How to get the CSS beta ;)
« on: May 13, 2010, 02:36:53 PM »

1. steam://validate/260  - and wait for Steam to fully download the GCF.
2. Use GCF Scape to extract the cstrike_beta folder to the SourceMods folder (located in the SteamApps folder)
3. In the cstrike_beta folder, open GameInfo.txt
Replace: SteamAppId 260 with SteamAppId 400 (or any other steamappid you own which has the ob engine) [400 is portal]
4. Rename steam.inf to steam_.inf
5. Restart Steam
6. Enjoy

Source is unknown but it works \ (only on your own create server with bots though :/)

Biggest change i saw was that you can now make 3d shadows with your flashlight  \ xD

fixing the airaccel/accel for your beta listen server (or srcds on Windows):

1. install metamod 1.8.1 (windows .zip) -> http://www.sourcemm.net/

2. generate it's vdf by choosing OS: Windows and Game Folder: cstrike_beta -> http://www.sourcemm.net/vdf -> the vdf file should be placed in cstrike_beta/addons/

3. install sourcemod 1.3.2 (windows .zip) -> http://www.sourcemod.net/downloads.php

4. edit sourcemod.vdf (in the addons/metamod/ directory) to the following
Code: [Select]
"Metamod Plugin"
{
    "alias"       "sourcemod"
    "file"        "addons/sourcemod/bin/sourcemod.2.ep2v.dll"
}

5. add at the end of sourcemod.cfg (in the cfg/sourcemod/ directory) the following
Code: [Select]
sm_cvar sv_airaccelerate 150
sm_cvar sv_accelerate 5

you can manually type that last part in console, too, of course. that's what worked for me at least, you can go and test surf/bhop yourself now. if your lazy like me you can just download an archived addons and cfg folder with metamod+sourcemod ready to run <- just paste it over cstrike_beta.

just thought i would post incase anyone cared, i'm assuming the beta won't be so quick to move by looking at the page of bugs/suggestions they've listed here.

A little explanation would be nice.

You have to type it into your browser, lika a URL.
Then it will ask with which program you want to open it, offcourse choose steam \
This at least is how i did it \

Yeah, I know, it didn't do anything the first time I did it. \
But I have everything done and when I open the game, it gives me an "invalid or corrupted .vtf, 'xxxxname'" error

Do not want beta!

Just a few questions:

Will surf die?
Will bhop die?
Will cs:s die?

Did you use Portal as the game? I tried some other OB game's and it failed for me, Portal/ID 400 works though. Maybe try validating it again, make sure it's up to date and that the files extracted are all there (and in the right place).

ie. Path to my root game folder is "C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\SourceMods\cstrike_beta".

I was playing the beta today
and it just wasn't the same game I fell in love with
Moving feels incredibly awkward and feels like I'm on fucking Crack running 40 MPH
Game still looks exactly the same
Achievements are not necessary nor wanted for a game like CS:S
And the biggest thing is that Valve didn't even make this themselves it was made by some Hidden Path studios. Don't leave your most popular game to be developed by a different company.
All in all I think this update is completely unnecessary

Btw a mod on steamforums said this way of getting the beta is like stealing a copy of a game from steam and can get your account disabled from steam, so you risk your own safety by using this way
How to type here!?

Hmm no, because it acts like a Mod this way (it doesnt say Installed or something like that, it says Third-Party Mod)
You would only get a ban if you were able to play on a server which you cant

Everything you said is correct, the ID is 400, still doesn't work.
