Batch files are little script files that tell Windows what to do. If srcds crashes, it will not restart like possible under Linux. (Linux uses a "Script" file too)
What we are going to do is make sure that as soon HLDS suddenly quits it will restart. First we open notepad. What we write in there is the following:
Command(s):
Code:
@echo off
cls
echo Protecting srcds from crashes...
echo If you want to close srcds and this script, close the srcds window and type Y depending on your language followed by Enter.
title srcds.com Watchdog
:srcds
echo (%time%) srcds started.
start /wait srcds.exe -console -game cstrike +map de_dust +maxplayers 16
echo (%time%) WARNING: srcds closed or crashed, restarting.
goto srcds

Replace the marked part with your own commandline and values. Save the file as C:\srcds\srcds.bat in notepad (NOT .txt) and next time click the srcds.bat file. If you need to close srcds, close the hlds window and press Y (depending on language) at the Terminate batch question. Please do note this does not work with crashes/errors that involve a Windows error box.

the name of the server is changed by:

hostname "hostname"
mzracer360.game-host.org:27015

srcds isn't the listen server, its the console deciated server, probably more better off than the steam client version.

I asusme its simular, but to be honest, im not quite sure. You can try modifying it to start like you would the steam version.
