TF2 Gameinfo.txt Error
When startup my TF2 server, I'm hit immediately with an error that says KEYVALUES Error: LoadingFromBuffer: missing <in file tf2/gameinfo.txt

[Image: 10f6z4m.jpg]

This error started to occur after I checked for updates with the HLDS updater. The shortcut was
Code:
C:\SRCDS\Updater\HldsUpdateTool.exe -command update -game tf -verify_all -dir c:\SRCDS
I then removed the -verify_all and tried to re-update, but it still gave me the same error.

The gameinfo.txt file I'm using now. I edited a line so that it would boot with MetaMod:Source. I used that to install Mani Admin mod for map voting.

Code:
"GameInfo"
{
    game    "Team Fortress 2"
    gamelogo 1
    type multiplayer_only
    nomodels 1
    nohimodel 1
    nocrosshair 0
    hidden_maps
    {
        "test_speakers"        1
        "test_hardware"        1
    }
    nodegraph 0


    FileSystem
    {
        SteamAppId                440        // This will mount all the GCFs we need (240=CS:S, 220=HL2).
        ToolsAppId                211        // Tools will load this (ie: source SDK caches) to get things like materials\debug, materials\editor, etc.
        
        //
        // The code that loads this file automatically does a few things here:
        //
        // 1. For each "Game" search path, it adds a "GameBin" path, in <dir>\bin
        // 2. For each "Game" search path, it adds another "Game" path in front of it with _<langage> at the end.
        //    For example: c:\hl2\cstrike on a french machine would get a c:\hl2\cstrike_french path added to it.
        // 3. For the first "Game" search path, it adds a search path called "MOD".
        // 4. For the first "Game" search path, it adds a search path called "DEFAULT_WRITE_PATH".
        //

        //
        // Search paths are relative to the base directory, which is where hl2.exe is found.
        //
        // |gameinfo_path| points at the directory where gameinfo.txt is.
        // We always want to mount that directory relative to gameinfo.txt, so
        // people can mount stuff in c:\mymod, and the main game resources are in
        // someplace like c:\program files\valve\steam\steamapps\<username>\half-life 2.
        //
        SearchPaths
        {
            GameBin                     |gameinfo_path|addons/metamod/bin
            Game                |gameinfo_path|.
            Game                tf
            Game                |all_source_engine_paths|hl2
        }
    }
}
            tf
            Game                |all_source_engine_paths|hl2
        }
    }
}

My server.cfg file in case it helps.

RE: TF2 Gameinfo.txt Error
Remove the last 5 lines of your gameinfo.txt

i.e. it should look like this:
Code:
"GameInfo"
{
    game    "Team Fortress 2"
    gamelogo 1
    type multiplayer_only
    nomodels 1
    nohimodel 1
    nocrosshair 0
    hidden_maps
    {
        "test_speakers"        1
        "test_hardware"        1
    }
    nodegraph 0


    FileSystem
    {
        SteamAppId                440        // This will mount all the GCFs we need (240=CS:S, 220=HL2).
        ToolsAppId                211        // Tools will load this (ie: source SDK caches) to get things like materials\debug, materials\editor, etc.
        
        //
        // The code that loads this file automatically does a few things here:
        //
        // 1. For each "Game" search path, it adds a "GameBin" path, in <dir>\bin
        // 2. For each "Game" search path, it adds another "Game" path in front of it with _<langage> at the end.
        //    For example: c:\hl2\cstrike on a french machine would get a c:\hl2\cstrike_french path added to it.
        // 3. For the first "Game" search path, it adds a search path called "MOD".
        // 4. For the first "Game" search path, it adds a search path called "DEFAULT_WRITE_PATH".
        //

        //
        // Search paths are relative to the base directory, which is where hl2.exe is found.
        //
        // |gameinfo_path| points at the directory where gameinfo.txt is.
        // We always want to mount that directory relative to gameinfo.txt, so
        // people can mount stuff in c:\mymod, and the main game resources are in
        // someplace like c:\program files\valve\steam\steamapps\<username>\half-life 2.
        //
        SearchPaths
        {
            GameBin                     |gameinfo_path|addons/metamod/bin
            Game                |gameinfo_path|.
            Game                tf
            Game                |all_source_engine_paths|hl2
        }
    }
}
