Windows configuration for Diablo I, StarCraft, and WarCraft II: BNE Servers

What you need to configure

  • bnetd.conf
  • address_translation.conf
  • versioncheck.conf
  • autoupdate.conf (optional)
  • Router / Firewall
  • Game Data Port (optional)

Edit bnetd.conf

Open the /conf/bnetd.conf file in your preferred editor
(I’ll use edit, a text based editor):

  • click Start --> Run --> cmd
  • Ok
C:\> cd C:\Program Files\pvpgn-1.8.5\conf\
C:\Program Files\pvpgn-1.8.5\conf> edit bnetd.conf

After opening the file in the editor, search for the client verification and upgrades section and look for the following line:

allowed_clients = all

Now you must setup your own options for the clients you will allow to connect to your server:

NoteIcon
Note
Since this guide if for Diablo I, StarCraft, and WarCraft II: BNE; I'll configure it to only allow these clients.


allowed_clients = drtl,star,sexp,w2bn

Edit address_translation.conf

You will need to know your Internet IP Address and LAN IP Address for the Gaming Computer before you can configure the address_tranlation.conf.

To find your Internet IP Address click this link:
http://www.whatismyip.org/

To find your LAN IP Address for the Gaming Computer:

  • click Start --> Run --> cmd
  • Ok
C:\> ipconfig

After running the command, search for the IP Address line.
Look for the following line:

IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.2
NoteIcon
Note
In this case, the LAN IP Address would be 192.168.1.2.


Open the /etc/address_translation.conf file in your preferred editor.
(I’ll use edit, a text based editor):

  • click Start --> Run --> cmd
  • Ok
C:\> cd C:\Program Files\pvpgn-1.8.5\conf\
C:\Program Files\pvpgn-1.8.5\conf> edit address_translation.conf

After opening the file in the editor, search for the Game Translations for clients/games (client data ports) section.
Look for the following line:

#192.168.1.10:6112   1.2.3.4:6118      192.168.1.0/24,10.0.0.0/8  ANY

Now you must uncomment the line by deleting the # and enter your LAN IP Address of Gaming Computer, Internet IP Address, and your LAN Subnet.
(Lets say your Internet IP is 74.22.125.199 and your LAN IP for the Gaming Computer is 192.168.1.2):

192.168.1.2:16112   74.22.125.199:16112      192.168.1.0/24  ANY
NoteIcon
Note
Set the port to 16112 as the above example shows. You will configure the Gaming Computer to use that port.


If you have more than one Gaming Computer on the LAN, you will need to create a new entry for each computer with a unique port.

Edit versioncheck.conf

Open the /etc/versioncheck.conf file in your preferred editor.
(I’ll use edit, a text based editor):

  • click Start --> Run --> cmd
  • Ok
C:\> cd C:\Program Files\pvpgn-1.8.5\conf\
C:\Program Files\pvpgn-1.8.5\conf> edit versioncheck.conf

After opening the file in the editor, search for the -=- Latest Versions -=- No Update Required -=- section.
Look for the following entries:

If those entries exist, then you have the current version checks for these games. You can customize this to allow only certain versions of these games to connect to your server.
Do this by removing the version check entries for the version you don't want to connect to your server.

Download the latest versioncheck.conf if you don't have those entires.

  • right click on the above link
  • select Save Link As...
  • save to C:\Program Files\pvpgn-1.8.5\conf\ folder on your local hard-drive.
  • ensure the file is named versioncheck.conf

Note
You may need to change your system settings to show file extensions to ensure that versioncheck.conf is saved with the correct extension.


Edit autoupdate.conf (optional)

Open the /etc/autoupdate.conf file in your preferred editor.
(I’ll use edit, a text based editor):

  • click Start --> Run --> cmd
  • Ok
C:\> cd C:\Program Files\pvpgn-1.8.5\conf\
C:\Program Files\pvpgn-1.8.5\conf> edit autoupdate.conf

After opening the file in the editor, search for the StarCraft Expansion (Brood War) section.

Next do the same with the StarCraft (original), Diablo (original), and Warcraft II BNE sections.

After the autoupdate.conf has been configured, you will need to download the update files.
The bnftp utility is what we'll use to download the update files:

  • click Start --> Run --> cmd
  • Ok
C:\> cd C:\Program Files\pvpgn-1.8.5\
C:\Program Files\pvpgn-1.8.5\> bnftp --client=DRTL --arch=IX86 --file=DRTL_IX86_100_109.mpq uswest.battle.net 6112
C:\Program Files\pvpgn-1.8.5\> bnftp --client=DRTL --arch=IX86 --file=DRTL_IX86_108_109.mpq uswest.battle.net 6112
C:\Program Files\pvpgn-1.8.5\> bnftp --client=SEXP --arch=IX86 --file=SEXP_IX86_1xx_1161.mpq uswest.battle.net 6112

C:\Program Files\pvpgn-1.8.5\> bnftp --client=STAR --arch=IX86 --file=STAR_IX86_1xx_1161.mpq uswest.battle.net 6112
C:\Program Files\pvpgn-1.8.5\> bnftp --client=STAR --arch=IX86 --file=STAR_IX86_116_1161.mpq uswest.battle.net 6112
C:\Program Files\pvpgn-1.8.5\> bnftp --client=W2BN --arch=IX86 --file=W2BN_IX86_200_202.mpq uswest.battle.net 6112
C:\Program Files\pvpgn-1.8.5\> bnftp --client=W2BN --arch=IX86 --file=W2BN_IX86_201_202.mpq uswest.battle.net 6112

When the update files have finished downloading, you must copy them into the C:\Program Files\pvpgn-1.8.5\files\ folder.

Configure Router / Firewall

You will need to forward port 6112 to your pvpgn server, and forward port 16112 to your Gaming Computer.
Also ensure these ports are allowed through any firewall(s) on the applicable computer(s).

Configure Game Data Port (optional)

To play these games on the same LAN as the pvpgn server, you will need to change the port that these games use, since PvPGN is already the default port (6112). Change the Game Port to the unique port you specified in the address_translation.conf.

  • click Start --> Run --> regedit
  • Ok

After opening the Registry Editor, browse to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Battle.net.

  • click on Configuration
  • right-click on the right half of the window and create a new DWORD value
  • name the new DWORD value Game Data Port
  • right-click on Game Data Port value and select Modify
  • enter 16112 and select Decimal
