Isn't it possible to set up a server @ 500servers with the tweak enabled? Many people has servers running there, and they are online 24/7 :)

7th April 2007, 22:45
there server was up from 2 till 3:30, with not even 1 person connected, so, i closed it down.

Next session is Sunday Nite.

Tweak cannot be run over a dedicated host, it can, and it cant.

Tweak modifys LFS's memory address's (example - Address number 900 can the code for the XFG's number of engine cylinders and so on)

unfortunatly, LFS's own dedicated host program, doesnt use these memory access codes, or rather, tweak doesnt recognise it as LFS Running.

The only way to get Tweak to run on a Dedi Server, is to actually have LFS Running, but, this requires the server its hosted on to have some sort of GFX Card that can handle bare minimum LFS (In most cases, they cant).

so, unless i find some kind person, who has a Server, with a decent GFX Card, its going to have to stay hosted off my PC.

But we had the problem of the server not actually being available to use when you had the Banger League.

Have you completely lost it Giz lmao.

Back when you used to run the ORL, you had the server hosted from your PC, and we just had loads of problems. Sometimes it wasnt on the Master Server, we had lag issues...Lets hope we find that kind person..

7th April 2007, 23:11
that wasnt a connection problem, it was my PC itself.

I have yet, built a new PC then, and can race with more than 4 cars, over 10fps :P

What time is the server up today mate.

8th April 2007, 16:59
Will be up at around 8-ish :)

8th April 2007, 18:51
Server is up now.

Join when you want, but if its dead, im shutting it at 9 :)

Edit - Any problems, hit a post on here, or add me via MSN or something :)

8th April 2007, 19:06
hmm, here on the forum I can see that you are online at the server but I cant find it on the server list :shrug:

8th April 2007, 19:07
try searching my user name.

8th April 2007, 19:14
I'm getting clientconnect:connect failed

8th April 2007, 19:14
I did and found you but I cant connect?

says "ClientConnect : Connect failed"

and I did load the latest tweak

8th April 2007, 19:15
Fugger, ill close the server down and re-host it.

if somone could grab me on MSN or something, so, i can go with getting the server running with them

8th April 2007, 19:24
any luck?

8th April 2007, 19:26

8th April 2007, 19:27
It doesn't work for me too. If I search ur username, it finds that you are in Starlet Grand Cup server. When I try to connect, it stalls at "connecting to host" and then returns me to the connecting page or displays an error message, containing: "clientconnect: connect failed" :shrug:

8th April 2007, 19:29
yep, cant connect either. :shrug:

8th April 2007, 19:31
F**k, i know the issue is my wireless connection. if you connect at the right time, it connects.

well, ill postpone this to next weekend, when im gunna wire my network

8th April 2007, 19:32
Yea, wireless aint good for hosting, since there is packet loss.

8th April 2007, 19:38
yeah, i get packet loss, but not tons of it.

I was going to wire my network last week, but the cable i order came out to short

9th April 2007, 20:30
its actually quite easy to manipulate a dedi to run the tweak if you have desktop admin access on the box ... dunno how to do it via c or vb though

9th April 2007, 21:52
its not possible (atm) to run tweak using LFS Dedi. Because LFSTweak uses LFS Memory access codes, wether as the LFSDedi Doesnt

9th April 2007, 22:03
yes it is i just had my own little lfs v dedi running with your latest tweak

9th April 2007, 22:04
Wah? More info.

By Dedi, you mean the Dedicated Host Program, and not actually Running LFS?

9th April 2007, 22:09
yes i mean the dedicated host and like i said all you need to do it is admin desktop axx to the box thats running the dedi and a memory hex editor
unless someone here is able to tell me how to access a processes memory that is then i would be able to come up with something to do it for you (would probably still need admin axx though)

9th April 2007, 22:12
Great! if you could get it working via Dedi host and not LFS, i could put it on UKCT Server as a Dedi :)

9th April 2007, 22:15
like i said if youve got admin desktop axx to the ukct server and a working memory editor on that box you could be up and running within a few secs

12th April 2007, 20:42
any progress in the server problem yet?

12th April 2007, 21:46
Nope, havnt got a dedicated one up yet.

But according to samh, the coder of Tweak V, is working on a version that works with LFS Dedi :)

13th April 2007, 05:38
kewl, looking forward to that.
really want to see this thing going :p
