Server Messages

Post by Funkey » Mon Dec 31, 2018 2:58 am

I'm playing around with running an Unreal dedicated server. I see many servers have messages that cycle through in the upper left, in white with a new message every couple minutes. You know stuff like "visit our website..." or "to email us..." Is it built into into 227, or is it a mutator? I've searched the various old unreal sites and I can't find anything on it. If it's built into unreal, how do I enable it, .ini, create another file in system, etc...?

hi Funkey, there are 2 ways to add those server-messages:

a) Engine.GameReplicationInfo:
when running the unreal-server, your Unreal.ini should contain this section:

Code: Select all

[Engine.GameReplicationInfo]
ServerName=
ShortName=
AdminName=
AdminEmail=
Region=3
ShowMOTD=TRUE
MOTDLine1=
MOTDLine2=
MOTDLine3=
MOTDLine4=
just fill in your data. the MOTDLines can be used for additional information.


b) SPServerAdds-Mod
you just need to extract the archive attached to this message and copy the file SPServerAdds.u into the system-folder of your unreal-server.
then you need to edit Unreal.ini of your unreal-server:

add this line to the section [Engine.GameEngine]

Code: Select all

ServerActors=SPServerAdds.ServerAdds
when you run your server, a new section [SPServerAdds.ServerAdds] should be added to your Unreal.ini containing this code:

Code: Select all

[SPServerAdds.ServerAdds]
fDelay=120
IREPEAT=1
iGroupSize=1
iAddType=3
bDontWrapList=False
sLines[0]=
sLines[1]=
sLines[2]=
sLines[3]=
sLines[4]=
sLines[5]=
sLines[6]=
sLines[7]=
sLines[8]=
use the sLines for your server-messages...

hope that helps.
