Topic: D2GS Won't Create Game
Hey. New here, trying to set up a closed realm for play at home & on the road.
I've got PvPGN, D2DBS and D2CS working properly (at least I think so). D2GS is running however I can't figure out how to get it to create a game.
It always says "You are in line to create a game".
I have logged in to D2GS with telnet, set "maxgame" to anything higher than 0 and still no luck.
I have noticed that in D2CS.log it says the game server is not active. Is there something I have missed in the configuration files? I will upload all logs and files.
Something I noticed as well is that bnetd.log (I'm assuming the PvPGN log) is empty and remains empty.
*I am using PvPGN 1.8.5 and D2GS 1.09d as D2GS 1.13c didn't work at all for me (the service, d2gssvc, stayed running but the server itself, d2gs, would restart infintely with no log)*
Also it should be noted: I am running PvPGN, D2CS, D2DBS and D2GS on a Windows XP VM running inside Windows 10. The VM has its own internal IP address that I can connect to and forward ports from the router. All ports are forwarded correctly and open, and I can telnet in from outside the LAN.
