If I want to set up my own server, how can I do it? Everytime I make one, it doesn't show up on Xfire or the master server...
If its an CoD2 Server make sure you have the following in your servers config file: // Master Server List seta sv_gamespy "1" seta sv_master1 "cod2master.activision.com" seta sv_master2 "master0.gamespy.com" seta sv_master3 "master1.gamespy.com" seta sv_master4 "cod2authorize.activision.com" seta sv_master5 "cod2master.infinityward.com" seta sv_master6 ""
COD2 doesnt require the Master Server list, as it is encoded into the game (in the binaries). If it isnt appearing there will be another reason for it then that.
When you 'make a server', what do you do? i want to determine what type of server you are starting, as one particular type of server (listern server) doesnt show in the lists.
your other option of course is to have another computer running 24/7 and run a dedicated server from that but only if you're really serious about it.
