SRCDS Source Server Installer V3.9
Hey. A while ago I made this SRCDS source server installer and management tool which I thought would be really useful for people who are inexperianced with SRCDS or who might want a system with file management and crash recovery Smile. Bellow is the information on it and where to download it.

If you get stuck I even made a youtube video showing how to use all the programs:

Source Server Installer


This server tool was designed with the user in mind, and allows he/she to create source based servers quickly and painlessly.
This server management system offers the ability to create, update, edit and operate 25 Source servers at any one time.
The server tool suite allows users to avoid having to directly input the hldsupdatetool command lines and variables, and comes
with additional features to increase the functionality and ease of use for the server tool user.

Features include:

- An easy to use Text based interface for users
- Crash Recovery
- Custom update settings
- Extra content installation for garrysmod based servers
- Automatic organisation and installation of Server folders
- Installation of pre made server.cfg files


Place the "Source Dedicated Server V3.9" folder in any place on your computer where you wish to/have space to install servers
Start the "Create Server" program and follow the instruction, please read them carefully!

Creating, Updating and Managing a server:

To create a new server for a supported source game simply run the "Create Server" program and read the on screen instructions
To update a server to be synchronised with the latest software version simply run the "Update Server" and select the desired server
To run a installed server simply run "Run Server" and follow the on screen instructions
To install new content for Garrysmod, simply run the "Garrysmod Additional Content Installer"

Diagnosis of Errors:

Please read the "Diagnostic" file in User Documentation found in this tool suite, which offers answers to a wide range of problems
If the answers given wern't helpful/wern't there, please feel free to contact me at
