'Team Factor' - Demo Patch 3 & Linux Server Software

by Rainier on Aug. 23, 2002 @ 7:40 p.m. PDT | Filed under News

For those of you who downloaded the latest demo and can't find on-line servers any more, here's a small fix. To apply it, just replace the file data/net.cfg found in the Team Factor installation folder. Then you'll be able to play on-line again. And if you fear to do this "dirty stuff" with overwriting files in folders you didn't create, just use the latest Patch 1.06. Its only disadvantage is that it's slightly bigger. You can download the Team Factor Linux server software. Includes dedicated server option also for LAN (this option was not available in our default Win server software)
