If you are running the dedicated server and the Client on the same machine then you need to change the ports for one or the other. Otherwise they will conflict and you won't be able to join the game of the server is already running.
You can either change the server port in the command line or go into your client game and change the ports there.
I started a dedicated server and can't connect to it

Dude, statistically speaking
I wasn't. I was speaking metaphorically. Besides... I blink slow.
Quote: --- Original message by: JoshflighterThe website has only been open for a little over 14 years. While that may be a major part of your guys's lifetime for me it is just an eye blink.
Honestly, I'm surprised this site isn't dead (or shut down by Dennis lol).
Quote: --- Original message by: PepzeeYou are correct. For the most part copyright's (in the gaming community in particular) do not become an issue until here is money involved. Either you are doing something that interferes with the owners income or trying to sell something (intellectual property) you don't own. Until money is involved it is mostly treated as viral advertising.
I feel like these copyright discussions popup from time to time. If people want to sell Halo assets they made they should find another way to make money.

"It doesn't work that way"
Yes it still could.
You are missing context. Copyright laws are not black and white and have various shades of grey, which was my point. Just hotlinking or posting a picture not yours on your website is not a violation of the copyright unless it is. It could also definitely not be a copyright violation but at the same time definitely an actionable licensing violation. or neither. It is not cut and dried and nearly always complex. The short answer to his example was "It doesn't work that way". meaning it is not a simple as that.

"It was offered without charge"
See? you said it yourself. Offering something without charge is known as being free.
Free, in his context, implies without restrictions but in reality all it means is without an exchange of money. Again you are missing the point.

Just wondering what everyone favorite maps are for forerunner architecture.
It is hard to choose. I liked these three as well as a number of the others listed above. You can see them at art.halomaps.org site.

Anyone who has ever "used" an image, such as by copying it, or hot-linking to it, without explicit copyright permission, has also committed copyright infringement!
Quote: --- Original message by: sparky after all, Halo Online was made available for free during beta testing, wasn't it? No it wasn't. It was offered without charge but all licensing and copyrights were maintained. Modifying, copying or redistribution was prohibited.
Quote: --- Original message by: sparky Says the guy who brags about having "multiple copyrights".
If you have any idea what I'm saying here, you can clearly see that the whole copyright law system is a massive conspiratorial sham.
What is clear is you have no idea what you are talking about.

Quote: --- Original message by: natepleyForerunner planets and Rings worlds would most likely share the same flora and fauna since they had to be transplanted from somewhere. While there would be a larger abundance on planets I would think that there would be a larger diversity on ring worlds since they were manufactured and could draw on numerous planets. After all Lumoria is actually an artifact not a planet. I know because I said so in the second episode.
Adding wildlife to Lumoria would make sense since it's a planet, but I'm not sure if it would make sense for blind wolves
Quote: --- Original message by: NertezThis is a valid solution.
It's a permission issue, so reinstalling the OS is not required. Right click on your Halo folder in Documents > My Games and in the security tab, give full control to the current user.
Quote: --- Original message by: NertezNever, ever do this! It leaves your PC open to malware.
Or try disabling UAC
Quote: --- Original message by: HalonimatorThere is substantial evidence to the contrary.
Sorry Dennis but that guy Masterz1337 isn't a good person and he shouldnt be making halo mods.

The hope is to do all new audio recordings.
Quote: --- Original message by: DeadHamsterIt is not about the money it is about family.
Dennis' company manages over 80 websites outside of Halomaps. Some of those I imagine actually make him some money, unlike us.

Quote: --- Original message by: Crossbow SRThe way the download system works is that when you select a file to download, in the background, the website sets up a download reservation with the download server. The download server then copies the file to a queue for downloading. The delay before sending you to the download server is to insure that the entire file gets copied to the queue which when very busy can take up to 15 seconds. If you start downloading before the file is copied into the queue the server locks the file and you will get a corrupted download. That is why there is a 20 second delay (not 30).
1) Can someone change the limit of 30 seconds to 1 second to download Halomaps Without waiting so much for each map you want to get

He was the only one w a valid answer, should've let him rock
Quote: --- Original message by: KinnetI have never seen that happen. If you don't specify the port on the command line it will default to port 2302. the way to change the port is to specify it on the command line at startup with the directive "-port 2322" for example. I have never heard of it changing the ports before. Are you running some third party app that may be doing it or is it a vanilla CE server?
So somehow i managed to setup my own dedicated server, everything works, people can join and i'm using SAPP. The problem is when i restart my PC the port of the IP address of the server randomly changes, i have specified the port "2312" when launching the server and also i have set up my PC's IP address to static, but the port keeps randomly changing which forces me to have to ask a friend to join the server and tell me in what port is it on, which is really annoying, any help is appreciated.

Let's put it this way, currently the internet works. If it's working fine at the moment, why change anything?
