View Full Version : TF2 server help! Need server.cfg.
11-08-2008, 12:33 AM
I have just installed the stand alone tf2 dedicated server and got it upto date with the hldsupdatetool with no problems. It didn't seem to download or create a default tf2 server.cfg. I have tried creating one on my own but I know I am missing some vital cvars. My question is, how do I get a server.cfg for tf2?

The commmand cvarlist is also very helpful.
