ABOUT Counter-Strike Beta 5.2

A group for everyone who likes CS Beta 5.2!

How to install and play:

1. Download Counter-Strike Beta 5.2.exe (it's a self-extracting 7-zip archive) from csb52.tk.

2. Extract it into a location that doesn't contain spaces (C:\ recommended).

3. Open C:\SIERRA\Half-Life\ (if you extracted it into C:\).

4. Run CS Beta 5.2.bat.

5. Optional: Create a desktop shortcut for CS Beta 5.2.bat and change it's icon into cstrike\cstrike.ico.


Some useful commands:

name - Change your name (ex. name Player1).

sensitivity - Adjust mouse sensitivity (ex. sensitivity 3).

connect - Connect to a server (ex. connect 127.0.0.1:27016).

pushlatency -999 - Enable lag compensation. DO NOT FORGET THIS! Unless you're playing on a LAN server with zero latency using pushlatency 0 will cause noticeable input lag.

hud_fastswitch 1 - Instantly switch weapons.

cl_hidefrags 0 - Show other players kills / deaths in the scoreboard.

room_off 1 - Disable environmental echo in maps like cs_docks.

r_netgraph 3 - Shows your FPS and a lag-o-meter.

exit - Close the program.


Some useful binds:

bind mwheelup +jump

bind mwheeldown +jump

bind F10 exit


Tip: Commands/binds can be copy pasted in to the console with CTRL+C and CTRL+V


How to host a dedicated server and some useful server commands:

To host a dedicated server run Dedicated Server.bat. This will start a dedicated server on port 27016, that will be publicly accessible through port 27015 as long as lan_fw.exe is running (make sure you've opened port 27015 in your firewall and/or port forwarded it in your router). If you want to host a private LAN only server just close lan_fw.exe and connect to the server through port 27016 (ex. connect 192.168.1.2:27016).

changelevel - Change the map (ex. changelevel de_dust).

All default maps:

cs_assault
cs_backalley
cs_bunker
cs_docks
cs_facility
cs_iraq
cs_militia
cs_ship
cs_siege
cs_station
cs_tire
de_dust
de_nuke
de_prodigy
de_train

quit - Close the server.


Troubleshooting:

If either the game or the dedicated server refuses to start or doesn't work properly (despite it being extracted in C:\ or a similar location with no spaces) try first running CS Beta 5.2.bat or Dedicated Server.bat with administrative rights. If that doesn't help try going into hl.exe or hlds.exe properties and from the Compatibility tab select "Run this program in compatibility mode for: Windows XP (Service Pack 3)". For hlds.exe you could also try Windows Server 2003 (Service Pack 1) or Windows Server 2008 (Service Pack 1) for possibly better performance.
