From CS-Nation:

Erik Johnson from Valve has a few tidbits that all CS/HL players should know:
- If you have an ATI video card, you must run in D3D for the time being. This is a bug that is being worked on.


I'm willing to bet nVidia is behind this! WTF? How much did you pay Valve, nVidia?

My Radeon runs CS 1.1 beautifully! I run it at 1024x768 with 4x FSAA in OpenGL!

I'm sure it isn't an nVidia conspiracy ;)

Maybe there is a minor driver problem, i'm sure it will be fixed pretty quickly

I just played some. I like the new maps a lot. I like the chat feature, although it causes lag. D3D isn't as bad as I thought, but it's not OpenGL! I reduced my playing resolution from 1024x768 with FSAA to 800x600 with FSAA. I hope Valve gets that patch out soon.
