Go on to this website
http://css.setti.info/code/masterserver
then it says setti master server right click on it then click save link the save it to your counte strike 1.6 folder (not cstrike), then go on platform\config\ save it there

it may come up with counter strike source servers if its counter strike 1.6 but there is only a little


Hope this helps.

hi I've got the solution.
when u click on download masterservers.vdf on Setti it opens up some wierd stuff right?
copy the writing and paste it in ur masterserver.vdf in the cs directory under platform/config
(example:
E:\CS Source\Counter-Strike Source\platform\config) by right clicking the masterserver.vdf and clicking edit.
replace the text in it.
save it as it asks and then change the file name from masterservers.vdf.txt to masterservers.vdf

go to http://css.setti.info/servers/cs16/ , then copy the ip address of a server , open cs1.6, go to 'find servers'-> favourites->add server and paste the ip , you will be able to connect to the server.

I am still unable to find servers automatically, but the method above works .

Hey man I used to get this too, but I figured out it was my Firewall that wasn't letting the server get to me. So I set hl2 to be a trusted program and now it works. OR you can just disable your firewall temporrily until ur done playing the game.

i cannot find hl2 in the firewall settings

Download The File First from this url "http://css.setti.info/download/MasterServers.vdf"

Copy MasterServers.vdf to config\ directory
Standalone: C:\games\Counter-Strike Source\platform\config\MasterServers.vdf
Steam: C:\Program Files\Steam\config\MasterServers.vdf or
C:\Program Files\Counter-Strike 1.6\platform\config\MasterServers.vdf

NOTE: If masterserver2.vdf is in the same directory then overwrite it too

Make MasterServers.vdf read-only
Right-click over MasterServers.vdf, select "Properties" and check "Read-only"

Ok,
Go into you counter-strike folder > platform > Config then open Masterservers.vdf with notepad.
Clear all of the text out and replace it with this:
"MasterServers"
{
"hl1"
{
"0"
{
"addr" "188.40.40.201:27010"
}
}
