Server Hosting Information?
Posted 27 May 2012 - 10:05 AM
If such a resource doesn't exist, here are some specific questions.
1. I used hldsupdatetool to download the server, and when I run the "dedicatedserver.exe" under bin32, the server seems to start up correctly. However, when I run the nexuiz client, I can't seem to find the server under any lists (online or lan party mode). I tried using "connect serverip" in the console, and that gave me some error about the session being no longer available. How am I supposed to join the dedicated server?
2. How can I configure the dedicated server for a bot match? with only 4 people, we figure it'd be fun to fill in the extra slots with bots, or even better, do humans vs bots.
3. How can I configure mutators on the dedicated server? For example, choose a certain list of dynamic mutators, or edit the list of dynamic mutators...for example, what if I just wanted instagib on the entire match?
Thanks for any help everyone.

I'd still appreciate a link to how to configure a server (maplist, modes, bots, mutators, etc) as I have no idea how to make this server do anything but the default.

at the server prompt, you can use "?command" to get more info on commands. also, you can tab autocomplete.
i believe that all mutator options start with something like "mtr_", all server options start with "sv" and weapon option start with "wea". The names of each one should describe their purpose. These are just off the top of my head, so please don't be surprised if something is wrong.
In order to have them as a permanent change, add the changes you want to make to the end of the server's "system.cfg" file in the base directory of your server's files. I hope this helps!
btw, I believe there are a couple of weapons which are slightly buggy to change, but i'm not sure which.

Do bots work on the dedicated server? I've got bot_enabled set to 1, and even set bot_difficulty and bot_DefaultDifficulty , but they don't spawn...is there a command I'm missing?
Also, can you give me another example of the ?command syntax? It isn't behaving as I'd expect.
For example, I tried ?sv_restart expecting to get an explanation of the restart command, but it just returned the command.

and to use the "?command" ....and example would be as follows: if you type in "?sv_" than press enter, the server will return a list of all commands that start with "sv_". just as the server would return all commands that being with "mtr" if you typed in "?mtr" and pressed enter.
