Help
ok well i got it working i can join it only if i go to join specific game and click on local network, i dont seen the server name anywhere in the server list, and when i go to join specific game and choose internet and put my server name in i get this error when i try joining

You may not necessarily beable to connection from within the same network as the server is running because some home routers can't cope with what they're supposed to do.

Get a friend to check for you. If they can connect then you have one such router. When the server is on the same LAN you should ideally connect via the LAN address anyway.
lfs lapper problems...
Hi,

I tried downloading 7 zip, and it was successfully installed to my desktop. The only problem is that I can't figure out how to open lfs lapper through 7zip. It is trying to open up through firefox again (like it was before). Again, I tried clicking the list (shown in two posts again), and 7 zip was not on that list. Any other suggestions?

Save the file to your hard drive - some where you'll remember
Goto Start > [All] Programs and file 7-Zip, and open 7-Zip File Manager
Browse to the location of the file
Select the file and click Extract
Extract it somewhere you'll remember

Configure Lapper and the server accordingly.
Thank you so much for responding so quick,

I am almost there! Lapper is opened up through 7-zip. I have thoroughly went through the lfs lapper setup and made important changes. The only problem is I can't start lfs lapper!. When I clicked "WinMSBuildBat", the black screen came up, but it wouldn't start. Instead, it sais "error CS2001: Source File '. /src/*.cs' could not be found fatal error CS2008: No inputs specified" In the "WindowsMonoBuild" icon, it says "mcs is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable command or batch file". I am a computer noob and have no idea on what any of this means, do you have any idea?

You can find the actual bit you need to run in the "bin" directory within the rar file. Just edit the cfg file in there as appropriate
Every time we talk, I get one step closer to getting it!

Now, I filled in all of the information in the "cfg" in the "bin" folder. There is only one problem. Whenever I add new information to the "cfg", it doesn't save. What happens, is a box pops up and says, "File Lfs Lapper cfg was modified. Do you want to update it to the archive? The options are "ok" and "cancel." When I push ok, a new box comes up (red x on the left) and says "cannot update file." That means basically anything I add to the server setup wouldn't be saved.

Any Ideas?

You're editing the files in the rar itself. Edit them outside of the rar (i.e. where you extracted it). Delete the rar once you've extracted the files. It's just designed to be a single container for "shipping".
Success!!!
I got it! Thank you so much for your speedy support. Please come visit [MB] Racing sometime!
Glad to hear it's working [MB] Racing didnt appear to be on the master when I checked though
Hey Angel,

You've helped so many so far! Thanks a heap Now i wonder i you can help me....


I am trying to host a dedicated server on gentoo, 2.6 kernel, wine 0.9.29 (well thats what the recent portage shot says...)

i am running everything default and when i try and run LFS.exe it just dumps and exits. I run netstat to see if the port is open but there is nothing but LFS.exe and wineconsole is in the process list....

I'm just trying to run on the local network so there is no port forwarding problems yet....

This is getting on my nerves

Cheers

What command are you using to start LFS and Wine?
'screen -dmS lfs wineconsole --backend=curses LFS.exe /cfg=setup.cfg'

I've also tried the nohup version and other versions of the command throughout this thread... i re-emerged wine last night and now, if i run just 'wineconsole --backend=curses LFS.exe' It dictates that it is trying to open X and that there is no $DISPLAY set.

The setup.cfg has 'invisible' set instead of 'nogfx'. Everything else is default atm while i try and run the server for the network.

Check that you're using the correct cfg file (i.e. setup.cfg in your instance) and that it's setup how you expect. Wine should only say that if its trying to open a window iirc

Quote from ViKTOOR-LFS :i have sever bt guest can,t joun in

You have a firewall or home router in the way. You need ensure that the ports you set are open - to do this depends on your firewall software and any router you may have.
Interesting... i went back into my setup.cfg and turned on logging to see if i got any type of decent reply from the server when i started it. The first time i tried to restart it i got the the message that initialization of the socket failed. Oh well. I tried for a second time and then... "ITS ALIVE!"

What is the easiest way to script stopping the server (and the screen for that matter)? I'm not logging the PID number...

Cheers

Hi

I just installed WINE and downloaded the dedicated server from the webpage
Im using debian

I opened setup.cfg and set it to /dedicated=invisible
but im still gettin this error:

Warning: Language 'en_DK' was not recognized, defaulting to 'en_US'.
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.

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

Wine exited with a successful status

I got the same problem, also with invisible on and the log on.
But it was shown twice because my /carsguest was to high. When i reduced /carsguest to 2, the error only showed once, so maybe there is was some error in your setup.cfg.

But the server works fine (only tested with one ai and me)

Using debian Etch and wine-0.9.25
I've got a Windows 2003 Server. Is there a way to setup the dedicated LFS server to run as a service so that it still runs when I log out?

Thanks a lot!
You could run it under FireDaemon, but theres no facility built into LFS itself.. unless you want to faff with scripts, etc.
- I can only connect to my server by going to Multiplayer>Join Specific Game>local network, but it wont work on the internet tab selection. it wont show up on the master server . I am sure that the only way guests can connect is to go to join specific game>local network> and type in my ip. Please help

-do i need to have DHCP enabled? do i use the dhcp ip for everything that asks for an ip address? if so, how do i enable it?
Hi all

i'm runing a X Dedicated server on a linux box with
- RedHat 9
- 2.4.20-31.9 kernel
- wine 20030618

Everything seems to work fine ... but ... now i'll want to use LFSLapper and i don't know what to do, because LFSLapper require .net-framework and complain for missing dll. If i just copy this dll in the LFS directory, i have a requester saying "bad install of .net-framework"

Runing a dedi server is fine, but tuning it is better.

Does somebody have any experience ?

PS : xcuse my poor english language
