One of the most regularly updated, most reliable and easiest to use solutions is Setti serverlist. Players can easily find servers from the list and also add new servers for the list. All servers are checked every 10 minutes if they are currently running and whether they accept connections from cracked clients.

Serverlist includes servers for CS:S, CS1.6, CZ, DoD, DoD:S, DM, TF2 and L4D among lots of other rare game types.

1. Finding servers

1.1 Setti serverlist
Setti serverlist is updated regularly and automatically. Serverlist has all the known servers on the dark side of the Steam. For some rare game types (GMOD, Sven Coop, Natural Selection, DM, ...) there are very few or not at all servers.

    [[Please login to see this link.]]


1.2 Setti MasterServer
Setti MasterServer is an in-game server browser for HL and HL2 based games (CS:S, CS1.6, DoD, ...). This patch will list all servers in "Find servers -> Internet" tab. This is very useful patch because no updates are needed, ever. Whenever new servers are added to Setti serverlist they will show in in-game server browser too.

Most popular CS:S releases already include Setti MasterServer in their releases. Thousands of users use it unknowingly. However, if servers do not appear in the Internet tab then the patch can be re-installed.

    [[Please login to see this link.]]


1.3 Setti favorites list
Setti favorites list is a list for "Find servers -> Favorites" tab. This will list all servers in Favorites list. Favorites file must be downloaded when you want to refresh server list.

    [[Please login to see this link.]]

    Install for extracted (standalone) CS:S: Overwrite <css-dir>\platform\config\ServerBrowser.vdf with the link above.
    Install for Steam: Overwrite <steam-dir>\config\ServerBrowser.vdf with the link above.
    General instruction for any game (DoD, DoD:S, ...): Overwrite ServerBrowser.vdf with the link above.



2. Adding new servers to serverlist

2.1 Setti serverlist
New servers can be added by any user. There is a field at the bottom of the Setti mainpage which adds new servers to the serverlist. All servers are tested to be working before adding to the actual list. This way all the servers which are on the serverlist will work.

    [[Please login to see this link.]]



3. Comprehensive statistics for the servers

3.1 Global server stats
Global stats include statistics for CS:S, CS1.6 and combined other servers. Statistics show amount of servers and amount of players for last day and last year. Servers located on a world map can be also seen. People can look for servers which are close to them on the world map.

    [[Please login to see this link.]]
    [[Please login to see this link.]]
    [[Please login to see this link.]]
(offline)


3.2 Individual server stats
Every server in the serverlist is queried every 10 minutes. Graphs about player amounts, mapcycle and rank in Setti serverlist are generated.

    [[Please login to see this link.]]



4. For developers

Please, contact css.setti.info if you plan to use these "tools". There are already programs which unnecessarily get files from Setti website because the developers do not know what they are doing.

If you are author of program which does either of the following:

    Fetch MasterServers.vdf from css.setti.info. Same program also fetches all.txt.
      Fetching MasterServers.vdf is completely unnecessary because the file does not change. If Setti server changes IP only then it is necessary for MasterServers.vdf to update.

    Check unnecessarily whether servers are cracked with "dummy clients".
      Servers which are obtained through Setti serverlist have been already checked. No further checking is necessary. These "dummy clients" disturb game servers. Setti server checker does the checking with more kindness for game servers.
Telling about your program which uses css.setti.info "services" would be also nice.



4.1 Serverlist in text format
List of all servers can be obtained in text format. Servers are easy to parse from plain text file for use in other programs. Notice that all servers which are listed on this list are alread checked to be on the dark side of the Steam and do not need to be checked again. All servers in the list are also up and running.

  1. [[Please login to see this link.]]



4.2 Serverlist in vdf (Favorites) format
List of all servers compatible with "Favorites" format is also available. This vdf format is probably compatible with several other game types too (CS:S, CS1.6, DoD, DoD:S, HL2:DM, ...).

  1. [[Please login to see this link.]]



4.3 Patching serverbrowser.dll and MasterServers.vdf to use Setti MasterServer

2007-06-14 - This is not necessary anymore. The instructions to patching are here only for those who are interested.

ServerBrowser.dll must be patched so that it does not connect to Steam servers. This is done by removing IP addresses inside the DLL file. Also MasterServers.vdf must be edited with proper IP addresses.

Instructions how to patch ServerBrowser.dll and MasterServers.vdf can be found in this thread.

Patch serverbrowser to use Setti MasterServer

In addition to editing MasterServers.vdf there must not be duplicate IP for both hl1 and hl2 as instructed in that thread. Same IP:port cannot be used for both hl1 and hl2. Though, only hl2 can be used for CS:S and hl1 is redundant.



Setti staff can be reached through message board at [[Please login to see this link.]] or through these forums. Please do not post messages to Setti mboard which don't concern Setti CS:S server.

Setti MasterServer patch has been tested to work very well with extracted CS:S. Extracted CS:S means launching CS:S without Steam. Servers are shown in in-game server browser Internet-tab.

Patching Steam's serverbrowser same way is also possible but has not been tested so well. Setti MasterServer installer is meant for extracted CS:S.

I suggest that people who want to have serverlist in Steam use Setti favorites list. Serverlist does not change very much so updating favorites list every week or month is enough.

Instructions how to install Setti favoriteslist for Steam
    Install: Overwrite <steam-dir>\config\serverbrowser.vdf with the Setti [[Please login to see this link.]].
When you want to update your serverlist do the installation step again.

Thanks for the sticky! One question though:

How do people play The Ship? I was under the impression that it was an online multiplayer game, yet I don't see any servers for it. I do know that it has a single-player mode, but I just wanted to know if anyone knew of a method through which one could play The Ship on cracked servers (if any exist).

Thanks guys.

@unpurposed
Unfortunately there are not much "exotic" game servers. The Ship is quite rare even [[Please login to see this link.]] (click "View detailed statistics by game"). Even if someone makes The Ship server it's not likely to get popular.

@panda-man
That is exactly what is not needed here. Wait one month and many of your list's servers don't exist anymore. Wait 6 months and atleast half of that lists servers are down. Still people find these "serverlist threads" with Google and have to try hundreds of not working servers to find one working. That is why static server lists don't work.

Please remove your post.

For the record: You were missing 205 active servers. You also listed 120 down or legit servers. 10 new servers which were not on Setti list. 162 servers which were on Setti list.

Why do you post such nonsense? Those are not cracked servers. There are few cracked servers there but 99.9% of those servers are legit. Game monitor's list is occasionally scanned through and cracked servers added to Setti serverlist. Normal players don't do anything with that list.

What I found funny was that on [[Please login to see this link.]] there is only one legit server ;)

Go Lithuanians :DRINK:

Their neighbours might do even better ([[Please login to see this link.]]) though.

Go Latvians! :DRINK:

Can you confirm that it does not work? Try again.

If it still does not work you should search for file ServerBrowser.vdf in your HL2:DM installation. Then open ServerBrowser.vdf in notepad and just see how it looks like. Then look how [[Please login to see this link.]] looks like. You should be able to spot that the files are very similar. With little copy & pasting you can maybe add the servers from Setti ServerBrowser.vdf to your own ServerBrowser.vdf.

Reportedly MasterServer does work for CS1.6 and presumably it should work for all the other game types too because the query system is basically the same. For the same reason also Favorites list is expected to work with most game types.


@Team_Source
Please include a sample of your HL2:DM ServerBrowser.vdf. The file is human-readable and you should quickly see how to get good "sample" from the file. If you do not have any servers in your Favorites tab then add some random server first so ServerBrowser.vdf is not completely empty.

If you have already found solution then you should post it here for others to read.

But where could I get private server list? Original servers don't work in my HL2: DM.
And where is CSS private server list.
I use Star-Steam__Impulse666_Edition_Updated_09.01.07__Full.
I'm download my CSS in this client:

Gah. I think that by "not working" problem you mean that there are no cracked HL2:DM servers. Serverlist at [[Please login to see this link.]] lists some "Deathmatch" servers (there are many categories for DM because they are grouped according to AppID and some cracked servers report invalid AppIDs). Test whether you can join any of those DM servers. If you can, then play there. You can manually add working servers to your Favorites list.

HL2:DM is quite unpopular even [[Please login to see this link.]] (click "View detailed statistics by game") compared to CS or CS:S.

There are practically only CS1.6, CS:S, DoD and DoD:S servers more than a handful. CS1.6 is by far the most popular and CS:S is by far more popular than any other game type. Any other game type is a rarity and people cannot expect to find good servers for these. It is not likely that you'll find some "secret private serverlist" because game servers are not meant to be secret.

How come on [[Please login to see this link.]] there is 'Counter Strike' and 'Counter-Strike'. One has a space, one has a dash. Is there any difference? And how come there are so few CS:S servers but so many CS servers? :(. But thank you either way, I played for like 2 hours earlier XD I want to set up my own cracked server (CS:S) to run off of this computer, but can't seem to find a tutorial on how...


edit: Nevermind, found an awesome tutorial on ke0's website ;)
