Getting Started[edit]

GSLT Key[edit]

Before you get started playing. Make sure you have added your GSLT key to your sever.
GSLT Aquired here - http://steamcommunity.com/dev/managegameservers

You can add this to your csgo\cfg\server.cfg server file in one of two ways:

  • Using the Text Editor

Open the server.cfg file and add the key generated from the above line next to the config file variable sv_setsteamaccount

// GSLT Token (Needed to make server work online, publicly.)
sv_setsteamaccount <GSLT key here>


  • Using the Configuration Editor

Open the server.cfg file and add the key generated from the above line into the GSLT Token input box

**REMEMBER*
Before you make any config file changes to your server. STOP your server, make your changes, SAVE your changes, then START your server back up.

Customizing your Server[edit]

Modding Your Server[edit]

Most of the mods for Counter Strike require the base libraries from SourceMod and/or Metamod:Source from Allied Modders to be installed.
As well as a custom metamodsource .vdf file.
We provide installation links for all three of these under the 'Mods' icon in the Game Control Panel.

Checking Sourcemod/Metamod Installation[edit]

Have a look here at the AlliedModders Wiki page on the subject

Adding Workshop Maps[edit]

The best source for this information can be found here: CS:GO Workshop Info

This web page references making changes to your command line and provides several examples.
We have provided this option through the use of the Custom Commandline tab.
All the options you should need to setup your server to use the workshop map are available under the Custom Commandline.

Add Counter Strike: Source[edit]

Local Install[edit]

  1. Once you have both Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Counter-Strike: Source, run Counter-Strike: Source once, and quit
  2. Open up Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and in the bottom right corner, click the icon that has a controller on it, then select the box that says Counter-Strike: Source.
  3. You should now have textures and models that are in Counter Strike Source.

Server Install[edit]

On your local PC

  1. Once you have both Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Counter-Strike: Source, run Counter-Strike: Source once, and quit
  2. Open up File Explorer and navigate to your Counter-Strike Source\cstrike folder. You should see several .vpk files
  3. Create a temporary folder on your local machine call it css-content
    1. Copy all the .vpk files from your Counter-Strike Source\cstrike folder to the css-content folder.
    2. Copy the Counter-Strike Source\cstrike\maps folder to the css-content folder.
  4. Locate the Vpk.exe application in your garrysmod\bin folder.
  5. Next, drag the cstrike_pak_dir.vpk file over to your Vpk.exe application. This will spawn a new window and extract the contents of the cstrike_pak_dir.vpk file, creating a new
    folder called cstrike_pak_dir
  6. Navigate into the cstrike_pak_dir folder and copy the Folders ONLY, NO .cfg or .db files, back up to the root of the css-content folder.
  7. You can then delete the cstrike_pak_dir as well as all the .vpk files

Copy to your server

  1. Connect to your server using your favorite FTP client
    1. Copy the maps folder form your css-content folder to the csgo\maps folder on your server
    2. Copy the css-content folder to the csgo\addons folder on your server
  2. restart your server
