I tried the hlds tool. I did get patched to 1.2, but now I can't get it patched to 1.3
I don't think am using the tool correctly.
It seems there is a problem with the 1.3 patch. No servers display on the list. My server does display when I start it up but it is at 1.2 so I am unable to join because I am at 1.3 on my client. Last night I did somehow get the dedicated patched up but it would not display in the server list so I rolled it back. Is there a way to roll back the client patch? what is the "easiest" method to patch up the dedicated?
I DLed the server files using the HLDS update tool fine. Got the server up and running with the commands found on this forum. The problem I am having is forcing it to update to the new patches. For the 1.3 I copied the files from my PC to the server box in my closet. I worked but it is time-consuming. Now with 1.4 out, I again have client that is ahead of our server. Any help would be greatly appreciated because it looks like this "puppy" is gonna be updated quite a bit until it becomes a full grown hound.
Probably because your total CPU Ghz is above the stupid limit now hardcoded in the EXE.
I have a Dual Xeon 3.06Ghz Server which is more than capable of running MW3 with 18 players slots, this all mess is getting ridiculous to be honest. If no response from them in the next week or so ill drop my dedicated server and that will be all.
I have 2 old single core intel processor boxes one 3.2 ghz and one 2.8 ghz.
Both have 2 gigs ram in them.
With 1.2 I was able to run a server on both of those boxes.
Since 1.3 and 1.4 I can't I get the same message.....Invalid server configuration - insufficient cpu performance 6.0799 ghz for 18 clients. Minimum 9.0000 ghz required..... It doesn't matter how many clients I try and run it with.
I have a spare computer with a dual core 2.6 ghz processor with 3 gigs of ram and it works with 1.3 and 1.4.
Not sure now if it is a ram issue a processor issue or just the game itself.
Its a bogus error to some extend. When we first got the files i would get this every so often... I dont think its all that much relevant or an intentional limit set by IW/SH. Bottom line is, no-one in IW/SH seems to know a thing about Dedicated Server nevermind supporting them.
The game's cooked on PC, stick a fork in it :salute:
