This is possible?
There are currently appearing bf2 and bf2142 servers with 128 players, with the bf1942 is also possible?

Read about it in the bfg news and there they said that it was working quite well actually. Someone who had gotten the codes then set up a FH2 server with it, which also worked for 128 players. Here and there some lags on clientside due to network traffic limits, but stable apart from that. Dont know if it's still up, haven't heard about it in a while.

It most certainly works for BF2. Will be a regular feature in the next version of Project Reality.

However this has not been done for BF42 yet and probably never will be. Even BF2 with 128 players had some serious stability issues (netcode), and BF42 with its far crappier code surely will falter quickly without serious netcode adaptions. Which are also hardcoded and thus almost impossible to do.

It is possible to raise the limit to 128 players. With help from freddy, the BF1942 server code was succesfully changed to accomplish it.
Here are the patched files of Battlefield 1942 server executables for Windows. They include the changes to prevent 2 exploits (game.createLocalPlayer and game.setTeam) and maximum players limit was raised to 128. Included also a patched DedicatedServer.exe so you can easily select up to 128 maximum players.

There is one problem, when the server has more than 64 players it isn't listed in the in-game Gamespy server list.

The limit for Secret Weapons Demo is 32 players, right? Do you want it to 64 players or 128?

Raised the limit from 64 to 128 and it includes the patches for 3 exploits. Included also a patched DedicatedServer.exe so you can easily select up to 128 maximum players.

1: to get more bots in coop-mode open the file AIdefault.con in game.rfa and raise the value on "aiSettings.setMaxNBots"

2: prepare to be overrun!

server runs stable since yesterday

only at reboot loading new schedule it set back to 32 as Tuia explained already cause the BFserver Manager 2.01 (final) writes EACH time ServerSettings.con NEW before it starts the dedicated server with the max 64 value (32). So thereĀ“s inside the .M.a.x.i.m.u.m. .P.l.a.y.e.r.s. value set to 64 which still needs to be unlocked, same for the BFserver Manager 2.01 (final)


Great job Tuia ! You did it !
