Here's some files I whipped up.

There are two generic bat files (edit them to your liking) for hosting servers (both dedicated and non-dedicated) for the full version:

Dedicated Server Template (http://www.swbattlefront.net/nitpicker/generic.bat)

Non-Dedicated (http://www.swbattlefront.net/nitpicker/non-dedicated.bat)

There's also a text file with a list of commands and map names here (http://www.swbattlefront.net/nitpicker/swbf2commands.txt).

Woah! Those Commands Helped me out a LOT with my Generator Website (Still not Scripted) Thanks Alot!

EDIT: Nevermind, they still helped though

Now if only I knew the command to modify the "respawn timer" for normal players (if such a thing is changeable)....

There are a total of 89 maps (counting the different modes and factions) in SWBF2 I think you missed a couple :roleyess:.

That WOULD be Nice, Too bad it's pretty much Impossible, have you tried anything?

Did you read the file? I didn't list every possible combination, I listed every map in the game alongside every game mode it supported. Which ones did I miss exactly?

If you or someone else wants to painstakingly write out all combinations for me, I'll paste them into the file. Deal? ;)

I made a couple of mistakes in the batch files above. But they're fixed now. So if anyone downloaded them before, please re-download. Thanks!

Space maps:

spa1 (_1flag, _con; g) - Space Yavin
spa3 (_1flag, _con; c) - Space Kashyyyk
spa6 (_1flag, _con; c) - Space Mygeeto
spa7 (_1flag, _con; c) - Space Felucia
spa8 (_1flag, _con; g) - Space Hoth
spa9 (_1flag, _con; g) - Space Tatooine

Alert! Alert! lol, Sorry But i noticed this that the _con but space maps are '_ass'

/contimelimit 20 - Conquest time limit

/ctftimelimit 20 - CTF time limit

/elitimelimit 0 - Elite mode time limit

/huntimelimit 5 - Hunt time limit

/ctfscorelimit 5 - CTF cap limit

/conreinforcements 200 - Conquest reinforcements

/elireinforcements 100 - Elite reinforcements

Tested them out, Unfortanateley:

FATAL
Cannot Open Mission/1.lvl

"1"? Which of the above did you have set to 1?

Chris-h11
11-07-2005, 12:46 AM
all the Time Limits, anyways I figured out some:


Hunt Time limit: /hunttime [value] (No brackets or whatever they are)
CTF Score Limit: /ctfscore [value] (DITTO)

P.S. I used the DS Manager to Figure out these

EDIT: I dont know how to Fix the Reinforcement Limits, But taking out "limit" Made them all work (Obvioussly Besides the Reinforcemetns)

EDIT 2: NVM I am so Confused, but the First 2 DO Work

Kurgan
11-07-2005, 12:58 AM
The reinforcement limits may be a redundancy. It's true that all of the commands have a second "name" that you see in server infos that are not the actual commands (like noaimassist vs. /noaim) themselves.

I'll remove the ones that don't work. Can you please list specifically which ones I should remove, in one list? Thanks. Sorry, I'm getting tired...

Chris-h11
11-07-2005, 01:03 AM
I'm tired too, My Servers Lag because of this Slow Processor. So it's Pretty hard to Test them. I'll work on it more Since i Need it for My Code Generator Anyways

Kurgan

By all means. Post your findings. I'll check back later and make corrections.

Thanks for your help! The files will be continually updated, so people don't have to wade through our conversation to find the useful info. ;)

Chris-h11
11-07-2005, 01:21 AM
Okay, For a Fact (Almost, I guess But pretty Sure) The Following Work:
Hunt Time limit: /hunttime [value] (No brackets or whatever they are)
CTF Score Limit: /ctfscore [value] (DITTO)

You can see all the commands by using swbf2sm.exe When you change a command then click save, that command is placed in the log file (swbf2sm.log). Open this up to view the commands.

By the way, my post about adding all the maps was sort of a joke. There are 89 possible compinations though. I wouldn't type them all out, so don't expect (or wouldn't ask) anyone else to.

Kurgan
11-07-2005, 08:01 AM
Oh ok. ;) I also have the DS file now so I'll double check that later against my list to see if there's anything else I missed.

Kurgan

Okay, EXTENSIVE update of the files complete (see the opening post). I checked them with the PC Dedicated server launcher. Not bad! Though the launcher doesn't let you change certain variables (like alter the ticket size from 200 or increase the FPS cap above 30 or change the DS resolution from 640x480) and it still forces you to use a desktop screen resolution above 1024x768 in order to see the whole thing (is making the program window resizable too much to ask?). I guess they figure we all have big high res monitors to run their servers... ;P (I rated it a 3 out of 5 on LucasFiles btw).

Btw zerted, according to the DS program, there are only 85 possible combinations for maps, not 89. ;)

Dude, If you mean Just Plain Old Maps without the _con or whatever, I haven't Counted. But if you mean all the Possible combinations you are WAY off

Dude, If you mean Just Plain Old Maps without the _con or whatever, I haven't Counted. But if you mean all the Possible combinations you are WAY off

There's actually only 24 unique maps. All the combinations yield you 85.

According to DSManager:

CW combinations: 41
GCW combinations: 44

41 + 44 = 85

http://www.swbattlefront.net/nitpicker/allmaps.jpg

That's everything.. Conquest, Hunt, 1 Flag, CTF (2 flag), Mos Eisley Heroes (actually listed as a GCW map but whatever, it's included), and the space maps (Assault & 1 Flag).

If you think I'm missing some, perhaps you're thinking of single player maps that aren't available in multiplayer?

spa2, spa4, and spa5 don't work, meaning they are probably SP only space maps.

The beta contained references to the following maps (you couldn't play them but the loading screens existed) all of which should be recognizable from SWBF1:

bes1, bes2, kas2, nab1, rhn1, rhn2, tat1, and yav2

We can only hope they are saving those for a later map pack or something...

Are any of you using SWBF2SM? If you are, please go to the forums for it and post your bugs or support the ones already posted so that we can get this tool tweaked to perfection!

Has any documentation been released yet on the dedicated server or the in-game admin?

In-game Admin, you mean like "/admin /login [your password]?

Kurgan

All the "documentation" I've done is strictly unofficial. I don't work for (or with) Pandemic/LucasArts or any of the people working on those programs. But best of luck to them!

I'm just putting up what useful info I get for everyone's benefit. ;)

I also have ONE thing that i REALLY HATE about swbf2sm.exe and it's that there is no "Randomize" for Maps.

Kramerika

Right-click on the list of maps. At the top of the menu, you will see "Randomize Order". There are a ton of other bugs though. The most major ones are that admin assignments don't seem to stick and some settings constantly get reset.

Yea, my Auto-Message often says: Admin: "*"
