For the past week I've been trying to get a CB server up & running at You are not allowed to view links.
(who I have to say have been most helpful) but I've had no joy with it. I can see it in the server browser, it shows as having no password and as not running PunkBuster but the moment I try and join it I get...
...with no indication in the log file at either end what the issue might be. The server.log shows no sign I've even tried to connect and the end of the local game.log just looks like...

I can connect fine to this server when it's running plain Crysis Wars. I've had GameServers generate MD5 checksums for all the files in the Mods\CasusBelli\ mod folder tree and confirmed that these are identical to my own (which is where the mod files were uploaded from). My install connects just fine to the official servers. We've tried a number of command lines, most recently...
"C:\Games\8_3_28_56\596447\Warhead\Bin32\CrysisWarsDedicatedServer.exe" -mod casusbelli -root "C:\Games\8_3_28_56\596447\Warhead\Mods\CasusBelli\Configs" +sv_maxplayers 24 +sv_bind 184.108.40.206 +exec server.cfg
...the equivalent of which works when I run a dedicated server here on my PC. The server.cfg looks like...
r_ShadersAsyncCompiling = 1
r_driver = "DX9"
net_enable_voice_chat = 0
sv_servername = "ANZINS.NET Casus Belli"
sv_ranked = 0
sv_lanonly = 0
sv_cheatprotection = 0
sv_voice_enable_groups = 0
ban_timeout = 600
log_verbosity = 1
log_fileverbosity = 1
g_useProfile = 1
g_teamlock = 0
g_timelimit = 45
g_minteamlimit = 0
g_minplayerlimit = 0
g_revivetime = 15
g_autoteambalance = 0
g_tk_punish = 1
g_tk_punish_limit = 5
And the VC++ 2010 SP1 package is installed on client and server.
I have run out of things to try and am about to give up. Anyone? If anybody tries to connect to it (ANZINS.NET Casus Belli
) and gets a different result please post here and let me know.
