i Make desktop servers for my clan...but er'body keeps crashin them. is ther a program i can use to stop the crashing or have the server com right back up after they crash?????
It's an inherent problem in using home PCs to host servers - you don't get the security updates that dedicated servers get, and even if you did you wouldn't be able to use them on a desktop operating system.
I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.
You need JK2ded.exe that is patched with q3infofix. That will keep you safe from most server-crash programs.
Also you will need a mod that fixes the in-game crash bugs. Note: these only work with 1.04 JK2.
To find the mod download, just scoll down a bit. This link also has the patched jk2ded and an auto reboot script :P
EDIT- I see from your other posts that you play 1.02 (like me) so there is not alot of ways to stop an in-game server crash exploit. However, there is a partial fix for one of them that I can email you.
