PostSubject: Starting a Server   Sun Dec 16, 2012 6:35 pm

There are two ways to start the server, either by using the fancy Steam GUI or the Console.

Which method you choose depend on the type of server. If it will be a temporary server then use the GUI for easy setup, otherwise, stick with the console, it uses less resources. Select one of the two options:

1. Starting via Steam GUI
Browse to C:\Program Files\Valve\HLServer and double click the hlds.exe icon. A menu will open and everything else should be self explanatory. If you choose the Steam GUI there is no need to read any further, you have successfully installed Steam, simply select your server start-up options using the GUI tabs. To start the server using the console method, continue reading.

2. Starting via Console
Browse to C:\Program Files\Valve\HLServer and right click hlds.exe then select Create Shortcut now right click that new Shortcut you just created and select Properties

Counter-Strike command line options

Below are a list of commands you can enter in the target field to start the server.

Initializes console mode

Automatically update the server when Steam updates are released

-game <game name>
The HLDS mod you want to run

+maxplayers <number of players>
Amount of players to allow

+map <map name>
The map to start the server with

-port <port number>
The port number the server should run on. Can be left out if you plan on using the default port (27015).

-ip <ipaddress>
Useful if you have multiple IPs and want to assign a particular IP to the server.

Done. Very Happy Have fun with your new server!
