    Looking for rules regarding New Players Only configuration

    Hi, its been a long time but im back setting up a BF4 server for the club. I will setup the rcon later today.

    I was curious if anyone knows the rules behind setting up a New Players Only server. I did not find anything in the PDF admin docs i downloaded today.

    Is it a preset value?
    Is it a vars value ?
    Is is only for Official, Ranked ?

    Anyone have any info on this for BF4?

    Thanks dave

    It's an official preset, called NOOB.
    It's in the Official Server Docs. Page 7 of BF4 PC Server Administration.pdf:

    You can download them here:
    https://forum.myrcon.com/showthread....st-Server-Docs


    vars.preset – used to set the server preset: NORMAL, HARDCORE, INFANTRY, NOOB, CLASSIC, or
    CUSTOM. You can also set the argument <lockPresetSetting> to true. This will override any settings
    that would conflict with the preset.
    I won't do support via PM: if you need help, make a topic on the public forums.

    OK thanks so much for that i was kinda hoping it was a vars config as i would love to do a NOOB Infantry only server. But i dont believe there can be two presets at the same time, so ill have to make my choice.

    vars.preset is just like settings generator, if you set <lockPresetSetting> argument to false then you can change any preset related vars that coming after vars.preset. In your case try this in you startup.txt:
    ...
    vars.preset INFANTRY false
    ...
    vars.IsNoobOnlyJoin true
    ...
