A Metamod module to enable CS Bot in Counter-Strike 1.6.
Originally written by
Whistler using metamod hooks, modified by
Safety1st to patch memory directly instead.
What are the difference?
This version is based on memory patching as well for efficiency and targeting only bot stuff, in addition to:
- Linux support
- Works only on HLDS build >= 5971
- An option to precache radio sounds
- Non-bot stuffs removed
- Some general code cleanup
The only configuration of this module is a cvar which allows to precache radio sounds used by the bots. Located in
// Precache all bot radio sounds. // Please note: // BotChatter.db must be present. // Keep in mind that's about 487 files for ~10 Mo total to download. // Files are precached via the generic files buffer. // - // Default: "0" csbot_precache_radio_sounds "0"
if you want to know what are the cvars and commands available for CS Bots, type in the server console:
cvarlist bot cmdlist bot
- Stop your server 1
- Donwload the latest module version from the Releases section

To check if plugin is properly loaded, type in the server console:
You see something like:
meta list Currently loaded plugins: description stat pend file vers src load unlod [ 1] CS Bot Enabler RUN - csbot_enabler_mm v1.0.0 ini ANY ANY
Check the server log as well:
CS Bot Enabler v1.0.0 Status: Loaded.
- If you see nothing, this means
plugins.iniof metamod has not been modified. See step 3 above.
- If you see
badf load, make sure you did not do a typo in
plugins.iniof metamod. If not, then report the issue.
- If you see
RUNbut bots are not available, check the server log. It should give some message errors. This means likely memory path has failed. Keep in mind that it works only on HLDS build >= 5971. Report the issue if you have the right version.
