Question Dedicated servers?

I cant seem to find any kind of official word on this subject. Can any of you help? Preferably with links that backup your replies? Are there going to be dedicated server files for the HD version?

I have a dedicated box that I would like to install and run an actual dedicated server on. I pre-ordered the game, just waiting for it to download, like everyone else. I keep hearing of the 16 man coop, but that doesnt mean there are dedicated servers. That could easily mean a coop of P2P, much like MW2 crapola.

At any rate, any *real* info on this topic is greatly appreciated...

TIA

the 16 player coop mode wont work without dedicated servers. the server files should be released in advance so there will be servers running when the actual game unlocks.

Hopefully we'll get tools for this at least later on.

Though I think the (Steam) matchmaking will be good enough for hosting games for up to 8 people or so. Besides, with more than 10 players, the levels become a rush fest anyway in my opinion.

@BlackRaven

Do you know this for certain? Do you have any links to this info???

I plan to run a server off my dedicated box, and need to be able to at least get my hands on the server files. Any idea where one would get these server files?

Noone knows for certain, but so far there's always been dedicated servers, and it's highly unlikely that Croteam decide to pull an MW2 style move and ditch the dedicated servers.

I don't think the question is "will there be?", i think the question is "when will there be?". And what i mean by when is, will it ship with the game or will it be patched in later (like they did with SS2 and DM). hell, if you're lucky, you might even get an answer directly from the devs.

Great, there will be dedicated servers, but one thing, i got a 1mbps with upload speed 0.37 mbps or more. You think how much player i can host? I can host killing floor with 6 player without lag. Also i did host counter strike source 12 player slot, with 10 player inside without lags.

Well not sure, depends on how this whole dedicated server thing actually works. I still have not gotten a definite answer on dedicated servers from any of the developers. As I have stated, if dedicated servers are possible, then I will certainly host some. I have a dedicated box with massive bandwidth. It has dual quad cores and 8 gigs of RAM, so it should be pretty sweet tomorrow playing, IF servers are available. I may have a server running both coop and deathmatch, or whatever game types are available.

All of our server info will be posted on the front page of our website. I will try to post the IP's here as well, if I have the time.

@Feelgood:
Agreed...seriously! (no pun intended). I'm all ramped up to get this game running on a hosted server and there's nothing available (yet)? The dedicated should be ready as a free download on Steam, Fileplanet, etc.

I hope you don't forget the people running Linux root servers =)

It would be nasty if one day dedicatet server will be available, but only for Windows systems.

Default Re: Dedicated servers?

We could build dedicated server version for Linux, but not sure if that would be a smart idea until one issue is resolved: how to protect a Linux server from cheating? I fear it would be much easier to hack a linux executable to change health, scores, etc, and gain undeserved entries on the leaderboards. I understand people would want it, heck I'd like to have it myself, but not sure when/whether we can resolve this. So, the first version of it will be Windows only, though I _think_ it will be runnable under Wine.

Hmm, why would a linux executable be more 'hackable'?

Also, when will we see a version without leaderboards where we can make mods on and stuff?

Is there some way you're magically preventing cheating on Windows that Linux doesn't have? Utilities exist for both Windows and Linux to hack up executables. Given enough time, if there's a desire, someone will break whatever countermeasures you're employing to prevent cheating, on any OS.

Regardless, I'm happy it's being worked on, I guess I'll have to fire up Windows server to host. Looking forward to the release.
