Half-Life mod - Day of Defeat Beta 2.1 dedicated server working over WON2 with Sturmbot 1.3.1 and clients
Map bsp dod_caen2 map used from dod 2.1 beta all stock maps work also as tested
IMPORTANT NOTES FOR BOTH SERVERS AND CLIENTS "WHEN JOINING A GAME FROM LAN OR IP ADRESS OR BROWESER DO NOT DOUBLE CLICK GAME TO JOIN USE JOIN INSTEAD OR THIS WILL CRASH THE GAME"
Enable Enhanced Graphics Engine
Enable transparency fix
to fix d3d or open gl problems if needed
these can be found in start menu Half-Life 18.104.22.168 Retail Update options
If the video seems a little choppy bear in mind this was a "basic test server" using on board graphics with fraps in background with two clients one joining from the same machine
This is how it works you must use these specific files to work over WON2 network
Half-Life retail cd with key
hl1110 full patch
You must then patch too Half-Life 22.214.171.124 Retail Update
WON2 Listing Patch (Half-Life and Counter-Strike Retail Clients; all HLDS versions)
Day of Defeat Beta 2.0 and 2.1 upgrade
For a dedicated windows server you must use these specific files too work over the WON2 network
Shortcut must look someting like this for a dedicated server too work
C:\HLServer\hlds.exe -game DoD -port 27015 +maxplayers 32 +map dod_avalanche +sv_lan 1 sturmbot/dlls/STURM_bot.dll
You must allways use sv_lan 1 to connect to master won2 servers or it won't work
You must forward port 27015 for HLDS too work
Half-Life Dedicated Server 126.96.36.199
Don't try any higher series dedicated of servers we tested they crash and do not work
You must install dod into HLServer server folder
Use only Sturmbot version 1.3.1 for (dod 2.1 Beta)
If you have problems use Sturmbot 1.3 lesser version for (dod 2.1 Beta) works also
Don't try any higher series of Sturmbot for Day of Defeat Beta 2.1 Sturmbot version 1.3/1.3.1 are specific only for Day of Defeat Beta 2.1
You must now patch swd.dll or it won't work
WON2 Patch for Windows Servers (HLDS 188.8.131.52/184.108.40.206)
Also Sturmbotloader 1.2 for seems too work with Day of Defeat Beta 2.1 but may be buggy?
liblist should look like this:
// Sturmbot add-on for Day of Defeat Mod
game "Day of Defeat with Sturmbot 1.31"
liblist21 should look like this:
// SturmBot add-on for Day of Defeat Mod
game "Day of Defeat"
With that setup a dedicated windows server will work with clients and bots over the WON2 network
we tested all stock maps/weapons/tnt objects document objects/fixed guns/tanks/flags/para mode other game objectives no crashes so far
AMX mod/Meta mod/Admin mod all untested so far
Host won't see the server in the browser list you must use the lan option to join
The server must give ip adress and clients join by add server ip or use the browser
Now you can try this over Steam good luck with the screaming fits because every time the steam client/half-life updates it breaks something new every time.
