I found my counter strike game that I got several years ago. Probably four or more. I installed it and can't seem to play online. I never have mind you so I'm shooting in the dark. Have all the servers been abandoned. Is there some way to play it online or is nobody playing it anymore. Or does it matter that I have a very old copy of the game.

Get Steam First then try installing it. It should update on its own.

If it does not, register to the Steam Forums and follow their directions.

Yeah, it's best to use Steam. Not even sure if the original CS alone works by itself ... which could be why you can't play it.

Yeah I think I solved this just by looking at your post. If Steam did not install on your PC, then you got an old version. So it would be your best bet to Download Steam first, THEN install CS, it may somehow pick it up or something, im not too sure.

So first I install Steam then I install CS? Do I have to download CS through steam or do I install it off the CD?

If Steam comes with the CD, then try installing Steam first.

Pretty sure you just download Steam, then you can probably download CS and use your CDkey or something and from then on you won't need the CD. Pretty sure you might even get a bunch of Half-Life games with it too.

And Steam's getting pretty huge, so it can't hurt to have (their library of games is really growing and it's just great not having to worry about CD's, purchasing games whenever you want, etc).

Well, depending on how old your copy is(I believe steam adopted around CS 1.3), it won't come with steam as a prerequisite, so just download steam and then retry installing CS, and steam should pick it up, eat your CD key, and update you up to 1.6, where 99% of the servers are. As for extras... I doubt it, it'll give you the HL1 engine program... but that's just for running CS.

I haven't played Counter-Strike in a year+ by the way, so when/if you get it working, wanna have a go?
