Until this forum becomes busy just include BF2, 2142 or BFV in the title

Do Windows SSM mods work on Linux Servers?

Post by Scooby »

Hi, this to you guys must be such a noob question, I have modded some maps, Hastings, Khe Sahn etc, I have modded them and have then tested them using BFV Server 1.2. The thing is they are being installed on a Linux Server from Gametracker and they don't work ;(

Do I need a BFV Linux Server to mod the maps on? And if so do I need Linux installing on my PC to do the mods? Or is there some way arround this?

Thanks

Scooby

Hi Scooby. I havent modded anything for bfv, but for bf42 the difference is that in linux you need to use small letters where the default in windows is that the files starts with capital letters.

So if a map is called Battle_of or something the like in windows, just rename it to battle_of and try again.

The game file layout does not differ between linux and windows versions.

freddy however pointed out the one important thing to consider, and there's actually a very simply rule for that to follow: No capital letters at all in file names and you are 100% fine on that end :) .

The only real difference is in the executables, as obviously linux requires a different launch process. So as long as you don't want to go exe-hacking, you'll be fine ;) .

Thanks for the reply, so what you are saying is that (for my very simple mind) as long as the file names within the .RFA files are all in lowercase there is no reason why these modded .RFA's shouldn't work on a Linux (Ubuntu) server and run fine?

Edit* You guys are the best, I changed the RFA to be lowercase - so Hastings_001 became hastings_001 and this works fine - Thanks again for your help guys, you are the best :D
Thanks again - checking the files now!
