I've read CrazyIvans instructions for client side of server and it's working fine. I've clicked the link to Wild Honey and read those instuctions. For the sever side instructions, it says to type in the path to the server executable. What would that path be for the server executable? Does it have anything to do with HL since that is where I want to run the FBServer? A straight forward answer would work fine. But if there's anyway someone could provide some explanation about the path to the server executable, it will be much appreciated. I just want to learn and understand all I can. I'm always in a learning mode with this game and its aspects. Thanks a lot for anyones time for responses! S!

Forgot. I have another question. How do you get the dedicated server to work in HL? Do you launch the server before clicking on a slot in HL? Sry. I'm still new to hosting, especially with a dedicated server, separate application. Thanks again! S!

Just follow the instructions at
http://wildhoney.nightmail.ru/il2fb/

1. Rename "il2fb.exe" in IL-2 Forgotten Battles folder to something like "il2fb_start.exe".

2. Extract FBServer.exe from archive FBServer.zip into IL-2 Forgotten Battles folder, and rename it to "il2fb.exe".

3. Start FBServer.exe (the "il2fb.exe", you renamed in 2.).

4. Go to Options -> Preferences and set options here. On a server side, you will need to fill in path to server executable(="il2server.exe" within the IL2 FB Dedicated Server folder). When you are done quit the application, everything is setup now.

Steps 1-4 need to be done just once.

To host using the dedicated server just do the normal steps as usual in Hyperlobby (clicking on a slot in HL etc.). When you click "Start the game" in HL, FBServer is called which in turn launches the dedicated server. see also the dedi readme for info about server console commands, if you need them.

That's it.

To stop the dedicated server use the menu command "Stop server" in FBServer.

However, I have a problem with Win98me and the FBServer console, you will find a workaround here:
"IMPORTANT!!! IL2 DEDICATED Server. Server Side."
