I tried to follow some guide written by Crazyivan that I found here, couldn't get past where it said to change the filename of of "il2server.exe" to "il2fb" (il2fb.exe?). I can't find a file called "il2server.exe" anywhere on my server system is why.

I searched around some more and found this GUI for running a server. Looks promising, are there any good guides out there to get me started using this program?

I have the dedicated server all ready to go with the dedicated server software loaded on it, ports open and missions present.

Thanks!

Thought I'd send this to the General Discussion forum also to get a few more eyes on it.

Hmm, I can't even find an .exe file in the software download for the dedicated server. How would you even start the dedicated server program? It appears to be a bunch of paintscemes?

What, exactly, did you download? The base dedicated server download (v2.04) is 410 megabytes. Then there are patches upon patches to install if you want to run a 4.08 server.

The default dedicated server excutable is, indeed, il2server.exe, and has to be renamed to il2fb.exe for Hyperlobby to find it.

You need to download the correct dedicated server files - including ALL the patches from 2.04 through 4.08. If you want to use the merged version of the dedicated server be sure that you choose patches with a 'm' in the name, like server407m.exe

The first first files to download and install are included in server version 2.04.

Read about patching here:

The 2.04 Dedicated Server folder will most likely have some corrupted files that can be fixed as described here:

Beware that the size of files are pretty big. My uncompressed 4.08m dedicated server folder is 2.29 GB in total.

Some links to server settings and commands can be found here:
