Dear forum members,
for some time now we have been creating and maintaining new ways to help game server admins with questions and problems as quickly as possible, e.g. our Guides section and the Nitrado Community Discord.

Therefore, we inform you that the Nitrado Forum will be closed on March 31, 2023. We are consolidating our community support to our Discord channel, which is faster and more efficient. We have also seen incredible growth in our community due to the hard work of our moderators and our bots. We are confident that this move will ensure that we provide the best support possible for our users.

Thank you to all members for your continued use of the forum!

Assistance with all questions concerning your Nitrado service can now be found in these spots:
Community Discord:
Guides section:

    I got a message while connecting my my L4D server "Invalid protocol, expecting 1038, got 1031"

    This is because the game hasn't been updated. I haven't been able to connect to my server ever, customer service is dodging me, and I really want compensation. This server has never worked and it's on a fresh install. It seems like the L4D 1 servers have been abandoned on this website. I can't install my own updater since you won't allow .exe files, which is a huge pain by the way and not normal.


    I’m not able to install sourcemod by the way of the Nitrado Wiki, and I believe it’s so to sourcemod having exe files associated with it. Has anyone successfully installed sourcemod on a source server before? I’m using it on Left 4 Dead 1 but I’m sure plenty of people have installed in on their CS:GO servers and such, as it is the most common mod and base for mods in all source games.
