fatal error maprot unavailable HELP!
#1
I want to set up a server on my home pc so i can connect to it on the school pcs, but i get this error when turning on the ac_server.exe file in win_32
I haven't edited anything in servercmdline.txt so i dont know whats wrong, do i have to add the path to it if so how?

I am a complete noob so the server documentation just left me confused :)

Thanks for any help!

This is what you get?
Code:
Dec 04 19:52:01 logging local AssaultCube server (version 1202, protocol 1201/104) now..
Dec 04 19:52:01 could not read config file 'config/maprot.cfg'
Dec 04 19:52:01 ERROR: AssaultCube fatal error: maprot unavailable

simple.. place a maprot.cfg on the config folder.

pls start the server with the appropriate script (instead of just running the binary)

also - do you think it's agood idea to run a server, given you are a "complete noob" who can't read the docs?

If you run a server, you are obliged to administrate it properly. How do you plan to do that, without reading documentation?

Server at home on Windows...

And did you already look in the game folder for the .bat?

Back in the days, I was bored with tosok and lss. So I made a server because I wanted my own. I could have my name in red and be admin. I could vote the maps I like and kick ban the assholes. It was a shitty server at first but then I learned some stuff. It made me stay. It made the game interesting again. Then I tried to improve my server so I involved myself in the game more than in any other game.

Some people helped me and I tried to help people with tutorials and videos. Assault cube is about crappy maps and crappy servers. That's how you get better, at least that's how I see the game. Wouldn't be here today without the lame maps we were uploading and having fun on, they were ugly as fuck but it was ours.
