Need help with the basics, but also customizations.

Dear friends,

We want to get our own CS:S server but don’t know how.

Are you a Candidate who can:
  • Recommend set-up options for CS in simple terms, without the industry jargon?
  • Install CS and get it running?
  • Get our branding placed discretely on the map?
Are you an Advanced Candidate who can:
  • Provide an even deeper level of customization such as global settings, animate/skins, sound FX?
  • Work remotely with others to carry out such customizations?

Payment and Contact:

1. We use PayPal. Please work transaction-fees into our total.
2. Tells us in what way you can contribute?

We look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you kindly,

    login anonymous
    3: Get a server account(I forgot this one. It's used to not have lag on LAN when you are playing)
    4: Install the dedicated server you want( For CS:S it's 232330
    5: Choose an install directoryOPTIONAL
    6: Install the CS:S server
    app_update 232330 validate
    7: Then launch your server from it's folder with this batch script:

    @echo off
    start srcds.exe -console -game cstrike +map "your map of choice" +maxplayers "the amount of players you want"
    goto srcds

    This should be it
