I had the same problem with CS 1.5 and wine.

How are you starting CS?

I had to change dirtectory into my CS folder and start the game from that folder.
once I did that I was able to host and play on LAN servers.

Try that.

My Steam doesn't even work unless I change directory first :/

I know that this thread is really old, but guess it might help the people who search google in the future,

To play CS-CZ or any other version in a LAN just rename the motd.txt files in the cstrike/czero directories to oldmotd.txt and start the game with wine and wola everything works perfectly ;)

Hope it helps ;)

Thanks a lot... Renaming the motd.txt files to oldmotd.txt helps! I know this thread is really old, but can you explain why this works and how this works?

This work as wine was not able to render the motd.txt file properly. I was using ubuntu a few months back. Need to move back to it soon.

Hey this is my first message, I've been reading and observing this forum for a long time. So hello to everyone.

The MOTD issue happens because WINE can't render the html with Half-Life 1 engine. If you are trying to join another server, you can prevent your client from rendering the server's WINE-crashing motd.txt.

Create a file called motd_temp.html in cstrike or czero directory and make it read only. If that file already exists, just erase everything in it and make it read only... When you join a server, your client will not be able to download and replace, then show the motd.txt which crashes your WINE and show you an empty window ^^ You can play happily in other players servers now ;)
