Valve, the developer of the first-person shooter game Counter-Strike 2, is advising players not to use AMD Software’s “Anti-Lag+” feature. The recent update of AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition, released on October 1, included support for the “Anti-Lag+” feature in Counter-Strike 2. This feature is meant to improve click responsiveness in games.
According to a post on the official Counter-Strike 2 X account, enabling “Anti-Lag+” in the game will result in a ban from VAC (Valve Anti-Cheat System). The explanation provided is that enabling the feature would modify the game code. However, AMD’s website describes “Anti-Lag+” as a feature that improves frame synchronization by applying frame alignment within the game code itself.
Valve has announced that affected users will have their bans lifted once AMD releases an update to remedy the situation. While VAC bans are typically considered permanent and non-negotiable, Valve has stated that if a ban is determined to be issued mistakenly, it will be automatically revoked. The X post mentioned that once AMD delivers the update, the affected users will be identified and their bans will be lifted.
Counter-Strike 2 is a free-to-play game available for Windows and Linux users on the Steam platform.
1. VAC: Valve Anti-Cheat System, a system developed by Valve to detect and prevent cheating in their games.
2. FPS: First-person shooter, a genre of video games where the player experiences the game from the perspective of the main character.
