Mitch Posted March 5, 2014 Share Posted March 5, 2014 (edited) DISCLAIMER: Follow this guide at your own risk! These are the steps that I had to follow in order to get the (Windows) Dedicated Server working in a Linux OS. NOTE: This guide should more or less be the same for most of the major linux distributions, the package installer will change depending on what OS you're running (Eg. pacman for Arch). NOTE: As far as I can tell, it is currently impossible to run a dedicated server without having some form of GUI NOTE: I'm assuming that you know your way around a Linux system, I'm not going to go over the basics here. NOTE: Apart from the package installs, you should not need to run any command as the root user. Hello! This guide will hopefully show you what you need to do in order to get the Renegade X dedicated server running on your Linux server. This guide was ran on a Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS server. 1. Install Wine: sudo apt-get install wine This will install Wine along with everything needed to get a basic VNC Server running. 2. With Wine installed, we can now install the required libraries. Run the following commands: set WINEARCH=win32 winetricks -q dotnet40 xact_jun2010 vcrun2010 d3dx11_43 This will install the required libraries. 3. Upload Renegade X You'll need to upload a copy of Renegade X to the server, since there's no GUI to use the installer. Once uploaded, configure your server settings. 4. Starting The Server You'll most likely want to use something like screen to run the server, unless you intend to run the server only while you're logged in. To start the server, do something like the following (These commands will more or less be the same as if you were starting up a Windows Dedicated Server, apart from the fact that you use UDK.com instead of UDK.exe): cd wine cmd * Wine CMD Starts... * UDK.com server CNC-Field?AdminPassword=password123?maxplayers=40 -port=777 At this point, the server should start, and you should be able to connect to it ! The VNC Viewer window can be closed at any point. If you have any feedback, or feel that something should be done differently, let me know.
