Need to up fps if I can play


Recommended Posts

I just installed CS:S after about 5 years of not playing it. I am using a 6 year old MacBook Pro and it runs pretty badly.


I found a config that is supposed to help and it seemed to do something but not enough.

One thing it did was put a ton of stats up on my screen to show me what's happening and I noticed that every time the game loads a bunch of new "entities" I freeze for a split second. This is a problem when it comes to gunfights. I was on Retro today for a map playing against Bots and it was playable but tough.


Anyone got any advice? I personally do not care at all what the game looks like, as long as it is at Sega Genesis graphic levels I'm good.
