The ` key in US layout. Other layouts you may need to map it to another key, such as by adding it to your startup options:

+bind "key" "toggleconsole"

Or autoexec.cfg:

bind "key" "toggleconsole"

Note that these key binds will only work wen you've actually loaded a level and are in-game (no menu up), because Source. The default, hardcoded keybind is special in that respect.

The developer console also needs to be enabled in the keyboard advanced settings, but it sounds like you've already done that.

You didn't state your graphics card or RAM.... those are both important factors too.

An old Core 2 Quad might work "OK" but you may need to lower settings. GE:S is more demanding than HL2 because it has larger and more detailed environments. Even HL2 today is more demanding than it was in 2004 due to engine upgrades.

The reason you see it max out a single core is because this version of the engine (2007) is largely single-threaded. Multithreaded rendering is hidden behind a cvar, mat_queue_mode 2, but is unstable.

I am running a quad core with at least 2.6 GHz (Core 2 Quad 9600) and it only maxes out one core. The other cores are not utilized very much.
Why is that that is does not use all cores?
The hardware specs are way above anything that was available at the time when HL2 was released.

Thanks for your reply. But how can I access the developer console? I tried everything and cannot get it to open.

You should still be able to connect directly by IP, by typing "connect ip:port" into the developer console.

For offline play you may need unique Steam accounts for each player, I'm not sure. You'll probably need to launch the server with the -insecure launch parameter and set "sv_lan  1" to prevent problems with offline play.

Offline play without any sort of internet connection is not something I've tested but in theory it might work.

What are your specs?

Have you tried this solution?

My PC should handle GES without a problem. CPU and GPU are not maxed out at all, but GES stutters while other modern games run fine.

What can I do?
Why is GES so "demanding"?

Best wishes.

Hi at all,

I just set up 4 new windows 10 PCs with a switch and static 192.168.1.X IPs for each machine.
Unfortunately GE:Source can not find any PC even when I tick on "Via LAN" in server setup.

What am I doing wrong? Not even the "developer mode" worked when I tried to activate it.
When I tried online server setup, it shows up under LAN, but with a ping of 21ms which is clearly NOT LAN.
When I use steam in offline mode or when I disconnect the internet cable, it does not work again.

I simply want to play in LAN without internet. Can you please guide me? There is no router involved, nothing. Just simple LAN on Windows 10.

Best wishes!

EDIT 2: I've got things working!

In short, I stood up a dedicated server on Windows, had that working fine, and simply copied my entire server folder to my linux box in AWS, then ran the server there, this seems to have got things working... My server now correctly shows up in the server browser, and is a VAC secured server. Thank you so much to Soupcan and Kraid for taking the time out of their days to look into this for me.

The main take away is sometimes its quicker to just blow away what you have and start again (even doing this multiple times).  ;D

EDIT: Ignore this post, after I tried recreating what I was seeing in these screenshots with someone else, the results were inconsistent, but tended towards being able to connect to Valve servers and get VAC status. In addition the server was viewable in the server browser... Still have my problem with my AWS server, but am continuing with a few different experiments, one of which includes copying the server folder that I was running on my Windows desktop to my AWS Linux box and seeing if it runs without issue.


I did spin up a server on my personal windows desktop just to see what happened.

Low and behold, it appears in the server browser... Until I close the steam application.

In any of the following scenarios, I see the following in the server console of my personal windows desktop

 - Steam desktop application is running, and logged in in online mode
 - Steam desktop application is running, and in offline mode
 - Steam desktop application is running, and I'm simply sat at the login screen

Server console in the above 3 scenarios:

If the Steam desktop application is closed down completely, I get the below in my server console, and presumably, cannot see the server in server browser.

Things like this make me feel as though something else is required here to get the srcds.exe communicating so that I get a VAC server which appears in server browser.
