Author Topic: Can anyone give me any guidance for setting up a LAN server?  (Read 335 times)

Hello. Looking to set up a LAN server for FOnline Reloaded for me and a few friends to play together on. I'm not interested in modifying the game at all, simply want to experience it as is. We plan on using a LAN service such as LogMeIn Hamachi to connect. I'm almost entirely illiterate when it comes to this, would anyone be kind enough to explain to me how to do this? I've tried to do some searching around, but most info seems incomplete or is incredibly out of date. Thank you!

IN ENGLISH
1 - Download Fonline: 2238 (Both server and client).
https://github.com/rotators/fo2238
http://fo2238.fodev.net/source/FOnline2238.client+mapper.zip
2 - Unzip both files in the same folder ("fo2238-master" by default).
3 - With Notepad open the Fonline.cfg file and modify the line "PatchDatPat" leaving "PatchDatPath = faction.zip".
4 - With Notepad open the FonlineServer.cfg file and change the line "Port = 2238" to "Port = 4000".
5 - Activate the server by entering the "Server" folder and then clicking on "FonlineServer.exe" and wait for it to start.
6 - Activate the client by entering the "Client" folder and then pressing "Fonline.exe".

Note: In case of an error, close both the client and the server, enter the folder "data" in "Client" and then "cache". Delete all cache files except "default.cache" and start all over again.

EN ESPAƑOL
1 - Descarga Fonline: 2238 (Tanto server como cliente).
https://github.com/rotators/fo2238
http://fo2238.fodev.net/source/FOnline2238.client+mapper.zip
2 - Descomprime ambos archivos en una misma carpeta ("fo2238-master" por defecto).
3 - Con Notepad abre el archivo Fonline.cfg y modifica la linea "PatchDatPat" quedando asi "PatchDatPath = faction.zip".
4 - Con Notepad abre el archivo FonlineServer.cfg y modifica la linea "Port=2238" por "Port=4000".
5 - Activa el server ingresando a la carpeta "Server" y luego pulsando sobre "FonlineServer.exe" y espera a que inicie.
6 - Activa el cliente ingresando a la carpeta "Client" y luego pulsando "Fonline.exe".

Nota: En caso de tener un error, cerra tanto el cliente como el servidor, entra a la carpeta "data" en "Client" y luego a "cache". Elimina todos los archivos cache menos "default.cache" y e inicia todo de nuevo.

Thank you so much, I appreciate it! Though I am having trouble with my friend joining. He is connecting to the server and getting onto a black screen with a spinning watch. I can see him connect on the server scree, but after a few seconds, it kicks him out and the server reads Connection timeout, client kicked, maybe bot. Any help with this?

I'm glad I helped you. I will be for what you need. You should still know that there is a superior version, the last one, but I still can't compile it. When I know I will publish it. Regards.
