Found this on a CD at a cyber-cafe joint my friend works at...I don't know much about it. The protocol version is different than the one in the thread that is locked. See screenshot below, if this is indeed pre-retail and not illegal let me know and I will upload it. Haven't played it yet, will do so after work. Look at the release date and build number in the console screen, they are indeed different than the one in the other thread.
I called up my buddy he said it's the beta that was given out to cyber-cafes, with some extra maps that were downloaded from servers and such. He told me that CSS was released on a much later date, Oct 21 2004, when this build was released Sep 29 2004. The protocol version on this is v5 when he said that retail has a protocol version of v7. I'll upload later if you guys are sure this is beta.
ALSO: Build is alot smaller than retail.
ALSO: Maps appear unfinished, various obvious lighting/texturing errors.

Actually, it was the 140804 beta which was given out to cybercafe owners. The 071004 beta was given out also to Counter-Strike: Condition Zero owners.
Do you know where to find them? Especially the 140804, because I'm download a file named "CS_Source_final_full_071004-dma.exe" at 30kb/s from BitTorrent with tracker "http://open.tracker.thepiratebay.org/announce". I'm not sure if it's the beta though...
