Problem with counterstrike

Hey, I just got counterstrike:Condition Zero today. I installed it and then went to “Play online using steam”. I installed stean and registered my game using my CD-KEy. I launch the game, and go to find server , and attempt to connect. However, It says attempting to connect to server 3 times, and then says connection failed or something.

What am I doing wrong?

are you using a router/ firewall??

No. I have Windows ME, So no firewall built into their either.

ok i don’t know the game, was just a quick guess about a closed port

Yea, that happens with a fresh install. You have to wait for the game to update. Steam should do this for you automatically. You can check out the progress of it by right clicking on the icon and hitting “monitor”. If this doesn’t help, try posting in the steam forums
