S! all

I need some help with running a dedicated server.
I have installed everything, and have set it up so I can run it via. Hyperlobby. I can host the mission, and can actualy see people join and speak to them through the console.
I am also able to load up a mission using the correct command.
However all the clients say that once the mission is loaded, nothing else happens. They are not able to select their plane or anything. The game just stops on Mission loaded.

Am I missing something out? Is there a command i have to do to start the mission?
Once I have launched the server through HL, it loads and I use the command
mission LOAD net/dogfight/1/USAUKvsJPN.mis, that command works fine, but is there something else im missing?

This is from the Sturmovik Essentials thread stickied here in GD:


Forgotten Battles Daemon by Sammie and BadBernie, invaluable for objective oriented missions in FB online servers.:

Info regarding how to use to the DS with hyperlobby:

http://wildhoney.nightmail.ru/il2fb/

A tutorial of sorts for setting it up and getting it running:

I think Ivan posted a more current link the other day too, maybe he will repost it so we can bookmark it.

In order to host a game in HL I need to use FBserver program. But in turorial it is said that "only those players who also have FBServer installed will be able to connect to your server". I didn't have FBServer installed and I played on dedicated servers on HL before.

Second question. I tried to run the server, but FBServer gives me a message that network can't be inisiated. I'm trying to host behind the firewall and I forwarded 21000 port to the computer from which im trying to run a server.

Z machine, WildHoneys app is not neccessary anymore. It was used only with Original release of dedicated server, where IP retreaval was an issue. It was fixed in the following patch.

Kozhedub: In combat potential, the Yak-3, La-7 and La-9 fighters were indisputably superior to the Bf-109s and Fw-190s. But, as they say, no matter how good the violin may be, much depends on the violinist. I always felt respect for an enemy pilot whose plane I failed to down.

At UBI my dedicated server launches AEP 2.01 to the FB 1.22 room . I highlight 2.01 but it launches to 1.22 room. FB 1.22 room is full of 2.01 games. I guess I'm not alone. It works and you can join the game . It dose put up a warning up saying game is different version and would you like o join anyway. I would like it to be in the 2.01 room. My regular flyers won't look in 1.22 room. Is this a Bug or are we doing somthing wrong ?



Thanks...............

Another quick Q for those in the know

Is there a file where I can set all of the difficulty options? At the moment, everytime I loadup the server I have to manualy change every difficulty setting to how I want it. They always revert back to the default "easier" settings.
