Start BF4 with 1 or 2 players, is it Possible?

How can I Start BF4 with 1 or 2 players, is it Possible ?

 

Preferably 1 Player.

 

This is so people can look for PHANTOM TAGS by themselves in my server, without having 4 people in to start a game.

 

Some times my sever does actually start with 1 player, but then reverts back to 4 player start....

Not sure how to fix that.

vars.roundStartPlayerCount 1

vars.roundRestartPlayerCount 0

 

After you have installed the 2 command lines. RESTART the server. After the initial restart, you will need to start the first round with 4 players, once it has started you will need only 1 player to start all the following rounds.

 

*NOTE* Each time the server is restarted by either you or your provider it will the take 4 players to start the first round, after the initial start the 1 player start will then be in working order again. You do NOT need to re-add the lines after each restart as they are kept in the config file.

 

This WILL NOT effect the Rank or Official value of your server, some say it will but they are full of $hit!

 

Good Luck & Best Wishes, GUNNY1966

You only need the vars.roundRestartPlayerCount 0 to do that.

I believe DICE patched the bug that allowed you to have valid rounds with less than 4 players. This is to avoid boosting, 2 player flag run, and a bunch of other things that also break the EA terms of service.

Serverrestart, wait for 4 players to join..

The round get started now, the next rounds will be 1P start.

If u restart the server now u have to wait for 4 players again tho....

  • Our picks

    • I wanted I let you know that I am starting to build out the foundation for the hosting services that I talked about here. The pricing model I was originally going for wasn't going to be suitable for how I want to build it. So instead I decided to offer each service as it's own product instead of a package deal. In the future, hopefully, I will be able to do this and offer discounts to those that choose it.

      Here is how the pricing is laid out for each service as well as information about each. This is as of 7/12/2020.

      Single MySQL database (up to 30 GB) is $10 USD per month.



      If you go over the 30 GB usage for the database then each additional gigabyte is charged at $0.10 USD each billing cycle. If you're under 30GB you don't need to worry about this.


      Databases are replicated across 3 zones (regions) for redundancy. One (1) on the east coast of the USA, One (1) in Frankfurt, and One (1) in Singapore. Depending on the demand, this would grow to more regions.


      Databases will also be backed up daily and retained for 7 days.




      Procon Layer will be $2 USD per month.


      Each layer will only allow one (1) game server connection. The reason behind this is for performance.


      Each layer will also come with all available plugins installed by default. This is to help facilitate faster deployments and get you up and running quickly.


      Each layer will automatically restart if Procon crashes. 


      Each layer will also automatically restart daily at midnight to make sure it stays in tip-top shape.


      Custom plugins can be installed by submitting a support ticket.




      Battlefield Admin Control Panel (BFACP) will be $5 USD per month


      As I am still working on building version 3 of the software, I will be installing the last version I did. Once I complete version 3 it will automatically be upgraded for you.





      All these services will be managed by me so you don't have to worry about the technical side of things to get up and going.

      If you would like to see how much it would cost for the services, I made a calculator that you can use. It can be found here https://ezrcon.com/calculator.html

    • I have pushed out a new minor release which updates the geodata pull (flags in the playerlisting). This should be way more accurate now. As always, please let me know if any problems show up.
