What do people reckon the best music is for playing CS:S ? I think a touch of opera is quite the delectable treat or maybe some hard core punk rock ?

    There have already been multiple threads on this subject. I'd say anything by Rammstein, especially this song:

    How do you listen to music while palying cs other than opening it up in another program. Like is there a way for it to run IN css.

    Gahhhhh Nickelback (ears bleed)
    I don't really think there's a way to play music IN css, but you can do what I do. Just open iTunes and leave it in the background while it's playing. My keyboard has "next", "previous", and volume buttons on it, so I don't need to minimize or anything.

    Rab1dHobo thats the one and only song of theres that I even remotely like.

    Anything by At Vance or Crush40 is also a proper killing mood setter.

    Green Day is overrated and Emo since warning.

    Tsugaru is a pretty cool techno-y trance-y song, but its only about 1:30
    Also, a lot of random trance and techno is good.

    Green Day is good pre-American Idiot. Anyone who says they're gay should listen to some of their older, better stuff. They are overrated, yes, but some of their old stuff is good.

    That's from Drowning Pool right ? It depends Darko, if you are on a DM or a surf map, you don't really need the footstep sounds. If you have a clanwar or you are playing on a public then you do.

    you used to be able to, sadly they got rid of the valve mp3 player, you can still use its just complicated and no interface and the the songs restart every round i recommend the "creative source media player it reacts with keyboard buttons "Play/Pause" if you have them. Here, cant seem to find the download.

    Darude, rammstein, puddle of mudd, 30 seconds to mars, revolverheld, silbermond, other random rock cds. no hip hop, rap, country, opera, jazz, pop, or any of that other crap for me. rock only, because rock>all other music!!

    EDIT- i also like some orchestral stuff, and that makes for a pretty good gaming experience.
