View Full Version : SourceOP on FF?

Sep 16, 2007, 08:56 PM
I added SourceOP to my Fortress Forever Dedicated Server, but it doesn't seem to be loading up...
Is it that SourceOP isn't compatible with FF yet (or at least to the Public)? Sorry if I'm asking a dumb question or if there's an obvious answer, but I've tried adding SourceOP to my server several different ways and it still doesn't load up.

Thanks for the help.

EDIT: I also tried putting it on my Day of Defeat: Source server, but that doesn't seem to be working either (I used program that automatically adds Sourceop and clicked Day of Defeat Source when it asked me what game and it still doesn't work.

Are you using srcds?

SourceOP is compatible with FF. You will need a seperate srcds installation with FF on that. Then install SourceOP to C:\srcds\FortressForever (or wherever you installed srcds).
By clicking the DODs option in the installer, you are installing it as a listen server. If you want to use the dedicated server steam tool, you will have to selected the dedicated server option.

OK, I'll look into all that. That's probably the problem with my FF server though.
Thanks a lot. :)

No problem. Let me know how it works out.

Sep 16, 2007, 09:45 PM
It was going well until I realized that I don't have srcds.exe for some reason (I was actually at the end of creating the server when I actually needed it then).
Is there any reason as to why I don't?

You have to install it seperately. See http://www.srcds.com/db/engine.php?subaction=showfull&id=1097362093 for more info.

That's the guide I've been following the whole time and it's been going great up until the last step where I actually run srcds and it cant find the exe.

What exactly are you doing to get that error and what exactly is the error?

Sep 16, 2007, 09:56 PM
Alright, well I'm at the part where I enter into Start, Run, "c:\srcds\srcds.exe -console -game FortressForever +map ff_well -maxplayers 16 -autoupdate"
If you're not sure what I'm talking about, it's nearing the end of that guide.
Now, when I hit Enter, it says that Windows cannot find c:\srcds\srcds.exe

Then that isnt where you installed srcds.exe. When u got hldsupdatetool where did you put it.

Sep 16, 2007, 10:04 PM
I ran it and when it talked about the destination folder, I put c:\srcds
Then I ran cmd and did the whole

cd \srcds

Do start->run and just type C:\srcds. What's in that folder? Anything at all?

Sep 16, 2007, 10:27 PM

FortressForever folder
bin with sourceop dll in it

So everything that is srcds is missing. You must have skipped step 2 or did it incorrectly.

Sep 17, 2007, 02:31 PM
I keep repeating all the steps exactly as they put it in the guide, but for some reason, I'm always missing the srcds.exe

When you run hldsupdatetool, pay attention to what the output is.

Sep 17, 2007, 03:53 PM
The output is always the srcds and in fact, I just deleted my srcds folder and started from scratch.
I ran the updated to c:/srcds and the exe STILL doesn't come up.

That's because when you run hldsupdatetool, you are doing something wrong.

When at the command line, run:
hldsupdatetool -command update -game hl2mp -dir C:\srcds

Pay close attention to the output of that program. If it says Checking bootstrapper version and then says updating to version 20 (which it will the first time that you run it), you will have to run the above command again.

Sep 17, 2007, 04:05 PM
are you sure I enter hl2mp? I'm making a Fortress Forever server.

Drunken F00l
Sep 17, 2007, 04:10 PM
Yes. You have to install FortressForever on top of the srcds base. Installing hl2mp will give you that base.

Sep 17, 2007, 04:15 PM
OK, so it's in the middle of installing all that in my command prompt (sorry for all the trouble by the way).
After that's finished, where do I resume following the normal guide?

OK, after it's done installing, type
HldsUpdateTool.exe -command version and make sure it lists at least Source Dedicated Server, Base Source Shared Materials, Base Source Shared Models, Base Source Shared Sounds. If it does, you can then put back the FortressForever folder into the srcds folder. After that, you are ready for the third step. To start the fortress forever server type:

c:\srcds\srcds.exe -console -game FortressForever +map ff_cornfield -maxplayers 16 -autoupdate

The server should then start. You can shut it down and then install SourceOP if you want. You would use the installer (advanced mode) and install it to C:\srcds\FortressForever

Sep 17, 2007, 04:26 PM
ok. It's still installing (at 14.86 %, so it's gonna take a while). I'll tell you how it goes if the server is successfully put up with sourceOP and all.

Drunken F00l
Sep 17, 2007, 04:28 PM
OK. Don't forget after this is done, you still have to install the FortressForever server and then install SourceOP before it will work.

Sep 17, 2007, 05:09 PM
but you see, I STILL don't have the exe. And either way, when I type
c:\srcds\srcds.exe -console -game FortressForever +map ff_cornfield -maxplayers 16 -autoupdate, it says it isn't recognized as an internal or external command.

Then the update didn't finish or something. Run the hldsupdatetool command again (you don't have to delete anythong or start over, you're fine just run it again).

Sep 17, 2007, 08:22 PM
I keep doing that but that exe still never shows up. I don't get it...

Well when you run hldsupdatetool now, what does it say? You can copy and paste from the command window. To do this, you can right click the command window, select mark, select the text, and press enter. Then paste it here using Ctrl+V.

Sep 18, 2007, 03:48 PM
ok, so when I type hldsupdate tool in command prompt that's directed towards the srcds folder, this is what comes up:

Checking bootstrapper version ...

Use: hldsupdatetool -command <command> [parameters] [flags]


update: Install or update HLDS

-game <game> - Game name: use 'list' to see available games
-dir <installdir> - HLDS Install dir

That's good. But I meant what comes up when you type:

hldsupdatetool -command update -game hl2mp -dir C:\srcds

Sep 18, 2007, 08:17 PM
A very long list of things I am downloading (models, textures, stuff like that) comes up with percentage numbers next to it.
At the end, though, this is what it says:

42.67% C:\srcds\hl2\models\vortigaunt_postures.ani
42.67% C:\srcds\hl2\models\vortigaunt_postures.mdl
42.68% C:\srcds\hl2\models\vortigaunt_slave.dx90.vtx
42.71% C:\srcds\hl2\models\vortigaunt_slave.mdl
42.73% C:\srcds\hl2\models\vortigaunt_slave.phy

Connection Reset, WinSock Error 10054 "Connection reset by peer"

That means there was an error part way through and that you have to try again. You aren't done until it says:

HLDS installation up to date

OK, I finished it and finally have the .exe in my srcds folder!! When I execute srcds, though, a bunch of errors come up in the prompt and THEN it finally starts (with all the errors before it).
Plus SourceOP doesn't load, even though I added it to Fortress Forever in the srcds folder.
