Help Setting Up Dedicated Server Please?

Postby Mattie Excelsior » Thu Oct 06, 2016 10:10 pm UTC

So I plan on bringing a good sized clan over to Unvanquished because it's a pretty fun game I noticed it's more of an upgraded version of Tremulous which is absolutely' Fantastic.
I'm having issues going about starting the server, I put my Server.cfg in Unvanquished/Config/Server.cfg
How do I setup an Executable to run the server, older games are a pain in the rear to host a Dedicated server on I have noticed that! :tongue:
Is it possible some one could just upload everything I need to make setting up a Dedicated server alot easier + a tutorial how to actually get you're server started/what to do then just lines and lines of how to setup the server config files? I get that part but beyond that I'm lost.

Thanks!

Hi, welcome to the game! :bsuit:

I guess the config/server.cfg files are lowercase, btw, you just have to configure this file then run daemon…
One important thing is to load a map in server.cfg (just put "map parpax" as last line for example), because without map, the server shutdowns itself automatically.

Here are advanced tweaks (map rotation, bot management, etc.) but it's pointless until you have a working basic server.cfg first: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1745

I guess it will not prevent the server to run, this issue is minor (it's just to geolocalize players, it will not prevent them to play), try to join from another computer as player. ;-)
