I just purchased counter strike condition zero from steam, and now I want to host a public server over which my friends can connect from different places over the internet.

For that I tried installing Half Life Dedicated Server from steam itself, but when I run it all I see is this error enter image description here

Have any of you guys got any luck with running public servers from your mac for counter strike condition zero?

Any help would be great.


  • While I could be wrong, I don't believe that Valve made OSX versions of the dedicated server software for hlds (Half-Life based games) or srcds (Half-Life 2 based games).

  • Valve's Alfred Reynolds said this on their Github bug tracker in 2013: "The demand is too low to warrant the cost of supporting the OS X for the dedicated server, and Apple's recent trend of removing higher end hardware support from their options just compounds the price premium you already pay, making running a dedicated server on OSX a bad idea."

  • mac is a trouble to work with in games as it is let alone running servers on them
