Invalid Steam key size.

Hi
CSS hat heute ein ca 700MB Update gezogen und seitdem bekomme ich die Meldung wenn ich mich auf einen Server einloggen möchte zum spielen

Invalid Steam key size.

Wie bekomme ich den Fehler weg?
Danke

Invalid Steam key size error is caused because you are connecting to an un-updated server.

Wait a week or two for server owners to update their servers.


Nothing wrong with your game.

Wie Slayer00 schon sagte, der Server muss auch geupdated werden. Und Server aktualisieren sich nicht von alleine.

It updated the game engine which caused the mods/plugins to "break" but as you see, there is Mani for TF2 which is same engine the updated CSS has, they will update CSS to same engine soon too, aswell as all other plugin coders.

Steam killed CSS with this Update at least on the Linux Servers.... Updating on Windows is working Properly. But as soon as i try to Update the Servers on my Linux Root nothing is working.

If i start my Server with this line:
./srcds_run -game cstrike +map de_dust2 -maxplayers 22 -tickrate 100 -port 27015 -autoupdate

It says first no Folder Orangebox creates the folder and downloads everything like maps and so on into it.
After thats done i Start the Server again with that line and it Says Server will restart on Map Change but since nobody can connect to the Server cause it says Invalid Steam Key Size so i cant change the Map. As soon as i shut the server down and restart him i get the same message.

If i try to download everything and make a server without everything with this line:

./steam -command update -game "Counter-Strike Source" -dir /home/servers/clear/

It says missing Orangebox and downloads everything in the new made Orangebox folder since there is no srcds in this folder i have to change to orangebox and start it from there after i do that it says again No Folder ./orangebox and downloads EVERYTHING Again!!!!

So Steam Thanks for this NICE WELL PLANNED ED UP UPDATE!!!

Yes Bad Update...
The bad is also still that the update servers is very slow and for an update to the 30 minutes to always wait must.
Where I also plays cannot I would not like the servers because of this stupid updates any more reach. If it possible does not last I the update would delete and the previous version used there gabs problems…. And for years: /

well, its really not the perfect one ^^

they leave the old installation running and create a new one in a new folder orangebox. search for it and use the srcds_run command from the orangeboxfolder. Your server will work fine then (no mani, no other plugins, just plain install)
