    In case you Counter_strike fans haven't noticed, the new version was released yesterday and it is pretty good. Bunny-hoppin has been pretty much eliminated, the new maps are quite nice, and the voice software is a cool feature. The only negative is for people who use ATI video cards, you can no longer use Open GL. Other then that, I highly recommend you download the new version, it is worth it.

    The title is supposed to be 1.3, not 3.1. Can an Admin fix it? Thanks.

    Dunno about you, but I've been playing some and I notice a lot of cheating going on. I've heard rumors of a headshot cheat, and I've been witnessing it first hand.
    not much fun when people start cheating...

    Wolf,
    I noticed the same thing last night. I hate cheaters and they do ruin the game. However, there are good servers out there that do a good job of keeping cheaters to a minimum.
    Also, I have been playing a lot of Day of Defeat lately. That is another fantastic mod.

    Man, I haven't played Counterstrike in ages. All the cheating and bitching just got to me. Too bad really, as it is a great multiplayer game.

    I wouldn't be too quick to accuse people of using 'headshot cheats.' This patch fixes the controversial hitbox issue, which basically means that damage is recorded more accurately now. A lot of people are reporting an increase in headshots as a side effect.

    Too right. We play CS at work with friends, nobody cheats, and the amount of headshots now is INSANE. I can't believe they let it go out like this.

    After doing some extensive playing, I have to agree that there is little cheating going on. The aiming and hitboxes are much improved and this is the reason for more headshots. I actually think this is a benefit for the game, since it will award the skilled players and now make the less skilled people work harder to improve.

    when you are getting headshots consistently when just spraying down a hall, that is not skill. That is either extremely lucky or somethings broken (again).

    I'll admit that I'm not too picky usually about where I play, but I still contend that there have been an increase in cheating. I'll agree that the hitbox issues contribute somewhat to it, but I think that game is now a little unbalanced because it (it makes the AK even more of a force IMHO.)
    I am kinda tired of the 'guy jumps around corner, kills two people with headshots before they even shoot' kind of cr*p.
    Oh, I do like the changes to inferno and like DE_storm. My only real complaint is that the new maps are kinda huge and require 12+ players to be fun.
