These are the public beta Medal of Honor: Allied Assault dedicated server binaries. This version is 2.15 bring the beta to five.


This is BETA quality code.

Run this code at your own risk. It is NOT production quality yet. Do not
put it on servers that need extreme uptime. That being said, your feedback
is most appreciated. Please get on the mailing list, and submit bugs to
Bugzilla. Bugs sent directly to my inbox are deleted without being read.
You Have Been Warned.

This binary will refuse to run in about 30 days, but there will be updates
(and hopefully an official, non-expiring version) before then.

To use this:

1) Install Medal of Honor: Allied Assult on a Win32 system.
2) Install the Spearhead expansion pack. This will patch win32 MOHAA up to
1.11 and add the spearhead files, too.
3) Patch Spearhead up to the latest version (2.15 at the time of this writing)
4) Copy the installed game to a Linux box.

(Suggestions on how to do this without Windows are welcome.)

5) Copy the Linux binaries to that Linux box, so that the "spearhead_lnxded"
binary is in the same directory as the "main" subdir, and the *.so files
are in "mainta". Please note that this is different than the layout of the
original MOHAA Linux server. Do not put the spearhead_lnxded binary in the
"mainta" subdir! Theoretically, an Allied Assault and Spearhead server can
both run out of the same tree without clashing, but this has not been
tested (reports of success and failure are welcome).

6) Run the server. It doesn't have to be run as root, and it doesn't need to
be run from the same directory you installed it in (spearhead will figure
out the correct fs_basedir from where the binary is located). You can punch
in commands at the console, or +exec a script or whatnot like other Q3
games. To get running, you'll need to at least do something like:

g_gametype 1
map dm/mohdm1

There are a LOT of options! Please check out GameAdmins' excellent
example configs for Medal of Honor:

7) Subscribe to the mailing list: to do so, send a blank email to

... discussion of server problems will occur
there, so it will be in your best interest to subscribe.

Mailing list archives (which include discussions about the original Allied
Assault server that are still relevant) are here:

Cool Bug reports go to ... there is a Medal of
Honor component in the bugtracking system. This is ONLY for bug reports
and requests on the Linux version! Win32 bugs will be marked "invalid"!

_PLEASE_ make sure your pakfiles aren't corrupted!

Running "md5sum *.pk3" in the "main" directory should produce this:

172dd011e999bf9d74bf35b63f3b4a07 Pak0.pk3
1e96e77a2b123186986d089e198c8f66 Pak1.pk3
1e2e77461a03f02a9878508a7e035c2f Pak2.pk3

230b78842357b85f9875e164f34d5a0b pak6.pk3

And running "md5sum *.pk3" in the "mainta" directory should produce this:

f030b95c358eeed05891e0bbc9b8e361 pak1.pk3
16fceb0c8410ae87b0c6bae1ae761c5b pak2.pk3

e07af969447d25d91c28f5dd00b84adc pak5.pk3

If it doesn't, your pakfiles are corrupted (or you didn't patch to Spearhead
2.15 on windows), and you should reupload from a trusted source.

Some new cvars and commands that aren't in the win32 version:

- Added cvar: fs_userpath ... defaults to $HOME/.mohaa ... this is used to
load files, in addition to the standard fs_basepath.
- Added cvar: fs_outputpath ... defaults to $HOME/.mohaa ... this is where
files (logs and such) will be written to, since, unlike Windows, the
basepath may not have write permissions. This can be different than the
userpath, but generally you set these to be the same.
- Added cvar: logfilename ... defaults to "qconsole.log" ... use it, along
with fs_outputpath, to put your logfiles somewhere else.
If you set fs_outputpath to "/usr/local/mohaa" and logfilename to "moh.log"
then it will be written to /usr/local/mohaa/main/moh.log ...
- Added command: writeconfig ... will write out some relevant
cvars to {fs_outputpath}/main/config/.
- Added cvar: sv_chatter ... defaults to 0 ... set to 1 to see player's
chat messages on the server console. You do _NOT_ need to set the
"developer" cvar for this to work!
- Added cvar: sv_debuggamespy ... defaults to 0 ... set to 1 see information
going to and coming from gamespy...If you aren't showing up in the server
browser, enable this and see if anything is happening. (This cvar is in the
win32 version, too, but doesn't print anything.) This doesn't need the
"developer" cvar to function.
