Running Dedicated server it starts up, now how to connect to play in it?
Just remember what you named the server when you started it. Go to Halo multiplayer and browse the server list. Sort it alphabetically instead of by ping so you can find it easier. Alternatively, if you know the IP of the server, you could just join though that.
The name is not showing in the list. Here is what I did: Installed Halo_DS_1_02 Then Ran haloded.exe Its hows my conslo and my mapcycle, server name and says its started This is what My INIT file looks like: sv_name sufication sv_maxplayers 10 sv_mapcycle_timeout 15 sv_public true sv_mapcycle_add bloodgulch "TS Edit" sv_mapcycle_add wizard "SG" sv_mapcycle_add dangercanyon "TS Edit" sv_mapcycle_add hangemhigh "Chaos" sv_mapcycle_add bloodgulch "CTF Custom" sv_mapcycle_add wizard "SG" sv_mapcycle_add sidewinder "CTF Custom" sv_mapcycle_begin Hafter it is started : I run Halo Goto: Multiplayer Internet Games Get List My server is not listed 2nd attemped, Try Direct IP to my own IP with Port 2302 Tries 5 times and says unable to connect to server? Is there anything i am doing wrong like is my INIT file not right? anyways thanks for you help, hopefully I will get er goin soon...lol -Midian
I think 1.02 is outdated. Isn't 1.07 the current version?
1.07 is the current version
Ok, do you have to buy Halo dedicated server or is there somewhere you can d/l it?
Just look around websites. I thought Microsoft's site had it, though I'm not sure. Check Halofiles, Halomods, stuff like that.
Ok one more shot at this. I got the ded file newest ont that showed on the Halo website, says 1.06, the only 1.07 i found was was actually Halo Game update. So I applied the filed to the Halo Server Map. Started the Console it loads like every othertime it did b4. He is how console looks when opeened: Reading ban list file (C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\My G ames\Halo\banned.txt). sv_name: sufication sv_maxplayers: 10 15 true >>bloodgulch TS Edit >>wizard SG >>dangercanyon TS Edit >>hangemhigh Chaos >> bloodgulch CTF Custom >>wizard SG >>sidewinder CTF Custom sv_name: sufication sv_maxplayers: 10 sv_public_value: 1 Dedicated server is running on map bloodgulch (0 / 10 players) Use the 'sv_end_game' command to stop the game. halo( ------------------ Problem, Does not show in list of servers in Game, Cant find it in Game Spy, Cant Connect to it by IP and i left it running for hours and nobody ever joined once. I Am completley baffled on wtf is goin on. I never set up a Dedicated server b4, but I have followed every direction possible that I could find, and I am 90% sure i set it up right. Basicly herer are my questions. 1. Can you connected to your own dedicated server? 2. Does my INIT File i posted above look proper? 3. Is it worth it ?( I Host games 95% of the time i play, Love it and ussually get good connection but hate having to do all the map/game style changes manually after every game), I was led to believe that this would be answer to all my problems but it is turning out to be the biggest problem of all. Another reason i was hoping to get dedicated server going is for my Bro , and Father they like to play on my server but if i am not around i got no server goin'. I know alot of this is useless information and alot of rambling on, i just want to make sure anyone who can help get s the most info from me on What, How, and why i doing this, and wanna make sure this is good idea for what i was looking for. P.S.
Any people reading this thread please read my second post on thread so you see all info relating to whats up. Thanks So Much
