2 fixes are available for this, both of which you'd have known if you'd read both the comments at the top of example.conf and the error message you received.

Option 1) Remove "/*" from line 196 (LEAVE the "*/" there) and remove line 197 all together
Option 2) Change line 197 from "/" to "*/"

As for which lines they are, you pasted your config to a pastebin which numbers lines....

The example configuration file is designed to be a guideline and an example. I strongly recommend you either delete ALL the comments and non-configuration text from your configuration or start with a fresh configuration. You can also find the example configuration that I have authored here: https://bitbucket.org/stealth/unreal32/ ... onf.unreal
