Is this for EVERY spray? Or just from time to time?

Sometimes, the spray "runs out" of ink lol. But if its every time, then im not sure...all the video settings on full? Check the amount of Multiplayer Decal Limit (its in the advance options) and make sure thats relatively high. Mines 300.

Try changing the spray and see if that works.

P.S: Just my opinion, but I HATE it when people spray other people's bodies...its like your disrespecting that person. Sure it may be fun, but...meh, i just hate it. Spraying on the walls around the body is fine...but i just hate seeing people spray bodies :\

But, like i said, thats just my view :D

Yes it's for every spray and everytime. Also my Video Settings are set to:
Renderer - D3D
Resolution - 800x600
Display Mode - Normal
Color Quality - Highest
Max decal limit - 300

P.S. when i spray someone i could hear the spraying sound but i don't see the spray. Also i think that the other players could see my spray as well, all except me that is...  :\

Looked it up and saw this:

"mp_decals 200
and
decalfrequency 10"

^ try typing those into the console. If that doesnt work, then try changing your Renderer. Mines on OpenGL.

Oh just saw this as well:

"I have had the same exact problem as that. Its an issue with the decal.wad file and such. Just delete the local CS cache (delete the cstrike folder) and then reinstall it from steam. Your problem should be solved and be sure you are playin in OpenGL mode not DirectX (dx sometimes causes this error)."

Once again, Open GL is suggested. So try that. Dont reinstall yet though. Although if nothing works...then try reinstalling.

Btw, has this happened since the beginning? Or just recently?
