Can't create server with custom map

Post by applecake » Thu May 21, 2009 5:53 pm

Hey!
When I try to start a server via the BZclient>start server, I doesn't create a server with my custom map, even if I says so.. How come?
The only way I can start a server via the client is to create one with a random map.

The start server menu does not work very well. There was also a limitation with bzfs for CTF maps without all 4 team bases. If you use the short form of the -mp parameter (which that menu does), the server will fail to run a CTF map "missing" bases. This has been fixed in dev code, and will be reflected in the 3.0.0 release. Try adding an options block in your map and provide a valid -mp value.

Is it better to manuall start bzfs then? And what do I write to prevent the server from getting onto the server list, and stay in my local network (for LAN)?
Thanks!

EDIT: I think I've found solutions in the other threads just below. Kinda stupid that I didnt check there.. :oops:

Yes, I start bzfs in command prompt and pass some commands into it. It won't show up on the list server because you haven't given an ip address for the sever to respond to. You can also add
'-advertise none' so it won't listen to it.

As long as you don't add -public, it won't show up on the list list (if you have a router, you'd also have to forward ports before it would show up).
