Initial Steps
We host all of the official Double Action dedicated servers through SimRai[simrai.com]. The servers are amazing, their customer support is amazing, and they are all very nice people. If you want a dedicated server you should consider renting one through them. And no, I don't get any referrals from them.

  • Download SteamCMD here: https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/SteamCMD
  • Make a directory for the Source Dedicated Server, I called mine "srcds".
  • Put SteamCMD inside that folder and run it. On Windows to run it you just a double click, on Linux it's ./steamcmd.sh
  • Type "login anonymous" but without the quotes, or you can use your own Steam login if you like.
  • Type "force_install_dir ./sdk2013" but without the quotes.
  • Type "app_update 317800" but without the quotes. This will download a whole bunch of crap.
  • Type "quit" but without the quotes.
  • Go into the "sdk2013" folder that should now exist inside your "srcds" folder.
  • Your setup should look like this: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/4205810/dab/serversetup.png
  • Ensure that the da_info/cfg and da_info/log directories exist. Otherwise you won't be able to store logs and bans.
Windows Instructions
From here on the instructions are different for each platform. On Windows:

  • Type Windowskey-R. (Windowskey is the button between ctrl and alt on the bottom left of your keyboard.) Type “cmd” and press enter. This should open a command prompt.
  • Type “cd \srcds\sdk2013″ or whatever the directory you made is called.
  • Type “srcds -game dab +maxplayers 10” but, of course, without the quotes.
  • Press the “Start server” button.
Linux Instructions
  • In a command prompt, type “cd ~/srcds/sdk2013″ or whatever the directory you made is called.
  • Type “./dabds.sh +map da_rooftops +maxplayers 10”

Some systems run different versions of glibc. If you experience an "version `GLIBC_2.15' not found" error try running the following commands:

echo "deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian sid main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list apt-get update apt-get -t sid install libc6 libc6-dev libc6-dbg

Afterward, please remember to hash out sid main from your sources list. /etc/apt/sources.list


If you experience a "steamclient.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory" error, try running the following command inside your 'srcds' directory:

ln -s linux32/steamclient.so ~/.steam/sdk32/steamclient.so

Why are there complex and stupid guides for making a server actually WORK instead of just having the game make the server online when you press make server?

i'd like to know why the in game CREATE SERVER works but in the 'game' tag there are no commands such as settings for the room..ETC?..how about the in library tools section in steam for DS..otherwise installing an Dedicated Server is such a pain in the ass compared to just simple create with other games..cant they just fix this add>??
