Fix your renegade server saying error assigning heartbeat list

Recommended Posts

Note:do this at your own risk and dont modify ANY other file not mentioned in this article


So you try and set up a gamespy renegade server but you see this 


then in your searchbar in the start menu or next to it type

notepad %systemroot%/system32/drivers/etc/hosts
right click notepad %systemroot%/system32/drivers/etc/hosts

and click run as administrator

and click yes on thebox that pops up

now copy this text (one line at a a time) below: master.gamespy.com master.udpsoft.com



and paste it into the file


the file should look something like this


now save the file and close the window


now type restart in the server console window and it should look like this now(you may have to restart your pc)


and if you look in renlist you should see your server


this proves i dont have to use brenbot for my server to work properly


why this works is because windows redirects it to which is renmaster.cncirc.net

every time it trys to access master.gamespy.com and master.udpsoft.com


NOTE:you may still have to forward ports such as 27900

NOTE: this should work with any FDS server

NOTE:This should work for any windows machine that can run a renegade server

      The following are GameSpy Master Servers hosted by MPF and C&C IRC.
      renmaster.cncirc.net renmaster-backup.cncirc.net  
      It is highly recommended that these be the only two servers in your servers configuration.
      In the event of a future outage of the master server, the backup will kick in to meet the needs of the Renegade community through RenList.
