How do I set up a SRCDS TF2 MvM Server?

I know making a listen server is easy, but how would I configure a source dedicated server for it? (not the Steam Tool but the command line one)

Download and install hldsupdatetool. http://storefront.steampowered.com/d...updatetool.exe
Then install your server with a batch file having something like this inside (assuming you installed hldsupdatetool to C:\SRCDS):

Code:
@echo off

cd c:\SRCDS

hldsupdatetool -command update -game tf -dir .

pause
Create server.cfg and edit other stuff like motd and mapcycle as you wish.

Start your server with a batch file like this:
Code:
start /abovenormal C:\SRCDS\orangebox\srcds -console -game tf +maxplayers 32 +map mvm_mannworks

well since i have a question:

i Finally made my server run MvM with 24 slots now i have few questions.

if i want to keep my server running only MvM maps i can add those maps on the mapcycle and server will swicht it automatically like it does with normal maps?. or i need a script?.

because i dont remember where i read that if set MvM maps in Map Cycle will make server crash. because i really want to leave my server with MvM for players who want to play but also to give server a bit break when it need to reboot around 4 am.

there also a way to limit spectators?. or how many spectators MvM accept?

There is never a good server instruction here.
checkout:
Surprising the third party website is way better.

Not needed as it's the default port.

I've written up a mini-guide how to run MvM and enable Match-Making/QuickPlay:

http://linge-ma.ws/2012/08/how-to-ru...ith-quickplay/

Currently running 4 servers. Trying to set up a 5th but I can't get a new identity.

Thanks for sharing! I would really like to peek into your server.cfg file, any special settings I should maintain for pure MnnVsM server?
So far, I found that servers accept max 6 players vs bots with a total of max 32 slots (6players+26bots)

-> maxplayers 32
-> sv_visiblemaxplayers 8 (so you can have 2 in spec to fill in when 5th or 6th slot is freed)
-> tf_mm_servermode 0 // 2 for match making...etc

Still digging up specific commands around!

mapscycle.txt ,maplist.txt shouldn't really matter if you disable map vote. Since MvM is a progressing mod.

Going out now, will get into it later!

For some reason my server crashes every time someone shoots. Any idea of what can cause this or how to solve it?

How do you set up more than one quickplay server?
I only have one server.cfg file, so I don't understand how to activate multiple servers.

try make another server.cfg and name it server2.cfg
then add to the run command the following:

+servercfgfile server2.cfg

change the port for the server2 in the run command too,
==> -ip xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx -port xxxxx

Try to remove all plugins if existed for test! Else I can't think of any reason except Vavle

Yeah I thought it might be that and removing them did fix it. Not worth it though since the mode itself is full of bugs. I just wanted my friends to have a server where to play though.
