    I've got the original Half life game, and if i remember correctly, i could use that CD key to download and play CS. Can i now also use the same key for CS:S? It's been over a year since i last played CS.

    CS:S is a different game to CS 1.6, so the 1.6 key will only activate your copy of 1.6 mate :)

    Hmm tempting... is there an OCUK server that everyone plays on? As in mainly inhabited by OCUK forumers, not a server hosted by OCUK (as if)

    people tend to be ALOT better at CS 1.6 since its been out for years ! so if ** hard ware is up to it... play css. as it can look beautiful !
    Very VERY adictive though !

    i think css is only 9.97 direct from steam last time a checked

    If you are good in CS 1.6 then you are going to kick ass in Source. I jumped straight from 1.5 to CSS and got kicked couple of times accused for cheating, altho I didnt.

    Yeah, there is something easier about Source but I am not sure what...

    It took me weeks before I could consistently get kills in games on CS 1.6 but within 1-2 sessions of Source I wasn't looking out of place in servers.

    CS1.6 was about the worst implementation of CS to date, CSS was a vast improvement, the best version to date (IMO) was cs 1.3 (I think it was :eek: been a while now).
