PowerServer & OFPMonitor: Multiplayer without Gamespy

Recommended Posts

Why don't you try hosting on a different computer and different internet connection to isolate the problem

I hope this is only temporary. 😱

 

OFP Monitor is what kept MP play going for so long.

 

Maybe Rozek can help with a new Master Server?

I see that master.ofpisnotdead.com is responding, so probably crisis averted.

However, in case of emergency @mcslavko of [PR] Polish Resistance, had set up a second Master Server at 185.102.190.8

It is hosted on the same server as PR game server, so it should run 24/7.

 

If you're a game server admin and want your server to report to [PR] Master Server, change following value in your server.cfg

reportingIP="185.102.190.8";

If you're player and want to see servers reporting to [PR] Master Server, open OFP Monitor settings dialog, go to Master servers tab, and click "Add new server domain" (top button). Type 185.102.190.8 and click "OK". After closing settings window press [F5] on keyboard - after few seconds you should see servers reporting to [PR] Master Server, and any other Master Server you have in OFP Monitor list.

 

@poweruser if you see this, you can update your master server list on GitHub.

Server crashed and did not restarted. Feel free to ping me directly when it happens again. I got email from LP to inform me about the problem.

ℹ️PowerServer 1.3.0 was released at https://github.com/simi/PowerServer/releases/tag/1.3.0.

 

- now it can dump all active servers to text file

- for master.ofpisnotdead.com, this file is exposed at https://master.ofpisnotdead.com/servers.txt and updated each 5 minutes

- that means no more GameSpy protocol to get serverlist

 

I'll work on more enhancements soon. Stay tuned!

Hi, I recently created a server based on: ColdWarAssault_Server.exe the config file is set up correctly as it seems to me. TCP / UDP ports open: 2302 - 2306 I raised the server for Arma 2, everything worked for me and the players saw my server, but the time came and I decided to move to Arma: Cold War Assault. Can you please give concise instructions on how to add my server to the OFP Monitor list. Or you need to use a different kernel to create the server beside: ColdWarAssault_Server.exe
P.S sorry for my eglish. There is so much discussion on the forum that I didn't understand much.

@HCoder as mentioned in first post of this thread, you need to add

reportingIP="master.ofpisnotdead.com";

to your server config file (that one where you put server name, password, ...).

 

If you'll have problems, feel free to join https://discord.gg/agh3nnce, I'm in there with another OFP players and we can help you in there.
