Support for hacks and cheatsPlease note, this support was made for CS 1.6. Most of the things can be used for any other game, but keep in mind that it was made for CS.
How to use cheats & hacks
You need a program to handle the .rar files. Vi recommend you to download WinRar or 7-Zip.
When you have unpacked the files, most of the times you will have a readme.txt file. The instructions for the hack is in this file, read it and follow the instructions!
If the readme.txt file is missing, then extract the files anywhere but the Steam/game folder! Then open the hack and start the game. The hack should work now. Typically you press the INSERT, DELETE or HOME key to activate the cheat/open the cheat-menu (often you can also read this in the readme).
What if it does not work?
- Always download the newest and most updated cheat you can find. Old hacks may be blocked by VAC.
- Always read the readme.txt file and follow the instructions!
- If it still does not work, after you did what the readme said, then check if you are running CS in OpenGL mode (almost every hack for CS only works in OpenGL). To run your CS in OpenGL, go to "Options -> Video -> Renderer" and choose OpenGL. Notice that not all graphic cards supports OpenGL.
- Some hacks require that you have .NET Framework installed to work. Be sure to have this installed and updated.
- Try running the cheat as administrator, right click on the file and choose "Run as Administrator".
- Do you have a program for unpacking .rar files, such as WinRAR or 7-Zip?

If your game disconnects
If you are getting disconnected when trying to activate a cheat in-game, UNBIND all of these keys (write in console):
- unbind f7
- unbind f8
- unbind f9
- unbind f10
- unbind f11
- unbind f12
If you are using Windows Vista/Win7Users who are using Windows Vista or Windows 7 may have problems with some hacks. First try to run the program as an administrator. If this does not work, this can sometimes be solved by running the cheat in Compatibility Mode.
Compatibility Mode1. Right click on the .exe file and choose "Properties", then select the Compatibility tab.
2. Check the "Run this program in compatibility mode for:", and choose "Windows XP (Service Pack 2)" in the drop down.
3. Click OK!
