    co op server settings issue

    hello, I think i have an issue on my end: i have started a server in the latest iwbums with the easy co op, i set sleepallowed and sleepneeded to on (they are both on in the serversname.ini file in user/zomboid/server - if that is of any help, the server name is set to servertest1) i have also set the loglocalchat to true, with the intention of being able to read the local chat in the chat box, i checked it on the servername.ini file and that's on there as well both of these things aren't working on my server sadly and i have no clue what i might have done wrong or what kind of info i should provide here the last issue i have is with custom spawn points, but i still haven't tried everything yet so i'll wait to see if i can fix it myself.
  3. Hi Spiffo's Community, I have a problem when I tried to open the server settings at the build 33 of Project zomboid, when I opened the pz server settings from the folder "PZServerSettings", I opened the .bat and this problem appeared "to could not load the class zombie.PZServerSettings.MainWindow" I want an aswer as early as possible Thanks for you interesting on this topic.
  4. Hi everybody, has anyone a clue if it is possible to lower the time to get bored on a MP-Server? Thirst and hunger scale very well with real time settings but boredomness semms to be at the same speed than on exaple 2h settings. needing around 3h for reading a book this makes you very depressive while reading. I would like to change this so it also scales with the real time setting. Any help is welcome
  5. Hi everyone. I am preparing a MP Server for a few people and would like to Set different sets of spawn items for each class. Is this possible? I just can define a fixed set for everyone at the moment. Or is there a way to define different sets to give random spawn items?

    Too Many Zombies!

    Okay, I've gotten a server up and running for me and a friend, but no matter what I do to the server settings, it still seems our world is OVERWHELMED with zombies. It's impossible to go anywhere and loot or do anything. I tried this: And I click save, and it seems to save, but when I start up the server and play, nothing has changed whatsoever. I've tried on a server that hasn't been reset. I've tried on a server I've JUST reset. What the hell am I doing wrong? I've seen videos on youtube where people play together and they don't have nearly as many zombies as I do. :T
