    GCFS?
    Uh, could you explain more?
    I am pretty clueless, since the wiki page tells me nothing. :s

    The wiki page is outdated and will be updated next week.

    We're also working on a comprehensive server setup guide.

    I have made some .bat scripts that makes installing an empires server easier (maybe Scar has given you it already):
    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/2000188/empires/Empires-Server-Installer.zip
    Be sure to read the readme.txt

    Those instructions are for an older version of empires and are out of date.
    I added a notice to that page to say it's out of date to stop confusion for other people.

    Empires doesn't use GCF files any more so you won't find any to extract.

    put this in a notepad and save it as empires.bat

    srcds.exe -console -game yourfolder\empires +ip yourserveriphere -port yourport +map emp_crossroads +maxplayers 50 -insecure

    put whatever you want your start map to be after +map and the amount of slots you want after +maxplayers

    put the empires.bat file in the common folder or Empires folder, I forgot which.
    to start the server just double click the empires.bat file

    Welp, I have a problem with the "Update Source 2013 Server.bat"

    "ILocalize::AddFile() failed to load file "public/steambootstrapper_english.txt""
    "!!! Fatal Error: Steam needs to be online to update. Please confirm your
    network connection and try again."

    I guess it's SteamCMD's fault?

    You could try downloading a new steamcmd and replacing steamcmd.exe with the new one.
    Or maybe your firewall is blocking it?

    Oh yeah, it can be the firewall.
    Thanks.

    Thanks.

    And hopefully the last problem, I can't join my server.
    It's just retrying. I'm using the public IP.

    do you see it on the steam list of servers? I don't..If not, there are a bunch of ports you need to open to see it and for public to join

    I think this are the ports:
    Steam Client
    UDP 27000 to 27015 inclusive (Game client traffic)
    UDP 27015 to 27030 inclusive (Typically Matchmaking and HLTV)
    TCP 27014 to 27050 inclusive (Steam downloads)
    UDP 4380

    Dedicated or Listen Servers
    TCP 27015 (SRCDS Rcon port)

    Steamworks P2P Networking and Steam Voice Chat
    UDP 3478 (Outbound)
    UDP 4379 (Outbound)
    UDP 4380 (Outbound)
