Hello all

"IL-2 Sturmovik Cliffs of Dover" has been release few months ago. Initial version of the game had some issues so i decided wait for a while until i include it in HyperLobby supported games. After few patches and updates the game feel better and coming time to do something with it ...

The game itself is not fully compliant for HL requirements but its not anything than will break general HL functionality. I have some pending requests to 1C regarding those issues and hope they will implement em in the past. Presure from the community will be helpfull too Smile

Known issues and requirements for the game and Steam settings to run HL correctly:
* Steam must be run and be in online mode.
* Disable "Steam cloud config storage", Click "View>Game list" menu in the Steam main interface, right click "IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover" item "Properties", then click tab "Updates" and uncheck "Enable Steam Cloud synchronization for IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover". Its because HL need mangle your ini files in order to setup game sessions correctly (Same way we do it in IL2 series for ten years).
* Hyperlobby cannot change your name in online game session, you must do it yourself in your Steam profile, Click "Steam>Settings" menu in the Steam main interface, Then click "Friends" tab and change your "Profile name"
* Hosting a game (not dedicated server) will not enter the game server screem like in IL2-1946, you must click it manually via the ingame menu "Multiplayer>Server".
* Dedicated server need special setup. Some hints you can found at 1C forum: http://forum.1cpublishing.eu/showthread.php?t=22038&highlight=dedicated+server.
* Guide how to setup dedicated server with HL reflecting various needs: http://hyperfighter.sk/ftopicp-20669.html#20669

Rest of other features you know from IL2-1946 working the same way. For users using HL only as game client anything should work without problems if Steam settings meet HL requirements. Before release of HL with support for "IL-2 Sturmovik Cliffs of Dover" became public, we need pass a betatest. If you reading this post and trying to use this beta version of the HL you are part of the testing team. Since it i need you will check this thread regularly and post any issues related to this version of HL.

Any ingame issues (after you esteablish an online game) are game related. You should post those issues in to official game forum http://forum.1cpublishing.eu/forumdisplay.php?f=189 . It may help developers improve this game since its at this time under heavy development.

The HL_dedicated server has been shutdown since i have no idea how to keep it online without stupid steam disconnect error messages.

This version of HL like latest one support automated server session startup via -a commandline parameter, so there is not problem automate dedicated server registration via HyperLobby ...

I update this thread regulary with updated beta release until all known issues will be fixed ...

Release version 4.2.16 changelog:
Whats new:
* (IL2CLOD) Dedicated server password settings
Bug fixes:
* (IL2CLOD) Do not change mission name and description in hosting mode
* (IL2CLOD) Autostart also steam in dedicated server autostart mode
* (IL2CLOD) Issues with Games in progress sorting filter for password protected dedicated server

Beta version 4.2.15 changelog:
* Initial support for game IL-2 Sturmovik Cliffs of Dover.

Known issues found during open betatest:
* Game cannot connect the server and timeout (UNCONFIRMED/CLOSED)
* Game cannot detect steam and exit with message "Steam must be running to play IL-2 Sturmovik Cliffs of dover. Please launch Steam and try again." (UNCONFIRMED/CLOSED)
* Switching Steam cloud storage off user may lost control settings. Solution is backup/restore control settings via the game interface. (GAME FEATURE, NOT HL FAILURE)

I'm timing out as well when trying to join your server Jiri.

Perhaps it is a port problem?

Maybe it something to do with the secret small Steam Clod download that does not change the game version.

I have setup 24/7 dedicated server for testing HyperLobby client joining capabilites (HL_Dedicated). The closed testing show than this server is not much stable and if you found any issues, report em and i will restart the server.


The timeout messages you getting because the dedicated server crashing again and again, and we got new patch. I have updated and restarted the dedicated server, but will check later if all is ok.

Nice work Jiri! Reminds me of when you did this for the original IL2 and how your lobby got people playing online back then. Tried the update today, and steam gave an update as we launched which caused the first attempt to fail. Once steam's update finished, the launcher worked fine as host and client (host has the stated limitations) It also appears that the settings either by you or by steam have been modified to more player friendly settings. So the game ran better, for longer, than it has in the past.

Issue - the HL Dedicated server for testing is refusing connections so testing performed hosting my own through the lobby with a squad mate as client...

Defect - using the beta HL to launch causes all control settings to be unloaded. Have to manually load userconf to restore them.

Not sure if you can help with the other known issues. Losing sound after a while, controls stop responding for some players after playing a while. If I had to bet, there' a memory leak somewhere that kills player pc's after a limited time.

Overall though, nice job so far! Thanks for the work to everyone involved.


What do you mean by "Defect - using the beta HL to launch causes all control settings to be unloaded. Have to manually load userconf to restore them." ?

I downloaded HL and now I'm trying to enter the game path. I put in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\il-2 sturmovik cliffs of dover but it won't accept it.
Could someone help me out with what path I'm to put in. Thank you in advance.
Smile

I worked it out. It works great. The only thing is that all my stick, throttle, pedal settings are gone. I'm thinking it may have been due to the update people are talking about, through steam. I didn't notice the update but it may have happened very quickly after activation.

In game though, through HL, was awesome. No stutter, nothing. Very pleased. I was the only one there though.

I'm going to go back into the game from outside HL and see if I lost all my settings in there.

Salute
..........................
Went back in game from outside HL and all my settings were gone. I reckon it was the update that uploaded to Steam. Didn't take long to get em all back to normal.

Logged back into HL and all was good. It's working great.

Hi all,

I am now able to host our dedicated server in the HL, what is great. But it does not appear as host on the left side, just as player on the right side. I can join the server, by just right click and join and all is fine. Only problem so far, the server appears as player not as dedicated host.

I never hosted a dedicated server in the HL, could someone give me hint?

Thanks for your efforts.
