Do any of you people who have hosted WildWest (or RtCW for that matter) use any non default settings? If so what parameters do you use?

I have been hosting Ignacio's Hacienda WW server for a month or so now, I guess. I have been using the mostly standard config file, but I edited it to make sure that downloads were turned off (bandwidth), and I changed the MOTD to personalize it. I lowered the maxrate to 3750 at Hewster's recommendation. Other than that, it is pretty much standard.

BTW..I had a major hard drive crash on my game server, and lost everything, including the shortcut settings for my "start WW server" icon, you the + dedicated stuff that you type in after the executable. Where can I find that?

I'll can post the parameters from home but I'll have to look them up. Would you be open for a few requests for your config file?

This is from my .bat file I use to start my server:

wolfMP.exe +set dedicated 2 +set sv_punkbuster 1 +set com_hunkMegs 64 +set com_zoneMegs 24 +set vm_game 0 +set fs_game WildWest +exec WildWest_server.cfg

Well there you have it. What is the " downloads were turned off " setting? Would the server send any missing textures or maps if it was on?

Hewster,

Yes, Yes, Yes, that's it!!! I was trying for hours to find it!! Thank you Mr. Frodo, thank you...oh wait, wrong genre...sorry. ;-)

Got my server back up now. I needed to put the WW server start in my startup folder so it would start back up after a reboot. Central Florida has a lot of power outages, and I don't have a UPS yet.

Queeg, this is what I am using now, up to the Linux part, I didn't make any changes after that:

//These are suggested configs for running a wildwest server // this files is executed when you choose 'run server' in the mods startup window. // Hewster 18th March2003

set gamename "WildWest" seta g_motd "Welcome to Ignacio's Hacienda-USA" sets "Config File" "WildWest_server" seta sv_hostname "Ignacio's Hacienda-USA" sets "URL" "www.the-wildwest.co.uk" sets mod_url "www.the-wildwest.co.uk" seta sv_maxclients "20" seta g_needpass "0" seta g_password "" seta rconpassword "" // rcon password seta g_voteFlags "95" seta g_antilag "1" seta sv_punkbuster "1" seta cl_punkbuster "1" seta g_allowvote "1" seta g_respawnInvulnerability "4" seta g_inactivity "360" seta sv_maxRate "3750" seta g_forcerespawn "30" seta sv_fps "20" seta sv_reconnectlimit "3" seta g_warmup "20" seta sv_zombietime "30" seta g_redlimbotime "30000" seta g_bluelimbotime "30000" seta g_voiceChatsAllowed "4" seta g_complaintlimit "3" seta g_soldierChargeTime "20000" seta g_LTChargeTime "40000" seta g_engineerChargeTime "30000" seta g_medicChargeTime "45000" seta sv_allowDownload "0" seta sv_allowAnonymous "0" seta g_doWarmup "1" seta sv_floodProtect "1" seta g_friendlyfire "1" seta g_teamForceBalance "0" seta g_noTeamSwitching "0" seta sv_pure "1" seta r_vertexLight "0" seta g_synchronousclients "0" seta g_teamAutoJoin "0" seta g_altStopwatchMode "0" seta g_adaptrespawn "0" seta g_smoothClients "0" seta sv_padPackets "0" seta g_enableBreath "0" seta g_fastres "0" seta g_enforcemaxlives "1" seta sv_lanforcerate "1" seta dmflags "0"

If I had a higher speed connection, I might let people download, but I only have 256k upload on my DSL. Plus I am not totally sure what all gets uploaded, or how that is accomplished, I think I was just told by someone to leave it set to 0.

Does this help?

Let me know if you need anything else.

Ignacio
