Steam vs non-Steam CS 1.6:
So, what makes the CS 1.6 non-Steam version so popular? And why you should choose, download and install it over the original Steam version? There’s quite more advantages, and will help you by showing them and making a little zoom about the facts!
1. No Cost – Absolutely free
Counter-Strike 1.6 non-Steam version comes absolutely no cost, totally free. That includes all type of payments (credit card/PayPal), email/account verifications and all other types…
In fact, many people in different countries around the world can’t afford the price. And many countries are blocked to pay for it (including mine). So, these players have no choice rather than the non-Steam version.
So, by downloading any cs 1.6 version including the non-steam from our website, you won’t be charged or asked about any type of verifications. We make it as simple as possible, so we can offer you the best possible performance!
2. Less resources:
Counter-Strike 1.6 is a low specifics game by default. Even in the Steam version, you won’t need that gamer computer to play it smoothly. However, many of the CS players play it because of that particular reason.
But, the sad fact is that you may get LAG or not the desired FPS using the Steam version. So, even having an average computer with 4 Gb of RAM and 2Ghz processor won’t help! Too bad, isn’t it? No worries, using CS 1.6 non-Steam you can get far better FPS (up to 1K) with the lowest possible Lag.
The non-Steam version is designed to uses far fewer resources. We get rid of all the undesired engines and DLL files to make it faster and smoother. Let’s take In-Game advertisements, which will work only to show you annoying ads during the game!
Another option is the disabled Steam CFGs and DLLs for the cache. In fact, it can take up to 3 Gb of storage if you use the Steam version of the game. So, we ripped them all off, so you can save more space and reduce the saving process.
3. Freedom of using – Use it as you want:
Nobody likes restrictions. CS 1.6 non-Steam was designed especially for that! You can use as you personally want and change it the way you want. This will allow you to do any kind of mod testing or custom changes in-game CFGs.
You can use it also to create Counter-Strike 1.6 Portable package (or click on the link to redirect to the ready package). Which will allow you to drag and drop and directly play it without any extra installations.
So, if you want to edit and test a game mod, you can do it simply by making a copy of the game folder. The same goes if you are trying to create a custom config and get a better accurate result while playing. The backup option will help you to save all the old files just by making a copy of the folder!
One more thing, you can also create custom game editions of your own skins, models, sounds, sprites, GUIs and more… This will allow you to create your own edition/version of Counter-Strike, like the CS:GO Mod, XTCS edition, Source edition… If you know what are you doing, this won’t be a hard step to do, and that will save the Steam version without any extra modifications.
4. Dual game Protocol:
Counter-Strike 1.6 no steam version comes with dual-protocol of the game. If you were even unable to connect to a server due to different protocol, this won’t be a problem anymore.
However, this game version works with both of the protocols. In other words, you are allowed/able to connect and create any non-Steam version server and allow players from different protocols to connect!
The same server is build using HLDS which is included in the game folder. It comes with HLTV which you can use to spectate any server/game without any problems. So, if you create a server using the HLDS file, you won’t face any problem with HLTV users.
5. Metamod and AmxModX included:
AmxModX is a plugin of the metamod game engine. Basically, the majority of the custom addons and plugins are scripted using amxmodx plugin. As it allows the easiest way to developers, this plugin makes things far easier for them and also for you as a player!
In Counter-Strike 1.6, you can use amxmodx for admin commands. In fact, not only the default commands as kick and ban. AmxmodX comes with far more features allowing you to take control over server online or even while playing in Lan game or with bots!
In our CS 1.6 non-Steam version, we included both of AmxmodX and Metamod. Which are installed and you can activate them easily. Just replace the line of gamedll in liblist.gam file with gamedll “addons\metamod\dlls\metamod.dll”.
