Remote Console Access:
To setup remote console access to the server:
- On the server create a new plain text document in admin called default.cfg
- Enter the following text into the new file:
- Save the file, and start the server.
Now you can access the server remotely by using the following commands from a client:
- rcon login
Use this command to login to the server.
- rcon users
This command lists all the users connected to the server. Very similar to admin.listPlayers
- rcon exec
Replace with a console command you would like to execute on the server.
For example: rcon exec admin.kickPlayer 3
Use a text editor to edit the 'unlocks.py' file in the 'pythonbf2stats' folder.
Change line 44 from 'defaultUnlocks = [0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0]' to '
defaultUnlocks = [1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1]'.
Faster game loading:
Enter the '\ea games\battlefield 2 demo\mods\bf2\movies' folder and delete or move all of its files. There will now be no ads or movies at the start of the game.
This can also speed up the menu because there will be no movie in background.
This code can also be done in the demo version of the game.
