    trying to set up a Synergy Dedicated server...

    So I am trying to set up a dedicated server at home for hl2 synergy mod. I cannot for the life of me get the GCF files to extract properly. They seem to just error out no matter what I do. I have been using GCF scape as well as another extraction tool found on the synergy website. I have ran GCF scape on my desktop (win 7 64) as admin and everything as well as running it on the server (win server 2k3) with no luck. Does anyone have any idea what could be going on?

    Here is the documentation I am following:

    https://wiki.synmod.org/wiki/Stand-a...r_Installation

    Here is the error I am getting when trying to extract:

    Some of the GCF's will extract but others will not. For instance, nothing was able to be extracted from the GCF file in the above pic. I made sure steam was closed (even rebooted), and I have also ran the file verification in steam and everything seems to be ok as far as file integrity.

    Re: trying to set up a Synergy Dedicated server...

    Err the error image isn't coming up...

    Since you're using GCFScape...have you tried the other tool also listed on the Synergy Wiki page (linked above)?

    Did you extract in their given order?


    Have you tried posting about this on the official Synergy forums? Maybe a SA on there can help you get up and running?

    (I know how frustrating it is and it's most likely something simple, like corrupted files, or something. Just have a bit of patience and try not to mess around with everything at once -- more mistakes get made that way.)

    Re: trying to set up a Synergy Dedicated server...

    Sorry let me try to post it again.



    I have tried the other extractor listed on the Wiki page in the order listed. I have followed everything to the T with no luck

    I have also posted on the synergy forums with no luck. Your most likely right I'm sure its something so simple and I'm gonna kick myself when I get it working lol. I have verified file integrity and even deleted everything and started fresh several times lol. Thanks for the response

    I'm sorry if this is a silly question, but why not just run the synergy dedicated server tool right out of steam? It's in library tools.

    Sorry for taking a while to reply back, but been busy with programming an A.I... (deadlines deadlines...)

    Okay, first off, looks like a classic example of incorrect permissions.

    Right-click the file (or folder) and check the file/folder permissions to make sure "System" and your own user account has read/write/execute permissions on the file(s).

    That's done like so:
    Right-click > Properties
    Security tab
    Select SYSTEM and/or your user account
    Click "Edit" button
    Change permissions accordingly.

    Also under "General" tab, make sure you uncheck "Read-Only" and "Hidden".

    Click "OK".

    Try again.

    Granular customization. You'd have to jump through a lot of UI hoops to get back into the nitty gritty of customizing your setup if he just ran the dedicate server tool executable.

    Re: trying to set up a Synergy Dedicated server...

    Great point, acre I had not thought of permissions but makes sense. I'll check it when I get home.

    Wesb- can't do that because besides acreo's point, you have to own hl2, ep1 and ep2 to run the tool. This means I have to create a second steam account and buy them again.
