Dedicated Server Help & Advice
« on: September 06, 2010, 06:24:55 am »

Hi everyone,

I would like to setup a server to use for playing GES with people (mainly friends far away).

I have ready a bunch of tutorials on the web but i'm not getting anywhere - i keep facing various errors.
This is one of the tutorials i followed http://dev.goldeneyesource.com/wiki/index.php/Installing_Server but when i tried running the hldsupdatetool.exe command it just seemed to stop halfway thru?


I have a computer which I can dedicate just for this task so if anyone can help me start from scratch so I dont miss any steps then I would be very grateful.

I have 2 questions first tho. Would I be better using XP or linux (ubuntu pref) for this task.
Also would I need 2 steam accounts and 2 copies of HL2 for this - one to 'serve' and one to play from my other computer?

Thanks

Aaron

Please refer to the latest version of the install guide here: http://wiki.goldeneyesource.net/index.php/Beta3_Server_Install (although the title says Beta 3, it's actually for Beta 4)

Furthermore I think you only need 2 accounts not 2 copys of a Source game, but I'm not sure. (I believe the client operating as the dedicated server shouldn't need to buy the game)

I have never hosted a dedicated server myself, I'm just trying to help. ;-)

Renamed: http://wiki.goldeneyesource.net/index.php/Beta4_Server_Install

I don't know why the general public has access to the "dev" wiki... its outdated and not useful

There are a few "stupid questions" but i don't see this as one.. :D

http://halflife2.filefront.com/file/Goldeneye_Source_Beta_4;110929 - one link i've seen used before.
[i actually don't see an "official" beta 4 install files link...?]

Batch file looks for updates, so when it closes it means nothing has been updated.

If you want you can add me on Steam and I can help set up your server.

Even though, this thread is really old,
I can't find a tutorial on hosting a Goldeneye Source 4.2 Server
All the links lead to dead page

Like this one
http://wiki.geshl2.com/ge/s_v4.1_server_install

I really want to host a dedicated server around my area.

Any ideas??
