Kewl,

So have you incorporated this solution into your latest release? If not, then what's the solution?

Thanks,
Lex

Ureka! It works! Now nothing is shown...both my srcds.exe console and stats writer ftp cmd session are now completely invisible but run resident in the background.

Only drawback now is that I don't have console access...if there were only a way to make a process minimize to sys tray...hint hint

Thanks!
Lex

Thanks to the code sample I got from PMB, it *may* be possible to minimize to sys tray. Something to do for the next release if you can wait for it.

ps: I think I can implement a quick fix that will restore a hidden window without resorting to the sys tray, stay tuned ....

I'll wait, but I am salivating....;-)

BTW, I'm using this for multiple CS-S deticated servers and I feel that many people don't know about your simple approach (which works) and it needs better advertising some how.

Thanks!
Lex

You won't have to wait long. I got the "quick fix" working already. I can now show or hide process windows at any time, it works great.

As for advertising, you are right, the server loader could use more exposure. Any ideas?

Where's the fix? Maybe I overlooked it. I'll look again.

As for advertisment, can I put this banner on my MOTD?



Thanks,
Lex

I'll post a link in here to the lastest revision as soon as it is ready, perhaps tonight. Yes, by all means you can use any of my website images for advertising.

Still using 1.1 and I must say that I've been seeing a frequent amount of srcds.exe runtime errors. So I stopped using it an I've been running srcds.exe via manual cmd line and no crashes for over two days (whereas before with serverloader service ver. 1.1 it would crash w/in 24hrs...hummm...has anyone experienced this?

I'll give 1.2 a try soon.

Thanks,
Lex
