Cannot load any config file or mod into my server

Hey y’all!

I’m new here, i am trying to setup my own server using a VM. I have installed the VU server following the guide, i am able to see my server into VU Servers list and i am able to connect to it.

Unfortunately, when i try to add some info into MapList.txt or Startup.txt, i do not see any change into the VU Server console. Also, i cannot connect using ProCon to the server (VM Antivirus and Firewall are both disabled).

Same for the Mods folder, if i add the file and i type the mod name into ModList.txt file and i reload the server, nothing change

Am i missing something?


Guessing that you run the server on your PC. Be sure to edit right files.
Default server path files configuration for vu is

%UserProfile%\Documents\Battlefield 3\Server\Admin

Make sure edit files and save it before start the server.

For PRoCon try to add argument when launching the server (this is default port)

No, the server is running on a dedicated VM in VMware, it’s a Virtual Machine with no graphics card. I have only installed Origin and Battlefield 3 Premium.

To be honest, i have resolved my issue while i was writing you the out of my DIR command :smiley:

Directory of C:\Users\adminbf3\Documents\Battlefield 3\Server\Admin

21/08/2022 11:32 0 BanList.txt
21/08/2022 11:28 94 MapList.txt.txt
21/08/2022 11:30 14 ModList.txt.txt
21/08/2022 11:30 Mods
21/08/2022 11:31 104 Startup.txt.txt

Files were saved as “.txt.txt” because extension format was hidden in windows settings :rage:

I’ve changed the extension and i’m now able to manage map rotation, server password, server name, mods etc.

Also, i can use PROCon since files are correctly configured now

Thank you so much for your help! :slight_smile:
