    hi there

    we test your stats at a 30 person lan with good results
    on the lan no internet connection is possible
    so we have to play with offline accounts
    but we got 2 problems
    the most players earned over 3000 points and are privates
    without any unlocks

    is there a way to select the earned unlocks via the web interface
    and why are all humans without any ranks in game and on the web interface ??

    thx in advanc

    edit, your clients, %windir%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts. and point your lokal bf2stat server to "bf2web.gamespy.com"
    looks like:
    " bf2web.gamespy.com"

    than go in BF2, login, and open BFHQ (upperleft corner)

    Than you can unlock kits!
    this will also explayn, why you are Privat. Your Game dont collect the earned points from your lokal BF2Stats...

    hope could help...CSUNO

    Point both server and client hosts files to your web server's IP adress.

    same problem for me
    90% of players usinf offline accounts
    have 3000+ point - dont get rank & unlocks...
    if you playing offline account - you CANT go to BFHQ
    BFHQ only available in online account...
    any ideas ?

    I have the same problem, but it definitely works with online accounts! my online account is awarded/rank kept.
    Also my offline players are stored into mysql.... (appear in webinterface with ranks)
    Oflline PLayers receive awards/ranks/ but the game doesn't show in the ingame next round.(they are definately stored into mysql)

    Have you guys above looked into your mysql, if your offline player are stored here??

    yes - online account works PERFECT
    but BFHQ available only in onlne accounts
    its lilmitation of the game ?

    BFHQ is limited by the game...
    would be great to access BFHQ with offline Account,

    but breaks EA/DICE EULA....... = problem

    your's offline accounts are stored into mysql with unique generated PID???
  8. virtualinsanity

    virtualinsanity New Member

    yes - all stored in base with unique PIDs

    then... we have exactly the same problem...
    what files are you using???

    -BF2_w32ded 1.2
    -XAMPP 1.4.16
    -BF2statistics 1.2

    -Server: bf2ded / webserver/mysql

    can you please try to point your hosts file of the SERVER instead on to your lan ip?? e.g.
    perhaps may this work better....

    Ok guys. I had the same problem! But if you use offline accounts it's useless to point hosts, to change your ip, to go to BFHQ etc....The stat system doesn't work with offline! The best thing you can obtain with offline accounts is that the system update ranks but only in the web insterface not ingame!

    hmm then i'm sorry...
    think we have to wait for programmer..
    but i'm not quite sure that this is a script problem.

    As you may know your're not able to set sv.useglobalrank / sv.useglobalunlock to 1 with sv.internet 0
    it might be, that with those offline accounts bf2 isn't interested in asking for ranks/unlocks..
    (as coloraid wrote, bf2 don't ask for ranks/unlocks)

    But I think I remember MrNiceGuy told that it should work... so let's wait for him or someone other...

    Same problem here too - we've been using BigHamster for LAN CoOp, but would love to have unlocks etc, but none of us have OnLine accounts. Hopefully we can get this to work with offlines, as we'd all love to have rankings and unlocks for our lunchtime sessions :)

    some sort of web backend would be nice
    or a simple php file for the ranks
    that converts the earned points to the rank and save it in the database
    same for the unlocks
    other question is it posible to do the rank and unlock thing manually in the database ?

    sorry if my questions sounds stupid
    but i try to learn and understand %-6

    thx in advance
