Do you use the Steam Dedicated Tool? (In Steam - Tools) Smile

Install use HLDSupdateTool to install the server.

Yes, you can host more games with SRCDS tool(Valve games mostly) Smile

many thanks for the last post mate ... i have the server downloading and updating now ;0)
This website is actually for the SRCDS tool, not the Steam junk Toungue

Good idea switching over Big Grin
btw for any one interested ...

i downloaded the hldsupdatetool

i made a dir on my c: called srcds and copied the hldsupdate tool there ...

i ran this which installed the latest hldsupdatetool

i then opened a dos window changed dir to

cd program files\valve\hlserver

and from that dir i ran

hldsupdatetool -command update -game "tf" -dir c:\srcds

it crashed twice so i deleted the data ran the update command again and it worked ^^

the full TF2 DS DL was 2.47 gig so be prepared for a wait lol
Actually, this is exactly what it says on the main portion of this website in detail:

So no need to state what the right way is here Toungue
