Installing Custom Sounds for MOTD

Updated 2010 - Should work

How to add a custom sound to your MOTD when people enter your server.

Please don't use songs that are 3 min long and take over 1mb. (cut them down) This should work with all mp3's or most of them. Make sure your own game settings allow sound to be heard

(some costume config's that you download does not allow you to download music, if you cant download it, then you cant hear it, this goes only for people with costume configs)

If you done all steps and you still cant hear the sound, check the code below to make sure you did everything 100%

  1. Go into "source dedicated server/cstrike/motd.txt" If you don't got one make one.

  2. <embed src="sound/venom/LoadingFileSound.mp3" autostart="true" loop="false" style="display:none;"/>
  3. Add the folder "venom" in "source dedicated server/cstrike/sound" and put your sound clip in the venom folder.

  4. Open: "source dedicated server/cstrike/cfg/mani_admin_plugin/downloads.txt" and make it look like this:

"downloads.txt" {

// Add any files you wish to have downloaded to a clients system in here
// The key can be any name you wish.
// The value must be the location on your server of the file

"downloads"
{
          "sounds"    "sound/venom/LoadingFileSound.mp3"

}

}

NOTES: You can change "venom" to anything you like, just make sure you change it on all places it says venom.

When you upload the mp3, make sure its name is "LoadingFileSound.mp3"

  • Done !

EXTRA You create a MOTD simply by opening "notepad" on your PC and save it as:

"motd" (it will automatically add the extension .txt meaning its a text document)

then you upload it to your server direction: "source dedicated server/cstrike"

now you can add text you like and change it as you want using HTML codes.

(google for "notepad windows xp" or vista or 7, depending on what windows you use, if you dont know what it is)

    Posted by andros.g Hey there, i did that and it wroks... for some ppl lol the problem is that some ppl can hear my intro sound, others cant (i'm among them) i made the sound and i cant tell how it works hahaha can u pls tell me what is wrong? btw i did changed my personal config file in my css with another one but no change... so the problem is not my game thank you!

    try change then name od the file "LoadingFileSound.mp3" so something uniqe. (incase u read an soundfile with the name allready existing) like "m34n5hd6.mo3" (something random) might work..

    Also check your settings of the game on backround music etc sound settings first.

    Posted by paul378 How do u even make a motd ?

    "1. Go into "source dedicated server/cstrike/motd.txt" If you don't got one make one." That file will be your MOTD to work with.
