Default MeanLoader Server Startup - 25-01-2005

How do you get the meanloader to get past this?



(To get it to [click] the start button), It opens up hlds fine but I still have this window to bypass or to continue with.

In the meanloader.ini file, place -console in the startup command line

Example

[Process_0]
StartDir =
AppName = C:\HLServer\hlds.exe
CommandLine = -game cstrike -console -noipx +maxplayers 16 +map de_dust

Hey gang,

I just started using ServerLoader for srcds.exe (CS-S deticated server) and a .dat to html converter script .exe for uploading stats to my webserver. The proggy works great; however, I can seem to config the ini file to hide the proggy dialog windows...I want srcds.exe and my script to run behind the scenes w/o having to be manually minizized. I've used every config i.e. hide etc.

Also, is there a way to make the app load the antivirus or the steam client where it's minimized on the bottom right?

Thanks,
Lex

Some programs won't recognize these load settings (many don't, including Microsoft's own programs).

In the INI file put


; Window = <state>
;
; hide hides process window
; showinactive sets process window as inactive
; show sets process window as active (default)
; minimize set process window as minimized
; minimizeinactive set process window as minimized inactive
;
; Optional: Default setting is "show"
; Note: Not all programs will support these window settings.


The other thing you can try is

UserInterface = No

; UserInterface
; Yes = the programs interface will be made available
; No = the programs interface will not be made available
;
; Note: This setting is applied only during the initial
; installation of the service, therefore starting and stopping
; the service will not reload the UserInterface setting. Only
; reinstalling the service will reload the setting.

PMB gave me something new to try out, so perhaps I can fix it if I can somehow get the pointer to the apps window process. Currently I am using the process pointer, but some processes are simply ignoring whatever window messages that are passed to them.

I seem to have found a solution to get the windows minimized. I just ran a test and my HLDS server and some other apps will now minimize on start up. I have to do more tests to see if all the windows commands work, but it looks real good so far.

-noipx simply disables the netware ipx protocol, which most people do not use. For me I always have disabled ipx without any problems.
