hmm evidently valve sent out an email to the whole beta team about this, but i guess i was left out :p might have somthing to do with me not downloading/playing rev3 :p
oh well. since the beta is gone public i guess i can tell everyone where to download it and such :)
Valve Beta Enrollment Setup
Enrollment Key Generator
Note: they way they have this set up is like morpheus. its set up like a p2p for downloading the beta, its downloaded from people who already have it and are in game. so this ISNT for dialup users because your download will be killed if the person leaves the game.
also note that this wont be the way the new cs will be distrubited, when the finial version is out you will download it normally

Enjoy :)

Edit: broken link fixed, plus i found out you have to download the game EVERY time you want to play the 1.4 beta, so this IS NOT for dialup people ONLY broadband.

No, you gotta download the game everytime you play. so when you exit it you gotta redownload it to play again. thats why its only for broadband users.

well register for an account and when it prompt u for the account ID use the one from the generator... and vola..

U really gotta try out this beta guys, the feel is totally different from 1.3 as theres no more jumping around and the world view and team maps are totally different :burn:

As for the DLing everytime thing, actually its really only the very first time u try connecting to a server. The next time it'll load much quicker as the info is basically saved on ur HD. :D

yeah, i hate cs lol but like 2 months ago i get an email from valve saying i was approved for beta testing :) supposedly i applied to be a valve beta tester back in june.
1.4 is actually somewhat fun now, no more trying to shoot people who are constantly jumping and now theres no lame headshots from 100 miles away with the awp, lol
and supposedly valves anti cheat stuff works, they even supplied us with the popular cheats to try and use them and they dont work. but ill give it 2 weeks of cheater free play before someone hacks past it :p

LAMER AND LAMER

I jumped into CS at the peak. I started playing over 2 years ago at beta 5.0 and since then CS has become a joke.
I dont play too much anymore due to all the stupid newbs who if anyone gets a kill ratio of 3:1 or more call everyone a cheater. People who cheat are just jerks, CS is/WAS a game of skill up until around 7.whatever.
When I started playing, if you updated for only CS servers, the max listed was around 500, now there are 5000 or so just of THE WAY OVERPLAYED DE_DUST.

Over all, if you want out of this cheater filled game and back to the real way, www.langames.net has servers that run b5.2 and other older, not lame versions of CS. I will admit, I suck at the older version now, because its just way faster and takes a while to get used to.

If I were to change one thing in CS, it would be to make CS come with manditory cheat protection with weekly automatic updates, rather than the stupid/inifective plugins.

THE BOTTOM LINE IS, the only major good things changed since B5.2 were new guns, maps and the new net code.
Anyone remember the old net code?
Anyone who says ping matters now is a moron, as long as your ping is below ~300ms dont whine. In the old netcode, it was all about your ping.


Now, CS is hardly even a Mod, IT HAS A RETAIL PACKAGE ! ! !

yea the beta has some major bugs that need to be fixed... tho the game play is pretty sweeet!! Especially love the new map views, ie picture in picture, world view :D

Tho the jumping lag is kinda annoying, but i guess its alil more realistic... :burn:

Note:
Valve has anti-cheat software built into halflife now, and they are shooting for perodic updates. not once a month more like once every 2 DAYS. but lets just see if they make good on their promises, if they do then we might finally have cheat free play :)
