Mini Linux Quake 2 Server Setup Guide
Here are some step by step instructions to get a Quake 2 server up and running on Linux. This was was sent in by a reader and therefor I won't be able to answer many questions concerning it. I hope it proves to be usefull. If any of you Linux Guru's would like to add to this please let me know firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is how I managed due to the Linux guy leaving (my knowledge of Linux is
non-existent :-() ). We have one Linux & one NT box. I Also FTP'd files between
machines (NT box) on our network, but this should be pretty much similar for a Linux
How I Setup Q2CTF on LINUX (this is if Quake 2 is already setup on Linux)
This is a strange bit below, but it works :-)
./quake2 +set dedicated 1 +set port 27920 +game ctf +exec server.cfg
If you set it up remembering about the gamei386.so (easy to get these mixed up) variant
file and the pak files the rest is a piece of cake. Once you do this you can set up
many mod variants as you like (as this took me about a week to learn by myself - my second
CTF variant server took me 1 hour to complete :-)
Oh, one last thing, the PAK files are actually the maps. If your CTF server is looking for say map q2ctf1 or maps/q2ctf1.bsp etc etc, then you haven't matched the right pak file that corresponds with the gamei386.so file.
That's basically it (and it fits on a page - yeehaa)
Cheers & Good Luck
