File Description

***NOTE*** For some weird reason, File Front seems to want to cut off the ".exe" at teh end of the file. I have tried a few different things and nothing seems to work. So I will get in contact with those guys and see whats up. In the meantime, all you need to do is add the ".exe" extension to end of the file and it will work fine. I apologize for the inconvience. ***/NOTE***

This is the updated Linux/Unix Dedicated Server Runtimes. This allows you to run a dedicated server on a linux box, using the new version 1.01.

Release notes: Battlefield Vietnam free dedicated Linux server version 1.01
Battlefield Vietnam is a registered trademark of Digital Illusions CE AB.

Quick start

- Run the server installer and follow the instructions.

Please note that if you choose to install the server over an existing installation the existing installation directory will be removed!

$ sh

- Modify mods/bfv/settings/serversettings.con to your taste.

$ cd /path/to/installation/bfv
$ vi mods/bfv/settings/serversettings.con

- Modify mods/bfv/settings/maplist.con to your taste.

$ cd /path/to/installation/bfv
$ vi mods/bfv/settings/serversettings.con

Please see the information below to understand the new map list format.

- Run the server from within the top-level directory by typing
./ [arguments] from a shell.

$ cd /path/to/installation/bfv
$ ./ +statusMonitor 1

NOTE: The statusMonitor is now activated by default (because I'm a lazy sod). To revert back to the old behaviour, remove the offending line in serversettings.con

- If you are starting the server from a remote connection you will need to encapsulate it inside a "screen" session to let it stay behind when you log out from the shell.

Example (to start the server):
$ cd /path/to/installation/bfv
$ screen ./ +statusMonitor 1
Now press Ctrl-A followed by Ctrl-D to detach the screen session, leaving it running in the background. You can now log out without affecting the server.

Example (to reconnect to the server status monitor):
$ screen -r

Please see the man page for screen to learn more about what it can do.
