Modified startup files! DICE-BOOM, M1, everything or mixed!

Wed May 29, 2013 2:34 pm

Preamble
Here are some modified startup-00.fbrb files, they feature different configurations like unlocking the M1 Garand gun, optionally with the DICE-BOOM Specialization or everything unlocked.
All startup files support the new "MIXED" gamemode which allows BC2, Vietnam, Rush and Conquest Maps in one map-/playlist. Note that this will list vietnam maps within the normal BC2 serverlist, for vietnam servers these files shouldn't be required at all as the M1 is a default weapon, DICE-BOOM doesn't exist and unlocking everything in Vietnam takes only a few hours.

Have fun :)

Installation Instructions
Just put the new startup-00.fbrb files in "<ServerRoot>\dist\linux\async", overwrite or rename the old one.

MIXED Playlist How-To
1. Using PRoCon
This is the easiest way to manage your maps within the new gamemode.
Replace your BFBC2 Definitions files, download this and extract the included files in "<PRoCon Root>/Configs".
Make sure to uncheck the option "Include check for new game configs in update check" in the ProCon options. You can then just change the playlist to "Mixed" in ProCon and adjust the maplist to your preferences.

2. Other Rcon Apps
There are different Methods how you can do this:
  • Manually switch the playlist by editing the maplist and restart the server (see 3.) then adjust the maplist
  • Use the command "admin.setPlaylist MIXED" to switch to MIXED playlist, then refresh your application if needed and set the new maplist
Some programs may require changes to their files.

3. Manually edit the maplist
You can create a new maplist with "MIXED" as the gamemode by putting it in the first line of the file:

Code: Select all

MIXED
Levels/MP_005GR 2
Levels/NAM_MP_002R 0
Levels/NAM_MP_005CQ 0
Levels/MP_005 1

This example contains Rush and Conquest with Vietnam and BC2 maps.


Downloads
Extra note on the last file: This will only make every weapon available to anyone on your server, the global unlocks on the players account are not affected.

All Files were only tested with R34 server, they may not work with R30/R32

It would be nice to know what you've exactly edited to enable the weapon.
I already browsed through the archive but I couldn't find anything, maybe I'm to lazy for that, atm. :D

Re: M1, DICE-BOOM or eveything unlocked startup files!

Updated: I added a variant with everything unlocked to enable serveradmins to allow a fair game and maybe compensate for stats losses.

You can also use it for servers intended for competetive play.

Enjoy the magic!
