Setting up Crysis server config and Playing on a Modded Crysis Server

A couple of days ago i had modified the crysis server config file ( cfg)

So i am going to show you “how to currently setup a crysis dedicated server and play on a crysis dedicated server” with modifications such as low gravity, even no gravity, how to allow your players to hold and carry all crysis weapons, increase the nano speed, turn auto turrets off, and other sorts of things that will be fun to play with.

crysis dedicated server

Setting Up Your Server Config File

By default in “Drive:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis\Game\Config” create a file named autoexec.cfg and another file called server.cfg

Add all the commands you need such as

p_gravity_z 0

Or download my crysis server config.

then save it in the config directory from above.

Once that has been achieved you can then go-to “Drive:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis\Bin32″ and run CrysisDedicatedServer.exe and your server will be hosted with the current settings in autoexec.cfg except for any settings like low gravity, or any settings in your server.cfg, so execute your server.cfg by typing in crysis server console “exec server.cfg” (highlighted in green on the image above).

Running low gravity and joining the server

Hosting and playing on a dedicated server means that you will have to enable developer mode, which will also enable god mode commands etc to work, but there maybe a command in crysis to disable them too, check out the crysis commands list tosee a full list of commands.

1. Setup the server config as above

2. run CrysisDedicatedServer.exe -DEVMODE , to do this download this file “developer server” and place it in your “Drive:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis\Bin32″ folder then double click it to run. (as shown on the image above)

3. Do the same with the client file Crysis.exe -DEVMODE, to do this download this file “developer client” and place it in your “Drive:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis\Bin32″ folder then double click it to run.

If you wish to join your own server I’ve noticed you must run the client first the Crysis server.

4. Join your server either by typing in your server IP or locating it on the server list, other people will not be able to join your server if they are not running the game in DEVMODE.

Note: when in game to disable all the information on the screen open console and type: “r_Displayinfo 0″

Have fun running in DEVMODE don’t forget to try out all the nano suit commands gravity and the no weapon limit!
