What is Counter Strike 1.6
Today I will teach you how to create a Counter strike 1.6 server easy. First we need to know what actually Counter Strike is. Counter strike is a LAN and online game. It is a first person shooting game. There are two total teams one is Terrorists and the other is Counter Terrorists. The object of the game is to eliminate other enemies; you get to buy your choice of guns from the money you obtain by winning rounds and killing enemies. Now that we have gotten over the basics of the game, let’s come to making the server.
How to create the server
First you will have to go to your C drive and make a folder called “HLDS” once that has been created go to www.google.com and search for “hlds update tool” and download it. Once it has been downloaded install it in your HLDS folder that you created. After that open up hldsupdatetool.exe and update it. Then go to start and select “run” and then write “cmd” a command prompt will open over there first write this to change the target to the HLDS folder:
Once that has been done and the target has been changed write this line for the downloading of the server files start.
Hldsupatetool.exe –command update –game cstrike –dir .
Don’t forget the (DOT) “.” After dir, once that has been done the downloading will start, don’t worry it will take a long time for the things to be downloaded depending on your internet speed. Then once it has finished you have to go to the folder called “Cstrike” which will be your mod. Over there open “server” configuration file in notepad and change “sv_lan 1” to “sv_lan 0” this way your server will be changed from LAN to public, if you want it to remain LAN then don’t change it. Once that is done it is time to turn your server on. Open the HLDS.exe file and choose name and fill all the other details. Start server and your running, tell the IP to all your friends and enjoy playing.
To forward ports for router users
Go to www.portforward.com and go to guides and then port forwarding through router, then select your router, then choose counter strike from the guides and do as it says. Once the ports have been forwarded go to www.whatismyip.com and see your IP then tell your friends the IP address and after the address put the port you are using for example:
Your IP address is: 126.96.36.199
And your port is: 27015
So your server IP address would be: 188.8.131.52:27015
You will tell this IP to your friends so they can log in to your account.
Changing server IP to DYNAMIC DNS
To do this you must go to www.dyndns.com and register and account, login and go to my hosts and create a host. Then select the name and choose “ath.cx” because other ones don’t work and some do, I only know about this one. Select “host with IP” and select “auto detect IP Address”. Restart your server and then tell al your friends your new IP for example you made this DNS:
So when you are going to tell your friends the IP address of your sever you will put the port name in the end like this:
How to connect to server
Tell your friends to open Counter strike, Go to Favorites and select add server over there tell them to put the IP address you created. Then have fun playing with them on your own server.
Go to www.google.com and search for admin mod for counter strike 1.6 and download the file. Extract anywhere and once extracted there will be a file called “admin” open it and select the details. Once it is installed in your server directory, go to “CStrike” and then open addons, this will be where all your mods will go. Now download amx_modx and install in to addons folder. Then the same is for every mod.
