[HOWTO] Call of Duty 2 Linux Dedicated Server

Hello,

I've written a HOWTO that covers the installation of a Call of Duty 2 dedicated server on Linux.

This guide is intended for Call of Duty 2 server admins that have never installed a Call of Duty 2 server before or have not so much experience in doing so. It can also be used by more experienced Call of Duty 2 server admins that need a reference while installing their server.

You may survive this guide without having any basic knowledge about Linux. However, a basic knowledge about Linux may be required.

I would really appreciate it if you have used the guide, and it was usefull for you, that you report a successfull installation by posting in this thread.

Please post feedback regarding the guide in this thread. If there's a mistake in the guide, please report it here so I can correct it.

Click here to read the guide

Have a nice day,
Robert

Howdy. What's better, dev/null the back of that command or nohup-ing the front of it?

Thanks, it is well written, btw!

game_mp.log

I have noticed that since I upgraded my linux server to the 1.2 patch my games_mp.log file only works for 1 map and then just quits after that. If I restart the server it will work again for 1 map and quit again.
Anyone else having this problem?

set logfile "1"
set g_log "games_mp.log"
set g_logsync "1"
set sv_log_damage "0"

The above settings are what I use, any help would be great!

Hi,

Very nice tutorial. Now I have a question for you.

I start my server like this:
./cod2_lnxded +set net_ip xx.xx.xx.xx +set ctf 2 +exec ctf.cfg >/dev/null 2>&1 &

But now I cannot load a map in order to connect with Rcon. Rcon says connected. But there is no way to start a map.

Can you add the map to the startup command?

I'm not sure what you mean, but if you would have the startup command like this:

./cod2_lnxded +set net_ip xx.xx.xx.xx +set dedicated 2 +exec ctf.cfg +map_rotate >/dev/null 2>&1 &

it will start the first map from your map rotation automatically. Note that I removed the '+set ctf 2', that doesn't do anything afaik.

I hope this answers your question.

--Robert

Thank you very much.

I have not read that +maprotate anywhere.

That did the trick. Now, how do I stop the server? Must be a command for that too.

later Version of Linux patch ?

Hi Robert,

Will later versions of the Linux server (1.5 ?) work with your instructions - or do I need to stick with the version that's available on your web site ?

Thanks for a nicely written guide.

Rich

Hi Nick'sDad,

I never had a chance to update it, but you can just download the 1.3 files and install them. Besides the fact that the files are different, the installation process is the same.

Robert

Hi Robert,

Success - the 1.3 image works fine. Nick tells me that PB is out of date - any idea how I go about updating it to the latest version ? Otherwise everyone's happy !!
Thanks
Rich.

As far as I know it should update autmatically after you've once connected with an updated client. This should make the server perform a web-update (see the messages in the console when it's downloading the .htm files).

Alternatively, you can look for the pb update tool on evenbalance.com

sorry - I should RTFM..... As you said it's updated automatically - and the Punkbuster site explains it all anyway.
So we're all done - it seems to easily support 8-10 players over our home cable connection and the impact that the cod2_lnxded process has on our server is minimal.
I appreciate your help.
Rich
