OK, i reccomend that you home host them. First, if theres a error in there servers. Your paying, and your not getting what you want. So you wasteing your money…heres the instructrions to how to download it and open ports:
ok first goto here:
Now where it says “From The Valve Servers” thats in blue. Click onit, when a download box apears. Press Open. When its done follow the instructions and INSTALL IT TO “c:\srcds”. First make sure you have atleast 7.8 gbs of space.
Now go to startmenu\run and type cmd. When the CMD box comes up type “cd \srcds”. After that comes up. Type
“hldsupdatetool -command update -game “Counter-Strike Source” -dir C:\srcds”.
(Or somthing else in the place as CSS. You would put garrysmod,tf,ect.)
Now go out for lunch or somthing because it will take awhile!
When its done close it. Right Click on desktop new
ew text document. Open it and put:
c:\srcds\srcds.exe -console -game cstrike +map de_dust -maxplayers 16 -autoupdate
The Cstrike u would put garrysmod, or TF, depends on what game you downloaded. Then de_dust, put your server map. If u have Gmod u would put gm_flatgrass, or gm_construct. TF, u would put a map name aswell. Maxplayers is howmany players u want to alow on your server. If u have a system Below 1 ghz. Put somthing below 5. If its in the orangebox folder put c:\srcds\orangebox\srcds.exe -console -game garrysmod +map gm_flatgrass -maxplayers 16 -autoupdate
Then save it as “Srcds.bat” to desktop.
Now, make a new text document. And put commands init. Like if u have Gmod downloaded. You put:
hostname “Your Servers Name”
Now go to save as and save it as “server.cfg” with the quotes. Then save it to:
NOW FOR THIS TO WORK U NEED OPEN PORTS!
27015 - 27020
If u dont no how to open ports go to http://PortFoward.com
Look for your router, click on it, and the next page look for Half Life 2 steam server. Follow the instructions. REMEMBER 27005, 27015 - 27020 TCP AND UDP
Then Open up your Batchfile. Then YAY your done. If u cant fiqure this out, I dont no.
NOTE: FINDING A SERVER PREDOWNLOADED USALLY CONTAINS VIRUSES! DONT BOTHER WITH THOSE UNLESS U SCAN THEM FIRST!!
