Fix for servers not showing in browser (FOR SERVER ADMINS)

Postby RYell » Fri Jul 20, 2012 9:19 am

NMRIH guys found a solution, however it's up to server admins, please read:

Connect to your server via FTP or SSH.
Open your 'server.cfg' with a text editor (you'll find it in "fistful_of_frags/cfg/").
Paste the following at the END of it:

Code: Select all
    //**********************************************************************************************************
    // Master Server Settings
    //**********************************************************************************************************
    sv_master_legacy_mode 0                         // Disable lagacy mode, since steam master servers won't support it anymore.
    heartbeat                               // Send heartbeat that this server is ready. Should be the last line of the config.
    //**********************************************************************************************************
 


Save the file and if necessary put it back on your server.
Restart your server OR type "exec server.cfg" (without "") into your server console (HLSW, rcon or sm_rcon works as well).

There's an additional issue that may only affect this mod, since most mods don't use bots.

Once this solution has been applied and server shows in server browser, any bot that joins the game will be added to master server (as any other player). However it won't be removed from the queue so the server eventually will be full of non existent bots. Just master server doesn't receive or understand the message that game server sends when a bot leaves. Hope Valve can fix in some way, until then...

Solutions:

1. disabled bots (fof_sv_botsallowed 0)
2. players may connect fine to any server using 'connect' command + IP:PORT
