Thread: Multiplayer Server

  1. #1

    Multiplayer Server

    From the server exe is it possible to change the server name from default i.e Andy-pc. As when i start the game and go to multiplayer i see my server called Andy pc and cant seem to change it.

    You are going to need a server.cfg file. Here is an example of an Arma2OA config, which is essentially the same.

    You will then need to launch the server with the following switch

    Code:
    "-config=i:\games\take on helicopters\server.cfg"
    Obviously change the path to wherever you put the server.cfg file. In the server.cfg file there is an entry;

    Code:
    hostname = "my server name"
    That is the name of your server.

    Hope this gets you started.

    Thanks for a quick response, where do i put the server cfg file ? and seems like i will have to change alot of entries in the arma cfg file to make it work for TOH. Kinda new to all this just trying to get a uk server up and running using the server .exe instead of doing it in game.

    It doesn't matter where you put it as long as you refer to the correct path in the launch path.

    So, if you put it in;

    Code:
    c:\myConfigs\server.cfg
    Make sure you launch it with

    Code:
    "-config=c:\myConfigs\server.cfg"
    Perceived wisdom is that you don't keep it in your ToH directory as some hacks (for Arma2 anyway) can find it there.

    EDIT --->

    There's not much you have to change actually. Here's one that works in its basic form....

    if the server.cfg is in your root folder, just put this in your shortcut target line.
    Code:
    -config=server.cfg
    I dont think hacks are a problem with this game, that caution is unnecessary.

    Something like this;

    Code:
    "I:\Games\Take On Helicopters\takeonhserver.exe" "-config=i:\games\take on helicopters\server.cfg"

    // server.cfg = "-config=c:\myConfigs\server.cfg"
    this line is unnecessary, and dont post your admin password
