i want to make counter-strike shortcut with connect parameter when game stats automatically connect to server

This is nearly identical to a question we had about Counter-Strike: Source (perhaps you are also playing CS:S and just mistagged?) – agent86 Jun 29 '12 at 14:13

According to this you should do it like that:

steam://connect/<ip address>:<port>

It can be a simple .bat file or a shortcut for a browser that will load that link. Other option is to use this argument:

+connect <ip address>:<port> 

Hope it helps

I believe the Counter-Strike launch parameter is "+connect" not "-connect".

Full list of launch parameters are located here:

Try changing -connect to +connect as per the Valve Wiki article on Command Line Options

I'm not at home to test right now, but that should work (probably) – Dave McClelland Jun 29 '12 at 13:47
