Instructions how to install Setti MasterServer
Working server browser for games (CS:S, CS1.6, DoD:S, TF2, L4D, Steam, ...)
MasterServer is a server which tells clients (that's YOU) what are the IP addresses of game servers (CS:S, CS1.6, TF2, ...). What you need to do is change the default MasterServer IP address to Setti MasterServer IP address. To do that follow the instructions.
The servers which Setti MasterServer shows are listed at http://css.setti.info/servers/. You can add more servers by submitting them to the form at the bottom of Setti mainpage.
After installing masterserver, the servers at Setti will be listed in the in-game server browser. For Steam the servers are found from Servers window. So everything works just like normal, but the servers are fetched from Setti.
Remember to backup your original copies in case you want to revert.
1. Copy MasterServers.vdf to config directory * Standalone: C:gamesCounter-Strike SourceplatformconfigMasterServers.vdf OR * Steam: C:Program FilesSteamconfigMasterServers.vdf 2. Make MasterServers.vdf read-only * Right-click over MasterServers.vdf, select "Properties" and check "Read-only"Download: http://css.setti.info/code/masterserver ... ervers.vdf
Remember to make the file READ-ONLY!
Making the VDF read-only prevents your game or Steam from overwriting it in some cases.
Updating MasterServer.vdf for any gametype (CS:S, CS1.6, DoD:S, TF2, L4D ...) should work. All HL and HL2 game mods use the same kind of server query mechanism.
Steam server browser also works with Setti Masterserver. After patching Steam's Masterserver, all HL1 and HL2 based games launched through Steam will use Setti Masterserver. For example Team Fortress 2 and Left 4 Dead work through Steam.
