Dedicated Conclave Servers

Recommended Posts

From my experience as a person trying to find a match, each time I look for one, I always join an empty lobby.

This means the ONLY way for Conclave to be playable is to go to Recruiting chat and ask for people to message you to join your session (in somebody's dedicated server).

Furthermore, I would recommend anyone who makes a server to list their Warframe name as so their server can be identified, rated, and then revisited if possible.

There are currently two solutions (in my mind) for this:

Spoiler

 

1: Add Server listing (Warframe server system lists servers with best connectivity + minimum/optimal populations) to Conclave to allow Tenno to find a match of their choosing rather than letting the system throw them into an empty lobby, which suddenly makes everyone think nobody's playing Conclave at all.

Each server will use a Tenno's Warframe name, followed by their server MOTD. Addendum: This would allow for 'public-'private' Conclave matches, although this was around before this update.

2: Add server listing as described above, and automate the process to find matches with the minimum Tenno of equal number within, if not gather that number as soon as you're in a lobby due to how it would function:

If <2 Tenno in a Lobby, raise Lobby priority until population is minimum (1v1)/optimal (for team matches, equal numbers)/full, then shift server to 'back of card deck' until spaces open up.

If Lobby Full, 'Hide' Server until Lobby population drops below Full.

If Lobby Empty, 'Hide' until no other Servers are available.

Though this is a guess on my part (a mere Tenno who knows no code).

Although there may be more complex methods that would be better, these are the options we have to my mental comprehension.

 

Just saying for the sake of knowing, and sorry if this isn't where it should be.

Out of curiosity, will this affect consolses in the future or pc exclusive? 

Dedicated servers are and will be PC only

It's probably the same argument as with crossplay - Microsoft and Sony would not allow it and there's a disparity with game updates.

Not really, the dedicated server run on current PC build.

Would it be possible to have the installer have an option for server install ? It's not possible to install Warframe on a server with an older onboard graphic card or in any XEN/KVM setup where you only have default vga drivers. e.g.:

So far I only had 2 crashes and reports have been submitted. There were some errors but they seem to be related to the hotfix as well as strict error reporting.

You can copy paste the whole game`s folder but that would be needed after each patch

Thanks for the heads-up here - I have a small server box running Win10 Pro that I built myself that only has onboard graphics... I'm hoping it's enough to get past this stage. I'd rather not have to get a dedicated graphics card for running a server. I'm going to have a play with this today and will report back with my specs if it works. And any NAT / routing issues I encounter!

Two things I would gladly see to come:

1. Give us a way (or tell us a way how to create a bat file with all arguments and such) to launch a dedicated server without having to open up a launcher.

2. Make an option which makes the server to be adaptive and host pve game modes too, what I mean by that is that the server could run any game mode depending on "demand". So for example, if I was to make such server it could load any game mode and any map that has no other dedicated server available (or other dedicated server that has this adaptive option).

Always just "NAT bound for server to ip:5010", I have port 5010 forwarded so I don't know what's going on here.

I'm also curious to how you guys know which IP is what account, since we never log in, does it just check the IP and how many times a certain account has logged in from it?

@Farris - I think this is normal, we rebind NAT periodically, so if there's no game going, you'll see mostly these. Judging by the partial log after join the player has simply disconnected. I see you on the dedicated server leaderboards now so it seems like you have hosted a complete game session :)

SonicSonedit posted a batch command earlier:

To start server without launcher, create a batch file (StartServer.BAT) in your warframe installation folder (D:\Games\Steam\steamapps\common\Warframe\ for me) with following contents (paste as single line):

start "Warframe PVP Dedicated Server" /d "Tools" "Warframe.x64.exe" "-fullscreen:0 -dx10:0 -dx11:1 -threadedworker:1 -cluster:public -language:en -allowmultiple -log:DedicatedServer.log -applet:/Lotus/Types/Game/DedicatedServer /Lotus/Types/GameRules/DefaultDedicatedServerSettings -override:{"missionId":DM_Title,"motd":"FOR MOTHER LOTUS"}""

I guess being in Hawaii means I probably won't get anyone on my server even if it is working. :(

It seems I can join it just fine, but I wonder if anyone else can.

Ok, so alt tabbing while in the server lobby in order to type that last line resulted in me losing connection apparently.

I guess it's working ok.  I managed to invite a friend into a match and it launched fine though he quit just before the timer for the match start finished.

I have a server running for about 10 hours, not seeing myself on leaderboard. Do I need to start my client and log in after starting it? Because I didn't do that. I was just playing, without having started a server yet, a hotfix dropped, so I updated, started dedicated server, and walked away.

It seems to be accepting connections and running games...

5) Where is the list of console commands?

6) What does "Variant" do?

 

5. Because we are not admins and we can not change anything in this game... it's not our private server (like in CS).

6. Variant is a game that able players to connect with Opticors only (one shot = kill), no powers, no other sh&*. JUST YOU AND YOUR LASER :)

Run into an issue if you want to run this on a virtual / remote machine:

I guess I need to get off my chair and go downstairs to my basement if I want to actually run this thing!

 

EDIT: Tried the command from @SonicSonedit and it ran just fine with a bat file - seems to have started!

cool im hosting now, lets hope it helps those crazy, crazy bastards who play pvp.

Ha - exactly! I don't even play pvp (I have a tendency to go full Hulk rage monster), I'm just curious / slightly excited to try this out. I have no idea how to test it - I'm not entirely sure I can get out and back in to my own firewall without more routing shenanigans but will investigate more later.

I don't think Sony, or Microsoft, allow these kinds of runtimes on their machines. They tend to go quite strict with the way you execute applications. 

Just a guess, but DE would probably be mandated to have the Server be part of the actual Warframe runtime (built into the game) in order to allow distribution on their platform.

Your email address is stored as plain text, in a config file, on your PC. DE already pull this info when you boot up warframe. Probably a similar approach, with the server operating under the email address present in the config file.

Since you aren't technically capable of effecting the profile, there's probably no security risk outside those already present.

The same as that of warframe itself (not really, but I'd you meet those your good.)
