RE: Question about hosting CDW dedicated servers
I’m no expert, but I was having the same issue. After much trial and error I was able to get a server to run by eliminating this portion of the launch parameters: “@start cdwgame.exe”
My working launch string looks like: “TD-Bamboo_small?steamsockets -dedicated=true -seekfreeloadingserver -configsubdir=CDWMaster -multihome=192.168.X.XX -Port=8777 -QueryPort=8778”
Note this makes use of configsubdir command to allow multiple servers to run on same box, I’v masked the internal IP and I run it on different ports due to existing servers occupying default ports.
RE: Running multiple servers
Are you editing the config located at:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\chivalry_ded_server\UDKGame\Config \PCServer-UDKGame.ini ?
My second server is in a sub-directory - so the config file I’m editing is …\UDKGame\Config\Server\PCServer-UDKGame.ini
And then being launched with the added command line argument -configsubdir=server
ETA: Wow, I’m quite the dummy. It seems I had a typo in the commands I was running, so it was pointing to a non-existent config sub-directory. Thanks to your question I double checked all that and realized the stupid mistake I had made. THANK YOU! Sometimes it just takes a little prompting. :)
Running multiple servers
This may perhaps be a “doh” type question, but I can’t seem to get it sorted out.
I started hosting a server for friends to play on, it and filled up pretty quick with others wanting to join. So I did what any self-respecting fella would do and put up a second server. However, I can’t seem to get the server name to show properly in the in-game server browser. Both servers show the original servers title, and no matter how I change the second server variables, port-forwards, etc., I can not get it to show anything but the original title.
Is this on my end? Anybody have any pointers for me?
