    They need to make a Portal Co-op...like....now.

    They have.

    Unfortunately, it doesn't work.
    Yeah when you can put multiple portals down... D: So much horror...

    Im in.

    I can see this being completely fuckawesome if we get a PA server going.

    Bleh, I have Half Life Deathmatch Source but not Half Life Source. But I remember playing some Half Life maps on this a while ago. So it should work.

    Good software firewall? I haven't dealt with a software firewall in years, unless you count Linux firewall distros like ipcop etc.

    As a general firewall the windows firewall isn't great but it does as a basic firewall. Use that for the moment.

    I'll need to encode the video, go give it a bit.

    Ok, so I've got windows firewall.

    How do I forward ports on it? I want to get this set up before I go to bed....

    Also, I'm gonna update the OP with your Server setup info.

    Alright, I've got source dedicated server downloaded, so let's set this baby up.

    By the way, Is your computer prebuilt?

    No, I build all my own machines. I deal with that kind of thing as part of my day job.

    A quick way of doing that is going into task manager, selecting the srcds.exe process, right click on it and select Set Affinity... then select what core you want to run it on.

    Also, I suggest Set Priority and setting it to AboveNormal.

    On XP or newer, right click an empty area of your task bar at the bottom of the screen and select "Task Manager". You can also hit Ctrl + Alt + Del and select "Task manager", just don't hit those three keys together twice in a row or you'll reboot the system.

    Server is up!

    Name: Testing testing, 1 2 3! [penny arcade]

    It's on the fishing level for now, until I figure out how to load a HL2 map. :)

    IP: 88.104.214.220:27015

    It's on the fishing level for now, until I figure out how to load a HL2 map. :)

    Go into the console and type map mapname.

    For example:

    map d1_trainstation_01


    Here's the Half-Life 2 map list: (spoilered because of the length)
    d1_trainstation_01
    d1_trainstation_02
    d1_trainstation_03
    d1_trainstation_04
    d1_trainstation_05
    d1_trainstation_06
    d1_canals_01
    d1_canals_01a
    d1_canals_02
    d1_canals_03
    d1_canals_05
    d1_canals_06
    d1_canals_07
    d1_canals_08
    d1_canals_09
    d1_canals_10
    d1_canals_11
    d1_canals_12
    d1_canals_13
    d1_eli_01
    d1_eli_02
    d1_town_01
    d1_town_01a
    d1_town_02
    d1_town_02a
    d1_town_03
    d1_town_04
    d1_town_05
    d2_coast_01
    d2_coast_03
    d2_coast_04
    d2_coast_05
    d2_coast_07
    d2_coast_08
    d2_coast_09
    d2_coast_10
    d2_coast_11
    d2_coast_12
    d2_prison_01
    d2_prison_02
    d2_prison_03
    d2_prison_04
    d2_prison_05
    d2_prison_06
    d2_prison_07
    d2_prison_08
    d3_c17_01
    d3_c17_02
    d3_c17_03
    d3_c17_04
    d3_c17_05
    d3_c17_06a
    d3_c17_06b
    d3_c17_07
    d3_c17_08
    d3_c17_09
    d3_c17_10a
    d3_c17_10b
    d3_c17_11
    d3_c17_12
    d3_c17_12b
    d3_c17_13
    d3_citadel_01
    d3_citadel_02
    d3_citadel_03
    d3_citadel_04
    d3_citadel_05
    d3_breen_01

    When I say console, I mean the server console.

    You can do the above using rcon, but you'd need to set the address and password.. so for example in the game console:

    rcon_address 192.168.1.3
    rcon_password bob
    rcon map map d1_trainstation_01

    The address will in your case have to be your network address, using localhost doesn't work.
    The password is whatever you have set the rcon password as on the server.
    And obviously any server commands have to be preceeded by the command rcon.

    Graggh.

    Every time I connect to the server, it will hang on "Retrieving Server Info" for 3 or so minutes, which is much longer than normal, and will then go to a black screen, forcing me to restart.

    This has happened in a few of the older source games (Anything running off of the build from episode one and beyond have given me no problems) So does anyone know whats going on?

    I think he took the server down, don't remember why exactly, I wasn't paying attention :P
    Anyway, I don't think it's up right now.

    Alright, thanks.

    Test Result: Success!

    Notes:
    Long distance popups, shouldn't have much affect in the main game
    Occasional lag, usually when something like a strider and a group of enemies are on the screen, probably will be similar to reaper's server in regards to physics
    Maps change pretty fast

    This is why I have a static ip, also why I don't advertise it to avoid the masses from trying to connect in and murder it.

    Ask your ISP for one, some charge a one off fee, others charge a monthly fee, some charge nothing and others don't allow you a static ip because they nat the fuck out of their network.

    Also, I suggest not playing HL: Source until some people join in it with Synergy. It'll be kind of interesting to experience it the first time with co-op.

    And I can't currently join in any games atm as I'm uploading this video to googlevideo and also downloading stuff too. So my net connection is maxed out.
