FS2NetD / 24 hour dedicated in-game join server
« on: October 25, 2005, 09:18:51 PM »
Very nice idea! I guess to make it real you will need to do some (or more ;)) changes in current FS2 / FS2Open netcode. To allow in-game joining (it's started in SCP but not finished yet) and allow server to play mission with noone on board (alone). It's not look to be a VERY BIG issue for a good programmer, but there can be some problems with current mission system...

I would like it to be an TvT mission (because I loved TvT competitions :)), but it can make problem for the in-game joining. What problem?! Main problem of in-game joining in TvT mode: how to choose team (green / red) when you join it in-game. Idea for solution: join to game as observer / spectator of green (for better orientation) and then enter (like a msg to other ppl) command like: /join red.

If it's will be a Co-operative mission, the in-join problem is back. How to choose wing?! There is seems that this problem not involved only with Dog-Fights mode. I'm sure that's why SCP begin to create in-join option for Doggy mode firstly ;).

Other problems?! Yes... i think. And this involves every mode - how to choose ship and weapons when you join in-game?

BTW. If you wish to set up a traditional standalone server now, just launch -standalone with Tom's Old Engine Build. It's working.

FS2NetD / FAQ + How to get started using FS2NetD

I'm not quite sure, but it can be cause by some FS2Open 3.6 files called: ilut.dll, ilu.dll, devil.dll (like in my own case). I have got "hack file" untill I deleted those 3 files, uninstall FS2Open 3.6 and then install FS2Open release in 3.6.7 version (the most stable release I ever played :yes: ). 3.6.7 version don't required this 3 dll files so there is no problem :nod:.

Best when you install 3.6.7 (+Launcher 5.3) just after fresh install of FS2. Now it runs great!

Hello every1. I was about registering few months ago : ) and finally got here now. I'm polish community center admin (link is in sig.) and leader of Squadron 303. Some old veteran PXO players can remember me. I'm very ambiciuos and very want-to-do-anything-for-FS guy! ;) I look for ppl to play in MP everyday. If someone is up and want to play (/me prefers TvT, but Coops is fine too) tell me about it : ).

BTW. Good to see another board full of FS fans in these days :nod::yes:.
