Quake / Re: Any pre made server packages out there?
« on: October 14, 2016, 10:39:49 AM »
Beaver I started to set up the server and I do have a few question for you. You said that the server should start in rail ffa, however I believe that it starts in CTF rail. The rwz.bat file is below.
r1q2ded +set dedicated 1 +set game ctf +set maxclients 32 +exec railwarz.cfg

So I'm just making sure that I'm not doing something that is wrong. It does start on a CTF map using the above rwz file.

Second what does DM mean as in FFA DM? Is that all weapons?

How do I make a map list? I see in the baseq2 folder the maps.lst file and I see a list of map in that file. Is that for all weapons mode and if I wanted to have a different map rotation I just go in there and edit the names?

This raises the next questions is if I want to have one map rotation for railz then another for all weapons, how do I do that? I can easily have two copies of servers, one for each game mode, and then just start the one that I wish to play.

If I want "weapons to stay", have a 10 minute time limit, and have the map end at 20 kills, where do I do this?

I think that's it for now. Thank you for all of the help.

Beaver, thank you very much for this. I'm downloading it and I'll try to set it up next week.

Hello everyone and thanks for the replies.
Yes I did post something like this about a year ago, and I just never got around to doing anything about it.
I have a dedicated box running Windows 7 that I can use to host the server.
I do have the original 3.20 on a disc somewhere if that's needed.
I am using Q2 pro as the client and it is already installed on all of my PCs in the computer lab so if we can stay using that it would be easier for all.
I do not plan on using any modes except for rail and CTF. We never play teams but would like to and I believe that CTF is the best/only way to do this?
I don't need a Windows GUI, as I have the dedicated box and once its set up I won't touch it much. I'm of course willing to learn what ever is needed to set this thing up and make it run.
As I'll have a dedicated PC that I have physical access to, it'll be sitting on a table 20 feet from my desk, I can have a different folder for each Q2 server on that PC. So I was thinking of having a Q2 vanilla server with different maps rotating, and one for rail, and another for CTF. I would only have one going at a time depending upon what we wanted to play. Is this a good idea?I thought that it would get rid of a lot of maintenance as once I have each server set up all that I need to do it start and stop them.

Hello everyone. I use Q2Pro as my client and when I play Q2 with my students at lunch I usually run a server from my PC, select weapons stay, and 20 kills, then everyone joins it. At the end of the map I then go into the console and gamemap name of map and we do it again.
What I am looking for is a premade Q2 server that I can download and then just put my maps into it.
We play rail and normal Q2 so is it possible to play both on the same dedicated server?
I do not want this published on the Internet, I just want me and my students to be able to play at lunch times and after school.
So is there a premade server out there that suits my needs?

Thanks to all who reply.

Yes you are correct that I made a grammar mistake, more of a typo. I do usually proof read my postings but that one I did not. And no I do not teach grammar. :)
I will go to the places that you suggest and see what they have there. Thank you for the lead(s).
If I need more help I may be back to ask more questions.
Thanks to all who helped me out I appreciate it.

railz / Files needed to set up a rail server
« on: November 26, 2014, 08:32:07 AM »
Hello everyone. I am a high school. teacher who teaches video game making using the Unreal Development Kit (UDK). There is a specific criteria that I use in marking the 3D models and game levels that they make. One of the things that I mark on is playability of the level. For example, is there a camping spot? Is one area not balanced? Etc.
In order to know what a good level looks like I have them play Quake 2 with me. I have downloaded many rail, and non rail maps, and we play them and discuss why they are good, why they are not good, and how they can be improved. I wish to run my own internal rail server so that me and my students can also learn the skills of running and configuring a gaming server. So what I am asking is this:
What files do I need to run the rail server?
Where are they located?
And I hope that the instructions are also included.

Thanks to all for reading this and especially to all of those who help.
