It's easy to configure your Pingperfect Xonotic Server. Just follow the steps below.

  1. Open the 'Configuration Files' section from your control panel.
  2. Select the 'Text Editor' option next to 'data\server.cfg'
  3. Refer to the Example Configuration below and change the respective settings where you need to do so in order to configure your server to your desires.

// A setting needs to be surrounded with " if it contains special characters like space, semicolon (separates commands) or starts with // (begins a comment for the rest of the line or next semicolon).  While just "" means 'no/empty setting'.


// Everything has some sensible defaults so you do NOT really need to change anything.  But here are some settings you SHOULD change to make it 'YOUR' server.  IF so remove the // from the line start and change them to your liking.

sv_public 1   // 0 if the server should not be on the public servers list

sv_status_privacy 1    // 1 hides IP addresses from "status" replies shown to clients, 0 shows them. 

hostname "Pingperfect.com : Xonotic Test"    // this name will appear on the server list (the $g_xonoticversion gets replaced with the current version)

sv_motd "Welcome to another Pingperfect.com server"    // this message (unless "") is displayed to players on connect

maxplayers 1    // number of players allowed on the server - do not change from your purchased amount - will stop your server from working

log_file "server.log"    // server console output will also be copied to this file. This: "${serverconfig}.log" uses variable substitution to make the logfile have the same name as your config file with .log appended which is useful if you run several servers

g_start_delay 15    // delay before the game starts to let players join the server first

// List of maps to play on the server.  Set to "" to autodetect (which would enumerate ALL maps.  Maps that don't support the current game mode will be skipped, so you don't need to remove them here.

g_maplist_shuffle 1    // 0 always selects the next map out of g_maplist (but then better set g_maplist_votable 0 below to prevent repetitive votes), 1 will select random maps each time

g_maplist_mostrecent_count 3    // number of maps that have to be played before a map can be repeated

// LIMITS: how long a match will last before the next map starts (-1 means use the map default, 0 = unlimited, please note that the variables fraglimit/timelimit can NOT be globally used for this but only DURING a match is being played)

g_ctf_win_mode 0    // CTF win mode: 0 = caps only, 1 = caps + points as tie breaker, 2 = points only

g_ctf_ignore_frags 1    // set to 1 to ignore kills except for FC kills

// TEAMS for key hunt (change this to 2, 3, 4 to set a fixed keyhunt style)

g_keyhunt_teams_override -1    // teams for KH

// GAME MODE: what type of server do you want to host?

// possible values: dm (deathmatch), tdm (team deathmatch), dom (domination), ctf (ctf), rune (runematch), lms (last man standing), arena (arena), kh (keyhunt), as (assault), ons (onslaught), race (race), nexball (nexball)
