Emulator Nexus BFBC2
« on: November 08, 2012, 12:09:24 am »
As some of you may be aware, the server files for BFBC2 have been available for quite some time now. Now however, there is a full scale project going on to make the game free to run and play  on your own server, or other peoples servers. Gratis. Lately me and Robba have been messing about getting a server up and running on here, just to test it and mess about. Granted, it is nowhere near the official server standard, and is not a patch on the actual real server we have running, but it is fun none the less.

Mostly we are messing about putting in ridiculous commands, like removing the out of bounds areas, making the maps as big as they were intended to be, before DICE went meddling. This is just the tip of the iceberg however, as things like infinite ammo etc etc are available too. If anyone would like to come have a mess about and explore the maps, its fairly simple and none threatening to your official game to do so.

Firstly, you must make an account on the nexus forum here it is best if the username you use, matches the username of your soldier in game, its just less complicated, and there are some issues with different names for a small portion of people connecting. Confirm your email and all that good stuff.

Second, you d/l one small file from here all you have to do is place this in your bfbc2 game folder, where the BFBC2.exe file resides. Then, instead of connecting to EA servers, you connect to Nexus ones instead. Dead easy. (Should you wish to return to the official servers, all you need do is delete, move, or rename this file in the folder, and you will be back on EA servers)

After this, load up the game as usual, (make sure auto login is unchecked before you try this) and on the login screen you should see it say on the login box nexus, not ea. use your forum name and login password as the details. Next, create a new soldier, name same as your login preferably, and you search servers. All the ones in the list are unofficial ones. Ours keeps changing name right now, but up to the minute, its called ||UK||mixed map/no bound/inf.ammo. connect and you're in. every map is borderless, can explore to your hearts content, and inf ammo on all weapons (especially funny on tanks and the uav hellfires). We will post vids of the stuff in there for those who wanna see it etc.

Better mod tools are out
http://www.bfeditor.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=15783

we might be able to run a full 32 (or more) server should there be enough interest

hurrah. I can probably run this better as well now on my new connection when i get it, unless you have a way of running it yourself now through summink or other. Good news that its getting some love again though.

I can't download them new modtools, getting a 403 on that.

our connections should support 20 or so players, to progress from that, we need to see how small we can make the server package.
