How to make a development server (DarkRP)

Hey I was wondering how I can make a DarkRP development server client side for myself so I can make sure everything works properly before moving it to my main server. If anyone has a link to a resource or can explain I would be greatful, I have tried doing it on singleplayer before but it doesn’t quite work like others can with theirs or I am just doing it wrong. :slight_smile:

sv_lan 1 in server.cfg?

This batch file might help as well (place in start.bat where srcds.exe is located):

@echo off
echo Protecting srcds from crashes...
echo If you want to close srcds, close the srcds window and type Y depending on your language followed by Enter.
title Server Watchdog
echo (%time%) srcds started.
start /wait srcds.exe -console -game garrysmod +gamemode darkrp +map gm_construct +maxplayers 16
echo (%time%) WARNING: srcds closed or crashed, restarting.
goto srcds

replace gm_construct with whatever map you’re using
