Frequently Asked Questions[]

Evolutionist conditions[]

Too many hackers in-game[]

Q: Why are there so many hackers in the game?

Glitcher and Bugger report[]

Q: Can I report a player who exploits glitches/ bugs?

A: You can send a ticket to the Support Center of the CSO website. You will need pictorial evidence in order to report so as to speed up the banning. Alternatively, there's a Report function in-game which allows you to report any misbehaving players.

Zombie Scenario mp_fadetoblack on[]

Q: No idea why there is "mp_fadetoblack" enabled in Zombie Scenario. Is it a hack?

Lagging in Blaze[]

Q: How do we fix the lag in Blaze?

A: There could be possibilities. For now, we are stating the reason of the lag. In Blaze, the players are standing on "Func_train" entity which is not fully supported in multiplayer Half-Life mods. This can be evident by "Sven Co-op" maps which consists of similar entities.

About G.O.M (God Of Mission)[]

Q: Does G.O.M exist ?

Zombie-related medal confusion[]

Q: If I check my barracks, my zombie hunts is 1164. But, if I check in honor mission it says 910. How is that possible? Also, can it also happen to master of survival?

A: Do note it starts to count if there are 4 players in the room. Barracks will list your total kill, and the honour will list your kill when you play when at least 4 players are in the room. In the Q's case, he killed 254 zombies when there's lack of 4 players in the room. Same goes for Master of Survival.

Question about latency players[]

Q: What is the difference between low ping players and high ping players?

Dm gallery 20121125 0802320

A: It shows how fast your internet router can transfer your client data to the server. The lower the latency shows, the faster the transfer speed is. If someone is having a high latency, there is a high chance you will see the person lagging, like speedhacking.

If you find all players having unusual latency like the pic shown, it can be considered the Room Master is the one who lags. However, this is only due to internet problems or low memory size.

Q2: What about 3rd-party countries? Like US, Brazil, France, etc..... do they lag due to distance lag?

A: Yes, they do. The main server is hosted far away from their locations, for the host's server to create a game, their server has to be connected to the publisher's server.

Q3: Sometimes , i see some players having a stable ping, but later, their ping rises up and down quickly.

Let's say, player X has 40 latency, then it went up 90, followed by 215, then went down about 185.

Is this because of spiking lag or force lagging?

A: This can be caused by the unstable computer or internet connection you have. Closing up unnecessary programs on your computer might solve this problem.

About Top 100 title[]

Q: Once I get [Top 100] medal, do I get to keep it permanently?

A: No, the medal will disappear once you're off the list.

Spoil points in HMS.[]

Q: Sometimes when i play HMS , i just see this , [You have obtained [Spoils] [Number] point(s).] . I dont know what is this. Explain?

A: You have obtained that much of points. This 'spoils' works the same as the box that zombies drop in Zombie Scenario. The only difference from that one is you can get it without having to reach it.

Network Error[]

Q: When I enter the a room, a message will pop:

Due to network problem.... please lookup the offical website>supports>FAQ/Error>Network Problem to see how to resolve this problem. What can i do? How do i do it?

A: You must edit your settings in your internet modem / router. Open up your 8000 - 10000 and 40100 - 43400 ports.

Softer Movement in OpenGL[]

Q: I just want to ask, why in OpenGL our movement is softer than in D3D ?

A: It depends on the computer specifications, specifically on the video cards. Sometimes, a computer can do very well on D3D, but not on OpenGL. Same goes for the opposite.

Another possibility is that you have not updated your graphics driver to the latest version or installed a newer version of DirectX. Direct 3D is also part of DirectX which is designed by Microsoft Corporation. DirectX 9.0C is required to run Counter-Strike Online.
