FAQ probs met BF 1942 en DC

Bericht door Beetlejuice » Do Okt 07, 2004 9:16 pm

Even een kleine FAQ in de trend van goed gejat
is beter dan slecht bedacht. ;)
Voor desert Combat zie volgende link


Inleiding
Deze FAQ is bedoeld voor mensen die problemen hebben met het draaien van Battlefield 1942, en eventuele mods. Deze FAQ bevat vaak voorkomende vragen en oplossingen. Lees vooral ook de Readme file van de Battlefield 1942 installatie.

Help! BF1942 loopt vast, wil niet starten enz!
Welk probleem je ook hebt, hier eerst een overzicht met acties die altijd willen helpen.

-Zijn je systeemeisen voldoende?
Battlefield 1942 is best een zwaar spel en draait niet op iedere computer. Je hebt minimaal een P2 nodig, maar een Pentium 3 of hoger is sterk aan te raden. Ook heeft battlefield veel geheugen (RAM) nodig, minimaal 128 MB, maar 512 MB is geen overbodige luxe! Je hebt een grafische kaart nodig die compatibel moet zijn met DirectX 8.1. Er moet minimaal 32 MB geheugen opzitten en hij moet T&L ondersteunen. Prima videokaarten zijn: Gforce 2 of hoger, Radeon 8500 of hoger. Voor top prestaties haal je natuurlijk een Gforce4 of Radeon 9700 of hoger. De install van BF1942 neemt ongeveer 1 GB in beslag, maar denk aan mods en maps die je wilt installeren, die nemen veel ruimte in beslag! Verder is het noodzakelijk wat ruimte over te houden voor de windows pagefile (500 MB tot 1 GB.) Om online te kunnen gamen is een 56k modem minimaal, aan te raden is een ADSL of kabelverbinding. Windows XP of 2000 is sterk aan te raden. Ook Windows 98 en Millenium zijn goed, maar onder Windows 95 gaat Battlefield niet (goed)werken!
[edit] Door de vele updates en patches is Battlefield Desert Combat nogal wat zwaarder geworden.
Om lag-vrij te spelen is minimaal 512mb toch wel een vereiste.
Ook op videokaart gebied is het wat zwaarder geworden.
Een Geforce 2 is onvoldoende eerder valt te denken aan een Geforce 5500 en hoger.


-Update alles wat er te updaten valt!
Installeer de laatste service pack voor je windows. Update je video drivers, je chipset drivers, en je DirectX versie. En last but not least: Download de laatste Battlefield 1942 patch.
In het geval van mods: Download ook de laatste versie van de mod. Als er een nieuwe Battlefield versie uitkomt is het vaak zo dat je mods niet meer werken, die hebben dan ook een update nodig. Vaak duurt het een paar dagen voordat die uitkomt.

-Overige tips:
Defragmenteer je harde schijf, als je dit lang niet meer gedaan hebt zul je zien dat battlefield een stuk beter loopt.
Koop het spel :) Klink misschien stom, maar de meeste problemen worden veroorzaakt door cracks en dergelijke. Dus als je een illegale kopie hebt van het spel, hier de oplossing: koop het spel want hij is het echt waard!

Mijn geluid kraakt/stoort/klinkt bagger!
Als eerste: Download de nieuwste battlefield patch. Battlefield heeft veel soundissues, waarvan gelukkig de meesten met patches zijn weggewerkt. Helaas niet allemaal. Als je geluid nog steeds niet goed is, speel dan met de hardware acceleration optie in battlefield (bij options, sound, 2e pagina) Zet het aan of uit en kijk of dit helpt. Update eventueel je soundcard drivers. Als iemand nog meer tips heeft over sound issues hoor ik het graag!

Battlefield crasht gelijk terug naar de desktop zonder melding!
Waarschijnlijk heb je een refresh rate fix draaien. Geen probleem, ga naar de map \Mods\bf1942\Settings (in de battlefield map) en open het bestand VideoDefault.con met notepad. Pas de onderste regel aan:
renderer.allowAllRefreshRates 0
Verander de 0 in een 1, dus zo:
renderer.allowAllRefreshRates 1
Sla het bestand op, en probeer het nog maar eens :D

Mod **** (vul in) geeft de melding currupt data
Dit gebeurd vaak als er net een nieuwe versie uit is. De desbetreffende server is dan niet geupdate. Zoek een andere server of wacht een paar dagen. Zorg in elk geval dat je zelf steeds de nieuwste versie hebt van zowel battlefield als de mods.

Ik krijg de melding invalid CD-key!
Als je een illegale kopie hebt is dit logisch, koop het spel. Zo niet, probeer dan het volgende:
DE-installeer het hele spel en alles erbij. Reboot je systeem, en haal vervolgens alle verwijzingen naar battlefield1942 uit je register. Dit is niet eenvoudig, je kunt een programma als RegClean gebruiken. Handmatig kan het ook, maar dit is alleen aan te raden voor gevorderde gebruikers!
Herstart je computer opnieuw, en installeer Battlefield overnieuw. (vergeet de updates niet!)
Dan moet het werken.

Waar zitten de onderzeeërs?
De onderzeeërs zitten onder andere in: Guadalcanal, battle of midway.
Je pakt een onderzeeër door erop te spawnen, het is een enkel spawnpunt die in het water ligt.
Onderzeeërs zijn echt ideaal om slagschepen mee te laten zinken!

Server Admin FAQ
September 4, 2002
Server Admin FAQ v1.0
Make sure you\'re running a dedicated server and not playing on the server,
that will really impact performance on your \'net game (although LAN it
works okay).

SERVERS
Set your BANDWIDTH LIMIT on the ded. server. This limit is your total
allowed bandwidth for your server. So, if you\'re on a DSL connection,
you\'d limit your server to 256 kB/s.

CLIENTS
Set your connection type (under MULTIPLAYER>INTERNET) to reflect HOW
you\'re connecting to the \'net, or one step lower. If you\'re on a modem,
don\'t have this checked as a LAN...you won\'t enjoy the experience as much.

NOTE: Keep an eye on http://www.ea.com/eagames/official/batt ... 2/home.jsp
for more information to be posted as we get it.

Thanks to g8 for the following FAQ. We\'ve taken the liberty of re-ordering
it and adding some more information
1. How many users can I have on my server? How big of a connection do
I need?

These are our current estimates, err on the high side, and aim for
best performance (sure you could get more on less but that\'s when you get
laggy/crummy servers):

\'How big\' primarily depends on bandwidth. A *good* DSL connection (1.5/768)
can handle about 8-10 players MAX. Slower DSL (such as residential 1.5/256)
would only be able to support about 4 players at best (same for cable as that
is usually 256 to 384 on the upload). If you have a 1 Mb SDSL connection (or
1 Mb on your cable upload) you should be able to support a 12 player server

As a rough rule of thumb, each player requires anywhere from 50 to 80 KBps.
You need a *minimum* of a T1 to support a 16 player server, dual T1 (3 Mb)
for a 32 player server, and just over 6 Mb for a 64 player server (although
that can hit up to 7 or 8 Mb/sec depending on how many people are connecting
and downloading maps). Basically you need some serious bandwidth for anything
over a 16 player server and it should be dedicated hardware (i.e. it\'s only a
server, no GUI or other apps running on it).

As far as the hardware, here is a rough estimate/guide of what kind of server
to host on what kind of bandwidth:


CPU/NETWORK 128kbit 256kbit 512kbit T1(1.4Mbit) > 2Mbit 10Mbit > T3(45Mbit)
PIII 500 2 4 8 12 12
PIII 800 2 4 8 20 20
PIII 1300 2 4 8 24 32
PIV 2000 2 4 8 24 64


General rule of thumb:
Cable Modem: 4 - 6 players.
DSL Line: 8 - 10 players
T1+ 16 - X players. (X is dependant on your connection)


THE SERVER WILL CONSUME 85 TO 100% OF YOUR CPU. This means YOU CANNOT RUN AN
INTERNET SERVER ON AND PLAY FROM THE SAME MACHINE. SERVERS MUST BE DEDICATED FOR
OPTIMAL AND PROPER PERFORMANCE.


2. How do I run a dedicated server without having to enter my info into the
DedicatedServer.exe every time?

You need to enter the server config parameters into its config file. The file is
called ServerSettings.con, located in Settings folder for the application
(usually C:\\Program Files\\EA GAMES\\Battlefield 1942 Multiplayer Demo\\Settings).
The DedicatedServer.exe can be used when first setting up the server, then you
can manually edit the ServerSettings.con after the first time it is run. See
this post from Saracen (thanks!):
pub30.ezboard.com/fceandbfcommunityfrm3.showMessage?topicID=1235.topic for a full
descrption of the server config file options.

DO NOT USE DedicatedServer.exe MORE THAN ONCE if you do not want to enter your info
every time you start the server. You must start the server from a shortcut which
starts the game as a server, or start the server as a service (more below), or write
a batch file to start the server (FAQ-todo). The simplest method is to modify the
shortcut file on your desktop to include the following switches:

+restart 1 +hostServer 1 +dedicated 1

So the Target for the shortcut would look like:

\"C:\\Program Files\\EA GAMES\\Battlefield 1942 Multiplayer Demo\\BF1942Demo.exe\" +restart
1 +hostServer 1 +dedicated 1

Rename that shortcut to something apropriate like \'BF1942 MP Demo Server\' and double
click it. The server should launch with the settings you entered into the
ServerSettings.com file.


3. How do I setup my server behind a firewall?

If you do not care about (or want) the server being listed in Ga*spy, then you only
need to open udp port 14567 into your network. If you are behind a firewall/router that
is also doing NAT, you will need to port forward udp port 14567 from your firewall/router
to your internal server. On some routers you may also make your server a \'DMZ\' host which
effectively puts the server on the outside of the firewall. However, please realize that
exposes your server and all of its potentially open ports (and exploitable code) to the rest
of the dirty public internet

If you do want your server to be listed in Gamespy you will need a number of additional ports
opened up:

allow udp port 14567
allow udp 22000 (THIS IS ONLY FOR LAN GAMES. If you don\'t want that accessible from the net,
don\'t open it)
allow udp range 23000 23009
# Gamespy Master Server UDP Heartbeat
allow udp port 27900
# Gamespy Master Server List Request
allow tcp port 28900

In addition you may or may not need to open the ports listed in the \"Working Around the
Firewall / Proxy\" section of this Gamespy page: http://www.gamespyarcade.com/support/firewalls.shtml
(thanks to mibsc123 for the link)


4. How do I set the admin password and use remote commands?

You must first set the server admin password at the server console. Get in front of the server/black
window and hit the ` key to bring up the console (also called the ~ key). This will take the
console out of status display mode (where it shows you FPS) and into entry mode where you can
enter console commands. When you get the > prompt, type:

admin.enableremoteadmin

where is any password of your choice that is all numbers OR letters, BUT NOT BOTH
AND NO SPACES!

After you have set the password on the server console, you can use the same command from your
client when you connect to the server. So, fire up your game and connect to your server. Now
open the console ingame with the ` key and issue the following command:

admin.enableremoteadmin

where is the password you set before at the server console.

You should now be authed as an admin and able to issue remote commands. To issue a remote
command, use the following command:

admin.execremotecommand \"command\"

where command is any command you would normally run from the server console. For example,
to kick a user number 15 you would issue this:

admin.execremotecommand \"admin.kickplayer 15\" or to ban player 15:
admin.execremotecommand \"admin.banplayer 15\"


5. How do I kick/ban people from my server?

Read #2 again if you are not sitting in front of the server/console. If you are sitting in
front of your server/console (i.e. NOT remote), then you just issue the admin command right
into the console (i.e. game.listplayers and admin.kickplayer

)
