View Full Version : batch file question
11-27-2004, 10:54 AM
I have read two tutorials, one on steam's support site and one located here. This is in regards to the ip switch that posts your external IP.
Is it -ip <IPHERE> or +ip <IPHERE>?

Ok, I changed the switch to +ip.
Now when I execute the batch file I get this error message..
"Couldn't allocate dedicated server UDP port."
I tried a few different ports using +ip, same error.
I switch it back to -ip and it works fine. Interesting.

hmm, you may be right, because mine does the same thing, so i do it without the batch file, and the server works great!

I run a 10 man server and I don't have either of the +ip or the -ip in the shortcut, i just have -port 27015 to anything about my IP or ports.
C:\WINNT\system32\CMD.EXE /c START /AboveNormal C:\CSS\srcds.exe -console -game cstrike -port 27015 -maxplayers 10 +map de_dust -pingbooster 1
This is exactaly what mine is, and works just dandy.
Something extra not related to post:
The /c START /AboveNormal forces the source server to abovenormal priority so its a little more stable. You could change it to /high, /realtime, /low, or any of the other prioritys.
