CSPSP Server (version 1.51) is the server application for CSPSP (version 1.91), a PSP homebrew shooter inspired by Counter Strike.


This application requires the Microsoft.NET Framework. Please make sure you have it installed before continuing.

Extract the CSPSPServer folder to any location on your harddrive.

Open config.txt to customize your server's settings (see the following section for more information).

If you are behind a router, portforward the port specified in config.txt (default is 42692). A tutorial by [email protected] can be found here.

Run CSPSPServer.exe. If everything went smoothly, you should now be able to connect to your server from your psp.

User guide


To configure your server, open up data/config.txt. Inside, you'll find a few settings that you can change.

"name" The name of your server (max 32 characters).
"autobalance" Enables/disables team auto-balance ["on"/"off"].
"friendlyfire" Enables/disables friendly fire ["on"/"off"].
"alltalk" Enables/disables chat between dead players/spectators and players still alive ["on"/"off"].
"maxplayers" Maximum number of players that can join the server (max 32).
"roundtime" Duration of a round in seconds (minimum 10).
"freezetime" The freeze time before a round in seconds (max 10).
"buytime" The time in the beginning of a round allowed to buy weapons.
"maptime" Duration of a map in minutes (maximum 120).
"port" The port that the server will use (between 1024 and 65536).
"respawntime" The time it takes someone to respawn after dying in seconds (max 30).
"spawngun" The index of the gun you want players to spawn with in ctf and ffa (e.g. 11 is the MP5; -1 is just default pistols).
"invincibletime" The time a player is invincible for after respawning in seconds (max 10).

To change the map cycle:

  • Open up data/mapcycle.txt.
  • List the maps in the order that you want them to cycle in, in the format [map name] [type] on each line, where type is either "tdm", "ctf", or "ffa".

To manually ban players:

  • Open up data/banlist.txt and enter their name*, with one name per line.

To add admins:

  • Open up data/admins.txt and enter their name*, with one name per line.
  • Admins basically have access to the same commands as the server owner (such as kick, ban, etc), except they can do so remotely while in-game.

You can also modify the data/guns.txt, although extreme values for any of the gun properties might not work well online.

Please note name refers to the player's account name, without the clan tag. For example, the account name of someone named "[clan]name" would just be "name".


Commands can be entered in the input line (indicated by ">") at the bottom of the server, Here's a list of the available commands:

/help Lists available commands and their arguments.
/timeleft Shows remaining time left for current map.
/kick [name] Kicks player with specified name*.
/ban [name] Bans+kicks player with specified name*.
/unban [name] Unbans player with specified name*.
/map [mapname] [type] Changes to a new map (type can either be tdm, ctf or ffa; default is tdm).
/resetround Starts a new round and resets scores.
normal text Sends a server message to all players.

[name] refers to the player's account name, without the clan tag. For example, the account name of someone named "[clan]name" would just be "name".

Common Errors

Error: Map could not be loaded.

  • This probably means that the map itself has problems.

Error registering server: Server already registered.

  • The server was not unregistered correctly the last time it was closed.
  • This is more of a warning than an error; the server will still function.

Error registering server: Version outdated.

  • A new version of the server application is available. It's recommended that you update as soon as possible.

Error contacting master server.

  • The master server that holds the list of servers is unavailable (or your internet connection isn't working).
  • The server will still run, and players who have your server saved in favorites might be able to still connect.

Error registering server: Supplied IP does not match.

  • The IP sent to the master server differs from the IP that the master server sees.
  • This error is usually uncommon; try restarting the server application.
