Steam And Servers

<div class="IPBDescription">Has any one go it.......</div> Does anyone have the info on getting STEAM on an NS Win server yet?

I rent a server for our community. If WON goes offline in the next few days I would like to be able to switch our server over to STEAM. I see some NS STEAM servers out there, but they are all empty. Does this mean they are not working correctly?

Any help would be great! Thanks.

    I think it's just the simple fact that steam causes problems for some people and most people prefer the won system.

    Won will go offline very soon, we have no choice in the matter.

    I slapped one up a coupld of days ago and have seen people log on. I have not connected myself (in the hell that is Oregon on dial up).

    I should be able to get on tonight to test it out.

    We got our server working with Steam, including adminmod and the new STEAM ids. Of course the server is currently still running the WONID version until this weekend, so peope have time to transition.

    It was a fairly simple process to get up and running.

    Install Steam. Update HLDS.
    Copy ns directory with files over to the new steam HLDS install.
    Update the adminmod DLL for compatable STEAMID usage.
    Run server!

    I wish the client was as easy to get working as the server :/
    I took 5 mins, registered my email, then updated these:
    "valve" hlds, no games
    "hl" half life I think (could be hldm)
    "dod" Day of Defeat
    "cs" Counterstrike

    My server was up and running in about 2 hrs (most of that was downloading dod)
    AdminMod and Metamod didnt require anything, and CDmod worked fine too
