From 2006 to 2012, we were a team of CS 1.6. We participated in tournaments, won prizes and everything in General was excellent. But the moment came when the game cs 1.6 began to rapidly lose popularity. First of all, this affected tournaments. Then our team significantly faltered, and we began to look for other sources of income. Fate had thrown us apart, but we continued to maintain friendly relations, and occasionally met.
In 2016, after another meeting, we decided to remember the old times, and play cs 1.6 English version, or even in English - it was not so important. We have launched the steam version of the game, and... our eyes went blank. Stimovtsy spoiled the counter. Shooting has become no, fps was unstable, some of us did not start the game at all.
It was decided to find and download cs 1.6 for free (in other words, a non-steam build). We have tried many builds. Whichever one of them we tried to load, we always needed improvements, which were primarily related to the config. Moreover, it turned out to be problematic to download cs 1.6 without viruses... Among other things, we lacked an out-of-the-box solution. to install the game, we had the opportunity to add bots, so that the server (amxmodx) was already sewn into the client, so that it was convenient to install the server, etc.
This was the starting point for creating your own build. Several years have passed since then. We are still going to play together, but already on our own build, which during this time we were able to bring to an ideal state.
