Obtaining a key

Post by SubinSiby » Sat Oct 14, 2017 5:57 pm

Hi !
I would like to obtain a key to list my server. My server is hosted in Kerala, India so that people of my country will be able to play with less lag. Internet connections in India are poor and playing on the current listed servers gets us kicked off because of lag. So I made this server and we host games every weekend.

I saw that the page http://my.bzflag.org/listkeys/ is being worked on. Is there anyway to get a key ?

Thanks!

Hi SubinSiby,

It depends on the server you are going to create.
Some servers will use default configurations and a /password, while others will rely on plug-ins and global groups.

If you choose to run a public server, at very least I'd suggest loading the 'SuperUser' plug-in.

Global groups tend to be a much better option though, but you will need to request for them in the Request Global Permission Groups here thread.

If you need help with specifics of running a server or advice, feel free to start another topic or to private message me.

Mathis,
Talk to Bertman on bz or send him forum pm. He has set up his servers several months ago and they run well.

By the way, which operating system are you using Mathiaz?

If you are using Windows, there is some scripts I could provide which I've made over time.
Example:

Code: Select all

@ECHO OFF
ECHO Finding BZFlag
cd C:\Program Files\[BZFlag version]
@ECHO OFF
ECHO If everything works properly we'll likely see BZFS give a message
bzfs.exe -world "C:\Users\[username]\Desktop\MyMap.bzw"
PAUSE
Note: The script above is used on Windows and is written in the Batch scripting language.
Only differences from the one I use is that '[username]' and '[BZFlag version]' contain my username and BZFlag version.
The map name also tends to vary too. :wink:

My experience is less in Linux though, but it mostly involves the way a path to file is done.

Running a server doesn't have to be difficult, there is a few tricks and tips to it.
Usually most of the things you need to know are in the configurations of a server.
From random BZFS generated maps, to using custom worlds and map files, it mostly involves the configurations and settings of the files.
I also create custom configurations on request as well.

This thread is quickly veering off topic. The topic was about obtaining a public hosting key, not tips for hosting a server. If they have questions about that, they can ask in a new thread.
