I can't run CS 1.6! LOL. I can run CS:S just fine, and other more demanding games, but when I try to run 1.6 the screen just flashes constantly and it says I'm getting 7 fps (I avg maybe 150 on source). I've tried running in compatability modes, but to no avail.

Running Win7 64 bit.

It sounds like you're facing an issue specifically with running Counter-Strike 1.6 on your Windows 7 64-bit system. Here are a few steps you can take to troubleshoot and potentially resolve this problem:

1. Compatibility Mode:
- Since you've already tried running in compatibility modes without success, let's explore other potential solutions.

2. Graphics Settings:
- Check the in-game graphics settings for CS 1.6. Make sure they are set to a level that your system can handle.

3. Driver Updates:
- Ensure that your graphics card drivers are up to date. Sometimes outdated drivers can cause compatibility issues.
- Visit the AMD website to download the latest drivers for your ATI Radeon HD 4760.

4. DirectX Version:
- Make sure you have the correct version of DirectX installed on your system. CS 1.6 might require an older version of DirectX.

5. Launch Options:
- Try setting launch options for CS 1.6. Right-click on the game in your Steam library, go to Properties, and set launch options such as "-dxlevel 90" or "-gl" which may help with compatibility.

6. Video Configurations:
- CS 1.6 has specific video configurations that might need adjustment for better performance. Look into optimizing the video settings within the game or through the launch options.

7. Game Cache Validation:
- Verify the integrity of the game files through Steam. This can help ensure that all necessary files are present and correct.

8. System Requirements:
- Although CS 1.6 is an older game, double-check that your system meets the minimum requirements for the game.

Given that you have no issues running more demanding games like CS:S, there might be some compatibility or optimization tweaks needed for CS 1.6 specifically. Try these steps and see if any of them help improve the performance of CS 1.6 on your system. Let me know if you need further assistance or if you encounter any specific errors during these steps.
