Half-Life: MMod – How to Play Deathmatch in Multiplayer

Welcome to this guide on how to play deathmatch in Half-Life: MMod multiplayer. We understand that you want to experience the thrill of the game with your friends, so we have prepared this step-by-step tutorial for you.

However, before we begin, there are a few important things to note:

  1. MMod does not officially support multiplayer.
  2. The developer has no intention of supporting multiplayer, so any issues that arise cannot be resolved.
  3. Expect to encounter issues and crashes during gameplay.

With that in mind, here are some advanced warnings to take into consideration:

  1. Hosting a dedicated server is not feasible.
  2. Shooting a player with the gauss gun may cause the game to crash.

Please avoid pestering the developer about the game’s buggy multiplayer features. Let’s enjoy the game for what it is.


First, let’s prepare by ensuring that we have the necessary resources:

  1. Maps – Since MMod doesn’t come with any multiplayer maps, we must use our own. We recommend using classic deathmatch maps.
  2. Port Forwarding – This is optional, but it is required if you do not want to use a LAN emulator. Refer to this link for port forwarding instructions.

Setting Up

Now that we have all the necessary resources, let’s begin by launching MMod and opening the console with the tilde key (~).

Enter the following commands:

  1. maxplayers x – Change the maximum number of players in-game. Change x to any number greater than 1.
  2. sv_lan 0 – Allow players from outside your local network to connect.

Type the command “map” followed by the name of the map you want to play. For example, “map crossfire.”

While in-game, enter the following commands into the console:

  1. mp_weaponstay 1 – Respawns weapons immediately after a player picks them up.
  2. mp_fraglimit 25 – Sets a limit for how many kills are needed for someone to win.
  3. name (your name) – Changes your in-game name.

If you want to change your player model, use the command “model” followed by the model you want to use. For example, “model robo.”

Finally, give your friends your public IP (search “what’s my IP” on Google) and have them connect using the command “connect (IP address):27015” in the console.

Making It Permanent

If you don’t want to enter these commands every time you play, go to the “listenserver.cfg” file in the “\steamapps\common\Half-Life MMod\valve” folder and add the commands you used earlier.

And that’s it! With this guide, you can now enjoy deathmatch in Half-Life: MMod multiplayer with your friends. Have fun.
