How to Run Demoliton on your server - viewtopic.php?f=11&t=47129





Here is a guide I've been working on.

From your control panel, click the Config Tab. It should then bring up this page
Image

There you can see a list of options. You have the following variables ( You should be able to Copy and Paste this straight into the screen.)

Code: Select all

// Server host name. This should always be set by the server admin.
set sv_hostname "Gameservers.com MW3"

// Dedicated server play list (DSPL) specifying server map rotation.
//    Valid game options are controlled via DSR (dedicated server recipe) specified in the DSPL.
set sv_maprotation "default"

// Maximum number of clients that may connect to this server (You can not have more than 18 players on a server)
set sv_maxclients 18

// Server password. If set, users will be prompted on join attempt.
set g_password ""

// Maximum number of private clients allowed on the server (range 0-18 (clamped to sv_maxclients) )
set sv_privateClients 0

// Password for the private slots on this server. If set, users will be prompted on join attempt.
//    Users providing this password will have access to all slots.
//    Users providing an incorrect password will have access to the (sv_maxClients - sv_privateClients) public slots.
set sv_privatePassword ""

// Remote console password. If set, users will have access to a remote console, allowing server administration from a connected client.
set rcon_password ""

// Server voice chat configuration ( 0 = "No Chat", 1 = "Free Chat", 2 = "Team Chat" (default) )
set sv_voice 2

// Toggle voting for [player kick/map restart/next map] (0 or 1 (default) )
set g_allowVote 1

// Toggle allowing dead players to chat with living players (0 (default) or 1)
set g_deadChat 0

// Time in seconds before the server will kick a user for inactivity (range 0 - 10000)
set g_inactivity 90

// Time in seconds for a player temporary ban (on kick/tempban) (range 0 - 3600)
set sv_kickBanTime 300

// Toggle flood protection (throttling of user commands - should be enabled for non-password-protected Internet servers) (0 or 1 (default))
set sv_floodProtect 1


Screen 2
Image

Code: Select all

Here are the variables 
///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
///////////Modern Warfare 3 dedicated server default playlist//////////////
///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

//format is
//<mapname>, <dsr filename>, <weight>

//<mapname>
//valid mapnames:
//[b] These are the maps [/b]
//*
//mp_alpha
//mp_bootleg
//mp_bravo
//mp_carbon
//mp_dome
//mp_exchange
//mp_hardhat
//mp_interchange
//mp_labmeth
//mp_mogadishu
//mp_paris
//mp_plaza2
//mp_radar
//mp_seatown
//mp_underground
//mp_village
//<dlc maps> (included under '*')

//dsr filename [b] you can edit these game types specifically, read below [/b]
//name of recipe file without the dsr extension
//included in this package are the following recipe defaults:
//TDM_default    (Team Deathmatch)
//DOM_default    (Domination)
//CTF_default    (Capture The Flag)
//DZ_default     (Drop Zone)
//FFA_default    (Free For All)
//GG_default   (Gun Game)
//HQ_default   (Headquarters)
//INF_default   (Infected)
//JUG_default   (Juggernaut)
//KC_default   (Kill Confirmed)
//OIC_default   (One In The Chamber)
//SAB_default   (Sabotage)
//SD_default   (Search and Destroy)
//TDEF_default   (Team Defender)
//TJ_default   (Team Juggernaut)

// Weight (1->1000)
// Selection is weighted random (higher weights increase selection chance)

*,TDM_default,1
mp_alpha,DOM_default,1
mp_bootleg,DOM_default,1
*,TDEF_default,1000
mp_bravo,JUG_default,1

Screen 3 - 15

Image

These are where you are able to edit your Game modes as mentioned above.

I will not post the contents of these modes because they are too big. However, you are able to go in to the multiplayer on your computer, create your own custom recipe, and then you are able to save it to disc.
Image

To do this, select Game setup from private match screen. You will then see the options from the bottom as circled above. To create a recipe, select Mode, this will give you the option of a game mode
Image

From here, select your mode, it will with return you to the game setup screen
Image

Then select Options. It will bring up all the options that can be changed
Image

Customise your game here, then click save settings or press F1
Image

From there, Select a mode
Image

Click a mode, and you will then get returned to the options screen

From there, click Back. Then click Save recipie to disc.

Then name your Recipe
Image.


You can then close the Game

Then go to your computer and select which drive the game is saved on
Image

From there, go to Program Files ( or Program Files [x86] If running windows 64 bit ) Image

Then select your steam folder
Image

After that, select steamapps
Image

Then select common
Image

Select Modern Warfare 3
Image

Then select the folder Admin
Image

Then find the game mode you saved
Image

Double click to open, then click select custom program
Image

Then scroll down and find Notepad and double click
Image

You will then get a bunch of random words open up.. Select all the words and copy them Image

Copy and paste that into your GS config File for the game mode ( because we are editing a HQ game mode, we will post it in the default HQ mode )
Image

Copy and paste then click save
Image

then go back to default.dspl ( or screen 2 as above ) and change the line accordingly

Code: Select all

 *,HQ_default,1
mp_alpha,HQ_default,1
mp_bootleg,HQ_default,1
*,HQ_default,1000
mp_bravo,JUG_default,1


Restart your server and you should be done! :)

Hopefully this answers all your questions. If you have any more, post below for the community to help you out!

When you are already connected to a gameserver with a password on it, friends can join off you without having to put in a password. It is supposed to be like that

most likely the password you are entering is for privates slots on the server if your freinds connect with the steam freinds list then they donot get asked the private slot password you get in the server browser

As in the console you get when you press the ` key? There is a setting in settings somewhere.. I can't remember where.
