Server works only sometimes

Recommended Posts

Hello there!

I have a little issue with OpenJK.

Here's my current setup:
- got JA++ installed on both client & server (got a dedicated machine for the openjkded.exe)
- For server start, I'm using this .bat

start openjkded.x86_64.exe +set dedicated 2 +exec server.cfg +set fs_game "japlus"


// Server Config
seta sv_hostname "Jedi Academy"
seta g_motd "Welcome to the Academy" 

// gametypes
// 0 = FFA
// 3 = DUEL one on one tournament
// 7 = SIEGE
// 8 = CTF
set g_gametype 0

seta sv_maxclients 16
seta g_inactivity 0
seta g_password "custompwd"

sv_maxRate 10000
set g_allowvote 0
set timelimit 69
set capturelimit 420
set g_autoMapCycle 0
set duel_fraglimit 420

map mp/duel7

- For client start, I'm using this .bat

start openjk.x86_64 +set fs_game "japlus"


What issue I am facing:
I currently am unable to connect to the server. It's stuck at "Awaiting connection..." message, and it keeps increasing. I was able to play yesterday, with a friend - we played for like 1-2 hours. I didn't touch anything since yesterday, but now it's not even working to connect anymore.
I am trying to connect from a different machine today.

I have ports open in the firewall on the server, and the openjk.exe is allowed through the client PC firewall.

There's also no log on the server console either.

Here are my japlus and base folders on the server (they're the same on the client, too)

I.. uh... I just realized server.cfg was missing from the ja_plus folder. Maybe I dragged it by mistake out of the folder, because I put it there and now I am able to connect.

Sorry for the unnecessary post.
