Hey guys,

I'm wondering if any of y'all on the forum play CS Source in Bootcamp. My friends are huge fans and I'm thinking about getting a copy, but due to my bad experiences of trying to play C&C First Decade online (it tells me I'm not connected to the internet, when I am!) I'm slightly apprehensive about playing a game that's solely online.

Anyone have any experiences of playing CS on a SR MBP?

Thanks :)

Runs at 100fps and no lag (I'm on DSL). What else do you need to know? An 8 year old game on a new laptop, I don't see what the problem could be. If your afraid of network issues, use an ethernet cable? Internet in Bootcamp seem pretty stable to me.

Yes, no issues at all - I'd love the creators to make a universal version though like a number of top games nowadays. I hate having to log out of OSX and booting into Windows - makes me feel a queesy and plurrr. Come on Steam and Valve etc.

That would be sweet if Valve made their games compatible with Mac but that will never happen...along time ago they almost made a Half-Life port for Mac but then it got cancelled

The main reason I'm worried is cause Red Alert 2 fags me around no end by refusing to connect to the internet, then again Generals works, so it can't be that bad. :)

I may well be joining the CS fraternity some time soon the! :D
