Title: Counter Strike (WXP)
Post by: $ilent Troopa on September 18, 2001, 12:59:04 AM
Hi, WXP if you are reading this it is meant for you as I saw that you had posted a message saying that you had setup counter strike on an e-smith server. I would be interested in finding out more info on this.

What was the e-smith specs? and where can I find info on setting up Counter Strike server on e-smith?

Look forward to hearing back from you.

Hey dude !

That's true.. I just set up a Counter Strike server. In fact, I set up many Counter Strike servers on different ports.
I will make an HowTo on how to install Counter Strike, PunkBuster and Admin Mod.

But you'll have to wait sorry... It is not finished at the moment.
I still have some problem and have to try if the "daemon"  I created work fine.

Let's say 2 - 3 weeks.

Just give me your email adresse I'll send you the howto...


ps: Sorry but I'm very busy.... 2 - 3 weeks is a minimum....

ok no problem.

Did you install Punkbuster as well ?

I'm having trouble to launch it in a "screen" (with the screen command)

Thanx

not yet, but i will in a few weeks

so i'll let you know if it works and how :-)

and actually , i'm not using screen at all

here's how i start my server

Quote
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/e-smith/files/users/hallife/home/hlds_l:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

./hlds_run -game cstrike -heapsize 100000 +exec server.cfg -maxplayers 8 +map cs_italy &

so instead of using the screen command i appended an & at the end.
hope it helps for you

Daniel

oh .. forgot to mention , when using the & you can't get back into the server console like you can with screen, so be sure to set up some sort of rcon or admin_mod stuff.

don't know if this might be a problem for the punkbuster

punkbuster dont car of that. you just have to tell him the ip and port you want it to control. and you have to tell him the rcon password as well..

I use screen to go back in the console of hlds_l
I dont really need it in fact.. I will think about what you told me...
I activated the logs so I can see where the problem is If a server stop responding...

ok i'll try that as soon as possible !!

ok thanx...

I made so many things to make cstrike, pb and admin work (with mysql) that i think i can go through any trouble now :)
they can come i'm not afraid :))

Post by: Daniel Kraaij on September 18, 2001, 06:40:17 PM
heheh . cool..

but you do the admin stuff through mysql .. nice ..

haven't tried that yet ..  :-)
what's the main advantage of this?
Title: Re: Counter Strike (WXP)
Post by: WXP on September 18, 2001, 08:48:29 PM
the main advantage is that it is fast (ok ok it doesnt change anything lol)

I think it is easier to modify than files... and and and....

mysql is there so why should i use files ?! lol

Good to see there are many heads with the same idea....I hope to setup the e-smith server within the next couple of weeks and as it is the first time using linux I will be posting quite a bit I guess :o)

WXP I would be gratefull if you could either email me or post your info on setting up a CS server on e-smith. The more details the better and the more basic the better (for me and others) If you give me all the details I'll post it on a web site and then post the link in here (if that's cool with you)

What are the spec's of your e-smith server that is running CS?

A lot of the post's on this subject don't make a lot of sense at the mo but I guess all will become aparent as i get to grips with e-smith.

If you want to email me you can send it to pete_g_99@hotmail.com

Look forward to it....

OK I started to make the Howto since the new version of cs it out.

I need someone to :

 - Correct my english in the howto because I'm swiss so I may do some mistakes
 - Test it....

I'm doing it and at the same time, I test on my server what i'm writting..
So it should be ok..

If someone could leave an email on pbrossin@wxp.homeip.net I would be happy.

ps: Your name will ber in the "Thanx" part of my howto .. Oh god I'll have to make a big one ;-)
