Besides your original Half-Life w/key, you need the following 2 FREE updates:

1. hl1110.exe (Half-Life)
2. csv15full.exe (Counter-Strike)
3. maybe some buy scripts, etc. Go here: http://www.csimmortals.com/

Install your original Half-Life
Update to hl1110
install csv15full
That's it!


Good Luck

If you haven't played in over a year, then you will notice a big difference in the reduction of cheating, thanks to HL Guard and VAC (valve anti-cheat).
These are both server/network side and you need to nothing special to take advantage of them.

Also, you need to get into practice so you can jump right into CS1.6 due out in March which will be the multiplayer equivalent of Valve's new CS Condition Zero single player, also due in March.

Ha! <shakes head> try again. it stopped a lot of the older cheats, but newer ones sprang in their place.

EDIT: its a great game, but if you haven't been playing for a long time, its very frusturating. VERY steep learning curve just cause people are obessive and play for 6+ hours and will own you. just keep playing, don't get frusturated and don't be afraid to change servers often to find some at your own level of playing. its the only fps that i play online, the rest are just mindless frag fests (course, more times then not, CS turns into that as well :-( )

Mr. Bojangles,

You are speaking to someone who has played CS since it's inception, has run a dedicated CS server for years and plays daily.

Yes, there are new cheats devised all the time by the script kiddies. The point I made however is valid. The poster will notice that there is FAR less cheating going on in CS than when he last played, so much less than one year ago as to be relatively negligible.

Yeah, go for it. Less cheating now, but you can never get rid of all of them......I hate cheaters, terrorists,.......I wrote a buyscript if you're interest. You can dl it here. Not the best one, but better than nothing.

I guess *I* haven't noticed less cheaters. i do know i can spot them a lot easier since i tried a few out a month ago, so i guess i just have started spotting'em a lot more and realize when i've been cheated. :) all i know is no better feeling then beating a cheat. :-D

P.S. don't cheat, its just boring, seriously. :-(
