    Default Dedicated Servers

    create a shortcut and use as the command line...
    Code:
    -applaunch 215 -console -game "<location of your sourcemods>\hidden" +map hdn_stalkyard
    for instance - my local test server is

    Code:
    "G:\Program Files\Steam\Steam.exe" -applaunch 215 -console -dev -game "G:\program files\steam\steamapps\sourcemods\hidden" +map hdn_stalkyard
    Sorry, I should have made that clear to start with...

    81.99.104.210:27015 - there's a temporary server here for now - it's running off my machine, it's probably good for 3 - 4 outsiders to join... Though not tested it!

    Im doing this a easier way, Downloading srcds via hldsupdatetool.exe from steampowered. Then copy the whole Hidden folder to C:\srcds ( C:\srcds\Hidden <== should be like that ) then click on the srcds.exe file in C:\srcds and choose Hidden: Source as the game

    ======
    Tutorial
    ======
    1) Download hldsupdatetool.exe from steampowered
    http://www.steampowered.com/download...updatetool.exe

    2) Once installed, copy hldsupdatetool.exe to a newly created folder for the srcds ( C:\srcds )

    3) Updating Server: Go to Start >> Run >> type in the run box "cmd" with out the ""

    4) when the cmd window opens up type "chdir C:\srcds" without ""

    5) If you have a account for dedicated server type: hldsupdatetool.exe -command update -game "Counter-Strike: Source" -dir . -username UsernameHere -password PasswordHere

    6) Sit back and watch it download dedicated server.

    7) Once its downloaded it will say HLDS upto Date

    8) Copy Hidden folder from the rar file to "C:\srcds" and click srcds.exe to run the server, Remember to choose Hidden: Source as the game.
