Master Server

Postby ricochet » Mon Feb 20, 2012 4:51 pm

Since nobody knows if and when the official master servers are gonna be back up again, i decided to run one. A couple of servers are already reporting to it.

Dansh is also running a master dedicated to smoking guns. I propose you add both to your configurations.

For admins:
Please add parttimegeeks.net:27950 and master.q3alive.net to your master servers. Example:
Code: Select all
seta sv_master3 "parttimegeeks.net:27950"
seta sv_master4 "master.q3alive.net"


For players:
WARNING:
Not all servers are reporting to this masters yet. If you have added servers to your MB manually, some of them might disappear, when you reload the server list.


Add the following to your q3config.cfg in order to get the ingame list from the server.
Code: Select all
seta sv_master1 "parttimegeeks.net:27950"

or
Code: Select all
seta sv_master1 "master.q3alive.net "


I did this succesfully in SG 1.1, it didnt work out for me using SG 1.0 however.

Modify the mods.ini file as below to enable the master in your MB (thx to dansh):
Code: Select all
Smokin' Guns - ioquake3]
mod=smokinguns
regKey=HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Smokin' Guns Productions\Smokin' Guns\InstallPath
exeName=smokinguns.exe
exePath=C:\Program Files\Smokin' Guns\smokinguns.exe
masterServer=master.ioquake3.org

[Smokin' Guns - parttimegeeks]
mod=smokinguns
regKey=HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Smokin' Guns Productions\Smokin' Guns\InstallPath
exeName=smokinguns.exe
exePath=C:\Program Files\Smokin' Guns\smokinguns.exe
masterServer=parttimegeeks.net:27950

[Smokin' Guns - q3alive]
mod=smokinguns
regKey=HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Smokin' Guns Productions\Smokin' Guns\InstallPath
exeName=smokinguns.exe
exePath=C:\Program Files\Smokin' Guns\smokinguns.exe
masterServer=master.q3alive.net


Add parttimegeeks.net:27950 and/or master.q3alive.net as master for Quake 3: Arena in XQF, use the default settings.

Ak47 has made two video tutorials:
-One on the settings for the MB http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3o2JNJJAIaM
-One on changing the in game settings http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pyYboH4rmUU.

EDIT 02-24-2012: Added master.q3alive.net to the information and fixed a c+p error. Added link to ak's videos.

Thanks Rico.

To admins all over: You could/should also send your heartbeats to dansh's "master.q3alive.net". Always nice to have alternatives, in case something bad happens (like it just has for official servers...).

Can also write to multiple master servers in config file mods.ini, for example:

Code: Select all
[Smokin' Guns - ioquake3]
mod=smokinguns
regKey=HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Smokin' Guns Productions\Smokin' Guns\InstallPath
exeName=smokinguns.exe
exePath=C:\Program Files\Smokin' Guns\smokinguns.exe
masterServer=master.ioquake3.org

[Smokin' Guns - parttimegeeks]
mod=smokinguns
regKey=HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Smokin' Guns Productions\Smokin' Guns\InstallPath
exeName=smokinguns.exe
exePath=C:\Program Files\Smokin' Guns\smokinguns.exe
masterServer=parttimegeeks.net:27950

[Smokin' Guns - q3alive]
mod=smokinguns
regKey=HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Smokin' Guns Productions\Smokin' Guns\InstallPath
exeName=smokinguns.exe
exePath=C:\Program Files\Smokin' Guns\smokinguns.exe
masterServer=master.q3alive.net

Your English is not bad, a.k47 :) Thank you for your efforts, great move.

I'm sure your videos are useful, but we can't expect that every new player will edit his q3config file. They simply will leave the game when they'll wont be able to see any server. What we need, I think, is a new SG release with new masterservers in place. @devs: is this something possible to get (also without switching from SG 1.0 to SG 1.1, if you think SG 1.1 is not ready)?

That can be useful to someone.
Compiled binaries, It is based on the source code SVN-620 revision.
Now you do not need to edit the file q3config.cfg.
In archive two files, one set on the master server master.q3alive.net, the second on - parttimegeeks.net. Unfortunately, not all servers are displayed.

Unzip to a folder Smokin' Guns and run any.

Link to DOWNLOAD

Wow, fast. Well done dansh!
I think that now some news in homepage and a link under "Download" should be necessary to help people find the right binaries. And binaries for platforms other than Windows would also be necessary.
Summarizing: an official release.

A little later, I can do for Linux i386 and x86_64. Unfortunately, I have no way to compile binaries for MacOS.

@ Dansh:
Can you tell me what you have used to build your windows binaries?
Is it based on Mingw? MS Visual?

I used MinGW. MSVS for some reason does not work correctly. Yes and MinGW is more convenient for me.
For free games - free compilers :-)

Wow, Joe Kari updated the version of SVN - came the official master server - master.smokinguns.fr. I added a tab on the website with the official master server master.smokinguns.fr, to see what servers are already working through the official master server.

Yes, I have started a dpmaster service at master.smokinguns.fr.

It would be nice if server's admin may consider sending heartbeat to it, so I can check if it works well and is suitable as the official master server for the next SG release.
