[title]SETTING UP CZ & CS1.6 Server[/title]
Just so you know the software isn't Illegal ...Why else would Steam place it available for download? [subtitle]ReQuirements[/subtitle] 1.[b]HLDS Update Tool[/b] Easy to get for free use this link : http://store.steampowered.com/about/ Watch first screenshot what to download.I'm gonna show you how to use the Windows Update tool. 2.[b]GCFScape[/b] For Free : http://nemesis.thewavelength.net/files/files/gcfscape131.exe 3.[b]DiskSpace[/b] Atleast 360MB Diskspace If you install CZ or Cs1.6 ONLY If you wanna use both of them Min. 750MB Diskspace .
[subtitle]STEP 1 [/subtitle] Open [b]HLDS Update Tool[/b] press Next>I agree>And choose your destination folder Best choice would be C://HLSERVER . Then you resume with pressing Next>Next> He'll copy some stuff just let him do that.Once it's ready It opens "ReGion" There you pick the Region you live .Then you just keep pressing next till it closes.
Screenshot included >>>>>>
[subtitle]STEP 2 [/subtitle] Now we'll open a Terminal This by pressing the Start Button > Run > Cmd doesn't work ? just make sure u find the program with the same symbol shown in the screenie... This will open a little black window . Like shown in Screenshot 3 In here you type : cd \HLSERVER or whatever you called ur destination folder press ENTER.
[subtitle]STEP 3 [/subtitle] Once we got the terminal set up you type => HldsUpdateTool -command update -game cstrike -dir c:\hlserver
[b]NOW IT'S INSTALLING NEEDED FILES FOR CS1.6 But ... We still need the files for a CZ Server [/b]
[subtitle]STEP 4 [/subtitle] I suppose you installed GCFScape... So we open GCFSpace // Search your map : steamapps Inside of there you seek "Condition Zero" double-click it . Now you see the stuff shown in screenshot 4. Select them > right mouse-click and choose Extract A new window pops-up .
[subtitle]STEP 5 [/subtitle] Browse for your map where you've got your files installed : C://HLServer and Extract the files in there. This process doesn't take much time and you've got all of your files installed already!!
[subtitle]WHAT ABOUT LESS LAGG?? :) [/subtitle] 1.Just get inside of your map : C:\HLSERVER And you'll see the file : hlds HLDS LAUNCHER Valve . Make a shortcut of it on your desktop . Screenshot 5>>>> 2.enter the properties of ur shortcut Search for the TARGET Line at the end we'll be adding:
-console -game cstrike +maxplayers 16 +map 'de_dust2' -pingbooster 3 YOU CAN CHANGE cstrike to czero If you wanna start ur server on Condition zero . -maxplayers and -map can be changed to. Don't touch the -pingbooster !!!
By doing this, each time you will load the HLDS with this shortcut, you will open it in a console, meaning less memory usage and more CPU power available. YOU SHOULD GET THIS RESULT !!! http://h1.ripway.com/xjuanx1/naamloos6.JPG

This is too small tutorial about making hlds server... You skipped the most important part... That part is configuration for server.cfg and amx mod x... No one will play on the server if you don't have amx mod x on it... Here you can find the configuration for server and here the amx mod x... And use more HTML...
Also you can add to the tutorial patch for non steam servers.... You were wrong with the target of icon... That should look like this... "C:\Program Files\HLDS\hlds.exe" -console -game cstrike +maxplayers 2-32 +port 27015 -insecure -pingboost 3 +sys_ticrate 1000 +heapsize 250000 +map de_dust2
For HLDS you must have opened ports on your ruter.... Tutorial for port forwarding.
Just want to point out that this in not a nonsteam install. The HLDS LAUNCHER is a steam updater. The only difference between this install and any other possible install is you don't have to have the steam gui client open to run the server but it still uses steam authentication.
ok thx for the feedback changed my title :)
You we're unclear at explaining what this specifically does. It's not illegal, it's essentially running a dedicated server without having Steam to run. However, the title implies setting up a server for illegal/pirated clients to join, which it does not. A better formulated title would combat that.
Hey thank you for This Kewl Tutorial!!!
Thanks... I'll try this...
