So basically I set everything up for the portfowarding and the server files. I don’t have addons yet, but you know I’ll do that last. I can’t launch the server from the start.bat file, but I can from the srcds.exe file. When I launch it from the srcds.exe, I can’t find it anywhere in the server lists, but I can use the console command “connect <ip>” and I am able to connect. With the start.bat file, I try connecting but it never works. Yes, I did port forward with all the ports I could find for gmod, yes I did port forward my ip and such. I also have some other issues as well.
I can’t change the gamemode (I’m trying to open a deathrun server)
Server says “missing map <map name>, disconnecting” if it is on a map except gm_construct (yes I have the map installed)
I can’t use the authkey for people to download the addons, sadly.
That basically concludes everything. (P.S, I own an apple router, so portfowarding is a lot different, but I know how to do it.)
