    What's the difference between the CS you can buy in the store and the version you can download for free off the net?

    So I assume that you recommend the free version?

    Please let me know.

    Otherwise, I will stop by Best Buy and pick up the retail version, which is on sale for $19.99.

    I have the retail version. I downloaded the extra maps and AA gave me the gun names, so it's the same. I don't have half life so I needed it.

    Are you saying that CS is only a good online playing experience if you have a cable modem?

    Or are your referring to the download time for getting the free version off the net?

    Make sure you get the Game of the Year Edition of Half-Life, and not the new Platinum edition, because the later comes bundled with the stupid retail version of CS.

    Here's the [link=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00001KUII/o/qid=991240577/sr=8-1/ref=aps_sr_vg_1_1/107-3866122-3498164]URL[/link] to the box that you need to look for.

    Yes he does get a piece of it, as Jess Cliffe told me on ICQ:

    [blockquote]just buy HL : CS when it comes out. don't send us money.[/blockquote]

    Can someone (maybe AA?) give me a black & white answer to whether I should buy the retail version or download the free version?

    I'm having trouble reading between the lines today.

    Also, I have HL-Game of the Year edition already.

    Muchas gracias!

    If you already have Half-Life, download the free version. Lamers only use the retail version. :)

    I guess that makes me a Lamer then, huh? Only reason I bought the retail is because after attemting to d/l it 3 times, I got a corrupted file message every time. Not to mention that it takes a looong time to d/l on 56k.

    But as I said before, who needs CS when you have DoD?!?!?!

    I prefer Multi CTF for UT myself, some of those maps are just plain crazy. And I can't wait until the SAS mod comes out

    I LOVE H-L & C-S!

    I'm a novice though :(

    How do you start a server & what do you need?
