Changing Maps On Dedicated Server

Recommended Posts

 

Well finally figured out after like 5yrs. of playing NOLF2, how to run a dedicated server.

Everything workd fine and all... but I just can't get the maps to change after they end.

It just stops, acts like it's changing maps, then restarts the same map!

Which makes me have to physically go to the server and change the map manually.

Also, when setting up the server, I noticed after you put in all your custom maps on the right column... it has two options at the bottom of that column... "loop" & "Yes".

But they're greyed out, and I can't figure out what they are for, or how to "un-grey them out" and make em workable.

I hope I made sense.

Any ideas and help guys...?

 

Thanks!

Easist way is to edit your missions.txt file under profiles.

 

Make sure the Loopmissions is set to =1

 

then your maps should cycle just fine.

I'm gonna guess...

You're running DM Dedicated server, loads of custom maps starting with Animal House.

If so, get rid of Animal House and try again.

 

Nope. Just running like 6 maps from the standard custom mappaks.

No "Animal House" in there though. (never heard of it)

I dunno wut the problem could be.

Maybe I'm setting it up or running it wrong...?

I went in the server config, added 6 maps, didn't really change much other than the maps and added it to a named campaign... "Heywood's Joint". Then I hit "Launch".

It closes out the game and opens the server, I reopen the game, hit DM, it queries servers, I hit mine, and I play. But it just doesn't cycle thru the maps. It just ends, and when it goes to change maps... it starts the same map again.

I can manually change them... but it's a pain in the 'donkey' that way, and makes me have to leave the very end of a game as the clock is countiong down.

So... I dunno WTF to do...

HELP!!!!

have you tried using the C:\Program Files\Fox\No One Lives Forever 2\NOLF2Srv.exe to launch your server?

 

Also check your cfg files under profiles pick the one you're using (example player) inside player would be the DD_Campaigns and the DM_Campaigns folders inside them you'd find your default_campaign.txt

 

in there is where you want the loopmissions=1 line

 

another place to check is your player.txt (the file you setup the server in)

to have the following

 

[Doomsday]

MaxPlayers = 16

TimeLimit = 20

TagScore = 1

Team1Model = 4

ReviveScore = 1

PieceRemovedScore = 2

NumTeams = 2

Team0Name = "Blue"

CampaignName = ".default"

Rounds = 1

DeviceCompletedScore = 10

Team1Name = "Red"

HeavyPiecePlacedScore = 5

FriendlyFire = TRUE

SessionName = "My Server"

RunSpeed = 140

FragScore = 2

LightPiecePlacedScore = 3

Team0Model = 12

 

make sure the bold lines above are set on your server.

As far as I can see... I don't have ANY of those "cfg" files you mentioned under Profiles.

And the only "Player.txt" file I have pretty much looks just like the example you posted.

 

And when I start it up from the "NOLFsrvr.exe"... it seems to setup and run fine, but when I log onto the game... I don't see my server in the list.

 

That "scmd" stuff escapes me. Dunno wut it is.

Wut is it, and wut is it for, and how do I use it?

 

Sorry, I'm just an old fart trying to get me damned server runnin'...

pardon me if I'm not too savvy wit dis crap.

So again... HELLLLPPPPP!!!!

Those txt files are the config files the dedicated server program uses.

Be sure to choose the one that matches the profile name of the profile that you created your DM map list with.

 

 

 

I think I remember having a similar problem with not being able to switch maps and such, try:

 

Look in Custom\Resources, count-up the number of .REZ files. If 6 or more (did I get that right? I always forget :lol: ) move one to another location, be sure that nolf is not running while moving .REZ files. Try running it again.

 

btw I'd recommend the giant mappack on the unity downloads and delete older custom mappacks to save some space.

 

 

The scmd stuff:

This is used for a player to be able to skip/set maps, set some options (friendly fire etc), kick\ban players.

This is done using the in-game chat, 1 login at a time and do so in game.

Thanks BZ.

But I only have 2 files in Custom\Resources...

UHQ_DD_N2_CUSTOM_MAPPACK.REZ and UHQ_DM_N2_CUSTOM_MAPPACK.REZ.

(BTW, these mappaks confuse me. I dunno which one is the "giant one".

I think I got the above 2 from The site that shall not be named.com... not sure... I forget now.

I used to get a big custom mappak from the jaguar clan's site, but can't find it anymore there.

I'm downloading the mapak below right now from this site as I type.

"UnityHQ_NOLF2_Mappack Version 2.0 **Updated Aug. 14, 2006**"

I hope datz it.

Cuz I also noticed that some maps just don't work, and either get a black screen, or one worked..

but made a bunch of weird noise at first starting up.

So maybe the mappaks are corrupt?

I dunno.

I also noticed that sometimes when I start my server... I log onto the game, and sometimes don't see my server running. So I shut down the game and restart it till I do see it.

And then I sometimes see a crapload of servers running... all with 65*** pings.

(forgot the exact number)

 

And also like I said previously, when I start my server directly from thee .exe file... I NEVER see it listed.

Only when I start the game, hit HOST, and then LAUNCH,

Then it closes out the game and launches the server, causing me to restart the game to play myself.

 

I'm lost in da sauce here kiddies.

"Ol Poppa Woody needs help.

And either is gonna track dis glitch down till I drop...

or give it da Hell up.

Cuz mah bones iz achin' frum it...

:blink:

The Unityhq Nolf 2 mappack is the most current map pack in the community.

 

That other place (the one that shall not be named :P ) doesn't seem to interested in keeping current with nolf 2 mappacks.

 

If you really want to host dedicated servers I could zip up some cfg files and send them to you.

Sounds like a wunnerful tinng Sweetie.

Got my email address?

If not, lemme know.

At this point I'll try anything.

Downloaded that big mappack last night, hosted, and same crrap happens.

It just restarts da same map when it's finished.

So... yeah... send em over.

Thanks Hon!

(Ummm...er... "Boss". Sorry...)
