SRCDS Steam group

Server doesn't accept motd.txt?
after the new Server update my motd.txt doesn't work.
I got this simple code:

Quote:<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "">
<title>Cstrike MOTD</title>

<b>Welcome to Kevin's CS:S Server</b>
This server also supports deathmatch and surf maps!
This server is protected through VAC and SteamBans Detox Anti-Cheat
Please be nice!
No cheating!
No spaming!


But all I see is an empty page.

"Restricted the range of commands that servers can cause clients to execute when closing the MOTD."
I saw this in the release notes of the update.

What do I have to do to make it work?

When I only write simple text without any html codes it works.
Your html tags are incorrect. Its <html> not <Html>

That doesnt matter, i could use <HtMl> if i would like to...

@Kepa132 - Try launching your motd in a web browser. Also, i would recommend you to upload the motd to a website, then you would only need to write the link to the motd file in your motd.txt .

Just use the original motd.txt from the cstrike folder, and build it out Smile
If we're talking about a CS source server you must be sure that you launch the right application. On my Linux server i had to remap everything to the orangebox subfolder.


Users can choose whether they want to see plain or formatted text.
It might take a server restart for the changes to take effect.

In the old HTML 4.01 age developers and browsers didn't care about upper- and lowercase tags, it accepted everything. Modern markup such as XHTML and HTML5 requires all tags to be lower-case and closed.
Furthermore the <center> tag is does not exist, one should use <body align="center"> or <div align="center"> in HTML 4.01 and CSS (That's Cascading Style Sheets, not CS Source here) for XHTML or HTML5 code.
Keep in mind that all of this is rendered in a negligent webbrowser named Internet Explorer.
