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.

This is still working..

 

In startup.txt:

vars.roundRestartPlayerCount 0

 

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

    • Hi All,

      So I've been thinking about doing something like this for a while but I always talked myself out of it. I want to get some feedback on this idea and how many would think about using it if it was offered.

      In the past I know how hard it was for some users to get a MySQL database going and running the BFACP (since it's a bit requirement heavy in some cases). What I would be doing is offering to manage both of these for you.

      If enough interest was shown in something like this I would definitely think about doing it. Of course, I also know the risks I would be taking in something like this, but to list what I would be offering I guess is this.

      MySQL Hosting


      Daily backups of the database to a remote site & option to download it yourself.


      No limit on how big your database can be (within reason).




      BFACP Hosting (If running AdKats on your layers)


      This would run the newest version (v3.0)


      Will still be available to run on your own hardware


      Will have extra features that are not available for an open source setup (still need to think of good things )


      Able to use your own domain name with the proper DNS setup.




      Both Above



      Please let me know what you think of this idea and vote in the poll. Again not confirming anything like this will happen but if I get enough interest from the community for something like this then please let me know.

      Disclaimer: This will NOT be something affiliated with MyRCON but will be ran through it in terms of a payment processor.
