Creating own dedicated server

Postby Cyan. » Tue Dec 02, 2008 3:30 pm

Can someone please tell me how hard (or easy) it is to create your own server and what you should need to know to make one? I would like to make one of my own because I want to display my future maps on it :D.

Depends on where you're coming from. If you have run anything publicly accessible before, it should be relatively easy. It'll be download, install, edit a config file, put your maps in the right place, and run.

However, you'll still have to wait for the public release.

Well to be honest I don't know much more of a computer then how to start Multiwinia on it, and how to download :D something. So where can I find a guide for this or do you have to figure it out all by yourself?

By public release, you mean release of map-editor? It would be great if I could get that earlier :), but I suspect that won't happen? Ah well I basically got 5 maps drawn out, so to model them shouldn't take that long right?

I really can't fuckin waite!

That (you need to create your maps, after all) and Dedwinia, the dedicated server.

Yeah that sounds logical after all:). Hey how about a secret code?! If you answer on this post I'll take it the map-editer will be here in a month, if not then I assume it will TAKE LONGER THEN THAT aarGH. No I can't deal with that, I'll just assume I got back on your mentally ignore lists heh :P. Don't worry if you tell tho, I guess we are the only ones rooming this forums now haha.

Ps. YES, I am bored and have no live!

Considering that patch release is IV responsibility, what makes you think that bert, or anyone one else outside IV (and possibly even inside), have any idea when the map editor will be released?

That means that we have an idea on what IV is working on, not when it will be released.

Haha, he answered!! I am so happy!! But for real guys, how you like my background story?:

These once peaceful Darwinia's lived in this forgotten part of the world, yet eventually war reached also to here and the two groups who lived here began attacking each other. It was then that something magically happened, from out of nowhere a rivir sprang dividing the two warring factions. But it wouldn't last long before the the malignant Multiwinia's invented the ACP with wich they could cross the peaceful rivir. And so they continued fighting, trying to conquer the other side of there lands, where the grass seemed always greener and the statues bigger!

Any translation mistakes made by automatic translator?
