I've asked this before, but wasn't able to figure it out, would someone be able to instruct me on how to make a multiplayer server?

GOOD QUESTION !!!!

 

WITH PICTURES !!!! 

 

I tried a long while back but I could never get past the "it's not showing up " in the server listings.

There were questions asked but for some reason it was explained, that it was  "painfully obvious".

( What? )

 

Pathetic!

 

Do you want more servers? Do you want wild and crazy missions?

 

EDUCATE  !!!! and they will come!

 

Make a HOW TO, and then MAKE IT STICKY !!!!!

 

I will even make a server and plonk it up. !!! ( probably pretty crap but hey! )

( do I want a fast CPU or more cores??????)

 

What people don't need is any " you must be a bit thick if you can't get your server working".

NO !!!!

 

Not everyone is a IT goon shackled to a desk job! Some of us like to muck about in the "outside world" !

 

So for heavens sake !!!! Just make a manual! ( and no bloody "hints" fffs they are not hints! It's not a game! )

 

 

CLEAR. TERSE. BREVITY. CONCISE.

 

Traps. and how to avoid them!

 

NEVER TURN BACK !!!! ( Quote from "Wings". the classic all time best ever WW1 series  ever. )

I assume you have at least one original map ready to go, if not check-out the YouTube videos on using the mission editor.

 

The server hosting application is DServer.exe located in the bin_game/release folder.  DServer prompts for a .sds file, which contains data and settings used by your server.  In the data folder there is an example sds file called dedicated_config_dogfight , however instead I recommend you use the attached example sds file, to which I have added many more notes, and if used properly should act as a tutorial in itself.

Attached Files

Thanks Arty_Effem, just a question, do I have to run the server on a different computer that the one I'm playing on?

You can host and play on the same machine, but in practice it's usually more convenient to run it on a separate machine. For example you may want to reboot your gaming machine without stopping the server.  An unused laptop if you have one is a good choice; probably quieter and will use less power.

Another question, I'd like to test my mission, how do I add it to the server?
