    IP Config Help

    Hi, I just had a few questions regarding the running of a server on my own computer. My first question is this : Is it possible to maintain a server with a dynamic external IP with or without the use of additional software such as Hamachi, etc, etc? If not, how does one get around the limitations of IPv4 without purchasing a static IP adress? The main thing I want to do is simply host a server that runs 24/7 and works. My external IP likes to change 2-3 times a day, I assume that when your external IP changes it makes the saved server unavailable due to the change in IP. How can I host a server from my spare computer with a 24/7 uptime that doesn't screw up the other clients' and the map save? I appreciate any input.
  2. Hey, So sometime in the last two days me and my friends server stopped working. We've been playing on it for months then today it just stopped working. Noticed when I try to connect I get the following "[ZNet JNI] Java_zombie_core_raknet_RakNetPeerInterface_Connect Reminder: This non-steam client can only connect to non-Steam servers." Only thing I can think of that's different is he had steam update on him today, but we launch the game with -nosteam parameter set. Edit: Resolved the problem, turned out to be that my friends IPv4 address changed (currently not sure what causes a change in IPv4) so we had to change the IP address for port forwarding / project Z. On that note once you do that the hosts character won't be available unless you find your character file and alter the ip address on the name of the folder to your new IPv4 address.
  3. Alright, I lied in my last post, I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get mods working on a steam server. Please. Help. Also, I cannot figure out how to administrate the server, editing zombies and such.
  4. Hello everyone! I'm just gonna start off by saying I love the game. Had a little trouble hosting a server, but finally got it all working properly... or at least so I thought. Just to clarify I downloaded all the necassary steam files to host a steam server. I port forwarded correctly with available slots for 4 people. I can play both online with my friend at his house and lan. Before I start the server I start from scratch by going to the serversettings.exe in the Project Zomboid install directory. Once I have adjusted the server settings for my server I go to the file where I installed the steam server update to launch my server. Once I launched it once it creates the testserver.ini file which I edit to set a spawn point. I launch the server again and start zomboid. I log in fine, create my character, my friend joins, but the serversettings don't seem to have an effect. Even if I adjust the erosion to be at the fastest level and start 8 months into the apocalypse, no grass growing the street or vines growing on buildings. This works in the singleplayer when I do this, but not online. To make it even more weird, I tested it once by setting the zombies to sprinters. That seemed to work, but nothing else. Please help, I've tried looking at the code to see if there are any errors or things that wont load, but nothing. I don't know if the settings are being saved somewhere else when you host a steam server compared to hosting a WAN/LAN non-steam server. Any info will help. I'll try creating a non steam server on my local network and changing the settings to see if it effects the non steam hosting. Anyway, let me know if you need any code or anything. Anything will help, thanks! -JayMel
  5. After trying multiple methods. Resetting everything. And going again. No one is giving clear instructions on how to run and connect to the server. I am running windows. Downloaded and successfully ran the SteamCMD and its app update for the dedicated server. Now what. Every port on my router is open, so port forwarding is irrelevant. I do have workshop items as well, hydrocraft ect. I saw them update uwhen i ran app_update from steam cmd so until i can check the server that seems to be in order. How do I run the server. How do i configure it. How do i connect to it. How do others connect to it. I have Hamachi if it helps at all. Keep in mind i have NEVER had any sort of server running. Assume if it i didnt say it in the post, I havent done it. *EDIT To clarify, I want to run a server, that anyone can join, including myself on the same computer.
  6. I am trying to run a steam server and I got the steam CMD and I am running the steam server, but it will not download the TCP port thing. I have my ports open, and my firewall off. I'm not sure what else I can do to get this to work. http://imgur.com/TOTJoH9
  7. I'm working on Bash and Powershell scripts to locally automate some administrative tasks for the Project Zomboid dedicated server using the RCON service in the interest of platform-independence. Instead of writing my own platform-independent RCON client or borrowing another, I would be like to use the one packaged with Project Zomboid proper (zombie.rcon.Main) - but as of build 33.20 the RCON client does not seem to be distributed with the dedicated server. Would it be possible to distribute this client with the dedicated server? I think this would be a sensible decision, since the RCON client provides the most direct means to achieve programmatic server administration. If not, is it permissible for me to distribute the client along with my shell scripts? I think the Ts and Cs would allow it, but wanted to double-check. Admittedly, it wouldn't be too much of a hassle to roll my own - but It'd be cool to not reinvent the wheel. Especially if TIS is already maintaining a client that's pretty much guaranteed to remain compatible with the game
  8. Hey all, first post I've been playing Zomboid for a while, but just with a few friends. I find it hard to get them on especially with them being so different, they prefer other games it seems. I was playing on a SpiffoSpace server, and all was going well but I didn't like the fact that the server was running 24/7 and there were some people who, it seems, just exist to cause suffering Right now I'm running a pretty chilled out server, good for learning the game and just kicking back and enjoying the apocalypse. Utilities never run out, loot respawns after a week, zombies after a month. Infection is off but there's a decent amount of zombies (I may increase it too) so natural selection still applies. I used to play as a veteran but I've begun playing as a fisherman, providing food to the main base from my little seaside resort. I've also massacred most of the zombies around Giga Mart with a shotgun, so I guess that makes me a Battle Fisherman. This is a private server but anyone is welcome, I only keep it private so we don't get (as many) trolls and griefers. Anyone interested?
  9. http://pzserverlist.us/ is the first server top list out that I'm aware of. This allows you to have your members go, and vote on your server while ranking you higher into the ranks. The higher you're ranks are, the more members and views you will get for your server. PZServerList has the option to add your URL to your website, IndieStone forum post, ect. for your server which will get you even more traffic. It's as easy as joining, and filling out the information. Send your members to it for views, raitings, ect. and watch the members of your Project Zomboid server grow. The reason this was created was due to the fact that I googled thinks like "Project Zomboid Servers" "Project Zomboid Server List" and lots more, and could barely find any servers that works, nor did I find any website on google that had more than 2-3 servers on it. The steam forums had none, and TheIndieStone.com wasn't even listed among them. Also, I made sure to have a link to ProjectZomboid.com in the 'cool links' section REMEMBER You get higher rank if you send users to your post on the site, as well as using the link provided after making an account and putting it on any website to send users over. This is how you vote for the site. You can send them manually to your post and have them click the vote button. Regardless of how they vote, this is how you gain ranks on the site, and get higher up. Due to many new members not knowing how to rank higher, as well as lots of other questions I've added a FAQ page. Which tells you the best ways to get ranked, what In's Out's, ect. are, and lots of other things. I have also tied in the About Us page into the FAQ to lower the navigation menu a bit. ____________________________________________________________________________ End of the week Reward: Seeing as we're new, and want to get more people interested, or more active we're hosting an end of the week contest.

  10. Server Offline Thanks to all that played but due to enough interest this server is now offline.
  11. Currently we have these files for altering sandbox-settings (especially looking at MP): SandboxVars.luazombies.iniservertest.iniSandbox PresetsSetting this up for MP is kinda stressful, especially there are a couple of settings in more files. IMHO it would be way easier if all the sandbox settings are only set within the Sandbox Presets. With this system you could alter the settings right ingame and save the preset, copy the file to server and you´re pretty much done. Wouldn´t this be easier for the devs too? Only one place where they have to worry about the settings, one way of exporting them, one way of reading them Would definitely get rid of a whole lot of confusion out there.
  12. I'm trying to follow the multiplayer FAQ instructions for setting up a linux multiplayer server on my Debian 7.8 installation, running java 1.8.0_45 (Java SE Runtime Environment). I'm getting the following error message when I'm attempt to run projectzomboid-dedi-server.sh: Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM warning: ignoring option UseSplitVerifier; support was removed in 8.0Loading RakNet from: /home/games/ProjectZomboid/ProjectZomboid_964/projectzomboidException in thread "main" java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: /home/games/ProjectZomboid/ProjectZomboid_964/projectzomboid/libRakNet32.so: libstdc++.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory at java.lang.ClassLoader$NativeLibrary.load(Native Method) at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadLibrary0(ClassLoader.java:1937) at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadLibrary(ClassLoader.java:1855) at java.lang.Runtime.loadLibrary0(Runtime.java:870) at java.lang.System.loadLibrary(System.java:1122) at zombie.core.raknet.RakNetPeerInterface.init(RakNetPeerInterface.java:30) at zombie.network.GameServer.main(GameServer.java:149)It claims that it cannot open libstdc++.so.6, and when I run sudo apt-get install libstdc++6 it says that "libstdc++6 is already the newest version." Any tips on how I should proceed, and what I could potentially do to fix this would be much appreciated
  13. Hey guys, I've been working on getting my mod to work on multiplayer and since there are very little resources on that topic I have a few questions. isClient() / isServer() What these methods do is clear, however when I call isClient() in a file that is located in shared it returns false although the initial call flow was triggered client side. So I execute a UI action located in client and call my reload script located in shared but isClient() returns false. Can anyone give me further information on these two methods? ModData I noticed that if I modify moddata on client side, it will not affect the moddata on server side. Now I looked through the existing code and found: transmitModData() - That sounds like exactly what I need, however it is not available on the HandWeapon object weapon:transmitModData() - Object tried to call nil player:sendObjectChange('addItem', { item = kit } ) - Seems to send a request to the client to add an item, I'm not sure if every object supports this and what the exact syntax is, can I just call any method on the target remote object with parameters? Can anyone elaborate on this function? Does anyone have another idea how I could sync the modData of an object betwen client and server? My first attempt to use sendClientCommand - process it server side and change the moddata failed to accomplish what I need.
  14. It would be nice if a server would show how many days have already passed since it went online. So that you don't end up on a server with no lootable food anywhere.
  15. Alright so I started hosting a server on a friends server Virtual Machine, I edit the server with windows remote desktop but enought about that. My issue is that in the game I and my friend have 15 ping (friend) 40 ping (me) but the zombies just stand still and move little even when you sprint, like they are lagging alot but without moving much. And they also phase in and out of existance, like I look at a zombie and the next second it disappears, and then appears again and so on. And the zombies are extremely hard to kill, i guess not hard to kill but when you hit them they get knocked back, and are knocked back like that for about 40 sec and then they fall on the ground, and take 20 hits to kill. Does anyone know how to fix this? Server specs:(Not all resources are used on my virtual machine) OS: Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard CPU: Intel Xeon CPU 2.13 GHz RAM: 6 GB (Can be boosted to 12GB since it's a virtual machine,) Internet: 1Gigabit per second (Can be boosted to 10Gigabit per second, not kidding)
  16. Couldn't figure out how to remove.
  17. Hey guys, so I decided to change my Minecraft server into a PZ server and have been using the Cent OS guide pinned here. I've read all through every page, as well as googled the error etc etc but am still stuck. I'm at this point: app_update 108600 -beta onlinetest validateAnd I get this error: app_update 108600 -beta onlinetest validate/home/buildbot/buildslave/steam_rel_client_linux/build/src/clientdll/applicationmanager.cpp (961) : Assertion Failed: Failed to write app state file /server/steamapps/appmanifest_108600.acf/home/buildbot/buildslave/steam_rel_client_linux/build/src/clientdll/applicationmanager.cpp (961) : Assertion Failed: Failed to write app state file /server/steamapps/appmanifest_108600.acf Update state (0x3) reconfiguring, progress: 0.00 (0 / 0)Error! App '108600' state is 0x1 after update job.And got sick of just sitting and staring at my screen not knowing wtf to do next lol. Help please! Edit: Patience is a virtue, downloaded after a lot of reattempts.
  18. I have installed the map properly and it works fine in singleplayer but when I load it up after following the instructions (i'm pretty sure I did everything right) mentioned in this post http://theindiestone.com/forums/index.php/topic/7897-build-26-custom-maps-spawn-locations/. I get an error message in the server console saying it cannot find the objects.lua. I can see it in the Muldraugh, KY folder but not in the Bedford Falls, KY folder. There only seems to be 4 files in the Bedford Falls .rar and none of them were an objects.lua file. Edit: Does Bedford Falls even come with an objects.lua? I know the New Denver map doesn't. I't would be nice if someone knew how to get it to work because currently when I join my server and spawn in Bedford I'm restricted to one cell near a motel. I would really like to be able to play with my friend on this map so any help is very much appreciated.
  19. Hi all, I have recently started up a server for my friends and I to play on. Everything works fine except for the fact that whenever I try to enter commands into the console like 'grantadmin' or 'additem' is does not work. I am very confused as to why is is not working and any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Admin issues

    So has anyone else dealt with a situation where admin status has been granted to a player, the player is capable of logging on as a proper admin (with the [admin] brackets and coordinates in the bottom left). For a while all was working well; AdminTools window is available as well as ExtendedBuildings. I teleported to the mall, then was no longer capable of dropping items or even transferring from any container to another (incl. back bag). The char comes back in with admin status [but not in brackets on global chat] and was and i don't know why but loot can be moved normally again, though AdminTools has stopped working. I have tried wiping my hard drive of any Project Zomboid-related folders, reinstalling and the same thing keeps occurring. We've tried granting admin status to a fresh char and the issues continue (probably something to do with either my IP or my steamapps folder? Either way, we were troubleshooting this for a while with even more question marks as we continued. Peculiar, to say the least as I am still capable of adminning (but the AdminTools/extended buildings will definitely expedite the process). As far as I know I'm alone on this, so anyone with a similar experience or any insight that could help, would be greatly appreciated - on MacOSX 10.10.3 (also sorry I posted this in the general PZ support wiki, then found this more apply organized string of topics and couldn't delete my first post)
  21. I would like to host a Pz server for myself and a group of friends. However, for some inane reason the phone company reserves all ports from 10'000 to 40'000, which includes the Pz port 16261. Is there any way to change the pz port? Either via a mod or in the files? Ive looked around, but not found anything. Thank you for your help. Im running Pz on windows 7
  22. Hello ! I just created my server, I tried to edit some of the settings to check if it really worked ingame and it works fine ! But when my friends try to connect to my server they get the "connection failed" message every single time... I opened some of my firewall ports and nothing changes. I don't even see anything in the server logs, no connection attempt or anything... If you could help me with this one, that would be nice! Anyway, tell me if you need me to give you more infos about my configuration. See you soon, Dsign
  23. Salve, metto a disposizione un server italiano di Zomboid. Il nuovo server si trova in Italia (e non più in francia come quello precedente). Sito di riferimento: www.gravplanetitalia.net Nel browser interno del gioco lo trovate come [iT] GravPlanetItalia.net Indirizzo IP: Porta: 16261 Banner Stato Server Vi consiglio prima di unirvi al server di specificare anche una password. Se l'username non esiste, verrà creato automaticamente insieme alla password che avete scelto. Questo vi permette di non farvi fregare il nickname, qual'ora qualcuno tenti di entrare nel server con il vostro username. Il server è stato configurato come Sandbox. In questo modo è possibile personalizzare una serie di opzioni. Ecco la configurazione attuale: Opzioni generali PVP: AttivatoServer in pausa quando è vuoto: NoOggetti iniziali: Mattarello, Giornale e 3 MeleSandbox - Opzioni del Mondo Quantità Zombie: AltaDistribuzione Zombie: Centro urbanoTubature d'acqua: Fino a 60 giorniElettricità: Fino a 50 giorniFrequenza degli allarmi nelle case: Molto SpessoFrequenza delle case bloccate (Porta): Molto spessoDeterioramento degli alimenti: NormaleRespawn degli oggetti: Ogni settimanaRespawn degli zombie: Ogni settimanaMesi passati dall'apocalisse: 0Sandbox - Natura Temperatura: NormalePioggia: NormaleVelocità di erosione: Normale (100 giorni)Velocità di coltivazione: NormaleAbbondanza della natura: NormaleSandbox - Rarità degli oggetti Cibo: RaroArmi: RaroAltri oggetti: RaroSandbox - Personaggio Esperienza: 1.2xIncremento stats: NormaleSandbox - Opzioni del tempo Durata di un giorno: 2 ore (reali)Mese di inizio: LuglioOra di inizio: 7 di mattinaSandbox - Zombie Velocità: Shamblers (normali penso)Forza: DeboliResistenza: NormaleTipo di trasmissione: Sangue + SalivaMortalità dell'infezione: 1-2 settimaneTempo di rianimazione: 2-3 giorniCognizione: Navigazione di baseMemoria: CortaRaggio di visione: NormaleUdito: NormaleOdore: NormaleNB: i tempi si riferiscono a quelli del gioco.
  24. Hi. It's really quite important to me to have the game server bind to only one address (and the given ports) and not to all of them like its doing right now. My box has more than one IP and there is a listen on all addresses instead of the one I want to hand out to players. Can anyone help me fix this? Or can the devs put an option in for this asap? Thanks muchly!
