Counter-Strike 1.6: Lagging during gameplay 1mb Connection

Hi,

I have been Counter-Strike 1.5/1.6 for around 5 years now and have recently been encountering some problems during gameplay. I have heard people telling me to 'change my rates' and constantly arguing at me because I appear laggy on the servers when I kill them. I agree that it is unfair for them and I want to make this affect go away so I can beat them without any excuses.

What are the default rates for a 1mb connection? I'm on ntl:home if that helps...

First solution will be awarded with a grade of A (80 easy points).

Thanks,

Connection rate.... check out "rates"
http://www.planethalflife.com/cs/guide/console.shtm

OR

you mean "frame rate?"....that's dependant on  your video card.  More implicitly to dropping your screen resolution down in either size or pixels/textures.  turning off nades effects like flash & smoke are helpful.  that spikes the network.

Also tweaking your system and get rid of background programs.

ciao u noob ;-)

Hehe, thanks irwinpks :) I'm familiar with most commands, but not rates for some reason, I just play the game :D I also have an Intel Onboard Graphics Controller - which barely does 15-20 fps :(

Cheers all...

@nerdx...lemme in on what server you play.. i come bring my mp5 ;-)
Just kidding..

if you increase your frame rate to at 30fps...you will be somewhat more in sync with everyone else.

mp5 is also a problem on my current graphics card... I shoot them so good on my screen, headshot and everything, but they just don't seem to die - leaving me just basically standing there taking the shots. I've updated drivers and everything - I even feel that this has made it worse.

Just might have to buy a PCI! graphics card to own everything in the entire world and eventually own the Universe ;-)
Just kidding...

It's not the gun...it's the man behind the gun. ;-)

Actually if you are pulling off headshots.. then the a video upgrade will work for you.
