You will probably be able to start a dedicated server from within the game or from the start -> programs menu in windows.

Ps. good idea, these additions to the forums!

Good idea.
Let's hope Raven people answer some of this questions here, or release good documentation with the game.

I'll see if I can get you some answers on some of those... though many of the answers will be identical to Quake 3/Elite Force...

thanks

I'll tell server administrators here to use Elite Force as a reference for the server requirements.

Is there going to be Unix/Linux support for the dedicated server? I sure hope so, Unix >>>>> Windows for server performance.

Dedicated Server.

Here's what I've found so far:

You CAN run dedicated from the game, but for those of us who don't have a 3D card in the box, that's impossible. To run a dedicated you have to add the

"+set dedicated 1"

tag to the jk2mp.exe shortcut.

One problem I found is that it still requires the CD when it's running dedicated! Don't understand that one. This is all using Windows 2000 Adv. Server.

If you run a server from the game, you can go into the "base" directory and look for the "jk2mp.cfg" file. This file as a list of the commands it loads. I would say look through that file and find tags. A lot of them are Q3 tags. Need a map list too.

I can finally get the dedicated host to run from the command line using:

"E:\Program Files\LucasArts\Star Wars JK II Jedi Outcast\GameData\jk2mp.exe" +set dedicated 2 +exec dedicated.cfg+set

The Dedicated.cfg I copied over from EF and modified the map rotation....

But....while the server has launched to the dedicated console screen, and the game has initlaized and started, I see the following every time it attempts to send a heartbeat to the Raven master server:

NET_SendPacket: WSAECONNREFUSED

Is that why I can't see my server in the server list?

Here's my dedicated.cfg that I brought over from EF:

Rats, I thought you were onto something. Same error after it sends the heartbeat to masterjk2.ravensoft.com.

I wonder if I need to add a few things to the cfg in terms of game type and JKO related items. I'm surprised Raven hasn't posted a basic standard dedicated.CFG file to get us started. Or did they and I'm just out of the loop?

Is there any way to disable SPECIFIC Force Powers in mutliplay duel mode?

Our dedicated server wants to keep e.g. Jump, Push, Pull, Saber Throw, but dump: Drain, Lightening, Heal, Mind Trick, etc.

Anyone?

Ok, I just got my friend to check for me, and he says he did find my server on the master list. So here's my server.config if it helps anyone at all;

set d3 "map ctf_bespin ; set nextmap vstr d4"
set d4 "map ns_hideout ; set nextmap vstr d5"
set d5 "map ns_streets ; set nextmap vstr d6"
set d6 "map imperial ; set nextmap vstr d7"
set d7 "map ctf_imperial ; set nextmap vstr d8"
set d8 "map yavin ; set nextmap vstr d1"
Ok, notice I used this line that one of you guys suggested;

set sv_master! "masterjk2.ravensoft.com"

But also notice that I DID NOT use the other ones (gamespy, q3). So maybe the fix is only using ravensoft as the master? Really not sure, but that's the only change I made, and it works now

To launch the game, i just made a shortcut to my desktop of the jk2mp.exe This is what my command line looks like;

"C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Star Wars JK II Jedi Outcast\GameData\jk2mp.exe" +set dedicated 2 +exec server.cfg

I hope any of this helps. I know what a pain in the ass it can be to not get a server up and running.

Set a Password

For some reason I just can't set a password on my dedicated server, it's got no 3d Hardware so I can't bring up the interface.

I've got:

seta g_needpass "1" in my dedicated.cfg (made from the posts here)

but it keeps staying as g_needpass "0"

I try and change it "inflight" and it says it's read only.

Why won't it it read g_needpass "1" from my cfg file and set it!

HELP!!! Tearing my hair out here.

it should be

seta rconpassword "whatyouwant"

the rcon is for remote administration
so you could actually launch the game and put
rconaddress <serveriport>
and then
rconpassowrd <yourpassword>

then you do whatever you want for example changing map

rcon map duel_bay

then the server changes map

simple isn't it?

Exclamation Setting a password

To set a password for the server (aka private server), you need to use the g_password variable:

seta g_password "mypass"

changing server pw

I'm starting to rip my hair out. By default, I have a pw setup on the server

g_needpass "1"
g_password "whatever"

it works....BUT..what i want to be able to do is rcon while in the game and disable password when i feel like letting pubs in.

it won't let me alter needpass beacuse it says its read only, and setting g_password to "" won't work.

any ideas? can i not disable the pw from within the game?

What's the trick to getting a server to show up in the in-game browser?

I have masterjk2.ravensoft.com listed, and the heartbeat is being sent, but neither I nor my friends can view it. The server is behind a firewall with only UDP 28070 open to the server. My friends can add the IP address to their favorites and connect to it just fine. I just can't see to get it to list in the browser.

Are there any other ports that need to be open?

Re: In-game browser

I have the exact same problem Thistledown, it's driving me nuts.

I have seta sv_master1 "masterjk2.ravensoft.com" in my cfg, but won't show up in the in-game browser for my friends, but they can add the IP manually and play.

I am setting up a couple of duel servers on my machine, but I've run into 1 small problem, I can't get them to advertise at all. I also have an RTCW server running which advertises fine, and uses a very similar set up with .cfg files. The one thing I've noticed on this forum is in the command line some people are not specifying a port, where as others are, and there seems to be variety in how people are setting up their servers. I added in the master server line but no luck, I can't even join the game by IP. I've tried adding the IP to the command line, leaving it out, changing the port, several different things but no luck. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

try writing it like this;

set sv_master! "masterjk2.ravensoft.com"

Works for me.

set sv_master! -- exclamation point?

Tried it, still doesn't show.

The funny thing was that Thurs. night it was advertising, and it stopped Friday after I started messing with the config, so that wouldn't surpise me.


It's a Red Hat Linux server, behind another Linux server, using port forwarding to open all the ports that Kenn Hoekstra has detailed.

If it worked Thurs, but not Friday with the default .cfg, and did advertise then, so I can't figure out.

The .cfg file is set to:

set sv_master! "masterjk2.ravensoft.com"

I start the server with:

screen ./jk2ded server.cfg +map ffa_bespin

I'm stumped.

Any more tips are appreciated!

I think that sv_master! should be set to sv_master1
I noticed that when i copied the config file, changed it to sv_master1, and my server worked.

There is no problem with the raven master server, its the gamespy one provided earlier.
master0.gamespy.com:27900 is the STV Elite Force gamespy master! Hehehehehe

Someone asked earlier what rconpassword is.
Rcon is a tool you can use to administrate a server when its not running on your PC. When you are connected to your server, you can do this:
Press Shift + `(underneath Escape)
Then type this:
/rcon WHATEVER-YOU-SET-RCON-PASSWORD-TO-ON-THE-SERVER map ctf_bespin

If you typed the pass right, this should change the map to ctf_bespin.

Can someone explain the:

seta sv_privatePassword "******"
seta sv_privateClients 2

varibles to me...does that allow you to save spots on the server for specific people that have a "private password"? If I already have the server password protected (seta g_needpass "1") can I also have the private password for other reserved spaces? Thanks!

The 'seta sv_privatePassword "pass"' & 'seta sv_privateClients 2' reserves 2 slots on the server so the player slots shows up as 2 less than the 'seta sv_maxclients' setting.

Also I found out if you change seta g_password "" it remove the join password on the server and sets 'seta g_needpass 0' , so it becomes a public server.

I have my server setup using both password settings, It looks like it should works to me, but as I cannot get my server to show in the in game server browser I have not been able to test it.

Pure Server..

PURE SERVER SETTING
This is a new feature in the multiplayer setup screen. If the pure server option is "ON," then all clients must have the identical .pak file the server has. This was implemented to prevent cheating and hacking. Setting up a server with this off will enable any pak file configuration to enter the game. The .pak file is a very large compressed file that contains all of the games assets. Users can uncompress the file using the program WinZip.

But it has the potential in allowing some players to implement cheats available to them, I've seen them in practice, and they are cheats unless all players know it's available and have the equal opportunity to use it. Imagine having a radar screen on your HUD, and able to see where enemy players are behind walls and doors? You're chasing an enemy flag carrier, get to a door only to meet with an exploding rocket fired a second before the door even opened. Now it's a great tool if all the players have it, and the playing field is level.

Running sv_pure 1 protects you, the gamers, from hacked pack files and cheats that are capable via pack files. The sv_pure option works like this: if it's turned off, any pak file is visible that the client has; with sv_pure 1, however, only the pak files located on the game server are allowed on that particular server, so if you want your favorite HUD replacement available to you in game see if the server admin will load it to their baseq3 directory. Otherwise the custom HUD is rendered useless. However players with the HUD can still join and play. Since the latest point release you no longer will get kicked back to the main menu if you have other pak files; that was a bug in the code that id fixed.

One way to properly deal with this entire issue, is to make the server pure and make available to all players the special paks you will allow them to use. If you like a particular custom HUD and sound effects, put it on your web site for download. The other is to review and install submitted pak files from your player community. (side note: Please be aware, if you're an admin, you'll need to verify that the client pack files submitted to you are legit, and not pak file that may have a cheat in it.)

I have noticed that in the .cfg files you guys have 2 different set commands. I keep seeing either "set" or "seta" . I am a Counter-Strike ded. server runner, and I have never run a quake3 based server. I am trying to set up a dedicated server in win 2000, but I can't get it to load the server.cfg file. Here is what my server.cfg file looks like.

set net_ip "dhcp assigned ip, I have it set to restart the server on an ip update"
set net_port 28070


set sv_hostname "DeathsHead's 1337 Crew"
set sv_maxclients 12
set sv_zone FFA
set sv_timeout 15
set sv_
seta g_needpass "1"
seta g_password "******"

set sv_master! "masterjk2.ravensoft.com"

set rconpassword "LikeI'dGiveYouThisThatEasy"
set timelimit 30
set fraglimit 0
set logfile 0

set g_autoMapCycle 1
set g_allowvote 1
set sv_allowdownload 1
set sv_maxRate 4000
set sv_pure 1
set g_motd "Dueling is where the fun is at people!!!"
set g_gametype 0
set g_forcerespawn 0
set g_weaponrespawn 15
set g_weaponrespawn "1"
set g_adaptrespawn "1"
set sv_cheats "0"
set g_saberInterpolate "1"
set g_weaponDisable "1"
set g_spawnInvulnerability "3000"
set g_forceRegenTime "300"
set g_saberLocking "1"
set g_privateDuel "1"
set ui_freeSaber "1"




// Map Rotation
set d1 "map ffa_bespin ; set nextmap vstr d2"
set d2 "map ffa_deathstar ; set nextmap vstr d3"
set d3 "map ctf_bespin ; set nextmap vstr d4"
set d4 "map ns_hideout ; set nextmap vstr d5"
set d5 "map ns_streets ; set nextmap vstr d6"
set d6 "map imperial ; set nextmap vstr d7"
set d7 "map ctf_imperial ; set nextmap vstr d8"
set d8 "map yavin ; set nextmap vstr d1"

map ffa_bespin

The way I want to set this server up is to have a passworded server, that has all weapons but saber disabled. I want it as an ffa server, and pretty much its used mainly for dueling (I don't like duel games, too much down time, plus private duel is a lot better without the force powers other than throw and jump) The server I run it on is run through pcanywhere (usually although I can get to it physically) I have the cd in one of my cdrom drives although I am thinking about just putting it into a virtual drive so I don't have to worry about it.

My main problem is that when I try my dedicated server shorcut ("c:\blab\bla\jk2mp.exe" +set dedicated 2 +exec config.cfg ), it gives me an error about how it can't load the server.cfg file, then it uses the default server configuration, it ends up being like an 8 slot public server with all weapons. Any idea how to get this working? I am hoping its something to do with the seta and set thing in the server.cfg

Any help is much appreciated,
DeathsHead

well this is just an example how to getting an shortcut


make an shortcut, target your jk2mp.exe where ever it lays......

this is an example


"D:\spel\jedi Knight2\gamedata\jk2mp.exe" +set dedicated 2 +exec server.cfg

and the server.cfg has to be in your \jedi Knight2\gamedata\base
folder

otherwise it won't find the cfg you specified

and the SETA command is for cfgs

if its ingame you type SET not SETA

got it?

thanks. I just figured out where to put it right before you posted. I though putting it in the base directory would make clients not be able to connect due to a pure server setting, but it doesn't count configs... Anyway I appreciate your explaination of the seta command. I am used to Halflife servers and this particular server set up is a bit different. I think I have it working now...
