The Half-Life Dedicated Server Update Tool or HLDSUpdateTool was a tool to update GoldSrc and Source dedicated servers.

Setting up

  • Linux:
    1. Open a terminal and browse to a suitable folder
    2. Execute wget http://storefront.steampowered.com/download/hldsupdatetool.bin
    3. Execute chmod +x hldsupdatetool.bin
    4. Execute ./hldsupdatetool.bin
      If you are running a 64-bit Linux distro, you will probably have to install 32-bit libs. See here how to do this.
    5. The real update tool is ./steam

Downloading and running the server

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

Run the update tool with -command list to get a list of game names.

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