Thought I might want to write a little tut. for those of you who wants to create a private server for Battlefield 2.
Here we go:
1) Download the serverfiles HERE
and install them. (On your server offcourse).
2) There's a manual on this site for Battlefield Vietnam. HERE
Follow the exact steps in this manual. After you've download the rar-file containing rules.tcl (step 3), edit this file in notepad. Copy & paste the following into this file, overwriting the rest of the information in this file:# drop packets composed of small fragments
option small_frags on eth0
# default ruleset
pass in on eth0 all
pass out on eth0 all
# blocks Key-validation
block out on eth0 proto udp from any port > 1000 to any port = 29910
block in on eth0 proto tcp from any port = 1433 to any port = 1433
block in on eth0 proto tcp from any port = 1434 to any port = 1434
block in on eth0 proto udp from any port = 139 to any port = 139
block in on eth0 proto tcp from any port = 139 to any port = 139
Next, continue the steps on THIS
When you're done. It should all work fine, without any CD-verification.
