need help setting up a gmod server
i try the setup instructions twice, they dident work, can someone give me a modified version of the instructions to set up a garry's mod server, and a bit more simpler?
1) Getting started with HLDSUpdatetool

First of all download hldsupdatetool from the VALVe webserver.
We save it to a temporary location and run it.
Navigate through the wizard like you are used to, which means next most of the time. When it asks you about the destination folder, click browse. Type c:\srcds in the textfield and click on OK. Finish the wizard.

Now click on Start, Run and type cmd . Type in the commands mentioned here and end a line with the enter key.
cd \srcds

The new version of HLDSUpdateTool will be downloaded now. As soon the cursor just blinks, press CTRL-C.

2) Downloading the files

Now we have an account, we can start downloading the files. This can take a few hours depending on the connection the server uses.
hldsupdatetool -command update -game "garrysmod" -dir C:\srcds
Do not forget to replace the login values with your own. If you want to install a Half-Life 2 Deathmatch server, use "hl2mp" for the game switch.
Go get yourself a cup of coffee.

3) Starting srcds

First edit (or create) c:\srcds\orangebox\garrysmod\cfg\server.cfg like you want it to be. Now we are ready to run the srcds.
Click Start, Run, type in the box there:
c:\srcds\srcds.exe -console -game garrysmod +map gm_flatgrass -maxplayers 16 -autoupdate
and press enter.
Looking for a game server? Visit and pick one up as low as $2.50 / mo!
