Yes, but like I said, it also depends if all his settings are at high (including anti-aliasing and anti-filtering which creates crystal-clear pictures but drops framerates in doing so.) But anything less than 30fps is wrong. We can never be sure because everything depends on the cpu, memory, video card, and free resources. So 50fps is perfectly fine considering settings are at maximum.

Yea I've been reading some on other forums about this and some people get good framerates while others get like 15 fps with around my comp specs. i get about 30-40 on 1024x768 with medium settings, which compared to other people's results i saw, dissapoints me.

I only get about 3100 fps with glx gears which is also discouraging. Although I know glxgears isn't really a reliable benchmarking tool. Seems I also only get good performance when using DirectX 7 with HL2. I've tweaked a lot (with hardware, Cedega, and HL2) and still can't figure out why i can't get better fps in HL2 / CS:S.

One thing i'm curious about is trying to enable Fast Write on my card, i edited the modules.conf file as specified and still says it's disabled.

If anybody else has any ideas, lemme know.

Man.. I get 30fps on my DX7 ATi Radeon 7000 64MB with everything on high. But high only to what it can support. Not sure, but my fast write was enabled automatically. Get the latest drivers for your video card and for your motherboard.

dude, yes you can run steam in offline mode. login make sure you are saving settings, dont log out, unplug from internet connection, restart your computer, then start steam through P2P, and it should give you the options "retry connection, or start in offline mode", and there Steam in offline mode.

Yeah, I know about the offline mode but you need to save the password in Steam. But your way, when you unplug, Steam still has your password so clicking in offline mode will let you go through.

Better movement and environmental effects. Better aiming such as in sniping.
