little but helpful improvment
When you start the server following the tutorial, if you add an antislash ('') at the end of the game directory, the server fail to launch with an inappropriate error (could not authenticate.. blabla: 401).
This is very confusing and I had to spend time trying to find whats wrong.
I think its will be a very cheap but helpful improvement to fix that !
I might not be the only one facing this issue and even for you when someone ask for help i may be hard to catch the real problem.
If you are getting a could not authenticate I believe that's due to your key being incorrect. You can try modeling your start.bat after mine, as I have had no issues with mine.
@echo off set game=t6mp :: Replace t6mp with t6zm, or iw5mp if that's what server you are using. set key=xxxxx set GameFolder=C:\T6Server :: This should be your game folder. set cfg=dedicated.cfg set port=4976 .\bin\plutonium-bootstrapper-win32.exe %game% "%GameFolder%" +set key "%key%" +set sv_config "%cfg%" +set net_port "%port%" +start_map_rotate -dedicated
With this specific script, do not add quotes around any of the
setvariables as the quotes are already added in the actual running of the .exe
Sorry Chase, but no, thats the point of my post ;).
My key is 100% correct, problem was the ending anti-slash that I had at the end of my game directory path in the command line :
> bin\plutonium-bootstrapper-win32.exe iw5mp "C:\Games\CODMW3_SERV\Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3\" +set key "MyKey" +start_map_rotate -dedicated
> bin\plutonium-bootstrapper-win32.exe iw5mp "C:\Games\CODMW3_SERV\Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3" +set key "MyKey" +start_map_rotate -dedicated
Hummm.. maybe its because \" make the ending quote to be ignored...
