When i released Household Death 1.2, i BROKE server browsing, because i included a steam.inf file. Dedicated servers would not show up, but vac said it was running. When i emailed valve about it, alfred told me it was because i included a steam.inf, so, in order to make the mod visible; the server can't have the steam.inf file because those are only for games that have their own GCF. I dont know if this is going to screw up source stuff though. Only time will tell. --[[user:Omega|omega]]

Seems to me they fixed server browsing.  Although prodod runs independant from sourcemods, maybe thats the problem with that.  In game the steam browser works fine too. --[[User:Red comet|Red Comet]] 12:39, 17 Jul 2006 (PDT)

I can see Secure servers for GMod right now. AFAIK, the issue is that listenservers can't be protected, not that mods can't be. --TomEdwards 11:51, 17 Jul 2006 (PDT)

I can't create them though. Getting VAC online for Valve's games is a fickle process on my connection, but it isn't working at all with GMod. I tried your solution, but there is no steam.inf in the HL2 cache... --TomEdwards 12:26, 17 Jul 2006 (PDT)

There shouldn't be one in the HL2 cache because HL2 doesn't need VAC...try the hl2dm inf—ts2do 12:34, 17 Jul 2006 (PDT)
