hi my name is eran i got a t2 connection and a spare computer, and i want to host a server at my other comp. but i want it to be a pro server i mean with punkbuster updated and the right protection can somone give me a gukde or help me?
thats all well and good. pb will help with the protection and assist in updating pb and streaming to them. but you will need a few things and here is as good a place as any. first decide on a mod (for admin) there are 3 main contenders for this roc mod, osp and goldrush. all are for the gold version (1.03) if you want to run pb you must use this version of sof2. then you need to decide on the settings for your server. things like mapcycle, available weapons, stock and/or custom maps, any extra sounds and so on. then how to let people know what you are running. do you have any free webspace with your isp. make a small website with links so people can get what they need. and set up a motd to tell people were to go for the info. do you make it pure or unpure with or without downloads enabled. what about voting enabled or disabled? i could go on but you get the idea. any questions feel free to ask ;). and before anyone say that is to much info. he did say he wants his server to be pro!!!
yehe i do want my server to be a pro server :) but one thing i dont know how to start? and how to configure all those stuff u said here
then you are at the right place m8. thats what we are here for. i would say the best place to start is decide on a mod. if its traffic you want osp (a good mod especally for compation modes) or roc (very flexable) are the mods to look at. and both are available on soffiles.com if its extra gametypes, comunity maps and a world of options then goldrush is the mod for you goldrush has bots built in but the other 2 do support bots in 1 way or another. so i would download roc and osp to start and do what most people do not do and that is read the readme files. any questions you have after that or if you are unsure feel free to ask here ;)
just 1 quashtion if i already have the game and have osp (i guss) cuz im playing those servers do i still need to dl it?
if you have not downloaded it from soffiles or some one else other than a game server i would download it again. just for the readme files and so on. i cannot stress enough how important those files are. they will act as a guide and refrence for you. and will prove invaluable. also forgot this. this is a link to punkbuster updater. get the version for your operating system then run it. suggest you do this after your server is set up. as you have a bit of work infront of you but np with that we will assist. http://www.evenbalance.com/index.php?page=pbsetup.php
I didn't make it!
Does someone really read the posts on this forum? I need help, please check the thread below this. Sorry
woooow i dl the osp... and i now reading the readme file... so much i didnt know... thenk you! i got just one problom... how can i know the punkbuster is updated at my server? how can i configure the pb so i can not autokick same cdkey and do i need to do somthing specal so the pb will work other than that io have one (ithink... i play the game)
using the utillity i linked to in my last post will give you option of updating every game you have that supports pb. as for the same cd key there is a pb command to relax guids. i am sure ace will sort that out for you or you could read the docs that come with pb. or even visit the sites ace gave you in his post up there ^
Goodyto andy simmons. i have already answered you thread. yes people do read the forums here, what you need to understand is this is not a official support forum. any replies are done by volenteers and hijacking other threads is a good way to get ignored by those volenteers.
This is true. You have recieved an answer to your query, we are all volunteers here, you could always go to raven's forums, but i guarantee you will get an answer here much faster than there. Thanks again to Goody [/editedby]
