I'm having a problem setting up a sever on SoF2. I have tried setting it up both in game and with SoF Runner. For some reason it will only show my server in the local directory instead of the internet like I set it. I have forwarded the port # 20100/20120 to my router. Seems as though nothing i try works. I have even tried unhooking the router and connecting my PC directly to the modem to eliminate the possibility that i set up the router wrong... still don't work. Can someone please help me with this... it's getting realy frustrating not being able to set up my own server so I can play on the maps i want to, when i want to :mad: .

Are you certain that no one else can see your server over the Internet? If you're checking from your computer, I'm pretty sure you'll only see it on the Local list.

:bows: yep it would show on the local only. make sure it is a dedicated internet server (the one with the green box) and post the ip and port and we will see if we can see it. also what country.

dont forget to open other ports: - mostly a pc has something like an antivirus (with an extra firewall) open those ports aswell - microsoft provides a firewall too, open those port, and try again, that should do the job

I already have the ports open for both the game and SoF Runner in my windows firewall. My antivirus doesn't have a firewall. Also i don't leave the server running all the time so it would have to be just luck of the draw that you guys are on to see it... but I'll give it a shot. The server name will be Maggot Meat and the ip/port# is 192.168.2.3:20100. I'll have it set for deathmatch for the time being. Thanks for the info guys..... hopefuly it works.

in your server.cfg, or your sof2mp.cfg you should see some lines that show master servers. Check to be sure you have all of them listed. // Master Servers seta sv_master5 "" seta sv_master4 "" seta sv_master3 "master0.gamespy.com" seta sv_master2 "clanservers.net" seta sv_master1 "master.sof2.ravensoft.com"

Now i have one more question.... can you sudgest a good unlimited ammo mod to add to it. Here are the ones I've tried that didn't work..... These 2 I read the "read me" files for instalation instructions and could not get the file extention to take in the shortcut like it says to do.: GR1MR3AP3R's Gold Infinite Ammo Mod (1.0a) GR1MR3AP3R's Infinite Ammo Mod This one cause the game to crash when i would try to log onto the server. The server would start ok.... but crash while logging in. Lone's AMMO Mod P.S. It doesn't have to be a true UNLIMITED AMMO mod..... wouldn't mind one that gives like 2500 or more rounds per weapon. I just hate the small amounts of ammo given in a normal server. I want a mod that will make it so that there is no way anyone should have to run to find a backpack or dropped weapons just to get more ammo cause they ran out. Oh yeah... it can't have any one shot "GOLDEN GUN" type weapon mods either. I hate those things. Nothing worse than coming around a corner and getting shot in the leg or arm while having full health and dying from it.

making one yourself is so easy. simply open the standard weapon.wpn file with notepad and adjust the clip size and extra clips accordingly and save it as your weapon mod name (always save the file to a diffrent location first so you do not overwrite the original) then place it in the ext_dat folder in your mods folder and name it in your server.cfg. and thats all there is to it.
