Question: Is it possible to run a Gmod server in dos?

My question is (as stated above): Is it possible to run a Gmod server in dos?

I am asking this because when you dont have to run windows you can really dedicated your pc/server to Gmod and get the best performance.

reply’s:

No, never.
The closest you can get of dos would be linux.

  1. Reverse engineer SrcDS
  2. Make MS-DOS program to handle the protocol
  3. ???
  4. Profit!

…anyway,

No, it can’t be seriously done.

But what if you would start windows in console mode (or something).

You can run SRCDS in Windows Server Core 2008

Windows Server Core 2008 == Striped down windows, with no gui and so on.

Oke, thanks for that
