Post Server Hosts
So you want to host an AOW server?

It's a lot easier than you think to set it up.

The required files are: (as of revision 834) (point wget to these)

Why the separate, much smaller file for server hosts, you wonder? This prevents the server from loading unnecessary files, thereby saving memory and disk space - which is a precious commodity for some server set-ups. If you are hosting and playing from the same machine, then it is recommended you download and use the full static file, linked in the Download section.

To start the server, use this command:
skulltag -host -teamgame -iwad doom2.wad aow2_omega_r834.pk3 omega_static_r834.pk3 +exec yourconfig.cfg +logfile yourlogfile.log

substituting "skulltag" for "skulltag-server" on POSIX hosts, of course (Linux, Mac OSX, FreeBSD).

Recommended settings:
sv_website ""
addmap aow01
addmap aow02
addmap aow03
addmap aow04
addmap aow05
addmap aow06
addmap aow07
addmap aow08
addmap aow09
addmap aow10
addmap aow11
addmap aow12
addmap aow13
addmap aow14
addmap aow15
dmflags 279684
dmflags2 270532722
compatflags 0
compatflags2 0
sv_maxplayers 24
sv_maxclients 24
sv_maxteams 2

These are only recommended settings, of course, everything else is purely your preference, but these settings should get your server started. You can then change and alter settings as needed. Note that some dmflags are enforced by the AOW ACS engine, but they are only ones that are critical for the game to function properly.
