The Half-Life Dedicated Server Update Tool or HLDSUpdateTool was a tool to update GoldSrc and Source dedicated servers. It is no longer in use and has been replaced with SteamCMD instead.

Setting up

Downloading and running the server

Run the update tool with -command update -game <game>. Optionally, add -dir <path> to download to a custom location.

Here are some game names:

redorchestra - Red Orchestra
ship - The Ship
sin - Sin Episodes
darkmessiah - Dark Messiah


Warning.png Warning: The HLDS Update Tool does not provide Lost Coast, even though SDK Base does. Multiplayer mods should either not use anything from Lost Coast, or include what they do use in their dedicated server download.

To run the game, see either the Half-Life Dedicated Server or Source Dedicated Server page for more information.
