A step-by-step guide for installing AMX Mod X

This version is applicable with-
-Counter Strike: Condition Zero (without cstrike addon)
-Counter Strike: 1.6 (with cstrike addon)

After installation users will be able to use AMX in offline servers (against bots), in LAN based servers and also on STEAM after configuring-

Note- If this doesnt work, skip step 11 and 12, dont install the cstrike addon, just install the contents of the Full installer into the czero/cstrike folder.


Step 1: Download AMX Mod X from here. You'll most likely want to download the Full Installer as it includes more functionality than the Base install.

Step 2: Double click on the .exe file on your computer to load the AMX Mod X Installer.

Step 3: Choose an empty folder to install AMX Mod X into.

Step 4: At the end of the installation, choose "Run AMX Mod X Installer".

Step 5: Create an empty folder on your computer, and call it whatever you'd like.

Step 6: When it asks you to choose an Install Method, please choose "Select mod directory" which is under "Local Installation".

Step 7: Remember that empty folder that you created in step 5? Please select that folder and then click "OK"

Step 8: A message will popup during the installation saying: "The file "liblist.gam" couldn't be found. Continue installation?" Select "yes" to continue your installation, as the liblist.gam file is not important in this specific situation.

Step 9: Check the folder that you specified that AMX Mod X be installed into. That folder should now have an "addons" folder inside of it.

Step 10: Go into the FTP area of your Counter-Strike 1.6 server, and copy the "addons" folder into your "cstrike" folder, as shown below.

Step 11: Go to the location needed to edit the command line of your server.

Step 12: Add -dll addons/metamod/dlls/metamod.dll to your command line, as shown below.

Step 13: Restart your server. AMX Mod X should now be installed on your server.


Note- If this doesnt work, skip step 11 and 12, dont install the cstrike addon, just install the contents of the Full installer into the czero/cstrike folder and restart the server.


Uninstalling AMX Mod X

Step 1: Stop your server.

Step 2: Go to the location needed to edit the command line of your server.

Step 3: Remove -dll addons/metamod/dlls/metamod.dll from your command line.

Step 4: Go into your FTP area, and from inside the "cstrike" folder, delete the "addons" folder if AMX Mod X is the only mod that you have installed on your server. If it's not, and you have other files in the "addons" folder, then simply go into the "addons" folder and delete the "amxmodx" and "metamod" folders.

Step 5: Start up your server. AMX Mod X should now be uninstalled.
