1.5 Advanced Customizing
Common Quick Buy Binds
This script below is a little more complicated how it works so I will explain a little about it, the other ones are pretty much self explanatory. This script below will buy an M4a1 or Ak47 by pressing a key, or a Aug or Sig by pressing a different key. It will also buy ammo depending on the team your on, If you have enough funds it also buys armor + helmet.
Example: If you are a CT and you press "F3" it will buy an M4a1, ammo, and armor. But if you are a Terrorist it will buy an Ak47, ammo, and armor by pressing the same key as well.
The same applies with the Sig and Aug, press "F4" and it will buy a Sig, ammo, and armor if you are a Terrorist. If you are a CT it will buy an Aug, ammo, and armor instead.
// buy rifle + Ammo + armor //
Rates are the most important this to consider in counter-strike. You mainly have 3 variables, cl_updaterate cl_cmdrate and rate.
cl_updaterate is the packets per second that you send to a server. The higher the value, the best. People say using rates of 50 is fine. I don't think so. Unless you have a 56k modem, put this value: cl_updaterate 101.
cl_cmdrate should be set to the AVERAGE number of FPS you obtain while you play.
rate should be set to 25000 if you have 1mbit + connection.
Consider lowering the rates if you have a slow connection ( 56k~256k ).
First of all, make sure you are playing on Open_gl, i recommend a resolution of 800x600.
FPS is the Frames Per Second. Since counter-strike is based on a FPS system, I will spend some time on it.
You can view your FPS by typing net_graph 3 on the console.
Why do I have 60 fps and I know I have a really good video card ?
The answer to this question is because you probably have the V-Sync on. The V-sync basically limits your FPS to the frequency of your screen ( in hz ). Having it enabled, your FPS will be limited by that frequency. You have two choices. Either you Unable it, either you find a program that will set your hz to a superior value ( For Nvidia cards i recommend ReForce. Powerstrip for ATI cards. ).
Why are my fps 72 ?
Type fps_max 100 in the console.
If you want to tweak your graphic card in order to obtain higher FPS, use any search engine, you will find accurate results.
Thats all for the advanced customizing of counter-strike. I know that there are many variables that will affect your gaming experience, but this is a MUST.

NOTE: Whenever installing or editing scripts it is recommended that you backup all your files incase of a mishap.
The newest version of Counter-Strike has two buy scripts built into the game:
Rebuy: A script that will automatically buy the last items you purchased the pervious round, you can also use this to restock grenades and ammo if you did not die the previous round. To use this script just simple type "rebuy" in consol (without quotes) or bind a key to rebuy (bind
Autobuy: Another script built into the game is Autobuy. Similar to Rebuy this script buys items and weapons with the hit of a button. Like rebuy this script relies on a list of weapons in a .txt file (Autobuy.txt). The system begins with the first alias in the list, and attempts to purchase it. If a primary weapon is successfully purchased, all later primary weapon aliases are skipped. Similarly, secondary weapon buy alias are skipped once a secondary weapon has been purchased. This script can be useful if customized but may not be useful for the experienced Counter-Strike player, who may prefer specific weapon combinations in different situations. The script can be edited in the same manner as the Rebuy script by opening the autobuy.txt file in
C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\< your e-mail >\counter-strike\cstrike.
