Counter-Strike: Source server

#1

What’s up, guys?

I whipped up a box of hardware, connected it to my home fiber line, and installed Counter-Strike: Source dedicated server. I have yet to install SourceMod, other plugins, or configure administrative permissions, but the IP address is 97.115.230.231 if you guys want to play around with it.

I uploaded all of the maps that I could find. I was not able to restore the following maps:

de_3rdstreet_ukcs
de_cbf
de_dust2_ext
de_dustgo
de_hiekka
de_ignorance
de_Mountain
de_nuke_csgo
de_OldAlley
de_pariah
de_pariah_x
de_nightrush
de_retaliation_improved
de_sultan_64
de_telakka
de_vancouver_publicalpha
de_zentech_office
fy_ahp_iceworld_final
fy_iceworld_old

The next step is configuring plugins. I think betting and wire-pull were my favorites, and I’m not a big fan of no-block or even custom skins (admin skins). I have a massive list of plugins that might be useful, and I’m going to go through them to assess utility, ease of install, and to discover any bugs/performance problems that might come.

Please feel free to test this server and let me know if there are any problems.

Added QuickDefuse and damage info plugins. Enabled nominate, rockthevote, and randomcycle.

I might add a scrim plugin, if anyone wants to do some 10-player matches.

Router is FUBAR (keeps fucking up the port forwarding–thanks CL!), so I’m going to have to get rid of it and use something else. IP will change when that happens. I might throw the network gear on a UPS to make sure it takes a long time before that part becomes a problem again. Fast download disabled while broken.

Ruric reported failure to download maps over standard slow protocol, so I set the server for default mapcycle. I’m pretty sure most of this is my router at home (standard CenturyLink garbage). I have a router with OpenWRT, but I’m not 100% sure I can get a full 1Gbps through the WAN port, so I’m looking at replacements.

Replaced router, fixed DNS, and re-enabled features.

Yes, the IP changed again (updated above), but the DNS should now be usable. You can alias a keyword to config.cfg (and set read-only) to quick connect by DNS:

alias “ahp” “connect sg.infinitech.org

Everything is looking good. Had about 8 people play recently, everything worked, and it was buttery smooth. I will likely still put the network hardware on a UPS (which will, again, change the IP), and if there are other games/mods that clanmates would like to set up, please let me know, and we can discuss how to proceed.

Nice job, dude. I haven’t played source in years! Pretty sure my ping from Nigeria would be something awful. :wink:

You are certainly welcome to try. Your ping might suck, but we could give it a shot.

IP may periodically change, but it can always be found in the global server list, and I will update here (the most recent spot I can edit in this thread) if it changes.
