    Counter-Strike:Source Beta!

    dunno if anyone has seen this but to those of you that like CS:S or interested in it and haven't you should download the update here!
    it's a 1.638GB download.

    Wonder if the "many source engine updates" part will interfere with bunnyhopping lol

    *Yeah, all of the Steam servers are currently slow.

    Yep, available to all who own CSS. I've also been trying to download it but its just staying paused (until I can get in contact with their servers I guess).

    Hmm. I used to get that on my laptop occasionally with a 6800 go except it tended to replace floor or wall textures, not overlay the screen like that. Alt-tabbing worked sometimes for me, and if not, a reboot usually solved it.

    I'm running CrossFire, Catalyst at default and everything cranked up in game with no problems.

    I just realized, why isn't this posted in the games section?

    maybe they can merge the posts with this one to the end of the other. I hadn't heard of it here and visit daily multiple times(homepage lol) so didn't think there had been another. link please and i'll ask a mod.
