DarkRP finishing off Tutorial.

Your next steps…

You’ve nearly finished your garrys mod DarkRP server but you need another thing to run
it. Counter-Strike source, don’t worry. You don’t have to buy the game!

Just follow these steps to add the Counter-Strike source content to your server!

XP and Console Server:

  1. Type cmd into run. (Start/Run)
  2. Using the cd command find your server directory.
    E.G C:/srcds
  3. Type the following command into the console:
    hldsupdatetool -command update -game “Counter-Strike Source” -dir C:\srcds\orangebox

Vista and Console Server:

  1. Find Command Prompt and run it as an admin by right-clicking and
    selecting Run As Admin…
  2. Using the cd command find your server directory.
    E.G C:/srcds
  3. Type the following command into the console:
    hldsupdatetool -command update -game “Counter-Strike Source” -dir C:\srcds\orangebox

The reason I actually made this Tutorial

For this question that sombody’s sent me:

Q: I installed counter-strike source but then my server messed up and just repeating
an error message.
A: Simply delete every file in your orangebox/bin folder then re-update your server.
Normally your server should have a batch file. Here’s mine…



@echo off
echo This will take a long time, I would recommend you go do something else.
echo Updating/installing Garrysmod
hldsupdatetool -command update -game "garrysmod" -dir C:\srcds
rem echo Updating/installing CS:S
rem hldsupdatetool -command update -game "Counter-Strike Source" -dir C:\srcds
rem echo Updating/installing dods
rem hldsupdatetool -command update -game "dods" -dir C:\srcds
rem echo Updating/installing hl2mp
rem hldsupdatetool -command update -game "hl2mp" -dir C:\srcds
rem echo Updating/installing tf
rem hldsupdatetool -command update -game "tf" -dir C:\srcds
rem echo Updating/installing sin
rem hldsupdatetool -command update -game "sin" -dir C:\srcds
rem echo Updating/installing ship
rem hldsupdatetool -command update -game "ship" -dir C:\srcds
rem echo Update/installation Complete
 echo Installed to c:\srcds\
echo Your server is now ready to use!
echo To add extra addons or maps etc. place them in c:\srcds\orangebox\garrysmod\
echo This installer can also update necessary server files, so it is recommended that you run it often.
pause


As you probably know this script can be used for updating your entire server and installing
one from scratch.

Another question:
Q: My server sometimes crashes and I’m never there to keep it running!
A: Use the following script, this will run a gmod server plus
restart it if anything goes wrong!



@echo off
cls
echo Protecting srcds from crashes...
echo If you want to stop protecting just close this window!
echo By deathtime38 (Facepunch: KillerLUA)
title Crash Protect - V2
:srcds
echo (%time%) server was started.
srcds.exe -console -game garrysmod +map rp_downtown_v2 +maxplayers 8 +gamemode "DarkRP" +port 27015
echo (%time%) WARNING: Server crashed, restarting server!
goto srcds


The previous version of this batch file will not work, I have just recently updated
a typing error. :slight_smile:
