Two Command Prompts pop up while server start?

It’s not that big of a deal, but how do I get the first CMD to close automatically or not pop up at all?

What are you using to launch the server?

I’d assume a batch file as I get the same issue.



srcds.exe -console -game garrysmod +map freespace_revolution +maxplayers 16 +hostname "The Abyss (Matt's PC!)" +host_workshop_collection <snip> -authkey <snip> -port 27015 -condebug


I think using the cmd command ‘START’ would probably fix it, but I’ve never really looked into it properly.

Yeah I just tried it. Put ‘START’ in front of srcds.exe in your batch file (assuming that’s what you use) and it’ll fix it.

Oh it had start /wait srcds.exe. Getting rid of /wait fixed it. Thanks!

Took me a while to find your post there, make sure in future to put your words after

. Also there’s a button at the top of the page to ‘mark as solved’. Anyway, you’re welcome!

I don’t know why it did that, I thought I did put it outside the quotation marks. I fixed it.
