Counter Strike: Steam version 1.6

By Marconey09
May 18, 2004
  1. Hey everybody! I have a question... I've tried about three different different cd keys (That I've bought) and it keeps on saying "Invalid Cd Key" they worked for Steam version 1.5 but not on 1.6, I think Steam 1.6 has flaws... But I'm not sure, has anyone else encountered this problem?

    :( I've done that! They said that we can't help in anyway because we're not sure if you're using a KeyGen or not. :(

    well, neither am i, you know the rules mate, i think a lot of people will be unwilling to help you here coz saying you bought 3 CD-Keys sounds a bit dodgy, try another forum. sorry

    I'd recommend you visit the forums at counter-strike.net , they would be more helpful than most people here. I was there the other day, before I posted my question I found the answer by browsing a couple of pages in the forums. I'm sure lots of other have asked your question at those forums. give it a try, you got nothing to lose. Besides, the people at the counter-strike.net forums don't seem so paranoid about someone using a number obtained with a keygen.

    Can't say I've ever had a problem with my HL serial key that I got with the original half life when it was first released. Steam 1.6 works fine and CS:CZ models and guns etc. look so much nicer now :D

    You managed to get CZ models into CS? Nice. Without buying CS:CZ? If so do you have any information on how to do it?

    All i can say to Marconey09 is that if you really want to play CS online (which you should - its great) then buy yourself another copy of HL - its only about £5 now on budget release and worth every penny.

    Nope. I was a big CS fan so I bought CZ and was initially disappointed, but now they have updated CZ to use new gun and character models and new weapon sounds. CS 1.6 still looks the same as it always did though.

    Yeah but here's the thing, I got the CD key to work! But the next day I (While I'm playing it) get this message and it shuts down the game and says "You have been using an Invalid CD Key" I've talked to them a few times about this but they still don't help...

    Maybe some got your CD-KEY ( maybe a friend ) & once Valve noticed a few separate people were using the same key, they blacklisted it.

    Maybe.... Hmm.... I guess I'll go and buy Counter Strike again, it is a pretty cheap game! But ehh... Makes me mad. :mad:

    I've heard Counter Strike Condition Zero sucks (Mainly from my brother Akio yeah the newcomer so welcome him people!) does it suck?

    I didn't like it at first because the crosshairs were huge but they are scaled properly now. Its not much different. just looks quite a bit nicer!

    Hey Arris, do you think you could send me some pictures of the game? And how many skins/guns can you choose from? Do they have a wider variety of guns and skins in Counter Strike Condition Zero?

    I'll do some screenies of the the new look CZ skins and guns. I might even look for the weapon sounds in the games directory and post some of them ;)
    Its pretty much the same amount of choices as in CS. The riot shield doesn't look like an armour plate off a van now, more like an actual riot shield. The good thing abotu CZ is that it will be due for more updates whereas I think CS is going to lag behind. When you consider that a demo at E3 showed CS running with the HL2 engine (Source engine) its unlikely the old CS will be updated much in the future...

    :eek: Wow! You kind of lost me! Hahaha, so how many skins are there? And what type of guns? Do they still have to same guns as Steam 1.6? Or even Counter Strike?

    Hahaha! You should probably re-read then Marc! Anyway! Still I think it sounds like a waste of money I mean I like Counter Strike and all but CS:CZ sounds a little.... Of the same thing you know? It sounds like an update! I still like to play the old Counter Strike. I barely ever play 1.6! ;)

    It is a waste of money considering that the multiplayer element of HL2 is going to be counter-strikeif you can take what the demonstrator says in the E3 Half Life 2 demo as gospel. Basically CZ is CS but with new maps, new map graphics for old maps, new character models, new gun models/skins and new high definition sounds. But since your brother says he was going to buy another copy of CS to get a serial key he might as well go for CS:CZ in my opinion.... ;)

    Well going by his profile I'm 4 years older so what does that make me :D
