Linux Dedicated Server setup for BPR (V5)

In the "Installing a Dedicated Server" instructions, it mentions to install the "orangebox" engine, and to use the old "steam" command (from HLDSUpdateTool) to accomplish that.  Like this:

./steam -command update -game orangebox -dir /some-path

However, apparently the old HLDSUpdateTool no longer serves content for "orangebox" installs?
When I try that, I just get a repeating loop, like this:

Updating Installation
> Determining which depot(s) to install/update...
> 7 depot(s) will be installed/updated
>   0:02 No installation record found at /some-path/orangebox
>   0:02 Checking local files and building download list for depot 311
> 'Source 2007 Linux Dedicated Server' version 54
>   0:02     Connecting content server session for version 54
> Retrying in 30 seconds. . .
>   0:34 Checking local files and building download list for depot 311
> 'Source 2007 Linux Dedicated Server' version 54
>   0:34     Connecting content server session for version 54
> Retrying in 30 seconds. . .
>   1:12 Checking local files and building download list for depot 311
> 'Source 2007 Linux Dedicated Server' version 54
>   1:12     Connecting content server session for version 54
> Retrying in 30 seconds. . .
>   1:46 Checking local files and building download list for depot 311
> 'Source 2007 Linux Dedicated Server' version 54
>   1:46     Connecting content server session for version 54

Since the content (apparently) no longer comes-down via HLDSUpdateTool, I assume it must be downloaded via SteamCMD / SteamPipe now?

Typically, I would expect a SteamCMD install do be invoked like this:

./steamcmd.sh +login anonymous +force_install_dir /some-path +app_update app-id-number-here

However, what is the correct AppID to perform the equivalent install under SteamCMD / SteamPipe?

I have tried the following AppID's so far, without success:

  • 217 = Multiplayer OB Binaries

  • 218 = Source SDK Base 2007 (Orange Box)

  • 311 = implied by attempt to install "orangebox" via HLDSUpdateTool

  • 312 = all_source_engine_paths|hl2

  • 244310 = Source SDK Base 2013 MP dedicated server

  • 205 = Source SDK Base 2006 MP dedicated server <-- downloading right now, but don't expect it to work.

Re: Linux Dedicated Server setup for BPR (V5)

It should work with 218.
Now I never used the new system for installing servers so I can't really help you on that one.

I tried appID 218 using the new system, but it only pulled-down client-side Windows-based files.  No Linux binaries, and no SRCDS (for Windows or Linux).

From what I can gather, they stopped hosting the content for Source 2007 Dedicated Server on the old "HLDSUpdateTool" back-end content servers.  However, they have not yet made it available yet on the new "SteamCmd" tool's back-end contend servers (i.e. the "SteamPipe" system).  Looks like 2006 is ported over and 2013 - but for whatever reason not 2007!

Dev Wiki, Steam App ID's

I don't suppose you guys are going to be compiling for Source 2013 any time soon?
Or maybe since you've got some developer resources at Valve you can query?
