Game patches/updates and mods

Postby aireagle01 » Sat Mar 15, 2003 8:52 am

My OESM gamer server (Texas-Tornado) is running MOHAA/SH, and I want to add patches/updates to it as they become available, but
-
1. I believe there is a win and a linux version. Thus the updates must be be compatible, ie Linux only? as an example the MOHAASH patch 2.15 is out and i have not seen a version for a linux system
-
2. And if the update is a exe type you guys must run the update once I have uploaded it on the server ? (is this how it works?)
-
3. What i have also discovered, is that there are win mods that i can run from my PC (win2K) at home that monitor the server, these mods are for various things, like cheats, hacks, bans and such.....is this okay with you all if i do that? or does this cause issues?

Our servers are all Linux. EA failed to inform the coder they contracted for the SH port that they even released a patch. Once he found out he requested the source code, which had to be fedex'd to him. This delayed the Linux patch. We can contact you as soon as it's available.

No exe's on Linux, but there will be a tarball to unpack. This can be opened in Winzip. We can apply the official patches for you, or you can do so at your leisure. This is totally up to you.

You can run win32 programs on your end to monitor the server, that's no problem at all.
