Setting up an 8 person BO2 Zombies Lobby

Topic created · 11 Posts · 239 Views
  • Hey there! I just got plutonium and I've been trying to set up an 8-person lobby.
    I have the server up and running, I got a password working, I have tested the starting round for the server, but the one thing I can't do is get my server to host 8 people.

    I tried using the command in dedicated_zm.cfg, which is party_maxplayers. I have also tried using these commands party_maxplayers_leaguematch, party_maxplayers_local_splitscreen, party_maxplayers_partylobby, party_maxplayers_playermatch, party_maxplayers_privatematch, party_maxplayers_systemlink, and sv_maxclients
    but none of those worked for me either. I also tried messing around with IW4MAdmin, but that didn't help either.

    When I access the IW4MAdmin web console I can see that the limit for # of clients is set to 8, but on the client end I only see 4 people are allowed to join even after setting all the commands mentioned above to 8.

    Is there another command I'm missing or is my setup just being weird? If you need more info as to how everything is setup please don't hesitate to ask.

    you have to set

    sv_maxclients
    

    and

    com_maxclients
    
  • Awesome. Apologize for posting in the wrong category. I'll give it a shot though

    That didn't seem to work for me. These are my active settings in the dedicated_zm.cfg

    g_password "*********" //my password for the server
    gts zmDifficulty 1 //difficulty of the game
    gts allowdogs 1 //alllow dog round
    party_maxplayers 8
    party_maxplayers_leaguematch 8
    party_maxplayers_local_splitscreen 8
    party_maxplayers_partylobby 8
    party_maxplayers_playermatch 8
    party_maxplayers_privatematch 8
    party_maxplayers_systemlink 8
    sv_maxclients 8
    com_maxclients 8
    
    sv_maprotation "gametype zstandard loc nuked map zm_nuked" //I understand this sets the current map
    
    //Congratulations. You reached the end of this file. Leave map_rotate down below or else the server will not start after launch...
    map_rotate
    
  • You only have to set sv_maxplayers and wait for the next update.

  • @Xerxes So how do others have 8 player zombie server setup? Do they have access to pre-release/beta files?

  • Nah, they just play around with stuff they don't understand.

  • @Xerxes Sounds good. Do you guys have an ETA on the next update?

  • People who are running an older version of Plutonium for their server are also still able to have 8P matches, as the bug was only introduced in a recent version. I suggest waiting until a fix is pushed

    Its not a bug, they don't know how the game engine handles it, there is a reason their servers freeze often because the game does some retarded shit with the player counts. Release is as soon as all bugs that are found with testing sessions are found and fixed.

  • @Xerxes Sounds good. Thanks for the great responses btw! Hyped for the new update then!!
