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 really need the full server command list, such as ban ip couz there are some annoying souls out there f**king with my servers

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?

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 net_ip 24.222.182.144

set net_port 28070

 

 

set sv_hostname "www.grammarrangers.com"

set sv_maxclients 16

set sv_zone FFA

set sv_timeout 15

 

set sv_master! "masterjk2.ravensoft.com"

 

set rconpassword *******

set timelimit 15

set fraglimit 30

set logfile 1

 

set g_motd "Computers are cool, but ****ing suck too"

set g_gametype 0

set g_forcerespawn 0

set g_weaponrespawn 15

 

// 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"

 

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.

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.

seta rconpassword "!" - What is this by the way?

 

it should be

 

seta rconpassword "whatyouwant"

 

the rcon is for remote administration

so you could actually launch the game and put

rconaddress <serverip:port>

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?

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?

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.
