I just bought CS today on steam and I noticed that I can't click or use the space bar to progress the dialogue. I can only progress by turning on auto mode which is frustrating.
Also, when does the patch come out that offers an option to turn off the grainy effects?
I wouldn't mind it if it didn't hurt my eyes and make it almost impossible to see what i'm looking at.
I'm sorry you're having these issues. That certainly shouldn't be happening, and I suspect something has gone wrong with your Steam download. Try verifying the integrity of the files, or uninstalling then reinstalling. All versions of the game enable progress by space bar and click, and the patch for turning off grainy effects is already released. It is in advanced options at the bottom.
