How to set up dedicated server?

#1 Post by MarisaG » Wed Jul 10, 2019 4:15 am

I have the latest version from the PPA for ubuntu, and I can start freeoriond but it just sits there with no output and if I put the host name in the client and try and connect the screen goes black and then just sits there. Is there a freeoriond config file to set desired settings?

Thx!

First thing for dedicated server is you need to provide --hostless argument to freeoriond executable.

Check it again. Do you get to multiplayer lobby? Next depends on what you want to play on the server.
