Nolf1 server doesn't show on QTracker

5 posts in this topic

Hi Guys,

So the master server is down, and now we are all at QTracker. Inside the game I can see the list of the servers again, but when I want to host a dedicated nolf1 server I cannot see that server in the list or on oneoakway.com. I tried to run nolfserv.exe with and without compatibilty or admin rights - unfortunatly it doesn't work.
When I run the server with the "Server Companion" by URA: this one here...

...I can perfectly see my server in the list. So Port Forwarding and Firewall settings are fine. What am I missing?
 
I know that there already enough empty servers. Why a new server? My siblings found my CD's and since they're bloody beginners I help them by making a higher netintelscore on HvsU. And in the already existing servers I cannot change the points for the intel-suitcases.
And for the rare case that IF somebody would come and want to join he can, because he can see the server in the list ingame.

Hope that there are still players outside?

Greetings
John

I think its a windows 10 issue. On windows XP it works like a charm.
In windows 10 I can only see the server in the internet-list if I host the game from inside the game.

You have to update the hosts file on your server to forward the resolving of the gamespy/ old master server to the game tracker.

 

Below is the page from the qtracker site. I believe we have a topic about it already here on the forum as well.

Every computer has a file called a "hosts" file that allows you to override where server names like www.qtracker.com actually go to. The file looks and works the same way on nearly every operating system, however it's location may vary as well as the permissions required to edit this file.

On Linux/Unix systems you will find the hosts file in: /etc
The full pathname is: /etc/hosts

On Windows systems you will find the hosts file in: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC
The full pathname is: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC\HOSTS

Please note Windows can be installed on different drive letters and the WINDOWS folder may be named something other than WINDOWS. This is not typical, however.

If you are leasing a server from a hosting company, you may not have permission to modify this file in which case contact your hosting company so they can make the required changes.

The following additions need to be made to the end of the hosts file. These lines will go after anything that already exists in the file, and take care not to edit any existing lines in the file.

Here's a sample hosts file.

# Copyright (c) 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.
#
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
#
# For example:
#
#      102.54.94.97     rhino.acme.com          # source server
#       38.25.63.10     x.acme.com              # x client host

# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.

Thank you very much for your response, but Eliteone trust me, that hosts file thing was one of the very first things that I did ;)
In Windows 10 I can make a standalone server, that one is not visible to qtracker. 
However if I make a server within the nolf menu (so inside the game) it is visible to qtracker. 

Standalone Servers on windows 10 are only visible within my LAN Network, one other quirky: the grenade launcher + briefcase-rockets 'fly' faster, and when I go diving my breath and health goes away much faster. How fast: In hydro I cannot reach the briefcase, I die in the pipes.
Oh and the intelligence items appear after seconds again. 
This bug & and the network bug was for me the reason to host it only on WinXP. On WinXP it works immediatly & perfectly!

So for (possible others)...don't host it on Win10. At least it doesn't work out for me :wacko:

I'd check the Windows 10 Firewall settings for your incoming and outgoing port (that you have the server set too)  I run the UHQ servers on Windows 2008 R2 Server.
