About a week ago I whipped up a post about the things I thought needed to be changed with the current BC2 server to the anonymous donor (thank you Mr. X), but found out that the server was terminated, so I pulled it.

I know the server was rarely being used but Id still be happy to run a new SimHQ BC2 server up until the end of October after BF3 gets released and then continue with BF3. (I REALLY like the Battlefield series and DICE thumbsup).

After well over 300 hours of my own BC2 multiplayer experience, these are my suggestions for a fun server ...

- Original BC2 content+DLC only ... no Vietnam (great expansion but modern combat rules smile )
- BF3 content to be discussed when it becomes available
- non-hardcore
- 24 players
- Mixed mode, two rounds per map ... switching sides for Conquest and attack/defend phases for Rush
- Limit snipers to ? number per side ... still not sure about this. Im thinking 2.

Im just throwing ideas around here ... any thoughts or interest would be appreciated ...

IMO... SimHQ is done with server hosting for BFBC2 after the loaner expired, but we will be getting a BF3 server day 1. Just FYI on the official stance.

Im not sure whats up with the disinterest in BC2 since BF3 just seems to be an enhanced version of it from what Ive seen.

Good to know that SimHQ will be getting a BF3 server though thumbsup

Out of my own curiosity I went ahead and set up a BC2 server based on the specs I mentioned above. I know itll probably lay dormant but I was interested in how to set up a Frostbite Engine based game server and have absolute control over it.

If any other SimHQ members are interested in some basic admin functions for this server like moving players to the other team, restarting rounds and moving to the next level, just PM me your BC2 handle and Ill put you on the admin list and send you the commands.



I think I have a pretty sweet and varied map rotation going ... 66% Conquest, 33% Rush ...

Conquest Heavy Metal
Conquest Oasis
Rush Cold War
Conquest Harvest Day
Conquest Laguna Presa
Rush Oasis
Conquest Nelson Bay
Conquest Arica Harbor
Rush Harvest Day
Conquest Atacama Desert
Conquest Laguna Alta
Rush Atacama Desert
Conquest Panama Canal
Conquest Heavy Metal
Rush Laguna Presa
Conquest Oasis
Conquest Harvest Day
Rush Nelson Bay
Conquest Laguna Presa
Conquest Nelson Bay
Rush Arica Harbor
Conquest Atacama Desert
Conquest Laguna Alta
Rush Isla Inocentes
Conquest Panama Canal
Conquest Heavy Metal
Rush Valparaso

Cheers!

Thanks for hosting a server, Dirt. Friend me on BC2. I still play it. My username is saghen I tried to friend you in-game, but perhaps it didn't work, as documented in other threads.

BC2 Doesn't seem dead to me. I've been playing every night, and there are plenty of servers out there. Sometimes I have to wait to get in the one I want.

Saghen, I just gave you some admin privileges.

Just hit your in game chat key and type the following ...

@restart (restart the current map)

@nextlevel (next map)

@move [playername] (move that player to the other team)

Have fun! (let me know if it works or not)
