Ok, I’ve been told I need something called “srcds” installed to allow me to play gmod online with my friend on my own server (because all the other servers on the list are either RP, foreign, or have thousands of addons that take years to download.
What is srcds?
Do I need it?
Where can I get it?
How long does it take to set up a server?
How easy/hard is it?
Why is hosting a simple game so damn difficult?
