Hi people!

I've set up a dedicated Hardcore COD4 server long time ago. It was for employees at Massive, but since we now have new firewalls and whatnot, we can no longer connect to the server I've setup. Therefore, I have now decided to let you guys connect and play instead. :)

It is set to Hardcore, which means that there are no UI-sights, no minimap etc (to make it more "real").

The gamemodes that are rotating are: Headquarters, Domination and Sabotage.

Since we all live in different timezones, I suggest that we plan ahead so we can enjoy as many players as possible.

How to find it?

Well, the easiest way to find it is to add a new favourite and add the following data:

IP: cageman.dyndns.org
Password (required when connecting to the server): lightwave

Please test this as soon as you can so you know that you can connect!

Lets talk about when we should play!!!

Cheers!

Love COD4, only ever play HC modes but only usually play Team Deathmatch, not very keen on the other modes although it might be a laugh. I'll have a look later when I get a chance.

Thanks Cageman.

BTW...pretty excited about the COD MW2...not long now....!

Oh yes! :)

Oh...and since this is a server for all of us LWavers, I think it can be changed to fit what most people want it to be like.

Wow! GREAT!! :) It's not a long way from Norway to Sweden, so I guess I'll be seeing you there, Cageman.

I haven't touched CoD4 much since CoD:WaW was released though, so this will for sure be interesting.. :D

@ gordonrobb, you cannot connect to a PC server with XBOX360. As far as I know. I think it would be unfair to the XBOX users as well. Gamebads vs. mouse is kind of crazy. :)

IMI
10-02-2009, 07:07 AM
Wow, I haven't played COD4 online in a long time, but I used to be really into it.
I'll install it and give it a try, but I don't think Punkbuster works with Windows 7. At least I think I read that somewhere anyway.
Since it's a private server, would you consider not using Punkbuster?

I'll test it out later today to see.

EDIT:
Headquarters, Domination and Sabotage were my favorite COD 4 games. Good choice there.

does this mean I'm going to have to get COD4 for my PC?
Ugh.

XBox playa here.
Player who's dying for COD MW2 to release at that.

Awesome, I loved COD4 MP, always seemed more balanced than other games (ill skillz required obviously!)

Now I just need to re-install the game! :)

See you online!

Cageman

This is a PC only server... sorry. :/

You should be able to connect with the adress provided: cageman.dyndns.org

I have been tinkering somewhat with my server today, rebooting it a couple of times, and that could very well be the issue.

Speaking of games, I've just seen Charlie Brooker's 'Gameswipe' on BBC iPlayer, absolutely brilliant and hilarious!

Definitely worth watching if you have access to iPlayer:

Aww crap, I can't get COD4 to run on Windows 7 again. I guess it was a patch lately to the RC that makes it funky. I had it running just a few weeks ago! :(

Cageman
10-02-2009, 01:22 PM
Important:

The server is updated with the some patches, so in order to see or connect to the server, you have to make sure to install the patches.

They can be found here! (ftp://LightWave:[email protected]:21/COD4_Patches/)

EDIT: Always check first if you can find and connect to the server before downloading the patches. :)

Well...at this stage I'm simply trying to gather some interrest and see if there are anyone that would be interrested to plan ahead so we can all enjoy killing eachother. :) Lets just see when people feel would be an appropriate date and time to do so, and you may find that you actually can participate. :)

Don't worry I'll jump on at some point , just a massive Fifa fan , I got a demo about 2 weeks ago and have been gaggin for the release date .

Well I have it reinstalling right now. Sucks though that I have to redownload the whole thing from Steam and it's going to take a good while, but I can't find my backup disks. Thankfully Steam doesn't have a limit on how many times you can redownload and install a game through them.
I'm not real confident I'm going to be able to connect though, based on all I've read about PB and Windows 7, but I'm gonna try at least.

What's up with those patches?

If the steam version is not updated to 1.7 then I believe those patches should work.

Punkbuster is disabled on this server since I also had problems with it.

Oh, cool. :)

Well it finished installing while I was out. I just got back home and figured I'd give it a try before I crashed for the night and it worked. I was able to get on the server and into a map at least.
Of course there was nobody else there, but at least it works. :)

I managed to get connected...turns out I'd copied down the address wrong:foreheads

I'm waiting for some files to download but might go on there in an hour or so if they've finished. I usually have a couple of games after my lunch, around 1-2 o'clock (UK time) so I might see some of you in there if you're free. :thumbsup:

IMI
10-03-2009, 07:10 AM
I was just there, running around the map.
By myself, of course, but I captured the Headquarters and managed to hold it. ;)

I'll check back every now and then throughout the day. If nothing else, maybe we can shoot each other for a little while. ;)

I'm on the east coast, US, GMT-4. Or is it GMT-5? I can't ever remember...

The timezone IS a downer, for sure... and above that, I'm a total looser when it comes to calculating that... so I apprichiate all help I can get on that subject.


http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html

That is a good start though. :)

I assume that weekends are the only time where everyone has the highest chance of being able to participate. My suggestion here is that we try to book a time for tomorrow (sunday), I would suggest 18.00/6pm, Swedish time.

What you do is you set the date and time (18/6pm), and convert from Sweden - Stockholm to whatever city or timezone you live in.

I've converted the Swedish time to UTC in this example. (http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converted.html?day=4&month=10&year=2009&hour=18&min=0&sec=0&p1=239&p2=0)

Does this sound like a good time?

EDIT: Here you can see what time that is all around the world (well, almost). (http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?year=2009&month=10&day=4&hour=16&min=0&sec=0)

I only usually play during the week as I play in the 'real world' at weekends but my girlfriend's away until Thursday so I should be free.

17:00 GMT tomorrow:thumbsup:

Cageman
10-03-2009, 10:30 AM
Some more info about the gameplay:

Hardcore
All perks and weapons are allowed (yes, even the Tube is allowed)
Running, Jumping etc is allowed
Custom-made classes are allowed

Voting is activated as well. Anyone can vote for Next Map, Previous Map as well as a Map+Game Mode (lets say you want to play Free for All on Backlot, you can setup such a vote and hope the majority vote Yes).

Depending on how people will feel about all this is something we have to evaluate after a game. After all, it is important that everyone has as much fun as possible. The reason I bring this up is because I used to play on a hardcore server where running and even walking was forbidden, only crouch was allowed. After a while they also disabled a bunch of perks as well as weapons (such as Last Stand and the Tube) and at that point, their way of gaming became too limited and the fun stopped (for me). I was OK with the rule of no running/walking.

Lets hope we are at least 6 people tomorrow, 3 in each team.

Oh, and of course, if you have a friend or two, don't hessitate to invite them as well.

IMI and I just had a one on one for a few games. Great fun, there were some classic moments like IMI falling into the missile launch tubes on one map, right where I was camping, just saw him disappear!

Then another when we were having a grenade throwing competition over a flag, mine hit the wall in front of me and blew up the cars nearby, killing me.

I thought I was FRAPS recording all of this but for some reason there were no movies when I looked.

:(

Anyway, we need more people!

Oh, and make sure you use your name on the forum as your 'tag', it's so much more fun when you know who you've just bagged!

:D

IMI
10-03-2009, 03:33 PM
Yeah, that was alot of fun!
Matt and I played for about an hour, and Matt mostly kicked my @ss. :D
I had forgotten how much fun COD4 online was! I was real into it about a year and a half ago and even joined a clan, playing Tactical, but I drifted out of it and haven't played it in a long time until today.
Out of practice now. ;)

Too bad about the FRAPS, Matt, I was hoping to see that. I'm sure there will be other opportunities though. ;)

I'll be checking back later, regularly, and for the rest of the weekend too.
It would be cool to maybe see how many people are interested, and try to set up a time.

Cageman

Yes... 6PM Stockholm time is translated to all kinds of timezones through this link: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?year=2009&month=10&day=4&hour=16&min=0&sec=0

If you look up Stockholm, it says 18.00 (6PM) and that time specific time is also, as you notice, translated to many places around the world.

A really handy website that one!

Well, it looks like the LW COD server is a bit of a winner!

Myself, Cageman, IMI and Matt have been playing for the past couple of hours and I've not laughed so much in ages...it was mostly hysterical laughter as I ran around the maps slaughtering everyone in a maniacal killing frenzy but I also occassionally laughed at my own misfortune because I knew that I would soon respawn to dominate the map once again...mwahahahaha!:2guns:

Only joking, I think that the games were fairly even on the whole although I could picture Matt's veins bulging out of his neck and smashing the keyboard in a frenzy on a couple of occassions.

Unfortunately my left hand now resembles an arthritic crab claw so I had to bail out but it was a great way to spend a Sunday evening and I can't wait for the next one.:thumbsup:

Thanks again Cageman, hopefully we can get some more to join up. Maybe ask on the CGTalk Lightwave forum and Spinquad?

IMI
10-04-2009, 12:47 PM
Cageman, billuousfrog, Matt and I played for about 2 and a half hours, and it was great fun!

Where are all the rest of you who seemed interested? ;)

And thanks again to Cageman for setting up that server for us. :)

Cageman
10-04-2009, 12:57 PM
Hey, Me, IMI, biliousfrog and Matt were playing for about 2 hours and 30 minutes. Matt was also frapsing some stuff, so hopefully there will be some moments to share with the rest of you.

Oh, and on the note of other forums, I did post about this at SpinQuad... roughly two hours prior to the first game today, so I think it was little too close for those that my have COD4 but require to reinstall it. :)

As fun as it is, it would be alot more fun if more people would join, so come on you guys!

:)

EDIT:

Ohh...and I had invited two of my coworkers, but one of them ended up having to help his mother with the computer and the other one seemed to have issues connecting to the server. So, again, if you know some people that play COD4, make sure to invite them as well!

Matt
10-04-2009, 01:07 PM
That was great fun, except when all of you lot had those killing sprees! I was shouting all sorts of obscenities at you all!

:D

Funny moment for me, after being mullered by cageman on the previous map, I took my revenge on the roof in that Christmas map. I had the bomb, and I could hear someone coming up the stairs, so I randomly lobbed a grenade down to find cageman's name come up on my kill! Oh how I laughed with glee! :D

Checking out the FRAPS recordings now for some nice gameplay.

Yeah, but those of us who were there would know better. ;)

:D

I did wonder whether there was some clever editing taking place at the start of the video :D

I've just had a look at fraps, I might buy it as it's quite cheap, I'm just concerned about the space that it will take up when capturing. Does it default to the playing screen size or can you capture at a lower res?...and what format?...there doesn't seem to be a lot of info on the website.

I don't have it installed right now and haven't used it in a while, but IIRC, you can choose to capture at half your screen size, and maybe 25% too. Not sure about the 25% though.
And yeah, the files can get *quite* large, as it saves them out as .avi.
Of course, it uses hotkeys to record or stop recording, so you can instantly stop one and start another one to make smaller files and make it easier for editing. And you can also assign whatever keys you want for video recording as well as still screenshots.
And you can also select what folder the videos get saved to.

Matt
10-05-2009, 10:23 AM
You can reduce down 50% and the file format is AVI uncompressed, so the files are MASSIVE, for example, last nights recordings (granted, I was recording a lot of running around with not much happening) totally around 80GB!!!

Might do some tests with this which I bought a while ago: http://www.zdsoft.com/

You can reduce down 50% and the file format is AVI uncompressed, so the files are MASSIVE, for example, last nights recordings (granted, I was recording a lot of running around with not much happening) totally around 80GB!!!

Might do some tests with this which I bought a while ago: http://www.zdsoft.com/

LOL 80 gig try www.fraps.com smaller file sizes and compression seems to handle better for me personally .


80 gig PMSL i could image the shock when you looked at your drive space ............

hmm...I got it and tried it out...it seems to kill the frame rate significantly, I was getting loads of lagging and stuttering. Also no sound for some reason but it was only picking up my external recording card rather than the onboard so that might be why. I also got kicked from every server when it was running which was annoying although I was only testing it out.

Hopefully I'll be able to swap over to my i7 box once this project is out of the way and things will be much faster...then you'll be in trouble!

Yep, FRAPS doesn't compress (actually it does very minimal, but nothing aggressive).

I recorded the entire "Mile High Club" segment of COD4, which is part of Arcade mode, at half screen, with all settings maxed out in COD4.
My screen size is set to full, 1920x1200, and I use V-sync. I set FRAPS to record @ 30 FPS and I did get a solid 30 FPS all through the 2 or so minutes of game play.
No lag whatsoever, but then again I have a GTX 285 in my gaming box.

The file was about 1.5 GB or so as an uncompressed .avi file, which I managed to whittle down to a 30 MB .mov file with really nice quality @ 30 FPS, using Camtasia Studio.

You may need to update Punkbuster manually, I was getting a kicked message too, although, I've not tried since I updated PB.

IMI
10-05-2009, 04:42 PM
I actually managed to get Punkbuster to work finally, and in Windows 7 no less.
I was taking it for granted that Steam would automatically give me the correct and latest version of PB, but not so. Steam's PB as it turns out is several versions behind so I had to download the latest PBsetup.exe from evenbalance, then run it, then add COD4 to the list and finally highlight COD4 in the list and run a check for updates.
It was PB then that got updated, not COD4, and I can actually play online now again, on PB-enabled servers.

So watch out. I'm gonna be back in practice again for our next match. :devil: :D

IMI
10-09-2009, 05:04 PM
Sunday sounds good to me. Any time, really. Since my ball and chain will be gone all day I can do whatever I want. :D
So whatever time you all decide on I'll be there ready to shoot you up. ;)

Edit:
I've been on and off all week. Every time I check the server, nobody is there.
Surely out of all of us wavers here there must be more than just us four or five who play COD 4 online.

I get that with any new game too...it's almost like that scene in The Beach where Leonardo DiCaprio is running around the forest as a game character.

I doubt I can make it on Sunday, if I can I'll probably have a serious hangover and I doubt that playing COD will help but I might be able to spectate and fraps some of it...if I can figure out how to move around in spectate mode.

Cageman, I don't know how the spectate is set up but wondered whether you'd consider setting it up to 'spectate all' so that I can fraps some of the next game if I'm available. I'm not sure whether it allows free roaming but it does allow spectators to view any player rather than just thier own team. Obviously it could have implications when the server becomes more busy but I doubt that anyone is going to abuse it.

For all the COD4 servers there are out there still, it amazes me how difficult it is to find a good game. If I had to gauge society as a whole against the conduct of the average COD 4 online game player, I'd say the world is an immature crybaby jerk. ;)

I was just there, playing Domination on the Pipeline map.

Even though I was the only player, it was rough. I did manage to capture and hold all three flags though.

And I would have won too, but this abandoned car gave me some sh1t and I had to kill it. That unnerved me so much that I dropped a grenade and killed myself.

Next time though, watch out - no more Mr. Nice Guy, and I'm out for revenge. ;)

I tried some recording tests on the server last night in spectator mode using both FRAPS and ZDSoft's Screen Recorder (formerly Game Recorder) and the FPS was lousy.

Same settings when 'in-game' was fine, so I'm not sure how great any spectator videos will be now.

Sorry guys, a mate came over.

I was actually jumping on and off the server waiting for a while, checking, around 6-7pm GMT but no one was there.

I also had to be up early on Monday so playing later in the evening on Sunday isn't the best for me, as it leaves my brain in overdrive!

Any chance we could make it Sunday afternoons? That would be awesome then!

This week might be difficult too, as I have a different friend wanting to talk about their website coming over, just not sure which day.

yeah I used fraps, it seemed to be quite smooth in spectate although it was really jerky in normal mode.

I really liked watching them play, it's funny to see them getting so close without realising and being really sneaky whilst nowhere near each other. It would be easier with more players though, I sometimes found myself flying around the map looking for some action only to miss it. I'm quite happy to film in spectate if there's an odd number of players, it was lots of fun.

I'm happy to show people around the maps too if they're not familiar with any of them, especially as 4 new ones were added with the 1.6 update. There's some nice little hiding places and climbing areas that some people don't know about or can't seem to get to grips with too...they're not as important with only a few people playing sabotage or domination but can make a difference with bigger games...sniping from the rocket launchers on countdown is always funny

Chinatown is just a rehash of Carentan from COD and COD2...I don't mind it but it's not as good as the original maps.

Have there been any third party maps for COD4?...there were some amazing ones for the first two games, I was in charge of finding them for the lunchtime LAN game at work. Actually some of the old maps from COD2 would be fun to play.

I used to play regularly on a tactical server about a year and a half ago that used several really cool modded maps. A few of them were sort of weird, but there were a couple that I thought were really good, and they were all available for public download too.
Unfortunately I lost all those maps somewhere along the way, and can't remember where they came from now.
I can't remember what the COD 4 mod tool was called now, but I wanted to try it out, though I was running Vista and it said it only worked in XP, so I never tried it. Don't know if that's changed any, but I doubt it.

Hi guys!

I can change the COD4 server so that we also have third party maps. I used to play on the same tactical server as IMI, so I have those maps and also configured the server to include them if I start the server via another shortcut.

Be warned:

Make sure you guys create a new profile in COD4 and use that since these new maps changes COD4 somewhat and you will risk loosing your ranks and other things. I will not change the server yet, but if you want, I can do that in a couple of moseclicks. The new maps will be downloaded automaticly to your COD4 installation when such a map is loaded on the server. The server will not change for tonights game.

Just out of curiosity.
Anyone here plays Americas Army?
I know i know... propaganda game...
But still, it's there. And for me it's very good game. It's slow paced but it's a nice simulation.
You can bleed to death, many options for grenades. Report enemies in the map. Bipods. Gun jams... etc
There's always an objective and its always teams.

There's version 2 and version 3
Difference is that 2 gives individual player more power.
In 3 it's the weapon shakes crazy; theres a lot of fog, you cant jump, only mantle over objects; when you kill someone you don't get a death message, so if you kill someone at distance you can't be sure you shot him. And so on... It's more of a hardcore teamplay game or you will die quick.

I've played Cod4. Preety game. But with me its Quake3 jumpings pads, or realism nerdyness. Whatever is in between tryng to look realistic, but with guys jumping and shooting doesnt work so well :P

If that's the case, I can definitely make it.

As for the modded maps, sounds like a great idea, and I'm glad you still have those! I looked all over, hoping I had burned then to a CD, but no dice.
I'm not sure what you mean about having to create a new profile for them though. I don't think I had to do that before, but I can't really remember now.

That's funny, I remember going to a print shop with an urgent job, and the guy was playing 'Marathon' on the Mac (this was a long time ago).

Not particularly happy with his lack of urgency I mentioned it to my boss, who mentioned it to the print guy's boss, who responded saying that they occasionally do 'testing' for games!

HA!

The fact they thought they could use that as an excuse was quite unbelievable. They eventually they went bust. Wonder why!

Well yeah, I've seen the chart, several times now. That's not the problem. I know how to find out what time it is anywhere in the world compared to mine easily enough. And I've known how to do that for several years. ;)
The thing is, as far as I can tell, I didn't notice you actually saying *what* time the game is in *any* time zone. ;)

EDIT:
OH... I get it now. No, I didn't read the chart because I thought it was a simple time conversion chart, but that's actually a chart you made... or rather made a link to using that site's software.
See, this is why I also had to ask you to confirm the game time last time, because I wasn't using your chart, just using the fact I know you're six hours ahead of my time. ;)

Hi guys!

Since there were so few of us (well, one new face, Radek), I removed the password. We were, at times, 12 people playing (Me, IMI, Radek + a bunch of random Internet-dudes). So, from now on, the server will be open, but when we do our LW-games, the server will require the password.

I also noticed that some people were apparently using cheats (No Punkbuster activated on the server), so I may actually enable that, I just have to make sure I update it constantly and that you guys install it.

Let me know if you run into any problems with PB (I will have it up and running later tonight).

Anyhow... I didn't do any frapsing this time around (I still have about 30GB of fraps from the second session to go through).

:)

The internet dudes were cheating?
There were a few times I wondered about that. Like this one time I unloaded an entire clip in this guy from about 20 feet away and it didn't kill him, plus a few other weird things I saw.

Punkbuster is fine with me. As I wrote a few pages back, I even got it working with Windows 7, which they say shouldn't be possible, but it's working just fine for me now.

OTOH, when it's a closed game for just 'wavers, if there are people having troubles with PB, I would think you could disable PB.

Yes... I have already created two distinct shortcuts; one to fire up the official server (Punkbuster, limited to only spectate team-members and no password) and our private server (no Punkbuster, free spectator mode and password protected).

Switching server is a matter of 1 single click (close the one currently running) and a double-click (start the other one).

Best thing you could do really is go into Spectate mode and "fly" around the maps as they load, before game time.

IMI
10-17-2009, 09:59 AM
Another thing you could do is go into the Multiplayer options and set up your own server on your own machine. There's nothing to that and you can make it private so nobody comes along. Just select the maps and set a time limit for each and wander through them at your leisure, on your own machine, not really connected to a server.
That way you don't have to wait for an external server to load maps, and you can do whatever you want, spend as much time on each as you want.
Or you could just set each one up manually, as opposed to being in a rotation, just by exiting the map you're on and loading a new one.

If you do, make sure you install the latest Punkbuster from evenbalance.com after you install COD 4, and run the updater and add COD 4 to the list and run the check for updates thing. Works for me, but I've read of quite a few people saying they can't get it to work under Windows 7.

Then again, I think Cageman planned to turn off PB for when it's just us, but I think last time it was still turned on.
