Problems setting up a server

hi all

iv recently tried to set up a thievery server but i having a couple of problems.

First problem is the map vote, iv download it from the thievery customs center and put it in the system folder but when iv tested it on my lan server only the server pc can vote, the vote screen doesnot appear on the second pc, does anyone know what could be causing this?

Second Problem is the patch, iv downloaded the 1.51 patch and put it in the system folder but on the server screen on my second pc it says its still 1.5 and not 1.51, does anyone know why?

thanks

Have you added it to the server packages list in ThieveryMod.ini?

To get it to say 1.51 on the server screen you need the patch on the second computer as well. The version number that gets listed is really the client's version and not the server's version.

thanks sneaky but its not that. . on the second pc when i play online all the servers are 1.51, its just my server that is not.

one more thing, my server iv put online appears on the thievery section of the server screen on the server pc, but not on the second PC. it only appears on the lan section, is this because its only suposed to appear on lan as its on the network, and carnt be on both?

just extract the patch zip to your UT folder and 1.5 is suddenly 1.51 ^^

now i know this is bumping a somewhat very old thread... my first post actualy if i remember rightly but its on the same subject and it is my thread

iv having trouble with thievery server again i cannot start a dedicated thievery game, it simply crashes tut.. no error, i just click on dedicated, and i get a black screen for a sec, and back to windows.. it used to work fine but i havent touched it in a while.. i can run a non dedicated server fine, people can see and join it.. (took awhile to see it tho) i can run sp fine as well but not dedicated i was gona try full reinstall as it could prob do with it anyway.. but just wanted to see if anyone has ever come acros or heard about this prob b4?

thanks in advance to any who reply

if you saw the little black screen come up and dissapear right after, it may be due to a missing package of some sorts


either way, if the black screen briefly showed then it also wrote to the log file, so check ucc.log and see whats at the end of it, paste it here too if you want ;P

thanks but i got it sorted anyway, i reinstalled ut and tut, i was still running TUT 1.51 so it needed somthing doing to it ^^ after full reinstall it works perfectly fine tho.. so i can only guess it was one of chiefs mutator files that messed it up ^^

noooo, dont use any patch for thievery! 1.6 full only! 1.51 is an eariler patch for the game version 1.5 for thievery get, (same as 1.5, 1.4, 1.3 etc) 1.6 atm is all you need. dont bother with anyother install/patch (unless u want to set up a 1.somthing server but people wont play as they all have 1.6 so files would be mismatched)
