No mods or self-hosted dedicated servers BC2 No mods or self-hosted dedicated servers for Bad Company 2 http://games.on.net/article/7809/No_mods_or_self-hosted_dedicated_servers_for_Bad_Company_2 A major news post at the official Battlefield: Bad Company 2 blog has revealed the security measures DICE will be implementing in this eagerly-anticipated FPS. In addition to implementing PunkBuster anti-cheating software, DICE has confirmed that neither mod tools nor public server files will be made publicly available. "Public Server Files: We will not distribute these publicly. There are many factors for why we have decided this with the biggest factor being security & integrity of our game & Dedicated Servers." Apparently it will still be possible to rent dedicated servers from EA, but custom maps and such are out of the question. The PC Beta Test will run from January 28 through to February 25 -- more details here.
