How to create a Counter Strike 1.6 Server[HLDS]

In order to install a Counter Strike 1. 6 dedicated server, you need :
a.Windows XP, processor 1000 ghz, memory 256 ram
b. Connexion to internet
c. 300 – 400 MB free space on disk

You shall have to follow a few steps :
1. Connect to the internet

2. Download here the CS 1.6 Server Creator installer and unzipp it anywhere on disk.

3. Create an new directory on your disk and name it HLDS . It can be named anyhow but we shall use HLDS because it`s classic .

4. Now doubleclick on installer.exe and when the selection window appeares you select the new directory HLDS . Hit OK and wait a few moments . A blue window will appear on screen displaying the scroll of the installation . At this point the installer downloads and installs all the server`s components in your HLDS directory. It can take some time to do it, depending on the internet connection , so have a little pacience .When the installer finishes his work , check out the HLDS directory and see if it has approximativly 315 MB .If it has , then everything it`s ok and if it hasn`t 315 MB you`ll have to repeat this step .Open the HLDS directory,Now open the cstrike folder

5. Next step is to set the server up for accepting non steam clients . In order to do that download here the swds.dll patcher . Double click the exe and chose as installation folder, the main directory of your server (HLDS). If you want a Stem Only dedicated server, just skip this step !

6. Next step is to configure te server.cfg in order to make your server work on the internet . Go to HLDS\cstrike folder and open server.cfg with Wordpad or Notepad. Delete everything and paste this:

// This config file is executed on server start.

// disable autoaim
sv_aim 0

// disable clients’ ability to pause the server
pausable 0

// default server name. Change to “Bob’s Server”, etc.
hostname “MeTaL Heads ServEr PuNe”

// maximum client movement speed
sv_maxspeed 320

// 20 minute timelimit
mp_timelimit 200

sv_cheats 0

// load ban files
exec listip.cfg
exec banned.cfg

sv_minrate 0
sv_maxrate 6250
sv_minupdaterate 6
sv_maxupdaterate 18

log off
sv_logbans 0
sv_logecho 0
sv_logfile 0
sv_log_onefile 0
mp_logmessages 0
mp_logdetail 0
sv_unlag 1
sv_maxunlag .1
fps_max 600
developer 1

sv_downloadurl “”

sv_voicecodec voice_speex
sv_voicequality 2
sv_voiceenable 0

You can change your Hostname to whatever you want.

Now save the file and exit.

8. No go to HLDS\cstrike\liblist.gam , open it with Notepad or Wordpad and replace text with this:

game “Counter-Strike”
url_info “”
url_dl “”
version “1.6”
size “184000000”
svonly “0”
secure “1”
type “multiplayer_only”
cldll “1”
hlversion “1111”
nomodels “1”
nohimodel “1”
mpentity “info_player_start”
//gamedll “dlls\mp.dll”
//gamedll_linux “dlls/”
trainmap “tr_1”
gamedll “addons\metamod\dlls\metamod.dll”
gamedll_linux “addons/metamod/dlls/”

9. In order to turn the server on, create a shortcut of hlds.exe file on your desktop and double click it. Edit the Server Name and chose your map, port and RCON Password and click Start Server. The hlds.exe file is located inside your main directory (HLDS).

The installer automatically installed Amx Mod X 1.8.1 on your server. Amx Mod X helps you to administrate your server ( change maps, set up cvars, kick players) and shows the game statistics .

To see if it runs properly go to the server console and type meta list . If the message recived is:


..then eerything it`s OK.

This is pretty much it. Have Fun !

Any probs post ’em here!

How to make Windows XP Pro 100% Genuine

OK, so you downloaded that pirated version of WinXP Pro and it keeps nagging you to validate it. I guess many of you are using the WGA-cracks that are released in updated versions every month. I did too, but got tired of it, and simply stopped updating the crack, since it was a big hassle. After a while, I found a new and better solution.

This method will make Windows 100% valid. Even things that don’t work with the WGA-cracks, like IE7-installation works.

Basically it’s just a wonderful keygen that somehow makes serials that work and validate. Heres how you do it:

Make sure all your previous WGA-cracks are deleted and that XP doesn’t validate. This is very important. The problems related to this are all caused by not doing this. It will only work for ordinary XP Pro installations, not for OEM-versions.

1. Visit to download the file.

2. Open it in WinRar, 7Zip, or something.

3. Open “Windows XP Keygen.exe”, select Windows XP Pro VLK and press the “Generate” button. Copy the generated key.

4. Open “keyfinder.exe”. There you see the key Windows XP is using right now.

5. In the keyfinder, go to the “Change Windows key” in the Option menu.

6. Copy the key you generated with the keygen into the “CD Key” box in the keyfinder.

7. Open “wga-fix.exe”. After, restart your computer.

8. Viola! Genuine Windows! Open MSADiag.exe, press Continue and enjoy the sight!


Here are some common errors associated with it NOT working correctly:

  • — Validation Status: “Cryptographic errors detected”
  • — Validation status: “Validation Control not Installed”
  • — Validation Status: Not Activated

The reason for the message “Validation Control not Installed” is because they have not installed WGA and its tools. Try a validation on (which hopefully should fail) and they will be installed.

To remove any old WGA cracks, go into your /windows folder then into /system32 and delete LegitCheckControl.DLL … then goto windows update.. that should work for you.

You need a regular version of Win XP, Pro edition only. No OEM versions, no MCE (Media Center Edition), no HOME Edition. The ‘Corporate’ Edition may also work, though.

Again, in order for this to work, your WinXP must NOT validate first.

For those of you who can’t validate with MGADiag.exe: Be sure that you’ve deleted LegitCheckControl.DLL and renamed both WgaLogon.dll and WgaTray.exe (adding “.bak” in the end of their filename). Then install the latest WGA check from microsoft update. (a reboot before this shouldn’t be necessary) now, do the procedures again from Step 1.

Your antivirus may report it as a ‘trojan’ even though it is not. NOD32 is notorious for this, and you’ll need to disable it first in order to open/download the file.

Recommended Uninstaller

Revo Uinstaller is a great uninstaller that removes every trace of yhe program to be uninstalled.


Where the built-in and sluggish Windows Add or Remove Programs option fails, freeware Revo picks up the slack. It builds out a useful feature set on top of a fairly light, 1.5MB installation. Launching Revo fires up the Uninstaller screen, which shows icons and titles of all programs installed on your machine. You can change the View to List or Details, if you’d like more information. Right-clicking gives users a list of choices, from the fundamental like Uninstall and Remove from list, to Search Google, Show the installation directory, and quick access to the app’s Help file, its About screen, and an Update link.

Revo also provides some powerful tools. Advanced mode adds program-specific Registry key access to the context menu. The Tools Optimizer holds the Autorun Manager, Windows Tools access screen, and a Junk File finder/killer. The Autorun Manager provides one-stop shopping for startup tweaking. Windows Tools pulls together various and disparate basic utilities under one umbrella, and the Junk killer is just killer.

The Tools Tracks Cleaner accesses cache-cleaning features, include standard browser cache functions as well as crash memory dump files, MS Office cleaners, system-wide and program-specific search histories, and more. Another cool function is the Hunter, which offers click-and-drag uninstall and process-killing functionality. Revo and the way that it will revolutionize your uninstall workflow is hard to pass up.

Recommended anti-virus for your pc

Tested a couple of av’s but i gotta say that Kaspersky Internet Security is simply great.Norton AV 2010 is also nice….but the former is the best.

The problem with Kaspersky(if you have a pirated version)is that its keys get blacklisted pretty soon…but you can get them easily from the net…so thats no prob.

You can get both keys as well as the installer from h33t.

How to Crack a Window’s Password in 5 Minutes(Method 1)

There are a number of reasons for needing to crack a Windows password: simply forgetting what the password is, working on a used computer, etc. No matter your reason for needing to, finding a Windows password is generally simple, and can be done in a very short period of time.

Items Needed:

– Blank CD

– Ophcrack

To find the Window’s password, you’ll need a program called Ophcrack. It is completely free, and works very well. Ophcrack is not really a program–it is a LiveCD that is burned to a blank CD (or a USB flash drive if using on a newer computer) and runs rainbow tables on a Slackware base.


Navigate to the official Ophcrack website at — download the Live CD ISO and save it to your computer. Once it is downloaded, you will need to burn the disc image to a blank CD. The software used will vary–if your system doesn’t have burning software already installed, you can download a trial of Nero, or something free like ImgBurn. Burn it at a low speed.


To use the software, insert the CD into the optical drive on the computer you wish to gain access to and hold the power button until it shuts down. Turn it back on and when the compute logo appears, press the button for the system to enter BIOS. Change the boot sequence to CD first, then Save and Exit BIOS.

The Live CD will start and the rainbow tables will automatically start working at the password. For the average users password, it will likely take about five seconds to crack. For a longer alphanumeric password, it could take a few minutes, but that is the exception, not the rule.
Once it finds the password, write it down somewhere, then remove the CD and restart the system. Enter the password at login and then change/remove it to whatever you would like.
