This page describes how to install Valves HLDS (Half-Life Dedicated Server) for installing and running a game server for classic Half-Life 1 games.

Installation

First, install hldsAUR from the AUR.

Now we begin download the game files, in this example for Counter-Strike 1.6, by executing this command (where username and password is your steam one):

$ su hlds -C "/opt/hlds/steam -command update -game cstrike -dir /opt/hlds -username <username> -password <password>"

Configuration

Of couse you can define the server settings in the game directory itself, for example by editing /opt/hlds/cstrike/server.cfg. Alternatively you could set the startup parameters in /etc/conf.d/hlds:

/etc/conf.d/hlds
user=hlds # this setting won't work yet
workingdir=/opt/hlds # this setting won't work yet
params="-game cstrike -autoupdate +maxplayers 20 +port 27019 +map de_aztec"

Be sure you open or forwarded the port, e.g. 27019 UDP+TCP correctly!

Start the server

Starting the server is easy!

$ systemctl start hlds

To enable autostart, issue following command:

$ systemctl enable hlds
