A Few Questions On This...
I have just gotten into running a dedicated server since Goldeneye Source is out now and that's what I'm running. Anyway, my first question is how do I shut down a server correctly? Are there any commands I should run in the console?

I can actually run a server on a fresh install of the server software. And it will function just fine, but when I have to shut it down or my PC crashes, the server won't restart again. It just hangs loading the game mode, which, in this case, is Deathmatch. Is there any particular reason this would happen? If there are, how do I fix it?

Server OS: Windows XP 32-bit
Processor: Core 2 Duo E6400 @ 2.13gHz (2 cores)
Ram: 4GB
Game(s): Goldeneye Source
Start Up Command: C:\srcds\orangebox\srcds.exe -console -game gesource -ip -port 27015 -maxplayers 8 +map ge_stack_classic
Admin Mods: None at this time.

Any other tips for running a server would be much appreciated as well.
You can type in quit for a sort of clean shutdown, but I usually just terminate the process. Haven't seen a problem yet.
That answers one question, but the other one is more pressing since I can't run the server again unless I do a clean install because it hangs loading the gamemode.
I've never ran a 'Goldeneye Source' dedicated. I just know the engine, so yea.
From what I've been reading, it's literally the same as any other Source game. If there are any reasons that would any other Source game to hang when launching a dedicated server, specifically around the game mode, surely the fix would be the same?

If necessary, I can grab a screencap of the window and where it hangs and what it's done if it will be helpful.
Are you able to get a blank install working? With no addons or anything.
Yes, I can get one to run, but only on the first try. Every time after, hangs loading deathmatch no matter what I try to load.
