UKCS Game Connect Plugin: CSS Servers - Updated 27/04/13

Postby TC on Tue Jul 03, 2007 10:00 pm

UKCS now has an official UKCS plugin to CSS with a UKCS logo screen and explicit menu options for joining CSS servers 1, 2 and 3. The plugin is easy to install by just clicking on the link below and running it. It has been updated to work with the latest version of CSS (SteamPipe version).

Download and run: http://www.ukcs.net/plugins/CSS_UKCS_GUI_Setup.exe

Apart from having a cool official UKCS logo screen in CSS, the on screen join options allows sponsors to join the servers even when full. Eg, if UKCS#2 is on 46/46, still click the "Join UKCS#2" option, and an extra slot is added at the time you join making it 47/46!

To install the GUI on a Mac, all you need to do is to unzip the following file to your ..Steam/steamapps/common/counter-strike source/cstrike/custom/ folder:
http://www.ukcs.net/plugins/CSS_UKCS_GUI_MAC.zip

Note. The extra menu options can be removed at anytime by going in to Windows Remove Programs and de-installing.

There is also a version of the plugin without the background if for example you already have one and do not wish to change it, the link is -> http://www.ukcs.net/plugins/CSS_UKCS_GUI_Mini_Setup.exe .

Superb work, nelsaidi, although I still find the use of Aztec ironic, considering how much it's slated :)

Think so. :P

This is gonna sound odd, but: would it be possible to have a Firefox plugin that showed the current amount of players, and the map on each of the servers? 'Cause I don't really need this, I just load from the servers menu on desktop.

However a Firefox plugin what does what the servers menu did would be ace. Just curious if it would be possible, really.

looks nice though. :o

Oi one question, has this one been tested with Casey's and other cfg commands that helps you to gain Fps?

These cfg files might bug it somehow, thought I'd ask before I do anything else :D

Thanks.

This does not install anything to your cfg directory, no scripts just custom res files and the background, however, it may intefear if you have a custom hud. So if u have cassy's config, this wont affect it, or any other script.

Excellent work with the plugin LG, however there is one issue I have. The background picture stretches quite a lot on 16:10 so I tried modifying the background with a custom one.

Prior to installing this plugin I already had a custom made background image so I'm fairly sure I'm putting the correct file in the correct directory etc. However when I replace the background01.vtf and vmt with my custom ones, I get the purple and black checkerboard for a background image.

So is there any way of altering the background after installing this plugin, or do I have to make do with the stretched (albeit very good) one with this

However even if u do alter it (which the license disallows :P ) , it will still be streched, I am aware of this and i am considering a widescreen version. About the black and purple squres, it probably means 1. the VMT points to a wrong place or the VTF is corrupt.
