  • Does it cost money and how much and where do I buy it? I tried making a server on the menu where it says create multiplayer, but it didn't come up on the server list when I scanned it. [b]Edit:[/b] waiting...waiting....

  • Start up the server, and type the commands "sv_lan 0" and "heartbeat" in console, and then your server should be on the list.

It can be very dangerous to have a steady ROTFL fits. Its ok to have a frequent lol diet. About the topic can't you just choose the dedicated server from the 'tools' tab in steam.

  • That thing is crap. I tried using it and it has the most useless frikin instruction I've EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER used. 'First of all download hldsupdatetool from the VALVe webserver. Make a dir called srcds_l, and save hldsupdatetool in that dir and run it. (Check this out when you have an uncompress error.)' 'First edit (or create) srcds_l/cstrike/cfg/server.cfg like you want it to be. Now we are ready to run the srcds. ./srcds_run -console -game cstrike +map de_dust -maxplayers 16 -autoupdate and press enter. (-game hl2mp if it's a HL2DM server ofcourse) Your srcds is now up and running.'. HOW THE HELL CAN ANYONE DO THAT.

  • Just click create multiplayer, then set your settings, after that, click start game and you will join it.
  • What if you can't see the screen? Mine goes black after it loads...It's really bad...I see the Big G in the right corner, then, BOOM its black...

  • For god sake..you have to forward your ports.Or else your internet won't let you create your own server.

  • I have the same problem, i've opened ports 27000 to 27050 both udp and TCP, port 5273 tcp and 7002 tcp on both my router and firewall. I have tried sv_lan 0, heartbeat / setting it to a lan game then sv_lan 0 , heartbeat / setting my external ip unsing the "ip" command and just tried giving my external ip to my friends but they still can't connect, just get server not responding. I know it's not the firewall or router because I was able to host an internet game of hl2dm a few days ago which 2 of my friends and a few other people joined but i have not been able to get another hl2dm or any other game running. i've tried both dedicated servers and listen servers all with no luck! damn this spelling thing! :(

  • I don't know if this is considered advertising, an admin can delete this, but I'll rent anyone a server for $2.00 a slot. [b]Edit:[/b] That means any Steam game.

When I have those forwarded, my servers show up.

  • I'm pretty sure you have to pay for a server otherwise there would be millions of servers. When you click create server it just make a LAN server.

  • Your friends must have hamachi as well, and then they have to join your network. Then, when they all are on your network, your games should show up under the LAN tab of servers. If they can't find it, do this: Right click "My Network Places" Properties Up top, click the advanced menu (where file, edit, etc are) Click Advanced Settings... Move Hamachi to the top of the list (using those green arrows on the side). If [b]that[/b] doesn't work, tell your friends to go to steam and add your hamachi IP (the big number in the hamachi window) as a favorite server. If that still doesn't work, turn off all firewalls. If that still doesn't work, right click your friends' names in hamachi and click "Advanced", then in "Peer VPN alias", write the first three sets of numbers of your hamachi address, then their fourth set of numbers. So, if your address is 5.123.345.123 and your friends address is 5.312.543.32, then their "Peer VPN alias" should be 5.123.345.32. (Putting them on the same class c network as you).

  • This is propably most asked question here and most dumb, Everytime you start gmod you seem to miss the "create multiplayer server" text, No one ever sees it i think it should be written in red to make sure everyone would see it.
