AA Game browser list...


Recommended Posts

If you install the game server preserving your INI file settings, you will be missing a needed entry to access the new AA Browser Master Server. Please be sure the following lines exist in your server INI file:





This will insure proper AA Browser updates of servers and players.


Once these settings have been added, restart your game server.


If you still exhibit problems, be sure that TCP port 20047 is open in your firewall so that the game server can communicate with the AA Browser Master Server.

Easier way to do this--

in your game install dir-


(or whatever location you are installing the game from)


in the aa/System/pb dir

just create 2 files

one called pbsvgame.cfg

sv_punkbuster 1

that tells that game to start PB - so what happens is, you install the game to some user_dir and by default PB is enabled.

the other file

Game is created with PB running + whatever you want for pb defaults.

can even have it setup all the screenshot stuff, the pb_webtool stuff etc etc etc..

Thanks! :D One thing... Everytime I create a server I'd always have to make sure that login name is in there and password, etc to have GameSpy or AAMBS detect the server. How do make that already setup? That way customers don't have to figure things out.
