First, you are not the only one who has this. It's very-very common. Second, it happens because the left arm, which holds the front end of the gun, also covers a (huge) part of the chest and abdomen. On this picture you can clearly see that when an opponent faces you(and it happens most of the time), his body is greatly protected by his left arm. P.S. ...

Interp is short for interpolation, a computer science term (technically math, but that's unrelated). In Counter-Strike and CS Source the server interpolates based on your previous position your next position. Since the server determines 'where' you are the decision of this calculation determines where you can get hit from. Likewise your client also ...

If friendly fire is on you can shoot through your teammate and damage the enemy, but the damage to the enemy is minimal. Your teammate will take full damage.

Their lagging does not hurt the server. Players with high ping usually lag visibly in-game, such as seeming to stutter or 'teleport'. This makes them more difficult to hit as they're not actually where they appear to be, giving a bad experience for the other players.

These two games use different engines. I was going to write some differences that I remember, but then I found a set of videos on YouTube that compare a lot of things between CS 1.6 and CS:S. Here's the final result of these videos: A short explanation of every point: Grenade Sizes: they are bigger in 1.6. So it's somewhat easier to see them and get a ...

The most efficient way to climb up/down a ladder is to face the ladder on an angle (so you are perpendicular to the ladder) and look straight up to the sky then use a combination of the up key with a left/right key to move diagonally on the ladder.

With respect to bunny hopping, in the old GoldSrc games (Counter-Strike, TFC, HLDM) you could gain significant speed when jumping and strafing (moving sideways, e.g. with A and D) Begin by moving forward and jumping. While in mid-air, stop holding forward (W), and only strafe with either A or D. When you hit the ground, immediately jump. You continue to ...

Some people claim it offers a better field of view or gives you an advantage. But mostly it's just down to personal preference. In some cases, players may prefer playing in 4:3 because that's how they played earlier iterations of the Counter-Strike series (such as 1.6).

Ping is a function of your internet speed, and distance to the server. Network geographically close servers will have lower pings than those far away. Without a faster internet connection or a closer server your stuck where you are at. If your computer is connected to the internet via a wireless network then that could be a bottleneck in your speed. The ...

Reading through the link provided by @pixel above, it appears the reason that strafe-jumping works is actually pretty simple. Instead of capping the maximum velocity, the authors of Quake/CS cap the net-acceleration of the player such that the velocity in the acceleration's direction will not exceed the max velocity. This means that, if you accelerate in a ...

In addition: If FF is off if you shoot a team-mate in the head their head will jerk throwing their aim off significantly; you can see sparks thrown off the head when this happens if you look closely - try it by launching your own server with bots.

Steam allows for games to specify the minimum content required for launching a game. This feature is more often used for single-player games where you wouldn't realistically need more than the first few levels right away. From your description, it sounds like CS does the same, being that the maps and map-specific models are the largest pieces of content ...

Your subnet mask is not allowing you to see other subnets on the network. In routing, the network mask tells your computer what IPs it can see. In your case, your subnet mask is probably set to 255.255.255.0, which only allows your computer to see IPs on the 172.31.54.x subnet. To tell your computer to see IPs on the 172.31.x.x subnet, you'll have to set ...

Ways to roughly gauge bottlenecks: Set the games you want to play on ultra low quality, do they run smooth? If not, its probably the CPU. Turn the graphics up to the level you can tolerate playing at, is it smooth? If not, its your graphics card. Does your game stutter or have long load times? If so, its probably your memory. Your entire computer is ...

It might be difficult to completely answer your question, but I can provide some considerations. Which games do you want to play? If they are fairly old ( 3-4 years ) and your graphics card is new, then usually investing in more RAM helps. Are you ok with poor graphics? Dialing down the graphics settings, anti-aliasing, anisotropic filtering, far distance, ...

Maybe 'micro-sniping' = 'quick-scoping'! It can be done by pressing the scope and shoot button almost together. It results in an almost unscope shoot but eliminating the uncertainty of an unscoped awp shot. I think its called micro because the scope time period is very small
