Post subject:  Linux Dedi

Was thinking about setting up a dedi server for D3. My server runs CentOS with only the server shell. (I do everything through SSH)

Does anyone know how or if it's really possible to setup a stable / fast dedi with D3 on this setup?

If so, please enlight. :D

I don't think the linux dedicated server (was there even one?) even worked correctly. There must be a reason I set up a win 2000 box for my D3 dedicated server, think the linux one was very buggy.

Sure that works.

You must only run servers which use a correct checksum (such as Stadium, Halcyon, ...).

Test it out here: d3://85.25.136.157:2098

EDIT: When 1.5 comes out, there won't be any disadvantages.

Care to elaborate on how to go about setting one up?

Depends on what system the server is running (e.g. SuSE 10.2 or Debian Lenny or ...) - so please tell me.

The point is, that the original Outrage Linux server isn't working on newer systems (always gets a reliable buffer overrun).

Here's how you can check it:

1.) Download http://descent3.com/files/linux/descent ... 386.tar.gz to your server and unpack it
2.) Go into the descent3-directory and put the d3.hog in there
3.) Edit the Dedicated.cfg (don't forget to upload the mission)
4.) Run the server with ./descent3 -dedicated Dedicated.cfg -useport 2098
5.) Try connecting to the server from your local machine, using serverip:2098. If you can't connect because the client hangs on \"Receiving data\", then you need a workaround (using Loki's executables) which I will post later since this is a bit more complicated.

Thanks for the info. The server is running on CentOS (stated that in my first post).

I'll give this stuff a try soon and see how it goes. :D
