Thread: Hosting a server

  1. #1

    Default Hosting a server

    Does anybody know what site i can use to buy my own server for esf? I want a 24/7 public server with my esf and ecx files installed on it. I have no idea where to start so the question is hard to ask because i cant word it properly lol.

    Best to search for "dedicated servers" on google. Example would be http://gameservers.com, make sure it's a half-life dedicated server (goldscr), not half-life 2.

    couldnt find any available for halflife 1 on that particular site but ive found another site here. if you dont mind having a look at it to make sure im on the right track. should i be looking at something like this? http://www.multiplaygameservers.com/.../hl-half-life/

    Progress so far. Ive rented a server from multiplaygameservers for £8.00 a month and now im uploading the ESF mod to the clanforge control panel which lets me alter the game from half life to esf hopefully..

    The old ones are the best!

    Right so this is what i'm up to so far.

    • Rented a server through multiplay.co.uk
      -
    • Created a profile to be used for halflife.
      -
    • Downloaded and compressed the ESFb1.2.3.exe file into zip.
      -
    • Uploaded the ESFb1.2.3 file to the website's Mod list.
      -
    • Created a new profile set to Half life with the ESF mod attached to it.
      -
    • Switched my old profile to the New profile.


    After the switch of profiles it came to an error. I'm just waiting for an email from support to tell me why it went wrong and what i can do to fix it.

    I had a look at the support ticket they've sent and it is titled "game install required." Hopefully its something they have to do and not me lol.

    Did you run HL1 on the server first?

    I did yeah, i even joined the server for a little while.

    Ive got 2 profiles, one with just half life 1 as the game and the other profile has half life as the game and esf as its mod. When i switch the profiles it doesnt work. Says i need to install the game.

    Check the mod installed correctly, It's possible the exe put it in the wrong place

    My esf is working fine. The machine they have my server running on hasn't got ESF installed. Just got to wait for them to install it i guess..
