I managed to dig out a copy of HL with CS1.6 that works under 98SE (green Steam like UI version with CS bots). The laptop I'm running it on has a much better CPU than GPU, so software rendering gives better results than OpenGL or D3D for the most part, but the lowest I can set it is 640x480. Is there a way to set the software renderer even lower I'd aim for 512x383, scales better too on a 1024x768 panel. I remember the original non-Steam Sierra release of Half-Life supported lower resolutions, but I don't think getting CS1.6 to work with that would be easy.
Yes I was thinking about the non steam version. I was still playing on 1.5 and other mods on WON2 about 12 years ago and I just checked, they are still going.I would love to join some MOD games. There are so many that where finished so late, that they where never played online.
Here is a list of basic AMX commands you will want to use. To use type them into your console (by pressing '' first) when in game.NOTE: In order to access these commands you need to make yourself an admin on your server. Join your server and in console type 'status' Find your nick name and copy down your steam id (STEAM_X:X:XXXXXX) go to: C:\\Program Files\\Valve\\HLServer\\cstrike\\addons\\amxmodx\\configsfind the file named users.cfg and add your Steam ID like the file tells you to.amx_help -displays a list of commands and their functions. Very helpful.amx_mapmenu -displays all the maps from your server so you can switch to them. You will need to do the following before the AMX map menu works:Go to: C:\\Program Files\\Valve\\HLServer\\cstrikefind mapcycle and open with notepad. Copy contents.Go to: C:\\Program Files\\Valve\\HLServer\\cstrike\\addons\\amxmodx\\configsfind maps.cfg and open using notepad and paste the contents of mapcycle.amx_statscfgmenu -a list of all to stats the server can display. In order to see stats with POD Bot you will need to configure amx.cfg by changing this CVARs: csstats_rankbots (turn it on by placing a 1 after it)There are many more commands but these are the ones I use the most. Search AMX for more.
So now you can play on your server but there are not always people you can play with on your server. By installing POD Bot you will be able to play on your server any time.First you will need Metamod from the previous step.Go to the following link and download the following file to your desktop:POD BotExtract to: C:\\Program Files\\Valve\\HLServer\\cstrike\\addonsGo to: C:\\Program Files\\Valve\\HLServer\\cstrike\\addons\\metamodAdd the following to plugins.ini and save: win32 addons/podbot/podbot_mm.dllPOD Bot will now load automatically when the server starts.You can configure POD Bot setting much like you did server settings by going to: C:\\Program Files\\Valve\\HLServer\\cstrike\\addons\\podbotand opening podbot.cfg with notepad. Read though and change as you like. I suggest at least enabling auto kill so that when you die the round will end and you won't have to wait. Make the auto kill time 5seconds.Now in order for bots to work with your maps they need to have a way point file for that specific map so they know where to go. Finding and downloading most way point files are easy!Go to cs-maps.org and search for your map. You should see in the search results your map and a file with the prefix 'wp'. If your map is cs_assault the way point file will be names wp_cs_assault. Download and extract to: C:\\Program Files\\Valve\\HLServer\\cstrike\\addons\\podbot\\wptdefaultYou will notice that there are already way points there. The pre-installed maps already have the way points so unless you added maps you will not need to add way points.If you can't find a way point file for you map do a Google search for it or search at this forum:Way Point Forumif you still cant find it post to the forum requesting one. Make sure to add a link of where you got the map you want the way point for!
This page has been added after the initial making of this Instructalble. After 3 months of running a HLDS constantly I have shut down due to an networking problem. In this section I will share a few things I learned and quite possibly go on a rant or two. When I first started my server I had no one connect for weeks. At the time I did not have may STEAM friends so I could not invite may people to my server. Before my server was brought down due to networking I had many regular players and from 2 to 9 the server always had people on it. How did I do it in 3 months Here are a few Keys to remember;1. Play on your server ALL the time. I know it gets boring playing with bots but players will not connect if there are only bots.2. Offer incentive to play. AMX automatically calculates rank and many players will strive to reach the top 15 but there also needs to be larger incentives. From the very beginning I offered Admin to any player who reaches #1. This was my key. I was very fortunate to find 5 very good players who took up admin. I had more then 5 admins but these ones were constantly on. One was on even more then me and many thought it was his server. 3. Careful when offering admin. Just because they are friends don't offer admin. At first i offered it unlimited to any one then it was for as long as you where #1 or if I liked you. I did get a few admins who played for 2 weeks and have never showed up again and 1 who was abusing and who I almost banned.4. Make it unique and friendly. I installed Parachute and fixed the money to $16000 this gave everyone a fair enough chance. To make it unique i had automated messages that would inform about the servers location, how to become admin. Pretty much in game advertising. I also had \"key works\" When chatting there were specific works such as LOL that would display a special message, \"Player is laughing, i hope it was funny\" there are so many servers out there and you must make yours unique to stand out.5. Good players. My admins helped with that. If you have an idiot driving away everyone else, kick them! You also need players who are fun. I had one who every so often would get me laughing so hard, that make the game fun!That's about It. Now go out and make a server. Invite me and I will come and play!
Functional interplay between Cys metabolisms and down-steam antioxidant defense was more evidenced when BSO was co-applied with As and also with As + NaHS. The pvsod1 seedlings effectively counterbalanced As-induced oxidative stress by managing H2O2 and lipid peroxidation level within control level in presence of BSO despite complete inhibition of γ-ECS activity, nearly fivefold decrease in GSH redox and significant down-regulation of PCS transcripts. Furthermore, absence of GST I and repression of GST II isoforms led to sharp decline in GST activity in As-treated mutant, indicating reduction in GSH-dependent antioxidant defense capability due to non-availability of enough GSH pool. In this scenario, significant induction of GO transcripts suggested a strong linkage between inhibition of GSH biosynthesis and photorespiratory H2O2 generation capacity of the plant. Inverse relationship between GSH pool and expressions of GO transcripts was also observed in rlfL-1 mutant of grass pea in which diminishing GSH redox due to BSO treatment led to enhanced GO expressions and photorespiratory H2O2 production (Talukdar and Talukdar 2014b). In this backdrop, increasing AsA content coupled with enhanced activity of DHAR, APX and CAT suggested induction in AsA-mediated antioxidant defense in the pvsod1 mutant as a bypass mode of GSH. Interestingly, APX III isoform was unique in the mutant which was up-regulated only when BSO was added in the medium. It is also noteworthy that apart from APX I, expressions of all the isoforms of APX, DHAR and CAT elevated markedly in this treatment compared to As treatment alone. 1e1e36bf2d
