In case you've been away and haven't noticed, Steam recently upgraded the Half-Life 2 Deathmatch client to run the Source engine. This in turn forces all servers to be upgraded. Because of this our servers have been off line or not offering the same great features, like sounds, bots or spawn protection. I have been working on server #2 to get these features back and have been reading that it should be very soon that a fix will be ready. Once i have all the parts i will be trying to get server #2 back on line with all the features we been used to. Server #1 will not be far behind.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Both servers are working again. Sounds, maps, even a version of spawn protection (which only lasts 3 seconds). No Bots, no chat protect and no headhsot YET.

Boy, I hope they get whatever patches or repairs done soon because that latest Steam upgrade seems to have butchered my internet play.  I can't seem to locate more that 3 or 4 servers at any given time.  It's been brutal!

It's been about a week now and I'm no further ahead.  I can't seem to get the Postal servers to show up very often when I'm searching for servers.  I still only get a few showing up on my screen.  I used to get 50 to 100 showing up every time I refreshed.  Does anyone know what's going on?

Hey Dooce,

Do you have our servers in your favorites ?
Have you looked using our IP addy's ?
Address: 208.167.242.192   Port: 27015
Address: 208.167.242.90   Port: 27015

I will see if I can help you.  Let me go find the topics I think are relavent and I will be right back with some ideas.


download, un-zip and add this file to your folder
C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\(YOUR-ACCOUNT)\half-life 2 deathmatch\hl2mp\resource
you will never need to search for our servers ever again

You know, I always had the Postal servers in my favorites.  Then these upgrades came along and they seem to have disappeared.  So when I stumbled on them last week after countless server refresh's, I again added them.  THey still do not show up.  I don't what's going on, but I'm totally unimpressed with whatever upgrades have been done.  My HL2 hasn't been the same since...

Should I still be trying to follow your instructions above?

if you click & download that file, it will help . . .
I think you will like this file I wrote, I use it and like it very much.
This file adds our two servers in the main menu.
if you do not like it, just remove it & it is gone.
But please try it !  Cool

This up-date messed with a lot of players in many ways.
I now have to re-load my spray in options before I go and play.

Well Worker, not surprisingly, that did the trick.  Thanks.  When I first boot up the Deathmatch game and do a server search, as has been the case lately, the Postal servers do not show up.  But then I can click on either one of those new menu choices, and AFTER I've connected once, I can then do a server search and the Postal servers will now show up.  WTF?  Hopefully Steam will do some more updating to fix whatever they buggered up.  But thanks for getting me hooked back up to home base.
