  • Installer does not work with Cedega; it is not able to create the directorys it is copying the files into.

Here are two possible methods of installing:

  • This is the most simple option. Use the original Wine to run the installer to your Steam's Half-Life directory, after which you can run Steam with NS installed. This may not install into the correct directory because the installer will not recognize a Steam installation. Bypass this option and choose your /path/to/Steam/SteamApps/ directory. The installer will extract the ns directory into Half-Life/New Folder/ns, simply move all the items of the New Folder into the actual Half-Life directory.
  • Creating directories: you can either create each directory manually as the installer promps each time, or you can use this script from the Forums then run the installer again afterwords. Just make sure to run the script from inside (Path To Steam)Steam/SteamApps/<your account>/half-life

  • From existing install: copy the directory (C:/Program Files/)Steam/SteamApps/<your account>/half-life/ns from an installed version to the same location in your Cedega Steam drive. After copying, change the permissions to the same permissions as the rest of the Steam files (chown and chmod). Steam will automatically detect the new directory and Natural Selection will show up under the "Play Games" window.
  • Strategies for improving Counter Strike frame rates should yield the same results for Natural Selection.


Natural Selection is a Half Life mod that blends first-person combat with real-time strategy.
