Battlefield 1942 v1.612 Windows server patches

EA released yesterday Battlefield 1942 as a free digital download on Origin. They included a Windows dedicated server file, so anyone can run their own dedicated server. However, EA did not do their homework, the new server version can be remotely crashed by commands, such as, game.setTeam and game.createLocalPlayer. This patched server file is fixed against those 2 exploits. Download: http://team-simple.org/download/BF1942_ … atched.zip

Battlefield 1942 v1.612 server maximum players limit raised to 128. The patched server file is also fixed against the 2 public exploits. Included a patched DedicatedServer.exe so you can select easily up to 128 players. Download: http://team-simple.org/download/BF1942_ … layers.zip

Sorry for asking a possibly noobish question, but are the BFSM and BFRM

from post # 28 in this thread :

http://team-simple.org/forum/viewtopic.php?id=67

the proper ones to use with a 65+ player BF1942 Origin server, or have you made any later / "better" releases, Tuia ?

Re: Battlefield 1942 v1.612 Windows server patches

These BF1942 v1.612 Windows server executables display keyhashes, opposite to the server executable released with BF1942 Origin download.  Besides that, they include security fixes and maximum players limit raised. Read included .nfo file for details.

BF1942_w32ded-1.612-keyhash.zip, this only allows BF1942 v1.612 (Origin) players to connect to the server.

BF1942_w32ded-1.612-keyhash_all_clients.zip, accepts all BF1942 client versions - v1.6, v1.61 and v1.612.

Re: Battlefield 1942 v1.612 Windows server patches

First: Thank you a bunch for posting these somewhere people can actually get to them. Unlike certain BF2 modders...

Anyways I am having a crash on startup issue. I think it might be related to using the old BF1942 dedicated server and not the origin based installer. Any guesses or should I just bit the bullet and use the Origin installer?

Re: Battlefield 1942 v1.612 Windows server patches

You have to download BF1942 Server v1.6 and BF1942 Server Update v1.61 for Windows. Then, overwrite BF1942_w32ded.exe with the one from any of these packages above. You don't need to use BF1942 Origin installation and it's not recommended you do so, because of some mods (Desert Combat, Forgotten Hope, etc.) incompatibility with BF1942 Origin installation.

Re: Battlefield 1942 v1.612 Windows server patches

Is there a fix for linux? Is this a problem with the linux servers using the patch that allows 1.6/1.61/1.612?

Re: Battlefield 1942 v1.612 Windows server patches

There is no problem with Linux server binaries for v1.612. Only thing to address is blocking port 29910 to master.gamespy.com to show players keyhashes.
