I'm quite an old fan of Counter-Strike. 3 or 4 years ago I was able to play Counter-Strike 1.6 with the Condition Zero bot (also called zbot). This bot is quite awesome as it it well programmed and automatically creates its waypoints.

I extracted everything as always in my cstrike directory, but apparently the bot doesn't load for some reason. Any ideas?

  • Play CZ instead maybe? – Xeon06 Nov 9 '11 at 14:34

    sorry, I rather play battlefield or minesweeper rather than cz – jokoon Nov 12 '11 at 12:32

The best option might be Condition Zero instead of plain CS 1.6

Z-Bot works still fine with the Steam Version:

  • Download and extract the ZBot ZIP-File
  • Copy all files (except liblist.gam and commandmenu.txt) to your ...\Steam\SteamApps\\..\cstrike directory
  • In the Steam Game Library -> right click on Counter-Strike -> Properties -> Launch Options and add -dll "dlls\zbotcz"
  • Now you can run the game

I don't think zbot works with Steam. It was designed to work with non-Steam CS 1.6 which is also outdated by now.

  • zbot was developed by turtle studios to provide bots to cs:cz, but it also worked for cs 1.6. – jokoon Oct 10 '11 at 15:56

    It's the same engine on both so basically you can say it either way. But I was emphasizing the "non-Steam" part anyway. ;) The point is - zbot is pretty outdated so it won't work with updated CS:CZ/CS1.6. It will only work with old versions it was designed for, if you can find them. – mack Oct 11 '11 at 3:30

You can simply add bots using following steps:

  1. Download zBots from here --> https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_mNu5ekLshNS0dlX3ltcFVIYUU/edit?usp=sharing
  2. After downloading Extract the files.
  3. Now copy these files into your cstrike directory. For STEAM: C:/ProgramFiles/Steam/Steamapps/common/HalfLife/cstrike For Non STEAM: C:/ProgramFiles/Valve/Counter-strike/cstrike
  4. It will ask for Replace Files, replace them and you are done.

Now open the game and use simple commands like "bot_add_ct" etc.
