Just in case somebody else is having this problem:

I finally finished downloading C-S:Source, and was distressed to see that the game refused to run in full screen mode. It gave me some strange video error when it started.

Steam's support system wasn't helpful, but I managed to find a solution on a message board somewhere (forgot the link). You have to specify your preferred resolution and the refresh rate at that resolution when starting the game.

I used:
-width 1024 -refresh 120

(use the Properties of the game to set those launch parameters)

You'll obviously need to know what refresh rate your system will have at that particular resolution (it's not necessarily the same as your desktop refresh rate!). I used ReForce to get my refresh rate.

One day I was handcuffed to a chair & had toothpicks in my eyelids and a vice on my head.


That explains so much about you.

One day I was handcuffed to a chair & had toothpicks in my eyelids and a vice on my head. They forced me to watch a PeeWee Herman movie. He would say, "I know you are but what am I?" as an insult comeback. It was lame, limp, and useless, just like your pathetic, uncreative comebacks. Now go buy that cookie with some of your allowance you get for the... dealie thing you do with your dad, and send it on out to me.

Oh yeah, I hear that your dad would have given you allowance just because, like most other kids, but you really liked it this way so he felt obliged to continue letting you in...

You are a real sicko. Oh and please leave your sister alone. She's way the fuck too young for that shit.

If you'd explain how Pee Wee Herman fits into what I said I'll give you a cookie.



Nice try, by the way, going back to the age thing. Redundancy has no effect on you, nor does hypocrisy.

Again, another PeeWee Herman reply. Uncreative.

Now go push your daddy's love hole & earn your allowance.

Oh the age thing. Yeah, that's good. I wish I would have thought of that. That's always funny. Hey, wait, I did, in the post directly above Hooley's.

Oh I get it. He's doing his best impersonation of Jack-Off Pee-wee, "I know you are but what am I?"


Wow, you sure are clever Hooley.

That was pretty damned funny. I was laughing my ass off. Oh no, wait a minute, that was another post. Yours was retarded & smelled of teenager immaturity.

I'm guessing you purchased the game already. Oh man, what a stupid fucking moron! I bet you also purchased a video card last year when the game was supposed to be released then. Oh man, what a stupid fucking moron! Wow, you probably even had an ATI voucher. Oh man, what a stupid fucking moron! Your head is so far up Gabe's ass when he says hello, you wave. Oh man, you're a stupid fucking moron!

Best CS was still the one that gave knives and fixed gun-running.

I think that was the same version.

I buy from Steam. Great, I can play! Then my computer dies. I reinstall but there's a problem. I contact Steam Support. They say that they will have an answer for me within 24 hours. It's the wrong answer. ANother 24 hours. Wrong ANSWER AGAIN!! Another 24 hours.

What problem would happen reinstalling from Steam that wouldn't from a DVD?

That's like saying you'd have a problem reinstalling from DVD you wouldn't from CD. All you'd do with Steam is redownload it. I can't even fathom a problem here.



As for everything else you're just paranoid. I'm surprised you haven't made a flash animated website detailing how Valve blew up the pentagon with a missle financed by Steam user credit cards...

No, HL2 is not available, but you can pay your money now. As an incentive, Valve has made the full version of CS:Source available for those that do buy HL2 now.

Well I ordered and started preloading it, so I'll have it when if finally is available- hopefully soon.

So here's the deal...

I buy from Steam. Great, I can play! Then my computer dies. I reinstall but there's a problem. I contact Steam Support. They say that they will have an answer for me within 24 hours. It's the wrong answer. ANother 24 hours. Wrong ANSWER AGAIN!! Another 24 hours.

Other side, I buy from retail. I simply reinstall. Done.

----

I buy from steam. Great I can play. Well, now I'm done a couple years later & I want to sell the game. What do I sell? Is it tied to my email account? Who is going to buy nothing for something? It becomes a big hassle & I see boxed versions selling for 2-5 times as much as mine. I end up selling it on ebay $8.

_--------

Steam knows I purchased it with my credit card. I need help. enter your credit card number again. That's it, good now some spyware grabbed my CC#. Or Valve gets hacked and has 243,000 CC#s!!!! ACK!!!!! Suddenly I find out I purchased a copy of MS Flight Simulator 2005. GREAT! I hope that guy is having fun with my money.

Steam craps out and gets hacked. All the information is gone. Luckily they have backups. "Dear sir, we apologize for the inconvenience. We will send you a voucher to purchase the game in the store. It will be there in 2-4 weeks".

Had you had just a little bit of patience & purchased the game on CD, you could simply reinstall. Now we have to get our backups running & backup our backup'd backups and that will take upto a week depending on your steamID. Also Gabe had a baby boy, he named it chunk-o-lard, and is much thinner having lost the 80 pounds, but is still tipping the scales at 345. Thanks! Have a good day."


GREAT!

I'm waiting this one out. Have fun playing, but when it goes to shit some day... have fun waiting.

CS:S is as fun as you want it to be, if you go in expecting good old CS with upgraded EVERYTHING you will be satisfied 110%.

I only played it for four hours last night, so it can't be that addictive.
