Playing ‘Counter-Strike: Condition Zero’ With Hamachi – A Tutorial

Posted on: April 15, 2007

After many hours of testing with collegemates and reading support forums I’ve finally managed to host Counter-Strike: Condition Zero (CS: CZ) games and get clients to connect to me successfully with Hamachi.

I’m posting a guide to hosting a game and joining a game for people who still have trouble getting this to work.

To join a CS CZ game:
1. Download and install Hamachi. Choose the Free version while installing and not the Premium version. Rather obvious, right?

2. Run Hamachi and click the Create or join networks button and choose Join existing network.

3. To join our network get the username and password from someone and enter it and it will connect to our network.

4. Turn off your firewall (or disable it). Remember to turn it back on after you finish playing.
5. Run CS: CZ

6. Go to Options and change your name.

7. Press the ~ key on the keyboard. It is to the left of the 1 key on the top row of the keyboard.

8. Type connect to connect if I am hosting the game. If someone else is hosting the game look at their Hamachi IP address and use that instead of mine.

9. The game will connect and you can start playing.

If you get a Class C error, the host has not set up Hamachi aliases correctly. Ask the host to read the section below. If you cannot connect to the game for any other reason it’s a problem with your firewall (have you turned it off?).

To host a CS: CZ game:
1. Turn off or disable your firewall. If you are using Windows firewall, remember to turn it off from the Control Panel.

If turning off firewall doesn’t work, try setting exceptions for ‘Half Life Launcher’ from within the firewall program.

2. Run Hamachi. Click the last button and choose Preferences. Then click Window and check the Show “Advanced…” peer menu item checkbox and click OK.

3. Now for every new player who joins your networks you have to do the following steps:
A. Right click the player’s entry in Hamachi
B. Click Advanced…
C. In the Peer VPN alias box enter the first three parts of your Hamachi IP address (example: 5.46.80) and add the last part of the player’s IP address (example: .191) so that it makes a new IP address.
D. Click OK. (UPDATE: No need to restart Hamachi. Tested.)

4. Launch the game. Click Create New Multiplayer Game option and start the game. Other players can connect to you as long as you have set an alias for each of them.

You have to set an alias and restart Hamachi every time for every new player who joins the network for the first time. Power on and off is sometimes not enough.

If you have any problems leave a comment and I’ll find you a solution.

i tried doing that but i still get the same error when i host the game i am using hamachi i cannot even ping the people

hello i done all the steps for condition zero but when then game starts it just like stops and you see the sky in all other computers, the server runs fine, ping speeds 700ms
please suggest a problem thanks

C. In the Peer VPN alias box enter the first three parts of your Hamachi IP address (example: 5.46.80) and add the last part of the player’s IP address (example: .191) ———–Here the last part address is of hamachi’s or his real ip address?

Last part of your Hamachi IP only.

Im using counter strike 1.6 and i dont have any problem with the ping or connetion. I dont even use alias and i directly use ht e hamachi ip to connect. But when i use condition zero i face the problem

the error persists .. 😦 any sol?

there is no option of “Create New Multiplayer Game” in my condition zero


maza i gya

Wat is that? “maza i gya” !!

im playin CS 1.6 online…i made a lan server n then i tld my friend to join! When he tried to join he gets dat class C error… my one is So i added to his vpn alias in his advanced peer list!

If you are the server then you have to set the alias in your hamachi and he will just connect your peer using your hamachi ip.

Actually speaking CS 1.6 doesn’t need alias cos we don’t use any of those stuff, we just connect and start playing there were no problem connecting cs 1.6. The problem is only with cs:cz. Also check whether your firewall is off.

hey thanx for the information but after connecting when i start playing game with my friend , it suddenly exits saying “kicked off due to high ping value” can u answer to this question plz……….

Its because he has slower internet connection.

This server is using a newer protocol ( 48 ) than your client ( 47 ). You should check for updates to your client.

i already change my hamachi IP adress in the first 3 and last his IP adress then still hav the same error
