It is not only possible to play versions 1.01 and 1.07 with Rune Classic, but also to host servers for these versions of the game.
To run a Rune 1.01 server from Rune Classic you need to:
1. Open Rune.ini located in your Rune Classic games System folder
2. Comment out the following lines by putting ‘ or // infront of them:
//ServerPackages=VWCreatures //ServerPackages=JunModel //ServerPackages=HallsOfValhalla
3. Rename JunModel.u to OldJunModel.u
4. Rename HallsOfValhalla.u to OldHallsOfValhalla.u
5. Start the server with the following command:
rune.exe DM-Hildir?Listen -VERS=101 -server
That is all! Now you can host a dedicated 1.01 server from you Rune Classic game and people who have normal Rune will be able to join your server! You do not even have to be connected to Steam when you start the server this way.
To run a Rune 1.07 server you would just change -VERS=101 to -VERS=107.
CountryFilter is a server mod which lets you choose which countries can connect to your server. You can block connections from certain countries and allow all others or allow connections from certain countries and block all others. It does not have to be downloaded by players, it should exist only on the server.
The settings can be changed in CountryFilter.ini, to block or allow a certain country just add the country’s two letter code to the correct line. Countries are separated by commas.
The country codes can be found here:
[CountryFilter.CountryFilter] BlockedCountries=it,no,fr AllowedCountries=
Block connections from Italy,Norway and France and allow everything else.
[CountryFilter.CountryFilter] BlockedCountries= AllowedCountries=pl
Only allow connections from Poland, block everything else.
You need to have Nephthys server security mod installed for CountryFilter mod to work. It can be downloaded from here for versions 1.01 and 1.07:
If you need Nephthys for versions 1.00 or 1.04 leave a comment here and maybe I can help you.
