Hi, I'm interested in setting up a hidden dedicated server. I'm a co-leader of 63rdclan and we regulary try out other games/mods, we tried the zombiehorde mod recently, which was good for a short time but quickly got repetitious. Last weeks poll the hidden mod won so here I am. You beat goldeneye, hl2dmpro & hl2ctf. (I also voted for the hidden ;-))

I have a dedicated server box - dual xeon 10Mbit connection running windows server 2003 and I was wondering if there are any people here who run a dedicated server willing to add me to their msn to answer a few questions and lend a hand.

Thanks for your time, hope to hear from you soon.

Some good pointers can be found in the Technical Help forum, check the stickies especially. I dunno why they are there and not here :)

Thanks for your quick response.
I did look in there but it's a little... chaotic. :)

I want to run the hidden through a desktop shortcut. For example here is the ZombieHorde server target line.
C:\63rdzombiH\hl2server\srcds.exe -console -game cstrike +port 27060 -tickrate 100 +fps_max 600 +maxplayers 32 +map de_dust2
And when this server needs updating I use this .bat file to manually update it.
date/t
time/t
hldsupdatetool -command update -game "Counter-Strike Source" -dir c:\63rdzombiH\hl2server
time/t
@pause
This is what I am aiming to do with the hidden mod. To have a standalone dedicated server on our box at the datacentre.


So for simplicity I have a fresh install of SRCDS in C:\hiddenmod I have updated hl2mp so the directory structure looks like this.
C:\hiddenmod
\bin
\hl2
\hl2mp
\platform

My questions are
1.Where exactly do you extract the hidden mod too?
2.What exactly would my target line on the shortcut be?
3.Does thehidden fully support mani and the decal feature in mani?
4.I have other questions about hidden/Iris skins but they can wait...
5.Do you have a hot single sister?

I thought it would be simpler to msn all this but here you go! :D

1.c:\program files\steam\SteamApps\SourceMods\

2."C:\Program Files\Steam\steam.exe" -applaunch 220 -game "c:\program files\steam\SteamApps\SourceMods\hidden" (That's mine anyway.)

3. I do believe so.

He means for hosting a dedicated server, not running the game. ;)

use the following for command line :

C:\hiddenmod\srcds.exe -console -game hidden +port 27060 -tickrate 100 +fps_max 600 +maxplayers 9 +map hdn_docks

date/t
time/t
hldsupdatetool -command update -game "Half Life 2" -dir c:\hiddenmod
time/t
@pause

answers to questions :

1 - C:\hiddenmod\hidden
2 - see above
3 - yes, with some tweaking - see M_C's guide to mani (sticky)
4 - ask away

hldsupdatetool -command update -game "Half Life 2" -dir c:\hiddenmod

** 'game' options for Source DS Install:

"Counter-Strike Source"
"dods"
"hl2mp"

I use hl2mp but I don't play CS or DOD either.

I'm back.

Right. I got it running fine but I cant Join it.
You can see it at 84.234.17.71:27060

I got the message docks.bsp differs from the server.

I was unable to download the B2a Server Update from DeCoy (Lincoln University)
I got a Winrar archive error message.

Thats probably the problem.

What do you think?

That's the problem, you need the b2a update too. Try a yahoo search for that filename, or PM the mods until somebody fixes the ftp's. :D

I'll be getting it sorted tomorrow.

A search finds b2a hosted on a game site or two if you don't want to wait. ;)

I fixed it with the help of a chap called "EGG"

Cheers EGG

I uploaded the maps folder from my client to the dedicated server and it works fine. There is 7-10 seconds of distorted ambient sounds and lagg upon joining. After that everything is Great.

63rd's London server is now open for the pigsticker!
