Counter strike is, undoubtedly the most famous multiplayer game among college students all over India. Each college/ school fest that has a gaming jamboree in its chronology will without doubt have this game as a major event. What makes this game even more challenging is the sheer number of clans that fight it out among themselves day in and day out with such seriousness to become the champion clan In this post here, we let out a few secret tweaks that may help taking your game to the next level.
Keep Your System Running Smooth
Something very important that most of us forget is that at the end of the day because of our sheer passion for the game is that this is nothing but a software application that is running and executing the commands that you put in. So quite obviously the better your system runs and the more smoothly it can handle those requests, the faster and more accurately it runs.
Start by cleaning your system caches and clean the junk files off your system. Use a system cleaning software like C Cleaner for the most effective and quick results. Also use a registry cleaning software and finally a Defraggler to free some space and make your system smoother. Also, make it a point that no background software’s are running on your system while you play the game.Go to Start, run. Type MSConfig, click OK. Click ‘Startup’, click enable all tab. Click Services tab, check the option to Hide all Microsoft Services. Click ‘Disable all’, apply, close and restart your system.
Use Commands to Control your Mouse Movement
No matter whatever your play style is, whether you are an assaulter who is always on the move or if you are a mag-er who likes to camp and pick his targets accurately and go for that clean headshot, it is very important to keep your mouse under your control. Gaming is all about hand-eye coordination and here’s how to keep that to optimum.
Go to the Counterstrike 1.6 icon from which you run the game, right click it, go to properties and type in these commands in the ‘target’ space under the ’shortcut’ tab – “C:\Program Files (x86)\Counter-Strike 1.6\cstrike.exe” -noforcemaccel -noforcemparms -noforcemspd -frequency120-32bppYou will definitely experience the positive difference it will bring to your game.
Start using a Gaming Mouse and a Gaming Mouse Pad
– Tweak them according to your Settings
There are people who will disagree with me at this point. Yes, I have seen players, pro players gun down opposition that was using some heavy duty gears; with a regular DPI optical mouse and a piece of paper for the mouse pad. But then again, they are talented and have put in years of practice in that. If you lack one or both of them and still want to attain a pro level, what do you do? You spend on good gears. Using a good headphone can help you hear the steppings of the opposition from a distance and gauge the exact direction from which they are coming. But according to me, this is strictly optional. But if you get a gaming mouse and a mouse pad for it, it will help you. DPI is distance per inches and it roughly means the amount of cursor that moves on the screen for the movement of your hand. Ideally your mouse should have a DPI higher than 1800 for you to feel the difference. Also, you need to tweak the sensitivity of the mouse from the driver software of your mouse and keep it on “0” or “1”. In the game. Though this is completely a personal choice, Majority of the gamers find the best result with these settings.
And try to keep this fact in mind- you bought a gaming mouse, not a magic wand. You cannot start taking Aces from the first match; rather initially it will feel a bit odd. Practice sincerely for a couple of weeks with your new gear and start seeing the results. Also, it is not necessary that the most expensive mouse will suit you the best. Buy a mouse which feels good on your palm, you get a good grip and the weight should feel correct. We can write a different article altogether on selecting the right mouse. But for starters, these tips should do the trick.
Use a good CFG that suits your Style
CFGs are configuration files. NO, they are not cheats as some self-proclaimed know-it-all of the game will tell you. And they are even allowed in international competitions and elsewhere. You can find CFGs of your favorite player on their websites / Facebook pages. Certain commands are certainly banned and you cannot hide them in CFGs and the moment you execute them, a verified server will kick you. So choose a clean, nice CFG that suits your style. Try a few of them and then create one of your own!
That is the best way to take command of your game.These tips should help you improve your game, take it to the next level and shoot some FIRE IN THE HOLE!
