How come in Half-Life 2, CSS, or Garry's Mod I cant see my server if I create one??? After i'm in it I look in the server list and my server doesnt show up? WTH is wrong?

On the main menu select: Create server, Choose your style i.e TDM/DM/time limit/frag limit/map/etc.

Click start, the map will load, go to the console and enter sv_lan 0, hit enter and then sv_region 0, hit enter. Then reload the map, type: map(space)Scroll2YourMap/UpDown. Then give your IP to your friends or bring up the console before you reload the map and type: Hostname *****ThIsIsYoUrSeRvErNaMe***** And for a password type: password *blahBlah*. Give both server name and password to your friends.

Oh yeah, almost forgot, you wont see your server in the list, cos you cant really join your server, silly boy. Just make sure you reload the map after the sv_ cmd's

EDIT: The hostname and password is optional, click here to find out your IP then give it to your friends, or, wait for someone to join

Thanks Sparks!:) I tried it but it still isnt working. When your in a server in GMod if u open the "find servers" menu then the server your in will still come up. Mine only shows up if I add it as a favorite. But no one else joins... usually people will join within 1 min. Is there a certain command u gotta type to have ur server show up??? I just got this on my thing, I dont know if it is anything to due with my server -- Missing Vgui material vgui/servers/icon_secure_deny It appears in the console when I put the hostname

You cant join a server you created, if it was possible their would be two of you running around the same map. :rolleyes:

I cant see the point of adding the server you created to your favorites list, never found the need too. :)

Do everything else as i said above bar, hostname and password:

Create server, when the map loads, go to the console. type:

sv_lan 0

Then type:

sv_region 0

After that it should say "connected to the steam servers" or something

Reload the map by typing:

map(space)Scroll2YourMap/UpDown Arrow Keys

If you want to change the name of the server and or password, use the commands I posted before after sv_region. It would look like this:

Create server, when the map loads, go to the console. type:

sv_lan 0

Then type:

sv_region 0

After that it should say "connected to the steam servers" or something

Then type:

Hostname ThisIsYourServerName

Then type:

password blahBlah

Reload the map by typing:

map(space)Scroll2YourMap/UpDown Arow Keys

The password is obviously if want a private match. As for the icon_secure_deny error, don't worry about it, i had the same error and it worked.

After the map has loaded tell your friend(s) to join via your IP. they will have to add your IP through the favorites list, or just wait for some random guy to join...:D

No you don't have to pay for it, but you cannot play on the same server. Which could be basicaly: you have to buy a server or just host for others, if you want a dedicated server..

i dunno,in my experience the only way ive EVER found my server on css or hl2dm is through dedicated server,and my friend can play on his dedicated servers.Also you should be able to see your server on the gmod server list,if you cant get that to work its beyond me.

I don't get it, as far as I'm aware there is no free to use dedicated server space. Besides anything free either sucks or has a catch...
