Hello everyone! I very like this game and I want to setup my own game server running on my own computer. How can I do this? Are there some special applications or everything is built-in game?

Server files are only available to the game server service providers (Multiplay etc)

So you cannot host a server from your own computer

You have to rent a Server unless you have the Equipment and Contracts with EAsy to set up a Server

I don't know exactly how this works, but afaik EA selects the companies that can be a server provider.

To be a game server provider you need to have a company and a server park that runs all the games that is provided. You need to have staff that can handle support, activate servers, install software, hardware techinichians etc

In short they will not give it to individuals

Ok. Now it is clear for me. So it's easier to play on public servers Smile Thank you for your quick reply!

No server files will be released except to authorized companies providing hosting for rental servers. User will NOT have access to the server files.

I believe the tutorial Solid is taking about is how to properly and effectively manage and administer a Rental Server.

I think Solid meant something like the tutorial in BFH, where you enter a map by yourself and are taught the basics of the game. This would be great for new players and for those looking to improve their flying skills without upsetting the jet whores.

That is all weird because more servers = more people buying battlefunds = more money for EA, but who cares.

We constantly ensure that we are more servers available for Battlefield Play4Free than there is demand, to allow players to access servers without having to constantly wait in queues should they wish to.

Have you tried using the server browser to find more 24/7 Oman servers? I think the OG chaps may have one or two.

you cant and never will be able to run private servers for this game and you can only rent servers through select server providers.
