    Thought I'd start a thread for those wishing to arrange games.
    I've been playing a couple of weeks and I'm begining to get a feel for it all now. My best game to date was yeaterday where I managed a score of 23 kills to 6 deaths :smashin: (not brilliant by any stretch but I'm happy :blush: ).

    I'm up for a game anytime just let me know :lease:

    I've been on the Wireplay servers over the last week, unfortunately I'm working tonight so won't be available, however Sunday night after 9 could be on the cards if anyone's interested.

    Can someone point me in the direction of some good intro help on this game so I know what I'm supposed to be doing.... at the moment I don't even know how you tell whether someone is on my side or not (doesn't help!).

    Cheers

    if your a CT (counter terrorist) your dressed in green and if your a T (Terrorist) your dressed in white/blue. It took me a while to work it out too. Obviously don't shhot your own team mates and take a quick look at the start of the game to see what colours they're wearing. The skins are the same for all players in your team (at the moment) but some new skins will be out sometime soon. Any more questions fire away:)

    The screwed hit boxes are killing this for me at the moment.
    Its just instinct to shoot at the head rather than kneecaps.

    Same here I'm at a loss as to what works best from one game to the next. Nothing seems to work all the time and it lacks consistancy. I've watched many an elite player and they always appear to be missing the target but getting the kill or even a headshot. I've been in a situation before where I have hit someone when only their head was visable which to me would logically mean a headshot and instant death. Only for it to just cause minimal damage and them to turn around and headshot me instantly:confused:
    Even the pro's are having amoan about the net coding so lets hope valve get around to solving these issues as it all seems a bit random to me:(

    I've got today and Friday off work so will be wanting a game anytime your available;)

    Any players new to CS source are welcome and I'd be prepared to run through the basics if we can find an empty server. I'm fairly new to the game myself but have picked up the basics the last 3 weeks.
    This game has a very severe learning curve initially especially playing with veterans so I advise you get all the help you can :D (No cheatin' mind :nono:)

    Not to my knowledge. I generally use the A-lan server that OcUK members use. here's a few servers I've found to be freindly and good with admin not too far away:-


    [A-LAN] Counter-Strike Source 83.142.53.23:27015
    Plopsters Paradise Source 217.158.150.54:27015
    jolt.co.uk - <ch4v> Clanserver 195.149.21.99:27045

    or use the freinds button to find your mates who are playin' :smashin:

    There are lots of people from the avforums playing now seek out their gamers tags in the stick at the top of the pc gaming forum ;)

    Are you up for a game this evening at all?

    I am still a relative noob, getting a few more kills than deaths.

    Let me know

    I've been playing cs for years but gave up with it about 6 months ago
    but now that source has come out i might get back into it again
    I had a lot of fun in a couple of servers last night and one big plus in source is the flashbangs,old cs they never really got it right but in source they seem to have got it spot on.

    I've seen you on there plenty Ethics but it's usually face down in the dirt directly afterwards :rolleyes:
    Can't seem to get it together on the A-Lan server as most of the people that frequent it are just too good for me. I have the occasional good round but my hit's and damage dealt seems to change from game to game and never appears to be consistent even though my aim is usually roughly the same:(
    I've tried messing with my rates to some beneficial degree but again different rates seem to work better at different times :confused:
    I have 512 adsl and my settings are rate 9999, cl rate 10000,cl updaterate 20 and cl cmd rate 30 (default settings). Can you confirm that these rate are correct for my connection or suggest what may net beneficial results as it's so frustrating always having rubber bullet syndrome :mad: What makes it worse is the dismal stats I have as I only just have a kdr of 1.01 :blush:
    I also notice on the 19 occasions I've encountered you I have one kill notched up to your 18. Think I'll give you a wide birth in future lol :thumbsdow

    Try:

    rate 25000
    cl_cmdrate 100
    cl_updaterate 100

    TBH I don't have any of the issues that people seem to be talking about .....
    except for Chateau when someone throws a grenade the odd time.
    Alot of people spectate others when dead and then start talking about hit boxes being off ........ there is a delay in what you see in spectate, so when you see the person shoot, the aim seems to be wildly off target - but in reality its usually bang on.

    As for rubber bullets ..... fireing a mp5 into someones chest @ 25 yrds while he shoots back at your head with a colt .........

    Practice keeping your aim higher up - when you go round corners , watch doorways etc , look at your team mates and where their heads come to on walls and door frames ...... then keep ypur aim at that height.

    If you are busy tryin to hit the body and taking down someones armour - they have ample time to hit you in the head with a DE and its goodnight vienna.

    Hi Guys.

    I need all the help I can get.

    Only if you are having problems with choke, lag or bullet registration.
    Check to see if your settings are lower than the ones I posted - if they are put them up to that.
    Basically push them up until you have problems - then drop them back slighly.
    Your aim is to get the fastest data transferes between yourself and the game server without loosing data - as that means any movements and shots you make are registered quickly and you reduce the possible risk of bullets not hitting what you aimed at 'when' you fired.
    Alot of servers have capd max transfere rates - so even setting them too high will only result in you being able to transfere at the maximum the server allows.
    ....... for 'rate' that is often set to 20,000 server side.
    If you set your rate to 25,000 , you wil automatically be turned down to 20,000 with no issues.
