Counter-Strike is a modification (MOD) to the excellent game, Half-Life. It modifies the multiplayer aspects of Half-Life to bring to it a more team-oriented gameplay. Counter-Strike provides the player with an experience that a trained counter-terrorist unit or terrorist unit experiences. The MOD is team-based featuring one team playing the role of the terrorist and the other team playing the role of the counter-terrorist. Each side has access to different guns and equipment, as well as different abilities. Maps have different goals such as: hostage rescue, assassination, bomb defusion, Terrorist escape, etc. Weapons include the usual assortment of pistols, shotguns, assault rifles, sniper rifles, grenades, demolition devices. Each side has access to a different subset of weapons so for example only the counter-terrorist can use the M4A1, and only the terrorists can use the AK-47. We are confident that we've created a MOD quite unlike any other.

third party games list in "Play Games"


By CatfishD and kSta

Cleaned up some of the install files, some just null files (5mb less now)
Fixed so when you click "Training", there is no difficulty settings which means no confusion.
Final version;should be no more updates (hopefully)


Fixed GameMenu.res to work with the old training missions (thanks hobblinharry)
Added oldschool training facility mission option !
Added Gameicon in Steam list


Updated config to work with right hands, fixed some other config bugs

Luckily, you can get it for free, there is a webpage which has the half-Steam Half Life and Counter-Strike 1.6:

Anyways, it works like Steam, except there is no Steam, but the mod and the engine recognizes it as Steam, it's called emulation.

Third party is something unofficial, and the most common way I launch it is with CMD (or batch) files, simple like eating cake.

It doesn't automatically detect the directory, so where do I put it?

Well, since you have Steam, it could be C:/Program Files/Steam/steamapps/common/Half-Life, at least i think so.

bandora Oct 23 2008 says:

Hey! How can I make a server after the latest Steam update? the update that changed all the HL1 games from protocol 47 to 48?

I made the hlds work for cs 1.6 by creating a text file called steam_appid.txt and typing 10 inside it.

What is the appid for cs 1.0? Thanks in advance.

bandora Oct 25 2008 replied:

Never mind I got it.. for whoever wants to create a server they need to create a file inside the cs10 folder that's called steam_appid.txt and inside the text file just type in 70.

No HL:S does NOT work with this. You need the original Half Life 1998 steam version in order to play this mod.
