Posted by on - Basic Server Tools

Q: AMXX WON2 Incompatible addons Fix all files necessary, though the server always appears as offline.

A: Make sure at least the following parameters are set accordingly: game, maxplayers, sv_lan, map. A common mistake is to forget the latter.

Q: HLDS takes very long to launch and to appear as online.

A: This may happen if you have added -secure to your command-line. As WAC is no longer operational, this causes HLDS attempting to contact the WAC servers which have been shutdown. You should remove this parameter, while making sure secure is set to 0 in the file liblist.gam which can be found in the folder of the MOD you are running.

Q: I have set sv_lan to 1, but whenever I try to join the server I get an error related to "Class C LAN" addresses.

A: You must apply the Next patch and set "sv_lan 1" to "sv_lan 0".

Q: My server does not get listed on WON2.

A: First, you should make sure you have installed the WON2 listing patch which is also required for servers. Once this patch is installed and your server is operational, it might take a while for your server's heartbeat to propagate throughout all WON2 master servers. Generally this could take up to a few hours.

If you have properly installed the patch and your server still does not pop up in the lists, make sure your firewall and/or router is configured properly and does not block any server ports. By default these are 27015 for HLDS and 27010 for the master servers.

Q: Does WON2 support CS Beta servers?

A: All HLDS versions are supported by the WON2 master servers. Obviously, note that players will need to have the corresponding client version to be able to join your server.

Q: My Counter-Strike 1.5 server crashes when a player joins. I am running AMX Mod X 1.8x.

A: One of the plugins automatically loaded by AMXX when CS is detected is incompatible with WON2-based servers. To fix this, download this fixed version of the plugin:

AMXX Fix - Put this in your addons/amxmodx/modules folder
