hello crazyivan1970,
I followed your instructions but can't seem to join a dedicated server game.The hyperlobby window shrinks to the task bar, my disk drive runs, the initial game start up picture comes up then nothing. The game will not start.When I check the task manager I have Hyperlobby running, aping running and nothing else.
I noticed that in the fbserver.exe (now renamed to il2fb.exe) that the bit that says enable remote console on port was showing 22000. I changed this to 21000 as per by il2setup.exe but no difference.I also tried with enable remote console ticked and unticked all with the same result.

I have also just noticed if I double click the fbserver.exe once the game has tried to start I get a message saying "failed to bind console to port"

Any help would be appreciated as this is starting to bug me.

Hello
So after reading this below it sounds like you don't have it right yet. I say this because you failed to mention after clicking hyper to join that FBserver came up briefly after hyper minimizes. I would say you have failed to direct Hyper to the FBserver.exe that was renamed to il2fb.exe.

He's probably not on Ivan I found this 3 pages back already.

By the way enjoyed meeting you and Hunter on TS the other night. We'll have to get together again. Also glad Hunter got his to working. So I still haven't figured out how to make mine change maps with FBD posted over on their forum about it and scared them all away. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif no replies.LOL

I'm at work so I can't help any more other than this medium
Do you think I was on the right track?

I removed the files and tried again. I downloaded Wildhoneys version then downloaded fb_launcher_no_close and followed the instructions and ovewrote as per the instructions.
Hyperlobby shrinks to the task bar when I try to join a session I now get the Fblauncher window up and I direct it to the game il2fb.exe (not the fblauncher that has been renamed to il2fb.exe)
The game window starts as before but then nothing and the file il2fb.exe(the fblauncher.exe) stops responding.

Any thoughts guys.

Thanks.

Man I am starting to feel like a complete moron.

Still can't get it to work. Here's what I did.
Deleted the launcher files and directory and used Regcleaner to remove any trace of the files.

Re-booted

Downloaded the FBserver.zip from www.rmutt.netfirms (http://www.rmutt.netfirms) per the link you posted.

Made new folder called FBserver and extracted the file into it. The file is 201Kb right?

Opened the file and directed the game path to il2fb.exe in my forgotten battles folder.

Renamed FBserver.exe to il2fb.exe

Started Hyperloby.

Cntrl/Shift/connect and directed Hyperlobby to the il2fb.exe in the FBserver directory.

Tried to join a FBserver needed game.

Hyperlobby shrinks to taskbar and initial game window comes up (you know the one with the plane flying over lenningrad) then dissapears.

Then nothing (FBserver not responding)

Tried 4 or 5 times always the same.

I then noticed that in the Fbserver folder every time I try to join a game it makes a new Conf.ini file.
In this file it appears to give me the remote host IP address (I assume this is the IP address of the server because when I tried the same server after a different one I got the same IP address.) I then tried to join using this IP address but I get the same effect.Initial game window starts then nothing then fbserver stops responding.

I'm on the outside looking in and it's very lonely out here.
Despair! thunderclouds! rain! woe is me!
I'm cracking up here!

Any ideas.
Thanks

Ah ha!
Now I think I might be screwed!

A few weeks back I tried to join a game thru ubisofts website but it told me I did not have their software loaded and I tried to download it there and then.
When it downloaded it would not install as it said there was a previous version installed already.
I then tried to install it from the disk, again it said that it was already installed.(It will not go any further than that ie. I don't get the option to repair, re-install etc.)
I then thought I'll un-install it then re-install.
Went to add/remove programmes and tried to remove Ubi.com but it will not let me it says there is some file missing could not uninstall.

Question: do you need the Ubi.com software to run on hyperlobby? because I can join hyperlobby the normal way.
Also if I need to switch off ubi.com how do I do that?

Thanks again guys.

No UBI is not needed for normal Hyper lobbie. But it is required to play on Dedicated servers on Hyper.

Let me look there was a thread in tech to get rid of UBI completely.

*AKD descends from the clouds bathed in glorious light*

I come bearing mana from the heavens johnbn. I too wandered in the wilderness for many days, thinking myself forsaken, but, lo!, in the hour of my greatest darkness, did the Great One speak to me; and he did say, "taketh this "uninstall.reg" and apply it unto the evil doer so that it might be cleansed." And cleanse I did, only to find a new world before my eyes, and verily I did know then that in the future my life would new and fresh, and that I had but one true calling: a "dedicated server" of the one true God.

Send me a "private message" and I shall pass unto you gifts from the great god Ubi, so that you too might follow the path of dedicated serverdom.

Thanks for the info AKD.
How do I send you a "private maessage"?
I found a thread on unistalling ubi.com on the tech support forum so I'll try and get it from customer support.

Thanks for the help guys.
The problem was my ubi.com gameservice.
The uninstall file worked a treat thanks AKD
I can now enjoy dedicated servers and everyone is right it is much smoother when I get shot out of the sky and crash and burn!
