xx {SoE} FrostFight Server Info
« Thread started on: Mar 21st, 2008, 1:40pm »

Our main server "Shadows Of Empirion" is running MP3 permanently 24/7. However, my server "{SoE} FrostFight" can be found at different MW4 versions from time to time:

MW4 Vengeance***:
{SoE} FrostFight Veng

Mercs PR1:
{SoE} FrostFight PR1

Mercs MP3.02b:
{SoE} FrostFight MP3

Mercs NBT-HC:
{SoE} FrostFight HC

I would suggest to add the server IP to the game connection:
mw4frost.dyndns.org

!! Important: Plz allow old and new game versions at ingame server browser under options. Then you can always see with which mw4 version my server is running at the moment (even mw4 vengeance from within Mercs ingame server browser!).

*** For my Venge server, plz make sure that you have the following custom map packs installed:
MW4 Veng MapPack Part 1 (136 MB)
http://filemojo.com/0088159430
http://www.divshare.com/download/1201701-33b

MW4 Veng MapPack Part 2 (108 MB)

Hi Everyone!

Recently I restarted my Venge server "FrostFight Veng" on Friday evenings CET. Well, after having played nearly all Mercs versions - Venge is still my favorite! wink

Lately we had our first "Venge Reunion Game" - it was a BIG SUCCESS !! FrostFight was full for most of the evening! grin grin

Plz check new "FrostFight Server Info" page for current information:

Just added the heat index data of Veng custom maps to FrostFight MW4 website:
http://mw4frost.mw.funpic.de/heatindex_veng.html

Quite important for hla games. Heat index = 1 means heat sink efficiency = 100% on a given map.
Heat index data of those custom maps are in a wide range between 0.5 for the hottest map Solardesert and 2.0 for the coldest map Deep Pit (MS Venge maps go from Dustbowl = 0.8 to Lunacy = 1.7). So it's always a good idea to check the heat index of the current map before selecting a certain mech config... wink
There's also a MWL link to heat index data of Microsoft maps.

Btw Jack, would it be useful to put a FrostFight button on WPPC website at "Mech Warrior Utilities" or "Clan Websites & Affiliates"? What do ya think? Should add some useful information to support MW4 community:
-Map Installation, -Port Forwarding, -Map Heat Index, -FrostFight Server Info...

Thanks Jack! If anyone knows other useful mw4 stuff that I should add to my page, plz let me know.

I like this link button gallery at WPPC website, it's a useful thing and easy to navigate!
Btw what about adding a MekTek link button, could be usefull too (MekTek forum, MekTek patches downwload...)

Installation:
- double click the installer file (EmpirionCity_V1.exe)
- Important: set the correct "Extract to" folder!

=> For typical English/U.S. Windows/MW4 installation change the path to:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\MechWarrior Vengeance

Doum, plz check whether the map files are in the right place. The 2 texture files go to \RESOURCE\MAPS\ and the 4 mission files go to \RESOURCE\UserMissions\ (assuming you have U.S. standard MW4 installation).

=> the 2 texture files must be there:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\MechWarrior Vengeance\RESOURCE\MAPS\
beta6a.mw4
beta6a.dep

=> the 4 mission files must be there:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\MechWarrior Vengeance\RESOURCE\UserMissions\
empirion-city.nfo
empirion-city.mw4
empirion-city.dep
empirion-city.tga

If these files are not in \MAPS and \UserMissions in exactly this way, search for these 6 files on your hard disk and move them to the right place. Installing map files to the wrong direction may cause severe problems! For example, the map files of custom maps must NOT be in \RESOURCE\Missions, that may crash the game !!
More info on map installation and troubleshooting:
http://www.mechwarrior4.net/Info/viewtopic.php?t=5&sid=c7a0ed6c65663d09141610288e395e11

If this doesn't help, the map download migth be corrupted. Plz download map installer file again and reinstall. Disable any download manager, as many file hosting websites dont't support them. Don't forget to change the default path to the correct root directory of your MW4 Venge installation as mentioned in my post above.

Btw:
- Map author is =SoE=Kampfsau, I was only involved in map testing and I made the installer.
- We did some extensive map testing on multiplayer prior to map release. Correctly installed, the map works flawlessly.
- Last weekend we played the new map with many ppl on FrostFight server, among them Yardbird and SomeHope (in total >15 players on this map on Friday and Sunday). There were ppl with German and ppl with US game installation.
-The map definitely works and we really had a blast playing it! No one else reported any problems, so Doum I guess the problem is most likely on your side.

Plz report back!

I didnt knew what to do since i remove it all. I seach everywhere but noway, nothing work. so i close evrything and went to bed. Then back from work at 6 PM today i restart my computer and it work. huh Dunno why. May be if i had restart my computer yesterday it would of work. Anyway, i retry to install the same way as yesterday with a low conviction that it will work but it work. smiley

So the problem was from my part but i dunno what it was.

!! New multiplayer map FrostArena for MW4 Vengeance (by =SoE=Kampfsau) !!

Download:
http://mw4frost.mw.funpic.de/venge_maproom.html

Both EmpirionCity and FrostArena now have a new installer. For both maps I used the clickteam install creator software. Should provide an easier and more reliable install procedure than the zip file extractor used so far. Main advantage is the installer's auto detect feature of default Windows install path.
