Hi All !!!

I am asking question in general because it not related to plugin and the reason of writing thread is that when i start hlds roundtime remain for 5 minute but in server.cfg its 2 minute

First when HLDs Start [5 minute]
After Sever.cfg [2 Minute]

And when i fixed time from HLDs and then restart HLDs it remain [5 minute]
What the problem on this ??

What do you have written in server.cfg for this cvar? Also, what is the value of the "mapchangecfgfile" cvar?

P.S. FYI, since this question is not related to AMX Mod X and is about HLDS only, you should have posted in the HLDS sub-forum. You can request that your thread be moved by reporting your own post and just telling them it needs moved.

In your original post you say "when HLDS starts" and "after server.cfg". What does this mean? Server.cfg is executed when the server starts.

I don't use the Windows version of HLDS so I'm not entirely sure how the GUI configuration applies to the server or if there is something different with how it works compared to Linux.

It's hard to understand what you're saying with regards to what is happening and what you did. If you want 2 minute rounds, set the value to 2 minutes in both places just to make sure it gets set. Is there a reason you don't just do this?

I had the same issue as you describe here, basically you don't have to worry about what appears in the HLDS configuration, the round time and everything else should be configured from the server.cfg and everything will be fine, even if server crashes you don't have to manually input all the settings again from the HLDS Launcher.

does it look like they just can't establish connection to the server? well if it is it probably means your ip isn't private and/or ports are closed. to run your server you should either fix this or try to host your server somewhere(i believe you can get a three day trial on some of the servers, but then you'll have to pay, but it's like 5$/month)

well, there's much less problems if you want to play competitive and you all have steam version since you can create a server on fastcup and play(for free) on cs.fastcup.net you are actually able to create a room for them to join, so yeah

also, you can download radmin vpn(it's like hamachi but without tunnel or yellow triangle issues) and play through "new game"(but you'll have to write sv_lan 0 in console) AND through HLDS server, but ping...uhh... i guess it's gonna be a little high

I don't know where to start.

First, Linux servers are much, much cheaper and give equal and sometimes even better performance. You don't need 8 GB RAM and 4 CPUs for a CS 1.6 server - half of that performance would be more than sufficient. I used to run CS 1.6 surf server with 20 slots on OVH VPS with Ubuntu:

OpenStack KVM
1 vCore
2.4 GHz
2.99 /month
Price is extremely important if you plan to keep your server in long term.

Secondly, you need Steam Pipe (former HLDS tool) in order to run CS 1.6 server. And after that, you install dProto module so non-Steam players can get in.

Overall, you need a lot of technical skills if you want to build and maintain a server from scratch. My suggestion is that you should ask for a refund, and then start a server with some already established companies like gameservers.com, who provide technical support and give you an option to install various mods with 1 click.

But from my personal experience - I don't think it's really worthy at this point to run a CS 1.6 server. Majority of players are 3rd worlders who cannot afford a better computer to run CS:GO. They only make trouble with their cheats, high ping and racist language. All good players moved to CS:GO. When I compare 2007 and 2017, it's like day and night. The best days of 1.6 are over and it will just keep getting worse and worse in years to come.
