If you're looking to run a dedicated Windows server for Prey, you will need two things. One is the file provided here, and two are some files from your registered game CD. Details on this are in the readme file that is inside the zip download. This file is about 1.4Mb, and the readme can be viewed below.
Prey Dedicated Server x86-win32 README This document was last updated 07/20/2006 To install: You'll need the data files from the Prey install disc(s). There are two ways of doing this. A) Use an existing install from CD/DVD. For this method, simply drop PREYDed.exe into the folder where you installed Prey (defaults to c:\Program Files\Prey). B) Copy files from the CD/DVD. These instructions presume you're using the original US retail version, shipped on CD-ROM, but the steps are similar for other variations. 1. Create the folder where you want to install Prey (for example, c:\Program Files\PreyDed) 2. Copy PREYDed.exe into that folder. 3. Create a base folder under that folder. 4. Copy the data files from the retail discs. Each CD should have a directory named Setup\Data\Base ... you want the .pk4 files in there copied to the "base" directory that was created for you in step #1. d:\Setup\Data\Base\*.pk4 Running the server: To run the game, double click on PREYDed.exe. The game will load up and you will be presented with a blue console window. When you see the text... Type 'help' for dedicated server info. ...then you can type in... si_map game/dmescher2 spawnServer ...at this point, the server is running and accepting connections. You will want to customize and automate your setup now, but this will verify that the server is functioning as expected. Typing in... help ...will give you a list of useful commands and cvars for setting up your server. Revision history: 07202006 - First release. // end of README.txt
