Manually Installing AMX Mod X

If you cannot install amx with “AMX Mod X Full Installer” automatically on your server or you want to setup new server with existing Amx settings and plugins ,Then you can install AMX Mod X with base amx files.(See below)

If you have a remote server(i.e not on your computer) than you can install AMX Mod X with this method through FTP.

AMX is a metamod plugin ,so you have to install metamod first.

Installing Metamod

  • Go to and download Metamod (Windows binary,Linux Binary or AMD 64 Binary)
  • Extract the files and copy them to your server. dll file must be placed in addons/metamod/dlls/ folder and plugins.ini in addons/metamod/ folder. (For Linux users, binaries will not end in “.dll”, they will usually end in “” or “” for AMD64 machines.)
  • Now open /addons/metamod/plugins.ini and add the following code at the bottom
win32   addons\amxmodx\dlls\amxmodx_mm.dll
  • For Linux
linux addons/amxmodx/dlls/
  • Save plugins.ini

Editing Liblist.gam

  • Next step is to edit liblist.gam.
  • Open cstrike/liblist.gam with text editor like notepad,notepad++ etc.
  • For Windows , Add the following line at the bottom
gamedll "addons\metamod\dlls\metamod.dll"
  • For Linux
gamedll_linux "addons/metamod/dlls/"

  • Save liblist.gam

Getting AMX Mod X Files

  • If you already have amx files then skip this step else  Download latest version of  “AMX Mod X Base” package  from here
  • Extract the base package to /addons/amxmodx/ folder
  • Also download the Counter-Strike Addon pack from the site and extract to the same place.
  • AMX Mod X should now be installed.
  • To see if  the  installation is complete  go to server console and type “meta list” . The display should be Amxmodx – RUN
