you see, how helpful it can be to annoy them a bit?
:twisted:

ok, youre one big step further now.

so you also have setup your VM´s ip adress already?
if so, start your engines and get ready for takeoff...

I have set the ip address to 192.168.0.2, which is the same as the address I put in the super hub portforwarding.
The server is not showing up in the server list, do you know why this could be?
I'm assuming its to do with a port error or maybe to do with bridging?
Was there anything else I needed to do alongside the bridging to get it to work?


Edit: I think I've set the Ip as that. Which setting did I need to edit to change the IP?

when starting the server, the final lines, sou see in the terminal window, need to look like this...

connecting to matchmakong server

connected to metchmaking server

stats url for game blah blah

connection to match making server validated, dedicated servercan be used by clients on IP (your OFFICIAL IP here) : (port number you choose here)

serverpropertyreporting listening for client!
using http://87... blah blah


if you see THIS text, your server can register at the eugen server, needed to see your server within the gamebrowser.

what does he tell you after serverstart?

Is there a way to upload images to the forums or would it be easier to just upload them to an image hosting website?

You have to point to a URL (host) as these forums do not host images directly.

ok... hard to read, but lets start...

1.) remove the password from variables.ini
the password is NOT for admin use, but to keep unwanted players out of the server

2.) admin.ini
you do NOT enter the playername here, but the eugen id
you can see this id displayed in the terminal when connecting to the server

3.) worst of all: you are starting the server with the wrong ip!!!

as mentioned in the beginning here, you need to use your OFFICIAL ip adress in the start-command, not the internal IP!!!!

your internal IPs are only seen at your home, not worldwide!!
