The install will take a while. Near the end, we’ll end up downloading a 3.5 GB file. I recommend screening the session, so you can close it when it starts the download and return to it later.
Download the install file:
Give permissions to execute, and execute it
This will download hldsupdatetool.bin to your current directory. Next we need to give this file execute permissions and the run it.
chmod +x hldsupdatetool.bin ./hldsupdatetool.bin
Run the Steam server to pick up any new Steam updates:
Once updated, run the Team Fortress 2 server to download the TF2 server updates (this is where screen sessions become handy):
./steam -command update -game tf -dir .
Once the TF2 server downloads and updates, it’s time to setup the configuration. Here’s a link to get you started.
Now we start it:
./srcds_run -game tf +map ctf_2fort
And there you go! A simple way to start your own TF2 Server!
