My friend recently bought Counter strike source and we wanted to play with each other but we've not been able to connect. I've searched all over steam and the internet for an answer but I still haven't found a solution.
Basically whenever we try to join one another's game, it says 'Server is not responding'
It doesn't even say that he's in a game when I click on find server and then the 'Friends' tab.
He's on a mac and i'm on windows, would that have anything to do with it? Anyone have any ideas?

Hi and welcome to TSF!

Have either of you done port forwarding in the router to open ports? The computer hosting the server will need to open ports for the server to be visible.

If you mean playing on a LAN network, go to the LAN tab and see if the game is listed... Also allow your firewalls to let CS:S access the internet and pause your antiviruses

Misleading Game Reviews:angry:Maybe users who having played the game can help better.
:angry: Honestly, I bought fifa14 when it came out on PC after reading reviews from Metacritic, IGN and PC gamer and so on, disregarded the user negative reviews tauting them uneducated…boy was I wrong. My experience of the game was far from awful, it was horrid and nightmarish. I remember me...

Internet Explorer Loads & Uses Tons of Memory
Internet Explorer runs on it's own--in the background--and uses tons of memory. This is similar to a problem that a user named MalusCalibur had back in 2008. IE loads up and runs from 30K and climbs to anywhere from 100-300K of Memory. I've quelled this problem by constantly having Windows...
