Graphics issues with CS:source

Postby Tramp Magic on Sat Jul 16, 2005 1:47 am

Ok, i am running a laptop with a geforce FX go5200. this is a laptop made card, but cos nvidia are really top blokes, all the new driver updates dont support my card at all, i cant even install them cos the drivers do not even recognize my card as compatible hardware.

im really in a stitch people cos when i open source its cant animate muzzle flash and wireframe boxes randomly place anyware on the screen. i think its a driver issue,

i tried looking for a solution online about my incapability issue and had a few promiseing leads and followed there advise, alas all my hard work didnt pay off. heres a link to what advice was available on teh web:

http://fredfred.net/skriker/index.php/geforce-fx-go5200-with-latest-forceware-drivers

cs:source used to work cos i had a older nvidia driver, but they update them alot with the new wave of demanding games (battlefield 2, w.o.w etc) so i think they just forgot about my card :Z

Any help would be aprecated!

Just choose which driver you had and re-install, should work.

Have a read here first.

check this site out http://www.laptopvideo2go.com/ as they add lappy support to standered nivdia drivers as there is no support from nivdia on the lappy grahpics

Edit....

Delete the map from your game directory, next time it comes on you will reload.

Just realised what that is, its the muzzle flash and not the map. :oops:

Will add here the file name for that when I find it, unless someone else beets me to it.
