  4. it is not working it says unknown command please help

    1. First you need to add zbots into your cstrike directory then only those commands will work

    2. For those commands to work, you need to install bots first!!! So install bots and then those commands will work perfectly.

  5. i cant add bot in my team...what happened in this game

    1. it says:

      ] bot_add_ct
      Unknown command: bot_add_ct

    2. You downloaded and added those files correctly?

    3. Edited the link, it is working now.


  8. installed as per instructions even reinstalled to ensure properly done... still does not work...

  9. Hey i installed it all correctly yet when i make a server, it goes back to the main menu

  10. Local servers and multiplayer option in the menu that let's you play with bots in both CS Extreme V6 and CSO NST Beta 3 just disappears when you connect to online servers, instead of being able to pick online servers it just connects randomly and only way to get that option back is to reinstall? Does it have something to do with Steam? No Idon't have a Steam version, but I do have Steam installed could that be it? Anyone experience that or know how to correct it?

    1. When you join to some random servers they edit your config.cfg file, due to which you connect to their server automatically. To avoid this make your config.cfg file as read_only so that noone can edit it. Thanks.

  11. hmm...this does not work with steam right ? ....

  12. HI TEAM i have already played this game with some target for each layer like you have to kill this many eniemys to go next map.. could any one tell me how to play that mode
