Yea, I love that. And whoever the idiot is that installed the GFX card needs to learn to put it in the right way. The fan should be facing down (omg)

I finished preloading half life 2 thinking that it would cover most of CS: Source too but it still says 364 minutes. Im gonna let it download overnight so it should be finished by tomorrow morning.

You would think. 512 DSL. You people who were able to download it early missed the servers getting hammered this bad. It went from 50 minutes to 600 minutes just minutes after 5:00 central time. It's like everyone started downloading at the same time. Anyways it's picked up the pace a bit and should be finished in about another 180 minutes...

Make sure in the options menu for steam you change your interenet connection to 512KB DSL. My downloading was horrendously slow until I did this.

Dang it must be taking that guy a long time to d/l that stuff. I kept up with all the preloads and started downloading CS:S last night. Guess how long it took me to START d/ling CS:S and BEGIN playing it? Less than 5 MINS!!!!!!! That was frickin awesome. I thought I would've had to wait for the "Steam Servers are busy. Try again later." crap. But man, I'm real impressed with CS:S, even though last night was my first time playing it ever. Someone please make a 6800 GT skin for that Radeon mess . . . haha.

Yeah, I gave in to temptation and pre-loaded it too. I too am impressed! I wasn't expecting a lot less out of CS-Source. But GEEZ does it run good! My average fps is like 80-85! Great netcode too, there's almost no lag on any of the servers. Plus, it's a blast to play CS with new graphics, and without those damn shields.

I thought it was kinda funny how even with the pretty shiny floors and all that fancy hoop-la, it still runs far better than Far Cry. Far Cry sucks.

Uh...why wouldn't it?

You're running around in largely empty levels with simplistic architecture and very little dynamic lighting. I'm not saying it doesn't look good, it does - but complaining that Far Cry doesn't have the same performance? Of course it doesn't.

In Far Cry, you have massive draw distance, complex enemy AI (for todays standards), densely packed vegitation, and in some levels Doom3-style lighting. Obviously, running around in warmed-over Counterstrike levels isn't going to present the same burden to your system.

Don't expect HL2 to get the same performance as CS:S.
