The Half-Life Dedicated Server Update Tool or HLDS is a tool to update GoldSrc and Source dedicated servers. New games using the Steam Pipe content system, such as CS:GO, use 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.

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.
