STEAM final released!

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

Yes guys and gals, after some minor delays STEAM final has finally been released! Here is a short list of some really important facts which you can't miss:
  • STEAM will replace WON. It is not known how long exactly WON will remain but once it is gone you will not be able to play CS 1.5 any more.
  • STEAM does not yet not work on LAN games without internet access, support is being worked on though.
  • Not only STEAM has gone final, CS 1.6 will also go final!! (OMG)
  • You will need to download the new client, the onld one won't update.
  • A valid CD key is needed to play the game available on STEAM
As Bozer already posted the 1.6 Changelog I won't do it again here, just have a look at his post. We mirrored the client for you so you won't have any problems downloading it, find the link below:
  • steaminstall.exe 584kb Update: Spotted something very interesting on redphive.org, seems like there will be a "traditional" installer, very good since updating my CS would have taken only about 360 hours. Here is the quote from good old Erik:
      We're working on putting together a tradional installer for release today that should get things working for people. It's going to be a fairly large download, but once installed should make everything work much better. Erik Johnson
    Update²: It finally happened, since the STEAM Contest servers can't handle the load VALVe has released a client with all cache files included. It will only be something for broadband users as it is almost 400mb in size, here are there first mirrors, we will add more as they become available:
  • FilePlanet
  • FileShack.com
  • Pure-Voice.net
  • Ausgamers.com
  • GameArena
  • ComputerGames.ro
  • GameDaemons.net (BitTorrent needed, best way to get/distribute the file!!)

      Didn't try, had to go to work. I'll check it when I get back. 1.5 worked on Saturday for me after installing the small steam version and registering an account though.

      Finally got it to work this morning. I downloaded the installer plus cache files using bittorent. I used a bittorent link from CS Central http://www.cscentral.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=20830 (CS Central news thread) http://gamedaemons.net/steaminstall_cs.exe.torrent (379 mb installer w/ CS cache files) http://bitconjurer.org/BitTorrent/ (If you don't have bittorrent) Took me a while to dl it, but it did work. Un-installed my previous steam directory and replaced it with the full install. 1.) I then opened up steam (took about two minutes for the window to come up and stabilize). 1 a.) Entered my email and password from my previous steam account, logged in fine in about 20 seconds. 2.) Opened up the steam monitor window (took about three minutes to open, stabilize, and display the content server banner). 3.) Opened up the Games menu (came right up). 4.) Right-clicked the CS icon in the Games menu and selected properties (hung for a few seconds, then came back). 5.) Changed game update options to "update this game automatically" (hung for two minutes then began showing activity in the steam monitor window. Took about 5 minutes to change from “may need update” to “ready to play”). 6.) Double-clicked the CS icon in Games (splash screen came up pretty quickly). 7.) Opened the find servers option (list of about 2500 servers came up and refreshed very quickly) 8.) Double-clicked a 54 latency server w/ three people in it (Took about four minutes for Steam/CS to do it's thing like verifying resources and such). 9.) Got on and played for about a half an hour on dust (once we had four people it filled up very quickly to 20) Only played the T side but it was fun as hell. Shield Maidens are pretty silly in that I was able to kill them rather easily by strafing back and forth and shooting when they turned or pulled their gun out. New T rifle is fun, cheap, and relatively powerful. Had to go to work or would've played more.

      Calm down, I'm sure VALVe are doing the best they can now to try and program a stabler release.

      the loading should be done within 1-2 minutes, reinstalling steam might just help, and btw make sure u have downloaded the steaminstall_cs.exe cuz it had less bugs in it 4 me

      Ok i got CS 1.6 working for me, This is what i did .. This is for Retail CS mind you, I went ahead and installed 1.5, Then i downloaded the cs_steam file which is about 350+ MB, I then installed that and so forth, Then when you turn on Steam and go to games, Then right click it and check your status, Click on launch game and ta-dah. That's how i did it.

      I don't know how your Steam works, mine just has Half-Life and Counterstrike on My Games list. When I try to play CS it starts freezing or its just says Preparing to Play CS, but nothing happens. Help?

      That's so ironic, my dad punished me from the computer just when Steam got released ^^ By the way, I read too on the Steam forums a thread exposing the Steam log. In the log, there was searches for MP3, porn... I mean, Steam could do what they want with this! And what's more, if you have a firewall, you must allow Steam to access the Internet. Though I think Steam sending a 400 MB file would have a bit of an effect on bandwidth ^^
