Error with save world.

Post by Iskskskks » Sat May 19, 2012 10:58 pm

Hi bzflagers,

I had Problem with the command /saveworld o . I saved the world went to start server. Than I went to Map I put the map in all the right stats. Next I tried to join, but it said "error connecting to server". I went to random map and it worked just fine.Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
Thanks

Run bzfs manually from the command line so you get error output.

bzfs is the server application. If you are using the "Start Server" option from in the game, it launches bzfs in the background to run a map. However, you don't get any output when you do it this way, so you don't see when the server fails to launch for whatever reason. So, run bzfs yourself. There is LOTS of posts here about how to run a server, and we include documentation with the game (on Windows and Linux, at least), help text via 'bzfs -help', and a wiki.

Exactly, do not use the in-game "start server" menu.
