Counter Strike 1.6 third party anti-cheat
Hi guys, I'm trying to play CS 1.6 in Linux OpenSUSE 13.1, the game runs just fine, but every server demands that I use some specific third party anti-cheat software and after a few seconds, I'm kicked. What should I do? Has anyone ever played CS 1.6 in Linux? Is there some workaround?

I play CS for over 10 years and it's a shame Valve doesn't make a GOOD Anti-Cheat software.

You probably are being kicked by sXe or EAC, both don't have Linux support. I tried to convince EAC's owner to make a Linux client, but he said he won't do it because

a) Linux doesn't have a larger userbase
b) He doesn't have the time do it

I've had no problem finding servers that do not use 3rd party anti-cheat software which is the only real option you have unless the 3rd party vendors decide to release Linux clients.

If you really can't find vanilla servers with good ping your best option is to play CS:S instead as this particular phenomenon doesn't seem to exist there and wait for CS:GO to come to Linux as it is the cool competitive kid on the block and offers matchmaking on Valve supplied servers which are guaranteed to be 100% vanilla.

Well, I think I'll just keep playing CS:S, since it runs just fine on linux. Thanks for the help!
