SRCDS Steam group

Little help here pls
Hi all,

Can someone tell me where i can download Standalone HL2 server. I looked up to 100 sites but notting found yet.

I hope someone knows a site were i can download it.

well guy.. your at the right sight.. on the very top of this forum. click the button that says tutorials.. and that will tell you exactly how, and what to download. after clicking on the appropriate operating system of course.
I think don't understand what i'm looking for. Look you have 3 kind of servers. 1 Ftp server 2 Listen steam server 3 Standalone HL server. The 3e is wat i want. I know how to install it. But not where to download it.

If anyone knows where pls tell me
The easiest way:
Click on the Home button on the top
On Home-page choose ur os and download.
U can only download Standalone-server the listenserver is part of the client-game u have to buy

FTP-server has nothing to do with srcds
lol yea. click that. they will have a link to download something called hldsupdatetool, and it will tell you how to download srcds with that, and that is also how you update it. i understand exactly what you mean, you just have to read stuff a little. and obviously you don't know how to install it, because that is also how you download it. its the same step. and only 1 step. its pretty simple.
Not so simple as u think. I have download the HLdsUpdate tool and get this strange little error:

"Cannot open blob archive file: CMultiFieldBlob<mem-mapped file>: Failed to open file."

Look how simple it is now. Tell me how i work it out now. I have already deleted the blob and tried it again. I also tried it with shortcutting but still doesn't work.
So how simple u wanna get it? Not this way indeed. Í'm using windows xp home edition with SP2.

And yea i know how to install it. On this problem i have here i wanted to get it easier like a compleet instal of the server.
Follow these steps even if you already did some of them.

1) Create a directory

Make sure it is totally empty.

2) Close steam and any hl/hl2 game you may be running on your pc.

3) Get the hlds update tool.
Save it to c:\hl2server

4) Open a dos box and go to c:\hl2server
by typing cd \hl2server <enter>

5) Run HldsUpdateTool.exe
It will create another file in c:\hl2server

Now if you want a source server type this in exactly.
HldsUpdateTool.exe -command update -game "Counter-Strike Source" -dir c:\hl2server

It will take a while to dl the almost 1Gig of stuff.

Now start up your server by 2x clicking on c:\hl2server\srcds.exe
You will get the gui startup this way.

If you prefer to have a batch file that will auto restart the server on crash create this .bat file and run it.
title Watchdog
echo (%time%) srcds started.
start /wait srcds.exe -console -game cstrike -autoupdate +map de_dust +maxplayers 32
echo (%time%) WARNING: srcds closed or crashed, restarting.
goto srcds

I just did those exact steps about 2 hours ago and my source server is running fine....

(This should be a sticky)
lol.. theres no need to sticky that, cuz you just said what the tutorial says..
