CS 1.6 Help with fps drop (because of new update)
Hello guys I am having a big problem which nobody could help me until today. When I was playing cs 1.6 before the update I always had 100fps, they would not even move, it was just 99,9/100,0 always!
Now after the update I am facing sick drops, and when some HE explodes they will drop like to 50 or 30 and then move up again. When i use the flashlight the same thing happens and the fps go down until i turn it off. I don't get it and it was perfect before the update, the update must have made something to ruin my game. Does anyone know how to help me?

Thank you, regards.

gl_ansio 0?
2013-02-25 16:11:03
This major update, added an option in-game for anisotropic filtering, which before, you could only change it from your video card, that's why you see the textures better.
However if you want to see the the textures from the game as they were before the update, just set the setting to 0.

edit: sry for replying to you, i initially thought that you want an answer for that lol

the problem is the hl.exe couldnt use ur nvidia. And it useing the integrated video card. There is many hack on internet but im fed up with for that im alwasy had to do many shit for playing normally. They just want that u start play with them new sheet. And buying new power plant... Yes they say is interest for linux... XD Yehh and 13 years it was not interesting just now when just the old generations playing with 1.6. Maybe they will update, and change everything back cause it was downdate, not update...

2013-07-17 15:55:13
Ok its not only about 1.6 cause the stean is not only around 1.6. But... Maybe the reason was just that the many ppl not playing 1.6 any more. And now was here the time to make steam for linux.... I donnow... But its smellty for me...

U use laptop with nvidia videocard?
2013-02-25 18:56:15
yes kind sir

1. Cut your counter-strike folder away from your steamapps and store it somewhere else
2. Go to your Steam library, right click on Counter-Strike and "Delete local content"
3. Download Counter-Strike again by opening it through Steam library
4. Use -nofbo (you can also try -nomsaa if you like the new rendering setting) in launch options (where you also keep your -noforcemparms -noforcemacel commands to remove mouse acceleration and -freq to set your refresh rate)
5. Your cstrike folder is now in steamapps\common\half-life\cstrike, which is where you should put your configs, bots, etc
6. Load up Counter-Strike and uncheck "Wait for vertical sync" and "Enable HD models" on the Video tab
7. Use gl_vsync 0 (removes vertical sync), gl_aniso 0 (removes anisotrophic filtering) and fps_max 99 (sets your max fps to 99; otherwise movement etc won't be proper)


If you have a laptop that supports the NVIDIA Optimus technology, here is how you fix possibly fps problems caused by CS no longer being detected as "Counter-Strike" by NVIDIA, but instead as hl.exe (which is ran by the onboard Intel video card):

You need to add "hl.exe" as a game in NVIDIA control panel's program settings (under 3D settings), and change the preferred graphics processor to NVIDIA. If it's blocked, you need to use NVIDIA Inspector (http://www7.zippyshare.com/v/93516335/file.html) to fix it.

After adding "hl.exe", load up NVIDIA Inspector and click on the driver settings button (with a wrench on it) in the middle of the program, next to your driver version. Also make sure you close NVIDIA control panel at this time.

Find "Half Life" from the drop down menu, and then scroll down to "enable application optimus option" and set it to "SHIM_RENDERING_MODE_ENABLE" and click apply settings.

Open up NVIDIA control panel again, change the setting to "NVIDIA" and click apply. For me this reverted the setting and made it greyed out again, but once I re-did the fix on NVIDIA inspector, it stayed as "NVIDIA" and my fps issues were (at least seemingly/so far) fixed.

gl_ansio 0
lurppis did it wrong
2013-02-26 09:49:24
nope, lurppis is right, the problem is not with this new stupid commands, his tutorial fixed my game.
2013-02-28 20:39:21
i mean this cvar - gl_ansio 0, not gl_aniso 0 as he wrote
2013-02-28 20:43:22

ENJOY :DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD
2013-02-26 09:27:14
ah wtf.. had enough trouble with this shit now. Why don't they fix it? why make new updates and fuck up a game so you need alot of new commands etc? My CS won't work even after reinstalling and putting the new commands into launch options. Do they even test these updates before they launch em? Looks like they really want to hurt cs 1.6. People quit because of this. Maybe I have to go back to 1.5 or just play cs offsteam. This sucks.

you should create a profile for HL.exe within your videocard driver
2013-02-28 18:01:16
this is what happens when I try to create a profile.. I can't change a option.
