Attention all game server admins! There is available a new version of the dedicated server for Soldat. Versions for Linux and Windows are in the same file. Many issues have been fixed since the last version but some may still remain. Please post your problems on the Soldat Forums "Server Corps".

Also I added a new download page "Other". I will add there whatever I like. At the beggining you can download from the page: Soldat translations, banners and buttons, bots and the oldest Soldat version!

CoolZ! :D...Looking forward!

Omg, the Barret is so overpowered! Otherwise it rocks. Shame you can't change the controls though.

March 6, 2004, 7:19 pm
LOL It is the funneh! Soldiers jump like penguins

March 6, 2004, 7:31 pm
I don't understand what to do with the SoldatServer thing, do I extract it in to my Soldat folder and overwrite?

March 6, 2004, 8:12 pm
COOL! The first public version is back. I have to play it again to remember old great moments.

March 6, 2004, 9:37 pm

Soldat 0.9.4c has really bad network code based on DirectPlay. You can't play it on the internet, I tried only once and I got pings >1000ms. It should work on LAN though. I don't like this version, it's only fun killing bots with it. Barret overpowered? Check the M79 or the Minigun!

I still don't know what to do.

extreme minigun surfing :)

the jet sound is weird..

Edit: Hitman, I haven't downloaded the new one, but I think you just extract it to a new folder, it has everything you need to run a dedicated server.

YeOldeSoldat kicks ass. The minigun surfing kicks ass. Too bad there is no weapon interface pics.

March 7, 2004, 1:52 pm
i think i will give these a try, sounds fun :)

March 7, 2004, 2:38 pm
That's what I did, but when I tried and open the Soldatserver icon a little Dos window comes up and then nothing.

March 7, 2004, 3:35 pm
windows key+R
type 'cmd'
and start the soldatserver via DOS, then it won't close and you can see the error(s).

March 7, 2004, 5:50 pm
Errr, a Dos window came up and I don't know what to do next.

Something I forgot to mention for server admins: -> [URL]

Hitman: Just run it, if you get a DOS box that's it. Check the readme.txt attached to server.

March 7, 2004, 6:25 pm
Oh ok.

March 7, 2004, 6:27 pm
never used DOS before? shame on you! >:)

just create a file called "blah.bat" in the directory of the console server. Open it with notepad and write the following in it:
save it and run the file.

March 7, 2004, 6:40 pm
It still does not work.

..Meh, I give up. Thanks anyway.

March 7, 2004, 6:54 pm
Ah, I think I remember. You forgot to set the admin pass. Read the manual :)

March 7, 2004, 7:00 pm
Oh, ok

Edit: Yay, it works now. Thanks a lot (again) Boosta!

March 7, 2004, 10:47 pm
1. is there any way to change the controls?
2. i see the bow in the weapons folder, so how does one obtain it?
3. can you please post whatever the manual says in english?
4. why's the minigun been nerfed so much? it should be restored to the former glory(maybe not as much surfing, but the ammo and damage should be back)

Michal Marcinkowski
March 8, 2004, 3:01 pm
1. No
2. Ha! You reminded me of that. There's a cheat code: type "/bow"
3. The same as in the current manual, I can translate the non-standard controls:

[End] - grenade
[Delete] - throw weapon
[Page Down] - change weapon
[Home] - reload
[Space] - chat
[/] - command
[F1] - players list
[F3] - stats

4. As far as I remember it got nerfed when CTF appeared. It was too powerful for defence and surfing allowed you to easily steal the flag.

Michal you are not allowed to tell us cheats. :P

March 8, 2004, 5:42 pm
Hey, this was fixed sooner than I thought it would. I hope everything is working top-notch now. Server bugs were one of my biggest gripes with Soldat.

March 8, 2004, 11:38 pm
omg! michal respodend 100% to my post!!! im blesssed!!!
nother question: are there any other codes?(why no /limbo?)
i mean, it's ok if we know, because you cant play online, and it's easy to make the bots so they wont attack you.

change the bots you want in your team to have the friend "Alpha", and the name "Alpha". keep the file name the same. do this as many times, with as many different names as you want. that was you have teams that dont hurt each other!!! (name yourself the team you want to be on, so they dont kill you)

Yes, doing the dedicated server is like: 2 steps backwards, 3 forwards.
Oh and thanks to Styx, systemfiend and Roadkill for testing the server for me!

March 13, 2004, 4:17 pm
Cool, i will surely check this out

Holy crap you revived a thread that's been dead for a whole year....

April 6, 2005, 1:52 pm
Yeah, that's really annoying.

April 6, 2005, 3:39 pm
You guys are not helping by posting more (and forcing me into the thread)....I am going to start treating posts like the above as star hunting and will start handing out punishment for it.

In fact here's a 25% post fine for the pair of you as a warning.

(if anyone feels the need to post about this do so in the forum support section, do _not- use this thread)
