First SourceOP Release
Date: Sunday, August 21 @ 20:00:21 EDT
Topic: Half-Life 2

Here it is, the first release of SourceOP. While it is a beta version, it has been tested on the official server and privately for weeks prior to the release. I'm comfortable that it will run stable and mostly bug free. Please post any bugs you find on the forums (crashes, minor bugs, typos, anything). You can download it by going to the download section, or by clicking here. After installing it is recommended that you use the admin tutorial to set yourself up as full admin. The tutorial is only available on the first map SourceOP is started on and is only available once. The admin tutorial is helpful and prevents having to edit the DF_admins file if all you want to do is to set yourself up as admin. Click here for help on installing.
