Last update removes D3D render support. So if your drivers doesnt support openGL you cant play this game.

Its works very good for me both windows and linux version.

Because I cannot even start some initial screen where I might configure these graphics stuff.
I bought a product that worked. The "upgrade" destroyed the product without even a warning. If a car company would behave like this, people would sue the company and it's management out of existence.
But hey! It's just software, so let's destroy our customers property!

Steam forums need to have a thumbs up/down ratings for comments, so the most relevant sentiment can be deduced.

hmm.. i'll have to try using the software version and other graphics setting to see the new differences

When the update came it brought back the FPS problems that I suffered from explosions before I fixed it in options. And then made it so I couldn't fix it by giving me only two options: FPS issues or ♥♥♥♥ty graphics. Pick your poison.

If you got some troubles with this update you can report about it here[github.com].

its not too different but i don't see why the update was important

What i hate most about the update is the lack of information. No one tells you what and when had been changed, removed or affected. I mean it's no secret that dod is pretty dead now, but making the game even unstartable without -nofbo command, and these fps drops many users had reported... come on.

There are MANY onboard video chipsets that suffer from extremely poor performance (or complete lockups and crashes) when selecting the OpenGL video renderer for any of the GoldSource games.

Case(s) and point(s):

I have a Dell PC that was manufactured in early 2006 (well enough newer than your "2001+" cutoff date). The onboard Intel video chipset resulted in absolutely HORRID framerate in all of my GoldSource games (CS/CS:CZ/CS:CZ-DS/DoD) when using OpenGL (5FPS-20FPS).

The ONLY way that I could play them smoothly was by using the Direct3D graphics renderer, which brought my framerate up to a playable 80FPS-99FPS (depending on the architecture within any given map)... albeit with only SLIGHTLY lesser graphics quality (e.g. no "detail textures", and the lack of various "fog" effects... no big freakin' deal in my book).

Now, after I bought an ATI 9600 Radeon Pro AGP video card, I was finally able to use the OpenGL graphics renderer with smooth framerate... but on that onboard Intel video chipset (circa early 2006) was TOTALLY UNPLAYABLE using OpenGL.

Another that comes to mind, one of my family's PCs purchased in early 2005. The motherboard had an onboard S3 Savage Pro video chipset, same results... HORRID completely unplayable framerate.


(AND AN EDIT) So what does this mean to any players who can NOT use the OpenGL graphics renderer smoothly or with stability? the SOFTWARE GRAPHICS RENDERER <PUKE>! Oh, and as a side note... the minimap (as well as the Steam overlay) does NOT function with the Software graphics renderer.


If it ain't broke, don't "fix" it...

alright, the reason i made this thread was to know why so many people were complaining over an update for a 10 year old game. not for you to complain about graphics settings

we get the point but i got my answer and it seems pretty obvious to everyone else why they hate it

That (the removal of the Direct3D graphics renderer) is one of the main (and one of the several) reasons why folks are complaining about the recent update(s)... so it's pertinent to the discussion at hand :wink: :)

yes but annother discussion could be started with a more focused topic that dosent have the occasional person just complaining about the banners being gone. good point though
