    Hi,

    I am trying to setup a server on my own machine.
    Ports are forwarded 27270 – 27272 both UDT and UPS or something.
    The server is shown with the ip address in the server list but i can’t join nor will the servername show up.

    When looking at the cmd server window it keeps saying:

    Registration to scorched3d.sourceforge.net failed

    Why is that? and can you help me fix this.

    Cheers,

    T-Bone

    i put together a little port checking script for testing that stuff. here:
    http://fileanchor.co.uk/scorched3d/servertest/servertest.php

    start your server first, then go there and enter your port numbers. TCP is the number you chose when you started the server, UDP is that number +1. if you get a red light, there’s probably something up with your port forwarding or it’s getting blocked by a firewall.

    Now that is a handy tool mate.
    I forwarded the port correctly but the firewall was still blocking it.

    should work now got 2 green lights.

    thanks buddy.

    Ok that work good.

    Now i created the webbrowers admin thing.
    so other members can run be admin on the server.
    if i type in my ip and the portnumber i set as admin port it gives my the login screen….thats all good.

    no when i want to login in with the name and password i gave in the adminpassword-27270.xml file it doesn’t load the admin page. It just comes back with the login page. I created that file in the scorched3D root folder is that correct that is what i understood from the wiki.

    *****Update*****
    Never mind i found the location – in the user folder on the C:

    In the server xml youll find an option called:

    LimitPowerByHealth

    Type in on as the value and it will do as you wish. If you dont know what xml is i can send you a server file to use with this option enabled.

    They are correct.

    1. Using the GUI loader in Scorched.exe, it’s a check-box.

    or

    2. Editing your own Server.xml, locate the line
    LimitPowerByHealth: Show power is limited by the amount of health a player
    has. Default value : “on” .
    And make sure that following it, you Enter

    LimitPowerByHealth
    off

    or

    3. Using the Local or remote web-console, Enter the page under
    Settings > All Settings : and locate that same line LimitPowerByHealth

    And. Yes.. Any power you can perform locally on the web-consile, can be
    granted to a remote admin. You just have to add thier name to the
    AdminPasswords.xml file along with granting permissions to each area you wish.

    eg.
