[FC2] server maps update

Just a quick note regarding my Far Cry 2 server..

Osseous Labyrinth updated to 1.5
Apocalypse Cow 0.3 new install

Far Cry 2 server details - link -


I've started playing around with the Far Cry 2 map editor. What an awesome piece of software! Thanks to those who played my first go at a map last night- nedJUNGLE (beta). This is more of an experiment for me rather than a mission to make a great map. While I have the server going and there are players I'll continue to work on it and throw it into the mapcycle on occasions.

edit: now called Woodland Wonderland

Info coming soon.

[FC2] Far Cry 2 and Windows 7 
Friday, 19 November, 2010, 23:29 - Far Cry

Far Cry 2 players that use any version of Windows 7 cannot auto download custom maps. Placing winhttp.dll from Windows XP into the game's \Far Cry 2\bin folder fixes this.

Windows 7 is not an OS that Ubisoft will support with regards to Far Cry 2 - link -

FIX SOURCE - discussion thread

Download winhttp.dll - LINK - 200KB

[FC2] PunkBuster install available for download 
Friday, 19 November, 2010, 09:20 - Far Cry
Posted by ned
PunkBuster is no longer contratced to support Far Cry 2. For ranked multiplayer Far Cry 2 gaming, PunkBuster is required to be enabled on both the server and client which can be a problem with new installs of the game because the PunkBuster client will now not update automatically and you can no longer manually get the required updates from the PB website. Also, after the 1.03 patch the game's remote admin functions broke so now PB is the only way to remotely administor a Far Cry 2 server. Server utilities exist but these do not function remotely.

I've made available for download a Far Cry 2 PunkBuster install.
Server version v1.734 | A1392 C2.159
Client version v2.159 | A1392

If you are having PunkBuster issues then try installing this pack (save your original pb folder first).

-make a copy of your original pb folder
-remove pb folder from game install
-add the downloaded pb folder to game install

\Far Cry 2\bin\pb

Download - LINK ~5MB -

[L4D] Silent Fear updated 
Tuesday, 26 October, 2010, 10:32 - Left 4 Dead
Posted by ned
Adam Sierra has updated his unique Left 4 Dead experience, Silent Fear. If you haven't yet played this map I suggest you do so.. it's quite a ride. This latest update addresses custom sounds after the recent game engine update. It's great to see a mapper continuing support. Unfortunately though one known bug is still present.


We also found a bug where if you jump behind the brick wall that has the list of glyphs on it you can't get out. For now this is on my test server but will be added to the main server asap pending updates.

[L4D] Dark Blood update and.. Crash Bandicoot L4D style! 
Friday, 22 October, 2010, 22:29 - Left 4 Dead
Posted by ned
CastorJudo has updated his four map Campaign Dark Blood to v2. This is a big update which includes Versus tweaks, engine and BOT improvements. See the readme for details!

Dark Blood is on both servers.


FlyingBandicoot has made a 4 map Left 4 Dead Campaign based on levels from the Crash Bandicoot series. Since the 'L4D The Sacrifice' update where they added VPK audio cache support the customs sounds aren't working but this is currently being addressed and an updated version will hopefully be out soon. A bit of a pain for mappers BUT much better for everyone once updated.

Crash Bandicoot Course v4.0 is currently on the test server and will be added to the main server once the customs sounds have been sorted.

[L4D] Server news 
Thursday, 21 October, 2010, 08:43 - Left 4 Dead
Posted by ned
I've removed Fort Noesis and I Hate Mountains from the main server. It looks like both Campaigns are no longer being developed which is a shame. Both are so close to being fully playable without major issues.

SOURCE - Fort Noesis
SOURCE I Hate Mountains - forum - Where is v1.2?

Both of these are still on the test server which is run on request or if the main server is full.

Jungle Crisis is also now only available on the test server.
