Post by: Led on May 28, 2014, 06:27:20 PM
IMPORTANT:  GameMaster will shut down on 6/1/2016.  SWBFspy will take its place.  These directions are somewhat out dated.  Ask for the new patches if you need help.

NEW:  watch these instructions on video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v5UaYBcApW4

International Instructions
http://www.swbfgamers.com/index.php?topic=8758.0


You need to either replace your Battlefront.exe file:

Here is an automatic gamemaster patch installer

http://www.swbfgamers.com/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=1147


 
or to manually install it

http://www.swbfgamers.com/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=1144

Note:  if replacing your battlefront.exe file, you may need to delete your "virtual store"
This link will show you where it is located:
http://scorpionqa.wordpress.com/2010/01/25/how-to-locate-your-hidden-virtual-store-in-windows-7/
Basically, it makes a copy of things for quick loading, but that can interfere with the new exe file that you just got.

you can find it here:
 C:\Users\your_user_name\AppData\Local\VirtualStore


Or, edit your hosts file (see this tutorial)
http://www.swbfgamers.com/index.php?topic=7840.0


If you are really brave, you can try the hex edits mentioned in the post below.  Be sure you make a copy of your original exe file first!


If your language for battlefront.exe is not supported, please let us know.

-have you tried the no-cd version?
http://www.swbfgamers.com/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=1144
-also, clear out your virtual store, just in case

Regarding teamspeak, certainly, get some players on it.  It can be loads of fun.  Let me know if it goes down and I will restart it (it does that some times).   Oh, and I put a widget on the home page so everyone can see who is on TS.

I can make a private BOB channel on it, and I can also set your clan up with a private board on this forum.

When using GameMaster, I go in game, and after a few minutes I start lagging. And it just gradually builds into more... more lag. Eventually it just finally tells me battlefront.exe has stopped working and closes out the game.
Any help? Please? Greatly appreciated...

No. Quite infact I have checked for overheating before but my computer is the coldest piece of metal in my room...
I'm not sure what's causing this...
But I have a hunch its something that I may have accidently downloaded with another file.
I'm going to start backing things up that I want and reset my PC... maybe.

You need to either replace your Battlefront.exe file:

Led, are you one of the developers of GameMaster, and if not are you in close contact with the developers? I ask because this seems like the best work-around option currently and I need to know some more specific information from it.

Currently the PS2 community will have no method to play the game after it shuts down because none of the other work-around options like Tunngle or Gameranger would function because these are separate applications with downloads required. This, on the other hand, seems like a simple modification which changes the .exe and tells it to get the server list from a different address.

If it works like I think it does, then it would also would function on PS2, because we have the capability built in to change what DNS address we connect to. This method was used previously play SWBF1 on OpenSpy, and GameMaster sounds exactly like OpenSpy, but much better.

I just need to know what DNS address I should use to test out GameMaster. Any information would be appreciated.

EDIT: is it 5.230.233.61   ?
Title: Re: How to Play SWBF with new GameMaster masterserver internet option
Post by: Led on May 31, 2014, 03:07:23 AM
Hi Mike,

I think you found the information you need to try things out.  The developers are a German group at www.swbf3.de.  A player name Kalle has been helpful.

I am not sure everything is fully functional with GameMaster, but I suspect they can help.

I have to note that we went through this all one year ago with something called OpenSpy, but it never really worked very well for us.  So far, this seems better.

Do you play PS2 SWBF2?  If so, you may want to contact someone called "PyroJockey" .  He has some experience getting these things figured out, and has an account here you can contact him with.  Tirpider may also be able to help you.

Post by: StoneCold on May 31, 2014, 03:50:17 AM
The only thing we need is more servers (like mine) with the tps command set to 60 or more. Playing on a server with a tps of 20/30 really makes it unplayable in my book.  :(

I think I have it, but I'm not sure. I will try to contact Kalle directly on that site to get some more info, thanks.

Yea this looks like a similar thing hopefully, but better. Currently OpenSpy is out of date. The last update was May 1st I believe. As of that update, hosting 4-man servers from a Playstation 2 was possible on SWBF1 and 2, but they only functioned properly on SWBF1. I believe they are in need of a new C++ coder for another update. Currently OpenSpy is not properly configured to send the Server List to PS2s or PCs. GameMaster looks like it should effectively do the same thing, but better since they have more active people working on it.
Do you play PS2 SWBF2?  If so, you may want to contact someone called "PyroJockey" .  He has some experience getting these things figured out, and has an account here you can contact him with.  Tirpider may also be able to help you.
I do indeed play, and I would hate to see GameSpy take the game away from us. I help the PS2 competitive ladder site over at: http://theswbfc.forumotion.com
I've pretty much been playing the game every day for the past 2 months. We squeezed in 1 more season before the 31st. I'm trying to keep everyone over there informed on if we'll be able to play after the shutdown. I just wish I had a testable solution sooner for everyone. I wanted to spread the word before people started to leave the community.

And yes, I know Pyro and I talk to him about this stuff  8). We're working on testing this but we've hit a roadblock for now because I'm not certain that I have the right DNS address.

Thank you for all the helpful information. I think you put me on the right track for who to ask.

Hmm, well the exodous from Trummble was quick and decisive. I suppose it must be a success. However after following a large number of instructions in regard to exe.files and replacing hosts etc , I can still only play via this
VPN.
Any attempt to access the internet leads to a long drawn out loading window in white,just says 'Loading.......'
for ages, and then does it some more.
Is there a concise and definative series of steps? Or will it just be a 'trial and error' approach?
There seems to be a number of different options, which one works?
By the way Trummble works well now...

4lbLordUxor, you need to try this version which usually fixes that problem, all that you should be experiencing is an autorun issue:

If it doesn't work then yes you have a problem!

I have just reset my PC and am working on restoring all the files I backed up. They will be in the works this week and I will be gone to camp. So... when I come back, maybe my SWBF will work right...

Rename your original battlefront.exe to Originalbattlefront.exe. Then rename the modified exe that you downloaded to play internet to Battlefront.exe. I don't know but that worked for me lol

Post by: RepComm on June 02, 2014, 12:34:51 PM
I do not know how the nickchanger works exactly, but I don't think a differing server will break functionality, and I do not think renaming the executable is a good idea, unless it attaches to the process (in which case is named "battlefront" anyways, which is weird..).

There's only one way to find out of course ^^
Also, do note that nick changer seems to malfunction from time to time, it will just stop working for a little bit for me, and I know others have had the same scenarios.

BB's nickchanger is a memory hack that searches for battlefont.exe.  So yes, I expect that it would not work if you do not rename the new exe file to battlefront.exe.

Interesting. I too was able to play SWBF1 on OpenSpy and it worked fine, but it wasn't configured properly to work on SWBF2. That's why I am trying to use GameMaster for SWBF2 for now. I think I may have the wrong DNS address, but I'm not sure yet.

Thanks to Led I was able to track down and talk to the developers of GameMaster directly over here:
http://gameshare.co/forum/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=8

I think they are interested in supporting PC and PS2 which is good news for everybody. I think I can get everything sorted out soon.

Make sure you put Battlefront.exe in the correct folder (GameData) and make sure you run "Battlefront.exe", or make a shortcut to it.  Do not run the "LaunchBF.exe" file.

I used the GameMaster Install and I got the little box with Install and Unistall pop up. It then said you should now be able to play SWBF online. I went into my gamedata folder and clicked both the Battlefront.exe and later the Battlefront_Gamespy.exe. Neither of them worked for me as the internet showed no servers.

I am using the no cd Battlefront.exe btw. Any suggestions for a fix?

Edit: Never mind, I got it working.

There should be 10 or so servers on line.  Can you describe what steps you took to look for servers?

There may or may not be anyone playing right now.

You may have to use the manual patch method instead of the automatic patcher if it is in another location.

I'm helping someone install Gamemaster now and they haven't got 7zip, i'll unzip it for the but it might be an idea to have an unzipped version here. Or better still an installer that un-zips itself. :)

Have them use the Automatic installer

only regular zip is required.   :cheers:

Hey guys!

So I just got everything working on my Mac, I got the game ported and the internet working so I can see all the servers, but it won't let me get on the main server with everyone. I can get on most of the other servers, but when I try to join the CCfastspawn server it tells me my CD Key isn't authorized. Any thoughts?

Thanks!

For other people, that has meant there was a firewall issue.

That's happened to me as well. Wine seems to be pretty temperamental, sometimes it just seems to work if you relaunch the game a few times.

Another issue I've found is that I can't join password locked rooms, as the prompt window to enter a password is somehow missing.

I wonder if a shell script mod could fix that. ifs_mp_sessionlist.lua is the largest script in the game though, so it would probably be difficult.

This happened to me like 2 years ago, and it was cause i had the 1.0 shell, so i guess u could just change it and try

See its working on and off.. Ive tired a few different cd keys and that hasn't helped. It seems like it depends on the number of people in the server... but that doesn't make sense to me... I always have trouble joining when there are like 8+ people already playing, but if there are like 1-5 I can join fine.

I, uh, just got the same message ("Your CD Key is Not Authorized To Play This Game").
I'm on Windows 8.1.
The server I tried to enter was the first one on the "{PLA} PC Servers" list that appears on the right hand of the homepage, immediately below "Recent Posts."  It even did that weird thing where it'd show me in the players list when I looked from the lobby but still, not authorized.

I made sure to check that there was an exception with the firewall in the control panel thing.
What else do I need to do?

Your CD Key is Not Authorized To Play This Game is a server sided issue. once the server is rebooted this message will go away.

That's the best way but my game, on Windows 7 64bit, crashes if I use the desktop icon. I have to start like this;

- When I want to join the only server online "<AR>||Train||" (or something like that, it tells me I have to download something but what ? :o

EDIT: And when i click on "internet" after "Multiplayer" a window appears and I can read "[NULL]. Idk if it's a bug or ... ? And when I close it I have the GameSpy thing (connect with account, etc).
