Login to your control panel, go to the game server you want to edit, click the Configuration Files button, then click the Configuration Editor for the Game.ini file

Scroll all the way to the bottom of this page, and paste the code i will put below, into the other options box.

Scroll up again and in the "Override Max Experience Points Player" put 582725, (1 more than the max you set) or if you've added more levels, the final number for the maximum level, then save, and start the server.

To Add More Levels

Copy and paste the above text into a notepad on your computer for easier editing.

At the end, before the closing bracket ). Add:

,ExperiencePointsForLevel[163]=582724

Remember the , ! It is in the above code snippet, make sure you dont miss it. It should be before the E.

Change the 163, to the next level 164, and the numbers after the =, to how many experience points you want a player to have to get for this level. It must be bigger than the previous one!

Repeat this, continuing to add levels onto it until you have added however many you want. Make sure the last one has the closing bracket after it! ).

Then follow the steps for adding this to the file, as described above in the steps at the top of this article.

Get an Error When Saving?

In most cases, this is because there are too many lines in the other options box, to fix this:

Copy all the text in the Other Options box, paste it into a notepad doc on your computer, then remove it from the box.

Make sure the Override Max Experience Points Player is set correctly to the maximum experience points you have set

Click Save. It should then save successfully. Go back, and instead of clicking on the Configuration Editor button, click the Text Editor instead

Scroll to the bottom of this file, paste all the code you pasted into the notepad doc earlier, and click save.

You can then start the server.

When adding to the text editor, if you save again in the configuration editor for that file, it will override what's added manually via the text editor. So for future edits, you must do it via the Text Editor for the Game.ini file. Or, if you still use the Configuration Editor, just remember to paste the level code back to the bottom of the file with the text editor after.
