Just bought a dedicated server...not sure how to run it.

Post by Chexss » Sun Aug 10, 2014 6:56 am

Alright so I may of jumped the gun by purchasing a dedicated server. I have realized I have no idea how to get this server running =P. Any help would be appreciated.

Currently I have two problems/questions.

1. How do I get my server online? I purchased the server but when I go to the game server list in the game and on steam my server is not listed.

When I type in the server IP it says the server was not on a game server when I tried to connect via IP on steam.

2. How would I go about editing my game server for how everyone starts out and so forth? Thank you!:)

They have replied and been a great help. Now that I am figuring stuff out I have a question for some of you.

1. Do I need to put my name in the admin slot if I want ot be considered an admin in game?

2. World Size. I see that it is listed as 25 (assuming that is the default). What size is that in referance to?

4. Server Scenarios...why is there no empty world scenario for me?

5. How do you set what type of starting gear people have when they join my server?

Thank you for your help!

1. You need to follow http://pingperfect.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=64&t=529 to add yourself as an admin
2. World size is the size of the world you are playing in
4. That should be available, I will look into this
5. Editing what people start with would be a mod or changing the world settings

I appreciate it. I will mess around with the settings but so far I haven't figured out a way to change it to that setting since its not listed.

I assume I don't need to submit a ticket?

The current scenarios are available to me...

East Start 1
East Start 2
Lone Survivor
Two Platforms
Astroids
Do not use, undergoing testing
Crashed Red Ship
