Soldier of Fortune 2 dedicated server for Linux



Raven released this "tool" to setup a dedicated server on a Linux pc...

Note: There seems to be an issue with running RMG maps, but Raven is working on a solution



Soldier of Fortune II dedicated server for Linux, version 1.00

With much gratitude to James Drews for compiling this and sorting out the problems.

This archive file contains:
-  readme.txt: The file your reading now
 - sof2ded: Soldier of Fortune II linux binary

Install instructions:

On your linux box:
-Create a directory for the game. example:
    mkdir /usr/local/games/sof2
-Copy the linux binary into this directory
-Mark the file as executable. example:
    chmod a+x /usr/local/games/sof2/sof2ded
-Create the 'base' directory. example:
     mkdir /usr/local/games/sof2/base
   Note, YES, it is case sensitive and the program will look for all lower case
-Copy the files from the base directory of the retail CD into the base directory you just created. You will need all the .pk3 files (including musicandsound.pk3, skins.pk3, etc) if you want to run a "pure" server.

Running the dedicated server:

-"cd" into the game directory (cd /usr/local/games/sof2)
-Run the binary. An example is:
    ./sof2ded +exec server.cfg

This example assumes you have created a configuration file called server.cfg and placed it into the "base" directory.

By default, the server will run in "internet" play mode and advertise its presense to the master server. If you wish to have a LAN play only server, change your server config to set dedicated 1, or change the command line to be:
    ./jk2ded +set dedicated 1 + exec server.cfg

-The game will look in the base directory or home directory of the user running the 
  program (~/.sof2/)
-If you set the logfile option to 1, the files will be stored in your user
  home directory in ~/.sof2/base/
