Counter-Strike Problem



Hey guys I'm having a problem with Counter-Strike, I keep getting this message: "You can not connect to a server running a different protocol version" . I have no idea how to fix this either, i'm runnin version 1.3 and it still says it. Please Help Me


I'm all ears
Best Idea would be unistall Half-life but save all your TFC/CS/HL config.cfg files, install HL, install Patch, install CS 1.3 Patch.

If its retail check for fixes.


So basically you want me to uninstall CS, but install Half-Life, do I really need to install Half-Life or is it just a wast of space? I don't mind if I have to I just want CS to work.


I'm all ears
Well what I would do is uninstall Half-Life, then delete your Sierra Director, then install Half-Life, then Install the latest Half-life patch (, then install Counter-Strike 1.3 (full)

If u cant be arsed doing all that, just use the Half-Life updater in the HL directory.

(if u didnt know CS is a mod for HL)


I'm sorry Hal...

unless you have the retail version, in which case there is a latest patch for that, check counter-strike.net

You should just be able to install the HL update without reinstalling CS, as the HL update does not modify the Cstrike directory, as CS is still an "optional" mod ;)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
