So you say that you conquered HLDS... You learned everything about it... And that you still can't slap, slay, teleport, fry, explode, glow, throw, godmode, stick, make slip and model change your players!!!

The reason why you can't do this is because you need to install a mod that will actually make all these cool stuff! Before you go on with the next section that will be talking about the best mod out there (AMXmod), you need to learn how will you link this mod to HLDS and how will you be able to install even other cool mods and make them work at the same time!


There's a really nice open source project out there called metamod and almost all HLDS mods use it! Metamod is a DLL manager witch will actually change your server's DLL to adapt to your new plugin. In addition to that, you'll be able to run simultaneous metamod mods at once!

Installing metamod is practically simple, you can install it by reading the readme file or reading the next few lines.

  1. Download It (from www.metamod.org)
    Download it from www.metamod.org.

  2. Install It!
    Inside your half-life's mod folder (ex. cstrike), create a new folder named addons and inside that folder make another one named metamod and inside that one make another one called dlls and then extract zip or gz file and copy the DLL file in the last folder you created (/addons/metamod/dlls).

  3. Activate It!
    Finally, open your liblist.gam file (located in your mod's folder) and modify these lines:
    gamedll "dlls\mp.dll"
    gamedll_linux "dlls/cs_i386.so"

    To this:
    gamedll "addons/metamod/dlls/metamod.dll"
    gamedll_linux "addons/metamod/dlls/metamod_i386.so"

  4. Enjoy It!
    That's It! Now try running hlds. If you see this line in your console:
    Metamod version 1.17 Copyright (c) 2001-2003 Will Day <willday@metamod.org>
    Metamod comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `meta gpl'.
    This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
    under certain conditions; type `meta gpl' for details.

    That means that Metamod has been installed and is ready to work. Please continue to the Plugins section for more information.
