Link to website: [url]http://www.counter-strike.net/[/url] Their Twitter: [url]https://twitter.com/#!/csgo_dev[/url] Talk about cs:go beta here! [release] [b]F.A.Q[/b] CS:GO Facts [B]Q) How can I get into the beta?[/B] A) The beta is currently closed. The current stress test is to test for crashes with various hardware configurations and how the servers handle the stress. The best way to get into the beta is to be active in the current Counter-Strike communities. [B]Q)How do I activate the console?[/B] A) Activate the console in Help & Options -> Game Settings -> Enable developer console. This will then allow you to open the console using the tilde key ~. [B]Q)How do I open the server browser?[/B] A) The current version of the beta does not support a server browser. This feature will be added later. [B]Q) Can I host my own dedicated server?[/B] A) Not at this stage in the beta. The full version of CSGO will allow community run dedicated servers on both Windows and Linux. [B]Q) How do I start a local game?[/B] A) Click Play -> Create Match -> Choose your map and game mode. To have other players connect to you they will need to know your IP address and use that to connect in the console with “connect youripaddress”. The full game will have a server browser that will let you easily start local games. [B]Q)Can I make maps for CSGO?[/B] A) Yes, there will be a new SDK available after the full game has been released. During the beta you can start laying out your map ideas with the current Counter-Strike: Source SDK. [B]Q) How do I report a bug in the beta?[/B] A) Please use our steam forums for now. [B]Q) How do I play competitively?[/B] A) To start with, we only support lan competitive play. Matchmaking into competitive play will be enabled later in the beta. [B]Q) Why does my crosshair change size?[/B] A) The crosshair consists of multiple parts. The most obvious section is the dot in the middle which is used for aiming. The traditional cross hatch moves as you move and provides rough accuracy. The brackets represent the weapon accuracy at all times including being stationary and firing. [B]Q) Why can I sometimes defuse the bomb faster than other times?[/B] A) On the counter-terrorist side if you are carrying a defuse kit it will halve the defuse time. The defuse kit appears as a small pair of needle nose pliers in the lower right corner of your in-game UI. [B]Q)What are the minimum and/or suggested system specs?[/B] A) While we are still developing the game these are in flux. The early stages of the beta will help us better set those suggestions. [B]Q) Why aren’t the characters solid?[/B] A) In Casual mode players can pass through each other as their bodies are not solid. In Competitive mode the player’s bodies are solid and they cannot pass through each other. This also allows for player stacking in competitive mode. [B]Q) Will there be more weapons?[/B] A) Yes, the current version of the beta has a limited selection of the weapons. [B]Q) Will there be more character models?[/B] A) Yes, the current version of the beta has a limited number of character models. [B]Q) Will there be more modes?[/B] A) Yes. We are currently only showing one [B]Q) When will the game ship?[/B] A) You tell us. We are committed to staying in the beta period for as long as we need to create the best version of Counter-Strike. [B]Q) Will there be team match making?[/B] A) Yes. We will be adding this feature later. [B]Q) Will there be a replay system?[/B] A) Yes, we will be implementing this feature at a later date. [B]Q) What tools will there be for spectating?[/B] A) The current version the beta has very limited tools for spectating a match. We will be improving those tools and features during the beta. [B]Q) How will CS:GO be available?[/B] A) CS:GO will be available in download form from Steam, PSN, and XBLA. The beta is only available for PC players on Steam. [B]Q)How can I see my ping?[/B] A) We will be adding a visual representation of ping later but for now if you go into the console and enter net_graph 1 and see your ping and FPS statistics. [B]Q)Are there any plans to open up games to more than 5v5?[/B] A) Yes but the beta will continue to be 5v5 for a period. [B]Q)Will the text be localized?[/B] A) Text localization will be updated as the beta progresses. [B]Q) Is the beta available on the Mac?[/B] A) Currently the beta is PC only but we will have full Mac support at launch. [/release] IMAGE!

If anyone's in the beta on Facepunch, could they post streams/pics please?
oh btw OP (me) I am also in beta.
Splitscreen is apparently confirmed (for consoles at least).
[quote]The best way to get into the beta is to be active in the current Counter-Strike communities[/quote] [img]http://filesmelt.com/dl/rer.jpg[/img] All 138,000,000?
Another Valve beta I'm not getting into :(
Okay is it just me or is the way the bullets recoil in this really weird? With any automatic gun, if I duck down and just fire in a constant stream, all the bullets seem to go in a straight line above and a bit to the right of the crosshair. It just doesn't feel very random any more.
Despite all the negativity mainly from 1.6 fanboys, Im looking forward to this.

[QUOTE=Dubious George;33519346]What new weapons are there? I'm curious.[/QUOTE] Pretty sure the beta has a limited set of weapons.
[QUOTE=Spazzo965;33519353]Pretty sure the beta has a limited set of weapons.[/QUOTE] Damn.
I'm sorry, it seems it's not just one map. I will take some screenshots of other maps and all of the weapons. edit: It has Dust and Dust 2
[QUOTE=Dubious George;33519346]What new weapons are there? I'm curious.[/QUOTE] At least one new SMG, various weapons have been replaced by modern equivalents, the taser, and new grenades [editline]1st December 2011[/editline] [QUOTE=Olegr;33519361]I'm sorry, it seems it's not just one map.

There's not a lot of new stuff in the beta except one sniper that wasn't in before, but I think it's supposed to be like the scout anyway. I like how it blurs up when you run while scoped in. Going to start uploading loads of pictures on my Steam, so go view my screenshots. I mainly just screenshotted all the weapon stats, what the fire bomb looks like, what it's like running while scoped in and also the recoil of the AK47.

Re-post for new thread. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dXMu2bP-reM[/media] Also on a similar topic to the video, is it just me (it probably is) but is it easier to get kills by just randomly shooting now. I don't remember spraying being so damn effective in CSS.
some screenshots from dust 2 and all weapons available in beta: [img]http://i.imgur.com/C4ij9h.jpg[/img] [img]http://i.imgur.com/UoQEhh.jpg[/img] [img]http://i.imgur.com/fZyU8h.jpg[/img] [img]http://i.imgur.com/33tohh.jpg[/img] [img]http://i.imgur.com/u78uUh.jpg[/img] [img]http://i.imgur.com/gkvt1h.jpg[/img] [img]http://i.imgur.com/YhcJnh.jpg[/img] [img]http://i.imgur.com/vbuuah.jpg[/img] [img]http://i.imgur.com/yLpGhh.jpg[/img] [img]http://i.imgur.com/hV5Ulh.jpg[/img] [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/f6Aor.jpg[/IMG]
My public media thus far. I have more planned but it's late (6AM) and I need sleep. Two videos. First is dust, second is dust 2. Random shots. I have more shots that I haven't uploaded anywhere but you probably have the idea by now. All images are clickable for 1920x1080. (Edit: Also, I don't talk through the entirety of either video. There is a lot of footage in the later parts where it's just gameplay and all game sounds.)

This game's style really feels like CS and L4D combined. Doesn't quite go one way or another, but it definitely plays off of L4D's shading system and weapon style. Plus, the helicopter sound. For me, it's a welcoming thing :v:

I keep getting killed because I suck at my bullets keep going over everyones heads :( I'm too ashamed to make some gameplay footage.
I still think the guns have that ugly L4D "cartoonish" look to them.

[QUOTE=Mech Bgum;33520184]i just have found the names of some csgo maps[/QUOTE] I really wish they could put CS_747, It's not popular but it's a classic
Damnit I just recorded a load of gameplay and for some reason all the files are corrupt. I got a few knife kills as well. I've only really just realised, but the game does feel a lot like L4D2.
Did they say if there would be an open beta later on?
Well I think Chet said that the beta was going to keep on growing so eventually it probably would be an open beta, or it would just be very easy to sign up and get in.
I paid for Tribes: Ascend now because it allowed me into the beta to start playing. I'd pay CS: Go's price now to be able to play it, regardless of its beta status.
i dont like the walking animations on the guns. it just looks like lazy animators
