New KPDEd2 File Released

has released a new KPDED2 file. This basically allows you to run dedicated public servers. In your server shortcut you just replace the kingpin.exe with the kpded2.exe.

KPDED2 fixes a number of bugs and security holes and also adds many new improvements.

The zipfile contains a very comprehensive readme which you will need to read and absorb all the information.

The readme does include some suggested Quick Start settings and most of the new default settings are fine so you wont need to change/add too many commands.

The main changes for me are:-

The allow_download_paks command means that clients are now able to download the client files for mods such as CTF and Power2 directly from the server. This is because these mods have their client files in PAK1 files.

You will also need the addcvarcheck command which adds a simple check for a client cvar. Checked when a client connects and when the 'checkcvars' command is used.

So if you run a CTF server you would need to add the line:-

addcvarcheck ctfver !* STUFF exec ctf.cfg

The allow_download_pics command allows the client to download levelshot pics directly from the server.

These commands are set to 1 by default so shouldn't need to be changed.

The set clientdir main command is for when running a mod that doesn't require any special client files (eg. PAKs), clients should be told to use their 'main' directory to avoid duplicate files in multiple directories.

Any changes you make need to be added to the relevant server.cfg file.

There are many other changes and improvements so make sure you read the readme :)

There are versions for both Windows and Linux:-

KPDED2 Windows

KPDED2 Linux

Just extract/unzip the file into your Kingpin folder.
