Heroes of the West Map Update



  • I was not aware of that that you can blow up the wire with grenades

  • So the server's unranked. Meaning nobody can see it unless something happens to drive them to look at the unranked section.

    Maybe you should set up your platoon server with heroes of the west. As it's rather easy to set up and it means you won't screw up your public HOTW server. Very easy to transition as well. Once it's installed it's simply a case of changing maps in the config for whatever theatre of war you want to play.

  • This was not due to our private mutators but because the startup commandline was telling the server to go to a WF map on start/restart. We'd obviously want the server to automatically go to a WF map should it crash or restart, however it does not seem feasible as it sets the server unranked.

    This has been redeemed and the server is now ranked again.

  • That's up to TWI to fix that. The game goes "wtf is this WF map" when it sees the command line so makes it unranked. As TWI are pretty strict when it comes to ranking servers. Helps with boosters though.

  • Coming soon.

  • Just bumping this as it looks like the server is still running the old version of Brest.

    New version here: https://s3.amazonaws.com/redorchestra2/Port_Brest/WF-PortBrestB5.roe

  • Still running the old version. I thought you guys had tons of admins.

    Hey guys. It's the 18th. Still nothing.

    Capt Cranston is dead or something. He's not gonna update the server so someone else will have to do it. I get the feeling that people with access are simply relying on others to do it. Yeah it's supposed to be Cranstons job but he ain't doing his job.

  • I'll look into this.

  • edited January 2016


    And btw this WIP pic.

    Edit: Just noticed it was the wrong way round lol. Is fixed now but not the image.

  • Port Brest was updated on the server

  • Thanks, a new map was released today by PsychoPigeon, WF-Carentan
