Server questions

Recommended Posts

1.When I host a server in game it works normally...

But when i try to use the dedicated server I can't join :huh:

Port 27888 is open in the router - firewall is off.. What could be the reason?

 

2. Is there any modified/updated server version or something?

 

3. I hosted an in-game server and locked it with a pass, but someone just joined and knew the pass..

I changed it and he joined and knew it again - wtf?!

 

4. When I click Host in game (in-game server) is it a LAN server or an internet server or both (because

the guy joined :blink: )?!

 

5. When I run the server.exe there are only the standard maps and no custommaps - why?

 

*totally confused*

Q1: Open 27889 also for UDP and TCP. Prolly UDP is enough though.

Q3: You sure you are setting the SERVER password and not ONLY the SCMD password? Those are 2 different passwords in Nolf1 also I think!?

Q3: The guy might have used Gamespy Arcade, which ignores passwords. I did it myself several times i must confess.

I honestly can't imagine that. I reckon you get rejected by the host itself. Gamespy perhaps loads the game without a password, but then you should be kicked in a way you get kicked when you got the pwd wrong.

It is opened for UDP and it does work with NOLF2 and NOLF1 in-game server

 

Q3: You sure you are setting the SERVER password and not ONLY the SCMD password? Those are 2 different passwords in Nolf1 also I think!?

 

I clicked Lock Server to yes and set a password.. I don't think there is a scmd in nolf1 anyway

 

Q4:Try to run the dialog box (Launch\display\advanced\quit). Hit "advanced" than 'customize'. Than add necessary maps, enable 'always load selected rez files' and click OK. Should be working. If you already did so, than i don't know what...

 

Ok this helped thanks.

 

P.S. Wasn't your password "password"? In this case i might know the reason

 

no it wasn't password :rolleyes:

And even if he joined through Gamespy.. How could he know the pass then? (He told me the pass!!)

Edit:

Dedicated Server does work now too - Maybe it did not work because of the wrong loaded custommaps :o

According to uh well this "other" site NOLF1 MP Cheat Fix it could be a hack. I can't believe that the Nolf1 netcode is that bad. I mean the server password? Such things MUST be done on the HOST machine exclusively. NEVER ever is the HOST allowed to SEND the PWD...WHY should it?

The version 1.004 will broadcast the password to those who look for the server in gamespy. On your custom maps. If you select the always load box then select the map pack you are loading they will always load for your to select from. I'm assuming you are using the dedicated console.
