Press "Print screen" on your keyboard, launch any graphical editor you have (Paint, Photoshop...), Edit => Paste, Ctrl + S, then upload file to this thread using a "Upload a File" button.

Or read this:

And please stop posting so many replies in row, use "Edit" button to edit your posts. You can be punished by forum admins for flooding.

what about the thing I just said?|
I uploaded file as atachment to this message.
After you download it, you need change its extension to .bat, since forum doesn't allow uploading files with extension ".bat".

oh no, I cant do it, my f keys are binded to windows 10 oh yeah I can do rename srry xD wait. so it needs to be server.bat.bat

Linux guide coming out soon.

Requirements:

Folder structure:
  • /GameData
    • /base
      • assets files
    • /MBII
      • Movie Battles II mod files
    • jampDED.exe


Configure server.cfg file
Server.cfg is configuration file for your server. It contains the more important information about your server like maximum players, name of your server etc.

Let's take a close look:
Code:
// Movie Battles II
// Sample Server Config
// Server Config:
seta sv_hostname "" // Name of your server
seta g_motd "Welcome to my MB2 Server\nHave fun!" // Message of the Day
// Additional master servers to report to
seta sv_master1 "master.moviebattles.org" // Master servers - do not alter unless you know what you are doing.
seta sv_master2 "masterjk3.ravensoft.com"
seta sv_master3 "master.jkhub.org"
seta sv_master4 ""
seta sv_master5 ""
// Administration:
seta rconpassword "" // Rcon admin password - CHANGE THIS
// See MBII_Readme (GameData folder) for info on bitvalues!
// If g_smodconfig_1 is set to 0, smod system is disabled.
// Accounts without password are disabled aswell.
seta g_smodAdminPassword_1 "" // Smod admin password - CHANGE THIS
seta g_smodConfig_1 "8191"                                 // All commands enabled
seta g_smodAdminPassword_2 ""
seta g_smodConfig_2 "7"                                 // Kick, nextmap, map.
seta g_smodAdminPassword_3 ""
seta g_smodConfig_3 "0"
seta g_smodAdminPassword_4 ""
seta g_smodConfig_4 "0"
seta g_smodAdminPassword_5 ""
seta g_smodConfig_5 "0"

seta g_logSync "0"                    // Use synchronous appending in log writes. (May impact server performance if set to 1(Not generally recommended), but may provide more detailed logs if a crash occurs.)
// Server Settings:
seta sv_fps "40"                    // Server FPS setting.
seta sv_maxclients "32"                // Number of your server's player slots
seta sv_privateClients ""            // Number of private slots

set d4 "map mb2_republiccruiser;set nextmap vstr d5"
set d5 "map mb2_jabba;set nextmap vstr d6"
set d6 "map mb2_jeditemple;set nextmap vstr d7"
set d7 "map mb2_tatooine;set nextmap vstr d8"
set d8 "map mb2_kamino;set nextmap vstr d1"
vstr d1   // Start the first map in the rotation

What should we change first is:
Code:
seta sv_hostname "" // Name of your server
seta rconpassword "" // Rcon admin password - CHANGE THIS

The rest is optional, every option is commented



Now let's create .bat file so we can start our server.

Open notepad.exe and paste code:
Code:
jampDed.exe +set fs_game "MBII" +set net_port 29070 +exec server.cfg

Save as: "server.bat" in GameData folder.

Run server by double-clicking server.bat.


Connection FAQ
1. I can join server but my friends can't. Why?
Make sure you gave your friends public IP Address, and forwarded 29070 port on your router.

2. What is my public IP Address?
Here: What is my IP? - WhatIsMyIP.org

3. What is port forwarding and why do i need it?
This will be edited today :) Paint is killing me.


To be added:
smod commands,
rcon commands
how to setup rtv,
anything else?
I tried it, buuuuuuuuut it didn't work, I tested with a friend

I don't even understand what are you talking about.
Just start the server, press Print Screen, paste to some image editor, save, upload to the forum.
That's how it should looks like:

show the screen shots with print screen sysRq

Code:
smod say trolololo
Before that you must login:
Code:
smod login 1 password
where 'password' is that set in server's config:
Code:
seta g_smodAdminPassword_1 "" // Smod admin password - CHANGE THIS
uhhm i write that smod login 1 password in sta g_smodAdminPassword_1"" what should i do now?

You need to open your config and change a password, something like this:
Code:
seta g_smodAdminPassword_1 "wanderlust" // Smod admin password - CHANGE THIS
Then start server, start game, join the server, open console, type:
Code:
smod login 1 wanderlust
smod say I want to see where the sirens sing

Still can't understand you.
Please read guide once again.
Describe in detail what steps did you take, what output did you get, what problem do you have. Provide screenshots.
