CS 1.6, Lagging
Hello There,

I've just installed CS 1.6 and have Many Problems with my Mouse, or the Mouse "Input".

You can look without any Problems, but you can'T shoot very well. Sometimes he shoots, then only 10 Bullets, nothing more, on the second try he shoots nothing etc ...

Have anybody the same issuses?

same problem

Yeah same here. The game is not yet in a shape where I can comfortably play multiplayer. But I'm sure once it's finished, it'll run better than on Windows.

As of the moment I have problems with aforementioned mouse button input being discarded, AA/AF being forced on, audio delay (switched to PulseAudio, better than ALSA but still present) and unsmooth gameplay overall.

Mine plays flawlessly.

Had to work on my rates a bit but ended up good at rate 30000, cl_updaterate 101 cl_cmdrate 101 fpsmax 101 and vsync forced off in my AMD control panel.

Also running windowed at 12whatever by whatever in widescreen. Initially I had some input lag when quick switching and reloading. Firing also felt funny but that seemed to go away when I disabled vsync.

Also had to fiddle with my iwconfig settings a touch, but that's just because my wireless needed some love and care.

We may have different conceptions of what is flawless. I've played the game for over 10 years so I'm insisting on keeping mine. I have 100.0 fps all the time and rates that are proven to work.

Which distro you running btw?

Do you guys use compiz? I had the same problem, I think it was the edge flipping option that made the problems. If you want to test it deactivate "Destop Wall" / "Desktop Cube" and it should work "flawless". You will find these options in ccsm.

Mint 32bit. I don't run with any of the compiz stuff on. I avoid any of the compositing black magic. Causes too many annoying problems, even for the sweet spinning cubes. I also don't normally use dual monitors if i'm going to game, I did notice CS really had an issue with that.

I haven't had any of the audio delay issues I read about. I have some Asus card with a CMI8788 chipset per lspci.

I've played since whenever 1.3 came out, I know it was sometime in high school after 2000 something or other. I know how the game is supposed to play. It's a beta on a platform not well known for consistency across configurations so I'm simply giving what I have and my outcome, not get in some e-peen match. I have hardware all a few years old on a stable distro with most of the bells and whistles disabled so it's probably an easier time than some other setups.

The compiz solution fixed my problems. Btw, this affects Half-Life too.

That was the reason! Now i can Play very well :)
i'm using linux mint .. and i dont have big problems .. counter strike work great with a small resolution for ex. 1924x768, no lag, no loss, max fps 60..

I have linux mint maya 13 and i dont think i have compiz (dunno, if it's installed by defaul), but i do have lags, in netgraph lines are like with techno song.

Route is clear, i am only one connected to the router. In windows ping about 35, in linux about 80 and higher.

What can cause this problem?
