Any pre made server packages out there?
« on: September 16, 2016, 12:27:22 PM »
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.

hey man this is awesome i saw you post something kinda like this a while ago ive since learned to setup a TMG Railwarz instaGib CTF server that can easily be changed into and FFA Railwarz instaGib server, it can be all weapons too!

so i can make a few different server configs that will let you switch between gametype with an easy console command like


rcon_password "CHANGEME"
i just bind this command to a key so i dont have to always type password
then in console type one of the following commands

rcon exec railz.cfg                                    for FFA instaGib railz +hook
rcon exec dm.cfg                                      for FFA all weapons
rcon exec rwzctf.cfg                                 for Railwarz instaGib CTF +hook

the hook can be turned off or just don't teach them how to bind it... but the hook is what makes instagib so fun to me to each their own :)

ill put all this together with a handful of the most popular CTF maps and a few great arena maps im sure you have most of those picked out already tho!

i assume you are using a Windows PC for you server?

ill post a link when i get it all sorted out so you can just unzip the file and click on the r1q2ded.bat or q2proded.bat

r1q2 server or q2pro server  most people use r1q2 i think but it really shouldnt matter isolated in a classroom

here is a video of Railwarz instaGib CTF  with the lazer hook

Well, if you have the original game (3.20 or 3.21) and not a demo copy installed you pretty much have a "server" installed. Putting r1q2 into it as r1q2.exe or dedicated.exe (on Windows) is fairly painless. The r1q2 "client" can be run in dedicated mode by using +set dedicated 1 in the command line and that's easily done from a shortcut for launching from the GUI.

The problem with a packaged server is that there are so many different mods you pretty much have to have a preference for a mod and then ask the enthusiasts of that mod for a package. (beaver is working on one as you see)

Different mods also have differing setups and configurations and some of them can be a bit tricky for a novice server admin. I can remember those days... it takes a lot of time and energy to be a server admin.

If you want to choose your mod, Tastyspleen is the starting point with the most extensive archive of the mods and supporting files to be found on the net and many of them have installers or packaged zips that can get you started as a client and as a server of the mod.

I get the impression that he's looking for a Windows GUI where he can drag and drop maps into a rotating list, choose a mod from a dropdown, etc. As far as I know, nothing like that exists from the last decade or so. You might be able to find a very, very old Q2 server frontend. But in general, if you want to run a server with a handful of custom maps and a couple of mods, it's really not difficult to do this "manually" as Qwazy describes.

the only thing I remember having an actual windows frontend for loading the server up, was the OSP tourney mod. dunno if it will work on a x64 os, since I haven't tried it in a while.

It would work for some simple team or ffa games. editing a couple text files for the maplist and server settings was pretty straightforward.

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.

http://mbrwz.dieslow.net/computerclass.zip

edit the server.cfgs with notepad at the very least change the 127.0.0.1 ip to whatever the ip is of the server you are running.

this zip has everything you need run an FFA DM , FFA Railz, Railwarz CTF or All Weapons CTF modes

FFA Railz should be the default game type that loads.

rcon_password is set to "CHANGEME" right now

so after clicking on the rwz.bat to launch the server

and connecting to the server from a quake2 client. q2pro will be fine.  type in the console

rcon_password CHANGEME

or whatever you changed it to.

then type in console

rcon exec ffa.cfg 

 or which ever game type you want to load and the server will restart in the mode. i added a readme for an explanation of the premade server.cfgs i made you can rename them to whatever you want.

there are two map lists located in ctf/cfg/  called maps_ctf.txt and maps_dm.txt  you can edit the map list there if you like

or just use rcon command to change map manually

if you want to add more maps both CTF maps and DM FFA arena type maps will go into /ctf/maps/  folder

rcon gamemap mapname
rcon gamemap lfctf9


hope it all works out for you let me know if you have any questions!

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

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.

set ctf 0 will make it Free for all or DM mode.
set ctf 1 will make it capture the flag mode.
set railserver 1 will make it rail only
set railserver 0 will make it all weapons.
so you have 4 combinations there. FFA all weapons. FFA rail only. CTF rail only. CTF all weapons.

you can change frag limit time limit etc here
put 10 for timelimit or whatever you want to make it there and 20 for the frag limit

the railwarz .cfg  located in ctf folder can be edited with notepad
you can rename railwarz.cfg to whatever you like just make sure the .cfg name matches in the rwz.bat file

Map rotation/map vote list

theres  only two map rotation files.. one for CTF and one for Free for all or non CTF.
they are both located in /ctf/cfg/

so if set ctf = 1 then your maps_ctf.txt will be used.
if set ctf = 0 then maps_dm.txt will be used.

you could make more than 2 rotation files just need to edit the name when you are ready to use it.  or like you said just have two copies of the server one for just railz and the other for all weapons youd have 2 rotation files for each server. one CTF one dm

in the rotation file the mape filename comes first

mapfilename   "in quotes you can write anything here or the name of the map"

to make the weapons stay i think you have to edit the dm flags number. http://www.wiseup.org/tools/flagulator/ this tool can be helpful.


ive never really messed with them much so i dont know offhand from experience how it works but i can test it out n get back to you with the right number.

you want limited ammo. health. items and armor. but you want the weapons to stay so anyone can pick them up right?

or by weapons stay did you mean you wanted everyone to spawn with alll weapons and unlimited ammo?
