Basically, my question is what features can BF2 stats provide over a LAN only network? We have set up a BF2 dedicated server and BF2 statistics on our network at work which has no internet access. BF2 statistics can be accessed successfully through the web admin page and the built in "Test Config" completes without any errors. The only deviation from the install procedure was to add "BF2web.gamespy.com" to our company DNS server to resolve it to our stats server. This enables us to bypass using the included VB scripts to start our BF2 clients and server. Due to no online access, the clients are limited to local single player accounts as the online accounts cannot be created offline (although I've seen gamespy login emulators mentioned in other posts). As the clients play on the server we can inspect the BF2 database and see the player names with their accumulated scores but awards and ranks are missing. This is what we would like from BF2 stats, which is basically an equivalent of the online stats track provided by gamespy: - Persistent Awards: currently awards are reset when we rejoin the server i.e. the player keeps getting the same awards - Persistent Ranks: these currently don't work at all as everyone stays as Private - Viewer: some method of viewing the stats. We have tried Battlefield 2 Stats Viewer but it times out when trying to query players. Can anybody clarify what BF2 stats can achieve on a LAN only environment?
