hi everyone, i'm new here. i've never played Crysis but i bought Crysis Warhead 2 weeks ago. i liked the game so much i started running a dedicated server. the server runs great, been getting decent traffic too. i had some questions for you all:
1 - i'm running a Crysis Wars server with a custom map. aren't there some "re-direct url" and "allow download" commands i need in my cfg's so that everyone else can download the map via my server? my friends can't download the map via the server. they get an error message saying "Could not find map...".
i made sure the map directory is in the " ...\Game\Levels\Multiplayer\IA\..." directory. and, it is an IA map.
2 - what's the server command needed to make the spawn weapon an SMG or a SCAR instead of a pistol in Crysis Wars? and which config file does it go in?
3 - what's the server command to enable binoculars and night vision when players spawn?
hopefully you all can help. thank you very much,
well thx anyway folks. i got the answer to question #1. still searching for the answers to the other 2 questions. i'm sure they'll turn up somewhere.
by the way, does anyone know how to make your server send "on-screen" text to all the players during the game every 3 or 4 minutes?
heheh, ur gunna have to move up to LUA. its not CFG that makes u spawn that stuff. i am -CS-Strickland, an advanced LUA using admin in wars :mihailhatesu:
im just telling you that its nto a simple command that wll do that, i would never recoomaend getting warhead before the original.
first i want to say thank you for responding itachi. i'm new and show up here asking all these questions. some may assume that i didn't search and search first before asking questions but i did, tirelessly. to no avail. perhaps i was looking in the wrong places for the wrong types of answers. at any rate, thank you again for at least being nice enough to type a response.
about LUA, i realize it's a programming language and i'm not a programmer but if you can tell what needs to be done i can do it.
everything i've read about LUA in the crysis and crysis wars forums seems to be about restricting items, not adding them. i downloaded ZZastrada.pak from Hawkeye's Crysis SSM site and i could make assumptions about what to do with this .pak file but then i'd look even more like an idiot.
again, if you or anyone else here can provide some direction i can do what needs to be done.
the file to edit is: Crysis Wars\Game\GameData.pak\Scripts\GameRules\PowerStruggleRank.lua
It would be great if you had posted the answer to number one after finding it. Could you please do that? How do I make the server enable downloading of custom maps?
