As Counter-Strike NEO was never planned to be deployed outside the Linux ecosystem, a dedicated emulator is required to run the files.

Currently the game is entirely in Japanese so after running NEO, check out the guide for a detailed walkthrough.

Setup the Emulator

STEP 1
Download the game files and extract the contents2.bin (including the .bin contents). You will need an extraction tool such as 7Zip.

STEP 2
Download the CSNEOLibs_Latest archive and extract the contents to the Contents2\csneo2\linux folder.

CSNEO Libs


STEP 3

Go to the TeknoParrot folder (Contents2\csneo2\linux\TeknoParrot) and open the setting.ini file. Change the FREEPLAY value to 1 so you get unlimited credits.

STEP 4
Download the latest TP emulator and extract the contents to the same directory the contents2 folder is at. For example, if you extracted Contents2 at C:\Arcade, do the same for TeknoParrot.

Install Teknoparrot

STEP 5
Run TeknoParrotUi.exe and install all available updates prompted. After fully updating TeknoParrot, restart it. This might happen a few times if there are further updates. Re-launch TeknoParrot once again and select Counter-Strike NEO from the game list, then click on the ‘Add Game’ button.

Add CS Neo

Under the ‘Games Added’, select NEO, followed by the ‘Game Settings’ button.

STEP 6
Click on the space below the ‘Game Executable’ and select the hlds_amd file. The file should be located inside the Contents2\csneo2\linux folder. Save the settings, and you will see a success message on generating csneo.xml.

STEP 7 (AMD GPU ONLY)
For NVIDIA owners, skip this step. If your system is running on an AMD graphics card, a fix is required. Navigate to the TeknoParrot\N2\AMDFixByNezarn folder, copy the cgGL.dll file and paste it at TeknoParrot\N2 to replace the existing one.

STEP 8
Click on ‘Launch Game’ and wait for for the files to load. This usually takes a few minutes.

Play the Game

STEP 1
Once the game has fully loaded, access the console with the ALT+F7 keys, and enter the following command:
“login 13” (without quotes).

Console

Feel free to change the numbers to whatever you like; 33, 69, 71 and such.

STEP 2
Click on ‘OK’ on the prompt and enter any username. Then click on the [決定] button, followed by the [はい] button and wait for several seconds. The main menu should appear.

STEP 3
For the sake of simplicity, open the console again with the ALT+F7 key and enter the map (e.g. map neo_06collision). For a list of playable maps, click here

STEP 4
Once the map loads, access the console once again and enter the bot_add command to add bots to the team.
