Install Metamod (IMPORTANT)

As mentioned at the beginning, AMX mod is a Metamod plugin, which is why you must first install Metamod. If you have already installed Metamod, you can skip the following steps and continue with “Install AMX Mod”.

  • First stop your server
  • Create a subfolder called “addons” in your mod folder (on your server)
  • In this subfolder, create another subfolder called “metamod”
  • And in this subfolder again a subfolder “dlss”
  • In the end, it should look something like this:
  • Now go to the Metamod website and download Metamod there
    Note: For Windows you need the DLL file
  • Now unzip the file and copy it to the dlss folder created above on your server
  • Now open your mod folder and search for the liblist.gam file there and download it
  • Then use a text editor to open the downloaded file
  • As a Windows user, search for the following line in the file:
    gamedll “dlls\mp.dll”
  • Replace the line with the following line:
    gamedll “addons\metamod\dlls\metamod.dll”
  • Save the change and then upload the file back to your server and replace the old version
  • Now search for the “plugins.ini” file and download this too
  • You can find it under: YourModFolder\addons\metamod\plugins.ini
    Note: If this file does not exist, create it.
  • Add the following line to the file (Windows):
  • Save the change and then upload the file back to your server and overwrite the old file

Install AMX Mod

Now that you have installed Metamod, you need to install AMX Mod. Proceed as follows:

  • Go to the download page of the mod and download the amxmodx-base-package under “Downloads”
  • Unzip the file on your PC and then upload it to your server via FTP (it should look like this)
  • Start your server

How do I install Sourcemod?

  • First stop your server
  • Then download the appropriate package for your system from the mod’s website:
  • Now unzip the file on your PC
  • Then upload the unpacked data to your server via FTP connection (e.g. with Filezilla)
  • Use the mod folder that you have previously created at Metamod (DeinModOrdner\addons)
  • It should look like this:
  • Now start your server again

After you have installed all the elements, you can check whether the installation has worked by entering the command: meta list in the server console. If it has worked, you will receive a display that looks something like this:
