[HOW TO?] Solve "Server Restart Needed" in HLDS (CS 1.6)

If you are playing Counter Strike (cs 1.6) online by making a dedicated server on your LAN/Internet using Half-Life Dedicated Server (HLDS) then you might have faced the problem of Server Restart prompt.
It is basically a prompt to update your server; however it won't work even if you let it restart. HLDSUpdateTool also doesn't help in this case.

The prompt is like this:
Server Restart Needed
Your server is out of date, and will not be listed on the master server until you restart.
Do you wish to shutdown now?
OK cancel

If you are frustrated with this problem then you have came to right place.
I have a 100% working trick and I have successfully tested it on my system.
Just scroll down for the trick.
  • If you are facing this error then you have to solve it's purpose.
  • It urges for a Master Server record, so we will provide it.
  • In this trick we will enlist the master server entries so that HLDS can fetch it and the warning won't be shown anymore.

Step 1.

All you have to do is just create a file named setmaster.cfg (if it is already there in your game folder then overwrite it)

To create a file right click your mouse button and go to new option and then select text document.
Then rename it to setmaster.cfg

It will prompt if you want to rename it, click Yes.
Remember and be careful to remove .txt extension and change it with .cfg


Step 2.

After creating the file add the entries as shown below:
setmaster add 69.28.151.162
setmaster add 69.28.151.162:27010
setmaster add 69.28.151.162:27011
