This is an old beta of Counter-Strike, by Gooseman and Cliffe, before Valve made it into a retail game. The authors are updating it, but is completely independent from the retail version.
Authors: Gooseman and Cliffe
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. We hope you will be immersed in the frightening and intense world of Counter-Terrorism.
This the old Counter-strike beta, the last of the betas before the retail
release. You can still download this game today for your copy of half-life.
Steam or Won. Yet with what I'm doing with this is Making it completely Steam
friendly and adding around 50 of the classic beta maps that were included with
the mod. Such as as_tundra cs_thunder de_zoption es_jungle ka_matrix cs_station
and many more. Delivering you a chance to play to play counter-strike before
when it was a mod. THis Includes a New start up logo and music in the menu
screen. All weapons from CS 1.6 are included exept for the Famas and Galil. Arms
are darker and player models are less realistic, they have more renderings like
if shot in the face they will hold there face and scream, if shot in the leg
they will limp for about a second. Also there are about 6 more Assassination
maps that 1.6 does not have.
A new GameMenu.res will be added to the
game so the menu will have these 4 options:
Custom Game(other mods you have installed)
splash logo from the won version of CS beta 7,1 will be converted to a steam
friendly version, along with a new Game Menu Button.
Many Classic beta
maps(even the ones from previous betas will be added to the mod).
WADS will be added so all maps are FULLY Playable.
An Improved settings
for keyboards will be added.
(A voice communication setting will be added in
a patch or in the full release)
This Includes 79 maps( I might add some
And 60 more as of 2.0
