Multiplayer QCDE over Wifi Lan not working on Fedora 29 KDE and Ubuntu Linux

#1

Post by Cigam » Mon Dec 31, 2018 6:25 pm

Short Version:
I am running a newly installed Fedora 29 KDE edition. Zandronum is not in the repositories (including rpmfusion nonfree tainted and user made copr repos), so I decided to just use the archive download. After some fiddling I got it to run (explained in long version), and I added the QCDE mod to it as well. However when I try to run a server so that I can play multiplayer, it works locally from same computer as server, but not when others on my network try to connect. When they try to connect it either crashes (detailed in long version) or gets stuck in a loop of just trying to connect, never actually connecting. I have tried doing the port forward and some other things but it still has not been working.

Long version:
As stated above I am using the archive version to run Zandronum. However when I tried to run the game it gave me an error of a missing library file of libbz2.so.1.0 After doing some searching online I found this page that told me how to do a symlink to fix the issue.
website:
https://github.com/electron-userland/electron-builder/issues/1998
solution:

Code: Select all

sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/libbz2.so.1.0.6 /usr/lib64/libbz2.so.1.0
So now with that fixed Zandronum would launch and run the game. I copied my doom and doom2.wad over and the game played correctly. I had to modify it to be opengl to run better, but all worked. The reason for my using Zandronum was to play the QCDE mod, and most of the levels on it were designed specifically for zandronum. So I downloaded all of the files listed here:
https://www.moddb.com/mods/quake-champions-doom-edition/downloads

which if the page changes was these files:
QC: Doom Edition v2.0.1 (Full release)
Dec 14 2018 Full Version

QC:DE Voxels 2.0

QC:DE HD Portraits v2.0

QCDE "Half Lives" Monster Pack / Theme
Nov 30 2018 Full Version

QCDE Heretic Monster Pack / Theme
Aug 31 2018 Full Version

QC:DE Announcer (George Exley's)
May 18 2018 Full Version

QCDE Soundtrack, update 2.0
Nov 30 2018 Full Version
After downloading and extracting all of those, I put pk3 files in the same directory as zandronum, and then proceeded to make a launcher bash script to load everything correctly. Here is the script I made to run the game, it is called runQCDE.sh:

Code: Select all

#!/bin/bash
./zandronum -iwad DOOM2.WAD -file AeonQCDE.pk3 QCDEmaps2.0.pk3 QCDEv2.0.1.pk3 QCDEmus2.0.pk3 GeorgeExleyAnnouncer.pk3 QCDE--HalfLives.pk3 QCDE--HDfaces2.0.pk3 QCDE--Heretic.pk3 QCDE--Voxels2.0.pk3
That works and loads everything without issue as far as I can tell when running the game. it outputs this set of logs in the terminal if this will be useful to understand for later when trying to do the server:

TITLEMAP - Quake Champions: Doom Edition
After making sure everything worked, I customized controls and settings in the game, and then copied my folder with all of these pk3 and zandronum to 2 other computers, I also copied my ini file so that we all had similar controls by default. If it helps this is my ini file incase there is an issue there as well:

Next I was trying to setup a server that would allow all 3 of us to play together, but when I tried to launch the zandronum-server it threw an error of:
zandronum-server: error while loading shared libraries: libcrypto.so.1.0.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Which I found odd because it has that libcrypto.so.1.0.0 file in the directory where the zandronum-server application is located. However to correct that issue I did similar to the previous library issue but instead of symlinking it I copied it to where it needed to be, with this command from that directory:

Code: Select all

sudo cp ./libcrypto.so.1.0.0 /usr/lib64/libcrypto.so.1.0.0
With that now copied to the correct spot it allowed me to run the server now with no more errors. I did not copy the other 2 libraries to that spot as well. Not sure if I need to but since it did not throw an error I just left them. The only other 2 were these, if I need to copy those let me know:
libfmodex64-4.24.16.so
liboutput_sdl.so
Now that the server can run the best instructions I could find for setting up a server was this website for the windows cli:
https://wiki.zandronum.com/Personal_Game_Server_on_Windows_CLI

So I designed my own script and config file accordingly, and added some extra commands into it for the QCDE game as well. First here is my script that will load the config file and the appropriate files with it. It is very similar to my other one. this one I have name configServerQCDE.sh:

Code: Select all

#!/bin/bash
./zandronum-server -host +exec ConfigServerQCDE.txt -iwad DOOM2.WAD -file AeonQCDE.pk3 QCDEmaps2.0.pk3 QCDEv2.0.1.pk3 QCDEmus2.0.pk3 GeorgeExleyAnnouncer.pk3 QCDE--HalfLives.pk3 QCDE--HDfaces2.0.pk3 QCDE--Heretic.pk3 QCDE--Voxels2.0.pk3

Warning: Can't find authhostname !
That does start a server and I can connect to it on the same machine with using either connect localhost or connect kalachakra which is my computers hostname. However when the 2 other people would try to browse for the connection, they can see it but it keeps crashing when they try to connect.

But another thing I changed in the ini, was I removed the authhostname and masterhostname values, that is why it shows the cant find authhostname warning. I did that because without those hostnames it instantly loads, because all we want to do is run a game locally. With the default values in the hostnames it would lockup or crash Zandronum whenever we tried to browser and would throw hundreds of errors saying:
"WARNING! Please wait a full 10 seconds before refreshing the server list."
The 2 other people trying to connect are not using the same OS that I am, they are using Ubuntu based systems with KDE as their DE, so they are both Kubuntu 18.04.1

On one of the machines when browsing and seeing my server and clicks the join server, it crashes with this output on the terminal:

Script error, "QCDEv2.0.1.pk3:cvarinfo.qcd" line 8:
cvar '_PLEASE_DOUBLE_CHECK_THAT_YOURE_LOADING_QCDE_ONCE_' already exists

Remove '_PLEASE_DOUBLE_CHECK_THAT_YOURE_LOADING_QCDE_ONCE_' and all other conflicting cvars from your ini and restart Zandronum to continue.
I have actually tried remming out that _PLEASE_DOUBLE_CHECK_THAT_YOURE_LOADING_QCDE_ONCE_ cvar from the pk3 file on the server and the client machine, and it still will not connect. It just gives the next variable error of this when I try:

Code: Select all

Script error, "QCDEv2.0.1.pk3:cvarinfo.qcd" line 12:
cvar 'bot_weaponize' already exists

Remove 'bot_weaponize' and all other conflicting cvars from your ini and restart Zandronum to continue.
So remming out the cvars from it made no difference on that machine. However on the other Kubuntu machine it gives this error when doing the same process of browsing and joining:

Code: Select all

gdb-respfile-rLGCh8:1: Error in sourced command file:
ptrace: No such process.
Bus::open: Can not get ibus-daemon's address. 
IBusInputContext::createInputContext: no connection to ibus-daemon
I am not sure what to do from that error. Also when either of the clients try connecting from the console using the command: connect kalachakra it goes to the correct IP address and tries to connect, but it just repeatedly says connecting to 192.168.0.99:10666 with no success and neither computers show up in the server as attempts to connect.

I have also tried adding my computer and the port forward for 10666 to my modem/router, but it should not be needed since I am not trying to do an internet connection, and I can get other games to work since every port is available. So currently I do not have that port forward config applied. I removed it after other tests.

At this point I am at a loss on what to try next. I would like to do multiplayer, but I am not sure what I am missing or have incorrect in the server configuration or setup. Any thoughts on what might fix it? or what else I can try? Thanks.

Try using GZDoom 1.8.6 which should make stuff easier. https://zdoom.org/wiki/Multiplayer can help you, just remember to use -extratic to make sure no packets are lost in transmission.

When using Zandronum to play online in Puppy Linux (basically tiny Ubuntu) i also had tons of problems playing with it so i just switched over to GZDoom and stuff just worked fine.

Thanks, with some configuration, I was able to get gzdoom to work. I did not get the 1.8.6 version of gzdoom but the newest version 3.7.x, not sure what the difference would be in usability. It is still a bit laggy, even with the -extratic option, but it works pretty well and was able to play multiplayer. The levels do not work quite right and it constantly outputs that it cant run scripts, because gzdoom doesnt have the features of zandronum, but it at least ran.

Still not sure why the Zandronum is not working. I also had the other people try creating a server in Zandronum on their computers but it puts their IP for the server at 127.0.0.1 as localhost, so it is not broadcasting for some reason. That might be why they cant connect to me, because for some reason its only starting the game on their computers as local host not wireless IP. Not sure what to check for that, but its at least something new to research.

I will use gzdoom for the time being to do multiplayer, until there is something else to try with zandronum. If I ever get it working, I will post how on here, but for now I am still stumped on the zandronum version.

GZDoom 1.8.6 has a similar feature set to Zandronum and runs leaps and bounds faster than the new builds

Zandronum netplay in Linux can sometimes be confusing, but have you tried hosting it in another computer?
