Title: Finally.
Post by: frymaster on October 10, 2009, 03:26:53 AM
Worked out why the private L4D servers weren't working properly.  There are now 3 private left4dead servers running (as well as 9 public ones as advertising) - only people in the nervousENERGY steam group should be able to start a lobby on them.  Once the game starts, as usual, anyone at all can join, but there's not much I can do about that :(

If we need more, I can adjust the mix of private to public, but that involves waiting until they are all empty, so it can take 2 hours or more to do.

If people want custom campaigns uploaded, poke me / ryan / fruitbat / lifeless

also, for what it's worth, this is the motd and banner:

http://games.127001.org/l4d/motd.php

...quickly adapted from what we had for 127001.org
If someone wants to suggest a better motd, feel free :)

How do you start a lobby in a certain server then?

i think you start a lobby as normal and the lobby leader needs to enter

mm_dedicated_force_servers *server IP*  into console before starting the search

this should force the matchmaking system to only search for a specific server or list of servers.

Ping on those servers is a bit high for me.  Being as you can guarantee yourself a lower pinging multiplay server using the command line the ne servers seem a bit unnecessary.

Perhaps useful in the first couple of months of L4D 2.

Strange that ping is higher than multiplay, are the servers on the 127 boxes or one of the 2 dedi boxes?

127 box.  ping _will_ be higher than london based server cause the vast majority of ISP route to amsterdam via london but it should make sod all difference....unless of course your ISP has shit routing to netherlands?
