The Half-Life Dedicated Server Update Tool or HLDSUpdateTool is a tool to update GoldSrc and Source dedicated servers. Note that many server downloads now use the newer SteamPipe content system, and so the older HLDSUpdateTool will provide an out-of-date server. In this case, use SteamCMD instead.
- Windows: Just run the installer
- Open a terminal and browse to a suitable folder
chmod +x 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.
- The real update tool is
Downloading and running the server
Run the update tool with
-command update -game <game>. Optionally, add
-dir <path> to download to a custom location.
