Counter Strike:GO on MBA ... anyone?
It seems promising but seems more sloppy and natural than the old cs games, which I still enjoy. It's a different type and feels more casual. The saturation is ridiculous. They're following the over process to hell trend, and as a result the colors are washed out. Looks like a constant hi pass filter.Is the game just worth it in general? I really liked the old Counter Strike. I have a 2012 13" 1.8 Ghz i5, 4 GB Ram, 128 GB SSD.
It does on the 2012 which is much faster than the 2011 graphically.I'm on the fence, can someone post real numbers? One guy said 50-60 fps on high and native res but I am a bit skeptical because my 2011 sandy bridge 13" can barely do 30fps at those settings.
you want osx or windows numbers? they are both pretty bad, although windows might be a little faster.wait nobody tried it on 2011 MBA 1.7 GHz Intel Core i5 with 4GB????
Thanks for the followup. Did you try it in windows? I'm not ready to jump on the retina wagon just yet but I'm also not looking forward to another year of crappy graphics.It does on the 2012 which is much faster than the 2011 graphically.
I used net_graph 1 in console to view, although I did no extensive analysis. Perhaps the areas or maps I tend to check it on are less demanding.
Thanks .. i just want to play CS GO... Why on windows is better than on mac os?Works great on 2011 MBA 13'' i5 4GB bootcamp at 1440x900 resolution and High/Med settings (default).
It is playable on Mountain Lion, but the difference on Win 7 is +100%. I suggest installing bootcamp if you are going to play any games at all.
It will run medium at least (which is still more detailed than the 360 version). Not to mention, Xbox is only 5v5 and steam version can be customised to 12v12.So whats the verdict on the 2012 Air? I know its definitely running but I'm thinking of just buying it for my xBox. Can someone post the FPS on all settings maximum and native resolution? Oh yeah, my HD 4000 has less VRAM because I have 4GB RAM.
It will still be much better than the Xbox. Mods will make the PC version much much better anyway.So whats the verdict on the 2012 Air?

everyone is bad when they first start. watch the good players and learn how to shoot.I just want to add that CS:GO runs wonderfully on my 2012 base 13" MBA.
However, I'm REALLY bad at it. REALLY bad. I keep switching guns hoping I'll get better... I feel like I should have saved $15 and stuck with TF2. I've only played rescue the hostages or whatever though, thinking it would be like CTF, and I might just need a better map than italy/office. I'll try more later
