GTR2 Dedicated server problem..."Incompatible game version..."
« on: December 02, 2007, 04:54:00 pm »
Does anyone know a way around the "Incompatible game version" error I get when I try to join my own dedicated server in GTR2?   :?:

I'm sure that the issue arises from my modded install of GTR2. 

 :ty:

Update...I solved that problem with a .PLR file tweak.  Under MULTIPLAYER settings..."Host Port Start", I increased the starting port by one (compared to the client port start).   :)

I joined, BUT was promptly BOOTED as a "possible cheat"   :grrr:

it is either the Terrain patch :not lightly as your more than lightly using same install

other is a setting in the PLR
Report Mismatches ="2" // server to act on mismatches by: 0=no checking, 1 = warning messages, 2 Boot Mismatch 

change the "2" to either "1" or "0" depending on what you want to happen  SJ server is set to "0"

think that will solve ya problem

Thanks guys.   thumbs up

I did the .plr file tweak to prevent boots.  That's been working for in-game hosted sessions.  I thought I had the "incompatible game version" thing beat, as it let me in, but booted me as a "possible cheat."

Tried it again and was right back the ol' "incompatible game version."   :grrr:

Will report back after disabling the Terrain Patch.   ;)

Tried disabling the Terrain Patch...No GO.   :(

BUT...*insert "DOH!!! smiley here*...My dedicated EXE is version 1.0 and my GAME version is 1.1   :innocent:

Anyone know where I can get a compatible dedicated.exe?  (and/or WHY it wasn't included in the 1.1 patch  :grrr: )

 :hats off:

I finally got it worked out.   thumbs up

I had to reinstall GTR2 and the V1.1 update, but I can join my own dedicated now.   :biggrin:
