New Tut for making a 1.6 Counter strike server (HLDS)

Post by R2cool » Mon May 23, 2005 2:50 pm

I was writing this for some who wants to know and noobs.

What do you need:
Gentoox Home edition or Pro doesnt really mathers.
PuTTY for windows or any other platform.
FAST Internet :) (DUH)

What do you need to do:
Step 1: Okay if you have a keyboard you dont need putty and go to step 3, but if you dont have it start PuTTY.

Step 2: Now fill in the Hostname or the IP from the xbox into it and make sure SSH is checked then click on Open.

Step 3: now log in as Root. (Normally User = Root ; pass = xbox )

Step 4: Create a directory called CS or something else (command is mkdir ex: mkdir CS). Get into the directory by typing cd CS.

Step 5: Download the tools from steam to make a server for the lazy people type:
And wait untill its ready with downloading.

Step 6: give the file enough rights with "chmod a+x hldsupdatetool.bin" and then execute it by typing "./hldsupdatetool.bin".

Now comes the part that is taking long time because it has to download something about 500 megs. (so you need fast internet)

Step 7: make a new folder called CS2 or something else (mkdir CS2)
and then type "./steam -command update -game cstrike -dir [YOUR_DIR]"
(example: ./steam -command update -game cstrike -dir /CS/CS2/)
It wil first update the HLDS.
Type it again and it will download the cs server.
This will take a while.
Its finished when it says it fully updated the game.

Step 8: go to the new folder (ex cd CS2)
go to the cstrike folder cd Cstrike
and edit the file server.cfg with your server settings

Step 9: go to the CS2 directory again.
and now type:
"./hlds_run –secure –game cstrike +map de_dust +maxplayers 12 +port 27015"

and if you use puTTY type this:
"./hlds_run –secure –game cstrike +map de_dust +maxplayers 12 +port 27015 &"
and press CTRL + C .
You will get a Bash.
type "exit"
and just close the window.
