Where can I get a free server for tactical ops, which is for windows/linux?  You can get it here: http://www.tacticalops.game-database.eu  Why can´t I see the Tactical Ops servers anymore?  You can´t see the servers anymore, because the main master server of Gamespy is offline. So you must fix it in your own TacticalOps.ini and UBrowser.int. It´s easier for you, if you download the masterserver-files here: http://www.tacticalops.game-database.eu  Is Tactical Ops dead now? Masterserver dead? How to fix it?  Yes or no, how you want to see it really. With a fixed masterserver list at Tactical Ops it´s possible to play there, but there are not much players anymore like these years ago. After this offline-time at Gamespy some games lost their players. It happend to Tactical Ops, too. You can get the fixed masterserver here: http://www.tacticalops.game-database.eu A lot fans of tactical ops are still waiting on the new replacement of tactical ops: It´s called Critical Point Incursion: http://www.criticalpointgame.com/  Can I host a free gameserver at tactical ops or do I have to rent a gameserver?  Sure you can host your own gameserver. If you want to use your own home connection for a warserver, which is not 24/7 online, you must open these ports for your game tactical ops. Open your ports at your personal firewall (if you have installed it) and in your hardware firewall (for example Fritzbox) At the fritzbox you open your webinterface with the URL: fritz.box Open these ports: 7777 udp, 7778 udp and 7779 tcp. If you use another standard port like 8888, open the ports: 8888 udp, 8889 udp and 8890 tcp A gameserver, which should be online 24/7, should be rented by you. The prices of these gameservers are very cheap this time. If you search gameserver provider for tactical ops, you can order at: Gamed.de   NGZ-Server.de I have much cheaters on my tactical ops server, what can I do really? Is TOST not good enough?  TOST is an admin tool normally and not suitable as anti cheat. So if you want a anti cheat server, you can download it here: http://www.tacticalops.game-database.eu  For tactical ops 3.4 there is a full ready installed to 3.4 ace server. Only at TO 3.1.9 you should use the ACE-files. Don´t forget to set the rights for your ace files to 777 on linux servers. At windows you don´t need this stuff. How can I install a server mod in Tactical Ops?  It´s easy, it´s the same way always. Let´s take the mod Fatboy as example. At these mods you have serveractor or the serverpackage always. At Fatboy you have these commands: Serverpackage=Fatboy (put it into your TacticalOps.ini / Server.ini) and the command for running this mod. In the Server.ini / TacticalOps.ini: [Engine.GameEngine] CacheSizeMegs=64 UseSound=True ServerActors=IpDrv.UdpBeacon ServerActors=IpServer.UdpServerQuery ServerActors=IpServer.UdpServerUplink MasterServerAddress=unreal.epicgames.com MasterServerPort=27900 ServerActors=IpServer.UdpServerUplink MasterServerAddress=master0.gamespy.com MasterServerPort=27900 ServerActors=IpServer.UdpServerUplink MasterServerAddress=master.mplayer.com MasterServerPort=27900 ServerActors=UWeb.WebServer ServerPackages=Botpack ServerPackages=ActorResetter ServerPackages=TOModels ServerPackages=TODecos ServerPackages=TODatas ServerPackages=TOSystem ServerPackages=TOPModels ServerPackages=s_SWAT ServerPackages=Fatboy In your Server.ini / TacticalOps.ini: At Tactical Ops 3.1.9  Look for LocalMap=Entry.unr and change to TO-Trooper.unr?game=s_SWAT.s_SWATGame?mutators=Fatboy.Fatboy At Tactical Ops 3.4 / Tactical Ops 3.5:  Change LocalMap=Entry.unr to LocalMap=TO-Trooper.unr and add the Mutator in your Server.ini in the section [TOST42.TOSTServerActor] for example [TOST42.TOSTServerActor] Mutators[0]=Fatboy.Fatboy Mutators[1]= Mutators[2]= Mutators[3]= Mutators[4]= Mutators[5]= Mutators[6]= Mutators[7]= Mutators[8]= Mutators[9]= DisableTOST=False At TO 3.5 you have another TOST Version for example [TOST44.TOSTServerActor], but it´s the same way. Some mods are running as server mod, you don´t need server packages for these mods. Here you set a mod by this command in your TacticalOps.ini. Example for the mod ServerAdds [Engine.GameEngine] CacheSizeMegs=64 UseSound=True ServerActors=IpDrv.UdpBeacon ServerActors=IpServer.UdpServerQuery ServerActors=IpServer.UdpServerUplink MasterServerAddress=unreal.epicgames.com MasterServerPort=27900 ServerActors=IpServer.UdpServerUplink MasterServerAddress=master0.gamespy.com MasterServerPort=27900 ServerActors=IpServer.UdpServerUplink MasterServerAddress=master.mplayer.com MasterServerPort=27900 ServerActors=UWeb.WebServer ServerActors=ServerAdds.ServerAdds ServerPackages=Botpack ServerPackages=ActorResetter ServerPackages=TOModels ServerPackages=TODecos ServerPackages=TODatas ServerPackages=TOSystem ServerPackages=TOPModels ServerPackages=s_SWAT How do I install ACE on my Tactical Ops 3.1.9 server? 1. Stop the tactical ops server and delete all nbsp and utdc files in your system folder (if you have installed nbsp or utdc before) 2. Move all files of the ACE-System folder to Tactical Ops System folder. 3. Move the Shots folder to your server folder. 4. Open your server.ini and add this there: ServerActors=NPLoader_v16c.NPLActor 5. Save and restart gameserver 6. Wait 1 minute and stop gameserver again 7. Open your server.ini again and add this section to the end of your server.ini [ACEv08_AutoConfig.ACEAutoConfigActor] UPackages[0]=s_SWAT.u UPackages[1]=TOPModels.u UPackages[2]=TOModels.u UPackages[3]=Engine.u UPackages[4]=TODecos.u UPackages[5]=TODatas.u UPackages[6]=TOSystem.u UPackages[7]= UPackages[8]= UPackages[9]= UPackages[10]= UPackages[11]= UPackages[12]= UPackages[13]= UPackages[14]= 8. That´s all, now you can restart gameserver again. Important!: All .u files of the Tactical Ops system folder must be copied into the normal system folder, otherwise your gameserver will kick you everytime. How do I create .uz files for my fast download server (redirect server)?  1. Create a folder “Redirect” on your space C:\ It should look like this: C:\Redirect 2. Create a folder “Redirect” in your System folder of your Tactical Ops game for example here: C:\Program Files\Infogrames\Tactical Ops\System 3. Open your Notepad and type this there: ucc.exe compress c:\redirect\*.* Now save it under Compress.bat (change .txt to all files, otherwise it will save it as .txt file, we need .bat file) and move the Compress.bat into your System folder of your Tactical Ops game for example to: C:\Program Files\Infogrames\Tactical Ops\System 4. Copy all files into both Redirect folders, which you want to compress. 5. Now start your Compress.bat (double click with mouse) 6. Wait ... The .bat file is creating all .uz files of the copied files in your Redirect folder and will close the bat windows automatic at end. 7. Now you can go to your Redirect folder on C:\Redirect You will see new .uz files there, which you can upload to your webspace
