New Half-Life/Counter-Strike Update Patches Available NOW

by Rainier on April 24, 2002 @ 8:30 p.m. PDT

As expected the Half-Life v1.1.0.9 patch and the Counter-Strike v1.0.0.4 (retail CS only) have been released. These updates have tons of fixes and tweaks such as the new Anti-Cheat protection, HLTV changes, integration of Steam technology and so on. Either use the SierraUp utility, from the "Configuration-Update" menu, that was distributed with previous releases or if you are one of those Steam people, you should have it by now (thanks blues). Read more for a detailed fix list and links where to grab the files.
