New Counter-Strike

Valve has released Counter-Strike version 1.6 via the new version (story) of the Steam content delivery system. Here's the deal: "In addition to the Steam Client and Dedicated Server files released earlier this week, Valve today issued the CS 1.6 Steam Installer, which is also free of charge to existing Half-Life and Counter-Strike players. Since the release of the full version of Steam, Valve's broadband platform for the delivery and management of digital content, over 200,000 new accounts have been created." The full 379 MB Steam install along with the Counter-Strike/Half-Life update is mirrored on 3D Gamers, Counter-Strike 1.6, FilePlanet (registration required), Gamer's Hell, Games Fusion, The Patches Scrolls, and Worthplaying.

72. Steam - I actually got it to work! Sep 14, 2003, 02:38 Tigger
Here's what I did:

Downloaded 370MB Steam file.
Backed Up original HL/CS Directory
Installed the shit that is Steam
Restarted for Good measure
Logged in - opened Steam
Waited 3 minutes
Clicked 'Games' and Opened Counter-Strike
Waited 3 minutes
Played CS 1.6 until 1am
Closed Steam restored backup of HL/CS Directory
Played CS 1.5 until 2am

By no means to I like Steam - I'm faking the funk(tm).
