To Install the server you just have to extract the .rar file you you C directory. It's vital that it gets
extracted to the C directory, or else you can't update it (wich isessential). when that is done you
have a folder at C:\CSS Server containing all the server files and what not.
Next you want to add yourself as admin and here's how you do:
go to C:\CSSServer\cstrike\cfg\mani_admin_plugin
Open up adminlist.txt configuration
Follow the instructions given in the text file
if you're not sure what your steam ID is, go to a random game online and type status in theconsole.
Server settings can be configured in C:\CSS Server\cstrike\cfg in the Server.cfg file.
The last thing you need to do in order for everything to work is portforwarding. www.portforward.comis a great website with info on close to every router out there on portforwarding. for counter strike
you wanna forward ports 27011 in both TCP and UDP as well as port 27015 (also TCP and UDP)Updating the server:
Before you run the server for the first time, it's important that you run the update. Chances are
that the game may have been updated in the time this has been on tpb.
Toupdate you simply run the Server Update shortcut found at C:\CSS Server
Starting up the server:
Now all we need to do is start up the server.
To do this we need to make a shortcut for the srcds.exefound in C:\CSS Server.
When that is done you need to right click that shortcut and go to properties.
Here we need to add a little something in the "target" field. It should say something like:C:\GMOD\srcds.exe
we want to add -console -game Cstrike +map de_dust2 -maxplayers 24 -autoupdate +port 27015 -tickrate 100
into the target field, so now it says:
C:\GMOD\srcds.exe -console -gameCstrike +map de_dust2 -maxplayers 24 -autoupdate +port 27015 -tickrate 100
you can go ahead and change these settings, if you want more/less players or another map to play. In any case
your server is...
