So, does anyone know how it's possible to activate the D3D render mode in cs 1.6. I can't play OpenGL and I can't record on Software mode. D3D is the best mode for my PC and use. If anyone can help, that would be greatly appreciated.

    Valve has removed DirectX from Half-life along with other features such as joystick support (but you can use a 3rd party program to get that working).
    -d3d in launch options doesn't work anymore.

    I suggest you get OpenGL working if you can. Why can't you play the game with it? Any errors displayed?

    Man .. I use a laptop from 2006, it gives me on OpenGL around 100-150 fps and rarely drops under 60 fps, I guess there is a problem with your Gpu's drivers
