No Limit is on a distinguished road
couldn't load fileSysCheck.cfg when starting server

I have a remoted windows 2003 server that I host TF2, CS, and Dod servers on. I would like to start a cod 4 dedicated server so I followed the guide at the top of this page. However, when I start the server using the following:



I get the following error:

Quote:
Error during initialization:
Couldn't load fileSysCheck.cfg. Make sure Call of Duty is run from the correct folder.
I have the entire installation at the exact same path as on my local machine. I also have the directx dll in my system32 folder.

I uploaded my entire 1.5 installation. I'm not sure if patching the game locally to 1.5 and then uploading is part of the problem. Was I supposed to upload the raw unpatched installation and then patch it on the server? Any help would be appreciated.

I did try a toned down version of this file and that also didn't work.

Here is my start up command:

"C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 4 - Modern Warfare\iw3mp.exe" +set dedicated 2 +set sv_punkbuster 1 +exec mp-server.cfg +map_rotate

Actually I went through all the files and it looks like some of them didn't upload properly. I am reuploading them now and will see what happens. I'll post back with the results.

theMechanic has a spectacular aura abouttheMechanic has a spectacular aura about
your using a ton of cvars that only work in unranked mode, and that cfg isn't setup right.

you need a better set of server cfg's for one, try the ones here:
http://www.clanmech.com/guides/cod4/index.html

you only need the stock server.cfg or RANKED cfg in that guide.

You also need to change your command line and add
+set net_ip
+set net_port
+set sv_maxclients

Thanks, I appreciate your help. I will make this changes, however, for anyone reading this in the future the issue was some of the files not being uploaded completely. After I reuploaded them everything worked like a charm.
