So, you can't get CSSDM running correctly... let's see what we can do to make it run
Please note that this is only for LEGITIMATE Steam server, and non-steam servers will not be supported.
You need some basic things to get CSSDM running, as stated in the install guide: A srcds server, Metamod:Source, and Sourcemod.
Please make sure you have followed the installation instructions to the letter before asking for help; most problems are caused by people not reading the instructions thoroughly and missing an important (yet small) step.
Metamod:Source install instructions
Sourcemod install instructions
CSSDM install instructions <--References the previous two as well

First and foremost, are you running a listen server (Starting up the CS:S game and running the server through that) or running a dedicated server (srcds.exe/srcds_run)?
If it's a listen server, make sure you follow the instructions for a listen server (http://wiki.alliedmods.net/Using_Met...Listen_Servers)! If dedicated, let's continue.

Checking vanilla (plain) server
Now, does the server run fine without Metamod? You can check this easiest by editing the gameinfo.txt file in srcds/cstrike and commenting out the GameBin line (do so by putting // before it). If the server does not run without Metamod, then something else is amiss (Try an update with -verify_all, such as ./steam -command update -game "Counter-Strike Source" -dir . -verify_all). Perhaps a different plugin is causing the issue? If you still cannot get the server to run correctly with no plugins, then either try a fresh install or go ask on the Steam forums; this is not a srcds support forum.

Checking Metamod:Source
Ok, now that we have verified that the server runs without Metamod, let's make sure it runs with Metamod. Uncomment the line in gameinfo.txt (remove the //), save it, then open up cstrike/addons/metamod/metaplugins.ini (you did create that file too, right? ). Comment out any listings you may have in there (again, by adding // to the beginning of the line), and try to run the server. If you get a crash, make sure you have the correct Metamod file in the correct directory (.dll for windows/.so for Linux; both go in cstrike/addons/metamod/bin). If it still fails, re-download it; it may have been corrupted. If the server does start up, type "meta" in console. If you get unrecognized command, you need to troubleshoot some more (most likely misplaced files), otherwise Metamod is working

Checking Sourcemod
Now we move onto Sourcemod. Make sure all the files are in the correct locations, and then uncomment the lines for Sourcemod (remove the // in the front) in metaplugins.ini (if they weren't there, that's another problem ). Just do Sourcemod for now, as maybe your other Metamod plugins (if any) are causing problems). Once uncommented, save, and start the server. If it crashes, make sure all the files are in the correct locations again, try getting the newest version of Sourcemod, and remove any third party plugins (maybe even all) by placing them in the cstrike/addons/sourcemod/plugins/disabled folder (instead of cstrike/addons/sourcemod/plugins), and try to run the server. If the server starts up, type sm in console. If you get unrecognized command, you need to figure out why Sourcemod isn't loading (meta list may help); otherwise Sourcemod is now correctly installed.

Checking CSSDM
Now we move onto CSSDM. This is simply a matter of extracting the files to the proper locations (you can configure later). Once extracted, try to run the server. If it crashes, make sure you have a good download and try again. If it runs, test out the server. It should be fine

All other plugins
Now you can re-enable all other plugins (Both Metamod and Sourcemod) one by one to make sure they are not causing any problems.


Please also check the official CSSDM FAQ at http://www.bailopan.net/cssdm/index.php?page=faq

Directory structure
This is how your directory should look (just the addons directory, and there are some missing files that come default with sourcemod, but if you don't have these, then DM probably won't run ; there are also files in cfg folder as well, not shown as they are not critical to running but necessary to configure it):

Q: Help! I have CSSDM and RPG installed, and the health for RPG does not take effect! (Default 100hp).
A: This is caused by CSSDM spawn protection. The easiest way to fix this is to move the dm_spawn_protection.smx file into the disabled folder to disable the spawn protection. Otherwise you need to customize either one or both of the plugins to work with each other.

More to come! (All I could think of off the top of my head )

Hi there....

Well, CSSDM was running fine but there's this annoying problem in getting it to enable/disable it. On the support page it was mentioned that by typing "cssdm_enable [0/1]" one can enable/disable it.

But whenever I type that in my console I get this "Can't set cssdm_enabled in multiplayer"....

Is something very critically going wrong?

I think its a bug as I cant do it either and havent been able to turn CSSDM on/off on the fly since it was updated to ver 2.

There is a SM plugin (AdminTools Source I think) that supports different plugins and CSSDM is one of them and Ive used it to turn CSSDM on/off on the fly but I cant seem to get it done with the command.

Q: I want to run CSS: DM + Gungame5 on my server for an upcoming lan party. Now I installed everything, and everything is working fine, but I still get the gun selection menu after every respawn.

I disabled the primary- and secondary guns menu's by setting the options to "no" in config file, but the first menu still appears (select guns, random guns, ...). Is there anyway to disable this?
