1 - beginner Replace GDI Sniper with Logan ServerSide

Recommended Posts

Always wanted to have this special feature on your server where players can buy a Logan instead of a default Sniper on GDI?

This tutorial explains how to do just that. Of course you can apply this knowledge to any other character in the purchase menu as well.

First of all open your LevelEditor :durr: and then expand the category (1)"Global Settings", then expand (2)"Purchase Settings" and click on the "Character Classes (GDI)" and finally click on the (3)"Mod" button at the bottom of your LevelEditor:

Once done, you are presented with a mod edit screen like the image below.

First click on the "Settings" tab and then scroll down until you see "Entry 4" which is for the Sniper on GDI.

It has a weird name, blame Westwood for that lol. Click on the little colorful button at the right which i labeled a blue "1".

Then proceed and click the "+" in front of the presetname "CnC_GDI_MiniGunner_2SF", a new entry lists with "_Logan" added to it. Select that preset at the blue "2".

Now press OK and you're done.

Save the presets by exiting the LevelEditor and choosing Yes when it asks to save the presets.

Then goto your presets folder and rename objects.ddb to objects.aow and load that in your tt.cfg of your server.

Example tt.cfg to load a custom modded objects.aow file:

gameDefinitions:{	Field:	{		mapName = "C&C_Field";		serverPresetsFile = "objects.aow";	};};rotation:[	"Field"];downloader:{	repositoryUrl = "http://ttfs.ultraaow.com/";};
Now when you start your server players who buy the GDI Sniper will actually get the GDI Logan to snipe with.

      This package contains everything you need to get a server going.
      When you downloaded the zip file make sure that you goto its properties and "Unblock" it BEFORE you extract the files, else it may not function correctly.
       
      There is a folder called "prerequisites" and you must run and install the vcredist_x86_2012.exe and vcredist_x86_2013.exe and also the dxsetup.exe found in the dxsetup folder or your server will not run.
       
      Make sure you edit server.ini and change ports where needed and forward them if applicable. Note that the GameSpyQueryPort *must* be different from what you set in DA.ini
      Also edit the svrcfg_cnc.ini found in the data folder to set your own server name, title, and maybe some other options.
       
      Brenbot is included in this zip and works 'out of the box' pretty much.
      You should however change the nickname of the bot to use on IRC, the channels it will join and the Path to your Server root folder.
      See moderators.cfg for help adding moderators.
      The FIRST message listed in messages.cfg is what will be displayed when players type !rules in your server. Keep it very short as there is a ~200 character limit on lines.
       
      I've included an example configuration of the tt.cfg file that now handles the server map rotation and downloader properties.
      It's pretty straigthforward, just upload your ttfs folder to your website and set the repositoryUrl to it ending with a /
      eg: repositoryUrl = "http://www.yourwebsite.com/ttfs/";
      A note: When you use the packageeditor cmdline to install or convert new maps or packages make sure the Server is NOT running.
       
      If you've adjusted your configuration files and are ready to run it, then execute the file server.exe followed by brenbot.exe
      Always start the server first, then brenbot.
       
      The sourcecode based on Dragonade 1.92 with TT 4.6 support is included and contains a nice mpf_example to get going.
      You need both Visual Studio 2012 and Visual Studio 2015 installed. You can get VS2015 Community Edition off Microsoft's website. However, there is no community edition for VS2012.
       
      For help adding custom maps and/or other things to your server please join us on our irc.cncirc.net in channel #mpf
      It is recommended to join us on Discord with a microphone as it is a lot easier to help then. Perhaps also get Teamviewer, we use that a lot and makes it tenfold easier to help remotely with issues you may have. ( www.teamviewer.com )

      There is going to be a weekend tribute of sorts event held on the "zunnies OmegaAOW" renegade server.

      It is an old server mod that zunnie and his friends used to work on. Because of how old it is there may be some small bugs to live with, but @shaitan and I have done what we can to get it ready.
      During this time Newmaps,MutantCo-op and possibly other servers will be taken offline.
       
       
      IRC: irc.cncirc.net -or- irc.rencorner.com channel: #OmegaAOW

      To get passed the WOL installation for the RenegadeFDS you need to enter a (fake) serial number that starts
      with 0669. For example: 0669714956637887900319 (Note: This is a fake serial and you cannot host a server in
      XWIS/WOL mode with this serial, it is only provided for you so you can get passed the installation dialogs.)
      To host a server on XWIS enter your Renegade serial in server.ini
      After installation it is highly recommended to upgrade to TT SSGM 4.x.
      Click the links below to view detailed instructions on how to set that up:
      SSGM 4.x Download Page
       
      You can now also download an all up2date package with Dragonade 1.92 and TT 4.6 support, source code and brenbot included @

      Place the obelisk controller like this on the Obelisk in your map:

       
       
      Goto the properties of the obelisk controller and substract 41 from the Z value, enter the new value in the Z box and press OK.
      In this example:
      Old Value = 28.009
      Substract - 41.000
      New Value = 12.991

       
       
      The controller will jump underneith the map, this is fine, and supposed to happen.

       
      Now when you play your map the obelisk will fire from the red top.
