View Full Version : CS:S/HL2 Graphics Quality Problem

06-07-2005, 23:39
Right. I just finished Half-Life 2 the other day. Pretty fun, but at times I found it laggy - especially in the parts with lots of NPCs, like the boat chase or the many Combine dudes in the Citadel. Driving on the beach with all the Antlions wasn't too thrilling either. Whenever I tried to lower the quality of the graphics, the game would crash on me, telling me it could not find file 3xfkzoes8432 or something. I know it begins with a '3'. ;)

Now that I'm done Half-Life 2 for the moment (I guess I could try again on Med/Hard), I want to try Counter-Strike: Source. But whenever I play, I have a ping of 400 or so. So I try to lower the graphics quality but the game crashes with the same error. Sometimes I have to manually restart my computer because the system gets all messed up.

Has anyone had this problem? How can it be solved?
Please don't tell me I have to re-install...

Thanks for your help!
