ati_npatch 0
ati_subdiv 0
U should also turn off the vertical synchronization, but i have no idea how u can do that.. Hope it will help.


Btw. Does anyone know what is wrong with my settings on 7? When I start cs1.6 it doesnt switch to resolution 800x600 but remains in basic win 7 (1280x800). The aplication size is 800x600 points but its centered and all around is black screen. Its impossible to play.
Any advice? Thx
Try

-fullscreen -w 800 -h 600

in "Set launch options"

Sounds like a scaling issue. I'm not sure where the settings are for ATI drivers but there should be an option to disable scaling.

Hey guys, if you're still having trouble, try disabling your sound card in device manager and then run the game and see if it plays the same. If the choke / lag / stutters / are gone, check out this thread for the fix: https://www.sevenforums.com/gaming/31980-lag-online-games-windows-7-a.html#post331641

Thanks pinstripe,

This seems to have permanently fixed the problem for me. For those of you who haven't tried this yet, this is what I did:

Quote:
Leave the multimedia class scheduler service running, but disable its network throttling "feature":
  • Open regedit
  • Go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Multimedia\SystemProfile
  • There will be an entry for network performance throttling, default value is 10; set it to FFFFFFFF hex (willl look like 0xFFFFFFFF to the right of the entry)
  • Reboot

Hey I think I mat have the solution,
First right-click on "Counter-Strike" in Steam, Properties, Local Files then press "Defragment Cache Files", wait for it to finish, restart steam and open the game.
Type in console "fps_max 999" and press enter.
Type in console "developer 1" and press enter.
you should see a big increase in FPS... Hopefully.
Good Luck.

IF you disable the soundcard, will you still be able to hear in-game sound?!

I would not recommend turning on developer 1 in Counter Strike, it actually decreases performance in game rather than helping it. CS 1.6 is only able to run at a max of 100FPS, and running at anything higher is counter productive.

Disabling network throttling is not the same as disabling the sound card.

Hi guys, exactly the same problem here.

Everything worked just fine until this saturday when I reinstalled my Win 7 x64.

When I tried to play CS 1.6 I got a massive FPS drop (even to 5 FPS !!!!) when I met an opponent and shoot.

I tried also Left 4 Dead and it was unplayable in exteriors.

I was afraid my graphic card was damaged but when I installed Win XP today, everything works fine again and I got nice 100 FPS.

I think some windows update caused this.

My specs:

Core 2 Duo 2.2 GHz
Gigabyte P35-DS3R
Asus EN 8800GT
4 GB ADATA RAM
