[TUT] how to make xfire work with cs1.6


Recommended Posts

Ok so recently i started playing nonsteam because steam is being dumb on my computer and i use xfire with cs1.6. xfire is just like steam except u cant chat with the ppl who has steam frown.gif


i just wanted to share this becuz it took me some time to figure out how to make xfire work with the nonsteam cs1.6


so this is how to make cs1.6 work with xfire.


1.download xfire


2.go to tools>options


3.when a window pops out go to the tab that says "Games"


4.wait for xfire to detect what games you have


5.if they detect cs1.6 good for you if not double click on the "Not installed"


6.(this the trickier part) scroll all the way down to cs1.5, yes i didnt make a mistake click on cs1.5 not cs1.6


7. then on the top right corner you'll see counter-strike1.5 click on the arrow key and press manual dectect


8.press Browse and look for your counter-strike directory and select the hl.exe file


9.now to apply.




it should look something like this



10.restart xfire and go onto ur cs1.6 press scroll lock+X and xfire should pop up ingame.


btw almost forgot, to get xfire to work ingame ur cs renderer MUST be on Opengl


hope y'all nonsteamers consider using xfire i know its old and stuff but its pretty good considering it has all the functions just like steam and i feel like steam lags my computer but xfire doesnt.


feel free to add me on xfire my id is Romeo
