Hey all

I assist with the ongoings of a euro GSP and would appreciate some expert help and assistance.

Currently ran hldsupdatetool.bin and downloading the files, ( server related files only ) ,

My question is. is it as straight forward as for example cod4 or cod5, where once you have the files its a simple command line execute where it links to the server.cfg or is there more to this.

I am seeing some formality changes to the map structure, and from what i can see, .dsr files are in need of recipies, in order to properly function along with a playlist map cycle of some sort...

This by default i assume doesnt come naturally with the files once you have downloaded them from steam.

in some respects yes

however you need to bere in mind that you not have dspl and dsr files as default configs also

the dspl file gets executed from the server.cfg using

seta sv_maprotation "default"

and then the dspl file is then set to run the DSR file using the follow format

map name,gamemode,weighting

so for a random map running in snd with a high probability of being the next mode and type would look like

*,SD_default,1000
*,TDM_default,1

the above is a playlist example like you would have in say ground war playlist or team tactical

if you just wanted snd to run you would just set

*,SD_default,1000

moving on there is also more configuration that can be done to customise the game setup ie hardcore softcore weapon restrictions etc etc these are done in the DSR file but i'm afraid that other than opening it in notepad or any txt editor and looking through the settings there is no real easy way to set this.

however with that said you can actually access the game and setup a DSR file there and have it executed by the dspl file

i.e,
say you create it as custommode and install it to your admin folder then your line in the dspl file would look like this

*,custommode,1000

hope this helps

yes absolutely

i found out that you also needed the steam.dll file directly with the game dedi servers, here is the recent output so far however its still not showing due to a conflict i think.

it may actually be showing and you cannot see it because your host name is generic

do you have set or seta for the host name also i've added ip to hlsw and it looks like the port might be conflicting with other games that you are running

I have changed ports over 4 times, also the name i changed twice, but normally a minor conflict with simply redirect like it does with ports.

seta is suppose to be the proper perameter, set was a mw3 mistake on there part.
