1. HlDSupdatetool:

Create a new folder where you want to install the game server. As an example we will use C:/HLDS
Open hldsupdatetool.exe and click Next,Agree, choose the destination folder.
Press Browse and select the C:/ driver, double click on HLDS folder. A message will appear saying that that the folder already exists and than we press Yes, then next until the setup ends.
Next step is to give a command from DOS command line. To do that, press Start button, press Run, write cmd and press OK. Change the current directory by writing the following command: cd C:\HLDS.
Depending on the Internet connectio speed it may take up to a couple of minutes or few hours. Write the following command in DOS command line:

hldsupdatetool.exe -command update -game valve -dir .

This command starts the HLDS download. After the download is complete, the following message is displayed: HLDS installation up to date. We will now download the files needed for Counter - Strike Mod, write the next line in DOS:

hldsupdatetool.exe -command update -game cstrike -dir .

After the download is complete, the following message is displayed: HLDS installation up to date

5.How to make /rank and /top10 work

Open statsme.cfg and change the sm_storebyauth from 1 to 0.
Secure server
It is important to have a non secure server because of many reasons. To do that, go to C:\HLDS\cstrike and open liblist.gam with WordPad. Modify secure from 1 to 0. Save and exit.
Starting the server - method #1
(This is the simple mode but the server usses more resources)
Go to C:\HLDS. Double click on hlds.exe and select the following options:
- Game: CounterStrike
- Server Name: eg. Best CS 1.6 Server
- Map: anything
- Network: Internet
- Max. Players: as many as you want
- UDP Port: the port on which the server will run (default: 27015)
- RCON Password: remote password administration
- Secure (Valve Anti-Cheat): unchecked!
Starting the server - method #2

(Simpler method, usses little resources)
Go to C:\HLDS.
Right click on hlds.exe and choose “Create Shortcut” or “Send to > Desktop”.
Right click on the created shortcut and choose Properties.
In Target field you will see C:\HLDS\hlds.exe after, add the following:
