I said the textures and the menus look a lot better, that was it. The game itself is still the same...

Achievements, among other things, including stats. Finally giving this game what it deserves.
I'm not in the beta, but I'm trying that method with validate, who knows. Hopefully it works.

achievements and stats? in counter strike? more mass appeal bells and whistles that have a detrimental effect on gameplay. shouldn't hurt CS too much though. it's not a game for newbs.

The game is exactly the same in the beta as it is in the original. It won't affect gameplay at all.

Really? So then what the hell is the point of changing textures and menus and calling it a limited beta? That's so stupid.

I agree... like I told Vin yesterday... no point in this "beta" nonsense. Just release the stupid update. Guess they are trying to generate some hype to get people interested.

The regular game, CSS, is now updated. It updated yesterday, the Beta no longer exists I think.

All of the mods for CSS went bye bye. I tried looking for a DM Gun Game server and even asked around, most people said that the mods were having to be completely redone. I really like the mods for CSS.
