Do you want your own CS:GO Server but do not have the technical skills to make it happen? Maybe you need one to play with your friends, practice with your team, practice smokes or want a public server.
My Counter Strike Global Offensive Server tutorials will guide you through your difficulties.
The series will include both Windows and Linux.
I will help you explain how to install plugins, maps and models.
Setting up workshop download will be no issues for you and you might even understand how to upload your own later down the path.
In this tutorial I am going to cover the first steps of creating a CS:GO Server on Windows 10, although it works the same way on Windows 8 and Windows 7 if that is what you are using.
There are also some similarities to the Linux install, but that will have it’s separate tutorial.
You can use the tutorial in both video and written format.
However, if you have difficulties understanding the different steps I recommend you to use both.
