Help us making Cry of Fear servers!
« on: 14 June, 2012, 12:48:38 AM »
Hey guys. I just have to say, it's a very sad view to go to the server browser and see almost no servers. So many people are missing out the awesome multiplayer modes, such as the co-op campaign or the suicide mode.

That's why I'm asking you the community, if you want to help out making servers? It would be so helpfull for us, since we're such a small team and don't have the time to do all this stuff!

Here's an awesome tutorial on how to set up a proper real server: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gUfV9O0ST7g&feature=g-all-f

We would gladly appriciate any server, that would make our day(s). :stig:

Problem is that when you create server it isn't listed in server list. In my opinion windows vds is best option, but it's quite expensive for 1 person

If you set it up correctly, it will be listed.

I can enter to your server, but my connection isn't very good, so I will leave it to other day, also, when I entered I got stuck and couldn't move.

Cool, I'll definitely look into it. The multiplayer sections just aren't as fun when you do them alone.

Alright guys, after alot of trouble, the 24/7 dedicated server is done 


About the server---

-We run suicide mode when the server is going slow (around 1-3 people) and the maps automatically rotate.
-When the server gets a descent number of people then on request the map can be switched to co-op.
-I hope to have server plugins that make it a little bit more unique and help make it have a custom feel. (will happen later)
-We currently have 4 admins (although unnecessary) incase shit hits the fan.   

Side note:

The I.P for the server is: 173.89.165.189:27015

It seems I cannot get the server to appear on the list, this is a new issue, as all of the servers I host appear just fine on other games, I'll keep looking into this issue  :stig:

Because of this you have to add that I.P up there to your favorites to see it.

This is awesome, this is the first server that's actually worked. I need some help in there though :)

Awesome server!

Try any of these things to see if you can make it show up in the server browser:
