Need Advice for Dedicated Server Operation
I and my friend are to start a JPN dedicated server on BMS4.33U2.
We hold default KTO Rolling Fire Campaign with Grib2fmap weather data auto update.
We still have several problems and need helps and tips.
1.Can’t create package
In our campaign, 36th FS’s ATO set by HQ disabled and players are to create there own package so that they don’t have to wait until AI created ATO T/O time.
However, when I try to Add Package It only creates a flight. When I press OK at “ADD FLIGHT” tab, both “ADD PACKAGE” tab and “ADD FLIGHT” tab disappears and Falcon adds flight I created. So I can’t include 2 or more flights in 1 package. I set Takeoff time 40-60 minutes later than current time as it was mentioned at FO SOP and BMS Manual but didn’t help. I am Sure I locked Takeoff time. How can I add second flight before “ADD PACKAGE” tab closing?
2.Server admin backs to 2D Automatically
Sometimes server admin backs to 2D without hitting Esc->E key. He usually joins 25th FS A-10. He uses this to run a server without powerful GPU. Anyone has any idea about what might causing this?
3.Disabling Player’s mission success/fail affects Force
I heard that Falcon’s Dynamic Campaign will affect allied force dominance when humans Success or Failed on there missions. Like when Human player continue losing, Allied Force will be more likely to lose and vice versa. I am understanding its not that like “Because you failed in SEAD mission STRIKE flight has destroyed by SA-2” but means its affecting 2D AI “Rolling a dice”. I heard there is a falcon bms.cfg option to disable this feature but I could not find it. What was it?
If there are any TIPS that helps server stability could you advice me?
. Server admin must be in 3D.
. Client must not enter 3D twice without restarting the sim(I know it would be result in clients memory leakage but would it also affects server?).
. set g_nClientPort 2935(FO indicates client to set this option to .cfg/is this for server stability?)
I found when I run campaign with single(on my PC no multiplay) then I can add several flights on package.
When I connected the dedicated server, I could not. Add package tab immediately disappears when I add first flights.
I could add another flight to the already created package from ATO menu so its still possible to create a package consists of several flights.
Its still weird that I cannot add several flight when I “add package”.
For the second problem, IIRC falcon forces player to back to 2D when he did not takeoff for several minutes.
I wonder how other dedicated server admins solve this. Is there any option to disable this stuff?
From what I’ve heard they have the server jump into a flying aircraft and just let it crash into the ground. But I am by no means certain of this

Thx. Then I let admin jump into flying aircraft and see if it keeps server falcon in 3D.
About being kicked back to 2D, edit the ATC.ini file for each theater you use and change the times in it.
Thx BVT_Scorpion, we’ll try editing ATC.ini then.
Hi, Thx to the help we now run our dedicated server.
I sometimes fly the online campaign and try to record ACMI but I fail to save the file everytime I fly.
When I back to 2D BMS always freeze. I usually able to save ACMI when I fly 35thVFW TEs, backs to 2d in 30seconds.
On our dedicated server campaign, I can not…
An acmi for a campaign flight is huge and usually takes a while to be saved. Just let BMS run and you should get your acmi in the end.
OKay I’ll try wait for some minutes.
