Server Not Starting DarkRP

Well here’s an easy one. Forgive me, I’m getting back into the server hosting game, so I forgot a lot of stuff.
Here’s what I have in the batch file:

C:\server\darkrp\orangebox\srcds.exe -console -game garrysmod +sv_defaultgamemode DarkRP +map rp_oviscity_gmc4 +maxplayers 32 -port 27015 -autoupdate

Path to DarkRP Folder: C:\server\darkrp\orangebox\garrysmod\gamemodes\darkrp

What happens is it’s just starting as a sandbox server.

 +sv_defaultgamemode "darkrp"

Didn’t help.

Well, you could just use changegamemode rp_oviscity_gmc4 DarkRp. You could even make a simple cron job to do it for you every time the server restarts. I had this issue with one of my gamemodes as well so I made a cron job to do it for me :slight_smile:

Cron job? This is on a Windows 2008 server.

Could the problem be that the directory folder is called darkrp

No. The gamemode switch looks in /gamemodes. I have always used this folder naming convention.

try +sv_defaultgamemode darkrp

“sv_defaultgamemode “DarkRP””
sv_gamemode darkrp

put both in you’re cfg and run the server

hey I’m getting an error that says “maps/rp_flatgrass_final.bsp’ size exceeds net_maxfilesize limit <16 MB>” in the console whenever someone trys to connect
