was bitching that CS:S had no updates for years an now that there is one, everyones shitting themselves in anger.

    I understand all the frustration (I myself hold some complaints) but all it will take is some extra coding and mods like (GG, ZM, JB) will be up and running. Or so I hope :S

    CS:S is not turning TF2 like. TF2 did not invent achievements, did not invent the revenge/domination system, did most certainly not invent better graphics and did NOT invent FPS. Whine all you want, you'll be on my faggots list.
