I installed HL1 dedicated server as instructed in steamcmd tutorial.. all looks ok, all files seems to be where they should be..

But when try to start the server I get the error:

error reading the application id, please either write it in steam_appid.txt or use the launcher!

Problem 1: steam_appid.txt is already in the valve directory and it contains appid 70

Problem 2: When I use the launcher I cannot choose anything else than game: counterstrike
I want to run HL1 server ...

I used appid 90 when installing (as said in help text appid 90 is the same for cs and hl) but cannot choose half-life as game when starting server.

Is it only my that are stupid or are there more I should know that is not mentioned in the instructions for using the steamcmd.exe?
