I get in my CMD the error the steamCMD cannot connect to internet. I have connection to the internet but I am not able to login into the SteamCMD. I am in centOS and I am not logged in into the normal steam client or site
uname -a Linux vpstyasvrb 2.6.32-220.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Exit codes

Is there a list of exit codes & means for steamcmd?

For some reason, if a game is up2date it exits with exit code6

On Ubuntu, the Package Group ia32-libs-gtk is now called ia32-libs.

Invalid Platform

I seem to be getting: ERROR! Failed to install app '220070' (Invalid Platform)

I'm using Fedora 17. uname -a returns: Linux localhost.localdomain 3.6.10-2.fc17.i686 #1 SMP Tue Dec 11 18:27:35 UTC 2012 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Other people seem to be getting this error as well, though I'm not too sure what distro they're using. I'll try it again in the morning with Ubuntu.

Poor Documentation Doesn't Help Linux

The documentation here takes some tinkering with to get things working.

And some doesn't even work.

First, to clarify, app ID is the valve app ID for the game. There should be a link to the app ID list somewhere (although they list CSGO in the example.

Second, to automate SteamCMD do xxx.

SteamCMD is not really a command. You can't just run SteamCMD although it makes it look like you should. I guess you have to run every time although I'm still vague on this step.

I'll set an update script however, I don't know what command to kick it off with. These instructions should take nothing for granted.

I never thought I'd say this but I miss the hlds tool.

You're absolutely right! I added a link to the Steam AppID list and I clarified the steamcmd / ./ step in Automating SteamCMD. Lonaowna 06:12, 6 January 2013 (PST)

Supported Games for Anonymous Login

Hesitant to link on the page since it's not an official link (even though pointing to official data), but an always updated list of games that support the new anonymous login can be found at (or at any of the other various cdr listing sites)



Im not sure. im putting on a new server to Steam and No Steam, i uploaded the "app_update 90 -beta beta validate" (the steamCMD.exe is in a folder in desk, not in Valve) is that correct? should i run the HDLS in the folder that steamCMD downloaded? What i need to do for run the server, please somebody i need really help.


BugslayerUtil.dll not found!

Hello, before I begin I would just like to point out that I'm new with how Discussion pages work, and so I ask for your patience if I do anything erroneous.

When I attempt to run SteamCMD.exe to update it, I notice that I get the following:

[ 0%] Checking for available updates...

[----] Verifying installation...

Steam_: BugslayerUtil.DLL not found

Steam Console Client (c) Valve Corporation

-- type 'quit' to exit --

Loading Steam3...OK.

Loading Steam2...OK.


I would like to know if there is some way to fix this, or if I have done something wrong, or if this is even a problem at all!

Windows requires Internet settings set to automatic

While doing some fiddling with srcds on Windows 8 I found I had to enable "Automatically detect settings" settings under Internet Properties -=> Connections -> LAN settings, otherwise steamcmd would gripe about not being able to connect (http error 0). Don't have the actual errors off hand.
