• Source Dedicated Server won't run

  • I installed Source Dedicated Server via the command prompt. When I tried to run it by going to Start>Run and entering C:\srcds\orangebox\srcds.exe, I get a loading icon next to my mouse, then nothing. Anyone know how to fix this?

  • srcds.exe -console -game garrysmod +map [map name] +maxplayers 16 So you would put in... C:\srcds\orangebox\srcds.exe srcds.exe -console -game garrysmod +map [map name] +maxplayers 16 Don't forget to put your selected map name in :P

  • hldsupdatetool -command update -game garrysmod, considering there have been a gazillion updates between your first post and now.

I'm a friend with him on x-fire / steam, So I'm just speaking for him. I hope you can work on this information.

  • I had same issue where srcds wich was in orangebox folder was`nt able to detect garrysmod in the upper folder. What I did was, I started srcds with srcds -console -game C:\SRCDS\garrysmod -map gm_blableh [Additionnal parameters here] -nocrashdialog Have fun.

  • The garrysmod folder is supposed to be in the orangebox folder. Did you do that? [quote] Portal and Episodic content To install Portal and Episodic conent, you need to have GCFscape, and extract the content from the GCF of each game, either drag and drop the folder from the window to [b] the same directory as the GarrysMod folder (C:\srcds\orangebox) [/b], or right click, select extract, and browse to said directory.[/quote]

  • it actually is supposed to be there, i used hldsupdate to install Gmod and it put it there, in any case i have the same problem, (though by now this is 2 years later...) you would think in 2 years the problem would have been solved. basically what my problem is: i can't get the srcds.exe to load, whether via command prompt or by just clicking on the file. i have tried many things before but nothing has worked. does anyone know how to fix this?
