Creating a Counter-Strike 1.6 INTERNET-Based Server (With AMX Mod X) [COMPLETE GUIDE with VIDEO]
After we recently discovered that people have difficulty creating an Internet-based Counter Strike 1.6 Server we decided to help you by devising our own complete guide:
UPDATE: Please see the updated guide here –> Creating a Counter-Strike 1.6 INTERNET-Based Server using SteamCMD (With AMX Mod X) [COMPLETE GUIDE with VIDEO] as Steam has rolled out a replacement to HLDSUpdateTool hence causing this guide to become unfunctional.
Minimum System Requirements For Couter-Strike 1.6 Server:
- Internet Connection of Speed 8Mb/s or Higher
- 1.5 Ghz Processor
- Windows XP, Vista or 7
- 400Mb Disk Space
Step 1: Download the Server Creator Files we have compiled for you: Counter-Strike 1.6 Server Creation Files
Step 2: Go on My Computer, then to C:/ and create a new folder called HLDS .
Step 3: Extract the Counter-Strike 1.6 Server Creation Files you downloaded (using WinRar), open Counter-Strike 1.6 Server Creator and choose C:/HLDS as the directory for installation. Once the installation is complete a black CMD screen will open which will download the server files from the Half-Life Servers! This will take 10-15 minutes depending upon your Internet Speed.
Step 4: Once the installation is complete check that the HLDS Folder’s size is approximately 315-320 Mb! If not repeat Step 3
Step 5: If u want a Server which accepts both Steam and Non-Steam Players then you will have to patch it using the swds.exe in the files you downloaded! Double click swds.exe, chose C:/HLDS as the installation directory.
Step 6: Now we have to Modify the server.cfg in order to make your server work on the internet . Go to HLDS\cstrike folder and open server.cfg with Wordpad or Notepad. Delete everything and paste this:
// server name
hostname “Server Name”
// rcon passsword
// server cvars
// round specific cvars
// bandwidth rates/settings
// server logging
// execute ban files
setmaster add 18.104.22.168
setmaster add 22.214.171.124
setmaster add 126.96.36.199
setmaster add 188.8.131.52:27040
setmaster add 184.108.40.206:27040
setmaster add 220.127.116.11:27010
Step 7: Replace Server Name with any name, e.g: The Techno Geeks! CS Server. And Replace RCON Password with any password of your choice.
Step 8: No go to HLDS\cstrike\liblist.gam , open it with Notepad and add this line at the end:
Step 9: CONGRATULATIONS! Server Installation Complete!
In order to switch on the server on, create a shortcut of hlds.exe file on your desktop and double click it. Edit the Server Name and chose your map, port and RCON Password(the one you set earlier in Step 6) and click Start Server. The hlds.exe file is located inside your main directory (HLDS).
The installer automatically installed Amx Mod X 1.8.1 on your server. Amx Mod X is probably the best Server plugin out there that can help you manage maps, kick/slay/ban/gag players, pause/restart server, manage cvars and other useful elements right from the game.
Step 10: To Make the Server INTERNET BASED you will have to do Port Forwarding, which means you will have to forward the Server Port through your router to the Internet, Port-Forwarding varies with every router, so message the Router Model and Company of your router to our Facebook page (Visit our Facebook Page HERE) or our Google+ page (Visit our Google+ Page HERE) and I will help you out in no time!
