does anyone know how to make it to were i can make a server with !rtd !admind and !rtv ?
moved to the proper sub-forum with a proper title.
You first need to install Meta Mod, then you need to install Source Mod, then you need to install the roll the dice plugin of your choice. Here are some sites that might help you out:
Source Mod comes with a rock the vote plugin by defualt, if you want something fancier, look around Allied Mods a bit.
You'll also need an FTP client and you'll need to know how to use it and you'll need to know how to connect to your server, I like Filezilla because it was the first one I used and I'm used to it. Your server provider should be able to provide you with the FTP details you need to connect to your server and modify it. Some server providers provide you with an option to install meta and source mod from their control panel.
Oh, I don't think there's any way to set up these things on a local server, either, so you'll probably have to rent a server from somewhere.
Yes, you will need to run a dedicated server off a machine. Either a spare desktop you run as a server or an actual server if you're fortunate enough to own that much hardware, or hire a server from a provider online.
You can run a dedicated server off your machine but it's performance will be terrible and you'll not be able to connect to it yourself unless it's on a second machine on your network.
Once you setup your dedicated server you'll want to install meta and source mod, as waxpax said, from which you can install many plugin options found over at alliedmods.net (see waxpax's links).
i've ran dedicated server on my laptop and connected to it from the same laptop just fine with no noticeable performance problems
map upload speed was terrible tho
The performance wouldnt be noticeable to you. However to other people it would be very noticeable.
neither tech nor steff complained. also, how would it be noticeable to others? ping maybe if i had shitty internet, but performance?
Then you live in some alternate reality or your computer is powerful enough to run both the communication and math processes of a server whilst also rendering the game as a second process. But you're completely missing the point, i'm not even sure you can run SM on a local config; which is what he wants, a "RTV" SM plugin.
only an i3
if my computer wouldnt be strong enough to run server and tf2, i'd be noticing that too, wouldnt i
edit: isnt tf2 clientserver anyway so local servers run a server and game at the same time, just a bit differently from running a dedicated
If people could run games off their machines so easily we wouldn't even have or need dedicated servers.
