    Personaly i do not like the GUI for creating deciated games. I would create a shortcut to your HLDS, and make it something like this...

    C:\HLServer\hlds.exe -console -game ns +map ns_eclipse +maxplayers 22 -noipx
    Using something similar to this should work.

    -console will remove the GUI start.

    I hope this helps

    Actually, I think he is trying to do it from his client.

    Try this:

    C:\sierra\half-life\hlds.exe -game ns +maxplayers 16 +map eclipse

    Change to suit.

    Courage, we had that problem too when running hlds.exe v4.1.1.1 on win2k3. We switched to and it works fine.
