I have been playing Counter-Strike for about 2 1/2 years, and I have never gotten better. I go on servers and no matter what I am always the one losing.

Is there anything I could do to play better?

Yea, stop playing. ;)

Just learn where people go, try to consistently aim for the head, choose appropriate weapons, stuff like that.

Also, play it a a resolution that your system can handle - don't play at 1600x1200 if you only get like 5 fps.

fps stands for frames per second - it's how many frames get displayed on the screen in that second. Lower resolutions generally get higher FPS, but look worse, while high resolutions loof great, but get worse FPS. A good FPS range for CS is anywhere between 30 and 100 (100 is the max).

Oh, and you can see your FPS by bringing down the console (~ key), and entering 'net_graph 1', net_graph 2', or net_graph 3'. Each does basically the same thing, but just outputs it differently. I prefer 3 myelf.

True, but if it gets down to a really low number, then that will make you a worse player, as you get less reaction time. As long as the fps stays high, there's not much you can do, but if it gets low, then you will be 'lagging' somewhat while other players can kill you.

i know the FPS wont make me better. McTimson said 30-100 is a good FPS, so I figured 60 was ok.

according to a website I've read... the AVERAGE SAFE FPS level is "45"... u need at least 45 FPS "on average" to have a steady game play... if you keep dropping then that means u will lag alot in terms of graphics and your computer just can't handle it

well my computer is a brand new HP and it seems to hold an FPS of 60 at all times, so it is fine.

I suggest joining a "l33t" server, as they are called. Playing against really good players improves your skills the fastest i think.
