I have a background in hosting private servers, and have some knowledge.
However, this COD4x server has been making me feel like a fool.
I have an online community, with a fair few gamers and we’re trying to setup a private COD4 server for us to jam on.
I’ve got the server setup, and it’s responding to ping. Client will connect to it, however it tells me the update backend is not available. I installed the update manually as instructed, but there is no change. It still sticks on awaiting challenge, then tells me I need to manually update.
Is someone able to run me through the steps for installing this update manually? Or how to load up cod4x client?
Perhaps some common problems and their solutions?
I’ve spent some time searching this forum and the rest of the interwebs but I have not found anything that’s helped so far.
I’ve not dealt with COD4x hosting before, please be forgiving
I am not using the masterservers as i don’t want it publicly listed. Is this a problem?
Trying to figure it out now… any help appretiated.
MAD_LAD said “It is a check that is now inbuilt within cod4x. That picks these files up that it thinks should not be there. The only way to stop it is for servers to set sv_pure to 0 or not to use those files.”
I did this, and it stopped the problem.
My final question after all this is, is there any security risk to my server in doing this?
