Something is wrong with bzfs conf file

Post by Army of One » Wed Feb 12, 2014 7:26 am

My server was running-however i changed maxidle and a couple of other setting in config file now all i am getting is bad argument errors. It tells me a number which happens to be what i changed. Now i can't even change the shot number without it telling me it a bad argument. I even tried the bzfs html file maker with same results. does anyone know what is going on and why this is happening. I will post both config files minus inportant info mainly pub key and password. If I coment all the bad arguments out nothing then loads- at a major loss here.

Thanks in advanced

Word of advice about "+f good{45} +f bad{25}"... that does not add 45 good flags and 25 bad flags, it adds 45 of EVERY good flag and 25 of EVERY bad flag.. you're going to have hundreds of flags on the field and probably cause issues joining/playing due to the large amount of data sent for flag updates.

Anyways, assuming that 'bzfs.conf' is the one with issues, it's probably due to you forgetting a number here:

Code: Select all

# Define a threshold over which players with high lag will be announced.

-lagannounce
I would recommend that you not use the same configuration nor the configuration generator. Read the bzfs documentation and the 'bzfs -help' output and build your own config by hand, one line at a time. And test it often so you know what change broke something.
