Suicide Survival is a modification of Half-Life 2 Deathmatch. There are two teams. You either play as an overweight WW2 pilot in the survivor team or as a suicider disguised as a pot plant in the suicider team. The goal for the survivors is to stay alive and to spot the suiciders. They have a couple of throw-able copies of the book: “Gardening for Beginners – by Barbara Bush” as a self-defense weapon. The goal for suiciders is to sneak up close enough to the survivors in order to blow themselves up. Because each map is full of shrubberies its very hard to spot a real suicidal pot plant among the many fake ones. If a shrubbery isn’t moving, you can’t tell if he is being controlled by another player or not. Currently the game doesn’t have any other goal then being simple team deathmatch. However it still is a lot of fun and you should definitely try it out with a few friends.

Post tutorial Report content RSS feed Dedicated Server for Suicide Survival

This tutorial explains how to setup a dedicated server for Suicide Survival 1.0.

Basic Server Tools.

Ok this is a very basic tutorial to get you started.

Suicide Survival is based on HL2 Deathmatch and running on OrangeBox code of the Source Engine. So you will need the "Team Fortress 2 Dedicated Server" to run a server. Its the same as "source 2007 dedicated server" in your steamfolder/

But before you launch the tool delete the file "server.cfg" in Steam\steamapps\SourceMods\SuicideSurvival\cfg
There is some wierd erro which will prevent your server from changing levels if you leave the server.cfg there.

When you launch it you are giving a few options.

Most of those settings depend on your own liking and bandwith, etc. Just make sure you select the right Game and the right map.

When you are finished start the server.

Congratulations, your dedicated Suicide Survival Server should be up and running now.

If you dont see the server in the serverlist try to get some friends to join it.

You also might want to forward your port if you are connected over a router. If you dont know how to do that look here:

Lastly: if you got your server up and running post the IP along with your settings or modifications and when your server will be up on the official forum.


So far there is only one common error i know of. When starting the dedicated server tool you get this error:

c:\program\gameinfo.txt is missing.

This error is generated because it can't read the space inside the directory structure, (I know its pretty stupid). The only solution that I know of is to re-install steam into a directory with no spaces.
NOTICE: make sure you backup your game files in the steam directory. Because when you deinstall steam it deletes everything!
