Installing Maps - A Tutorial for Counter-Strike 1.6.

Ok, here is an easy way to install maps. First you need a copy of [WinRAR]( ""). Then you need to open the .rar file you just downloaded, and extract the map information to your cstrike folder. This is located in (drive):Steam/steamapps/common/Half-Life/cstrike If for some reason it doesn't work then you might have to manually extract the files: 1. Create a folder on your desktop called unpacked (or whatever). 2. Extract everything to your unpacked folder. 3. Go into your root cstrike folder ....(drive):Steam/steamapps/common/Half-Life/cstrike Here you will see a bunch of folders and other files. We are concerned with the following:
  • Maps
  • Gfx
  • Sprites
  • Sounds
  • Models
  • If you don't see these then you need to create them. Simply cut and paste everything from the unpacked folder in to the appropriate folder. Here is a simple guide:
    File Name Folder Placed In
    .txt Maps
    .bsp Maps
    .tga Gfx/env
    .wav Sound/ambience
    .spr Sprites
    .mdl Models
    If you get any .wad files then place them in the ROOT cstrike folder:
