IW4M Dedicated Server Guide

[heading]Main configuration[/heading]
[list]
  • [*]Download [url=http://content.getrektby.us/LaunchIW4M.exe]LaunchIW4M[/url] and place it on the main root.

  • [*]Save the [url=http://getrektby.us/dl/iw4.server.cfg]configuration[/url] to your /main/ folder and name it [b]server.cfg[/b]

  • [*]Create a shortcut of LaunchIW4M and right click the shortcut, select properties and paste this following text at the end of the "target" line
    [code]
    -dedicated -console +set net_port 28960 +exec server.cfg +map_rotate
    [/code]

    If on linux, skip the -console parameter.

    if you have issues with lag on b3. skip the -console parameter.


  • [*]Execute the shortcut and you're good to go!
  • [/list]


    [heading]Port forwarding[/heading]
    Forward port 28960 (default) on both UDP and TCP to avoid any inconvenience ([url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hv4g37-5zVU]Port Forwarding Tutorial[/url])


    [heading]Common issues[/heading]
    [u]Can't connect to your own server? Can't see it in the browser list?[/u]

    - To connect you will need to goto console and type ''connect <your local ip:port>" then hit enter.

    - To find your local IP: [i]Open up Command Prompt by typing 'cmd' (without the apostrophe's (the '')) in either your Start Menu for people on Windows 7 or above, or by hitting your Windows and R key at the same time.[/i]

    - Type in: 'ipconfig'. [url=http://qs.lc/demynnfire/vog.png]Example[/url]

    Find your computer/router/wireless adapter. Copy down the IP address for that, and that will be your local IP.

    An example would be "connect 192.168.2.114:28960"

    Put the mod in MW2's "mods" directory (create if non-existent), in the server start-up parameters add "+set fs_game mods/modname" (replacing modname with the directory name of the mod)

    avail,



    max@srv1:~/servers/mw2$ wine LaunchIW4M.exe -dedicated

    Application tried to create a window, but no driver could be loaded.

    Make sure that your X server is running and that $DISPLAY is set correctly.

    err:systray:initialize_systray Could not create tray window

    fixme:advapi:EventRegister {5eec90ab-c022-44b2-a5dd-fd716a222a15}, 0x71a0123, 0x7067170, 0x7067188
