What do you expect. people find their computer not fast enough for their game. Adding more service and especially a server in the same computer will not solve the problem. how we say in chemistry ( nothing create nothing loose ) I'm not an expert in CSS server , but do you need an expensive PC for that ?

If I remember correctly, you can go into "create server" in CS:S itself. People on a lan should be able to see it. I'm not sure if I remembered that correctly, its been a few years since I did something like that

If u have it on STeam, then go to the TOOL tab and download the (i think) Source Server. You should be able to play CS on LAN but i have no clue how to put bots in tho

Data : i remember a friend running one on an old p4 with 1g of ram, but he have a software for that(i try to contact he but nothing..)

Phobia: yes you can like that, but with 20 bot it lag.. so with 20 people...

jcmaz: i will try that:thumb:

CS:S server doesn't require squat for CPU with humans only.
Bots however usually crush a server for some reason.
But an i7 should be able to handle a good number of bots without lag, so I'm not sure what the issue is.
You'll be fine with Humans though.
My Q6600 has about 60 Human L4D slots filled at any given time and it runs fine.

I personally wouldn't host a listen server (AKA "Host Server" or whatever it's called in game)

I'd put up a real dedicated. Here's a tutorial:
? Source Dedicated Server -> Install: Windows (Rev. 2)
